I just crossed 16,000 hours on my 65EF9500 - I’m happy to report that there’s no appreciable loss of brightness and I have zero burn-in. I don’t frequent news channels, so static logos haven’t been a problem. My primary source of content is my Apple TV 4K and UHD Blu-ray player. I also own a 65C8, and while that set definitely is brighter, my EF9500 still puts out a stunning image that compares favorably to the C8. That’s not to say the EF9500 is the equal to the C8 in image quality, but it’s still very close.

Thanks for the post and congrats - I believe 16,000 hours is the record so far here on AVS. Can you tell us what setting you use for OLED Light and/or what level of cd/m2 you have full-field white calibrated to?

I went through 4 65EF9500s but they all suffered from excessive vignertibg, so I traded the last one in for a 65C6P after they had come out. I'm only at 2200 hours after 2-1/2 years so at my viewing rate, I've got over 15 more years of viewing before I hit 16,000 total hours!

My viewing is also primarily Blurays and streamng on Amazon and Netflix.

I’ll get a light measurement tonight - as for my OLED light setting, it’s been set at 50 since I bought the TV.

I must have gotten lucky with my 9500. It was produced near the end of the run and I managed to get one with none of the panel issues that plagued the model.

50 is pretty bright - probably about 150cd/m2. If you can make a point of measuring peak white every 1000 or 2000 hours to report here on the thread, you'll be a hero here on the forum.

The rtings.com test of the 2016 WOLED is only up to 11,000 hours (and may possibly showing first signs of reduced peak brightness - need to await the next read point to be sure): https://www.rtings.com/tv/learn/perm...rn-in-lcd-oled

But they are running that test at 175 nits, so 10-20% brighter than you've been running yours...

Which measurement is preferred - Lux or FC? I can convert to NITS, if necessary...

The thread did have a bit of a rough launch do to my inexperience.

You mean your post from early february saying you would 'post soon'?

Quote:

So is this the post you promised 'soon' and does it mean your WOLED is still fine after 11,000 hours?

No visible signs of burn-in on fields?

No apparent loss of brigtness on either SDR or HDR content?

The Rtings.com 2016 burn-in test is up close to 12,000 cumulative hours with little/no apparent loss of brightness (next weeks update at 12,300 hours will be interesting to see whether brightness has actually started to consistently drop every +300 cumulative hours or not).

I've posted in this thread since that initial post lol.

My OLED is definitely not fine. Think I made a post about that in this thread also. Has burn-in from the HUD of Destiny 2 that is visible whenever something that is red, yellow, orange, green, or purple is displayed in the areas where the BI image is. Shows up in skin tones, but it's thankfully at the bottom right of the screen, for the most part, so it doesn't come into play all the time. When watching movies with letterbox, it's almost all contained in the black area.

I'm still considering an OLED again for my next purchase, but it's definitely not the slam dunk that it was before. I know improvements have been made in this area, but still not sure that OLEDs are best suited for gaming. The PQ is so good, though, which makes the decision suck all the more. Best Buy now having a BI warranty, helps also.

Will be interesting to see what 2020 brings. If we get top emission. If Sony has something up their sleeve. If the Hisense dual LCDs can really deliver.

It's a shame, because my set still delivers a stunning picture, and then something comes up that shows the BI and I wince...

In fairness that generation is the last of the "bad" ones and LG themselves I believe have stated that all static hours on the 6th gen panels are cumulative. So even if you played Destiny for 1 hour at a time for 1,000 hours it is the equivalent of 1,000 hours with the HUD paused.

7th gen, 8th gen and 9th gen should all be MUCH better. Rtings have hit 5,000 hours on the 7th gen B7s and AFAIK they have not burned anything other than the ones with CNN on max brightness.

There was also the trade show 2017 OLED that they had on display that showed burn in after only being on for 60hrs...

I don't doubt that it's gotten better and I know that they have a dimming feature for static logos, but I don't know that I'd ever say that the risk is gone. If it's emissive, it's always going to be a possibility. I accept that and may still get an OLED for my next set, but I'm definitely a lot more open to the idea of getting an LCD than before.

It's odd that happened considering RTINGS has way more than 60 hours with static content on 7th generation sets now (they are up to 5,000) and aren't seeing those results.

In any event I agree with you, it's the risk with this technology and I'm very accustomed to it having owned multiple plasma sets over the past 10 years.

QLED has closed the gap significantly but still not as good as it needs to be to unseat OLED for those who are real particular about viewing quality.

OK, so no overall loss of brightness but burn-in from Destiny 2 HUD (sounds as though both Red and Green subpixels are burned-in; only Blue doesn't show burn-in - is the HUD yellow?).

Yeah, gameplay that caused noticable burn-in on 2016 WOLEDs will continue to show burn-in on 2019 WOLED (probably taking longer, but probably less than 2-times longer...).

The panel roadmap LGD showed recently indicated no change in 'Power Efficiency' for the 'Upcoming' panel, so almost certainly no top emission for 2020 (but a modest improvement in color gamut).

The next panel they deliver based on TADF Blue in the 'Future' will deliver a Power Efficiency that is 130% of today's power efficiency, and hence a time-to-equivalent-burn-in that is 130% of the 2019 WOLEDs. Coupled with the other improvements you have already mentioned that they have made in 2017, 2018, and 2019, that means these 'Future' WOLEDs have a good chance of dekivering up to 200% of 2016 WOLED time-to-burn-in levels...

LG C6P owner here. Purchased the TV around October of 2016. Just crossed the 11,000 hour mark. I ran a burn in and banding test on YouTube a few days ago and see no evidence of burn in.

Is my hour count high for a C6? I would assume so. Unfortunately I work opposite schedules from my girlfriend so I dont think its abnormal for the TV to be on 12 hours in a day most days.

No joke: that is EXACTLY what my wife and I do! It's MSNBC or pretty much any cable station on a ~ 42" LG LED (don't know the model, it was free as promo for buying a EF9500 LG OLED with flawless 3D.) we didn't know what to do with the free one until we realized: it is 3D insurance! We now only use the crown jewels for 4k and 3D and shiny disks or anything where we need the best image (pretty much daily for about 2-4 hours, but no news watching allowed on the OLED while 3D depends on it staying alive and well).

We also learned, for standard cable content that doesn't matter how it looks, if you sit within 4 feet of a cheap 42" screen, it is larger than the 65" OLED across the room....

Not sure how many hours we have on the OLED but will check when I get get home, and if approaching 10k will report. We love our OLED and are babying it until 3D happens again.

I like and will follow this thread, but agree it got a slow start. May I suggest, you could edit your first post on page 1, offering a link to skip ahead to post 52 on page 2, I think it was, when the first post reporting 10,000 hours showed up. It's been interesting since that point on.

My 65EF9500 has 11,312 hours and still looks great.

OLED light at either 30 or 44 depending on content. Color at 54 or 55. The lower numbers used for most 4K content.

Subjectively, the only issues I've had are common for this model, and are not noticeably worse than when new: banding on some pale grey or low saturation images, but usually not noticeable or if noticeable, brief. Poorly compressed greys and blacks can look blocky or muddy - usually occurs when viewing Spectrum cable programs, that's my biggest gripe. But none of this is worse than when I very closely examined it when new (I returned 2 sets with issues until I got this very good panel).

I haven't noticed any burn in but I'll try the YouTube screens. And I watch mostly:
- shiny disks (4k, 2K, 3D)
- steaming Netflix and Amazon Prime (mostly 4k)
- some but not a lot of YouTube, Cable
- some PS3 but not regularly
- worst abuse is using it for occasional web page browsing.
- in first couple years used it for everything, that's how the hours added up, but lately limited to movies and other content where best image is essential.

Checked out the color and grey screens on YouTube. No hint of burn in. Some familiar but mild banding but you have to be looking for it to notice. Nothing unexpected or new. Best news: no perceptible sign of degradation at over 11,000 hours.

Yeah. I found the article:

https://www.zdnet.com/article/lg-emb...-at-tradeshow/

I am coming from plasma also. This is a different beast though, as I gamed just as much on my plasmas, and never had any burn-in. Whatever IR I would get, was easily wiped out by the scrolling white. Not sure if it's how much brighter OLED is, or the phosphors on plasma has a much longer lifespan than the organic elements in OLED at this point, but IMO, they aren't comparable in terms of risk. Not as compared to last gen plasma and this iteration of OLED anyway. The tech will continue to improve and will eventually get to the point where it is just as much a non issue, I'd wager.

QLED isn't really an option. The Q90R is a good set, but still has a few too many drawbacks for me. I'd be interested in XLED and to see if the Z9G or Z9H is an upgrade from from the Z9D. Top emission OLED, as well, obviously.

OK, so no overall loss of brightness but burn-in from Destiny 2 HUD (sounds as though both Red and Green subpixels are burned-in; only Blue doesn't show burn-in - is the HUD yellow?).



Yeah, gameplay that caused noticable burn-in on 2016 WOLEDs will continue to show burn-in on 2019 WOLED (probably taking longer, but probably less than 2-times longer...).

The panel roadmap LGD showed recently indicated no change in 'Power Efficiency' for the 'Upcoming' panel, so almost certainly no top emission for 2020 (but a modest improvement in color gamut).

The next panel they deliver based on TADF Blue in the 'Future' will deliver a Power Efficiency that is 130% of today's power efficiency, and hence a time-to-equivalent-burn-in that is 130% of the 2019 WOLEDs. Coupled with the other improvements you have already mentioned that they have made in 2017, 2018, and 2019, that means these 'Future' WOLEDs have a good chance of dekivering up to 200% of 2016 WOLED time-to-burn-in levels...
Yeah I posted a couple times after that initial post, but not with any other updates about my OLED. Just saying that I did post lol.

I haven't taken my meter to my OLED since I calibrated it way back, but perceptually, it isn't any dimmer that I can tell. The fact that I have burn in, indicates a loss in brightness in at least some area of the screen though lol. So it may in fact be dimmer across the board. Isn't noticeable, if it is, but I could just have adjusted to it.

And yes, the hud of Destiny is yellow, in terms of the outline, and then there are elements inside that that are either Orange, Purple, or Blue, depending on what subclass (element, ie solar, void, or arc, respectively) you choose.

No top emission in 2020 would suck. Hate to have to wait until 2021 to get a bigger set, but it may come to that. We'll see. XLED looks interesting, but I think that they said it will only be available in 65" to start, so that doesn't help me either...

It's a TV no man's land right now, to me.

I am coming from plasma also. This is a different beast though, as I gamed just as much on my plasmas, and never had any burn-in. Whatever IR I would get, was easily wiped out by the scrolling white. Not sure if it's how much brighter OLED is, or the phosphors on plasma has a much longer lifespan than the organic elements in OLED at this point, but IMO, they aren't comparable in terms of risk. Not as compared to last gen plasma and this iteration of OLED anyway. The tech will continue to improve and will eventually get to the point where it is just as much a non issue, I'd wager.

QLED isn't really an option. The Q90R is a good set, but still has a few too many drawbacks for me. I'd be interested in XLED and to see if the Z9G or Z9H is an upgrade from from the Z9D. Top emission OLED, as well, obviously.
You need to compare apples-to-apples.

What was the average brightness output in cd/m2 when you gamed on your plasma?

What is the average brightness output in cd/m2 when you game on your 2016 WOLED? (or provide OLED Light setting and we can approximate).

If you had reduced the brightness of your WOLED to match peak output levels of your plasma (meaning 100-120 cd/m2 or an OLED Light setting of ~25), I suspect your WOLED would have withstood permanent burn-in at least as well as your plasma (from the same yellow Destiny HUD displayed for the same cumulative number of hours)...

Not sure what the light output was on my Panasonic plasma. A lot less lol. Probably in the neighborhood of 40 to 50 ftl. OLED light was set to 100.

Like I said, the difference in brightness may have been a contributing factor, but I don't think that's the whole story. I think that the lifespan of my plasma is a lot longer than that of the earlier OLEDs. The OLED is also more vulnerable to specific colors which I don't remember having to worry about on plasma.

It's all moot anyway. Bottom line is if it's emissive then burn in will always be possible Just have to weigh value of the better pq against your viewing habits to see whether it's worth the risk. Still under evaluation for me. HDTV Test review of the Z9G has my attention, for sure.

This is absolutely correct.

This is not.

I doubt your plasma could put out even 40 ftl (137 cd/m2). 35 ftl (120 cd/m2) was more characteristic for plasma peak levels for all but the Samsung F8500.

In any case, your WOLED at OLED light of 100 puts out peak lumens of ~380cd/m2, over than three times the peak brightness of your plasma. That means your WOLED is aging more than three times more quickly than it would have if you'd used an OLED light setting of 25-30 to match plasma-like peak output levels.

Plasma had the time to optimize the aging rate of the different-colored subpixels while WOLED is still figuring it out, but the major factor is output levels and if you had limited your WOLED to putting out plasma-like brightness levels, it's almost certain that your WOLED would have resisted burn-in for longer than your plasma.

Therein lies the rub. Specific colors age faster on WOLED and are more susceptible to burn-in for those specific cases. Again, I acknowledge that my OLED is much brighter than my plasma, whether it's 40ftL or 35ftL, same difference. I just don't know that I would say that even if I matched brightness on both, that the WOLED would be just as resistant. For a particular color, it would still age faster than the Plasma, even at the same brightness level.

In any case, OLED is still awesome. Just may not be the safest choice for someone that games as much as I do. But if Best Buy will really cover BI, then that makes it much easier to stick with it. May stick with it anyway, just because I've always preferred emissive. Never had to deal with BI before, though, so it just gives me pause.

Aging rate is a function of:

-color (blue is the OLED color that intrinsically ages fastest)
-current density (by increasing subpixel size, aging rate can be decreased)
-content viewed (blie has ended up being WOLEDs most aging-resistant color because it is used so rarely in content)

LGD started out being much more concerned about aging of blue than they were about aging of red, so they made the blue subpixel ~2X larger than the other colored sub-pixels from day 1. In 2016, red was the smallest sub-pixel (along with green).

Then they discovered that in the real world, the red subpixel is used far, far more than the blue subpixel and aged fastest as a result (despite having an intrinsic material lifetime that is 2-4 times that of blue).

Starting with 2017 WOLEDs, LG has been increasing the size of the red subpixel to decrease current density and aging rate and to increase red lifetime.

The red subpixel has gone from 69% of the size of bue subpixel on 2016 WOLED to 158% of the blue subpixel on 2019 WOLEDs (and red subpixel size has more than doubled (111% increase). In 2019, red is the largest colored subpixel.

LG can make red a slowly as they want by continueiing to increase its size (at the expense of reducing other subpixels and hence increasing their aging rate). So it is just incorrect to state that any specific color on WOLED will age faster than on plasma at the same brightness level.

LGD did not understand the market requirements of average real-world content in 2015 when they designed their WOLEDs panels for 2016 production. As a result, your B6 red ages (and burns-in) much faster than any other colors (and possibly even faster than your plasma at equivalent brightness levels).

If you had a 2019 WOLED and reduced brightness levels to match your plasma, you'd be talking about a red current density which is less than 12.5% the rec current density you've had on your B6 which means a lifetime which is greater than 10 times as long.

Would a 2019 WOLED delivering 10 times the red lifetime you've experienced be aging faster than your plasma? Almost certainly not. But even in the unlikely case that it was, LG could further increase red lifetime by another increase in red subpixel size.

And all of this is in addition to increasing efficiency of the WOLED stack as LGD has announced that they are planning for 'Future' WOLED panels:
