I am sorry, but I disagree with this statement in part. Coming from a 10 year old plasma into OLED I have to wonder, what did I do so right? Why does it seem that the general public believes the bold statement above?
My NEC early on had some IR issues, but nothing ever stuck. This was pre-break in slides and I don't ever think I used the screen wipe or negative process to clean the screen. I did have the orbiter on during its life and after 22,000 hours there are no logo or letterbox ghosts, nothing it is clean.
I cant accept that comment that burn in is a sure thing for any technology. It all depends on how you use it. If you know its possibility then there are a few simple steps to avoid it.
Just some thoughts on my 9800 so far.
My OLED probably has about 100 hours on it, I have not looked lately. Its annoying just how many networks don't use the transparent logos like History, H2, Nat Geo, Bio and others. I never thought about it with my NEC because it didn't matter. I would put Pawn Stars on for 6 hours and no IR.
On the OLED, I don't know I can do that for sure and I notice things like these logos again. Its too early on in the panel life to put it in a situation to get IR. Wouldn't this thought be common sense for owners?
What I can say is under my normal viewing I don't see and signs of IR. All of the movies we've watched so far have been 16X9 so I cant speak about the black bar issues others have had.
Banding- false contouring, I have witnessed this this on commercials, maybe 1 in 20 or 30. I saw it 1 time in content. It was during the Lantern fish scene in Finding Nemo which was on ABC Family. So with questionable compression by Comcast on an uncalibrated new display, I can say I am not all that concerned. I have viewed several sunset and cloud/fog scenes that have been smoother then my NEC ever produced.
