Here is my post from another thread as I'm looking at picking up the 65"PLA this weekend:

I was bothered by 'burn in' as well, so I phoned LG last Friday to discuss. In addition, I popped into town on Saturday and spoke to an LG rep and ultimately both conveyed the same message - burn in (or Image retention) occurs from misuse of the TV, or some older models.

In short, they said if you display a static picture for example, turn off all protection measures and set to maximum brightness and leave it on there for 16 hours, or dont turn off your TV for days then there is a chance burn in could occur. A chance, not it definitely will.

Even Samsung who offer burn in protection:
When CNET reached out to Samsung for details, the representative defined "normal consumer use" as "use of the product by consumers in a home environment for viewing content and/or gaming in a typical manner. It doesn't cover business use."
So even then you question what is defined as normal use, which is exactly what LG are saying - basically dont abuse it.

However, the newer LG models have some protection elements in place. They have pixel refresher, so it was explained to me that when you put your TV in stand by mode, or turn off, the pixels then refresh themselves. Also a safety feature LG use is Luminance Adjustment, if you were watching football or something with a static image in one place for hours then the pixels are auto adjusted in brightness to prevent burn in or image retention.

The point is, a lot was explained and set my mind to rest. The LG Rep said he owns the older OLED (without protective features in place) and still going strong. He said after owning an OLED he could never go back to a LCD/LED.

I will be buying an LG OLED now. Hope the above helps you - also worth looking on Google about the refreshers, might help ease your mind a little.

Tbf an LG rep would say that, I wasn't convinced enough. We went for a high end, well reviewed SONY, I know it will be a big step up from what we have now so I'm happy ( it arrives tomorrow ), I also couldn't justify the extra £500 for the OLED.

If the website doesn't show the discount don't worry, add the TV to your cart then the price will show the discount. Tried it just now.
Wow, this is super cheap. It was £1099 on black Friday.
Buy quickly!
Remember that this comes with extended warranty for 5 years. So should be great.

Interesting indeed, Costco appliances are just the main stream version from the manufacturer and not a customised stripped down version like some other retailers. My bet is it will come with a regular magic remote, but can only confirm once received. Anyways the TV has built in support for Google home and Alexa as well, so perhaps that's a solution if it didn't come with thinQ AI remote
Does JL price match?

I guess not the version you mean is B8PLA, but both are priced the same for some reason. The chances are 95%of buyers of such TV either have atmos audio setup, planning to get one, or at least have good audio setup already.

Fantastic price. I wonder whether £999 will become standard entry pricing for 55” OLEDs this year?

With the warranty from Costco I have zero worries.

I once returned a sofa 5 years after purchase as they couldn't repair or replace it.

When you read the terms of warranty on their website, unlike all other retails with extended warranty (JL for example) they don't mention screen burn as an exclusion. Which makes me ask if anyone has experience with this screen burn under Costco warranty?

I was impressed by the LG SK9Y Atmos Sound bar I just heard playing in a store. Very impressive for a sound bar and now priced at £650.
Of course a full system better but lots more wiring and setup needed. Also, better soundbars out there but they also carry the higher price tag....
Just my thoughts on this model anyway, I was surprised!

An excellent constructive post, mate. It's worth noting that much of the same stuff you've quoted was used to sell plasma to me around 8 years ago (pixel orbiter technology, screen refresh wiping and whatnot) but none of it prevented me from getting burn in.

I'm still glad I went for a plasma because of how good the picture has been over those years but I ended up with burn in through normal use and would be concerned about the same happening if I bought into OLED.
The I wouldn’t worry about burn in so much, dead pixels galore on these TVs.

As for the remote, it sill has the same functionality as the TV requires it. Just not the new ThinQ branding one, it’s the old one.
Thanks OP - I was just about to get one from Crampton & Moore for £1049!
