we went round my mates and his oled had burned in the youtube icons onto the screen
No, not at all... all I can say is it’s surprising and give my own personal experience.Oh god... I think this is going to turn into one of those subjects where unless you post a picture of an OLED TV with burn-in, that you've seen yourself, with you in the picture, holding up your passport, with a newspaper with the date on it...then nobody is going to believe you.
Had mine 3 and a half years and no burn in. But some of the early 2016 sets had an issue where they burned in far quicker than they should be able to. They revised the panels over time.No, not at all... all I can say is it’s surprising and give my own personal experience.
Assume after only 6 months, your mate had his replaced?
I have 2 and I don’t even think about it? No sign of any problems 1 is 3 years old....everyday viewing and the other is 2 years old for gaming and 4k films......not a single issue. It only spoils your enjoyment if you make your mind up that it’s a definite issue......which it isn’t unless you have a banner on for 24 hours.....but who would do that?I guess burn in on OLED is a 'thing' and you just have to be mindful of it ALL the time. I was with my Panny plasma and I never got any burn-in on that. But I always had to be mindful of it which, for me, kind of spoils the enjoyment.
I certainly wouldn't want to be owning a TV and disabling HDR to avoid burn-in?
The only trade off for me with my new TV was blooming. But I've installed LED strips around the back of the TV and it pretty much eliminates it and gives greater contrast. I like the glow around the TV anyway and it softens everything. Don't like watching in total darkness.
The shop they bought it from took it back and allowed them to choose a new TV. So they went for LED. This was a couple of years back... actually it was 2017 I think?Did LG refund them?
That stat is completely meaningless in terms of OLED burn in mechanisms...Expected lifetime (degradation to 50% brightness) for OLED is 100,000 hours which is circa 11 years of non-stop use. Given most of us use our TVs for fewer than 24 hours a day I’m really not that concerned.
Had my C8 just under two years, play plenty of console, watch plenty of football with the logos and stuff, on for several hours a day. Not a hint of burn in.2 years on my OLED, no burn in with console and pc use too. I think the tech around OLED has improved from the early ones.
