Evaluation

This product makes you want to shout "Finally!" It has been almost 20 years ever since the development of OLED displays started, and the potential of rollable TV has been acknowledged since then. At last, a rollable model is available in a larger display. It probably would be the concern of many that the image might become distorted or the unrolled screen may show signs of stress. Even when seen from an angle, both sides look straight and solid. Because the display is rolled to store away, the big screen would not obstruct the view of the decor or walls. It is anticipated that this will change the way of large displays in the near future. The option to unroll partway to display only the needed information is another attractive feature that could be only offered by rollable displays.
