Not exactly the 48'' but I got the 55'' C9 for desktop usage.
It's very nice. The image quality is something else.
The voice control stuff is actually quite nice as well.
The speakers are mediocre, even compared to my lowly 50EUR microlab Solo 6Cs. So just like a monitor.
4K is quite usable...
With the news of 120hz BFI, these are just no-contest, really. If the NVidia Gsync thing last year didn't tip us off, Especially seeing how LG had the 48'' hooked up to a literal gaming rig at CES, it's pretty telling that they're absolutely aware of who's gonna be getting these.
Keep in mind, they can't satisfy the TV demand yet, either. I'm still not sure if making these TVs so attractive to monitor enthusisiaists is genuinely two markets starting to overlap or them cheekily testing the waters.
I'll make the case for waiting until next year to get that HDMI 2.1 spec, unless you're okay with going OLED, which is a whole debate on it's own..
Otherwise yeah, samsung's VRR sets eliminate input lag almost completely with VRR on and have some cool new goodies like FALD/X-Wide Viewing...
HDMI 2.1 will do 5120x2160@144hz 10 bit HDR going by the numbers
30 ( 10 bit x 3 ) x 2160 x 5120 x 144 = 47775744000 which is 47.7 gigabit which is near the 48gbps limit of the interface.
There is also blanking to account for so it's possible that it will only be 120 at 39gbps.
The LG OLEDs are 2 times cheaper, 3 times by black friday and will have next level image quality compared to this.
The LG Nano Cell TVs are anywhere from 3 to 5 times cheaper and have simillar quality to this.
They all do 4k120 @ 10 bit HDR via HDMI 2.1. There are no HDMI 2.1 GPUs for a couple...
It's a bit big but it's not unimaginable, lots of people run triple monitor setups and those could be even wider.
The real issue with this one is that it's ineptly priced for early adopters that are going to have better options in a couple months.
This except he's also right that CCFL produces more consistent results.
That's cause Edge LED is distributed in strips while CCFL is just a rigid tube, so you can't mount it wrong and it doesn't react badly to pressure.
The only place where this doesn't happen is where there's an A-TW...
Too much. The 88Z9? Possibly 10K.
The 65 from potentially next year? More affordable. Still probably ~3K.
55'' will be anywhere from ~1100€ to ~ 950€ by november. Last year, june, it was 1300€ for the B7 vs 1600€ for the B8.
B8 is currently 1050€.
If you have a dark theme available to you, thats' going to help as it will stop any degredation in those areas.
White is also a low-risk color, since the panel is RGBW and has a seperate subpixel for it.
really, red and to a lesser extene blue are problematic, however, that being said ,this...
With how many dark mode apps are available now, oled is especially compelling.
Almost every utility i use nowadays has a dark mode or atleast customizable color schemes.
The eye relief in the dark will be great.
I know I absolutely love my notes screen, and i definitely want to extend the...
a) 2019/2018 4k 49 inch realeases ,mostly. SK8000 & up.
b) it's pretty much the standard for 24 inchers, but i guess personal preferences counts here.
c) since last year input lag isn't really a problem, overall image quality is far superior to what monitors have too. Only real potential...
This isn't lag. It's response times.
And it's higher than the refresh rate. ( 1000/14 = ~71.5 ) Plus that likely means some really gnarly color transition speeds.
Other than early adopting plutocrats who don't really consider this a large expenditure at all, it's a stupid choice.
It's G2G so...
I've gotta ask, at that point, why not just wait a few months and get one of the new TVs and split it in software instead of 4 monitors?
24 at 1080p is equivalent to 48 at 4k in terms of pixel density.
This is flat out wrong, vrr is the official hdmi implementation of adaptive sync.
Sample and hold is only mitigatable via not sampling and holding as much or by doing it more frequently. I e image interpolation for 24p content or BFI
true. This is the other reason to go for oled or FALD.
The amount of brightness can get uncomfortable but having a dark theme work flow works wonders on extreme contrast displays. It will cut the bright spots down.
This year LG OLEDs will do 4k120 or samsung will do 4k120 + AI Upscaling to "8K" (not native, upscaled) for more money than the LG.
Honestly the burn-in might be worth it on my end since last year's LGs are now purchasable for 1150 euro and they were available for 1000 on black friday, samsung...
