    The PS4 & Xbox One Thread - Part 2

    Nadella is an awesome CEO. His policies of embracing competition instead of burning through wads of cash in petty fights has already brought MS back into the top companies fold for other sectors. Gaming is next!

    Buying from Amazon is much better if you have an AmazonPay ICICI Card. 1.4k cashback on top of 22.7k so effectively 21.3k Edit: and 0% 6 month EMI too.

    Don't buy it from there for saving 1-2k. There's no return/replacement on paytm if there's some issue. If you have an amazon icici card, you can get extra 5% back on op of 22.5k from amazon.

    What you bought this week

    They also have something called screen/pixel shift where they keep shifting the static portions (not sure if just the static portions or the whole image) a little bit to avoid the effect of the logos being displayed on sports/news channels etc. Apart from that, they run some pixel clearing scans over the panel whenever you switch off the tv and then there's a longer run you can do if you see some signs of retention, which is supposed to avoid perma burn ins as well. Another suggestion is to keep the OLED light levels a bit down to avoid it. According to rtings.com, they do see temporary image retention but chance of perma burn-in on 16/17 models is negligible. Ironically, they see higher chances of perma burn in on '18 model. Edit: But yeah, if you are going to use the tv as a workstation screen, don't even look at OLED. That will surely cause you problems.

    What you bought this week

    @kunjanp Yeah, I was wary of the burn in as well and went to the shops looking for Sony X93E but it seems to be oos everywhere (in fact all X9** series is oos). Finally took a chance with this looking at some of the mitigations that LG has apparently done to avoid burn in and some confidence building by rtings.com guys as well. Time will tell though and will update if I see any.

    The TV Decision Making thread

    So I started looking for a 4K tv after Mi TV came about. Tried for a couple of sales unsuccessfully, changed goals to a Sony X93E midway. Went to shop and it seems to be out of stock everywhere and ended up buying an LG OLED 55C7T. Had wanted to buy an OLED tv for long and then splurged somehow. The tv looks gorgeous physically as well as in picture quality. Sound quality is just about average or below average so will have to get a soundbar or something.
