    I'm sorry that people looking for a discount on the 48-inch model are disappointed. But I'm also incredibly pleased. This is a strong message to manufacturers that gamers want great quality OLED panels for desktop usage. In the long term it will benefit all of us, more 40-inch or similar high...

    I've tried a few. Anno 1800 looks incredible, but isn't my kind of game. Total War: Three Kingdoms is excellent, but it does jutter a tiny bit on maximum ultra + VSYNC settings, which surprised me a bit. I suspect it has this problem on a lot of resolutions though. I've also been trying RPGs...

    LG 48CX

    So, having owned the LG 48CX for a few months (and loving it), I finally managed to get hold of an MSI Gaming Trio X 3090 to pair with it. It's amazing - seriously amazing. This is everything you could want from a combination of high-end kit. Sure it will set you back over £3,000 but it's...

    Has anyone else tried disabling auto-dimming like I have? I'm genuinely curious, as it was driving me crazy and I thought more people would want to do it. I haven't looked back since doing it!

    I'm not sure I want a 10GB 3080. Sure it'd be fine for a couple of years, but then we might start seeing unoptimised PS5 ports start to hit PC. Will 10GB suddenly be a problem?

    I was all set to buy a 3090 today. Then, there was no stock. What a surprise. Now, having read reviews, it seems like a minimal upgrade above a 3080. I'm worried about the 10GB on the 3080. So I don't really want either card - there are compromises either way (3080=memory, 3090=value for...

    Based on prior Titan launches, what can we expect for the 3090?

    I had some bookmarked links to shops selling 3090 AIB models. I saw one go up for sale (the MSI 3090 Trio) for £1,999. That's an insane £600 jump above the base FE, so I imagine there will be some heavy scalping initially, plus knowing customers who buy higher-end kit also want silence hence...

    Thanks for posting this, and congratulations on your new card purchase! I suspect a lot of 30xx owners are in for a surprise when they realise their own HDMI cables aren't really ready for this beast of a TV/display.... me included. But I didn't spend a lot on them, it'll just be a case of...

    It's ok, you won't regret it. You can always tuck your empty wallet under your head at night and whisper "sorry" to it.

    Haha, I love your passion. I spent probably the equivalent of $1800 on SLI dual 1080 cards in 2016. The 3090 is my next upgrade, let's do it HARD! (But I won't be queing at Microcenter, I'll probably just be boring and wait for reviews of quiet fan AIB models so I can pick one that's nice...

    Actually, I think 03.10.44 has solved the issue with screen shift - as soon as it updated, it automatically switched it off (properly). Subsequent to this, I've also turned off Quickstart+ whatever that is...

    Has anyone found a solution to the screen shift bug in the settings yet? i.e. where you keep having to go into "All settings" -> "Picture" -> "OLED Screensaver" -> turn Screen Shift ON then OFF. ? I'm sure when I first got my monitor, I didn't have this problem... I'm convinced it only...

    Does anyone know how to ensure "screen shift" is kept off? It needs to be kept off to keep text sharp. I reset my TV a couple of days ago, and since then every time it restarts it shows "screen shift" as off, but text is blurry. So I need to keep going into the menu to turn it on & off again.

    I've managed to disable ASBL on my LG 48 CX, it's the same procedure as described on the avsforums as for previous LG models. I'm only posting this for information for those that want to do it, and I want to emphasise you should understand the risks before doing anything. I would not recommend...

    LG 48CX

    Well, despite all your advice - I'm going to try disabling the ASBL. I'm somewhat aware of the risks, and realise this might cause problems in the long term, but I'm willing to be a victim of the cause of trying to disable it. I've ordered the MKJ39170828 remote, as mentioned on forums for the...
