There is a ton of potential with OLED (probably more so on LCOS at the moment).

The current problem with OLED is lifespan so it is only showing up in short-life devices (cell phones) and not long-life devices (TVs and monitors).

Still, a ton of R&D is going into it as it will be cheap to manufacture and produce some amazing displays.

Liquid Crystal on Silicon.

DiLA is a JVC brand name for it.

It has very high yields without dead pixels (an LCD issue), very good black levels (LCD and DLP suffer with this), almost zero pixel gap (which is really bad with plasma).

It is also being made in very high resolutions with the first true 1920x1080p (note the progressive) display coming out recently from Toshiba using LCoS.

The catch with it is that JVC's and other's attempts to build a single chip solution (using an on chip light prism and such) have all failed and the only real solution is to use three chips for the R, G, B components. This makes it expensive (the Toshiba set is $10K and most really good LCoS front projection systems are that much or 2x more).

Some day they may find ways to make the three chip solution cheaper or, better yet, an easy and cheap to manufacture one chip solutions.
