    Hanging out for the 42" version. I think 48" is a bit too big for a monitor, but a 120hz 42" OLED 4k panel would be absolutely perfect and allow a 100% no windows scaling experience.

    Anyone found a desk mount arm for these bad boys? The vesa mount is 300 x 200 I think. They only weight 14kg, and many arms can support 20kg, but I can't find one with the right size vesa mounts.

    That monitor is pretty crazy anyways! Nice pickup. Did you consider the 48" LG or wanted to go super widescreen?

    Wanted to go super ultra wide for ms flight 2020 and cyberpunk 2077.

    Saying that i also play a fair bit of bf1 online and that is supported at this screen format too.

    Wanted to push my rtx3090 a bit more and that wasnt so easy at 3440 by 1440 on the previous monitor.

    Happy with the new monitor so far however not really sure hdr in games are adding anything...my eye sight is shocking tho...

    Yeah it looks like they are no longer listing it all.

    Earlier today it did give a delivery date of sometime in April - maybe they took it down as thats so far away?????

    Now I will need to know where in Australia they will be available.....

    Well I'm thinking they are just done, there is no more stock available / coming in to Aus :Paranoid:

    I have heard comments to that effect on other forums, as in no more coming in at all.

    when using this as a monitor, can you actually get higher than 60Hz?
    I'm considering using my TV for my screen (samsung lcd), but a friend said that with TVs you can only do 60Hz max from PC (other devices go higher)

    Bought the 55" cx oled from good guys last thursday with 10% off promo came up to around $2700+ and with delivery included it was $2800 all up.
    Which was a pretty good bargain imo. Picture is pretty impressive loving the 120hz oled visuals so far.

    So you're using this as your desktop pc monitor? Size wise it's ok for your desk? How big is your desk?

    Is this for your desktop? I was considering the CX55 as well, because it is cheaper than the smaller CX48. But I found it too big as desktop (depth around 90cm) and got the CX48.

    Nah chainy for home entertainment atm( xbox series x and hopefully soon my ps5) atm, I'm still running a 1080ti atm and x99 mobo & CPU right now - can't find a good gpu and CPU to upgrade to lol. Probably once more amd 5900 and rtx 3080 stock becomes available I'll use it as a desktop if my system upgrade can happen. I'll also need to buy a new desk to put it on lol.

    Wow, great news everybody! :leet: Production this year ramping up five fold of 48" panels. My decision to wait might just have been a good one : )
