I'm also curious (I'm not an expert in this field, I just really like high refresh rates) if others on this forum could answer the question of why these displays simply don't exist already. I assume manufacturing cost but even something like that should be assuaged by a high price tag. Is it simply too niche? What are the downsides to this technology? What's the lifetime of such a product?
As for the OP, I would buy a ~70cm 1920x1080x240Hz option at around the $600-$700 price you're quoting. I would expect to keep it until the rest of the world becomes aware of a higher standard.
By the way: If there was a Kickstarter for this product, I would not back it. The only way I will ever purchase something at a value of greater than $100 is if it's for sale, not for "possible sale." Just putting that out there.
I believe it's due to the low pixel lifetime and high probability of dead pixels per produced display. These have gotten better over time but I'm unsure if they managed to reach a point where we could have a full 1080 display with zero pixel death. Anyone can feel free to correct me on this.flood wrote:maybe I've asked before, but why haven't oled's taken off in the desktop market?
