I’m in a similar position, I’m still using my 42” Panasonic G10 Plasma and don’t want a 55” set because I’m convinced that most of the stuff I watch will look worse on a 55” OLED. I will hold fire to see what other 48” OLEDs come out, but this LG 48” is a step in the right direction for my requirementsAs many have said before, this is aimed at people who can't fit a larger screen (or don't want a larger screen) but want an OLED. This means it could be more than a 55" and would still get some interest. I'm in this category as i have a 42" panny plasma from 2005 which has a huge frame around it and standing instructions from Mrs Meltonboy to "not get a bigger TV". The unit is smaller than current so happy days, assuming she doesn't spot my loop hole argument.
I'm very interested. My only hesitation is when would the price fall and if i can hold out (i've had the current set for 15 years so another 3 or 4 months won't hurt).
Good point about the content you watch affecting screen size. I’ll be interested to see how the Sony 48” compares to the LG as I keep coming back to 55” being too big for our room and I do watch quite a few classic (old) movies with pretty ropey image quality but then would like to see some 4K Netflix too.I’m in a similar position, I’m still using my 42” Panasonic G10 Plasma and don’t want a 55” set because I’m convinced that most of the stuff I watch will look worse on a 55” OLED.

Actually a lot of gamers and especially PC gamers have been waiting for the tv to be released because it offers a lot of bang for the money when you compare it to a similar priced pc monitors.Currently showing out of stock on the Curry's website.
I'm really not sure this is going to be primarily bought by gamers, it's a whacking great unit to be sat directly in front of, what with the burn in issues too, hours and hours of the same screen showing isn't gonna be good for it.
My mum wants a new TV to replace her aging Philips plasma. She said she wanted one like mine (Panny OLED) but the gap her TV stand is in will only allow a maximum of just over 50". Now this is (sort of) available I'll probably order one for her.
This could also be the bedroom TV that may will get to replace ageing 32"ers.
Well the 48" OLED has a much higher pixel density than the 55"so if should look super super sharp even from close up.Expensive but tempting for the advantages of OLED. I could just about fit a 55'' but weary of noticing upscaling. A Sony 49'' UHD I tried a few years ago had a softer picture with BD compared to a FHD screen. Perhaps a 48'' with superior upscaling will be fine with FHD sources? I could continue with watching 1080p content, check out UHD 4K and get the benefit of OLED.
Now that surprises me. I like OLED, I came to it from Plasma, being a very light gamer I wasn't worried about burn in, surely an OLED specifically as a gaming monitor would be a bad thing, purely from the burn in perspective?Actually a lot of gamers and especially PC gamers have been waiting for the tv to be released because it offers a lot of bang for the money when you compare it to a similar priced pc monitors.
I'm not being like that at all, I'm not anti OLED at all, I have a Panny OLED myself and am very pleased with it, zero burn in for me. Don't be so sensitive
It's a very valid point, and something many will want to consider, for reasons other than the simple degradation of picture for the user
Hmmm, a muppet am I? Please see me most recent reply to the other sensitive soul, I'm not anti-OLED at all, my post even included that I own one with zero criticism of it.Yeah sad. What a muppet he is. I'm loving my OLED. Can't ever go back. My Xbox looks incredible on it
Could you explain why it isn’t a valid point anymore?It is not a valid point anymore, probably hasn’t been since the 2018 models.
