More [H]uman than Human

Unreal...and I had high hopes for it, too.
Yeah, I realize that the panels are different between the others and these, but he was asking about other options in the 40"+ 4K realm. I was just trying to suggest others that I'd heard of, which probably don't have issues with burn in but likely have their own unique caveats. NONE of these seem to be perfect, no-compromise displays which is frustrating.The 40" panels are VA, whilst the BDM4350UC and the Dell P4317Q are both IPS panels - this first of their kind at this size I think. Despite both panels being exactly the same size, the Philips is meant to be one from a parent company manufacturer, whilst the Dell is meant to be LG AH-IPS panel but I've never taken one apart (due to lack of owning one) to find out exactly who makes what.
Despite the alleged difference in the panels, the fact their sizes are identical (and I mean, the visible height, width and diagonal are exactly the same) and they both have the same defect showing, I believe that they are the same panels. Although why Dell would put it through R&D/mftr without spotting this and saying "stop" is astounding.
edit: also yes, first owners of the dell panels have uploaded photos already of burn in happening within 15 minutes of switch on.
