    Used to work at a place running print servers/rips 24/7 and more often than not someone would forget to turn the monitor off and leave it sitting on the EFI dashboard all weekend, sometimes two weeks over Christmas. An old iMac developed burn in from one of the hard interface lines, not all screens were susceptible to burn in but it put into perspective how long it takes for an image to permanently burn into a display.

    with dimming, screensavers and auto power off switched on you have little to worry about. The online guides and advice are for people who don’t know any better.

    Had my 65cx for 2 months now, genuinely thinking of getting a second one.

    Looks like richer sounds have the 48 CX up for a stonker of a price. £1193 but with a £100 off voucher which takes it to £1093 if my maths are correct.
    Valid till tomo midnight so looks like I’ll be buying one later today or tomo to go with my series x console. Been after a decent gaming TV set and I was about to buy one earlier this year. But the 48” was still a little too expensive for my wallet.
    Now that it’s down to £1093 with the £100 off, it’s a no brainer.

    I already have the 55” C9 model and absolutely love the screen.

    Costco are a fair bit cheaper, seen some amazing in-store deals on them as well.

    Yes I heard Costco were doing or are doing them for £200 off the listed price. But sadly they don’t do any finance options. Richer sounds actually works out cheaper with their deal. It’s £983 with the buy now pay 6mths later, you pay a 10% deposit with their finance and Costco works out to £997 all in.

    EDIT: ordered and will be delivered on Wednesday. Can’t wait to hook it up to my series x console. Finally get the chance to enjoy gaming in glorious OLED colours.

    I agree the C9/CX/C1 have changed a lot from old OLED days, with anti burn -in features and LG have improved the panel with the -20% static logo Luminance, brightness dimming, Screen Shift to help with image retention.:) But the problem still remains is the user that don't follower advice/guide

    I've heard STV Player has been made available on the CX but not checked it yet. Anyone tried it?

    Finally got my 48 cx this morning and set it up with my Xbox series x and wow what a picture :eek:

    I already know just how great OLEDS are as I have a c9 in my living room.

    But paired with my series x, I can finally enjoy crisp colourful gaming for a change.
    Just have to get used to going from a 32” to a 48” as it’s quite a bit bigger.

    Hi all, would be interested to hear your thoughts on oled above a fireplace. I've posted photos of my proposal in thread below.

    You will also see in below thread that the room is bay windows (south facing) will that be problematic with glare /reflections? Generally I watch TV in the evening and I have another larger room open plan (slightly smaller 55"tv) for daytime viewing.

    I find it strange that I have All4 on my C8 but it's not available on the CX.

    2020 LG devices didn't partner with Freeview Play so didn't get the full suite of ~8 player apps. BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub have been approved separately, and I think My5? But not All4.

    Well after reading reviews and this thread for a long time, finally picked myself up a 48” CX. Bought it from Costco as even though there wasn’t particularly any special deals on at my local one, still though £997 was a cracking price.

    Not set it up yet as recently moved house and decorating the room it’s going in, which is going to be a game/man cave room. But now looking for a stand/entertainment unit for it to sit on along side a PS5/Xbox Series S. So looking forward to the OLED goodness!

    Picked up a 65 C9 off AVforums classified for £750 squids last night just in time for the footie tonight! Stonking telly.

    I have the 55 B9 so after selling that probably only cost a £100 or so.

    So I've got my new cx 48 set up. Picked cinema bright room and all post processing e.g. sharpness , noise reduction to low/off following a guide.

    The dark scenes and blacks looks amazing. But can't help and notice the grain in bright scenes. Is this to be expected?

    Is it just the apps -netflix and Disney? Played rachet and clank on ps5 which looks stunning with no grain.
