    ever since plasmas were in their prime, the industry tried to convice us that burn in is not an issue annymore...a few decades later it's still an issue. Technology isn't advancing as fast as everyone think afterall

    *shrugs* depends on usage I guess. There's not a hint of burn in on my 7 year old plasma TV.

    My favourite story about Plasma burn in is someone bought a brand new Plasma TV and installed it in their home. Someone had their keys and went in and changed the TV to show a static image of some very heated pornography of two gentleman enjoying their relationship when the owner went away on holiday. That's a hard burn in to get rid of!

    Nice to know it's still possible on todays tech, just takes longer

    Burn-in all but disappeared for many years. Manufacturers have gotten lazy on refining technology like OLED, and instead are just putting more 'smart' features in.

    Ooo, yeah, I want Spotify on my TV, or Hulu... oh, wait, a resounding no. My TV is a screen. The media PC is the smart bit. Take the 2GHz octocore processor out of the TV and fix the actual screen.

    Really not a huge fan of OLED for this reason primarily. It just is a problem, as much as people try to downplay it, and I'd much rather have a decent LCD screen either way. It's a downside rather than a selling point when I see it in the specs of a phone too.

    I imagine flagships fare better but I've used quite a few OLED phones and every single one had irritating burn in after even a few weeks of use.

    LCD is fine - it's not broken, don't fix it, especially not with objectively flawed alternatives! Its not like we don't have a good alternative or need to wait for one to be invented marketed!

    Well that sucks.

    I've got 2 OLED tellies and I've not seen any burn in on either yet. That being said though, I don't tend to leave them on with static images. They're used for ummm... watching telly.

    Channel ident logos in the top/bottom corners are the most common cause so it can happen while watching telly

    you must work for a competitor of LG. My friend has two plazmas, both Panasonic's, no burn in. I have his very old Pioneer 43" still looks fantastic, and its 15 years old! that does have a tiny lower left super small burn in from 5days per week for 10 years airing cnbc's ticker. i barley notice it, and cant see it when watching movies for letter box reasons. Just saying, this story is over blown, its been circulating for months now by micro led supporters. that said, LG is working on the newer OLED that has 30% less burn, along with micro led R&D. I think you might be expecting too much, people's expectations are unrealistic

    Re: LG OLED TV test shows burn-in after just 4,000 hours

    Breaking out my tin foil hat here, but I wouldn't be surprised if the RTINGS test is sponsored by Samsung. They have nothing new to offer except LCD with another new made-up name, and their sales are starting to show it.

    As for burn-in on OLEDs; yes, it can obviously happen, but so can it on LCDs (just google it). Personally, I would *never* choose LCD over OLED, given the choice. Sadly, I don't have the choice, since no one produces 40" OLED tvs (I have very little space).

    Oled is an amazing technology, once you watch content with those inky blacks, it's disappointing to watch anything on an LCD panel. I'd have jumped on this tech if it weren't for the price and the burn in issues. I like to keep devices for a long period of time, but if you tell me I'm going to spend thousands of pounds and still risk getting burn in issues... No. Just no.

    Re: LG OLED TV test shows burn-in after just 4,000 hours

    I've never had OLED burn on my phone but I've seen it happen with long term sat nav use. I think as long as you're honest about the potential issues and ensure customers aren't buying it for an inappropriate use that's going to suffer from burn then there isn't a problem. It's when companies hide these issues and don't ensure people know about the pros and cons of their products that people start getting uppity. OLED looks fantastic and has amazing contrast, making it great for home cinema but if you were using them in an office to show a news channel all the time, or in an arcade machine you're going to get logos burnt onto the screen.

    I'd not avoid buying it for this reason but I would take appropriate steps to ensure I didn't damage it.

    It is a joke that the technology is there to stop it, yet many don't implement it.

    There are still days when I wish I had kept my Panasonic plasmas......numerous Samsung panels I have owned have had image retention issues, I have seen too many issues with LG IR and BI (some lovely Sky Sports logos or game HUD permanently in the screen)

    Oddly, the cheap Hisense I bought a while ago doesn't ever show IR, go figure =/
