In March this year, we reported on a YouTuber’s quest to test the limits of the Switch OLED display as he left the console running for 3,600 hours. Well we are happy to say that Bob Wulfon his YouTube channel, Wulff’s laircontinued, with the console now accumulating 7,000 hours of continuous screen time.
Demonstrate the effects of such a poster marathon in a new youtube short, Wulff showed us that if the burn-in of its last update remains in place, the console is still far from having given up. In fact, pixel shadowing has been such a small issue that it’s only visible on very bright or very dark screens.
Wulff’s OLED Switch has been stuck on the same image of a Breath of the Wild shrine for around 10 months now, with pixel burn-in only occurring in areas that display extremely bright lights.
In his last 3,600 hour update, Wulff predicted that the console would only have around 1,800 hours left before pixel burn-in became “game-changing”, and yet, today, this end-of-life time is extended by almost double of the original. estimate.
Those bent on ruining their Switch OLEDs by leaving them on the same bright screen for most of the year might have to wait longer to get some real endgame results, but for those of you turn off your screen at the end of use (strange you, you), your OLED quality will be just fine.
