Every day Offers: Worth Drop on the 48-Inch LG CX Sequence OLED 4K TV (The Greatest Gaming Monitor on the Market)

Newegg is offering price drops on 2020 LG CX series OLED 4K TVs. In addition to these price drops, they’ve included bonus Newegg gift cards on select models. We’ve seen these deals on the 55″, 65″, and 77″ fairly consistently in the past, but we’ve almost never seen one for the 48″ monitor. In fact, LG is so reluctant to lower the price on the 48″ that several times the 55″ has been even cheaper. But the fact remains: the 48″ is THE size to get if you want to use this as a gaming monitor.

After 6 months of using the LG CX 48″ OLED TV as my primary gaming monitor, I still firmly believe that this 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.
