The New 2018 C-8 Series are much more advanced than any previous model produced by LG for the prevention and minimizing of B.I and Image retention. In example the mini pixel refresher for over 4 hours accumulated viewing. The new ABLS system that still need some work and if you quit turning stuff off in the SM because it bothers you, Stay Out of the Service Menu. . The static logo minimization and pixel shifter.
Then there's the don't be stupid factor. As everyone here and everyone who has ever owned a Plasma or OLED have been told. Don't leave your set on a movie with a continuous loop with Black Bars Top and Bottom or on the sides for 2-weeks. If you want to watch a movie watch a movie but not back to back to back marathon for 2-days and when watching sports be carefull with Banners a static images for the FIRST 300 HOURS.Please ,Please , Please don't ever leave your $3000.00 Display on CNN, Fox, MSMBC, BBC, or any news network for 12 hours a day. No it Don't have to be on that channel for 24 hours a day if it does get a LCD or LED. Don't pause a Game or something on the screen and go shopping, fall a sleep, go out for the night, or just chit chat for a couple hours.
You can watch any Sport, Movie, or play any Video Games just give it a rest, switch to full screen Video after.
Please if you have been doing these things please turn the Display to another channel or movie that fills the screen for 15 -20 minutes after that long session.
If you don't have time to think a little get a LCD or LED, they are really good now days. Although I have seen Burn In on them too, ask any repair tech, you can not believe the stuff people can pull and then say I Didn't Know.
One of the Biggest things you can do is rotate your viewing. NOT the same channel or Video all the time. This is not forever just for the FIRST 300 HOURS.
Hope this Helps you in your decision making.
Nothing's Impossible if you don't have to do it yourself ! Glenee
