I own a 55GZ954 since november and I'm very content with it. In my opinion it has the best (most natural looking) image from all the OLED offerings from Philips, LG and Sony that I was able to view in my region. It's also the least expensive of them all.
However, somehow I got paranoid about the life expentancy of OLED screens.
I rarely, if ever, watch HDR-content and do normal day-to-day viewing, for some two to three hours at a time, 4-5 days a week. If that. Occasional gaming, for no more than a fe hours at a time.
I've turned off the auto-contrast feature and set OLED brightness to 55.
This is pleny bright for any viewing but broad-daylight. I'm completely blow away by the images this thing conjures up. In my opinion it's way better the more expensive Philips 55OLED904, that one of my friends bought after he saw mine.
Since most programmes contain more dark areas than really bright ones, I suspect the OLEDS aren't asked to work very hard with these settings. Will they age anyway? Or will they just age and deteriorate under stress?
Is it justfied to worry about my tv lasting more than, say, five years? Even though my OLED tv was "cheap", I really wouldn't want to have to deal with any issues. I hear/read people complain about uniformity issues, image retention, dirty screen effect, diminishing peak brightness, etc. Despite the multiple tests that were done by HDTVtest and RTINGS and the like, what's your experience, if you have owned an OLED tv in the past?
