I sent my LG34GK950-F (1440p Ultrawide 144Hz IPS) out for warranty repair on the 6th of March. Was supposed to be 10 business days max. Now I get an e-mail on the 26th saying because of the virus, they're sending it to another location for repair, another 2-3 weeks minimum. So I'm looking at a minimum 6 week turnaround now.

Stuck on my old HP ZR2440w. Not worth a pic. :(

Looks cool, but that's a scary setup, man. Hope you don't live in an earthquake zone or have lots of little kids and/or pets running around. Any sudden shifting of those glass tables could send your beautiful 4K TVs straight to the floor.

Just the 3 of us here -- me, myself, and I. :)

Ya I dont let friends bring kids over.

Earthquakes can happen anywhere - had a few rumbles in the area last week - even a 4.something.

I'm sure he only playing on one of them. Hell the two 49"rs aren't even the same model. You can tell by the difference in lag.
Actually they're 38", and the panels are basically the same.
I do play on the 175 hz 3840x1600 panel since using all the screens at 60hz will make you vomit quickly.

And then there are the bezels... Yes, I hate the bezels, but they are the thinnest I could find.

I just flip the LED mode to single monitor for games, and quad LED mode for all 4 when im not gaming.

Update from my last post:
https://hardforum.com/threads/show-your-lcd-s-setups.862341/page-591#post-1044437135

Wound up moving to a powered standing/sitting desk, and added 280 independently controlled LEDs (WS2812s) on the back running at 60 FPS (supporting single monitor for games, or all 4 monitors for everything).

Could you provide us with what monitor stand(s)/mounts that you are using by chance? I love this setup!

Thanks much,

What do you need 144hz for at work?

Edit: that probably came out more aggressive than intended just legitimately wondering what use case you have or if its just a visual preference for the user.

We do a lot of cad stuff, and it looks nicer when you're rotating a drawing smoothly.

Here is my latest setup:

NewLCD.jpg


Went on something of an LCD shopping spree. Tested a bunch of monitors (and sold the ones I didn't like).

Narrowed it down to an LG 34" UWQHD (34GN850-B) as my main monitor, an MSI 24" FHD (G24C4) for the top left and an ASUS 28" UHD (VG289Q) for the right.

Got my favorite movies, Ghost in the Shell and The Matrix running on loop on the top monitors. And, of course, some anime figures to keep me company in these trying times.

Bias lighting was a $15 kit on Amazon. Unfortunately does not sync with screen, but I can set it to different solid colors on the phone app.

How is your OLED experience so far? With the limited research I've done so far I would be concerned about "burn-in" if I went the OLED route.
It's been wonderful so far. I've kept the screen between 0-30 OLED light since I got it so as to try and stave off burn-in. I've watched a few movies and played a few games in HDR with the brightness cranked, and let me tell you... the TV is jaw-droppingly gorgeous with the right content. There's a reason so many people say that it's very hard to use LCD after using OLED; it's just beautiful.

I'll try and keep ya'll updated as time goes on.
