It’s happened to all of us. The desire to connect your sophisticated gaming setup to your TV or bed so you can play games away from your computer while lounging on the sofa or in bed using a wireless controller. This Newegg bargain for a 48-inch 4K OLED beauty for under $800 could just be the ticket to living your dream.
There is a 48-inch 4K OLED gaming monitor from Aorus that normally costs $1,500, but with a discount, coupon code (FEB4SALE at checkout), and mail-in rebate, you can get it for only $800. However, in order for the reimbursement to be effective, you must purchase the monitor by February 28th.
If you don’t take the rebate, $1,000 is still a good price for a large, vivid gaming display. This TV offers all of the features found in the finest gaming televisions, plus a few more. If you can find a 4K OLED monitor that runs at 120Hz (through Displayport), you’ll be able to make the most of your new video card.
The F048U also has a KVM switch, allowing you to easily connect peripherals such as a keyboard and mouse. It’s a fantastic gaming display that also doubles as a television. If you want to use this to replace your desktop monitor, make sure you have adequate space and sit far enough back to avoid hurting your neck.
The problem is that, despite its appearance, this Gigabyte monitor is not a television. There are no tuners or streaming applications, so if this is going to be in your living room, you might want to invest in a streaming device like a Chromecast or Roku.
If you want to connect your PS5 or Xbox Series X to this panel, you’ll probably have to settle for 4K at 60Hz because the two 2.1 HMDI ports on this display are only 24 Gps, which might cause issues with your consoles. But, for a few hundred dollars less than those TVs, this may be enough to persuade you to make the sacrifice.
With OLEDs, there’s always the potential of burn-in, so avoid leaving static pictures on the screen for too long. If you’re not using it, turn it off or set it to auto-dimming.
