Conclusion: Rarely is a test quite this interesting — or ambivalent. On the one hand, the miniature Sony impresses with perfect black and extraordinary motion-clarity. On the other hand, the low resolution disappoints and stops the screen displaying that sought-after ‘perfect picture’.
Pros: Extremely high motion-clarity., Excellent colors., Top-notch 24p reproduction., Sensational contrast when viewed in the dark.
Cons: Very (!) small picture., Resolution is too low., Way too expensive.
Excerpt: Sometimes you can see the future in a device. Well, we see it in the diminutive XEL-1, with its first-ever consumer-ready OLED TV screen. Like an old-school jumbotron, each pixel creates its own light, eliminating the need for bulky backlighting.
Pros: No backlight makes for an absurdly thin panel — just 0.12 inch. Cool retro-futurist styling. Equally svelte remote has easy-to-push buttons.
Cons: Some issues de-interlacing HD sources. Lilliputian screen doesn’t exactly deliver a home theater experience, but Sony promises that bigger versions are on the way.

Summary: Är stor bildyta inte något krav och lite väntetid inte något hinder finns snart 11-tums tv:n Sony XEL-1 som alternativ. Den använder sig av oled-teknik, som finns i många mp3-spelare och mobiltelefoner, istället för vanlig lcd-panel.
