It's an important story for the future of television. I don't think it should be neglected.
Noticeable changes to reduce burn in for the few buyers that are prone to getting burn in happened with the 7's and 8's, 2017 and 2018 model years. Look up oled sub-pixel size. Followers of OLED threads will clearly see that the 6's are the main culprit, and complaints have dropped off significantly for the first 2 years of ownership (6 vs 7 vs 8) even as sales have increased. This also coincides with more awareness of how to use the TV well.
Australia - Two TVs made in 2013
had burn in after less than year, Australia has special laws that force warranty claims, "fraud" was not mentioned in the lawsuits. More importantly, these 2 TVs WERE NOT OLEDs
but LED's, and the issues was more like solarization.
And thus the problem with any "quality" thread. We don't have actual data, posters like Panson spread fear through lies and half-truths. Meanwhile, LG had doubled capacity, Sony, Panasonic, et al, are bringing forth OLEDs, so the industry is not in fear of burn-in. But, just because you can drive a Toyota Camry 20 mph over a speed bump doesn't mean you should do that in your Ferrari.
