OLED Image Retention or Burn-In: Burn-in and image retention are possible on virtually any display. Most cases of burn-in in OLED displays are a result of static images or on-screen elements displaying on the screen uninterrupted for many hours or days at a time โ€“ with brightness typically at peak levels. To mitigate this, we would recommend not to have your Looking Glass 16" display connected to your computer if you are not showing any moving content for hours at a time.
