or a month before black friday when prices are the same.

unfortunately, I didn't see C9 go on a genuine good deal sale this black friday, or i would've grabbed one. the Black Friday sales prices were identical to what it drops to regularly. = not much of a deal.

this is why I ended up with Alienware's newest ultra-wide, @ $800.

Can you upload a picture of this "burn-in"?
I manually selected pixel refresher from the Menu every night.

Those oval smudge looking things? Can I ask what you were viewing for so long that has those oval shapes in those odd areas? Were those desktop icons?

Also, as I feared, you aren't supposed to run the manual pixel refresher frequently as it wears down the TV much faster:

"WARNING! Don't perform Panel refresh more than once a year as it may affect the panel's useable life."

https://www.sony.com/electronics/sup...icles/00173467

I know a Sony article, but uses the same LG panels.

Did you have screen shift turned on under OLED panel settings?

I'm not doubting those oval smudges could be burn-in (red especially reveals it), I'm just trying to understand what the usage scenario was like so we could all avoid it. Personally on my OLEDs, I have the taskbar set to-auto hide, no desktop items shown with a black background, screen saver set to "Mystify" at 2 minutes, screen shift set to on, and even with OLED light set to 100 I've never had image retention let alone burn-in after using my OLEDs as a computer monitor for years (desktop+gaming).

Same thing with my OLED laptop, zero issues.

Best time is during summer when they dump the last stocks. 55C8's were going for 899€ last summer.

^^ buy winter clothes and tech in summer = savings. I honestly haven't seen a black friday deal in years that wasn't better at some other point in the year. (not that i spend all day combing) but the stuff I actually want rarely goes on super sale. Black Friday is about selling old trash TVs to get people into your stores. If you aren't going out on blackfriday, you aren't really participating in any meaningful fashion. Cyber Monday isn't real. They just change their websites to make you think its real.

check out some price trackers if you don't believe me. check out the ebb & flow of product pricing.

Yea those oval smudges...they are from my desktop icons. And yes only red would reveal them...Any other colors dont reveal the burn ins

Yes, I have the Screen shift turned on. Basically I play games in a window mode, so those desktop icons are always there. I guess I should have hide them if I knew they were gonna give me these burn ins so easily...

Does the C9 have an audio pass-thru HDMI port?

Putting legit thought into getting a CX 48" as a monitor and am quite curious if I can run PC connected to TV connected to AV receiver and finally have surround sound without the stupid duplicated screen/extended display business in windows.

Yes, the C9 does.

ARC is what it is called; eARC (an HDMI 2.1 feature, that is present in some HDMI 2.0 sets) is what you want if you want Atmos. Normal ARC only has the bandwidth for DD (I believe DD is the compressed 5.1 format and DTS is the uncompressed? I always forget). eARC has more bandwidth and can support more formats.

DD and DTS are both compressed. Their Uncompressed counterparts are DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby Digital TrueHD. Everything else is correct though, regular ARC can't pass uncompressed 5.1 including LPCM. For DD and DTS it will default to the compressed form and for 5.1 LPCM it will only pass stereo. eARC is supposed to fix that.
