    Hi, I was surprised that you gave the best TV to Philips. But I was even more surprised that you gave the best gaming tv to the LG OLED65C1 as I have a 4yr old LG OLED C8 which has severe burn-in from video games. Are you saying that in the recent panels OLED burn-in has been resolved?

    I don’t think they’re saying no burn-in possible. If you contact LG about your screen burn they will offer you a new panel for £250 roughly.
