    LG UltraFine OLED Pro a - 160Hz 1ms 4k 31.5" panel. There are a slew of sizes expected, as small as 20" all the way up to the 42" which afaik is the only one to actually use an LG made panel.




    This particular model is NOT afaik, an LG panel - so thru process of elimination of who's making panels at this size... well this seems to be from one of the more unknown Chinese panel manufacturers - possibly BOE or Tianma OR - another possibility is this could be one of Samsung's new QD-OLED panels.

    Connection wise, The LG UltraFine OLED Pro comes with USB-C, threee standard USB ports, two DisplayPort connections and HDMI.

    With 99% DCI-P3 & Adobe RGB accuracy and the natural advantage of ultra blacks, this series is set to be perfect prosumer creator devices.

    Previous non OLED monitors in the UltraFine range have been on the upper end of the price range for similar products, around the 1k + usd mark - and I see no reason to suspect that wont be the case here. LG has developed a reputation for deliberately keeping OLED prices artificially high, even going to the trouble of slowing production to maintain their price premium.

    I hope it doesn't take as long as the CX 48" to come to market as I grow tired of waiting years before i can actually buy one - but I wont hold my breath.

    I'm beyond excited for the 42" OLED panel to go on sale in something.

    I'm assuming it will be 41.5" viewable, 4k, 120Hz+ - perfect!! :thumbup:

    I think this is the one we've been waiting for.

    This looks heavily marketed as productivity more so then gaming (apart from high refresh rate)

    Will we see VRR? Backlight strobing?

    First generation non LG OLED might not be ideal, unless it's Samsung.. They at least mastered them in mobile devices.

    I'd rather the LG 42" OLED TV.

    My current monitor was not a gaming focused monitor - VRR would be nice to have though.

    Heard the 32" model is actually 60hz in a hardware unboxed video.

    makes much more sense, not sure why video editors need 160hz

    It would be the perfect replacement for my 43" Philips which is aging a bit these days. However I've got my mind se on the 48" and mounting it on the wall rather than sitting it on the desk so I have that further viewing distance away from the monitor.

    For desktop viewing distance it would be perfect.
    3 of these would be super for my line of work.
    Overkill but awesome indeed.

    Could be either, there is speculation of a 42" release at some point in the future.

    ok, that makes sense. :) I am so much tempted for the CX48 / C9. But the 2021 models are not yet available.

    After being excited for the 48OLED and realising it was definitely too big for my usage, I will be very happy to update to a 42" if it makes it to AU.

    Do you think 48" 4K is too big for a PC monitor?

    That depends entirely on how far away you are. My 55” is fine from 1.5m

    Primary, yes, secondary or sitting far away is ok.

    < 32" 4K is retarded though.

    For a "normal" desk with around 80 cm depth, 48" is just right. Optimal distance for 48" is 1 meter. Otherwise it's wall mounting, I guess.

    I have currently a 4K 42" inch. When I got it 2 years ago, I thought, "OMG, is this big". Now I am so accustomed to this size, that even a 38" would not be acceptable anymore.

    I envy you. In Australia, it seems everything needs to be huge :D
