Yeah, I fail to see how calibrating the screen to display "real" colours, as opposed to over saturated colours is a "problem".

I rejected a bunch of TVs last time around, because the displays were over saturated and I wanted more realistic colour representation...

As to burn in, I had that on my old iMac 24" LCD and a 20.5" LG LCD display, well, persistence anyway. The image of the menu bar and the dock would ghost over films or games on the iMac and on the LG display, if I played a game for long periods, the "skin" around the status bars and inventory slots was visible on the screen for several hours afterwards.

These problems have been around for decades, it is funny that they are now suddenly a problem.
