    I use the same eyes for movies and games... I guess it is the same for you. This is even more important for games than movies: you generally do not want to move your neck around to compensate for the blurriness near the sides of the screen (which is due to the decreased resolution in the eyes...

    Actually, THX recommended viewing angle is 40 degree, not 45-50. For 48", that means a viewing distance of ~4.8'. https://www.inchcalculator.com/tv-size-viewing-distance-calculator/ Note that THX based their recommendation on the field of view of the human eye, for which the resolution...

    About time! Dell also launched an OLED monitor a few years ago but was cancelled due to image quality concerns.

    It is possible that D-Nice's AWP does not work for you eyes as it was determined based on his own perception. So you should use whatever WP that looks better to you. If you have time to spare, some pros on AVS have suggested 0.3163x 0.3345y (plasma-ish) and 0.312x 0.3356y. While the i1...

    While It is correct that the 77 and 48 are manufactured on the same panel, D-Nice recommends to also apply his AWP on the 48" https://www.avsforum.com/threads/2020-lg-oled-calibration-and-user-settings-no-price-talk.3113174/post-60193111 I only have one AWP.... x0.309 y0.3290. It works on all...

    I never used HCFR and makes sense to follow the recommendation of the thread. Large variation between successive points is known to create issues such as banding so important to run test patterns to validate the results with your eyes. Also note that the i1 is likely inaccurate below 5% and may...

    Yes, HCFR should be fine but you will need a pattern generator... don't think that HCFR can "talk" to LG internal pattern generator (which is a great feature BTW) 109% white method is only recommended when you perform an elaborate calibration (which does not seem to be your intention). More...

    Yes, the forum is a mess and a rabbit hole. I agree that AutoCal is problematic (1D Lut creates artifcat and 3D Lut may be overly simplistic) My 48CX greatly benefited from a manual calibration since the factory calibration was poorly done. This varies by unit. So maybe you can perform a...

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    I have had my 3080 Strix for a month... very good card but the additional performance over my former 2080 Ti is a bit disappointing The biggest advantage is the support of HDMI 2.1, which allows 120FPS at 4K. The upcoming 3080 Ti will not be much faster (10%?) so I guess it is what it is...

    What happened to AMD's 'Big Supply'?

    In the real world where companies have shareholders, it generally does not make much sense to stock pile inventory and defer income. Also, this would prevent the minority who have secured a card to enjoy them. Low supply is better than no supply. Folks complain like AMD/NVIDIA went into...

    LG 48CX: Ideal viewing distance for gaming and work, helpful software (tiling) and other helpful info

    THX recommends 4.8ft as an optimal distance from a 48". This provides a viewing angle of 40 degrees. For PC use, I prefer 4.0ft which provides a viewing angle of 45 degrees. Eye sight loses definition beyond 45 degrees.. so at 3Ft (viewing angle of 60 degrees), it means that your head/neck will...
