    OLED or???

    So I'm starting some research into an eventual upgrade from my Panny plasma (VT60 series) to a 4K UHD unit. I had planned to go OLED but I've read a few things about them also being susceptible to burn-in or IR. How bad is it? I mean my panny if I pause something on screen for a bit I can go run the screen wiper and it takes a few minutes at least for things like text to disappear. In other instances we have a faint "FOOD" text from Food Network seemingly permanent in the background (only noticeable on a white background like the wiper).

    We do watch a good bit of it but not for hours at a time or every day, though I think that has been there for a while. I used to put it on for an hour or so a few nights a week while doing things around the house after work and stopped as soon as I noticed that (now we just watch specifically DVR'd stuff from it). I thought the semi-transparent logos were supposed to stop stuff like that since they're not actually solid.

    Anyway, to get back on track, I'm just wondering if OLED really does have IR issues are they as sensitive to it as plasma? Or does it take hours for any real temporary IR to show up? I mean I'd love to be able to do some console gaming for an hour or two at a time without worrying. I haven't touched my XBox since we got the Panny in 2013 because I've been worried about IR. I don't really want to do LED/LCD if I don't have to but I really would like to avoid IR issues this time around and of course the prices are MUCH nicer. Oh, and no a projector is NOT an option right now in this current house unfortunately.

    OLED and its variations are still the best image. As far as image retention, I'll have to let someone else chime in as I am still running my Vizio LED.

    Yeah I know it's still the best image so I wanted to go with it but the IR had me worried after my experiences with my plasma.

    No issues with plasma type IR or anything?

    Just popping this back up. Any more input on this? After reading some pretty positive reviews on LED LCD's like the Sony X900F and Z9F other than the usual viewing angle stuff I'm starting to wonder if I should go that route over looking at OLED? I mean I know OLED is supposed to be the best for cinema, but after not touching gaming consoles since getting my plasma in 2013 due to image retention issues I'm hesitant to go OLED and potentially have the same issue. Maybe I should just go local dimming LED LCD this next time around and if/when I have the environment for a dedicated theater then look into whatever OLED or OLED replacement/etc is around at that point?

    I personally do not own an OLED but I know several who do have the LG version and some have them more than a year or so and so far nobody has any issues with IR.
    Main:
