LG C1 OLED TV Evaluation (2022)

With colour accuracy out of the way in which, it’s time to place the LG C1 OLED TV by a lot of totally different gaming eventualities to see the way it stacks up in pixel response, enter lag, and general responsiveness. 

It’s price mentioning that, whereas this panel isn’t tailor-made particularly for gaming, its quick 120Hz refresh fee ought to assist to ship a superb general expertise. Higher nonetheless, with a lightning-quick response time, we must always see very restricted ghosting, smearing, or overshoot whereas gaming.

Aggressive gaming

I do know, this monitor isn’t precisely tailor-made in the direction of aggressive video games. Nonetheless, by testing video games like CS:GO, COD, PUBG, we robotically get a greater understanding of how the TV handles fast-moving photographs and perceived blur.

I loaded CS:GO and my first impressions have been very optimistic. Perceived blur was very low and common gameplay felt extremely sharp, even when within the warmth of battle. Basic image high quality was completely very good and I noticed completely no indicators of overshoot, ghosting, or smearing.

I rapidly loaded COD and the visible efficiency was very related. COD is arguably a sooner title than CS:GO, so there was an opportunity that some blur would creep into the efficiency. Nonetheless, that wasn’t the case. Total, I used to be extremely impressed with the efficiency of the LG C1 when perceived blur is usually a difficulty.

Basic gaming

I wasted no time and loaded up a couple of less-competitive titles to get a really feel for the panel’s immersive qualities and common colour efficiency. Shadow of The Tomb Raider was the primary sport we loaded and it’s protected to say I used to be once more, extraordinarily impressed. Visually, the sport regarded completely gorgeous. After all, we enabled G-Sync and HDR for SOTTR and the outcomes have been very good.

Picture high quality was sensational in single-player titles with no smearing, ghosting, or screen-tear to be discovered. Colours popped due to the extensive colour gamut and HDR utilization. I in contrast the visible efficiency of the panel with and with out HDR, and HDR-enabled was the clear winner. The OLED panel provided up extremely deep blacks that gave the picture a depth of realism that non-OLED shows merely can’t replicate. HDR did supply further element in extraordinarily vivid areas as effectively (like trying on the solar on SOTTR) however a scarcity of peak brightness did restrict the element that could possibly be proven.

Whereas this all sounds nice, the elephant within the room is the demand that 4K display screen decision places in your {hardware}. I’m working an RTX 3070 with a Ryzen 5600X and it typically struggled to supply 100 FPS in lots of titles. Regardless of this being the case, G-Sync nonetheless helped to supply a tear-free expertise, even when down at 30 FPS or so. Finally, if you wish to get the best possible out of this TV, you’ll want an honest PC setup to play the most recent AAA titles.

Content material consumption

Clearly, with this being a TV we didn’t overlook the overall picture efficiency when watching films and TV reveals. For me, that is the place the TV was most spectacular, providing gorgeous picture high quality and immersion. Like I’ve simply talked about, the inky blacks and infinite distinction ratio made watching sure content material an actual pleasure, with movies depicting area or wildlife trying particularly sharp.

I’ve been utilizing this TV now for about 10 days and I haven’t had any points utilizing it as my main monitor. Granted, there’s a interval the place it’s worthwhile to get used to utilizing a panel of this measurement, however that doesn’t take too lengthy – particularly when sat on the appropriate distance. It’s price mentioning that in case you do plan on utilizing this for a compute monitor, you’ll probably want a really giant desk or robust VESA mount to perform the really useful sitting distance. For this TV, the really useful sitting distance is 1.5 – 2 instances the display screen measurement – so roughly 6 ft. That mentioned, I used to be sitting round 4 ft away from this panel and didn’t expertise any neck or eye discomfort whereas doing so.
