[Amazon.ca] LG LG OLED48CX 48" 4K UHD Smart OLED TV 2020 Model $1839.14

Hot hot hot!
Lowest ever!

Be aware that CX only has *40gbps HDMI 2.1*

Sold by Amazon

It‘s really good to see the price of 48” is lower than 55”.

Maybe we will see 77” deal soon.

I'm seeing the 48 as 2099. Oddly the 55 is cheaper at 1999.

I ordered one, judging by the ship date I could probably cancel before they ship if we see the black Friday deals are better

Lol to people down voting? Read the full op post maybe?

Also 48CX is expensive than 55CX due to the panel cutting.

Lowest ever still = insane in the membrane pricing. It's good to see it cheaper than the 55"? Ya think? LOL. Even at this price the 55" is what like $100 more? This model is nearly totally pointless. If they can't get the price down it's gonna be a niche product for a year, two tops, and then get discontinued.

This would be like an X1 selling for $1000 less than an X5 and people thinking it's a "deal" :facepalm:

Why 48 is pricer than 55:


Lots of people buy CX48 because it is the best “cheap” 4K monitor right now.

Arguably, the maximum benefit from a monitor that size is 6x quadrants of screen real estate, simulating six separate monitors.

At 48", each of the 6 quadrants is too small, while at 55" they're just right.

55" is also the maximum comfortable size for 4K from 3' to 4' away. Go higher, and you'll want 8K.

Does the 55 have the protrusion at the bottom back? Wouldn't even be able to close wall mount the 48, not sure what's up with that.

Yes, OOS.
But it's amazon. Like the previous Hisense deals, keep an eye on it.

It will come back randomly.

Oh I know why it is, that's not what I'm talking about. Do you think the average Joe or Jane and their kids tha walks into store give a shit why it's "supposed to be" more expensive? If you said yes, then I'd like some of what you're on :lol: All people are going to see, is a smaller TV at a higher price and be like, "why would I buy that?" And even the salesperson would have to say, "yeah it doesn't really make any sense for most people." The only things that would come into play here is if you were both super OLED fanboy and also had strict size constraints at the same time; that or, you're a computer nerd with money to spend. Apart from that nobody gives a damn that the 48" is cut differently or is edge cut or bowl cut or crinkle cut? LOL they have not a care in the world for that.

In an age where 65" is considered small for a TV; many people going for 75"+ TVs, and people in general not buying anything less than 55" at any time for a main TV, nobody is gonna give this a secondly look except for the aforementioned niches. People buying bedroom, third room, etc. TVs are also usually not going to be spending OLED money on them (unless again they are super fanboys or have money to burn), so a smaller OLED at this price makes little market sense. What I mean is, OLEDs are still expensive in relative terms but they are still quite acceptable for many for primary/main-room TVs, sure. But few people buy 48" main room TVs these days and few are going to spend this money on additional-room TVs (they could but it's not a high number of people in relative terms).

"Lots" is a nice weasel word but it is not quantitative or even relative to anything. Lots compared to what? People buying LCD monitors? LOL as. if.

It's possible but doubtful, the computer nerds with $2k to spend on a monitor and the fanboys with limited space, are going to hold up the market on this TV for very long. If they can get the cost down via other ways then perhaps it'll gain some sales numbers but for now they're not going to sell many relative to the other models.

Linus may make it out to be the end all and be all of monitors but this is a guy whining about how a 1440p monitor was "slumming it" and only marginally acceptable for "productivity" :lol: Meanwhile probably 80% of the working world is using 20-24" 1080p monitors because companies are not typically spending a thousand bucks plus per employee on monitors...and those people are all still productive enough to remain employed.

I am not saying you are wrong.
The cost of 48inch OLED is expensive than the 55inch is a fact. It is not a marketing strategy.

I don't know why "computer nerds" couldn't have $2k to spend on a monitor.

I don't watch a lot of YouTube videos, but here are some popular ones.
Hope you will understand why 48CX is so popular.









For monitor, it is not the larger the better. You have to consider the PPI because you will sit close to it.

It is an expensive TV, but it is a cheap monitor.

You're right. It's certainly not lots in that sense. But it is BY FAR the cheapest and best bang-for-your-buck 4k HDR GAMING monitor. In that comparison we have:
- Acer Predator X27 Pbmiphzx at $2,199.99
- Acer Predator X35 bmiphzx at $3,308.98
- ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ at $3,399.99
- ASUS ROG Swift PG43UQ at $1,999.99
etc...

The only comparable gaming monitors in price and specs are the Samsung QLED Gaming Monitors but a quick search online shows how they are having massive QC issues which may not be fixed in the near future/ever and they still cost around $1,500.
