    No, it doesn't. WTF? What are you talking about? This is a simple matter of mathematics, there's no "having it in front of you" involved. 0.75x works great for 65" - it's 48.75, it works great for 60" at 45", it works great for 27" at 20.25". +/- 3-4 inches each way is understandable(and...

    You haven't mentioned the option of turning font smoothing completely off. I'm not sure if you can still do this in Win10 without a registry hack though, but Google probably knows. I don't care to dig into it at this point.

    Not sure what you're talking about, 36" is the ITU recommended viewing distance for a 48" 16:9 display(1.5x height or 0.75x diagonal) -- if you think it's way too big chances are you like your screens further away than is best, which is fine if that's your preference, but it's not really useful...

    I don't have any problems with the text rendering on my 65" C9, so I expect none with the CX. However, I also don't intend to use it any closer than 36" and scaling will likely be set to at least 125% if not 150%, I'll have to test that out.

    B9 and C9 have very different stands with very different weights. The C9 stand is very heavy.

    LG 48CX

    What are you talking about? The stand for the 65" C9 weighs ~17lbs and the second piece weighs ~2.2lbs. According to the LG page, the difference is 19.1lbs. That's exactly correct. (no I'm not weighing my TV, but I'm 100% certain the 55lb number on the LG page is correct.)

    OLED typically debuts at MSRP, which was $2500 for the 55" C9, and then quickly drops by ~10-15% per month until it hits ~60% of MSRP in mid-summer, where it stays until Nov/Dec deals, that usually knock an additional 10-20% off. So $2000 -> $1200 w/ 'extreme deals' at $999 would be my guess...

    360hz Asus Rog Swift

    Dual layer LCDs have been shown at like the past 3 CESes, syncing two LCDs and maintaining good input latency and response times especially at the level required for gaming, which is much tighter timings than that required for TVs, seems to be too challenging for manufacturers so far. Don't...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    All you gotta do is google and you'll see how often people report issues. Lots of reports of it still being broken since that alleged fix in many games. It's just a janky feature in general. There were a lot of problems with it when it was being introduced as well, they're slowly tapering off so...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    Windowed mode has been a total mess on PC with actual g-sync module monitors, anyways. It constantly breaks and gets fixed, and doesn't always work in all games.

    Sweet Baby Jeebus Alienware 55" 4k120 OLED Displayport

    You should specify what kind of dimming you're seeing; ABSL or ABL. Shouldn't be able to hit ABL unless your brightness preferences are really high(>150 nits). I would believe the AW55 has less ABL though, as its HDR brightness capability is almost completely removed, at 1/4 or less than that...

    Sweet Baby Jeebus Alienware 55" 4k120 OLED Displayport

    No OLEDs are capable of extreme brightness anyways, they top out at 800 nits which is frankly no big deal. The eye-searing doesn't really happen until a few thousand nits. And yeah, I've stared into plenty of HDR sunrises and lightning on my C9. It's definitely a bit of a surprise sometimes, but...

    LG 48CX

    There's no evidence that gsync compatible certification has raised the price of any freesync monitor(like all the good ones are certified at this point, too) so I'm not sure why it would in this case.

    LG 48CX

    I use my computer for all purposes, not just one or two, and I have no plans to keep a secondary LCD after I get a 48CX. There should be no reason to. I may or may not turn off ABSL, depends on how noticeable it turns out to be. I can't see any legitimate reason not to use an OLED for work...

    LG 48CX

    I don't really get it. Did you read the thread? We're talking about desktop use, not TV viewing or gaming. And ABSL and ABL are two separate features that don't really interact. It's easy to imagine ABSL getting annoying in desktop use when you have static windows on the screen for a long time...

    LG 48CX

    You CAN turn ABSL(slow dimming on 'static' pixels) off in the service menu. For that one, definitely may cause increased risk of burn-in but that's about it.

    LG 48CX

    Yeah, I mean, it's possible they will offer some configuration of ABL for SDR modes. If you calibrate the display at 100 or 120 nits(which are the usual standards for darkened room viewing) ABL should never trigger. But I also will say that the way ABL was applied on older OLEDs was faster and...

    LG 48CX

    You understand that's impossible, right? The whole TV would probably catch on fire if you turned ABL off and then sent it a signal that it should display a full white screen at 800 nits. Assuming you didn't immediately blow the power supply, which you would. C9 ABL is @ 151 nits full screen...

    LG 48CX

    They demonstrated a prototype chip, not even an actual product, for mfgs to even start prototyping actual adapters the chip would need to be finished and commercially available. So there may still be products coming eventually, but yeah, it was never going to be released very quickly.

    LG 48CX

    I dunno I think this varies based on what you're playing. For example if I'm playing an FPS with no HDR support(OW, f ex), I might turn BFI on and play at 1080p integer upscaled to 4K if I need to peg 120fps. That should be a better experience than anything short of a CRT. And some FPSes(CSGO...

    LG 48CX

    This wall mount is one of the wider range of motion ones I've seen. There are also some heavy duty monitor arms that would work, but as mentioned above you will need a 100 x 100 -> 300 x 200 adapter set or plate of some kind. The 55C9 is 41.7lbs without the stand, so I expect the 48" to be a...

    LG 48CX

    If you are mounting your 48CX behind your desk, it creates plenty of desk space for a 4K 27" or 32" monitor on a desk arm for spreadsheeting if you're not happy with the text clarity or terrified of burn-in also. And you can simply move it out of the way when you're not using it. It's actually...

    ClearType should always be off on any display that isn't standard RGB or BGR(if set accordingly). I turned it off when I tried my 65C9 connected to a PC. I also don't think it is a reasonable expectation to use these displays at distances and with scaling such that it creates single-pixel-width...

    LG 48CX

    The subpixel structure may have some effect, yeah, but subpixel structure stops mattering at high enough PPI. You can easily see this effect in phones: People complained a lot about the PenTile layout on Samsung phones, but nobody talks about it anymore, even though they still use it. That's...
  27. S

    LG 48CX

    Fair enough, but yeah this isn't surprising. 55" 4K PPI is only 80, lower than most basic monitors, and when you're sitting that close the pixels will be quite large.
  28. S

    LG 48CX

    Head turning to see any part of a screen automatically means you're too close, imo. There's a reason every authority on screen viewing distance avoids this. The ITU recommended viewing distance for 55" would be about 41". If you like it that way, that's totally fine -- I'm not telling you to...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    Lets be real, any time Asus or Acer say a monitor will be out at X time we're all adding 1-2 years to that date in our heads anyways. I will frankly be impressed/surprised if they get this thing out in 2020 AT ALL and it doesn't become another joke like the PG27UQ/PG35VQ. Reminder that there...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    This logic is silly, though, the 3080TI will have many benefits other than HDMI 2.1. I cannot imagine anyone who bought a 2080TI who wants to game at 4K _not_ buying a 3080TI for the increased performance alone. Also technically there may be adapters, but I haven't heard any news of that chip...

    LG 48CX

    Yeah, and I believe that they have increased the red subpixel size since the rtings test, which used 2017 panels. So in fact, the panels we are all buying have gone through multiple incremental improvements, and the rtings test is probably much worse than what a 2019 or 2020 panel experiences...

    LG 48CX

    LG subpixels are all actually white LEDs, 3 of them just have color filters on them. The rtings test showed pretty clearly that red burns in the fastest on LG OLEDs.

    I own a C9. A good HDR film/show is a much better visual experience than SDR, and that's running the display in Cinema mode in a dark room, which is the lowest APL mode for HDR but also the best contrast.

    Sweet Baby Jeebus Alienware 55" 4k120 OLED Displayport

    The thing you don't seem to understand is that what you keep calling "unrealistic" is in fact the contrast and the dynamic range you see in the actual real world. It seems very strange to vehemently insist that 6 stops of dynamic range and sRGB are all that exist in the world, as any...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    Yeah, but burn-in isn't some binary thing. It's really just a type of added cost. If a 65" microLED, being EXTREMELY optimistic, can be brought down to $5000 within the next 5 years, and a similar OLED is $500, the fact that the OLED has burn-in risk won't matter to anybody. I'm sure Samsung...

    360hz Asus Rog Swift

    I don't normally like to cite Linus, but he did a pretty good test of high refresh and it turns out 240hz provides a significant performance increase over 144hz, especially for casual gamers, so more refresh rate can't hurt. Would this still be the case on non-sample-and-hold displays? Who...

    You keep posting and you sound more and more like you don't know what you're talking about with every single post. There is no such thing as "torch mode" for HDR because HDR uses the full brightness capability of the display to begin with. It needs to do this because REAL LIFE IS NOT LIMITED TO...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    Microled is only barely doable at the prototype level for 4K @ 75" and can't go any higher ppi than that, and even if it was, $4K isn't expensive. If it were physically possible to manufacture, which it isn't, a microLED monitor would be more like $40K. Microled is at least 3-5 years away for...
