That’s why I am excited to hear about the new LGs, as it sounds like these issues have been resolved, or at least mostly. I haven’t heard much negative from them.
Although I am glad to hear the 9500 appears to be doing well for you. And yes, if you aren’t noticing a lot of lag with the 9500, I probably won’t notice any with the new models. As you said, the number is much improved from the 9500. I'm actually looking into getting the E6.
Thanks for your input, it really helped.
Are you thinking of upgrading to one of the new LGs?
I am, yes. I happened to get a particular serious case of banding that is quite prominent even above the 10% area. As a result, I see a lot of jailbar like issues on even brighter content at the slightest hint of a pan. Otherwise, though, I've become too enamored with the overall performance of OLED to look elsewhere. I often find myself marveling at even the most mundane of scenes. I've gone through far too many TVs in the past year (though not nearly as many as some here), and I'm ready to be done with the process, so I'm going to spring some extra cash and go "big", so to speak, with either the G6 or E6. Considering the positive results we've seen thus far, I assume I'll be immensely pleased.

Unfortunately, I'm probably not the best person to ask in that particular department. My sessions usually don't last more than a couple of hours in a single sitting, and I can't recall a game I've played on it thus far that had a singular, static HUD for the entire duration (I've only had the set a couple of weeks, so while I've sampled various games to check for any lag issues I may detect, I haven't played an overarching scope.) I've yet to see any image retention issues whatsoever, though, be it on station bugs or other still images. Anything that might have been there was cleaned up by the comp cycle upon shutdown.
Long time owners of the set have more or less dispelled any concerns over long term burn in/IR. The only time it's been reported, to my knowledge, is on the sets playing loops at Best Buy, for example.
