I figured it was something like this, but didn't want to assume... aaaand here we are.
First of all what you can't stand or find interesting has 0 to do with what someone else does with their TV. Don't know if you realize this, but some people are hearing impaired
(It's a shock I know). Some people actually need
subtitles, and some people who can hear perfectly fine actually like
subtitles. Here's another shocker, there is no universal standard for where subtitles show up on the screen. There are some spots where they will usually appear and (another shocker) those are the places on the screen where those burn-in spots are, and I find it hard to believe that anything else BUT
subtitles would cause that. It makes 100% sense that burn-in would be problematic for people who always have subtitles on, and manifest in those specific areas on the screen. I don't think I've ever used subtitles, but I realize that what I do or do not like is not the standard and people doing things a different way aren't necessarily weird
All of that said, I don't know why any hardcore subtitle user would even buy an OLED in the first place unless it was just an oversight.
