The most eco-friendly display/monitor/screen possible.

    I’m thinking of a hypothetical indoor monitor for a TV/computer. This
    display does not use plasma, LCD, or a backlight to any extent.
    Instead it relies purely on ILEDs for emission of light, colors, and
    images. As with most screens, each pixel contains a red, green, and
    blue subpixel. However, in this hypothetical monitor, each subpixel
    consists of a single ILED.

    ILED = Inorganic Light Emitting Diode

    Each pixel – and its respective subpixels – are as small as physically-
    possible given the state of today’s technology. The screen contains as
    many pixels per area physically-possible with today’s technology.
    These specs ensure that highest possible image resolution.

    What would be the disadvantages of this purely-ILED monitor – besides
    the cost?

    Would refresh rate apply to this type of monitor? If so, what would be
    the maximum refresh-rate possible with this monitor?

    I think this type of display is the most energy-efficient possible
    considering today’s technology. Am I right?

    ILED kicks LCD’s butt anyday.

    Those so-called “LED TVs” in the current market as simply LCDs with
    LED backlights. These evil marketers are so manipulative and the
    customers who fall for them are so unwise.

    LCDs reek. When an LCD monitor is turned on, it required more watts to
    stay dark than to be bright. My hypothetical ILED monitor does the
    exact opposite and is more eco-friendly because it doesn’t waste
    energy using a backlight.

    My ILED screen totally kills both plasma and LCD technology. ILED also
    is significantly more energy-efficient than OLED.

    Any chance of my theoretical ILED display appearing in department
    stores in the next year?

    I have not heard of the hypothetical screen technlogy. Thanks for
    sharing the information with us GreenXenon. The way technlogy that is
    going these days it does not take long for the latest development to
    be out of date and replaced with something else. I think it's a matter
    of cost. It will be a while before I update my LCD screen. There was a
    major improvement between LCD and CRT screens but may not be such a
    major different between LCD and ILED.

    While an LCD may need more watts to stay dark than to be bright, How
    does its actual power consumption compart to an array of LEDs? LCD is a
    very low power technology.

    Not a chance in hell. You overlooked one minor little issue, which would be
    the cost of fabricating such a display vs. an AMOLED or LCD module, and
    to the potential power savings over either of those technologies (esp.
    So look into that, why don't you, and come back and let us know what you've
    found out when you're done.

    AFAIK, lack of money is the only issue canceling the existence of my
    hypothetical ILED display. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    If by "lack of money," you mean "the thing would be too damned expensive,"
    you're right. If not, consider yourself corrected.

    Here's the tech you are talking about:
    -it could be a while before they are able to make them as small as
    needed for display resolution.
