    Looks very clean and crisp on desktop, and was a treat to see this morning. Nice job-

    LG 48CX

    AFAIK, 55" / 65" / 77" 4K panels have their own separate lines apart from the 88" 8K line (the latter of which is relatively new). There's two scenarios: either 48" 4K has its own production line, or 48" 4K is cut from the 88" 8K line. I don't believe it's the former, although I could be wrong...

    Golden oldie - modern monitor with svideo, component and PIP?

    Not sure what size or resolution you're looking for, but you're better off getting a 24-30" LCD TV. Most are 720p, but some models do come in 1080p. I was looking for a display solution back in the fall time for my retro gaming station, so I can confirm that TVs in this size range still come...

    That stand's footprint is so unnecessarily large, given the panel size.

    That's interesting, I wonder if that'll have an improved effect on the color volume. IIRC, the 2019 OLEDs stood at around 85% DCI-P3 color volume, and a gamut around 96-97%.

    LG 48CX

    I would be surprised if LG lists the 48CX that low. Based on LG’s typical deep sale prices, especially around the holidays, I would peg the price around $1199-$1299 a year from now. Currently, the 55C9 is going for $1499, and the 65C9 at $2099. There definitely will not be a $600 difference...

    It would also seem to have the added side effect of further mitigating (if not completely eliminating?) the chance for image-retention and burn-in. This looks like a home run for LG. Can't believe this didn't gain more press coverage.

    Some new information regarding BFI, which it seems will be present in LG's 2020 OLEDs. Via FlatPanelsHD: https://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1579257548 "With its 2020 OLED TVs, Sony will introduce X-Motion Clarity, which is made possible by LG Display's upgrade to a...

    LG's OLEDs are first and foremost TVs, and they market them as such despite having gamer-oriented "features" which are really just part of HDMI 2.1 as well as the overall superior aspects of OLED vs LCD. NVIDIA's proprietary, walled-garden G-Sync basically had a quiet death. That happened when...

    You could do something like an L-shaped corner desk. Your "main" monitor would actually be the smaller one (for web browsing and productivity), in the corner of the L. You could then wall mount the 48" on the long side, and simply re-orient yourself in your chair for gaming or entertainment...

    As the creator of the thread, yes. And well, it's true. It's already been well established and discussed around here that if what you're looking to do is spreadsheet work and word processing, OLED isn't you're best option. Any LCD as a second monitor would suffice, of which there are many cheap...

    If you turn down the OLED Brightness setting (different than the regular brightness setting), you'll rarely see ABL kick into action. I have my C7 set to somewhere between 30-40 and I almost never see ABL and I've owned the TV for over two years. The only times where I've actually noticed it is...

    I am not ashamed to admit that I bought a 25ft HDMI cable just to play RE2 Remake on Steam. Ran it from my PC in my office out to the C7 in my living room, and used my wireless XBox controller. Worth every single penny. Game looks gorgeous on OLED, and that's even with Capcom's botched HDR...

    Although it's not related to the 48CX, I figure since it straddles the line between living room game console and desktop PC use, some here (like myself) might also be interested in audio to go along with it. Well, it seems AVRs with HDMI 2.1 will finally be arriving! I couldn't find a whole...

    I used to own the Dell U2711, the grain from the hard coating on that was intense. It caused me to get a U2713 a couple years later, which I still use to this day, and like you I'm holding out. But at least I got to enjoy 1440p well before it was what all the cool kids use. Once new GPUs with...

    LG 48CX

    I like how they say "won't be cheap" as one of the cons, yet, in relation to all the >$1000 LCD monitors from ASUS, Acer, MSI, etc this will be a comparative bargain. If the 48CX does in fact come in at $1000-$1500 (which is likely, given the historical on-sale price of LG's 55"), everything...

    Every time I read about or experience someone's reaction when they see OLED for the first time, I reminds me of that scene in Avatar. The one where Jake Sully takes a bite of the Pandoran fruit. It's juicy, delicious, and exotic, and his eyes light up with excitement. Same exact reaction.

    LG 48CX

    Fun fact: In addition to making adjustments to the WRGB pixel structure over the generations, LG also increased the size of the red pixels since red is more susceptible to burn in. While it might seem counter-intuitive, increasing the size allows for more light, meaning the pixels don't have to...

    It's pretty telling that of all the gorgeous, enormous, and innovative TV models that LG had on display in their private showroom at CES, only the 48CX was hooked up to anything meaningful... and it was a PC gaming rig. LG knows exactly who's going to be buying the 48CX, and that's at least...

    You can do 120Hz over HDMI 2.0, you just have to fall back to 8-bit 4:2:0 chroma due to bandwidth limitations, and the display needs to support Y′CbCr. By definition, all TVs support Y′CbCr 8-bit 4:2:0 since that is the bit depth that most content (even Blu rays) are delivered in. [This next...

    That distance is actually pretty spot on. I was unsure, since I don’t own a 48” anything. But I do have a 55” OLED, so I got out the measuring tape, lined myself up and imagined something around 48”, and the tape wound up right around 36” that satisfied my view. I know for 40-43” that 30”...

    Tom Cruise says, turn off frame interpolation

    The industry should just transition to 30fps. At least for the US market or markets that utilize 60Hz / 120Hz. Adding 6fps wouldn't really change the over all feel, but it would completely eliminate judder, since 30 divides evenly into 60 and 120. Note that Europeans aren't affected, since they...

    Gaming for a couple hours won't do anything. LG's OLED TVs have a few methods by which to mitigate the potential for burn in, both when the TV is on and off. It's an important point that is often not discussed, and is something generally not seen in OLED monitors. And in my opinion, image...

    As revealed by the US FCC and the Korean RRA this week, LG will be releasing the 48" OLED in 2020 as a CX model. Which is interesting, because the C series comes with better picture processing than the B series. Most manufacturers sell their smallest size panels as low-end series or models, so...

    Do any of you prefer 27" 1080p over 24"?

    1440p@32" is equivalent to 1080p@24" for pixel density (91.8ppi), hence the sizes. In my opinion, 1080p@27" is just too low of a pixel density (81.6ppi) for a monitor.

    How about a petition for someone to make a 43" OLED monitor/TV

    What we're witnessing is the convergence of the monitor and TV markets. We knew this would occur eventually, but weren't sure when. But it's happened fast over the last couple of years. Features like 4:4:4 chroma, low lag, high hertz, and expanded color gamut were always the domain of monitors...

    How about a petition for someone to make a 43" OLED monitor/TV

    43” 4K OLED would be amazing, especially for people who value maximum desktop real estate instead of scaling. And math dictates that 46” 4K is the ideal maximum for 4K in a Windows desktop environment. I’m not so sure if demand has much influence in this case. After all, it wasn’t that long...

    Looking for LCD monitor or LCD TV for retro gaming

    It’s imperceptible. Any lag generated from the OSSC is non-existent, and input lag from the Dell U2415 was measured to be low. It was reviewed by TFT Central back in 2014, and it earned a Class 1 for Lag (good for gaming). https://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2415.htm I should say that...

    Looking for LCD monitor or LCD TV for retro gaming

    I got mine through VideoGamePerfection. They’re based in Ireland. I would highly recommend getting the remote, the remote overlay (sticker), and the 5V adapter for the OSSC. Makes it easy, and they’re just a few bucks on top. One thing you’ll need (if you don’t have one) is a micro SD card...

    Looking for LCD monitor or LCD TV for retro gaming

    Looks pretty darn good to me. LCD and CRT each have their own strengths though. The LCD gives it a super sharp picture, and the scart cable provides full RGB, so it’s nice and colorful. Of course, the benefit of OSSC is being able to reproduce scan lines with almost zero lag. I found that...

    Looking for LCD monitor or LCD TV for retro gaming

    I received the OSSC in the mail today. It has a lot of settings — I have no idea what half them do, and will have to read up more. The signal was pretty unstable at first using 5x mode, but after playing around it’s mostly good now. It still needs some more tweaking though. One thing’s for...

    What's the best 40"-43" Display (Monitor or TV)?

    I'm interested to see how the 48" OLEDs will look. Works out to around 92 PPI. Certainly better than 55" in terms of PQ, and requires less distance for optimal viewing. If the goal is 4K 120Hz, then the clear winner is HDMI, and it's largely due to LG's aggressive pricing in the TV market. With...

    Questions for C9 OLED guys

    Let me see if I can take a crack at this and clear this up: Only a 1440p panel can display a 1440p resolution natively without scaling and without black bars. This is inherently 1:1. Otherwise, a 4K panel can (keyword "can"; not all 4K TVs do) natively support a 1440p signal through scaling...

Once we have HDMI 2.1 hardware on the GPU side...
