21:9 - What do you think?

I've been using a 55" LG OLED for over a year now, and am still very happy with it and impressed by the picture quality.

However, I recently got a 34" 21:9 3440x1440 Dell monitor in the office,...

He has good reasons for his suspicion. Broadcast HD as it is now is a joke.

Sorry but a mere doubling sounds pretty insignificant.

If the cap was 1 gb, then a 2 gb cap is gonna be problem too. If the cap was 100 gb then 200 gb will be a problem too for many.

It should be easy to test if break-in does anything to colors with a colormeter and some time.

Sensitivity to image retention is more tricky

Nobody knows. Nobody even knows if break in does anything...

I did break mine in (for like 50-100hours) just to feel on the safe side, and I have no issues with retention so I guess it doesn't hurt

I still think Apple will be the first to supply that market with OLEDs (with the panels made by LG/Samsung/Japan Display/whatever)

We'll find out wont we? I'm ready to bet that the OLEDs will actually do the best overall HDR even though the peak brightness might be 10-20% less than the LCDs.

I find it hard to be excited about a 'really good LCD'. The resolution advantage only does so much. The retina iMac at work is a significant step back from the OLED at home.

I like this in particular also. I'm really crossing my fingers that 75-80" will take over the 65 inchers role in the market.

High quality 4k content basically deserves to be displayed at that size.
