This makes intuitive sense, but my intuition is no substitute for real world experience like yours. Still I'd like to know if you can explain why the slides would improve IR resistance more than, say, aging the screen normally with regular content does.
I have no technical explanation for you. I did the same thing with 2 different panels (1st one had to be replaced at about 1000 hours because it went bad) with the same results. I see people complaining about lasting IR on the 2011 models, and I can't even comprehend how it would be happening to people considering what I do with my TV (tons of HTPC usage, plus multi-hour gaming marathons). I don't have mine on low panel brightness either, I'm running mid-panel at 84 contrast. I mean there was a 2 week period where I put in about 80 hours worth of SWTOR on this thing and saw nothing that was visible on anything other than solid black, that went away within a minute or 2 of watching TV, and was not visible on TV content, and half of the SWTOR screen is a HUD.
I don't know, maybe I'm just really lucky?
