Looks like refurbs of the spectacular LG C1 are on sale on Woot! Haven't read anything about refurbs for these, but the TV itself is a great screen.

I got the CX refurbished from Woot ahile back for $890...kicking mysf now since this is a way better deal. I use mine for desktop usage and love it so much. Only things that have even compared are super ultrawides but even that isn't a fair comparison in most cases. For gaming AND productivity, this is king.

As for the refurbished state, it's an Amazon company so just return it if it comes damaged or too used for your liking. Mine had like a month worth of the hours I would put on it daily (I WFH and play games in my free time so I probably spend at least 10 hours a day on average with it on). Mine now has 1000+ hours on it and no burn in yet. Would highly recommend.

With plasmas and CRTs, the risk of burn in is highest in the first 100 hours, then after that there is no worry with normal use.

Is OLED burn in different?

I admittedly have very little experience with CRTs or Plasmas, so I couldn't speak for them specifically. Rtings does a burn in test on OLEDs that shows how these stack up to real-world usage, so I would defer to that if you're worried about the possibility with your specific use case.

And if you're going to use it as a PC monitor like I am, there are a few things you can do to decrease the chances of burn in. There is a community over on reddit about usingg OLEDs on PC and they've written some good guides on how to hide task bars, setup screensavers, etc to prolong its life.

Hope that helps!

Lol newbs still worried about burn in on these OLED sets. Been gaming and watching news on my three OLEDs for 4 years now and don't have any hint of burn in. Just don't be an idiot and stare at bright static images for hours on end and you're good.

tempting, but have two 40" 4k Samsung LCD now and plenty big for monitors. DPI is about exactly where I want it. Hoping the 42" OLED's start shipping soon and have a good price. May bite then.

Could i really just take this down to the amazon store for returns and not have to ship this?

LG Will not honor any warranty on your oled purchased this way.


DO NOT purchase any LG oled through Woot unless you are aware and willing to accept your OLED burn in occurring within a year.

Some screens get bad burn in really fast. Others last some time. All suffer from burn in via different ways.

I made the mistake of purchasing mine through eBay and am forced to purchase another after 3 years. LG would have warranty covered and replaced mine if I had just spent the extra 100$ and purchased from BB.

Why on refurbished? Refurbs generally go through far more stringent testing than initial products off a production line.

Just paid 1799 for the 65" at best buy
You'd be a fool not to buy the 55" at this price. Amazing TV

Is OLED burn in different?
Completely different. It's the opposite with OLED. The odds of significant visually perceptible burn-in will asymptotically approach 100% as panel hours increase over time. That said, for many people it may well not be an issue over the life span of their TV and may not be the limiting factor that kills the device. Mitigation strategies and panel longevity has improved a lot in the past few generations. And even when you do eventually get visible burn-in, it may not affect you in most situations.

Burn-in on OLED is determined by the panel and usage on that panel. On OLED, every sub-pixel produces its own light. Burn-in is caused by sub-pixels (on a macroscopic scale in a noticeable pattern) becoming dimmer due to voltage drops, caused by uneven pixel wear (e.g. If red sub-pixels are worn out in an area of the screen, you'll see them be dimmer if red has to be shown on the display). It isn't fundamentally even due to specific static elements, and even pixel shifting helps only to a limited degree (as burn-in is noticeable when it is present over macroscopically large areas). So it's about total wear, and static elements can cause burn-in by inducing uneven wear over long time periods.

Personally, I bought the recent deal for a ~$1100 55" C1 OLED TV (after accounting for all the stacked promotions) from BuyDig on eBay. This included a 4-Year Accident Protection Warranty (Includes Burn-In Coverage) and I got 2 additional years extended standard Warranty with the Costco Anywhere Visa. I'd recommend buying that deal instead for the 48"/55" if you can get the eBay Bucks, and then couple that with cashback from certain websites. Plus, only devices with manufacturer warranty coverage can get extension with credit cards.

Isn't amazon giving 10% off 1799? Why best buy?

This is a horrible deal, how is it front page?

Who would spend $1000+ on a refurbished TV?

They are selling the LG C1 55" for $1100

Best Buy is selling it BRAND NEW for $200 more.
