Here is some more info about it from the link in your article:

It looks interesting, but I worry about scan lines like CRT has with this. I see them on CRTs, but those were/are 480i resolution CRTs, so hopefully this not be an issue. Funny how the more things change, the more they remain the same with this basically working more like CRTs. I wonder how the black levels are on this.

I *welcome* a return to CRT-like performance for displays! I doubt at 1080p resolution that we will be able to discern scan lines...but the proof is in the pudding, right?
