Every other monitor is DEAD to me - LG CX OLED 48"

Any news on pricing and availability in Canada? Or will we have to wait for next year? :(

So whats the type naming for the rest of the world? Is this like the same as OLED48CX6LB but for Europe instead?

In Germany it's called the OLED48CX 8LC

There are also 8LB models.

 

No clue why they're making it so difficult to identify their products.

 

But what I know, is that I need this in 34" or 38" ultrawide.

In case of USB confusion, refer to this sh*t.

  • 05Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 1 (USB 3.0)
  • 10Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2
  • 20Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2x2
  • 40Gb/s - Thunderbolt 3
  • 40Gb/s certified - Thunderbolt 4
  • 40Gb/s - USB 4

"Hell, its about time"

 

Well done gents.

 

I will emphasis the fact that the whole 48gbs vs 40gbs bandwidth 'issue' is entirely pointless as the the panel itself is 10bit, so the ability to accept 12bit input with 48gbs is kinda silly.

 

Also, if ur going to spend this much on a display, BUY A CALIBRATOR !, that way u dont need to worry about color inaccuracies between the gaming profile and other profiles of the DIsplay.

 

Ill also add that any1 who wants to give one of these a shot should understand that some minor changes in your habitual use will be 'ideal' to avoid 'noticeable' pixel degradation (burn-in).

 

For starters dont do what Linus did with his video editing software, that being, dont open it up fullscreen. Continued use liek this will cause the menu bars at the top to always be displayed in the exact same position , which will eventually cause burn in. Instead resize and position it urself, each time u open it, and every couple hours just move it slightly. Do this with all windows, such as internet browsers and other programs.

it sounds like a chore, but i assure u, it becomes second nature, i've been doing ti with my plasma for over 10 years, i dont even realize im doing it most the time.

 

There are other things u should do as well. Try not to have icons on ur desktop, if u need them, then use a program like 'Wallpaper engine' and make them semi transparent, and use an animated wallpaper and/or have a large library of wallpapers that change every few minutes. Then ofc also make sure ur taskbar has auto hide enabled.

You can also enabled a basic black screensaver as well.

 

Beyond that, just make sure u dont leave a game with a higher contrast static HUD/UI on the screen for 6+ hours every day. You can get away with a long gaming session of a single game, even one as vibrant and contrasty as fortnight, but dont do it all the time.

A game like COD:WWII can be played on a OLED for thousands of hours without issue, but try doing the same with a game like FIFA and ull end up with burn in.

 

@James  It would be interesting to see a video testing people at LTT with the CX 48" and other high frequency gaming monitors to see if they prefer the crystal clear 120hz motion of the OLED or the slower response but higher frequency of a 240hz+ gaming Monitor.

I'm of the opinion that a 120hz OLED will provide subjectively better moving image than that of a 240 monitor, even if the 240hz+ monitors 'technically' have the 'smoother' motion.

Was this an LG ad? Because Linus' impressions doesn't make sense. This "monitor" have the exact ppi(91.97) ratio as a 24" 1080p display which is not good.. like I can definitely see the individual pixels, even on my 27" 1440p which is 108.79 ppi. How can Linus say 48" 4K looks better than a 27" 2K when the later has a higher pixel density. I just can't imagine how this is usable given normal eye distance to monitor, the size of the monitor itself and the low pixel density.

NO! It's art, it's colonialism and you'll never get it!

I think Linus has forgotten about burn in, sure he mentioned it but he is also clearly forgetting his wife caused it on one of their TVs at home as well. OLEDs are fine for phones since most people toss them after 2 years and same with TVs so long you don't leave it on a 24/7 news/weather channel, but for a monitor I expect to last the life of the computer at least. I'm still using a monitor from 2013/14, still working as intended, likely can't say that about a OLED in 7-8 years.

 

So my answer till burn in is removed about OLED monitors:

The monitor could talk to your preferred deity and I still wouldn't use it for a computer.

I thought LG said in July it was not coming to Canada, or they had no plans to release it in Canada.  

I did see amazon.ca did create a listing for it, so theres that..

I've been using a 49" 4K TV as monitor for years now, and a high refresh rate and VRR of the same size, OLED even better was what I've been waiting for since, so I might be tempted... I do photo editing but have a calibrator so don't worry too much about that.

 

Only drawback is it isn't curved, my current TV is and it does a noticeable imprivement to the center/corner distance difference, and also to panel viewing angle although that wouldn't be an issue on an OLED.

Becasue you watch it from a bit farther away.

Wake me up when there's a monitor that can reproduce dark tones as good as my 2006 CRT

from what I've seen even the most expensive ones have a shitty bleed/glow effect whenever a black/dark image is displayed. some will say "it's not that bad" because there's basically no other option to choose rather than LED anymore.

 

And all manufacturers do is add inches and inches, compensating for something I presume. what's with the huge sizes? mine is 19" and enough for what I do which is college stuff and play some games

This is OLED, not LCD and has perfect blacks and no glow, certainly better than any CRT.

Been using a $275 TCL 43S405 for years, it's plain jane, 60hz 4K but it's been one of the best purchases I have made since the GeForce 256. I game on it, not competitively, but it's fine-enough, text is sharp, bright enough for a dim-ish room, I spend 12 hours a day in front of the thing looking at side by side spreadsheets and other office web crap and it's been a lifesaver compared to budget 27" 1080 and 1440's.. I can't find anything even remotely in the price range in 32" or up to replace it with, still, and I look, every couple months. I know I'm getting old and piddle around playing ED and Mass Effect and the like, but the stupid TV is good at being a monitor.  Also the speakers are garbage but who cares. And it has a reasonably functioning Roku lol.  It is damn hard to go back after you have a 40"+ "monitor".  The only drag has been buying enough GPU to run 4K at reasonable settings.    https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/tcl/s-series-s405-4k-2018

Depends on the use case.

 

if ur thinking u can mistreat it like an LCD, then yes its a problem.

 

if u treat it like displays used to be treated in the days of CRT and Plasma, then no.

I got to see a 48CX in a store yesterday, wanted to have a look first hand to make sure the pixel gap was acceptable, early OLEDs had small pixels in a sea of black leading to bad screen door effect, but it looks like it's solved now, the gap is tiny, maybe even less than an LCD.

 

Starting to seriously consider it...

This is my first OLED ever so I'm a bit new to this. Essentially, if I'm only using it for gaming and movies, I should be good as long as I have a constantly moving image?
