I didn't notice any such thing in this thread beyond people pointing out the differences and reasons OLED have burn-in issues while most regular LCD (including LED LCD) do NOT.
It’s really silly though. Why do random people care what kind of TV some other random guy buys?
I have no idea what you're talking about. I and some other family members were looking at buying an OLED for a primary (them) and me (secondary) room. I started reading this thread for that reason. This thread convinced me OLED is simply not for me at this point in time. I have too many things that are displayed too often (e.g. KODI and Amazon Prime menus on FireTV 4K) and news networks my mother watches hours at a time when she visits).
I simply would be incensed beyond description if I bought a $3K-5K TV set only to find permanent logos or menu items burned into the screen in less than a year as some have reported in this thread. I took a chance with a plasma for a secondary room because I got it for $499 on sale at the time (it's now over 6 years old and has no burn-in what-so-ever despite the above use).
IF I could trust OLED to be no worse than that, I would consider it, but at least some people have gotten displays that have gone bad in far less time showing similar content as it's apparently not how long it's displayed at a time, but the same data appearing over long periods of short term views as well. That means I could expect to see a KODI menu burned-in a year or two from now since it's up there quite a LOT. I have gotten plenty of image retention of menus, but never burn-in.
It’s so hard to get useful information without it being loaded with dramatic FUD. Just like Plasma.
Whatever. Alls we can do is stay true and play nicely.
So one person's ruined display with what they consider "normal" use is your idea of FUD? Whatever
is right. Even if it's just a defect run of certain displays and not present in "all" OLED panels, that's a hell of a chance to take on multi-kilobuck displays, IMO. Your mileage may vary. After all, that IS the title of this particular thread, is it not? This isn't the thread on "How AWESOME is OLED," after all.
OLED really needs its own subforum though. That would take care of many of the thread-crapping issues that we see.
I don't see any "thread crapping" in a thread that is ABOUT burn-in. You must be thinking of some other thread.
