Oled Burn In (windows)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm thinking of buying an LG O-LED TV now that they have G-Sync, but I'm worried about the windows task bar burning in, does anyone have any experience with this? Is there any software in windows to prevent burn-in?

Right click taskbar >> Taskbar Settings >> Toggle "Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode" to "On"

I get that, but the hide Taskbar on windows 10 is just too buggy to deal with. So I was wondering if there is anything else.

You can force it with regedits or you can turn your PC off when you're done using it. Realistically, unless you're leaving the same image on the screen for days at a time, it's not going to burn in.

Oh, I thought burn-in was a much bigger problem. If it won't set in unless you leave a static screen for days then it's not an issue.

There was a thread where people were giving tips how to minimize the risk of a burn-in.

There are a bunch of things u can do to reduce the risk to negligible levels.

As linked above, that thread has a list of things should/can do.

 

If W10 is to buggy , then simple answer is ..dont use W10 .

 

Also, LG should be releasing their 48" OLED sometime at the end of May beginning of June. Its a more suitable size and comes with all the features u'd want.

4k 120hz, 120hz BFI, VRR, and sub 7ms input latency.

I have been using a LG OLED for a monitor since last November.

If I walk away from the Oled I switch it off. Off is really standby so it comes back on in an instant.

 

As I am typing this on the OLED it will dim and britten. This is one of the many features it has to prevent burn in. Two others are picture shift and pixel refresher.

 

For Windows I set it to turn the screen off in 30 minutes but I always turn it off with the remote.

 

The thing is to keep in mind that it is not a monitor.

My 38" monitor that is a few feet away from the OLED stays on without a screen saver all day. It cost the same as the OLED but is a totally different animal.
