Interestingly it says VRR is 48-120 Hz but I expect this is just a crappy copy paste in the manual and it works fine at 138 Hz too.
For PbP there is no option to select between horizontal vs vertical split so I assume it's just 2x 1920x2160.
3840x1600 is also listed as stock supported resolution so that's good.
I kind of like the remote in its minimalism. I don't particularly care for the C9/CX remote with lots of buttons that have no use and the scroll wheel that doubles as ok button is awkward.
As an overall package I don't have huge complaints about this if its price is not going to be totally out of line vs the LG C2 42".
VRR does work at 138hz on the PG42UQ. I think Nvidia chose not to certify it's "Gsync Compatibility" beyond the factory 120hz.
Neither have I with any monitor that has some form of refresh rate OC. I am hearing lots of reports of people having flicker/blanking issues with the LG 48" OLED monitor at 138hz so it may be the case here too although Asus has already provided like 4 firmware updates for the PG48UQ with the first available for the PG42UQ bringing it to parity.Perhaps they chose not to certify it since they cannot guarantee that it will work flawlessly at 138Hz vs 120Hz. Might have some flickering or blanking out etc. once you go beyond 120Hz. Although I'm sure the vast majority of users will have no issues, personally I never had any issues with "OC refresh rates" on monitors ever since the Dell S2417DG allowed OC from 144Hz to 165Hz back in 2016.
I am only interested in knowing any study on how many yr. this OC cut down on the lifespan on an Asus. So far, I really don't see any benefit that human eyes can tell138Hz is OC, they state what works according to actual specs.
"Gsync compatibility" is not tied to any refresh.
I wouldn't put the 48" on a desk at all. I have a 80 cm deep desk and tried the CX 48" mounted on a monitor arm (using a VESA 100x100 to 300x300 adapter plate). It didn't work that well so I bought a floor stand that puts it at 1m viewing distance. That worked well for me. The 42" might be borderline acceptable on a monitor arm with a deep desk.out of interest, how much empty space do you guys have left on your desk, that it won't fit a 48"? and for that matter, what size is your desk? My one is 92" x 48"
Exactly, that's my question. I'll buy the Asus, for the warranty and the brand name. It should be 3 yr. warranty in North America. That's what I'm aiming at. But since the product is not really out, I have to wait to read up on the ABL problem. If this is 1 yr. warranty, then I'll wait for someone else like Viewsonic
They're comparing it to the QD OLED.
The input lag on my CX 48" is already low enough that I could never notice it in use as long as game mode is used. So that would not be a good reason to upgrade.That's the main thing, imho, 5.5 times lower than LG C2 42. 1ms total input lag is just crazy fast. Definitely, I'd upgrade.
That’s not the situation here in the UK. The Asus is £1399 and the C2 easily had for £950 and dropping. We are facing a large premium and that is a big consideration for me, though I prefer the Asus if all other things were equal.$1400 isn't too bad. I'm still deciding if matte is going to make a huge difference vs glossy. I'd like to see reviews with side by side comparison with the C2. But it looks like it's worth the extra ~$150 (over c2) for the cooling system, increased brightness, refresh rate.
