LG's smallest OLED yet, the 48" CX has been hotly anticipated as being both small enough to be used as a big monitor, and, at $1,500, inexpensive enough to consider as a TV upgrade to compliment the new Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 gaming consoles (due to HDMI 2.1 support for 4K 120 gaming).

  • How does this tv do in 1440p resolution ? Did it support propper VRR/Free sync when running xbox series x at 4k 120hz ? Hear something about some monitors didn't go that high on the free sync.. idk, just what I heard. I'm curious about the LG an d how it handles this tbh. Thinking about buying one of these LG CX 48 Tv tomorrow for my series x.. Atm i am using a Asus MG278Q monitor.. Probably no doubt about the LG CX beating my Asus monitor in absolutely every aspect possible ? Right ?? Ps: clearly i am no tech guru.. i am trying to find guidance on the subject. So please help me out 🙂

  • ABL (Automatic Brightness Limiter) is the dealbreaker here. On the CX series, its aggressive- so if you’re playing a game that’s in in dark area (or watching a movie for that matter) the screen dims until the scene changes or it gets bright again - and then you’ll literally see it brighten before your eyes. There’s no way to turn this off either. What. A. Shame.

Linus said to turning brightness down while also enabling tv protection software. But what about on the desktop? Remove the taskbar & icons? black background? wallpaper engine? anything else?

  • Custom resolution is *3840x1646* for a 21:9 aspect ratio. Math: 2160 divided by desired aspect ratio (21) multiplied by current aspect ratio (16) =1,645.714285*. then you round it up to the nearest pixel which can either be 1645 or 1646, your choice.

  • I had this tv, but sent it back to the store because of pixel shifting. It keeps moving my picture slowly to the left until things got cut out of the picture. Then i had to turn off the function and turn it on again. Had to this every day. Didn't try without the function because of burn in risk. Was a really nice tv, but this was a deal breaker for me.

  • OLED as a computer monitor is a no no though. The technology isn't good enough for static images yet. Questionable if it will ever be.

    D MD M3 天 前
  • I would argue less blur is actually bad for a video with low frames (ex. 30fps). In videography for instance when making drone videos, we put on ND filter on camera specifically to force the slow shutter speed in order to introduce the blur. As a result, the 30Fps video looks incredibly smooth. If on the contrary each frame was a very sharp image - the video would appear extremely stuttery, creating a sense that the frame rate is way too low. It may be counterintuitive to most people. You would need to feed this OLED TV high frame video in order to see the advantage. Above 60Fps

    Andrew ScAndrew Sc3 天 前
  • This looks stunning however WHY do they make the TV take so much unnecessary space with the ButtockHump?? I would much rather it be a slimmer, heavy and wider with a flexible small arm holding the monitor, or at least an up/down/left/right angle turning possibility. Just perfect the top tier model already!

  • If it wasn't the burn-in problem (or the manufacturer *really* included that as part of the warranty), I would immediately switch to OLED in monitors. I'd prefer about 40" and 4K resolution, though.

  • Does this support a proper BFI (black frame insertion)?

    Mikko RantalainenMikko Rantalainen3 天 前
  • Does this thing have proper RGB subpixels? I'm using 43UD79-B and it has BGR panel that's good enough in theory. However, it turns out that *many* programs want to render subpixel antialiasing by themself and it's rare that those programs support BGR. Pretty much all software blindly assumes either greyscale or RGB subpixel rendering. It has 4K resolution for 43" so it has better visual resolution from the same distance than this 48" TV.

Having the screen real estate of 4x 1080p monitors without any bezels is life changing for productivity. I could never see myself going back to a conventional monitor.
