    That's going to get on my desk after I manage to buy a non-scalped priced new generation GPU.
    Current monitor is a 34" ultrawide, so the 48" normal wide is not actually wider (if including the side bezels of current monitor), just taller.

    Not much of a point right now since I'm stuck with the old GTX 1080.

    ""a phenomenon caused by no discount attached to 48-inch products with high demand."

    This is going to make them so much cheaper. I have the CX 48" and I paid (as the article points out) more than for the 55" model.

    The problem with the 48" is that it is cut from the same big (motherglass) panel as the 77" models are. But not many 77" models are sold and thus not many 48" are produced. If they can produce 8x 48" models from one motherglass panel then it will dramatically increase production and price.

    You are in for a treat. The biggest downside to this screen is the reflection because it is glossy. But you can put in in a picture mode where it raises blacks and that helps with it. But that also negates the black is black on OLED. Because then its not true black (I.e. turned off). But god.. At night in a dark room. The picture is just sooooooo out of this world good!

    I got a 48" CX at launch but had to send it back after a couple of days because it had a faulty eARC socket (audio sounded like it was a dolphin squealing underwater). I chose to get a full refund instead of a replacement though because I couldn't bare the immersion-breaking reflections from that glossy screen. It's no use claiming 'true blacks' when in dark scenes your TV turns into a freakin mirror. :(

    Needless to say, I will not be having another OLED for gaming anytime soon. Unless they add a matte finish to the screen.

    If you play in a lit room, or even slightly lit room, this TV monitor is not for you. The glare is impossible to overcome, if there is light in front of it. But this is a story for every other TV on the market. I don't think that Samsung does better with its QLEDs anti reflexive coating, although I haven't had one to test.
    But once you roll your curtains and turn off the light, this TV is the most immersive display you have ever gamed on in your life. And I can swear by it. I got the 55" CX, mounted it on the wall, 90 cm distance from my eyes. It's just amazing how any game feels on this TV, with Gsync on as well. I don't even want to mention proper HDR PC games (which are just a handful unfortunately) how they look. The immersion is amazing, it just sucks you inside the image. And all of this is done at 1440p since there is no change to buy a HDMI 2.1 videocard this year, at least where I live.
    For people playing MMOs' or other competitive games with the light on, or with the sun burning inside the room, this TV has no use. But for gamers that enjoy games for their immersion the LG OLED is the best there is. Is great that this year there will be a lot more brands to launch gaming OLED TV's and I have high hopes even for the Qneds from Samsung. But it might be that LG has a head start in this and managed to solve or overcome some of the inherent issues that arrived with the OLED gaming. We'll see.

    Hmm interesting. Love my CX 48". Maybe this year we will se much improved C11, that would be awesome. And yes, those TV/monitors are shiny but in my case dont really care, picture quality and response time is the best I have seen so far.

    The 120 Hz the OLEDs are capable of is more than enough.
    They have "motion resolution" much better than any LCD, due to the fact that pixels have near-instant response (0.1ms)... so 120 Hz actually feels much faster than 165 or 240 Hz IPS/TN.

    I'm only missing a damn HDMI 2.1 GPU to actually start gaming on my TV... #fückminersandscalpers

    Around 32" would be welcome, although I won't get one instantly anyhow because it will have a too high price as well..

    Yeah agreed but I'm sure we'll have micro-LED monitors before affordable 32" OLED's.

    I think that will take even more time. There's at least a 31.5" OLED monitor coming out this year as G3D previously reported on

    I haven't even tried with the RTX yet but with my previous GTX I tried playing Nioh (which is quite dark) and it looked the best a dark game could look on a C8 oled (60hz)
    was especially surprised by the sharpness of the asphalt on GTA4 you could really see the grain on it even while going fast, without enough fps for 4K I gave up playing on it, now I have enough just didn't have time to set it up yet

    A 42" LG OLED would be an interesting gaming screen, I love my ASUS PG35VQ 35" ultrawide and the 48" LG screen was just too big for me. Only went for the PG35VQ when it was reduced in the Amazon Black Friday 3 week sale by £700, still an expensive purchase at £1,800. The lower bezel is 75 cms from my table edge, that distance works well for me with this monitor.

    I'm sure it looks amazing but 90 cms from a 55" screen would be too close for me. my eyes about 90 cms from my monitor
