    I found this to be the most interesting paragraph:-

    ‘It's been seven long years since LG first commercialised OLED TVs, and the blue pixel continues to die, causing burn-in, even on the models launched in 2017 and 2018. This indicates two things: firstly, LG cannot solve the blue pixel problem; and secondly, though it may have short-term solutions, any gains in these areas are offset by the fact that TV resolution and feature such as HDR are taxing the TVs for more power, causing the blue pixel to die anyway.’


    Is it true?

    Have you seen the burn-in poll? I would say it's true to a certain extent, there are enough cases floating about now of moderate users having issues. LG have changed the sub-pixel structure each year (except the most recent iirc) in an attempt to resolve the issues - but yet still deny there are issues.

    I have seen the poll, yes. There's no denying that the risk is real, but is it inevitable on all sets as the paragraph I quoted seems to suggest? As others have commented, there is a strong bias in the linked article towards Samsung, which makes me question the accuracy of it, hence me asking my original question. There's just so much conflicting information about burn in out there that I just want to know the truth about it.

    I had every intention of getting a OLED to replace my pioneer kuro, but burn in is to Risky for me and I am not impressed having to go with LCD. But my wife and Daughter and myself game.
