Better colour purity?[edit]

Better colour purity : the colour produced by QDs provides for an improved viewing experience for the end user. Compared to what exactly? An OLED?--Spectatorbot13 (talk) 11:17, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Should this page even exist?[edit]

This is barely even an emerging technology, there are no names behind it, and the only articles written on the subject have little gems like this:

The quantum-dot LEDs require just 3 to 4 volts to run for over 300 hours non-stop

3-4 volts? At what current? And neither of these are a measure of capacity! What the heck...? 93.182.133.11 (talk) 03:59, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

I agree, it's absurdly new (I don't care WHAT was covered in the 90's), but I'm not sure if there's a remedy other than time. This isn't a bad article per se, it's merely a first (or pre-first?) draft. However though, I do admit that on first read I'm more confused by this article than helped by it. For quick example, inside the "Optical Properties" section is this:
"Unlike atoms, ..."
This throws more wrenches than clarity. Again though, it's a first draft. I look forward to see where this goes.Tgm1024 (talk) 04:29, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Cons section, "... 50x greater brightness ..."[edit]

I'm only an amateur but as I understood it, people perceived colors at a ratio of about 0.85:1:0.15 (rgb respectively). I might be remembering wrong but even in the worst case scenario I think blue would be 0.05, so I can't imagine why the article says blue must be 50x brighter. It would more accurately say something in the range of 10-20x; Could someone verify the exact number and update the cons section? 76.10.151.100 (talk) 03:24, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

  • The fact that LCD monitors transmit only 5% of their backlight intensity would seem to corroborate my earlier guesstimate of 0.05 for perceived blue brightness. Maybe there's another technical reason, as I said I'm only an amateur with an interest in display technologies and how colors are perceived by the human eye, however it would make a lot of sense if blue was being transmitted 100% through the display while green was being intentionally limited to 5% to preserve the relative perception of color, and red would be like 10% or something. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.10.151.100 (talk) 03:30, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Use in Sony Triluminos displays[edit]

The article mentions that the "Kindle Fire HDX 7 is the first product using the technology." I'm not sure about that -- in 2013, Sony Triluminos displays began using red and green (but not blue) quantum dots. The article should mention that the Triluminos was used in consumer products like the KDL-65W850A television and the Xperia Z1 smartphone. These products may have debuted before the Kindle Fire HDX 7. 75.163.145.67 (talk) 16:59, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Environmental concerns?[edit]

What about environmental concerns? (Now that we're finally getting rid of NiCd batteries, and LEDs are on their way replacing fluorescent bulbs with their Mercury, Cadmium is making its way back into consumer products?...) -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QD-LED mentions the topic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.105.127.233 (talk) 21:50, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
