55", now we're talking...what monitor is that?  I might just upgrade.  43" is getting small :)

Edit: wait, that's probaly  a telly, not a monitor, correct?  I mean having "netflix" and youtube" in the spec is bad, very bad.  Also the 10bit ... what's that? colour depth?  It's a bit backwards for colour representation, no?

You are right it is a TV, I was just wondering what the refresh rate of OLED panels was compared to LCDs. I only recently bought a LG 55 4k 200hz  TV to use as my monitor ( very happy with it overall) photo realistic graphics ,but I notice a bit of blur on occasion  :(  an OLED panel would stop that  :) :)

You'd have a seizure sitting in front of my 22" monitors Bird. ;D
You might need a magnifying glass to see them.

After the discussion last night I thought I would post the pics of my view. My actual wheel sits where it would IRL in relation to the dash.

Well, there's a reason  monitors and are sold separately, and not just marketing - altho this may change in the future.
Apparently TVs have lower requirements on the picture representation side.  Side effects maybe ghosting, blurring, worse colour representation, cropping, etc...

I'd not use a telly as a monitor until this changes - but then I work at the computer all day.
