i thought manufactures have taken care of that!!!
On this set, and I am sure other manufacturers offer something similar, there is your standard pixel orbiter and a pixel "wash" function to combat burn in.

It also has a function to where if you pause the screen, after a few minutes it dims it by over half. Then after another set amount of time, maybe another 3 minutes, if you havent resumed watching, it puts the screen into a sleep mode. A simple button push (any button) puts you right back at the pause screen.

It would be pretty hard to generate burn in with your typical use IMO. At least with this particular set.

My LG OLED has a fireworks screensaver that appears after a few minutes of a static image (paused video) or no activity if I’m using the remote to navigate the menus and Apps. I do like the fine art that appears for an input with no signal.

My OLED survived two years of my son’s ESPN viewing habits, and no visible impact to the screen from the sports ticker.

This is common if you're using the TV apps, but if you're using an external source, this feature typically doesn't engage as the TV doesn't know that the source is paused.

Yes. Problem has been alleviated. But, for example, those RGB emitters used to make white, still have blue decay. Filters adjust only so much. I stand by my assertion that my quality LCD set will maintain it’s PQ longer than an OLED.

What about if you have your Quality LCD along with a Quality OLED ?
Sony for example, who you know use the best Processors...

Personally, I'd go with the Quality OLED, provided the price is in my range, over the same Quality LCD, but every one has thier own opinion.

I think you indirectly landed on the real issue which is budget. The question is how much money and nits are you willing to sacrifice to get more blacks.

I guess, if you can afford to go OLED, you generally will do it, if not you look into other ....
60% of the people buying a TV, don't know an OLED vs an LCD, they will buy what looks good to them without knowing or researching the TV brands.

The other 40% (and its probably not That High) do know what they are looking at and for.

I think it is strictly personal thing. I had the choice and I chose to go with LED LCD. My viewing room is set up such that viewers may be knitting or doing simple tasks while watching TV so there's almost always some ambient light that the typical OLED couldn't reasonably overcome.

I upgraded my living room TV with a 65" Sony A8H OLED. Been loving it. Loved it so much, I found a black Friday deal just recently on Amazon for a 55" Sony A9G. It's a 2019 TV but ended up getting it for 1,299. I could have gotten a similar newer model OLED, but needed a center stand for the bedroom, and I've become fond of android/Google tv. I've used some of the after market vesa style stands, and they work ok, but decided at that price Id just get the older model OLED.

Setup was just like the 2020 A8H. Such a beautiful display. I don't watch much tv in there but my wife does. She said she couldn't see much difference from the old TV other than it was bigger,, which was a 46 inch Samsung LED that I've replaced almost every board in. All the content she was watching was some old Christmas movies on DirecTV. Once I changed it to 4k content she was blown away at the difference. I tested after a year of use on my A8H and so far no sign of burn in. I was going to run the pixel shift but haven't yet, as I haven't seen any issues. It says you can run it once a year if you have something static staying in the picture but I haven't seen any evidence of that yet. Unless something crazy happens, I'll be continually replacing with OLED or similar technology down the road.
