    How much CRT do i need?

    Should use 1366x1024 if you want the right aspect ratio for your monitor. 1280x1024 is 5:4 and was aimed at LCDs

    Sunix DPU 300 or the Icybox and Delock clones

    How much CRT do i need?

    Yeah, from browsing r/CRTgaming on reddit, I can tell that people that ask for prices on stuff like the FW900 aren't actually very serious about getting a FW900, otherwise they would have done more research and realized there is no reliable price for a FW900.

    How much CRT do i need?

    19" and 22" are fine. A good 19" will do a nice 1440x1080 at 80-90hz on the desktop, up to 2400x1800 at 60hz for games. A good 22" can do 1600x1200 at 80-100hz on the desktop, and up to 2880x2160p at 60hz for games Those desktop resolutions at or above 80hz are fine for working and browsing...

    LG 48GQ900 OLED monitor - text clarity?

    It uses the same panel as every other 48" OLED (CX, C1, C2, FO48U, Asus's one, etc.). So whatever is true for those, is also true for the 48GQ900

    LG UltraGear OLED 45GR95QE-B

    I wonder if the Xeneon Flex has a gimped HDMI 2.1 port like the Gigabyte and LG 48" 16:9 monitors. Maybe there is some incompatibility with the signal wants and the signal the games are sending. Maybe try displayport? Or changing any HDMI-related options in the menu?

    LG UltraGear OLED 45GR95QE-B

    You're running your desktop at 100% brightness? I guess you wanna roll the dice on burn in. HDR is the only time I want 100% brightness

    Samsung 50" Micro LED in 2023?

    Appears so. But then again, I imagine early OLEDs from the late 00's and early 10's were probably also RGB subpixels. Who knows what form micro-led will take once it reaches the mass market.

    Samsung 50" Micro LED in 2023?

    So are the current microleds RGB LED subpixels or white/blue LED with color filter subpixels?

    LG 2023 OLED TVs

    And it's one of the last to support BFI at 100hz and 120hz. Who knows how long it will be till we see that again.

    LG 2023 OLED TVs

    yeah, gonna be a while before we see those brighter panels trickle down to cheaper models. 1800 nits is really good though. Theoretically we're getting close to where we could have decent BFI + HDR, if LG doesn't completely abandon BFI in the future.

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    Don't know about that but did you try both the HDMI and DP inputs?

    Reducing refresh rate below 50hz

    Oh, in that case, he should use the highest multiple he can do, like 100hz, then enable vsync+frame rate cap to reduce input lag. Or use one of the low-lag vsync options like Scanline Sync (RTSS) or Latent Sync (Special K)

    Reducing refresh rate below 50hz

    Just turn on Freesync/Gsync then cap the frame rate.

    The Gigabyte Aorus FO48U might be the only OLED monitor with BFI, and even then, it's only 120hz, not even 60hz is supported. I'm going to be forced to use my CRTs for a LONG time

    27" 240hz OLED Monitor!!! (but there's a catch...)

    I feel like you should a bring a CRT with you whenever you go so you can remind them what good motion resolution looks like. Because I imagine, like most of the population, these guys haven't seen a CRT monitor in person in 15 years.

    MultiSync FP1350X 22" CRT accepts both analog and digital signals

    Then you should have been getting a purple tint on the desktop too. Maybe you just weren't noticing it as strongly there for whatever reason. Using grayscale tests like this will make sure you don't have any off-hues in the image: http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gradient.php

    MultiSync FP1350X 22" CRT accepts both analog and digital signals

    This the wrong way to go about it if I understand you correctly. You said you only got the purple tint in games, not on the desktop? That clearly points to a software problem, not a monitor problem. Because your monitor has no way to tell whether you playing a video game or doing stuff on the...

    I just think they go bad for other reasons than the horizontal frequency being too high. Especially when just playing games

    I’ve been using my LaCie for almost 10 years at high refresh rate for games Like I said the monitor wouldn’t let you run high refresh rates if it was bad for the monitor

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

    Guys, this is dumb. A deflection circuit isn't like a car's engine. The monitor wouldn't allow you to run 800x600 160hz if it wasn't safe. I've been running my LaCie at crazy shit like 1920x1440p 90hz and 2880x2160p 60hz, 1024x768p 160hz, for years. Don't be afraid to take full advantage of...

    Best giant UHD HDR monitor like AORUS FO48U but without burn-in issues?

    That's like... no hours. I'd be careful about running the desktop in HDR. That's really pushing it. Just save HDR for movies and games

    Best giant UHD HDR monitor like AORUS FO48U but without burn-in issues?

    It has the same panel as the LG CX and C1. Not sure how it would be any more or less likely to burn in

    Best giant UHD HDR monitor like AORUS FO48U but without burn-in issues?

    It has a pixel refresh cycle just like all the other OLEDs. It's fine. Unless you plan on running the desktop at close to 100% brightness while you work. But if that's the case, no OLED will be safe

    MSi 49" Ultrawide 240Hz QD-OLED

    Guys, stop it with these these fucking comments every time a new monitor is announced Not every monitor made by every manufacturer is for you. Sometimes LG or Samsung will make a monitor you want, most of the time they won't Some people like super duper ultra wide monitors. So they might like...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DWF 34″ QD-OLED 165Hz FreeSync Premium Pro (3440 x 1440)

    I imagine they're going to fix the VRR issue, would be incredibly dumb if they didn't. An R9 380x I put in my dad's PC supports VRR at 1440p on his Samsung TV. But I guess we'll see, Sony might take a long time to fix it unfortunately But the PS5 does downscale higher res games to 1440p, it...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Try adding 4:2:0 support in CRU. One of the extension boxes has a tickbox for it. Don't know if it will work.

    I keep ASBL on because random games and other apps will disable the screensaver in Windows, so it's nice fallback

    The 4K CRT Monitor from 2005 - Siemens SMM21201P MED

    The only game I've played where the CRT phosphor trails were distracting was Alien Isolation. Lots of solitary LED lights in dark rooms

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    So you think running my desktop at 50 brightness with BFI is wearing it down way faster than 27 without BFI? Percetpually I'm seeing roughly equal brightness between the two (on my FO48U). I think brightness on my monitors is basically the same setting as "OLED backlight" on the TVs
  34. E

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    It's not sustained brightness though. It would be 1-2ms of intense brightness with 14-15ms of darkness, for 60hz.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    And I really do think they could allow the pixels to go 2x or 4x brighter in BFI mode to support HDR, since they wouldn't heat up like they do in sample and hold mode. Only problem is that I don't think LGD is interested in doing the R&D necessary to support that

    Also on the subject of the HDR calibration tool question for you LG users: In the black test, when the slider is near zero but quite zero, do you guys get some instability in the black level? Like the brightness will drop or rise a half second after you click?

    Torn AW3423DW or LG C2 42 or Asus ROG OLED

    At a point, yeah. 13" is hard to make "big enough" But small screen can still be very immersive, just by sitting closer. This is what I've always done with my 21" Diamondtron CRT, even when playing 16:9 letterboxed games from console. My face is usually about a foot and a half away. I've...

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    Yeah, mine does it when switching refresh rate or input. It's kind of like a "pop". I assume it's the power supply A little bit scary.
