    Removing PIP border in Windows 11

    Windows 11 has a pixel wide border around windows and applications, even if you remove the border color, there remains a gray border. Not a problem, but viewing content with the internet browser in PIP (picture in picture) mode, it also has the same border. You just want to view the content with...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    This so much. I've been predominantly playing stealth and immersive games at evenings and nights most of my gamer life. The OLED is a revolution. I recently tried some of them again on my IPS and everything was just glowing gray, my room lit out and I couldn't see any of the details in the dark...

    LG 48CX

    The absolutely worst thing about this monitor (C1) is the fact that you get used to it. I keep switching to my IPS 32" often to keep the C1 experience fresh.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    It is not perfect if you have no room real estate (small desktop table). To me the real advantage of a 48" is that I can use it at a much greater distance and still have a big monitor. Gaming on my 48" feels like I'm gazing into the distance. Once I went back to the 32", gaming felt like my...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I knew pricing would be high on those. Paid exact same for the 48C1 as the price of some gaming 32" IPS' available at that time (while the technology is infinitely better than those LCD's) and enjoying it since November with no care in the world. Of course, at some point those new OLED's will...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    It is not preference, it is objective. Glossy is superior in every way, except when a lot of light is involved, than it is inferior in every way. It is just that black and white. The best compromise is an antireflective coating, good for everything, excellent in none. It is just all gray then.

    Also have RTX2080 with C1. Use the USB-C adapter for HDMI 2.1. It does 4k 120Hz and 10bit. Only VRR doesn't work.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    The thing that blew me away with 48" C1 is how almost 1:1 life sized everything looks, while you still have a large peripheral field of view without tunnel vision. With the perfect black it is the closest thing to virtual reality while still using a monitor.

    Poll - Computer Monitor: Antiglare vs Reflective?

    Depends on the actual coating, but in my experience a reflective surface gives the better picture.

    Samsung 34" QD-OLED

    I had my Dell U2711 for about 9 years. It was so good that I never looked for an upgrade. Upgraded to a 32" LG only because I physically damaged the panel of the Dell and despite 4k on the LG, the overall experience has been worse (too much glow, worse colour accuracy, etc). The Dell was the...

    An underrated fact. I have been 4k gaming since years and still keep hearing how 4k isn't gaming ready yet if you don't have the latest best GPU.

    Want new monitor

    After gaming on an 48" OLED, my 32" feels tiny, which felt giant after gaming on my old 27". Be very careful with upgrades, there is no way back. :D

    Samsung 34" QD-OLED

    It is the same question that I have. I was looking for a larger than 32" monitor, but all you get is ultrawide, which is basically 1440p with extra width. I needed a proper 4k 16:9 variant that is larger than 32", however. Didn't exist.

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    Most IPS' currently stick to the abysmal 1000:1 contrast ratio, except LG. I couldn't believe how bad M32U's picture looked compared to my LG32UD99 (1600:1) when it comes to watching movies or having dark content in games. Washed out just like an old CRT. I think LG's UltraFine monitor has even...

    @XoR_: Thank you. Some things are clearer now. I hear that a USB-C to HDMI 2.1 adapter allows you to use 4k 120Hz and 10bit, it only lacks VRR. Unfortunate.

    I have an RTX2080 with only DisplayPort 1.4 connectors. I'd need an DP 1.4 to HDMI 2.1 adapter cable. Will it work without issues, so I get the 4k 120Hz? Can you recommend a good one that is 3 Meters long (~10 feet)? My current 3 Meters DP 1.4 is from Club3D. The monitor weights about 15kg (~33...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Same. Also I don't like to look at a night sky, then slowly pan the view and most of the smaller stars just fade away. As well the overshoot. Balanced and Speed both have their advantages, but also disadvantages, but nothing is ever right. The panel has good contrast and deep blacks, but the...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    So I take it you would choose the C1 then? I'd need an adapter or new cable, any suggestions? The size is a shame. Could wait for LG's 43" OLED next year, but it will come at an unaffordable price anyway and you'd need to wait double time for it to drop.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    If you could buy an LG C1 for the same price, what would speak against it, or for the FV43U? Talking about gaming and movies only, no general desktop use.

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    I decided not to keep the M32U. Good monitor, but I can no longer accept gaming and watching movies at a 1000:1 contrast ratio. As if like there is an oily film on the panel. Other than that, for general use and competitive gaming an excellent monitor.

    Can you tell what distance to the screen you must have at least to not see any kind of image alteration (losing of contrast, fading of colours) when sitting dead center in front of it and looking at the corners?

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    I mean the IPS on my LG (32UD-99). Rtings noted in their review the monitor to have the best contrast from all IPS they have tested so far. Somehow LG made an IPS panel with better blacks than any other and I wonder why it's not a thing with IPS panels and nobody talks about it. It's not as good...

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    I used the M32U for some days now. I really like it, but one thing bothers me. The black on the panel is too bright. I played some bit of Alien Isolation and had my LG IPS at the side and the Gigabyte is so much smoother with 144Hz, such a great experience, but the game has many dark areas and...

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    I tried several games and mostly I get lower Hz. Sometimes 60-70, Doom'16 only 100, others 80. Only an old game got me close to 144Hz. If that is the norm, I wonder if 144Hz is even worth it, if it will not be actually reached most of the time. I run RTX 2080 and AMD 3700X.

    Those having tried the PG32UQ, how is the black with the panel? There is no point of reference, but does it feel acceptable for use in a slightly darker room? If possible, how it compares with the FI32U?

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    Unfortunately the poor black and IPS glow on the M32U makes my LG IPS almost feel like OLED. It's like looking films with a layer of fog over the screen. Thinking about returning the unit and perhaps wait for the MSI Optix MPG321UR-QD, but that one is going to be majorly overpriced. Been using...

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    @VistaVick2 & Freekill: Not an issue with the cables or HDR, the monitor has simply horrendous stock calibration. Incredible to put that on the user. My setting right now is 88, 87, 100. That removes the yellow tint completely for me with the white colour looking very clean and neutral and...

    I got the M32U today. I have a problem with the colour. It looks like 6000k out the box, very yellow, and in the settings there is no way to adjust the temperature to 6500k. There are only RGB values and I tweaked it to look close to my LG, but there is still this yellow tint. Colours looks...

    Don't make me sad like this. :( 32UD99 has a good panel. Great colours, surprisingly good black and I was astonished to find as good as no light bleed. Perhaps I was lucky with the "lottery" with it. Unfortunately I was not lucky that this panel has high chance of malfunction (bright...

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    How is the IPS glow on the M32U? I hear people say that it is always an issue with IPS, but I used a Dell U2711 for about 9 years and didn't know anything about it, until I got the LG 32UD99 two years ago. I thought the panel was faulty, it has so much glow around the corners with dark content...

    Cure possible?

    Do you mean goes away over time, or upon changing the setting? It is there regardless of setting or brightness, as if it is a picture. I doubt it will go away, but I will test it. Thanks. Brightness changed to 75% with the changing of colour temp, but it looks about the same as 100%. Higher...
