Any good dumb OLEDs out there?

Is there such an animal as an OLED monitor, on the now smallish end of the size spectrum (in the 40" or so range), and either dumb or able to set to just be a display, and without speakers? I've got a nice 5.1.2 setup in a smallish room, currently using a cheap Sony HD as the monitor. There is no need for a screen that does anything but show the picture. The last thing I want is a screen that comes up with a menu advertising its own services. But it would be nice to go to higher resolution and gamut.

Didn't Dell / Alienware released one? Google it. Won't be cheap.

You're better of with a real 65" LG OLED, more cost effective.

55" is way too big for my living room, which is not a dedicated theater
room. I currently have a 40" TV on a stand that I wheel out to the middle of
the room, which works well for us. A sharper picture with more colors, if
realistic, would be a welcome improvement -- but only if it doesn't require
more real estate. And I've got a nice pre-pro, amps and speakers, and source
what we watch from a Roku and Blu-Ray player, so don't need smarts or
speakers in a screen at all. There are some 4k 43" computer monitors out
there, for instance from ViewSonic, but I suspect the lack of DRM support
would mean they wouldn't work with 4k content.

Here is one 43" TV with UHD (4k) and HDR. https://www.tclusa.com/products/home...mart-tv-43s517

It's not from their higher-end series, but those don't come in a 43" size. UHD (4k), HDR, Dolby Vision.

I dunno. After living with a 55" LG OLED for two years, it seems a little small. I confess that I'm not wheeling it around the living room.

I think there are a couple of OLED monitors (dell alienware) and laptops (lenovo) out there but they don't do HDR far as I know. The closest oled you will get to the one you're seeking is a 48" oled tv that will launch next year, you won't get a speaker-less tv, you can just ignore the tv speakers and continue using your surround sound system. The 48" will have all the picture advantages of the higher sized oled tv's and will be a noticeable improvement in resolution and color gamut over what you currently own.

Just get an OLED TV and don't connect to the internet. You now have a "dumb" monitor.

Technically a 55” B8 for less than $998 which some Black Friday deals were that’s a STEAL considering its size. And value and pedigree if you want to use it as a monitor. Keeping in Mind it’s has 4 HDMI 2.1 ports and GSYNC and HDR10 and more meets all the check lists. When some 34” ASUS Gaming” monitors with 384 Local dining zones want for a LCD PC Monitor and cost $1,200

So far there seems to be 55, 65, 77 and 88" OLED TVs (all with LG panels) and Dell Alienware has a monitor version with the 55" LG panel, as well as some 21.6" or so monitors from Asus and others which I believe are using the inkjet printed OLED panels from JOLED or whatever they are currently called. And there is the 30" very expensive Dell OLED monitor UP3017Q (not to be confused with the IPS based UP3017) which might actually be discontinued.

A 48" OLED with an LG panel is expected sometime in 2020. The OP might just have to wait. There may also be a computer monitor in the30-40" range using AMOLED and not an LG WOLED panel.
