    120Hz support? DisplayPort?

    Urban myth. Nearly everyone who actually owns an OLED TV says they have no issues whatsoever with burn-in. I don't see many complaints about tablets either. The only devices that are susceptible to burn-in are mobile phone displays with their tiny pixels that have to be driven to extremely high brightness to be visible outdoors in direct sunlight.

    Hopefully they've increased the freesync range on the ultrawides.

    No mention of gsync? Cool, if more companies take that line perhaps Nvidia will adopt a standards based approach rather than their current closed pay-through-the-nose silliness.

    TV's dont sit there with a static image all day, TV use case is hugely different to PC use.

    Re: LG unveils its CES 2016 monitor product lineup

    LG makes more money making small OLED screens the size of a phone than making a 32 inch model which offers bad profit. Many consumers will shy away from 24 to 32 inch OLED because of price. Whats the point of investing millions of dollars on a 24 inch OLED screen then you end up selling a 1000 only? LED screens are cheap to manufacture and easy to sell.

    Re: LG unveils its CES 2016 monitor product lineup

    Need more g-sync monitors too prices still too high. Im hoping more monitor manufactures come on board with cheaper variants of their flagship monitors

    That is down to Nvidia, only they can fix g-sync pricing.

    And mobile phone use case isn't?

    I'll still put more weight on the experiences of the hordes of people who've got one, and the biggest tech companies in the world who build and design these things than some armchair speculator who's never owned one.

    Re: LG unveils its CES 2016 monitor product lineup

    After a bit of reading, there seems to be more reports of a short term image retention problem reported on OLED TV screens than burn-in (example - using a gaming console and finding a console symbol retained for a short period afterward).
    Amoled screens on phones have shown some burn-in problems with things like the very bright
    on-screen buttons. But that was argued that mobile phone screens have to be bright to see clearly outside, so are more prone to this type of problem.
    There have been cases where some OLED TV screens have shown burn-in (best examples are shop display screens with some sort of static image left on constantly, day after day, and they did not say whether early models or more recent in the article from last year), obviously this is not under normal use.
    But there definitely does seem to be a rather avid debate, from both sides, going on about these problems.
    Personally, I do not know either way, and I set up my screens to automatically turn off after a short period of non use, after reading how diodes will fade over time (red the slowest to fade). But I can see potential if the screen is used abnormally.

    Re: LG unveils its CES 2016 monitor product lineup

    Yeah, all displays have the potential for burn-in if used abnormally. ILEDs fade and wear out over time, OLEDs fade and wear out over time, CCFLs fade and wear out over time, CRT phosphors fade and wear out over time.

    Granted, OLEDs do still age faster than other technologies, but as long as they remain usable for the typical 3-5 year life expectancy of consumer electronics, they'll be just fine. In any case four different companies have announced OLED laptop or desktop displays at CES, so so much for "dont expect to see any oled monitors for a while."

    Interestingly, it seems the majority of PC OLED displays are sourced from Samsung, while LG have a lead in the large TV market, they haven't yet announced any plans for the computer market.
