I don't think the shutters are much more massive than DLP's aluminum mirrors, so durability is probably as good as DLP.

RGB at 600Hz, that is pretty good...why would we get stuck pixels? micro-shutter jamming?

Wonder how long this tech lasts before the risks of stuck pixels increase. Also interesting that Qualcomm is going after another display technology after the Mirasol bust.

TI's DLP technology can shift at over 20khz to allow for RGB at 600Hz - it will be interesting to see this technology mature.
