The UI is kind of clunky, and the Game Optimizer wants to hop to a totally different "Gamerz" interface that I don't care for, but you can turn a lot of that stuff off.
I don't use any of the smart features, and I keep the tv disconnected from the internet except if I decide to update the firmware as my previous tv decided to start serving me Toyota ads, and I don't want to run up against that again.
The one big con for me, and this won't affect most people, is that I have an AVR that's rather old, but works for most audio sources including streaming. However it doesn't support the 4k 120hz passthrough, so I have all the video source going to the tv first and use the ARC channel to send it back to the AVR. The hitch is that the TV will handle all the surround formats except DTS. It just ignores it. so most of my Blu-Rays (yes, I watch physical media) won't play audio in surround sound.
I still give it 5 stars, as my issue is not many people's issue and I know a couple other people with TVs like mine who either use a soundbar or something else rather than a 10 year old AVR or they just play streaming media.
It sits on a desk as a PC monitor, and the screen size is spot on. (The desk itself is 31" deep, so the OLED is a mere inches away from arms length.) I also use an LG OLED C9 as a television in the living room, so I knew what to expect as far as perfect black levels, color accuracy pop, great contrast, and subpar performance in bright surroundings.
The built-in speakers aren't much to write home about, but at my sitting distance from the C1, it comes across with depth and clarity. I was impressed. The metal stand deflects the output from the downward, Atmos drivers - and it actually works. (I can't say the same thing about the C9 at a viewing distance of six feet, but that's the main reason I picked up a soundbar for it.) Games and videos sound marvelous. Unfortunately, music comes across tinny and muddled.
The setting to edit input viewing mode, found in the Home Dashboard menu, allows you to switch between PC, Blu-Ray, streaming box, DVD, cable, etc. - and the picture and motion settings will adjust according to the source material. And it works very well. Throw in WiFi and four HDMI 2.1 ports, and I'm a content consumer.
I have only a couple of quibbles with the LG OLED48C1.
One. While the screen never dims while viewing/streaming content or playing video games, it does so when I'm using the TV as a PC monitor. This burn prevention setting kicks in whenever I'm writing for an extended time, whether it be a long email or this review (so far it hasn't, so maybe I should keep this short and sweet). You can get back to normal luminance, however, after a couple of taps on the Windows button of your keyboard. It's a peeve, but I get why it's there.
Two. (wait.... the screen just dimmed..... tapping.) If you use this with a version of Windows released before Windows 11, the default location of the Start Menu is a bit of a stretch to use. With this much screen real estate, it's uncomfortable. It's a tad like looking for the side view mirror in a car. (Luckily, Windows 11 has moved the menu to the center of the screen. Mac fans.. please, just don't.)
One star off for those reasons.
Still, the LG OLED48C1 is honestly the best and most impactful PC display I've ever used, and I doubt I'll ever go back to a traditional monitor again.
Quick Pros / Cons:
Amazing pixel response time and refresh rate (4k, 120hz)
Black blacks, bright whites (used in a lighting-controlled basement)
Amazing picture quality and colors
-- no smearing or smudging, no ghosting or any of that bad LCD visual artifacting
Great audio if you have the settings set right (see cons)
Great PPI for my distance from the screen (4k native, 100% scaling on Windows 11)
-- Text is small yet crisp
Awkward to move and I always worry about the thin top half. Always very careful when I move it.
Big base, which I understand, but that means I can't push it further back on my 6ftx3ft desk.
LG's garbage settings that keep forgetting themselves.
-- Audio is always set to Game Optimizer, which absolutely kills the audio. Have to switch it to Standard every time I turn the TV on
-- There is a Linus Tech Tips video on a workaround for this that makes the TV "sleep" or go into a low power mode instead of turning it off and on every time you are done with a session.
Coming from a 1440p display, trying to run a 4k 120hz display on a 3080 doesn't work the best. This TV is making me really want a new graphics card.
Overall, I love this and I can't imagine upgrading this any time soon (besides the software that I hope they fix via updates). I thought 48 inches would be too big for a monitor, as I was looking for a 40" to maybe 42" display, but it's perfect for 4k with no scaling. Big ole thumbs up LG!
