Panasonic set to release 42 inch OLED with heatsink this year.

Just saw this information from HDTV Test today. The Panasonic is set to be releasing several OLED TV with LG OLED EX (high-end panel with with heatsink), and one of those are the 42 inch LZ1500 which set to release later this year. 

 

The differences between heatsink and no heatsink OLED is MASSIVE. If we look at LG line up as an example, the 42 inch C2 saw an incremetal improvement over their older OLED when it comes to brightness but the flagship G2 (which does not come in the smaller size) which use this same EX panel with heat sink can get almost as bright as QD-OLED in full screen brightness and even exceed them in smaller highlight. 

 

It could be a very viable alternative to Alienware QD-OLED and to my knowledge, is the only 42 inch that came equip with this type of panel. Both C2 and Sony A90K doesn't come with this spec (as far as I knew in Sony case anyway, or if it does, it doesn't get very bright like other heatsink OLED)

I really look forward for more QD OLED monitors especially 4K in more regular size like 32".

Sadly it will probably be a while, at least a few years from now but heatsink WRGB OLED is something you can have here and now.

It all depends on their implementation. Using a heatsink doesn't necessarily warrant higher brightness. They could also just use it to clear temporary image retention faster and prolong the OLED's lifespan, so increasing long-term burn-in resistance while staying at the same brightness. Reviews will tell.

 

But it's good to see other options coming up in the 42" range, as it's (imo) pretty interesting as a large PC monitor. Sony also has one coming up.

Yeah but Sony is all but confirmed to be based on the cheaper none-heatsink panel (or at least not using it to boost brightness, their 42 inches were on par with LG for the most part)
