    I am seeing the same thing going from the 65" C9 in my living room to the CX 48". C9 seemed to get brighter overall. I was definitely tempted by Black Friday deals for the 42C2 but I knew that like the CX 48" it would be less than ideal. I'm...

    Same thing for OLEDs really. I am not at all bothered by my LG CX 48" from my couch but 125% scaling helped mitigate text rendering issues when set at a more desktop friendly viewing distance. That's why I don't have very high hopes for the 27"...

    And if you are focused on TVs, which still seems to be the market they really care about it, it really doesn't matter very much. I have an S95B and there is absolutely zero indication that there is any subpixel wackiness when you are looking at...

    What a great post. Some people could take note how to discuss something without namecalling. How does color volume play into all this? QD-OLED is supposed to have better color volume than LG OLEDs thanks to quantum dot shenanigans. I haven't...

    LCD and OLED have their good attributes, but this is severely underrating how bright some OLEDs now can get in HDR mode. I love both tech, and can appreciate both. Don't forget that OLEDs have automatic picture brightness levelling behavior...

    Except that very same QD-OLED is also limited to ~250 nits brightness for SDR. I would not be surprised if LG also adds a couple of different HDR modes like the AW QD-OLED for "True Black 400" DisplayHDR certification and a "about 1000 nits at...

    200 nits is totally fine for SDR content in my experience. My Samsung G70A LCD is not the brightest, maxing out at around 400 nits but I run it at about 120 nits, day or night. I used the LG CX 48" at the same brightness level. For me this is...

    No to 120FPS reliably at 4K. Some titles yes. All titles no. But it’ll be good enough with the VRR that you won’t have any issues with that setup. I have a very similar setup and some of my games run 70-80FPS at 4K with maxed out settings...

    If you are using MacOS for your work, the issue is largely MacOS itself. It uses a very naive form of scaling. Just "target res x2 -> downscale to native". Running a 5K at its default a "looks like 2560x1440" setting is integer scalable so it...

    Price. Pixel response time is even slightly worse than 60 Hz should have. Single USB-C input so can't be connected to more than one computer. No HDR support. The stand option thing is absolutely ridiculous. No reason to buy anything but the VESA...

    The technology wing of KFC of course!

    That's kind of why I was hoping they would focus on things like increased refresh rate and a fixed curve model. It's hard to sell a C3 if it's just the same thing as the C2 but more expensive unless they delay release until C2 supplies are depleted.

    kasakka replied to the thread LG 48CX.
    When I moved, I was thinking of originally selling my CX 48" but it happened to be a great size for our small living room. But I was actually happy to go back to a smaller LCD for desktop use. The CX was good but I was often not using its full...
  • K
    Sounds to me they have zero interest in putting any work into it and will instead just use it as a concept to release a better version later based on feedback. This is honestly par for the course for any Samsung displays. They might get a few...

    I've literally used the CX 48" for two years as a desktop display. ~8+ hours 5 days a week for work, personal use on top of that. Still no burn in, it works fine in my living room. It's a good idea to hide taskbar/dock/topbar and to use dark...

    Was real tempted to get the G8 at 999 euros on sale but I think I'm going to pass and wait until CES to see if there's something better in the pipeline.

    kasakka replied to the thread MSi 49" Ultrawide 240Hz QD-OLED.
    So far Samsung has not been interested in making either of those form factors. Honestly 3840x1600 seems pretty much dead at this point and manufacturers will just eventually make better 5120x2160 40" displays. Well, at least I hope they do...
  • K
    I'd probably just go for the Gigabyte M32U for a 32" model. Gigabyte M28U or Samsung G70A for 28" model. Both should be a good chunk cheaper than the Asus models and perform similarly.

    HDMI 2.1 should be fine when paired with DSC. Even a 2x ratio compression could deliver 7680x2160 10-bit 144 Hz with a 48 Gbps port. At 3x compression 40 GBps port would still do probably like 180 Hz. Still a bit pissed off about the lack of DP...
