LG also announced a 32" oled pro pc monitor in 4k too apparently
So what about burn in?
I wouldn't use an OLED as a general purpose desktop monitor, if you wanted to use it just for gaming or for photo/video editing as a second monitor im sure it would be fine. Burnin really isn't an issue in a normal tv use case but with static desktop environments I don't think it would the best haha
Get it from Best Buy and pay for the protection. I use a CX 48 as my PC monitor. It's about 6 inches too big...
Using my (small) sample of friends and family members with OLED's 100% that bought in the last 3y had problems, in one way or the other. The last one was on November and 2 weeks later LG was there exchanging his panel.
Edit-and be careful, at least in Portugal, even extended warranty does not cover burn in.
@3X0 is using the 48" as well. I have been contemplating an upgrade but will probably hold.
How is the VRR on OLED TVs? I’m so used to Gsync, never want to worry about a fixed frame rate again
@Walderstorn Counter anecdote, I know of several people (friends, family, coworkers, etc.) with OLED TVs that have had them for a few years with zero issues. Mine has also been trouble free.
Not to say things can’t go wrong! They definitely can. Every panel tech has limitations and certain reliability weak points, especially newer tech.
Thats what makes it confusing. Looking at AV forums you see people that have them for years with zero problems and some that only had problems, even with some having exchanged TV often. What I see the most is about the news watermark burn in. Do you have that in the states TV news @Hands? Usually in the top left corner.
I've had two OLED tvs (LG 55B6 and Panasonic 65FZ800) and neither of them have had any issues with burn in. I'd reckon burn in is more probable if you crank up the brightness (oled light) or display HDR material with static elements for extended perioids of time.
@Walderstorn Burn in is a known "issue" with OLED, no doubt. Plenty of news channels, sports channels, or video games can cause this if left on long enough. How long can vary with panel brightness.
The vast, vast majority of consumers don't watch TV in such a way to worry about this. But, nonetheless, there are specific use cases that suggest OLED might not be the right choice, i.e. bars and restaurants, or grandmas that watch QVC 24/7.
