    Far Cry 6

    Cool. And yes - 3 was the game I was thinking about. I haven’t played any of them since 3 but 4 and 5 looked like the same game, different setting / plot.

    If we played any of the previous installments we’ve basically played this one? Not that that’s a bad thing…

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I would advise against it. The 8ms 60hz BFI versus CRT would make the OLED blurry in comparison. 120hz BFI brings it closer but you’d still see a difference. The Viewsonic XG-2431 is better than the OLED for motion clarity and I can still see it’s short comings compared to CRT. It’s not...

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    If it’s not bad then leave it. Biggest regret of my FW-900 besides getting rid of it. EDIT - looking at your pictures on a larger screen than my phone. :) I can't even see where it's damaged. Leave it.

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    I’m sure they all work the same. I do remember though, seeing that AMD cards could force sRGB color space though. That could be an advantage potentially? Or maybe not. CRT monitors are SMPTE-C/Rec 601. The sRGB clamp in AMD cards are really only helpful for wide gamut screens. So yeah, I’m...

    Made you a man. Yes we all remember. Still have a crt monitor so I still deal with it. I actually miss my high end ones. But to each his own.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I mean you’re probably right. At 4ms we’re splitting hairs right? Even the vaunted GDM-FW900 had ghosting. So yes I don’t doubt you. Here’s to hoping LG pulls its head out its ass and gives us back 120hz BFI.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    The blurbusters monitor technically beats it but the OLED has zero crosstalk. You can get close with custom modes on the Viewsonic monitor but you get crosstalk-free strobing out the box with OLED.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    By definition it does not. Only the LG CX and C1 (120hz only) come close at 4ms of persistence. The worst crt monitors are still around 2ms persistence (not counting some of the early monochrome crt monitors - those actually had bad ghosting if you can believe! :) ). No, the most recent OLEDs...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    CRT motion is still king. I still have one and its advantage in this area is still unsurpassed. Not saying crt is still the best display. It’s been long since surpassed by plasma and OLED in other regards but it’s still untouched in motion clarity.

    Sweet. Good to hear. I'll keep my eyes peeled for monitors using this panel. I would eventually like to get a nice OLED display. Would love a huge one for the living room but I have little kids and the whole "casting pearls before swine" thing comes to mind. May just continue to stick to...

    Rtings’s input lag measurements show the C2’s BFI implementation lagging at 30ms, versus the C1’s 10ms, also.

    Ah that would make sense. The Samsung tv doesn’t have it either.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    It’s an option. Don’t want it, don’t enable it. Seeing as the engineers at LG already figured out how to implement it, I would have to imagine they spent more effort removing it from the C2 than leaving it in. Remember it’s a self-emissive display. Literally no tuning required to make it...

    Finally started playing Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. Wow. Very atmospheric game. Great dialog, and great voice acting. Just spent a little over an hour on it and I can already tell I'm going to like it.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Funny enough, OLED’s contrast is so good that this cheating really shouldn’t be necessary. I think though, that it’s a shame that the nature of the cheating wasn’t discussed in the article. Basically, on 10% windows the TV *stops* boosting the output, so that it can be calibrated. Otherwise...

    LED’s degrade. Not as quick as organic material but they do degrade.

    ASUS 25" 500hz TN panel

    The best displays in our history have all been self emissive. Even the new micro led will be prone to burn-in. Maybe not as much as OLED but if there’s a chance that any pixels would be more used than others then they will degrade sooner (and thus exhibit burn-in). That’s the reality. Nothing...

    etienne51 yes the 520 be sharp. You can game on it all the way up to max res and it’s fine. I found 1920x1440 to be the sweet spot that I left mine on for games and desktop. That monitor rocked.

    Interest in brand new 8K 80Hz CRT for 8000$?

    Chief Blur Buster did you see my question about rtings? I would love to see them pick apart the BFI implementations and actually score them accordingly, rather than score it based on whether or not the tv has it. Is there any way we can talk to them or ask them? I was going to post on their...

    Interest in brand new 8K 80Hz CRT for 8000$?

    3dfan I think you're being a little overly harsh here. I get what you're talking about though and I agree with you for the most part, in terms of how far we still have to go to actually replace CRT. Burt right now, there's nothing else like the XG2431. And even still with all of its flaws I...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I haven't watched the video but I'm guessing the OLED won? Beyond a certain resolution our eyes are more attracted to brightness and contrast than resolution. For most people, 4K is beyond that resolution barrier.

    It's funny. I have one of their older "dumb" plasma TV's. And it absolutely doesn't pull this kind of trickery off. Oh well, whatever. I'm pretty settled on if I get an OLED then C1 is the one I want and not C2.

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Not to mention (regarding the brightness in test patterns vs real-word), S95B was found to be doing the same thing on HDTV reviews. The image processor, when detecting standard test patterns, seems to dial things in differently so that the TV measures fine. Once you fool it though (give it a...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Yeah I would say the S95 is a bust until they fix that shit firmware. They’re fucking with the gamma to exaggerate the contrast advantages of OLED. As if they needed to. I’d rather have the disadvantages of LG’s “inferior” tech if it means an accurate picture. I’m guessing that Sony’s...
