    It's a real bummer, it really is, because it's probably the best TV I've owned. Great picture, great features, looked great as a physical thing in the room...but it turns out it has a bit of fragility that I just don't have it in me to deal with. As soon as they crack it and create an OLED with no burn in, I'll jump on it immediately.

    Hearing other people's reports of burnt in Netflix logos and news tickers, it seems to me that it doesn't matter how careful you are, if you watch any kind of content with any kind of regularity it's going to end up leaving an impression on those pixels. It's time on screen, no matter how that time is accrued. Or maybe it's a panel lottery thing, maybe some are less resistant than others or just more prone to it from certain sources. Either way, it's not great when you spend so much on an item.

    I hope yours works out great if you decide to go ahead with it.

    No I don’t think so. I had heard of the code in the past and I thought it might still work and it did.

    It is the only thing making me hold off right now.

    Are you steering clear then?

    I think so. I obviously wouldn't use one for PC stuff again, but I'd be too scared of visiting YouTube too often, and a year down the line, having some burn-in again. Seeing how some people are having a much harder time than I did convincing the companies that burn-in is a fault that the user can't necessarily help, I might not get as lucky if it happens again. I can't risk it, despite pulling what little hair I have left out trying to find a replacement LCD among the billion different model numbers and feature sets.

    I'm going to spend less now and hope they figure the burn-in issue out eventually.

    Missed this but, at the risk of necro posting....

    With HDR, that extra luminance you get from maxed OLED Light, will only be employed in the specular highlights and small amounts of time the HDR 'effect' is employed on any part of the screen. So although you have OLED Light maxed, the TV isn't using it to such an extent as it would with SDR content. Essentially, look at it as a setting that adjusts the peak luminance the screen could get to.

    With regards to varying content, it's really reds that you need to be mindful of. Andy channel/ game that uses static red images should have use kept to a minimum. Or the OLED light turned down for.

    That all said (written), anecdotally permanent IR does seem to pose much less of a risk on the later OLED displays.
