LG CX 48” OLED Monitor Review (2020) – The ultimate large format gaming monitor?

We bought and tested the LG 48″ CX OLED as a computer monitor, and even though this is meant to be a TV, it offers impressive overall performance as a monitor. Its 4k resolution delivers an exceptionally clear image, the OLED technology displays perfect blacks, and it has very wide viewing angles. It’s an excellent choice for gaming because it has native FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) support and it’s G-SYNC compatible, the response time is near-instant, and it has a low input lag. Sadly, it doesn’t get very bright because of its aggressive automatic brightness limiter (ABL), but if you want to place it in a bright room, it has outstanding reflection handling. It’s a really well-built TV with a sleek design, but unlike most monitors, its stand doesn’t allow for adjustments.
