How many (if any) of you have issues with permanent burn in?
I'm seriously considering getting one. I can deal with temporary image retention, but not permanent.
Anyone have any issues?
I went to the store to look at the Samsung Q90, and the LG C9. I went in thinking of the Samsung, and it looked surprisingly good. So did the LG. Then I saw the Sony and was blown away.So was my wife. It will be delivered in a couple day.
I have also been looking at the OLED SOny and LG... Both were playing the same video feed, but I slightly preferred the LG. Was you comparison the same video feed?
In the well lit area, they got the same feed. In the darker area they didn't. That made things a lot more difficult. The LG was very good, and it seemed a tad brighter overall. I liked the colors on the Sony a tad better with some of the nature shots. My wife preferred the Sony as well. In all honesty, I'm not sure I have a lot of faith in judging TVs being fed unfamiliar 4K material designed to make them look their best. Both were stunning.
What Sony did you get?
It looked really good. Of course, none of the TVs I looked at looked bad. :-)

The PQ outweighs the risks of Burn in and vertical banding. Apparently there is a fair amount of variability between panels of TVs, all brands, all models, all technologies.
I have an LG B8 OLED and I do watch some cable news. No burn in at all here. Ands yes, the PQ is great.
I had a Panny plasma for six years. Now I have a Sony OLED. Zero problems but I baby it. NO LOGO'S EVER. I don't watch news, play console games, etc. I try to keep content with bars on the top or sides to 50% of my viewing.
Picture quality is off the scale on this set. There's so many new technologies that are on the way but not here - I figure it will take five years (or more) for them to mature so I went for this.

Good idea, but that would cut out about 75% of my viewing.
Seems the worst culprit are the news channels that have that banner
going at the bottom all the time. I try to avoid them.
I've used an LG OLED for 2+ years with no burn in problem. I believe something that helps is that I stream everything through a ROKU, which automatically goes to a screen saver after a short period of time.
I've had an LG OLED for a few months.
Just don't ever Pause, while out of the room, for example.
Just switch to another channel and let it run.
There's Pixel-Refresh option works while TV is off.
The 4K on Amazon Prime looks great!
So much depth, color.
Directv 4K service is TWICE as expensive as regular HD!
I've narrowed my choice down to LG's C9 or Samsung's QLED Q9. Not as good as OLED, but it won't get burn in. I've had issues concerning that with my Panasonic plasma.
Others are too bright.
Had a Panny for years, no problem.
I heard brighter settings are prone to burn-in.
I use HDR for Prime Video.
It's brighter, but is 4K, and looks amazing.
I used cinema on my Panny plasma as well. I'm using custom on my Sony A9G with the brightness set down to 31 (from 50). I'm using the settings from rtings.com, which are pretty good. It's a little brighter than the plasma, but no overly.
If you have had that problem with your plasma, you will most likely have it with your OLED as well. I am still using my 50" Panasonic plasma, now 13 years old, and I have had no burn in at all. I guess it depends on you habits. That said, I think the picture quality between the OLED and the QLED sets are close enough, I will go with a QLED Q80 when the time comes to replace my plasma. By then, things may change again, though.
It's not terrible on my plasma, but it's only 6-7 years old.
On one hand,manufacturer's warranty doesn't cover burn in. OTOH, while I generally don't approve of them, Best buy's extended warranty does cover Burn in , so I was told. QLED has issues with uniformity ie DSE. In both cases reviewers/ happy owners claim it's just a minority of people with problems. Unhappy owners will say other wise. The vast majority of my watching is still broadcast TV via antennae. I watch discs on weekends and do some streaming-not impressed with Netflix.
I'll think about it.
