    ViewSonic XG341C-2K 200Hz VA Ultrawide with DisplayHDR 1400

    It's notable that the 32" panel with 4608 zones also has four LEDs per zone, which inclines me to think that it's for some other reason than processing power. My guess would be it's to average out any differences in brightness or color temperature between individual LEDs so at least each zone is...

    ViewSonic XG341C-2K 200Hz VA Ultrawide with DisplayHDR 1400

    BOE is a likely candidate. They have a panel that almost exactly fits the spec.

    Corsair 45WQHD240 ultrawide 45” 1440p 240Hz OLED with LG panel

    Very cool monitor, but 1440p and lack of VESA mounting make this overall a less versatile option vs. the 42" OLEDs. I was just posting about the reasons for keeping the PPI relatively low on OLED monitors in the near term; lower PPI is more efficient, which = higher brightness and longer...

    LG to focus on making Oled Gaming Monitors

    Not that I know of. Although, all else being equal, smaller pixels need to be run harder to achieve equal brightness as larger ones, which increases power draw and heat output. So it may well be that a higher PPI panel would have more aggressive ABL.

    LG to focus on making Oled Gaming Monitors

    Think about it like this: there's brightness, lifespan, and pixel density. If you increase any one, it reduces the other two. It's a balancing act.

    LG to focus on making Oled Gaming Monitors

    OLED displays used in phones can be designed for high brightness because the lifespan is expected to be much shorter, and running at high brightness will age the emitters much faster, which is what causes burn in. The average phone screen is on for less than 4 hours a day, whereas a desktop...

    LG to focus on making Oled Gaming Monitors

    I'm guessing any 27-30" OLED panels they make will be limited to 1440p, and 1080p for anything less than 27". The pixel aperture ratio probably gets too small for acceptable brightness/lifespan at higher PPI than that.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Can anyone using the QN90B as a PC monitor comment on the pixel bleeding issue described in this Amazon review?

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    There seems to be a tradeoff between brightness, lifespan, and pixel density with OLED, and increasing one spec reduces the other two. A 32" 4k has about a 26% higher pixel density than 27" 1440p, so I'm guessing they're trading lower pixel density for higher brightness and/or lifespan for a...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    LG has a 240hz 27" 1440p panel planned according to tftcentral. Sounds like it will be WRGB.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I often see people conflating image retention and burn in when they really have nothing to do with each other. Even Vincent Teoh (HDTVTest) is guilty of this, and he should know better. Image retention is caused by charge build up in the cells. LCD, OLED, and plasma displays are all susceptible...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    It does appear blue OLED + QDCC is patented by Samsung, so LG couldn't just straight up copy it. Could they do WOLED with QDCCs? Maybe, but it may not work as well for technical reasons. Ideally you use blue to downconvert to red and green. With white you might get unwanted wavelengths that...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    LCD with QDCC has been talked about for years as a logical next step in LCD development after QDEF (QD enhancement film on the backlight), and Samsung even had plans to launch QDCC LCD TVs in 2017 (QDCF = quantum dot color filter, same thing as QDCC). It could still happen, but at this point it...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    This is so far off base I feel compelled to step in and correct you. QLED is Samsung's name for LCD with a quantum dot-enhanced LED backlight (which enhances color gamut). I believe these are all VA type LCD, not IPS. Nano IPS is LG's name for an IPS LCD using a narrow band absorbing dye in the...
