65 inches. But we all know size doesn't matter :P

Depends, do you consider a projector a TV? If so, 110", if not 65"

55". I'll never buy another OLED type TV. I have burn in image from TV stations that insist in having their logo on the bottom of the screen. With OLED, there are options in the configuration that will refresh each LED, but it's not turned on by default.

Don't get me wrong Reno - the picture is incredible, but you have to be diligent in running the maintenance apps that comes with the TV.

The problem for my TV is it was purchased in early 2017, and the apps they have were improved in the newer models. The app is called "pixel refresher". Our burn in image is from the Today show which is what my wife watches. Once the image is burned in, it's too late to fix it. It's noticeable when a yellow or red color is shown. It looks like a smudge. it will look like this over time:

CNN is another station that has caused burned in images.

Had to buy a new TV for the family room after our remodel and I was on the wall between OLED or LED. After reading about some issues with burn-in, I decided to stick with LED.

Just picked up a 75" Sony Bravia LED. Was torn between it or LG nano LED, or Samsung QLED. After all the back and forth, I said screw it and stuck with the tried and trued Bravia line, regular ULTRA HD 4K LED type. Havent mounted it yet as Im trying to get someone to buy the entertainment center I built many years ago. Ive really lost the taste for LG after they stopped supporting my Google TV and my LG phone has been the biggest piece of shit in the last few years.

46" in master bedroom, 46" in step sons room, 55" in daughters room, and the 47" Google TV we have in living room now will go in my other sons room so he can ditch the 22" lol.

A 10 year old 50" in the master bedroom. Only other TV is a 42" plasma in the living room. We mostly consume on our computers/phones.

Picked up an echo dot. Pretty handy being able to operate TV by voice when the remote goes MIA lol. Now I just need a smart switch in the kitchen/dinning room when the kids leave the light on while watching a movie. The LED lights in both rooms are silly bright.

So let me see if I understand this... OLED tv suffer the same burning issues that plasma had? I know OLED look amazing but I think I will get a nice LED LCD tv. One that has really good control of the back lights. I wont be as good as OLED but I probably wont notice.

As I stated, the newer TV's for OLED have maintenance options to run, but if you leave CNN on all day, it's probably not a good idea to get that type of TV. I don't know WHY it's important for TV stations to have their stupid logo on all the time, especially CNN. So if you get a OLED, make sure to run the pixel refresher. These options should be on by default, but my TV options were turned off by default. Once burned it, you won't be able to fix it. I'm going to live with mine since I don't notice it until there is a red or light yellow background color.
