Daily Deals: Price Drop on the 48-Inch LG CX and C1 Series OLED 4K TVs (The Best Gaming Monitors on the Market) | IGN

If you’re hunting for a deal on a top-end gaming computer, then today you are in luck. Amazon is offering the 2020 LG CX series and the 2021 LG C1 series 48″ OLED 4K TVx for the lowest prices we’ve ever seen. The other bigger sizes are on sale too but the fact remains: the 48″ is THE size to get if you want to use this as a PC gaming monitor.

After 8 months of using the LG CX 48″ OLED TV as my primary gaming monitor, I still firmly believe that this (along with the newer C1 model below) is the best gaming monitor you can buy right now, especially if you have an RTX 30 series video card. Both the CX OLED and RTX 30 series cards support HDMI 2.1, so you can output 4K at 120Hz. The LG CX also supports 4:4:4 chroma at 4K and G-SYNC technology. The OLED panel blows away any IPS, VA, or TN monitor in terms of black levels and color rendition, sub-1ms response times, and plenty of brightness for true HDR. There really isn’t any disadvantage of OLED TVs in terms of pure image quality.

One disadvantage of OLEDs is a higher chance of burn-in with static images; that said, LG OLED TVs have been out for 9 years now and there are many built-in features that are designed to prevent this. There are plenty of good recent tests that show that burn-in is a negligible issue with regular use. Unfortunately, I’m an outlier; I’ve used my monitor for at least 12 hours per day for 6 months (that’s at least 2,000 hours) and I have yet to notice any burn-in problems. I haven’t heard of many first-hand reports of other PC gamers who’ve experienced this problem, either.

At this price point, the CX OLED competes with the highest end gaming monitors from Samsung, Asus, Acer, and even LG themselves. Of course, this “monitor” also doubles up as an amazing 4K HDR TV. Like the other models in the CX lineup, the 48″ features the excellent webOS Smart TV software, includes a handy remote, and sports surprisingly capable built-in speakers.

LG has somehow done it again; the new 2021 C1-series OLED TV look even better than last year’s CX (although not by much). Last year, the CX models were considered one of the absolute best TVs on the market. Unlike Sony and Vizio, LG now has several generations of updates under its belt, and its well-oiled OLED TVs overcome pretty much all of the OLED pitfalls while incrementally improving its major advantages. The LG C1-series OLED TV features an upgraded A9 Gen 4 processor that delivers slightly better image quality, better 4K scaling, and improved audio handling as well as a facelift of its webOS smart TV interface. This is the first time we’ve ever seen the 48″ model on sale. Right now it’s only $150 more than the CX model so it’s up to you whether or not you want something a tad more future-proofed.
