So I don't understand your frustration...
LEDs have far better lifespan than CCFLs anyway, and AMOLED is a different technology. CCFLs have a abrupt fail mode similar as regular fluorescent lamps, besides the yellowing thing over time and darkening of its ends which make a annoying uneven backlight, while LEDs often fail by simply dimming out over time unless control circuit or associated components fails.
Because yesterday my monitor died due to CCFL lamps burned out while otherwise was fine and I loved it. Also had two laptops with burned CCFL/inverter. And this happened to lots of people over there.
So I didn't understood how said CCFLs are better than white LEDs.
