OLED TV burn-in (Off-Topic)

BTW, it won't exactly be free. Labor will be $300. Still worth it.


I myself am somewhat skeptical of OLED right now. The only reason I'd get a new TV is for HDR. But with OLED, brightness is directly correlated with lifespan. And since HDR makes the display brighter… The decrease in longevity is basically linear with brightness.

Maybe things have changed in 4 years. Or maybe I'm a dinosaur.


I wouldn't have chosen OLED if brightness was my main concern. For serious viewing. the lights in the room are dimmed anyway. Shelf life is an issue given the organic nature of OLED. I'm more worried about burn-in, especially now. I'm thinking that by the time I need a new TV, that will be worked out with some non-organic tech like mini-led.

Yeah you know how tech people are. Making a big deal out of things that may or may not actually matter. Who knows.
