Over a year and a half ago, I heard Fry's in Las Vegas had the LG's 77" OLED on display. I got in the car and drove over 200 miles to take a look.
I walked in the store and right in the middle store was a large display so everyone could see.
And what I saw, beside the $24,999.99 sales price, was a large screen covered with IR and burn-in. The entire 77" was destroyed. It was awful. Even standing 40 feet away, it was extremely visible.
I asked the GM when they got the set. I was told in January (about 6 months before I walked in) and when it arrived, the set was plugged in and a two minute loop played constantly.
Not in a million years did they ever sell that set for $24,999.99.
Best Buys seem to be displaying the new OLEG's a little better.
