There are people who have experienced burn in with 2017 and older OLED models.Burn in has not been an issue for at least two generations now.
I have a C8 as my gaming screen and it gets used daily. No issues whatsoever, unlike the B6 that it replaced which did have some issues around image retention.
But anyway, there will always be people believe ‘what they’ve heard’ even when faced with incontrovertible truth. It’s why we have anti-vacciners and flat earthers
I think using the word inherent may overstate the message your trying to convey.There is an inherent risk due to the nature of the technology. It's something you need to accept, given the immense PQ gains you get using an OLED.
If you can't, get an LCD.
What utter rubbish. I have seen some stupid posts in my time regarding this subject but this one beats them all.If you fear burn in do not buy an OLED TV. Life is to short to be anxious and have to babysit your TV.
The professional TV Reviewers opinions can't be trusted. They are in on a big conspiracy with LG to minimize the OLED Burn In issue. Professional TV reviewers have to suck up to LG in order to get special recognition at CES. What a bunch of dishonest professional reviewers
Curry's and all of the other stores that sell TVs are in on a big conspiracy. They know that a huge number of their TVs are returned for OLED Burn In and they don't report it to the general public. What a bunch of dishonest store owners.
Youtube is full of people claiming to be experts and misleading people.
Although we don't expect most people who watch varied content to have any issues, OLED TVs, such as the LG OLED C9 do have the possibility of experiencing burn in.
OLED Burn In Risk is Overblown
Their statistical data shows that OLED Burn In is such a rare occurence that they don't even mention it as anything to be concerned with except for some 2015 OLED TVs.
Data on 97,554 TVs owned by Consumer Reports members who purchased a new set between 2010 and 2018 has been collected. Many of these TVs are OLEDs. If Burn In was a common problem I am sure Consumer Reports would mention it.
Geoffrey Morrison and David Katzmaier of CNET
If you vary your TV viewing habits like most people, however, it won't be an issue. Even so, caveat emptor. Or as Caesar once said, "Conscientiam autem ardeat sed non anxius" (be aware of burn-in, but not concerned).
John Archer of Forbes
Occurrences of permanent screen burn in the real consumer world are now and will continue to be rare.
Atomicus of Chichester
One thing that seems abundantly apparent is that while by no means should it be suggested that burn-in doesn't exist, the problem is nowhere near as widespread or as much a certainty as some people fear and/or lead others to believe.
Useful facts from dodgexander:
- The risk of burn in with OLEDs is actually less than it was in the Plasma days. It's no more likely to happen now than then.
- Its not only OLEDs that can suffer from burn in, abuse any type of display (even LCD) and you can get burn in. Just take a look at some of the old LCDs in pubs.
- Youtube is full of people claiming to be experts and misleading people, do not believe everything you watch on Youtube. I don't want to name and shame but there are some really laughable content creators out there who literally will say anything to make a few extra views. Do not believe their rubbish! I am sure if you read this, you know the kind of channels I am talking about.
My OLED is a 2018 model with burn in.There are people who have experienced burn in with 2017 and older OLED models.
There are many people who have used there 2017 and older OLED TVs in the same manner and haven't experienced burn in.
The reports of burn in on 2018 models, which have been around for 2 years, is practically zero.
I know that there have been engineering improvements but I don't believe this is the main factor that has all but eliminated the risk of burn in. The fact that loads of OLED owners used their 2017 and older TVs in the same manner and only a few of them experienced burn in suggests that the problem was the quality of the manufacturing process rather than OLED technology. I believe LG has improved the quality of their manufacturing process and this is why you never hear of 2018 and newer OLED TV models with burn in problems.
