Hello, I am curious about OLED's and have a couple questions about these televisions that so far I have not been able to discover an answer for.
1) Do OLED televisions use a textured screen similar to LCD/LED's, or do they use a smooth screen like what was used on plasma sets?
2) As OLEDs are emissive displays, do they require a "break-in" period of one to two hundred hours of use prior to performing a calibration as was the case with plasma sets?
3) Are OLEDs subject to burn-in or image retention if you were to regularly watch a news channel or sports channel that always has a ticker bar along the bottom of the screen?

Anything else people should be aware of with these sets before investing in one???

Very few people, if any, have intentionally tested this for obvious reasons. Luckily for us though, a member of Overclock.net accidentally tested the burn-in of his 1st generation LG 55EA9800 OLED TV when using it as his computer monitor:

I've been using an OLED display for almost a year and have not had any issues with image burn in. There have even been many occasions when I passed out with the screen still on, displaying my desktop. Considering that's with a first gen OLED display, I'd imagine the new ones fair even better.
That's not to say they absolutely can't get burn-in, but it seems to be at a level similar to the final generation of CRT displays where you have to really abuse the set for several days straight.

The only IR I've experienced showed up after watching like 13 episodes of House of Cards in a row. House of Cards has slim black bars in top and bottom, and those showed up in dim grey content afterwards. But, then I left the TV on with a screensaver running for a few hours and it 'washed' the IR away.
