I’m contemplating an upgrade from 1080p to 4k, and I think the LG CX is my choice for how feature-ready it is. But I have not seen any footage reviewing the set’s upscaling of 1080 and sub-1080p HD video game content.
Even if I were to get a PS5 or XSX, Nintendo Switch will continue to be my lead platform, and I do not want to sacrifice a nice pixel-fill I get with it on my 1080p Sony Bravia LED for Switch games. I would want nearest-neighbor upscaling rather than any sort of bilinear stuff which adds softness. And rocking two big screen HDTVs (one at 1080p and another at 4K) is simply not an option in my setup for space reasons.
Have any reviewers looked at the upscaling in depth? Alternatively, were any of you fine folk able to see differences?
Additionally, I imagine that colors will be far more accurate on an OLED screen, unless ABL is activated at times - which I am sure may actually occur when playing a lot of Nintendo’s bright cartoony games. Does this ever actually happen? It would really bum me out if a brightly saturated image caused the screen to randomly dim at times.
Even though I really want a nice OLED screen, when I play games on my launch Nintendo Switch’s screen, it reminds me that a well calibrated LED screen can produce marvelously accurate colors. Everything pops well and feel very balanced. It actually reminds me a bit of my old Panasonic Plasma (may she rest in peace). Anyway, Switch’s LED screen actually makes me feel like I shouldn’t rule out a QLED quite yet - they’re still a nice budget-friendly alternative that can do well in especially bright rooms.
Any thoughts on this? Are my concerns overblown? This will be my first OLED or 4k screen and I want to make sure there are no surprises that mainstream sites neglected to cover in their reviews.
