    I currently rock a 4k 40" Samsung LED TV for a monitor and it has exceptionally low input lag and response time, been better than my old actual PC monitor.
    Sitting very close, most crisp clear beautiful thing ever... That is until... OLED.

    Been looking at OLED in the shops but nothing smaller than 55"?
    I want 43" tops, i sit 1-2 feet away i don't want bigger, also it won't fit under the shelf that's just above my current screen.
    Where? how? I googled and they seem non existent?

    Did the same a while ago, it seems they just don't make them as mainstream PC monitors, the biggest reason probably being that a 4K OLED monitor would be very expensive, minimizing sales potential, and there would be massive warranty headaches for the manufacturer as PC usage frequently involves portions of the screen displaying static images (e.g. Taskbar) for extended periods of time, causing burn-in. I have to agree, it's probably not the best idea to run OLED as a PC monitor unless you're very cautious by nature.

    I didn't realise it suffered from the old Plasma issue of burn in?

    The blacks are just sexy. Although my Samsung is HDR but not OLED sexy.

    Yep, not as bad as some people make out, but over time, yes they will show burn-in if a static portion is constantly displayed, e.g. as I covered here

    Agree, my new qled blows my old LED monitor out of the water in both black and colour. Thought my old one was good, boy was I wrong. Have tried a million adjustments and can’t even get close to tge qled

    Isn't QLED just a quantom dot backlight which increases color range? QLED VA monitors should give you a closer picture to OLED compared to a QLED IPS but thats just because of VA's higher contrast.

    Maybe you missed the part where my TV is better than my monitor. I have them side by side. Yes in latency, res, same htz and tv has HDR.
    It's like marine oil, same shit, 3x the price.

    I don't personally know how you sit so close to something that size, I sit about 100mm from my 30" dell and I find that too close.

    Anyway, have you checked out the C8 OlED 55" from LG? It has some pretty good ratings for the price and does come on sale infrequently.

    Assume you mean cm's.

    40" Would probably be the max for me at the distance I sit away from my monitor. Way too big otherwise.

    Hence why i didn't want a 55, also the PPI would start to suffer. The 40" 4k has better PPI than your stock 24" 1080p and it's beautiful at even 1-2 feet away. I do like to feel immersed. Having said that i still can't flight sim on the monitor after VR.
    Also shelf above the desk won't allow anything over about a 43" although i could DIY some hack up the house.

    Will check out this LG :)
