There’s never been a better time to invest in a Samsung UHD TV – here’s why

If you’re considering snapping up a 4K HDR+ TV to go along with a new PS4 Pro, Samsung has an offer that could remove a little buyers’ trepidation.

The company is offering a life-time guarantee against screen burn-in with its 2016 SUHD Quantum Dot “8” and “9” series televisions in the US.

This issue can occur when a TV remains on a single image for a prolonged period of time (a disc menu or Smart TV home screen for instance) and leaves a permanent “burned-in” image on the display.

An Ultra HD TV with HDR technology is likely to be an investment most customers will want to last for 5-10 years.

As such, Samsung has taken the extra step to reassure customers their purchase won’t be undermined if they fall asleep in front of the telly.

In the event of burn-in, Samsung guarantees to either repair or replace any 2016 SUHD Quantum Dot TV with a similar model at no cost for the life of the television,” Samsung wrote in a press release on sent out on Wednesday (via Engadget).

The company also says the guarantee reflects its confidence the new line-up is not susceptible to the burn-in issue.

We thought Samsung might be a little wary of using the word “burn” in any parlance at the moment, but in this case it’s a very good thing.
