[Engadget] Alienware's 55-inch 4K OLED gaming monitor is pure eye candy

Quote:
So what makes this Alienware display different than a typical OLED TV? For one, it supports a variable refresh rate all the way to its maximum 120Hz refresh rate, whereas many TVs are locked to 120Hz if they support it. Additionally, it features a DisplayPort 1.4 connection, which supports 4K all the way up to its high refresh rate.
It looks like LG's 2019 OLEDs will have some real competition.

This might be my next TV. I wish they offered it in a 65 inch model though.

As a TV 65 or higher would be nice, but for a monitor, if you are sitting close, I find higher than 55 to make my head swivel too much in games.

Bad pixel density. Which is fine for console gaming. Which can't even push 4k anyways. But for PC gaming ill pass. But Dell makes some good quality monitors. So it probably has good build quality.

Not before they go down to a reasonable 32" or lower size

LG 55C8 is 1899$ on Amazon, 55B8 is 1699$ and this is 2k18 panels. 2000-2500 is probably the lowest Dell will go.

Is it confirmed to be using LG's panel? It's possible this could be using JOLED's 54" (55"-ish...) 4K120 panel. If that were the case, prices could end up going down.
