    if OLED burns in, what is a suitable near future equivalent for using a TV screen as a monitor?

    only drawbacks i've found are limited resolutions and refresh rates, but i don't care about that anymore.

    is qled 8k going to give 'good enough' blacks as oled now? as long as there's no input lag i'm good.

    i don't know why people still buy computer monitors, unless you're a gamer or need the best in color/refresh rates. for the casual user, having OCAU on a massive screen is just easier.

    then again, not everyone has the same eyes...

    VA/ips is the best for picture quality and a balance between $$$ and refresh rate

    Perhaps you'd like to make some comments on how he is mistaken? Do you have any actual technical knowledge on the subject?

    This is the ONLY OLED monitor on the market according to Linus and its not an old review either, its 21.5" and its 5 grand US. Apart from the various other downsides.

    Go ahead, make your counterpoints. If you can.

    I still don't understand why a "monitor" is priced ridiculously more than a TV when they have the same specs.
    If it's 4k 120hz or more sure.

    My 4K Samsung tele still craps on the Philips monitor my brother has.

    tvs are mass produced.
    gaming monitors are small volume only the massively popular ones are cheap and only offbrand
    if only there was gaming tvs that wherent overpriced shit id kill for a 120hz 4k freesync 2 reasonably priced screen

    Pixel density maybe? Same pixels in a much smaller screen, much harder to do. Also the super expensive one in the Linus video is manufactured with a different process than other OLED screens. And of course I didn't notice in the video whether the Asus monitor he reviewed was labelled 'Gaming' anywhere, but just the 'Gaming' label always adds a bunch of ripoff tax.

    yeah basically the smaller high dpi low volume monitors are $$$$$
    even phones are topping out at 2k res max

    I'm guessing by the marketing spiel that it's based off the same strain of tech as the Sony OLED BVM's (which are similarly crazypriced), where the subpixels are RGB OLED's and not WOLED plus filter as in the LG TV panel technology. LG saw the potential in WOLED technology applied to the TV market and went to commercialise it - they obviously knew that the simpler manufacturing process would be easier to achieve yields with. As we can glean from the longevity reviews, PC use is pretty much guaranteed to cause dissatisfaction from the cumulative pixel wear property so I would guess that LG has chosen not to offer any panels for this application quite deliberately.

    I highly doubt your TV has same input lag as PC monitor, same G2G pixel response time sure.. But as for input lag, gaming Pc monitors are down around 9-12ms and TV's usually around 20ms+ with a few exceptions as low as 15ms I think.

    Also what 65" OLED can you get for 2K? sounds good!

    Can't be asses checking online stores do it yourself but i seen many on end financial year sales.
    I know the difference between G2G and Input lag, my Samsung TV is 16MS.

    oled has tonnes of lag from black smear i dont think its an acceptable tech for gaming yet it would be extremely noticable on big screens especially at high hz

    Cheapest 65" OLED I found was 2.5k still pretty good.

    16ms is pretty epic for a TV. I want a Samsung QLED 2018 model with game motion plus to make those horrible 30fps consoles titles look nicer without tons of input lag.

    QLED seems to be the go, no burn in issue that they tell me OLED has, but still very sexy.
    Yes i was looking at Phillips, Sharp and Sony but the Samsung blew them away for input lag (online tests i found as well not just quoted stats.) So i bought it.
    However it required renaming HDMI 1 input to PC and it removes any post processing. It was 30ms or something normal.
    Apparently that is better than choosing "game mode"

    i have a 2018 q6. motion smoothing is a scam, just looks like motion blur. just hope next gen will be all 60fps.
