This might be heresy, but I am thinking about replacing my 60VT60. It has just over 4000 hours on it, not high usage, but I am seeing more image retention, NOT burn in, especially at opening menus. The OPPO start screen especially shows up for a while on dark scenes. Most of the time the retention is not noticeable, but I suspect it is contributing to some muddiness in dark scenes. I would also like to have lower power consumption, not as much of an issue now that the weather is turning colder, but it put a strain on the AC in the summer.
Has anyone moved to one of the newer LG OLEDs? Anyone regretted making the change? Is the dark non-uniformity as bad as the on line discussions or does it have such deep blacks that this is now more obvious? If dark uniformity is that bad, I might wait another couple thousand hours in the hope that the OLEDs improve.
I have not calibrated the set, except with consumer disks, such as WOW. I suspect spending $300-400 on a professional calibration might be the better way to go, given that otherwise the set is running flawlessly, never had a problem. Any recommendations for calibration in the Greater Boston, MA, USA area?
Be honest, even is it seems like a flame. I have had plasmas for many years, have never seen on LCD that tempted me, too much variation with viewing angle.
