“To help protect the display, XENEON FLEX OLED boasts a sophisticated burn-in prevention system which operates when both powered on, and when switched off, to ensure a flawless image even after extended UI or OS use, all backed by a three-year Zero Burn in and Zero Dead Pixel Warranty,” Corsair noted as an assurance to prospective buyers who are worried about permanent image retention.
Corsair’s other XENEON monitors comprise the XENEON 32UHD144, XENEON 32QHD165, and XENEON 32QHD240, a 32-inch IPS display with a 240 Hz refresh rate and support for HDR600.
Other bendable OLED displays include the OLED Flex, which LG introduced in August as the world’s first bendable 42-inch OLED screen, able to go from completely flat to curved (900R), with users being able to choose from 20 levels of curvature.
The OLED Flex is currently listed on LG’s store for $2,499.99 (discounted from its $2,999 MSRP), making it pricier than Corsair’s option.
