    Cool laptop and OLED displays are excellent (as a personal owner) but the risk of screen burn on a computer monitor is much higher than a smartphone or TV. There are an awful lot of static elements on a desktop OS.

    Hide the task bar, switch to dark mode in OS [which turns off the OLED pixels] with no wallpaper and use a screensaver. Lots of bright white areas on screen for very long periods are bad for OLED longevity.

    I would only use an OLED monitor as a secondary monitor for video/games or other occasional work, OLED is not for people who have the same thing on screen for several hours a day.

    2666mhz ram and a 760p belies that price tag.

    If OLED screens keep showing up in laptops you'll have to start using log plots for the contrast ratio

    There's nothing wrong with the 760p series, but that drive is half the size it should be for the money

    Re: Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED

    Until last year I lamented how there was no OLED 15" laptops and even held purchases for several years thinking it was only a matter of time that OLED took over.

    In that time though, I saw my friend's OLED TV develop screen burn in less than 3 years from the HUD of Overwatch (esp. the ultimate bar). He played as much as someone with a full time job and other hobbies can (i.e. not exessively) and took reasonable care against screen burn so I was surprised t happened so quickly.

    If that is representative of other OLED screens (not sure, I never had any issue on my Samsung phones even though i sometime game for long periods) then I don't expect a laptop screen to last the way I use it. So I guess I will stick to IPS until they come up with something that looks as good as OLED (they *are* glorious.. without (or much reduced) development of screen burn.

    Re: Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED

    With regards to screen burn in, I think it might be more of an issues with the LG Tv's, simply due to the brightness levels. Yes computers etc have a lot of static imagery, but then so do smartphones (not seen any burn in yet apart from in phone shops with brightness turned to max all day and night).

    Re: Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED

    About time we see OLED screens in laptops

    Will this open the floodgate for other manufacturers?

    Re: Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED

    Perhaps this tech will indeed be a testbed for other manufacturers; ie Samsung do not make low-latency gaming orientated OLED Monitors/TVs yet using OLED, but I bet it would be top tier earner for them!

    The OLED burn-in is still an issue for many resentful customers, though I gather seamless pixel shift techniques etc are getting better and better to prevent it.

    Let's see... @hexus, leave it on for a year and come back to us )
