For burn in resistance what specs/tech should I be looking for?

Any IPS/VA/TN monitor will be pretty much immune to burn-in. There are rare cases of burn-in on these displays, but we're talking extremely rare and when it happens it's usually one specific model, basically to the point where i'd say it's a non-issue.

 

OLED is the only current display tech that suffers from permanent burn-in.

Is this incompatible with high refresh 4k displays currently or soon to be on the market?

Not a problem. There are plenty of 4K high refresh rate monitors.

No, there are plenty of good 4K 144Hz IPS monitors available for around $650 US.

A few examples are the Gigabyte M28U, Samsung Odyssey G7 LS28 and the MSI MAG281URF.

Over the pandemic I had taken up writing fan fiction and I am about to start down the path of producing something I intend to get published on Amazon at some point. However I have found my current 1440p Asus monitor suffers from increasingly annoying burn in where for example going from my word processor to the LTT forums where I have dark mode on I can quite clearly read what I had been typing for the next hour or two.

 

I had been milling over for sometime a 144-165hz 4k monitor upgrade but I wanted to wait for prices of panels to drop below a $1000 usd or so before pulling the trigger, but now with this new desire for burn in resistance I am not sure if I am asking for something that isn't available.

 

So I guess my questions are:

For burn in resistance what specs/tech should I be looking for?

Is this incompatible with high refresh 4k displays currently or soon to be on the market?

Should I expect to budget more money to get the features I want?

I had an LG IPS panel that developed image retention thought. 
It isn't burn in, but it sounds like exactly in this post. If i had something open for few hours, then the afterimage would be seen for like 10mins until it disappeared.

So while burn-in is pretty much impossible, image retention is much more common, but still rare, and should be under warranty.

I only see your reply if you @ me.

True,For example my 7 years old TN panel doesn't have burn-in at all.

There was one particular LG ultrawide i was hearing about when it comes to burn-in on IPS. That's why i said extremely rare and typically specific to a model.

Never had an ultrawide, so it more seems like an overall manufacturer issue, and that is LG. I have seen other models from LG also develop image retention just after the 2 year warranty is over.

I have to admit that I hadn't seen that the monitor prices had dropped quite that much so this helps greatly.
