In Reply to: RE: OLED Owners... posted by oldmkvi on January 13, 2020 at 10:37:31
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.
