Over the past year, I've been catching articles about this type of technology which is starting to be sold.

My understanding is this technology is competitive with OLEDs. Supposed to have a superior picture and costs less than OLEDs.

What do you think? Have you seen it?

I believe the first commercially available ones were just shown at CES last week. So I doubt anyone has seen one yet.
Unless they were at CES?

I thought Samsungs were already being sold somewhere (besides CES). To add on to what I've already said, QDT has been described as being most comparable with OLEDs (but not plasmas for a comparison) so I gather these new tvs will replace OLEDs at some point.

From what I found these debuted at CES 2015, I have not found anyone actually selling them.

This is the first I've seen mention QDot. Must have missed it last year. I usually keep up with what's going on at CES.

CES 2017: Samsung Goes Curvy with New Quantum Dot Monitor - Design Milk

Will be available soon apparently. Shall we guess pricing? I'll say: $9,000.

With the pricing, the articles say they'll be less than OLEDs. Ofc when they first start out, they're expensive. My guess would be around $6,500 for starters.

The first practical OLED was made about 30 years ago, and the first QDOT roughly 25 years ago. I think it is still TBD which technology will be cheaper or the standard when the first affordable commercial products are sold.

A plasma display panel (PDP) was never viable for screens smaller than 32". While at first that doesn't seem to be a drawback, the smaller LED screens were still commercially viable, and eventually the cost savings from having a common technology on the assembly line won out and LED replaced plasma completely.

Similarly Betamax was both smaller and higher quality than VHS, yet VHS won the war.

You can't predict the outcome of the OLED vs QDOT technology.
