Wonder how many times they’ll accept a claim https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/television/quantum-dots-can-t-burn-in-so-what-is-samsung-s-new-warranty-all-about-1325990


What Samsung have actually highlighted, is that they are incapable of manufacturing large screen OLEDs.

Great price for the C8
Really thinking about buying this just wondering will the 5 year warranty cover burn-in as I'm still concerned about it as I haven't had a OLED before, thanks

Most warranties won't cover burn-in as that's the 'user's fault'. I've been told by many 'experts' at various retailers that it's only a problem if you leave a static image for more than a few hours..
Great price by the way

Warranty does not cover burn in. Burn in is never covered on any manufacturers warranty.

Thanks for the reply think I'm going to take the jump, I have never ordered a TV online though, usually collect from store. Hopefully no damage when it's delivered.
I think Crampton and Moore are part of Euronics too and would probably price match this. Only 4 left in stocks . Oh and as Hills have a store, John Lewis would price match too.

In this day and age they don’t necessarily need to have the capability themselves. Sony are quite happy to build high end TVs using LG panels and differentiate their products with their motion processing chips.

Having seen OLED and QLED side by side, I can say I prefer the black and colour of the LG to the punchy HDR brightness of the QLED. The price difference can’t be ignored though and I’m not entirely comfortable in the screen burn issue yet, like many others.

I suspect they could, but it would put them in an awkward position. They currently have high end LCD's that are offered in the very high price range. Where do OLEDs fit in?

Sony has basically had to shift down their LCD range to fit their OLED flagships at the top. I suspect Samsung would be kind of forced to do the same. But if they're making great money on the margins they're currently selling their high end LCD's, how much benefit is there to doing what Sony did? Samsung still have a great reputation with their QLEDs, so it's not like they're suffering here. I'd guess Samsung just dont see the difficulties and expense worth it, and seem to be pinning their R&D efforts into MicroLED instead. Which might well be the winning bet in the long run.

It's very much a real thing. I'm glad you've been fortunate to not have the issue, but that does not mean anybody else who does have the issue is wrong or lying.

It's something any OLED buyer should be aware of the potential of, so please dont mislead people.

Agree the expense isn’t worth it to build a comparable product bought to market late. But it might be worth it build a superior product, though they might want to be careful about how they position QLED and OLED if they expect to produce the latter in future.

google.co.uk/amp…oon

They have also produced an OLED set before that must have used someone else’s panel. And they made some pretty boastful claims about the tech...

Good debate everyone is having anyway and the constant competition surely benefits us all as the boundaries are pushed.

This doesn't seem to be too much of an issue anymore, though I might not be comfortable buying OLED if I wanted a TV for the next 7-10 years or something.

No, that TV was definitely their own OLED. They just simply didn't seem to think that continuing with OLED was worth it because of the costs of doing so. At the time, there were still a lot of issues and yields were poor. Sony gave up on it as well. I'm sure either could have improved things given time as both have amazing hardware teams, but only LG really wanted to persist with it.

And I hadn't heard about their upcoming hybrid stuff. Neat.

Ah that sucks. Richer Sounds could be an alternative?
I have a B6, and it's still going strong with zero burn in. As long as you're not a plank and leave static images on the screen for hours, then it'll be fine.
I use mine in a rough even 3 way split for Sky, Netflix, and Xbox.

I have set my xbox screensaver to kick in after a few minutes, the netflix app takes care of the screen saver itself, the Sky is the only one I need to be careful of, and pausing that doesn't trigger any type of screensaver. So if I have to pause Sky for lengthy periods of time (an hour or so) I just pause the Sky then switch to an empty input to activate the screensaver or switch the TV off while leaving it paused.

There's probably a way to activate a Sky Q screensaver, but I haven't looked.

It’s also not true. You need hundreds going on thousands of hours of static content to start seeing burn in. The only people it will affect in 95% of cases are people that play games like Overwatch/Fortnite for thousands of hours or people that watch news channels with static logos for 6+ hours every day: rtings.com/tv/…est

Qled by Samsung covers it for 10 years against burn in


What’s your point? I can offer you a 20 year screen burn warranty on this umbrella I’m selling. It’s no bother to me as you won’t get screen burn on an umbrella just like you won’t get screen burn on a QLED. The fact that Samsung had to resort to a marketing gimmick like this is because they’ve been getting beaten in the premium tv market by OLED sales for the last few years

I’ve only just made my first posts in this thread? Still not sure what your point is. Samsung’s burn in warranty is a pointless attention grab. Do you disagree?
