    kasakka replied to the thread LG 48CX.
    I had it between 20-30 running in SDR mode. That calibrated to about 120-130 nits on my CX 48".

    kasakka replied to the thread LG 48CX.
    I'd actually use R, G and B primary color screens as well as shades of gray to test as for example in Rtings' burn-in tests the burn in was most visible on particular colors. On my CX 48", after two years of 8+ hour desktop use on weekdays with...

    There is nothing out there that supports DP -> HDMI 2.1 conversion with VRR to my knowledge.

    I think once you’ve owned a monitor and used it as a daily driver for a while you may feel the shine has worn off, it may develop new flaws or you notice and are bothered by things you missed initially. A review a few months in can be pretty...

    The problem is the FPGA of PA32UCG is not powerful enough to make backlight change faster. When the picture is moving, the blooming changes from a circle shape to an even larger square shape. A firmware update won't fix it. I did a custom test...

    Just because something else is worse doesn't make the G8 good. I just see no point in very aggressive AG coatings especially for gaming monitors. People seem to prefer the less obvious coating on the Neo G7. I don't know if it's similar to the...

    Same here. I really want to see more options in above 4K res that don't have the absolute garbage response times of overpriced Apple Studio Display. 32" 6K would be perfect for desktop use if it comes without Apple tax. But I expect these will be...

    Technically it affects everything the display does at all times as it's inherent to the panel and nothing can get around it. Practically if you're using the display only for entertainment and you're sat at a somewhat sensible distance you'll...

    I think I'm going to be obnoxious and stack my C2 above or set it to the side of the PG42UQ once it releases. 138hz, DP and relaxed ABL as well as potentially being as bright as the 48" is too enticing. I checked out someone's 48" OLED monitor...

    I would not trust anything on that site. Most of their content is just stolen from other sources based on what I've seen.

    Twisting the words for a headline eh? Gotta get them clicks!!! "The company will focus instead on OLED TV panels and the automotive market, and will aim to open up new markets for transparent and gaming OLEDs."

    Does LG have LCD factories in China? Considering they make a whole bunch of IPS monitors at the moment and are supposed to come out with IPS panels with improved contrast ratio according to TFTCentral's panel roadmaps.

    kasakka replied to the thread 42" OLED MASTER THREAD.
    I honestly don't think that's much of a problem. I ran the CX 48" for two years set up so that the background is completely black and windows are on top of it. With most of my windows staying in one place you'd think there would be issues but...

    VIewing distance is going to be very personal. Most likely you will want a deep desk or wall mount even for the 42" size. The size of these things is still pretty big so when combined it might be that you will find 125% scaling still more...

    I have a CRG9. Basically the same thing as your Neo G9 but with less curve, worse response times and crappy edge lit HDR. I went from that to the CX 48" mounted 1m distance away. After two years I'm back using the CRG9. Some long term thoughts...

    If you are squinting or leaning in then more than likely you would benefit from bringing the display closer. Run the display at 2560x1440 to gauge how the experience would be in 16:9. Obviously 4K at 32" will be bigger and will resolve more...

    Except near instant response times, per pixel dimming, near perfect viewing angles...mini-LED improves HDR for sure and is less prone to burn-in but is still the same old LCD drawbacks for everything else. Not saying that's not an acceptable...

    I have never done a manual pixel refresh on the CX. Just the automatic ones it does when the display is turned off and kept powered. 60 seems pretty high for SDR brightness. I use my displays around 120-130 nits regardless of time of day and on...

    If you are using Windows, the SDR brightness slider in display settings exactly for adjusting brightness when viewing SDR content. Otherwise you might be just running the thing full blast so I would not be surprised if you get burn in. Meanwhile...

    The blunder with the G8 is the aggressive coating and not offering also that 165 Hz option out of the box. I could see 240 Hz even with scanlines being a viable option playing e.g a multiplayer shooter that can run at those framerates and then...
