Just setup my OBi1062 and absolutely love it. Question for those who have any of the OBi1000 series desk phones... any issues over time with LCD screen burn-in?  I know I could enable the screen saver (or turn off the screen altogether) but I find it distracting.  Currently I have the brightness turned down to the lowest setting (0) but still wonder if it will burn-in.

How old are you?  If you're old enough to have used cathode ray tube (CRT) displays, you remember screen burn-in, which was caused by the electron beam from the picture tube gradually destroying the phosphor coating on the glass.

There is no burn in on LCDs.

Ouch, thanks. So the Screensaver function is purely for aesthetics then.

...or, to reassure people who believe there is still a need for a screensaver.

I beg to differ, although it can be reversed

I agree and very often, the image retention would be permanent, especially on the AMOLED screens.
