  1. FWIW, I have the 27", and the curve doesn't bother me.
  2. Look, don't victim blame the pervert who put that thing on. Blame the perverts who hacked him. Or the slacker dev team who essentially opened all the ports (ironically) and set the password to "password".
  3. Gaming in general SHOULD be fine. I wouldn't sweat it. Plus like @Biomecanoidsaid, you can use a VPN or even a wifi hotspot or your phone.
  4. Yearly burn-in coincides with yearly new model releases... just sayin. Get a fourth job, everyone.
  5. Also, since I'm probably your parents' age, I'll throw in a "you should be studying not gaming" admonition.
  6. Yeah, also napster or whatever you kids are using these days. That's a different kind of peer to peer that they're definitely going to block. Nothing to do with gaming.
  7. I guess I meant the kind of p2p they are likely to and could easily block. My assumption is that they're blocking lan traffic between devices in order to stop spreading malware. So any game where you and your roommate are connecting together and not online would not work, but Mortal Kombat vs your friend online would work unless they really go out of their way.
  8. Peer to peer means all players must be connected to the same private network, like all plugged into the same network switch. I don't know of any that require it on the PC side. I didn't think about Switch games... do those do local lan multiplayer?
  9. Can you clarify what you mean? Do you mean games that require a p2p network to even run, or games that only have peer to peer multiplayer? Honestly, I don't think there are many/any in the first category. I haven't seen a local lan only multiplayer game in over a decade, either. I don't mean to insult you, but are you sure you know what peer to peer means in this context? That's like lan party with no internet access required.
  10. Increased brightness sounds good, but also like it will exacerbate my burn-in nervosa. I ran my CX at around 40-45% for peace of mind (ironically, I returned it because of some bad pixels rather than any burn-in). Maybe LG should just ship some valium with their OLEDs.
  11. Why not the G7 27”? It won’t match the 4k’s PPI, but it’s better than the 32” in that respect.
  12. I’ve had an LG CX 48 for a few months. This is actually my second one. The first one started out great, but within a week developed dead pixels. Started with one, a week after that it was 4. I replaced that with this new one, and now this one has a dead pixel... However, I never had any burn-in issues, even with hundreds of hours of New World alpha (which may or may not have a lot of static UI elements. I can’t say. NDA ), Baldur’s Gate 3, and Cities: Skylines. Still, based on my personal experience, I’d stay away from this one. It’s a shame because it does look amazin
  13. So that's weird. Do you have other windows machines on your network? Do they have the same issue? Do you have anything running at startup that might be trying to access network resources on that box? Plex media server, something like that? A couple of things you can try: Add a hosts file entry for that server. That will eliminate the DNS server as the issue. If that works, then look into your DNS a bit. How to Edit Your Hosts File on Windows, Mac, or Linux (howtogeek.com) When it's NOT working, try this: from a command prompt,
