    If OLED monitors have HDR they would probably get burn-ins much faster

              Oled is the future of gaming because of the pixel response you can get ridicukous response time perfect blacks amazing color and great input lag so you get everything without giving up something its outstanding

                        Ive been using a 55" 4k tv as a monitor for years. Linus you're way behind the trend. You need a bigger desk though. Unfortunately for me a 1080ti only runs games at 4k at like 50ish fps average on medium-high settings. But i'm sure that's not an issue for linus as he probably has the ultimate in graphics processing.

                                                            It makes me happy that Linus uses a pair of Sennheiser's at his desk. It doesnt have to be HD800's. It doesn't have to be hooked up to a $1500 tube amp. But at least he is using decent headphones.

                                                                                            My 55" OLED went to my bedroom computer because it doesn't have HDR (it came out a month after I got the TV) and I put my PS4 on it for a bit; you HAVE to play Spider Man sitting that close! Even with the checkerboard fake 4K adding some unwanted grain, swinging through NY sitting 2 feet away from the screen is amazing!

                                                                                            As for the pixel response time mine has a 0.02ms pixel response and the difference it makes for sport is really noticeable.
