Tech Talk: OLED Displays

Updated: Apr 10, 2020

Let's face it, everyone uses tech, but not everyone understands it. So, when the sales person at the store starts rattling off the "specs" it can just sound like gibberish. That's why GIGABYTE Notebooks is dedicated to translating tech talk to make it easy for you to understand, so you can choose exactly the right model for your needs.

Every user has different tech needs, some people need a lot of power to crunch data sets, other people just check emails and read the news, some people game competitively and other people play solitaire. Depending on your personal and professional needs there's a huge range of options. Let's talk displays for a minute.

Recently PC Magazine did an Instagram post about OLED screens being super popular in 2019 and showed an AERO15

OLED as an example.

Should you get an AERO 15 OLED just because it's popular?

Or are there even better reasons to get a laptop with an OLED display panel? Let's go through it.

What's an OLED Display Panel?

OLED displays are organic LED panels which offer crystal clear (almost better than real life) visual displays. OLED displays give you true blacks, extreme detail resolution, and offer the brightest display. The difference between viewing images on a traditional monitor (even an HDR) and an OLED is like watching 35 mm film compared to 4K UHD film.

If you use your smart phone for photography or sketching you probably have an OLED display on the smart phone and notice how much sharper and rich the images are on your phone compared to the old TVs or computer monitors.

Who needs an OLED display?

If you only check emails and read the news, you don't need an OLED. However if you are a photographer, film maker, digital artist, graphic designer, interior designer, architect or in another profession that relies heavily on graphics software you will you definitely benefit from having an OLED display.

The depth of field is richer on an OLED panel, the colors are more vivid and the visual experience is unmatched. For showing clients models, concepts and pitch decks, using an OLED panel will show case your work like no other screen.

Art Ambassador Anthony Jones, enjoys using the AERO 15 OLED to display his concept art especially as he does a lot of grayscale work. The blacks are true offering the best possible view as one works in scales and tones.

What about Burn In?

There have been reports of images being "burned" into the screens of some OLED displays (like TVs). This unfortunately is caused by leaving an image static for too long on the screen. So, let's say you pause your Netflix movie, don't turn off the device and go to work. After 10 hours there may be a ghost image burned on to the screen.

It takes extreme use to make burn in an issue, so as long as you let your monitor rest when not in use, you'll get the best out of the experience. Though just incase you find yourself with burn in, know that it's covered under the normal warranty terms.

GIGABYTE Notebooks has addressed this for users in several ways. First, you always have control over your settings through the GIGABYTE Control Center. This is a user panel that makes things super easy to control how you use everything from battery power to graphics and CPU to how bright your OLED display is, plus you don't have to be a computer nerd to be able to use it. All you do is look for this ICON (see graphic) and click to open the panel
