Will the Maestro display have issues with image persistence? I have been leaving my Maestro on many hours of the day. I have experienced image persistence problems with other LCD displays without screen savers.

Comments?

This is also known as ghosting, modern LCD's don't typically have this issue, IPS displays have never had this issue and up until now I didn't think about it. The response will be interesting.

LCD do have what's called Image Persistence not to be confused with Screen Burn-In of CRTs. LCDs do recover eventually unlike CRTs but it can take some time. Both my Icom radios (ic-7300 and ic-7850) either turn the LCD screens off or go to a screen saver.

Agreed.  I have had a few IPS screens I own have an after-image if a strong color is held for too long.  It doesn't damage it long term, but it does tint the next color displayed.  This is most obvious on text that then goes to a solid background.

I would like to have it simply turn off the screen after a user defined period to reduce heat and increase backlight LED life.

We are not aware of any potential issues related to burn-in with the Maestro IPS display.  Regardless, I have added this as a feature request in our bug tracker.

will the new 6400/6600M models have a screen saver mode; shut off screen after a certain amount of time unused?
thanks

That feature is not in the current software
