    Looks very clean and crisp on desktop, and was a treat to see this morning. Nice job-

    AFAIK, 55" / 65" / 77" 4K panels have their own separate lines apart from the 88" 8K line (the latter of which is relatively new). There's two scenarios: either 48" 4K has its own production line, or 48" 4K is cut from the 88" 8K line. I don't believe it's the former, although I could be wrong...

    Golden oldie - modern monitor with svideo, component and PIP?

    Not sure what size or resolution you're looking for, but you're better off getting a 24-30" LCD TV. Most are 720p, but some models do come in 1080p. I was looking for a display solution back in the fall time for my retro gaming station, so I can confirm that TVs in this size range still come...

    360hz Asus Rog Swift

    That stand's footprint is so unnecessarily large, given the panel size.

    That's interesting, I wonder if that'll have an improved effect on the color volume. IIRC, the 2019 OLEDs stood at around 85% DCI-P3 color volume, and a gamut around 96-97%.

    I would be surprised if LG lists the 48CX that low. Based on LG’s typical deep sale prices, especially around the holidays, I would peg the price around $1199-$1299 a year from now. Currently, the 55C9 is going for $1499, and the 65C9 at $2099. There definitely will not be a $600 difference...

    It would also seem to have the added side effect of further mitigating (if not completely eliminating?) the chance for image-retention and burn-in. This looks like a home run for LG. Can't believe this didn't gain more press coverage.

    Some new information regarding BFI, which it seems will be present in LG's 2020 OLEDs. Via FlatPanelsHD: https://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1579257548 "With its 2020 OLED TVs, Sony will introduce X-Motion Clarity, which is made possible by LG Display's upgrade to a...

    LG's OLEDs are first and foremost TVs, and they market them as such despite having gamer-oriented "features" which are really just part of HDMI 2.1 as well as the overall superior aspects of OLED vs LCD. NVIDIA's proprietary, walled-garden G-Sync basically had a quiet death. That happened when...

    You could do something like an L-shaped corner desk. Your "main" monitor would actually be the smaller one (for web browsing and productivity), in the corner of the L. You could then wall mount the 48" on the long side, and simply re-orient yourself in your chair for gaming or entertainment...

    As the creator of the thread, yes. And well, it's true. It's already been well established and discussed around here that if what you're looking to do is spreadsheet work and word processing, OLED isn't you're best option. Any LCD as a second monitor would suffice, of which there are many cheap...

    If you turn down the OLED Brightness setting (different than the regular brightness setting), you'll rarely see ABL kick into action. I have my C7 set to somewhere between 30-40 and I almost never see ABL and I've owned the TV for over two years. The only times where I've actually noticed it is...

    I am not ashamed to admit that I bought a 25ft HDMI cable just to play RE2 Remake on Steam. Ran it from my PC in my office out to the C7 in my living room, and used my wireless XBox controller. Worth every single penny. Game looks gorgeous on OLED, and that's even with Capcom's botched HDR...

    Although it's not related to the 48CX, I figure since it straddles the line between living room game console and desktop PC use, some here (like myself) might also be interested in audio to go along with it. Well, it seems AVRs with HDMI 2.1 will finally be arriving! I couldn't find a whole...

    I used to own the Dell U2711, the grain from the hard coating on that was intense. It caused me to get a U2713 a couple years later, which I still use to this day, and like you I'm holding out. But at least I got to enjoy 1440p well before it was what all the cool kids use. Once new GPUs with...
