Purchased an LG OLED C8 about three months ago. And yes this issue concerned me and still does. I use my tv for gaming computing as well. I do watch ticker news sources and limit them to a half hour which in my opinion is more than enough. Regular news channels are different. On normal TV I have my OLED at 80, Contrast at 85, Brightness at 50. This is actually the recommended setting for normal uses at LG's website. I leave pixel shift and Logo Luminance to on but have picture dimming turned off. The only settings I have different are for computing which is turned much lower. I have an open concept house so a dark room is not an option in daytime use. This TV is more than bright enough. My last tv was an Samsung DLP HLP 5685 and although I loved it till its last breath and this TV knocks it on its ass. I took the leap of faith hoping that with normal varied use no burn in would occur. I guess my short duration of ownership doesn't allow me to contribute much but I do have some suggestions. Leave pixel shift and Logo Luminance to on, set your screen savers to come on early and be sensible with your watching habits. When these sets are new they are extremely torched out. So much so that nothing looks natural and colors seem washed out and unsatisfactory. Be careful of viewing habits during the first 200 hours of usage. As this new electronics brightness settles down you will be left with a stunning picture. I may be wrong but I don't think you have to sacrifice brightness-OLED-Contrast etc. as long as your not stupid with your settings. If I experience burn in I will report back but until then this picture technology is just plain bliss.
