    Idk, maybe you're right that there is ways to repair it - but I definitely tried a bunch of things people recommended including an app that like played fuzz/noise and IIRC I left it running overnight and it didn't fix the problem.

    I'm almost definitely buying an LG OLED TV this year - I guess I'd need to be further convinced that it's a non-issue before I would shell out that kind of money for an OLED monitor.

    Simple. It doesn't happen to him, therefore, everyone else is making it up.

    this is one of the cornerstones that internet forum discussions are based upon :wanker:

    A bit of a shame. I have an LG 65" E6 OLED TV. I was really looking forward to seeing some reviews of this monitor. Hopefully someone else will come out with an OLED screen.

    Speaking about burn in (not image retention)...

    It is Fud, so I will take it with a grain of salt. But keep an eye out for issues. I've only had mine 4 months, but so far no regrets at all. Best TV I have ever owned and by a country mile. Also 3D is stunning on an OLED. Beats the hell out of LCD any day.

    Burn-in on OLED displays happens, always. It's not image retention. Don't even try. Sheesh. We're not idiots around here. Pretty much every single Galaxy phone prior to the S4 / S5 that I've held had evident burn-in that doesn't just "go away when you play some other content or leave it off". My Galaxy Note 1 had it. My friend's Galaxy Note 2 has it. My other friend's S2 had it. So did his Motorola Razr.

    Kudos on your excellent taste in televisions. I almost pulled the trigger on a 65" B6 for $2250 over Black Friday. 2017 models at CES look like they have brought the E6 quality down to their "entry level" B series, so I'll probably get one of those and retire my Samsung plasma which suffers from extreme image retention.

    ...burn-in is real though.

    Well 3D is dead it appears. Every manufacturer has removed 3D from all their 2017 TV models, this includes OLED, QLED and others. This news from those who were at CES in January.

    And for the other who said Sony is staying away from OLED, not in their new 2017 models they aren't, they are using them now, LG panels. As are Panasonic.

    My wife's' Samsung S7 Edge has a burn in stripe where the weather displays in the middle. We've tried 12 hours of a flashing program to fix it but it's too far gone after only 3 months of light use. I don't use TVs as TVs I use them as my desktop for cinematic gaming and easy multitasking in 4k so I'm not actually in the market or the future market for any OLED products. A good high end QLED FALD with subtlety and clean edges on text is what I would prefer for my pc. It would appear Samsung like us have learned a lesson.

    Wasn't the canceled one a 120Hz monitor? This one that went up is 60Hz.

    I'm not going to say burn-in doesn't ever happen or anything. But I have an old plasma TV which I still use (and that thing has been used 5-6 hours a day for 8 years now) and have used 3 OLED phones over the past 7-8 years. 2 of my old samsung phones are superslow and they have all sorts of problems with battery life and random freezes, but their screens still look pretty much flawless to me with no sign of any burn-in or any artefacts. And the plasma TV has served me so well that I only recently started thinking about upgrading it to a 4k HDR OLED TV, but I might wait for OLED prices to drop a little more.

    Sony is using LG panels at least since 2012, and they haven't used their oled panels because of burn in and/or short life of them.
    And this was coming from Sony techs/engineers that were at training events.
    And that they still haven't switched, means there are still issues, or they have something "better" in the works...

    Is response time really 0.1ms?

    I think it is a wise decision to do that.
    I don't know the backgrounds but rather don't publish a product than publish one that will have pixel errors or whatever it is that they have problems with...

    To bad it's only 30" if it was at least 35" I might buy it.

    yeah, they got great numbers for response and Hz.
    IIRC, sony did say technically 100.000 Hz for refresh (panel) would be possible.
