    Haven't seen the video but the featured plasma was not the brightest plasma though and if I recall correctly, that was the main reason Panasonic lost the last ever shoot out including plasmas to Samsung. At least that was the reason I bought it...

    Lets not forget that frequency affects the measured input lag. For what it's worth, I am using my GX to play CS GO (in a lower resolution with scaling disabled) and I have a hard time distinguish it from my 240 hz TN panel, at least not to a...

    Really weird, on my GX, I have not problems keeping it disabled just by disabling it the normal way.

    I think I understand what's going on here. When you enable/disable screen shift there is a noticable zoom in/out for some weird reason. However, this only seem to affect the overlay UI of the LG menu system, not the actual image being displayed...

    My dudes, i have discovered how to keep Pixel Shift turned off. Go to the Settings -> General -> Additional Settings and turn off "Quick Start+". Now the Pixel Shift button works "as intended" and keeps the setting off when power cycling the TV...

    Well, I never believed in the lying down solution, if not for the fact that stuff would simply start falling down for a normal working space. But I think that a well reclined position could be the best of both worlds (ideally one that could be...

    I made one of those setups years ago with a zero gravity chair to see how I like It. It turns out that lying down like that using a computer is better in theory than practice. It was annoying, uncomfortable and impractical. Why you hardly ever...

    Yes, this really irritates me. I bought this BenQ 32" 4K monitor in 2015, and it's a solid productivity monitor, but is stuck at 60 hz. I was certain I would have been playing on a 32"+ 4k 120 hz g sync monitor by now but for some reason they...

    I have the GX and that has surprisingly good speakers, but if I don't remember wrong, the GX might have better speakers than the CX. That said, LGs OLEDs usually have quite good speakers even in the C-series.

    It's definitely stretching it and that why I, and others it seem, would like something like a 32-35" version of the X27. On the other hand, if a 27" can give you same screen real estate and FOV at a closer distance than a as a 48"/55" at larger...

    I was using a X27 before getting the CX48. After the honeymoon phase of the CX48 was over, I honestly can't wait for a bigger version of the X27. There are certain annoyance with the CX48 or OLED in general that I rather not deal with. Things...

    I guess a 27" 4K with no scaling is out of the question then :) Funnily, it used to be the way around, that matte screens had coatings that used to drive at least me nuts as I always felt the screen was dirty. But these days that seem to have...

    Everything is about compromises. I ran an X27 as a daily driver for over a year and its desktop/web use is unparalleled. But lacked any real immersion for gaming. Personally I think a 32" 4K 120+ Hz monitor is the "Sweet spot" for all around...

    Thanks, will try that. Do you know what the main changes were? I guess "to the point where I can live with it" means that there is still room for improvement (in general, probably not to the profile used). One thing I have found when comparing...

    There was someone in this thread that posted a icc profile after calibrating, I used his ICC profile and it cleared up text a lot for me to the point I can live with it. I've attached the file that gentleman had linked here.

    I agree on the strange lack of 32-35" IPS LCD screens (at least if you want something that is suitable for gaming as well). The Acer X32 is supposed to be released sometimes soon, but who knows when that is and the price is well...steep. The...

    I've been working from home now for several months, and for about half of that time, I've had my CX 55. It's been serving dual-duty, both as my primary screen for my PC and game consoles, but also as my secondary screen for my work laptop. I'm a...

    Right, I find a 27" 4k monitor to be too small and then I have to scale. So 4k with a big monitor I find works best. More real estate I can actually use. Besides my 48" cx, I have a 27" Apple monitor and a 34" LG IPS (don't use any of those...

    Thanks. 125% scaling on a 55", how far from it are you sitting? :) One thing though is that I know I have seen from other monitors that scaling actually seem to improve text quality in some cases, not really sure why. But of course you loose...

    Thanks. What size do you have, 48"? Not sure if OSX perhaps can handle the pixel structure of the OLED better than Windows? BTW, the screen real estate of a 4K screen is the same regardless of the size, the ability to see it might be different...
