Question for LG OLED TV Owners
« on: May 27, 2021, 10:47:56 PM »
Hi there.

I've been looking into LG OLED now that I have an Xbox Series X to play with.

However I'm concerned that they're bringing a hobbled C range model into the country.

On both the 48 and 55 inch models of the C1 range available here ( OLED48C1PVB & OLED55C1PVB ) the Refresh Rate is listed as 100Hz (as opposed to the 120 Hz Refresh Rate of e.g. The UK Model*)
(https://www.lg.com/za/tvs/lg-oled48c1pvb)
(https://www.lg.com/za/tvs/lg-oled55c1pvb)

UAE also has the 100 Hz Rated 'PVB' Model.
(https://www.lg.com/ae/tvs/lg-oled48c1pvb)

Whilst the UK gets the OLED48C15LA & OLED48C15LA models with 120 Hz Refresh Rate.

   (https://www.lg.com/uk/tvs/lg-oled48c15la)

Does anyone with a 2021 C1 'PVB' model mind checking for me whether it is indeed limited to 100Hz?
An Xbox or PS should show the true resolution capability.

If indeed hobbled this way it would be a real travesty imho.

No, it's not hobbled, they're just going by broadcast convention. US uses a 60Hz system, so that content is displayed at a refresh rate of 120Hz, for us it'd update at 100Hz.

For games or content that run at 60/120Hz, the TV would update at 120Hz, I guarantee there's no problem there.

Thank you Ken.
That's good to know.
I think I'll go with the C1 then.

(I was also considering the Samsung QN90A NeoQLED,
but it only has one HDMI 2.1 input, and it's more expensive too.
Both seem to have excellent picture quality.
The Samsung imho has a nicer stand design though.)

Unless you have a very bright living-room, the Samsung isn't as competitive PQ wise as you might think.

My 55-inch C9 was probably one of the best purchases I've ever made.

I went through three TV's and settled on the LG CX 55 OLED and am very happy with it. Good for gaming too although this is not my thing.
LG has now launched newer models so there should be deals to be had on the CX range.

Plus one.

Many a person that has been to my place is stunned by the picture quality, it took me a few weeks to stop being excited when i put the TV on.
For the love of music.

I have had my 65" OLED for 2 years now and I still get excited sometimes, especially when a movie has a scene with a colour scheme that you don't normally see on TV, like a rich orange sunset. Love it and worth every penny.

Love the OLED TV. Pity about that annoying "No Signal" message on startup...I see there is still no fix with this problem.

Screensavers were invented for a reason.  Have a look at burn in.

I'd very much recommend going OLED, as it does look amazing!  Just beware of the compromises.

I have a LG OLED 48" C1 as Computer screen and I must say best upgrade ever. I had the 55" CX but it was n tas too big for a PC screen. Best buy ever. If Everything goes well ill get the 65" for living room.

Exactly! Itís amazing and made me excited about 4K HDR content! I bought it as a desk screen for work and gaming (itís a deep desk thatís a good distance from the wall itís mounted on). After a week my wife and I bought a small sofa for the office to watch movies there, rather than the old and tired Samsung 4K TV in the living room.  ;D
