He's basically saying there isn't "burn in" in the pixel wear sense, but rather that residual current can lurk in the transistors and give the appearance of a static image. By pulling the plug and...

You mean the few hundred they dumped for reasons no one is still clear on? Perhaps a market test to see if demand existed in some meaningful uptick at $2000? Obviously, it didn't....

Oculus Rift is a 1st-gen holodeck. If you haven't yet experienced a demo, you owe it to yourself to get close to one. Of course, the consumer version isn't terribly far off now.
