MSI QD-OLED monitors are now covered by a 3-year burn-in warranty

If you're in the market for a new gaming display, you'll likely come across various OLED monitors. While OLEDs have become increasingly popular, these monitors can be prone to burn-in. For those worried about this possibility, MSI is now offering a 3-year burn-in warranty for its OLED monitors. 

Unfortunately, there's no cure for burn-in because of the organic nature of OLED. However, manufacturers have implemented various remedies to mitigate the issue, such as pixel shifting or logo illumination reduction. To address the concerns of gamers who play for long periods, manufacturers have started offering extended warranties.

For example, MSI is extending the warranty for burn-in issues on some of its QD-OLED monitors to three years. While the specifics of the warranty are unclear, consumers are likely required to follow the “MSI OLED Care” guidelines to be eligible. The MSI QD-OLED monitors covered by this 3-year burn-in warranty include the MAG 271QPX QD-OLED, MAG 321UPX QD-OLED, MAG 341CQP QD-OLED, MPG 271QRX QD-OLED, MPG 321URX QD-OLED, MPG 491CQP QD-OLED, and MEG 342C QD-OLED.

Dell Alienware is another company that offers a three-year guarantee for their OLED displays. However, it's worth noting that users can only swap the monitor once every three years, and there may be a possibility of receiving a reconditioned item. Meanwhile, Asus, as noted by TFTCentral, only offers a two-year burn-in warranty for its OLED gaming monitors.

KitGuru says: Keep in mind that burn-in is less likely to occur if you don't leave your system idle without a screensaver. Nevertheless, if you're a frequent gamer and want to ensure the longevity of your OLED display, it may be worth considering a warranty that covers burn-in.
