I don't think I could use 27'' 1080 without heavy AA settings. I can barely notice between a 22-24'' 1080p and 22-24'' on higher resolution.

In the store I could see a difference between 1080p and 4k only when I was close (below 4m a.k.a 12 feet). On the 4k one, I didn't have any image clarity issues on the 0.7 - 1.5 m (2-4 feet), which is probably the ideal spot for immersion.

You could notice it only when you go below 0.5 m (1-2 feet), but honestly, I am not sure if anyone considers doing that.

Thanks for the info!

It might be, but it doesn't matter. Unless you plan to sit as close to a 55'' display as you would to a 27'' display, but that makes absolutely no sense at all.

Edit: You know you can use wireless mouse and keyboard, right ?

Adding to what ToTheSun! mentioned, the PPI value can be compared only when you are using the same distance. The further you move away from the monitor , the bigger PPI you can "afford". There was an alghorithm somewhere you could determine the max PPI you can notice at a given distance.

If you plan to buy one, try to find one in local store. There is an input lag related to them. This year releases seem better than the previous year. Ask the guy to let you connect a laptop and do some key typing. Also, you may need to take special precaution against burnin. Basically you cannot have the same image on the screen for more than a couple hours. So auto-hide dekstop icons, toolbar, volatile screensaver that pops after 10 min of innactivity ...etc. According to their manual, you shouldn't keep the same image more than 2 hours - if I remember corectly -. From what I've seen on the forums/ streamers , you can afford a bit longer. This comes into play where you have a static HUD at the same position on the screen. (e.g. healthbar)

You could also wait until CallsignVega sells his at a premium price. Shouldn't take to long tongue.gif

Wireless keyboard, mouse or gamepads give me the chills!
It's an old trauma i got from childhood when i was playing crash team racing on ps1 with my little brother and i was winning all the time! Well that was until i got a wireless gamepad. After that i couldn't figure out why i kept losing! After days of frustration when the batteries of the wireless gamepad run out and didn't had any extra laying around i was forced to use a wired gamepad. That's when i figured out why i kept losing before. Now if you tell me wireless stuff have been improved you'll remind me a friend with an xbox 360 couple years ago who told me the same thing only few months later to find him angry at the xbox 360's wireless gamepads.

Sorry for writing an essay about this, but that's my story why i can't stand wireless stuff when gaming.

I think i need to educate myself more on this as i usually leave my computer and monitor on all the time. redface.gif

I read lg uses some pixel shifting technology that avoids burn in but i guess cant rely on that too much.

You almost killed me from laughing on your last sentnece about callsignvega. biggrin.gif

Technology evolved since then.I can reach 300-350 APM and I don't have any problems with cheap-dirt wireless keyboards. With cheap wireless mouse, however, I can notice the it. If you can afford a 4k OLED TV , you can probably afford a "gaming" mouse for 50 bucks. But each on his own ...

I have the roccat tyon and i'm kinda stuck with it as there are no other mouse like it. Right now i use a 40" monitor and i think if i start using the keyboard drawer under my desk which will give me more distance away from the monitor i should be good with a 55" monitor/tv. The thing that sucks right now is crutchfield raised the price of this oled tv from $2,999 to $3,999 and it's not even in stock so it might be a while before i get one.

Are these lg oled tvs truly 120hz?
You can see the specs at 0:21.

Just the refresh rate, I doubt LG would throw a display port on there.

The lg oled55c6p price dropped to $2,999 on amazon. Couldn't resist and bought one redface.gif
I have titan x sli and i think they support hdcp 2.2 but i think it's impossible for 4:4:4 chroma 4k plus 60hz plus hdr on an hdmi 2.0.
Newer games will support hdr according to nvidia so it would be nice if this tv could support all of them at the same time.
Should i hope in the future it might be possible on this tv with a firmware upgrade and with a newer higher bandwidth hdmi cable?
