As a B6 owner who's used it as primarily a PC monitor for about 3 years now:Hey all, apologies if this has already been discussed in the thread, but can anyone who has successfully used LG OLEDs as PC displays post the settings / best practices they put to use? (ie, contrast, brightness, OLED light, etc.). Also, is it best practice to use the "PC Input" for the HDMI port being used? I've seen mixed opinions on this.
I have a 48CX arriving either tomorrow or Monday from B&H and am preparing my desktop to use it as a primary display with flanking 27" 4K LG IPS displays in portrait. I am using buttery taskbar, PowerToys (for FancyZones and PowerToys Run), black desktop, hidden desktop icons, and a blank screensaver on 1 minute timer. This will be running off a 2080Ti (3xxx when they are released).
One last thing: is it best practice to turn off "put display to sleep after XX minutes" for the OLED and just turn it off at the end of the day? From what I've read this can be good because because you're more likely to use the display for 4+ hours at a time, which then forces a compensation cycle when powered off... Is this true/effective?
Thanks for the advice!
Keep the OLED light to about 30-40; that's what will cause most burn-in issues. [Remember that HDR and SDR are separate picture modes and need this setting set for each.]
Have a low monitor turn-off/screensaver time. I have mine set to 15 minutes; better safe then sorry.
For the love of god, minimize the Windows taskbar. This is the step I missed, and combined with an OLED light set to 80 and 2.5 years, resulted in the taskbar starting to burn in. [I play a lot of games in a fullscreen-window that keeps the taskbar up; that's what screwed me]
Aside from that, get in the habit of turning off the set when not in use.
I've played a lot of games with static elements for hours at a time without issue; it's really long-term wear you need to worry about. As long as you keep the OLED light to about 40 and aren't constantly showing the same elements (like my Taskbar :/) you should be fine.
