Sceen savers are flashy and look cool LOL
Nah, I think burn in is still with us, unfortunately. It just takes many hours to (I heard 6 for a TV) to set in. But thanks for the reassurance Him.

No, I'm sorry, but burn in is no longer with us. Have you ever had a monitor burn in on you? I havent. My monitors are aLAWYS on, and never burn in. however, exactly as you said, they are flashy and look cool. They USED to serve a purpose, but now they are just used because of nostalgia purposes and look cool.

Hell our school's pre95 monitors barely burned in from a week

I always leave my 98 sony and early 1990's dell monitors on for 6+ hours same image, no burn in.

not true. it just take a whole lot longer for them to burn in than old moniters. months and years instead of weeks
