OLED Burn-In

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I was telling a friend I would love to be able to get this as my next computer monitor ( http://www.overclock.net/t/1346839/engadget-verge-lg-unveil-30-inch-4k2k-monitor-update )

And someone in the thread mentioned soon enough they may have them in OLED varieties, but my friend says OLED is bad bad bad for computer monitors. I said "why? they're the next big thing in tiny smartphone screens and in big screen TV's alike so why not for a computer monitor?"

He said the burn-in is horrible. Is this really true? I'm sure it's something they would be able to fix

Depending on how you use your computer it may or may not be an issue. If you are aware of the issue beforehand and don't let the computer sit with the same picture for many hours straight, it should be no problem. I think I have heard you can have the same picture on for like 3-5hours without any problems, but don't take my word completely on that.
OLED is so nice in everything else and picture quality is great, so to sacrifice the ability to have the same picture on for many hours straight for the great picture and color quality OLED has, I say its worth it! smile.gif

Here is a thread about OLED on the PS Vita with a little info at least: http://psvitaforum.com/threads/oled-burn-in-and-you.8727/
