If people want to "roll the dice" and take a chance that their set will not have a problem, I respect that decision. I can not guarantee that their set will develop "burn in" under normal, viewing conditions. However, based upon the data that is being presented on this forum, you, nor I, can guarantee that their set will not develop "burn in" under normal viewing conditions. And we all know that, if the set does develop "burn in" under normal viewing conditions, LG will not guarantee against this possibility either.
So, how much confidence does LG have in its OLED TVS?
Look, I don't want to get into a debate with you about what constitutes 'NORMAL' viewing habits, so let's see if we can agree on what constitutes 'VIDEOPHILE' vewing habits:
-primarily random content, ideally dominated by blurays, streaming, anf logo-free TV/cable
-gaming, but limited to 15% or less of overall viewing for any individual game
-any individual channels limited to 15% or less of overall viewing
If we can agree that these guidelines are reasonable for what a AVERAGE VIDEOPHILE watches, and not a GAMER-VIDEOPHILE or a NEWS JUNKIE-VIDEOPHILE, then we can recommend OLED wthout hesitation to those whose viewing habits fall within these guidelines for NORMAL VIDEOPHILES.
If you watch over 15% CNN or CNBC or game over 15% on any individual game, it may be too early to jump on the OLED bandwagon just yet.
But if you can pretty comfortably be sure your viewing will not have over 15% on any specific screen with bright static components (especially CNN, CNBC, individual games), then you can pretty safely purchase a 2017 or 2016 OLED TV
