I know a lot of people who are only peripherally interested in video and they all know about plasma's IR potential which is why they all bought LCDs.
If OLED gets the reputation of being prone to IR/burn-in, it may doom the technology. It only takes a few bad ones to start that ball rolling. I hope it's only LG's current implementation and that they get it right for gen 2.
I am going to hold off on my next TV purchase until this new LG OLED comes out and watch to see how it does. If there reports of IR with it, I'll continue with LCD.
No one said you are the only one, Sure, you keep doing what you are doing, living in fear, while the rest of us enjoy high end panels with the best picture quality. Funny how clouding, light bleeding, dead pixels, terrible viewing angles, flash lighting, etc doesn't scare you.
