The information out there is very confusing as some owners appear to have noticed nothing in this regard, others complain all the time. RTINGS are running a 24/7 test over a year to get to the bottom of this ( albeit under rather extreme conditions); the B6 OLED panel does appear to have serious burn-in compared to a VA and IPS top-of-the-line panels at 30+ weeks.Would be great to hear of any first-hand experiences from owners. To top it all, no OLED manufacturer includes burn-in in their guarantee! [Video]


RTINGS videos are largely bogus information.
I have the C7 for reference.

Yes OLED (and Plasma) will have image retention/burn in if you abuse it for many days with a static image that never changes.
Its inherent in both technology's, a flaw if you must say it as such. RTINGS are intentionally keeping a bright static image on the screen all the time to bring out this flaw.

Leaving the TV on for a loooong period of time (talking multiple days) with a static part on the image, say a news channel with a bright logo, will cause the TV to have image retention or burn in depending on how bright the logo etc is.
But in reality, who on earth is going to do that?

The B7/C7 have inbuilt screensavers that kick in after about 20min of no input from the user (while nothing is playing on the screen, say paused on a movie for example).
They also have a auto power down that kicks in after 4h of no input from the user REGARDLESS what is on the screen, you get a little pop-up that tells you to press OK to keep the TV on (RTINGS have something to keep the TV on dunno what it is)

There is no fear of falling asleep with the TV on etc as it will power its self down after the aforementioned 4H, WAY before any kind of retention/burn in happens.

The TV also has a pixel orbiter that movies the screen every so often (you can't notice it) that helps reduce the chance of any issues happening.
It also has a pixel refresher when you turn the TV off, it will "refresh" itself after its been off for 4hours I believe which again helps eliminate/reduce chances of things happening.

LG are well aware of the burn in issues and have implemented plenty of measures to prevent it. Even though they dont cover it under warranty.

Playing games with a static hud all day (8hours+) no issues, no burn in, no retention.

Its honestly a non-issue.
If you are keeping the TV on for 24h+ for some reason, you have bigger issues.

It cost and was worth £3000 11 months ago!



It may have cost £3000, but whether it was worth £3000 is purely subjective.

Good price, great TV BTW. Ive had it since Jan this year and its outstanding in every way!
Sadly tho "Manufacturer warranty: 1 Year" not a 5-6 year warranty

I also have this TV sins Dec 2017 and it is fantastic TV. but for a extra £150 (£1499) you can get this TV with 5-6 Years warranty.

Brightness is great on it, its the dark level that really makes the difference. Netflix context with Dolby 4k is outstanding.
Ive been playing God of War in HDR too and its amazing.
Do agree with the other people commenting about warranty though as I got it on Currys eBay page in Jan for £1499 with 5 years warranty and managed to get it on PayPal credit with 0% for 12 months to take the edge off

Lag isn't the issue with these OLED sets. It's static HUD elements in games that cause image retention and potential burn-in. As beautiful as the image is with these sets, they're not the best for games. Hopefully the 2018 OLED screens from LG will improve the burn-in problem, but I'm not holding my breath.

I've had a 2016 B6 OLED for two years now, gamed on it day in, day out, for hours at a time, and have zero burn-in. As long as you are sensible in mixing up the content you watch, you won't have an issue. They are fantastic for gaming on. God of War in HDR is mind-blowing.

Was it bnpl? Or did you have to pay for it monthly for 12 months ?
Would have gone for this,but the 65 inch version, by now if it wasn’t for the length of the warranty. Going to get the C7 though on Monday from RS I think.

This range of OLED TVs are some of the best reviewed TVs ever made and are available for less than half their initial cost, less than 12 months later.

Some of the ports (usb, 1 HDMI, cable, internet, headphone jack) are on the back of the TV) so it cant be totally flush.
They a recessed a little but don't expect it to almost touch the wall.
Its pretty much wall mounted like any other normal modern TV.
The B7 has silver edges, the C7 is the same TV with black edges and a different stand.
I coulnd't say if the edges are noticable as I have the C7 because I didn't want to even bother with the silver edges! ;p

Plus lets be honest it was alot cheaper in november hotukdeals.com/dea…525. Plus you could also get a 5 year warranty from amazon in November for this price aswell. Hands down these are good tvs. But oled is about to drop in price when the £1000 sets start to get released.

As mentioned, you need to call them up. They’re the same price as Currys but you get the 6y guarantee (and the benefit that they’re way better to deal with it something did go wrong) and have them in their warehouse. I prefer the stand on the C7.

Ignore the burn in comments, they tend to be posted by people who don't have one (bit of green eyed monster methinks)

I use my B7 for gaming all the time and not a single issue. Its super responsive and easily the best TV for both lag and image quality. 4k HDR games look jaw dropping, it blows my mates £1k QLED Samsung out of the water.
is the manufacturers warranty not more than 1 year with this anyway? I am presuming screen burn is not covered also?

Permanent burn-in is not covered, no.
MatsyLR53 m ago

RTINGS videos are largely bogus information.

That's the best bit of bogus information of all.

RTINGS are doing everything they have spelled out in multiple posts and videos. They are showing how big a problem burn in is on an OLED panel, with accelerated real world tests, default or calibrated settings. They have automated the testing and allowed the pixel refresher plenty of time to run. Not all of the screens are bright, only one is set ultra bright for direct comparison with a lower brightness screen with the same content on - they are trying to see what factors play into burn-in.
As a B7 owner, I am interested but not concerned however I would like to know what things might affect it over others. Is it just static images, brightness, particular colours more than others or a bit of everything? We know that the nature of organics mean they lose brightness over time but how long are these really designed to last?
Hopefully we'll see some conclusive information from an *independant* test that RTINGS have taken on for us all.

Not meaning to take this post off topic but not a bad price, best for a while. I think I paid about 1150 around Black Friday from John Lewis.
Still undecided on this or the Q7F. Love the one box and remote/operating system of the Samsung. And it' a £300 cheaper. But love the viewing angles and black depth of the B7.

I mainly watch bright and colourful films and TV shows so the Samsung is almost definitely the better choice for me. But these OLED prices are getting vert tempting.
Personally I'm not getting an OLED TV unless it's under £1,000, but holy **** do I want one. Just have to stick it out a little longer...

I've loved OLED since I got the PS Vita, and it blows me away every time.

Absolutely not. The depth and range of colour and contrast is absolutely unmatched by any other display. Everything I’ve played/watched on this thing looks.. well.. perfect.
OLED is by far a superior technology for TV’s. LCDs whatever manufacturers try and do is inherently inferior by design. I can’t find any fault with LG OLED displays . At this price point a bargain

You will never get the brightness of LED/LCD with an OLED but they are plenty bright enough, though are better suited to light controlled rooms for maximum effectiveness. They are far from a meh experience for gaming either way - just google ‘best TVs for gaming’ and they are always up there at the top. I’ve owned top end models in all flavours of TV and I’ll never buy anything but OLED now. All tv technologies have their flaws though and you should research before buying.
Let's hope this weekend they do deal like the Peter Tyson one at £1379
Buy this if your even on the fence, hands down the BEST TV for under £1500 and an OLED at that, I bought at this price with 5 year warranty from Amazon 4K HDR is simply stunning!
