This is a serious game changer and seems like such an obvious solution now. Best of both OLED and LCD.

Well, OLED is still superior as it has the ability to turn off pixels. Hisense's solution has simply masked the problem with two pixel grids.

It is a novel solution, but I wouldn't kill off its competitors yet. There remains a lot of unknowns, such as how much this solution adds to pixel response times and other factors.

My first question is this. Does the tech behind it introduce a lot of lag? It does need to convert any image into a 1080p black/white colour map, even when using non-native resolution content.

This is definitely a cool technology, it but I won't be sold on it until those concerns are addressed.

Well it's certainly not an in-depth video on the tech, but Linus claimed on his CES coverage that it's perfectly fine to game on, despite additional processing required.

According to the manufacturer it's also cheaper than OLED despite the complexity.

And yeah obviously it won't kill off the competition, plain LCD will continue to be cheaper and OLED the premium choice for completely dark blacks - but it seems that this might be close enough to actual black to not matter, while being brighter and lacking burn-in issues.

It's definitely something that I look forward to seeing on a website like RTINGs, as CES showcases will typically show things in a best-case scenario.

Can't wait to see TFTCentrals tear down and review.
