Maybe it will get better over time.
I tested it with 3D material that I filmed, mainly to check the 3D. I visually check the overall screen and didn't see any burn in but I should have researched checking for burn in first because (and I didn't know this at the time) you can't really see it with normal content. I created a basic video file with solid color backgrounds and wish I had brought that with me on my usb stick but it will show any burn in that is on the screen. I made it with solid orange, red, green, light green, light blue, dark blue, yellow, white and black. So black and white won't show any burn in, actually will hide it but it should show under white if any pixels are out so good for that. Orange shows the burn in the best but it's going to depend on what colors were burned in, I believe from my research yellow will burn in the quickest and hardest. Basically, black (because the pixels or off ((no color)), white, dark blue won't show the burn in, but lighter colors will and red and orange show it the best.
I have to say, watching it last night, I was only able to see the burn in maybe less than 1 percent of the time. The show I was watching showed people with red shirts on and it was a quick scene and I could see the lettering, it's also shows up very faded and doesn't stand out, you really have to be looking for it.
Waiting for a call back, I may just go back with pictures and show them. However, I'm seeing if this screen is still available first anywhere so I don't want to return it just yet unless I can get another one. I have to say, even with the burn in, it is still the best screen I've even seen. And most likely, I will just cause more burn in with my use anyway so it will probably just get more burn in. I'm not going to abide by old plasma rules of watching an emissive display and stop watching certain content. That's just silly.
