    On the fly optimisation of HDR. And no chip needed as long as the processor is powerful enough, firmware update sufficient. More info.

    I'm very tempted to give the 48 a go over my LG 38 wide. Thing is, I've done a 43 back in the day and actually found it too big, but I had a very different desk. I figure if I'm sitting further back it should be ok.

    Still, bit of a gamble...

    The house move is coming up quickly now so looking at wall mounts to get this puppy installed for the new desk.

    Couple of options at vastly different ends of the pricing spectrum.

    Kogan low profile mount ($20 with first trial): https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/kogan-low-profile-fixed-wall-mount-32-75-tvs/
    Sits 19.5mm off the wall, has side to side movement for centering on the mount, looks like there would be a little height adjustment there too with all the mounting holes.

    Vogels slim wall mount ($159+shipping): https://www.amazon.com.au/Vogels-Mount-505-Extra-Bracket/dp/B06XX1XYJQ/
    Sits 15mm off the wall, looks like no wiggle room for height adjustment with that bracket.

    I feel like I should just send it on the more expensive mount given the cost of the screen, but any thoughts? Having some wiggle room for height on the bracket without drilling new holes would be nice.

    I used a similar mount in the lounge room and totally regret it..
    I wish I'd got something better so I can pull the TV out from the wall a little bit too make it easier to get to the connections etc

    This is exclusively for my PC so the cables will be one and done. I grabbed the kogan one and will see how it goes.

    People who uses these OLED TV as monitors how much time - you spent daily on average?
    I'm thinking of getting one C1 - and with my daily usage - bit worry about burn-in issue that mentioned.
    Planning to replace my LG 43UD which is my daily driver of last ~3yrs for work / browsing/ gaming/ streaming @ 13/14hrs per day/ with connected to my work/desktop/personal laptop at times and pi - when I needed to.

    Won't lie, there is a risk, but I think it's a fairly minimal risk if you institute a few things like the built in pixel/screen shift, which I think is on by default anyways. I haven't heard of any horror stories so quite honestly I think you will be fine for normal use.

    I'm using a 48CX as a daily driver for WFH and gaming in the evening. Similar uptime to you I think. Primary windows open are Outlook, Teams, Excel and Chrome. I run the screen at fairly high brightness as well as my eyesight is shite. I take some steps to mitigate burn-in, such as auto-hiding the taskbar, using dark mode wherever possible, using a plain black wallpaper and some aggressive screensaver settings. There is as Chilled said still a risk but tests like the rtings burn-in test show that it's most likely to occur with static images like TV logos (eg CNN) over a long period, so I think the risk is mitigated enough for me. And also the sheer screen size is phenomenal for spreadsheeting.

    Ok a little late to the party but it's done, purchased a 48" C1. Rang one TGG's store and they said the $2,076 (20% off price) had expired yesterday so best they could do was $2,350.

    Thought I'd ring another store and see what they could do. They had one left, and could do it today if I picked it up for $2,000 flat. I couldn't say "SOLD!" quick enough :leet:
