You are right of course! But I wished to say.. LED's are not eternal too... Dumb example, you've seen those big advertisement screens using multi segment LED matrix? Those high power led tend to make failures very fast just as mere Zener diodes do. Those nasty burned out segments... It is like Russian space rocket launch success rate. You are right about putting at lower power settings extends the life span of any device I suppose. The only thing that personally for me failed with ccfl were only inverters... but that is a easy fix. And I bet I was at fault that it broke, due to mechanical shock btw - alcohol you know And if it is cheap china it will be cheap china. We all know that. OLED yes they fade out and the color balance drives in hell... I make my living as mobile phone technician for certain manufacturers. I've seen the first pioneering technologies and results after many years of using the device... first that were mass produced using early OLED's were Nokia 8800 ARTE and same display unit in 7900 and then N85 and N86, after a year their color black level shifted to something bizarre like, of course only on heavy users! Same is with newer SAMOLED units... color balance is so shifted... The technology is still to RAW and undeveloped. I have a Nokia N9 also(big and fast flashdrive), it has the best contrast ratio in the current market, yes indeed, and those deep blacks also, but but... pentile matrix and low resolution, we have to wait for few years still. Our future are in sLCD and and super IPS tech from Sony, LG and SHARP. Not any of OLED techs. @3870x2 LoL moisture? No, it is the way of semiconductor degradation graph depending on the chemistry of each light emitter.
