I called LG and was told to not leave a static image on for more than one hour. Well, that will be impossible for me since I watch NFL Redzone, other sports channels and news channels that constantly have static images.
I do not want a TV that I have to baby and be worried about but OLED clearly has the superior picture quality today. I am used to my 9G Pioneer Elite Kuro superb picture quality but it just died and I need to replace it. I hate the thought of getting an LED/LCD TV but I do not want to have to baby a TV.
Have there been any reports of permanent burn-in on 2016 LG OLED models?
All Best Buys OLEDs have burn in. The sales guy tried to sell me a Samsung. I went with the 65 EF9500, coiuldn't be happier. No issues with burn in.
