    The real question is how well the panel will cope with relatively static images displayed on PC screens...will burn-in be a problem?

    In TVs Samsung like us to believe their Qled (quantum dot) technology is better.

    That's Samsung marketing for you. LED is a transmissive technology, which will never better an emissive technology live OLED, especially when it comes to contrast ratios.

    Mass production in Feb.

    I expect burn-in complaints by March.

    I would have hoped, given how obvious an issue this is, that a press release would have said that they have fixed it and how they have done so.

    Re: Samsung Display shows off 15.6-inch OLED UHD laptop panel

    I hardly ever use the maximum display brightness on a laptop, even with an LCD, as I'm rarely in direct sunlight and I prefer longer battery life. It may be that burn-in is a negligible issue for that sort of use case. I'll certainly be looking out for reviews that test various brightness levels as 600 nits just doesn't sound necessary for me, particularly with how deep the blacks are.

    If it can manage 5000 hours at sensible brightness levels then that'll probably outlast the useful life of the laptop.

    But the industry as a whole is still refusing to acknowledge an issue with burn-in/wear-out on OLED displays (probably due to the difficulties it's likely to cause with products already out in the wild) - which means it's unlikely they're going to put out any publiciry proudly proclaiming that it's fixed...

    Mass production in Feb probably means no product on the shelves until Q3 - so don't expect the complaints til about August. :|

    CRT versus modern OLED which is likely to suffer burn-in?

    Indeed but, it doesn't stop Samsung claiming Qled is better...

    Sony and Mitsubishi had the burn-in problem licked with the FD Trinitron and Diamontron CRT tubes.

    I can't even begin to imagine a CRT laptop. No, 'portable' commadores etc. don't count.

    Re: Samsung Display shows off 15.6-inch OLED UHD laptop panel

    Samsung already works to mitigate burn in on the S8 I have which has an OLED screen. The lock screen graphics for the always on display move up and down by a pixel at a time. Hardly noticable and I've never caught it in motion but the effect is defintiely there and it's clear what it's for. I had a friend who was using an S7 as a sat nav for long distance driving and had quite significant screen burn to the point where I gave him an LCD screen phone to use for sat nav work. Perhaps there is a simple algorithm that could be used when the same data is displayed on the same pixels for a certain duration that the entire image is moved a pixel one way or the other. Doubtful people would notice and it might not solve all issues but it might help.

    Not just burn in from static images. Oled can be damaged by sun light. So if you're a person who uses their laptop out and about; it will leave the panel quite vulnerable.
