I'm talking about the break-in slides obviously.
Yes I knew you were. When using the slides there are two ways to use them. One is Fast where they change real quickly for stuck pixels. When using the slides as screen conditioners you want them set to change color slower. This is not all there is too it( i know about Burn-in and Image retention), but one of the advantages to using slides in the plasma and some LCD/LED a few years back was to age the screen evenly. When you used the slides in the beginning of a new panel you were able to age all the panel the same from edge to edge and corner to corner. If you took a new panel and just started watching it, there were instances were after a few months the center of the screen would have a different brightness than the edges and corners. It was kinda like a Large circle in the center of the screen( where all the action was) that was different shades, brightness, and even colors were different than the corners and edges.
This came from 90% of the aging process happening then in the First 300 Hours. So what we did was age the screen evenly(with slides) for the first 300 hours. That way our displays looked even well into their years.
I know not all people prescribe to this theory, but I do and still have used slides with random content on every Display I have owned for the first couple hundred hours or so depending on the way the display is responding to the aging process.
So as you can see it is not all about Burn-In and Image retention. There are more of reasons I use slides randomly during the first hours but this is the small of it.
I Hope this gives everyone something more to consider and increase you Knowledge about Displays.
I am using them on my FIRST OLED ( This means I am not expert about them ) no one has given me any reason not too.
These are just my opinion and are not to start a flame war.
I am not a PRO.
