Up until about 4 years ago I was focused on getting the highest PPI possible, then I bought a 55" LG 4K OLED TV and ended up using it as my monitor. I never looked back. I converted my whole room to compensate for such a large display. I got a small desk on wheels and wall mounted the TV so I could sit as close or far from is as desired. A year later, I desired even bigger and upgraded to a newer 65" LG 4K OLED TV. I have since converted a few real life friends to swap from their monitors to "wall mounted OLED TV + desk on wheels" setups after they played on mine.
This week, news hit that the LG C9 OLED lineup will be getting GSYNC support... These TVs also have HDMI 2.1, which means they are capable of [email protected]
when we get HDMI 2.1 GPUs (right now they can do [email protected]
and [email protected]
). It seems PC gamers are switching more and more to OLED TVs. My friend just bought a 77" LG C9 OLED for monitor usage. Even I thought it'd be too big. I went over there to see it and play some games, and in the end I went home and bought one as well. Oof! I never expected such incredibly fast input lag from an OLED TV. 13ms at [email protected]

Crystal clear motion with infinite contrast and pitch dark blacks. PC gaming on a 77" 4K OLED at 7-8' away is absolutely jaw dropping. Something you really have to experience to understand, and really something you can't come back from...
It's strange that the 55" C9 isn't even that much more expensive than a high end gaming monitor. I feel if they don't start offering monitors with PQ to match these TVs, then OLED TVs will become very popular in PC gaming communities. Is anyone else noticing this shift?
(Since I know someone will ask.. I've had no issues with burn-in these last 4 years of using an OLED TV as a monitor. The issues are blown way out of proportion, to the point where I think most of those people claiming it's an issue are paid to spread that information. There were days I'd play WoW and Factorio for 12 hours and not get burn-in. However, I do not use desktop icons and I auto-hide my taskbar just to be safe.)
