Spotify catched my eye earlier and was thinking about the €10,- plan with mobile phone (I have a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.. 'nuff said) and offline mode (my phone has a 1GB dataplan, so importing playlists trough wi-fi is nice.) Ripping from Grooveshark won't get the artists any money (Grooveshark is community driven AKA pirates.) And Zune isn't available in Holland and I ain't sure if my phone handle's the DRM (will look into it). Besides Zune has the same price, but has a lower bitrate with that plan. Spotify is number one right now and stays that way if nobody knows anything better.
Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
"And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.
@The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
