Image Retention Aka "Burn In"

The price of monitors continues to fall but image retention in LED monitors continues to be an issue, especially with consumer monitors when the same layout of cameras and menus is used on the display every day.

How much does one have to pay these days to buy a "surveillance monitor" to avoid image retention, e.g. a monitor with 1920x1080 resolution?

What specs should one look for when searching for a surveillance monitor? Are there any new technologies that help, e.g. IPS displays?

Do surveillance monitors really avoid image retention or do they just take longer to suffer from the same problem? Thank you for any information on this topic.
