C8 77". It is literally perfect for gaming, and it replaced a TV that wasn't bright enough in my living room because there are a lot of windows.

LG B7 here.
If you fear burn-in, use pixel refresher for any videogame session longer than 4 hours. The real nemesis of these screens are games' UI and HUDs or newsfeeds at the bottom of news channels.
My average playtime per day is 4 hours. 8 on weekends. Been rocking this TV for two years and I have zero issues.

LG B8 OLED for about a year and a half. Going good. Inky blacks, primarily watch video content but no retention issues. Glad I chose it over QLED.

55” CX. Never owned an OLED before this. Glorious picture quality BUT I must ask- do you all have the setting for Energy Saving set to auto, off, low, medium or maximum? I keep it at minimum to reduce screen image burn in. I hadn’t at auto originally but I’m not too sure if it’s safe to do so. I use it primarily as a console gamer and pc usage.

The 48" is the CX right?
I know it's too big on the desk but hell... will it support freesync ?

I mean.. it's 120hz 4k oled ffs. I want it.
Just Give me 27-32" monitor version and must have freesync and displayport

No tv comes with display ports and they are not expected to

Turn it OFF, it will cause annoying fluctuations in brightness based on the lighting in the room I believe.

I am in my 4th oled now:

LG B6 55 2016: first 4K OLED! VERY bright, and amazing dejudder which improved motion clarity at just 50ms cost, as all other OLEDs from here lag at 100ms with dejudder making them unplayable, some IR after 15 months of use, and only 4:2:2 chroma usable as the 4:4:4 mode was even laggier, had some undefeteable edge enhancement and some problems with black processing under 5% IRE as all previous OLEDS before

LB B7 55 2017: brighter than B6! first 120hz monitor, improved input lag to 21ms at 4:4:4 chroma, reduced ABL which made web browsing better, but it had dim HDR in game mode

SONY A8F 65 2018: Amazing TV for movies!, better size, high color accuracy and gamma out of the box, GREAT processing for cable TV at 1080i and consoles at 1080p (much better than LG sets and my current B9), BFI at 60hz for games and at 24hz for movies which made excellent analog film projector-like motion, lower brightness than B7 and but less aggressive/noticeable ABL. Zero image retention after 17 months PC use

LG B9 55 2019: Gsync! 4K120, 6ms input lag, but less impactful HDR than the Sony bc of less nits. Also BFI is locked at 60Hz even with 24hz content

Saturday deliveries are a thing! Just got my LG CX. I'm replaying God of War, because that was one of the HDR "wow" games on my previous TV (KS7000, EU model so KS8000 in the US).

Early in the game, there's that bit where you go to a place with trees that have red leaves in them. Previously, that was "wow". Now it's "Ho Lee Fuk". The HDR looks absolutely phenomenal. Not regretting my purchase one bit.

Sooo guys, is seriously none of you bothered by the C9’s motion handling?

I’m three weeks in with this TV and, much to my dismay, I don’t think I’ll turn off TruMotion ever again. The C9 handles it with a minimum of “soap opera effect” in very fast scenes, and it’s better for me than turning it off and basically see every moving line doubled due to the instantaneous pixel refresh of OLED.

Game mode drives me up the wall with free-camera 30fps 3D games. I tried Tomb Raider Anniversary on my X1X today, and the judder as the camera moves around makes me actually nauseous. Yeah, until today I considered any motion interpolation to be a cardinal sin, but if I don’t turn it on here, everything looks shaky. It’s not the only game that does this of course, just the most recent example I’ve tried. It’s basically impossible to get anything in focus as I move the camera around, everything is a blur.

I’m just baffled that so few gamers and cinema lovers complain about this, I’d think the most anal gamers would jump at this immediately. Surely they can’t all be playing only PC games at 60+ fps on the C9? There must be some console peasant affected by this?

I'll join in on this jerk off thread because we are basically the PC master race of Television. We refuse to settle like those LCD peasants.

All jokes aside, I have a 65" E8 and a 49" Sony X900E. The blacks are what make the OLED elite. My Sony looks really good due to the full array back-light, but it can never compete with the OLED.

The next step is either find a way to brighten these sets for HDR purposes or maybe we will have to look forward to micro-LED as a potential savior there.
I'm personally happy with the HDR levels on my C9 being where they are. I don't get these insane 1500-2000 nit televisions, I'm not trying to fry my retinas. Then again my personal preference for HDR was a picture around 800nits, feels like it strikes a perfect balance by giving me the extra brightness and expanded color without me reaching for the remote to adjust the brightness and contrast.

Saturday deliveries are a thing! Just got my LG CX. I'm replaying God of War, because that was one of the HDR "wow" games on my previous TV (397427, EU model so KS8000 in the US).

You're going to make me do a third playthrough. That games implementation of HDR is something to behold on its own! It's more akin to Dolby Vision with how fine tuned it was.

Got an example? I've watched plenty of movies, TV shows and played plenty since the quarintine started and I know knocked out all of my school work this semester early. It's the most time I've spent with it since January (something like 100 hours since March 4th) and I've been using my PS4 and X1X with different games and I can't say that I've noticed specific motion handling at 24/30 fps, I'm actually pretty impressed as this is one of the only TV's I haven't had to use some kind of motion handling. Then again, I've always seemed to have TV's that had horrible motion handling so maybe even the modest improvement I'm seeing just so happens to be acceptable vs downright (fierce) bad?

I am planning to sell my LG OLED65B and buy a new Model with HDMI 2.1

What do you think, does this make sense? Thanks!

Hmm, seems the 48" CX is already out in the UK. It came out on May 11th according to this: https://www.lg.com/uk/about-lg/press-media/LG-BEGINS-UK-ROLLOUT-OF-2020-TV-LINEUP-SPEARHEADED-BY-AWARD-WINNING-OLED-TVS

And it's listed on the LG UK with a place to buy (Curry's). https://www.lg.com/uk/tvs/lg-oled48cx6lb#pdp_where


Any UK'ers seen one out in the wild?

Played with the C9 over the weekend. Watching movies and shows in HDR and Dolby Vision looked good. Playing 4k HDR games on the Xbox One X and PS4 also looked great! Where the TV didn't look great is when I was watching Satellite and playing non-4k HDR games on my PS4 and games on my Nintendo Switch. I switch it to Game mode and instantly Switch games are a dull, blurry mess. I understand the games are <1080p but the TV does a horrible job with upscaling. Tried messing around with various settings in game mode and even watched a couple videos on YouTube and tried their settings and can't find anything to help with it. The games actually look great if I change the picture mode to Standard but then I have to deal with the input lag. I mean it's not the LG's fault that Nintendo doesn't make better hardware but Switch games look amazing on my Sony X930E.

So do you guys have any suggestions for making Switch games look better when in game mode? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

You sound like when I was using an OLED tv for gaming, terrible playing 30 fps games in game mode, I pretty much had trumotion on all the time. Perhaps LG should look into adding trumotion for game mode like Samsung does.

Most people aren't that sensitive to motion. Why do you think consoles are at 30 fps & LCDs took off over Plasma & CRTs? Sadly you gotta hook up a PC to the OLED if you want to make best use of it if you're more aware of motion issues. The more fps you can feed it, the better, it really takes off. Elsewise look into getting a Sony.
