All display technology matters. (Off-Topic)

Modern plasmas don’t really suffer that much from burn in. We have one and sometime I dock the switch to it. If you get really close and look at it, there’s a ton of “noise” as pixels move around and turn on and off. You don’t notice it when you are watching normally. They all do stuff like this to avoid burn in, and the picture is still pretty great. Not really any issues with image retention even for the old games with bright static interface elements.

I think in general as tech matures they mitigate burn in problems. I’m sure in the future OLEDs will solve this problem like Plasma and CRT did before it.
