I hope they go for 4k, glassy and flat screen.
Can someone with hands on experience please tell me how much improvement is there in picture quality by going from IPS to OLED panel?
Day and night I would say, the image is much cleaner thanks to true blacks and better viewing angles and finally glassy screen, mate screen makes the image washed out.

Not really.

You love stating personal opinions as fact, don't you?

It's pretty easy to check on places like reddit and see what people think of their OLED displays and burn in seems extremely rare, and covered by warranty

@zlobby

I have waited years for this. I may say fuck it and do it. Screw the eye issue that PWM flicker causes me!

@TheLostSwede

THE GLORY DAYS OF GAMING HAVE ARRIVED! ALL HAIL! THE LAST DWARVES OF ERABOR! ALL HAIL THE ELVES OF THE LAST SHIP! ALL HAIL LG! FOR BRINGING GLORY TO THE REALM OF GAMING! ALL HAIL! THE BELLS TOLL ON THIS DAY!

I hope it's 1440p 27" :rockout: :rockout: :rockout: :rockout: :rockout: :rockout: :rockout:
There is also a negative subliminal effect on the brain. The flickering IS registered in the brain and causes it to work in ways we haven't evolved to. Most notably leads to fatigue and dizziness. There are few papers on long term effects that I know of, though.

These are some heavily misleading statements. They say ANY risk of burn-in has been mitigated, but there is still some risk. There is especially risk for W-OLED panels, as there have been plenty of stories of people using their C1s as a regular monitor and getting burn-in because they aren't using dark mode, putting their windows in different positions every time, auto-hiding taskbars, etc. When using a modern W-OLED TV *AS A TV*, it's fine, there won't be any major risk of burn-in. But when using them as monitors, there is a risk, and you have to form new usage habits and change some interface settings to mitigate that risk.

QD-OLED is said to be more burn-in resistant, but TVs and monitors using that technology haven't been around for long enough to put that to the test.

Give me a 3440x1440 OLED ultrawide LG. Quickly now. Waiting almost half my life for a decent monitor.
Why? When the Alienware is out now and is by far a superior panel. I have had mine on order now for it feels like a few months. Even Dell Nordic can't get me one until the beginning of November, but I will just stick it out and wait for that email with "Your package has been shipped" When the day FINALLY comes.

The alienware ultra wide, without Gsync ultimate will officially cost 1000-1100$ (november it releases I think)
Got a citation for this? As you can see from my previous post I already have the current model on order for quite some time and have no use for or even want the Gsync Module. If what you say is true I have to debate waiting out the release and diving back into the VERY long lineup again to get one that might be cheaper and definitely not having expensive features I don't want anyway...

AGAIN WITH THE 27”, pleaseeeeee stop. 32” 4K at reasonable price and these would be absolute hot cakes.

The options for 32” monitors and up are way to limited!
27" would be 1440p 240 Hz.

please 32" 4K so i can double up. 27" 1440p is all you need because at 4K you cant see anything except smaller icons and text.

I personally want something like a 27" 1440p 120Hz+ monitor.
*Observation* and *personal experience (s)* is not an opinion.
That is cute. You should google what opinion means before spouting this nonsense.

These companies really don't understand the PC monitor market. Who wants to use Windows and office apps on a 27" 4k monitor?

It's still just a rumour though.
27" isn't a rumor, it's been shown on the LG display roadmaps before. Bigger than that, sure.

In other news MSI had a stream in which they've shown their QD-OLED in more detail, it will include HDMI 2.1, USB-C with 65 W PD and DP-alt mode, KVM and a light sensor. No details on availability and price.

ALL OLED suffer from burn-in. Some manufacturers put it in the fine print, others don't. But it's there and some manufacturers use annoying (for me at least) tricks to avoid warranty claims.

Except the. Alienware OLED has built in anti burn in feature’s because it‘s actually a PC monitor. Has a short “pixel massage” setting it will ask to run after a certain amount of hours used then a full one that apparently takes about an hour to complete.

I disagree completely. What’s awful are 27” panels at 4K with microscopic icons and text. Then you get to deal with windows scaling and game interfaces looking terrible if you try to scale certain things.

27”, and anything below, at 4K is a bad experience imo. Larger panels up to 30-34” are fantastic for gaming and having enough screen real estate for photo/modeling work with a secondary monitor above or to the side.

I also don’t understand how consumers buying $800-$1400+ monitors end up not having room to accommodate a proper sized desk to fit such setups.

The 24”-27” range in the monitor market is so saturated already. Some competition in the larger monitor area would be wonderful because the prices in comparison are laughably bad.
I will say this, I haven’t used a 4K monitor before as GPUs haven’t been able to push the frame rates I prefer at that resolution. We’ll find out this generation if they can do 90 FPS+ in most games with max settings or not.

As for desk space (65x32”)… my 27s take up damn near all of my desk as is. 3 X 32” monitors, I’ll be in this bitch like IMAX theaters. Doesn’t seem like the way for me… we’ll see once I get eyes on a 27 & 32” 4K OLED monitors.

How is offering a proper solution to prevent burn in a “trick?”It’s what’s necessary to prevent your “sky is falling“ take on OLED…

It doesn't prevent it, it just delays it. Though I agree that anything that prolongs the life of your product is a good thing.

By the way, these anti burn-in measures essentially work by detecting the most "burnt-in" subpixels (they're more burnt-out but whatever), and then burning all the others so pixel burning happens more evenly. This means that over time your display will dim, but hopefully burn-in happens much more slowly. How much your display will dim over the course of, say, five or more years, obviously remains to be seen.
