yeah all they have to do is slap a "pro" on it and suddenly that 27 in will probably be $2000+ (which would actually be a "good deal" in that it is half the cost of the 21 inch asus pro pq22uc oled monitor)

And get away with 60Hz because it is such a "pro" refresh rate, even though general office use would greatly benefit from going 90Hz+.

Come on - that is bullcrap. There is a big market for these monitors in video editing. Sony has very expensive units that are normally used. If these monitors sell for 6K and have the same fidelity and longevity as the sony monitors it will be a HUGE savings for the consumers. Having said that I would like (and am hopeful) that sooner than later we will see 27 inch units for gaming.

Btw phones oled screens seem to do pretty well with regards to longevity. I know the early phones would burn in after a year but I kept my note 4 for 4 1/2 years and it had minimal or pretty much no burn in. Of course I didn't keep the display on for 8 hours a day 7 days a week for 4 years but ... at least it was better than the first couple of iterations ;)

Phone OLEDs are not on for hours and hours most of the time and even when they are you are probably watching a movie or something on it. Not even close to desktop use.

Isn't there going to be a 32" version as well? 27" and 4k resolution is a bit overkill.
Yes. Both monitors have the same specs - they are both targeted towards video editing with appropriate refresh rate and colour gammet for such. They are competing against the much (5 digit) more expensive sony monitors.

Less than expected but not worth it for most. Let's hope in a few years they can shave a grand off that price and add some features that make it gaming compatible like 120+ Hz, low input lag and so on.
I figured it would be over $2000 but less than the 21inch $4000 asus oled. Generally technology advances, prices go down, but feels like it has been a decade of waiting for oled to become mainstream, like everyone seemingly predicted back in the day. My guess is the 32 inch will be around $3500, which compared to the 21 inch oled is progress in some ways. People want their small (compared to tv-size) OLED monitors, but every monitor marketed as "pro" is always going to be a lot more expensive. Maybe in 5+ years we'll see $500 27 inch non-pro oled monitors for the rest of us. If that 42 inch oled tv comes out this year, I'm going to seriously consider it. I didn't have the desk space for the 48 inch one, maybe I could make 42 work though

If it was less than $2k, I would be in. I think the OLED is still a niche product in this space. Hoping that will change soon.

If that does not include a warranty against burn in, they can forget it.

Nothing against OLED but why would you use it as the PC monitor where you tends to have a lot static windows at the same location all the time. You're just asking for burn ins.

I think these are supposed to be for professional photo or video editors. They're used to the limitations and paying 10s of thousands of dollars for a single mastering monitor.

LG's OLED tvs can be used carelessly for a few years before they have any burn in problems and if you're careful with them they'll be good for a lot longer without any problems. But I doubt these monitors are nearly as resilient. They aren't going to have the same kind of burn in prevention measures as a TV, and use a different OLED panel tech.

I have have two OLED PVMs primarily for desktop use. They are amazing. I don’t care about the risk of burn in. If it ever happened and it bothered me I’d just buy new ones. Monitors are disposable goods.

My mentality as well, better to have state of the art IQ and some risk, than dogshit IQ that lasts. It shits the bed, get another one.

These LG OLEDs are that much better than the top gaming monitors?

Apart of me wants to sell both my monitors and buy a 48" OLED

I've been using the Dell OLED monitor (and multi OLED TVs.. laptops and phones) and have not burn in. Sure, people can be dummies.. but i've not stressed it and nor should others.

I'm a little bummed that there isn't a gaming version yet. Maybe LG will shrink down their screens a bit smaller (this LG monitor doesn't use a LG screen.)
I might take a look at mini-LED gaming monitors.. maybe.. i do love me some oled.

They dragged their feet, but better late than never. Prices probably wont be pretty though considering what they charge for nano IPS.
