They don't burn in. The very first generation did the news ones suffer the same failure rates as normal LEDs.
One of my best friends has a 2015 LG OLED and has never had an issue. My other friend used to work at Best buy in the TV department and he didn't notice many OLEDs coming in for returns that would indicate mass burn in issues.
Really it's a normal failure rate.

Now if you leave the same image on screen for 24/7 yeah sure it'll do it more likely than a LED. But really why is your screen on in the first place at that point?

My experience - OLEDs are amazing to look at. If I had the cash it's a no brainer for the living room. Slightly derailing because they're TV's, I have:
  • 65" Sammy 4K QLED - love it. I know it's not OLED black but they're pretty close. HDR looks great even if it's not full spec or whatever it looks better than non HDR. Slight glow around the end credits lettering if you're watching on a black background but otherwise unless you're side by side with OLED watching the night sky it's a great telly. 4K Netflix or UHD blurays are gorgeous. Turn off all the motion settings for sports.
  • 43" 4K Samsung 6100 (cheap) Still a great telly. No burn in or light bleed noticeable.
  • 42" 2006 model LG Plasma (Analogue, Standard Def) Horrible resolution by todays standard but for the period the Plasma was king. LCDs of that era looked horrible and oversaturated and bright A.F.
  • In my study I use a 34" Acer X34. 95Hz overlocked. For my type of games it's awesome. I don't do FPS at anywhere near the level to get an advantage of a 144hz + panel and I love the higher resolution.
  • 60hz Samsung 1080p business monitor for my overhead. Fine for a second screen. I run it overhead the X34 on a vertical mount. Plain Jane and cheap as chips. I have two more in storage - if I had the GPU grunt I'd go 34" overhead and triple 24s but since moving to the ultrawide I don't' really miss the extra width. It's really just for immersion in racing or flight sims but with 4GB of GPU memory it's a killer for frame rates. I just love the graphic details too much to turn the settings down too far!

    So... TL;DR - if you're looking around the higher end of monitors for gaming:
    OLEDS =amazing colour and detail but super expensive and yet to see a gaming monitor. There's a DELL 4k I think?
    Samsung QLED = gorgeous and (relatively) affordable. High refresh rates in the gaming models so buy this for 16:9 gaming. Quality control = superb in my experience.
    IPS WQHD = sweet spot for ultrawide. Own one. Love it.

Yeah they've gotten waaaaay better. Although the new Pixel 2 XL doesn't seem to have done OLED any favors

I dont know about that. I used to work for Samsung and burn-in has been a big issue. If they perfect the technology its the obvious choice, but I wouldn't buy what I have seen in TV's or mobile devices atm. Merch displays would start holding a burnt image within several weeks of going live. A tv that mostly sees a moving image would be ok, but if you game and tend to be on menu screens for long periods of time (like when you fall asleep) you are begging for trouble. Or a desktop wallpaper and icons on a PC... have to go back to those old screen-saver apps, lol. Fortunately I don't really watch TV, but I would like a PC display with OLED.

I've seen the 27inch first hand and there's no other word for it than frankly, stunning. Never seen colours like it. 144hz, HDR, it's just lush.


Samsung LC27HG70QQUXEN This monitor looks amazing some good reviews on this
