Does the Nintendo Switch OLED panel burn out? YouTuber put the equipment to the test

YouTuber Wulff Dens tested the panel of the Nintendo Switch OLED leaving the console on for months showing a static image of the game Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The results were more than satisfactory for those who are discouraged from buying the hybrid console due to Burn-in.


After 1,800 hours straight with the same background image and full brightness, the Switch OLED screen still showed no signs of grading. Only at 3600 hours the panel began to show the symptoms of Burn-in.

You can go to minute 3:00 to see how a small halo appears, also known as ghosting, in the panel of the Nintendo Switch OLED. It should be noted that the detail is not very remarkable, but it is not that the panel is immaculate as if it were new.
