48 “LG CX 4K OLED Smart TV for $ 1396.99
Bonus $ 140 Newegg Gift Card included
After 6 months of using the LG CX 48 “OLED TV as my main gaming monitor, I still firmly believe that this is the best gaming monitor you can buy right now, especially if you have an RTX 30 series video card. The CX OLED and RTX 30 series cards support HDMI 2.1, so you can output 4K at 120Hz, the LG CX also supports 4: 4: 4 color at 4K and G-SYNC technology, and the OLED panel blows out any IPS, VA or TN monitor in terms of black and color levels, response time below 1 ms and plenty of brightness for true HDR, there is really no disadvantage of OLED TVs in terms of pure image quality.
One disadvantage of OLED is the greater chance of burning with static images; That said, LG OLED TVs have been out for 9 years and have many built-in features that are designed to prevent this. There are many good recent tests that show that burning is a minor problem with regular use. Unfortunately, I am an outler; I’ve been using my monitor for at least 12 hours a day for 6 months (that’s at least 2,000 hours) and I still haven’t noticed any burn problems. I haven’t heard many first-hand messages about other computer gamers who have encountered this problem.
At this price, CX OLED competes with the highest class game monitors from Samsung, Asus, Acer and even LG themselves. Of course, this “monitor” doubles as an amazing 4K HDR TV. Like the other models in the CX range, the 48-inch features excellent webOS Smart TV software, includes a convenient remote control and sporty surprisingly built-in speakers.
