Yeah most will view the screen from right in front of it but even on a TN you'll still run into off angle viewing even head on. I notice it mostly when on web pages, ingame its never an issue unless there was a particularly bright spot somewhere i may notice. Then there is also the vertical gamma shift that is a problem no matter what. VAs and IPS are a lot better when viewing head on since they don't start showing off angle weakness as early as TN.

Image retention isn't a huge issue anymore and it only becomes less of a problem the more R&D that goes into OLED. LG has some cleaning options in the settings that you can run to get rid of any burn in on their newer TVs. The brightness is also better on the 2017 sets, still short of 1000 nits for better HDR but still manages 700 nits in the 2% and 10% window tests. 100% sustain is only around 135 nits but if you're viewing the TV in a dim room as it should be then that brightness is perfectly adequate.
The only thing that makes OLED currently not viable as a computer display is the size. The most i would do is 40" on my desk and we wont see those sizes show up for some time still. I know Dell has their 30" monitor but im pretty sure its a lackluster gaming monitor (lag) and its only 60hz, oh and the price too. GIve me a 24-27" 4k oled 144hz monitor with HDR TODAY and i'll pay $2k which i think is a fair price. Makes me sick knowing they'll be charging near that for the upcoming 4k 144hz monitors with hdr and gsync. Who knows i might bite, but the panel better be flawless and have IPS glow equal to or less than that seen on the retina macbook pros.
