Not to mention owners of the dell oled might not be able to even experience that 1 better thing it will have as it requires usb-c to take advantage of the 120hz.
Another thing and that is from my personal experience, i went from a 144hz asus monitor to a 60hz crossover monitor in the past and in games i didnt see any noticeable difference except on some rare occasions. I hate we pc owners get treated as the worst customers ever and they give us panels with not even 1/3 of the futures and picture quality tv users get. Which is another reason i will try to stay away from pc monitors from now on and hope many more people do and all those crappy pc monitor makers go out of business or finally realize they should treat pc and tv users equally./stop giving us the short end of the stick.

so this means to power that DELL OLED it would require a GPU with USB-C out?(which would be zero?)

With the recent price drops I am also thinking of getting the C6...worried it might be too big for general use though. I'm also slightly concerned about burn in as I'd have it on the desktop at least 5 hours a day. I've owned one of the older 1080p OLEDs for a year now and haven't had any issues with burn in, but I rarely have static screens up on it. Anyone use this for daily tasks and not just gaming?

There's hopes since they delayed it that they might add dp 1.3 to it but there's no confirmation about it only hopes.

I use it for daily tasks too, one time when i locked my computer and left it for couple hours on the lock screen, the clock on the bottom left corner left some image retention which went away within 5 minutes of use. You cant get permanent burn in on this tv as it has technology that prevents that.

I have a 48" set up now at about 26" away, worried if I buy this 55" if it will be too big

Can't take pics right now, got to clean my room first lol.
But to give you an idea, i have this tv on this desk
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FAJ1X0C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
and without the use of this keyboard tray
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001B0BBSS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
it feels very close to my face, but when using this keyboard tray i can get enough distance that even a 65" screen wont be a problem.

I'm about to buy the 65E for an existing HTPC. Need to get a 1070 or RX 480. My plan is have one HDMI from the GPU to the receiver and another HDMI from the receiver to the TV. This would require Nvidia digital audio and it sounds like, from your experience, the signal gets lost? This makes me nervous, since the trusted merchant I am buying from would only accept returns for physical damage, in exchange for a large discount. My receiver is a Denon X4200W that should pass through 4K 4:4:4 at 60 Hz. Wonder if I can bitstream from my motherboard onboard sound to the receiver (and still get uncompressed DTS-HD). 3.5 mm to HDMI cable? Then run a 2nd HDMI cable from the GPU to the receiver and disable Nvidia digital audio.

Does the mouse feel smooth on your desktop?

Can a bluetooth mouse and keyboard be plugged into the TV USB ports?

How many BT devices can be paired natively to the TV?

Edit: Don't think the motherboard trick would work. Maybe a DP to HDMI adapter from the GPU to the TV then another HDMI cable from the GPU to receiver, then enable extended display in control panel?

For the mouse to feel smooth on the desktop as on most pc monitors the tv has to be on game mode. In all other modes you will feel some lag.
The signal gets lost if digital audio is enabled and you turn the tv off and on while at 4:4:4 60hz.
There's others in other forums who used a display port to hdmi adapter and they didnt disable the digital audio, i couldnt test mine that arrived yesterday as i couldnt fit the hdmi cable in the adapter without breaking it, it felt cheaply made by the way.

About all other questions i hope someone else can chime in and help answer them, as i'm not familiar with receivers nor bluetooth stuff. I saw in the settings of the tv though some options for a wireless lg keyboard by the way,

For the others using a DP to HDMI adapter, did it fix the issue?

If not, this seems like a major nuisance, maybe a deal breaker, since HDMI is required for uncompressed audio. Wonder if the receiver would process the audio and only pass the video to the TV?

Edit: There is someone on AVS forum who is running it through a similar receiver with digital audio on and has the same problem. This sucks.

Edit 2: I just checked the digital audio options on my existing setup (1080P DLP, GTX 680, and X2000) and may figured out a workaround that would require a DP to HDMI adapter. I connected the 680 to the receiver with HDMI to HDMI. Then the receiver to the TV with HDMI. Then from the 680 to the TV (DVI to HDMI cable). Went to Nvidia -> setup multiple displays, selected clone. Went to digital audio and turned off audio on the direct connection to the TV. Then unplugged the HDMI from the receiver to the TV.

If you have integrated graphics then you may very well be able to use the on-board HDMI purely for audio.

On the OLED, did any of you check for dead pixels, or just let it go? I'm just wondering about replacement on one dead green, but it really irritates me, but not sure how many times I'd have to return to get a pixel defect free TV. (This is my second one, albeit I have an E6 instead of the c6p).
