YouTuber’s OLED Ultimate Switch test “finally” breaks down after 3,600 hours

You may remember an article we published earlier this year about a Switch OLED 1,800 hour burn-in test. It was created by graphic designer and content creator Bob Wolf on his YouTube channel Wulff’s Hideout. At that time there was “no noticeable burn-in”.

Now he has posted an update on YouTube and reveals in this video how the system is finally showing signs of burglary. It happened after about six months and about 3,600 hours. Again, this is the switch that runs a fixed screen The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Day after day, and it took just as long for the ghosting to appear.

So what’s the verdict? There is “no need to worry” when considering buying an OLED switch:

“Is that something to worry about, definitely not… it took me 3,600 hours to get to this point and he was flat out on that screen the entire time, it’s going to take someone years to do that.” Game, and again this game needs a UI element or something that doesn’t move on screen, and that particular element needs to be on screen for 3,600 hours, a bit of ghosting, even if you’re playing Breath of the Wild specifically. I don’t think that will ever be a problem.

“If that’s why you’re concerned about buying an OLED switch, don’t worry.”

While this experiment has already proven that there is nothing to worry about when it comes to this system’s OLED panel, Wulff still wants to see “how much worse it could get” and how long it will take for the system to become unplayable state passes .

Wulff estimates that it will probably take another 1,800 hours before burn-in becomes potentially “revolutionary”.

He also tested the battery as the system was now plugged into the charger the whole time. In pure battery operation after 3,600 hours, it could still last 8 hours with maximum settings.

“So if you’re concerned about leaving it on the charger for too long, that’s not a problem either.”
