FWIW, our 60ST50 was prone to Quick Onset / Medium-to-Long Duration IR until some point past 400 hours usage.
Beyond the 400 hour mark, IR onset became progressively slower, and duration progressively shorter.
Personal preference would be to keep Static Images - and especially Bright Ones - to a small percentage of screen usage for at least the first several hundred hours.
(And/or until you've determined how prone YOUR panel is to IR: there have certainly been posts from people who claim to have gamed from Day One with No Visible IR. However, would rather err on the side of safety, as opposed to Immediately launching into an 8 hour marathon....)
Currently, panel appears no more prone to IR than either of our older Panasonics: that is, could DEMONSTRATE it for someone, but it simply no longer appears to be an issue under normal usage.
Note that we do not game, nor use the panel as a Super Large Computer Monitor - YMMV Accordingly....
