The characteristics section needs cleanup. It mostly discusses the dot matrix displays used in pinballs, and doesn't give very accurate information. The dot-matrix displays used in pinball machines (and the original segment-based displays) are technically plasma displays..with exception for the redesigned ones that use LED's. -Dewdude 00:51, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Add information about use of dot-matrix displays to display Asian writing systems?? (i.e. writing systems with alphabets/syllabaries/characters too complex to render using 7, 14 or 16 segment displays)
Dubious 2x3 dot matrix display
An editor has repeatedly inserted information regarding a 2x3 dot matrix display allegedly used in some "Russian display". I have reverted him because I don't believe a 2x3 dot matrix display is or was ever used in any commercially available device or is supported by any display controller or hardware directly. Since the editor did not provide any reliable sources, I did an extensive search myself. Unfortunately, the only thing I found was a recent post by the same editor to a font database site http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/821509, further supporting my assumption, that this is made up original research, does not exist in reality, and therefore does not belong into the article, which is not about "thinkable extremely reduced matrix fonts" but "dot matrix displays". At this point (after asking for reliable sources many times), I no longer assume that the contributor will come up with a reliable source for this, but if someone knows of a real device actually providing a 2x3 dot matrix display or a manufacturer of such display modules, please don't hold back so that we can add the information to the article again. Thanks. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 13:15, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
