    27" 240hz OLED Monitor!!! (but there's a catch...)

    Except that very same QD-OLED is also limited to ~250 nits brightness for SDR. I would not be surprised if LG also adds a couple of different HDR modes like the AW QD-OLED for "True Black 400" DisplayHDR certification and a "about 1000 nits at peak brightness in small window sizes". For a...

    27" 240hz OLED Monitor!!! (but there's a catch...)

    200 nits is totally fine for SDR content in my experience. My Samsung G70A LCD is not the brightest, maxing out at around 400 nits but I run it at about 120 nits, day or night. I used the LG CX 48" at the same brightness level. For me this is totally ok because I can control for light in the...

    big jump in price from 4k to 5k. why?

    If you are using MacOS for your work, the issue is largely MacOS itself. It uses a very naive form of scaling. Just "target res x2 -> downscale to native". Running a 5K at its default a "looks like 2560x1440" setting is integer scalable so it looks nice and sharp. Do the same on a 4K and you end...

    big jump in price from 4k to 5k. why?

    Price. Pixel response time is even slightly worse than 60 Hz should have. Single USB-C input so can't be connected to more than one computer. No HDR support. The stand option thing is absolutely ridiculous. No reason to buy anything but the VESA mount model. Apart from 5K and high brightness...

    LG 48CX

    That's kind of why I was hoping they would focus on things like increased refresh rate and a fixed curve model. It's hard to sell a C3 if it's just the same thing as the C2 but more expensive unless they delay release until C2 supplies are depleted.

    LG 48CX

    When I moved, I was thinking of originally selling my CX 48" but it happened to be a great size for our small living room. But I was actually happy to go back to a smaller LCD for desktop use. The CX was good but I was often not using its full desktop, instead using maybe like the bottom 2/3rds...

    Samsung Odyssey ARK 55" 4K Gaming monitor

    Sounds to me they have zero interest in putting any work into it and will instead just use it as a concept to release a better version later based on feedback. This is honestly par for the course for any Samsung displays. They might get a few patches over a year but then tend to get replaced by...

    Best giant UHD HDR monitor like AORUS FO48U but without burn-in issues?

    I've literally used the CX 48" for two years as a desktop display. ~8+ hours 5 days a week for work, personal use on top of that. Still no burn in, it works fine in my living room. It's a good idea to hide taskbar/dock/topbar and to use dark modes where available. You get used to this and...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    Was real tempted to get the G8 at 999 euros on sale but I think I'm going to pass and wait until CES to see if there's something better in the pipeline.

    MSi 49" Ultrawide 240Hz QD-OLED

    So far Samsung has not been interested in making either of those form factors. Honestly 3840x1600 seems pretty much dead at this point and manufacturers will just eventually make better 5120x2160 40" displays. Well, at least I hope they do. Samsung factory setup probably allows making...

    4k monitor for wife - Blender/Zbrush and light gaming

    I'd probably just go for the Gigabyte M32U for a 32" model. Gigabyte M28U or Samsung G70A for 28" model. Both should be a good chunk cheaper than the Asus models and perform similarly.

    MSi 49" Ultrawide 240Hz QD-OLED

    HDMI 2.1 should be fine when paired with DSC. Even a 2x ratio compression could deliver 7680x2160 10-bit 144 Hz with a 48 Gbps port. At 3x compression 40 GBps port would still do probably like 180 Hz. Still a bit pissed off about the lack of DP 2.1 support though. With the ridiculous speeds of...

    MSi 49" Ultrawide 240Hz QD-OLED

    For sake of discussion, here's a little chart of HDR peak brightness between different panel tech using numbers from TFT Central reviews. I expect MSI will have similar performance to Dell AW3423DW. Window size % Dell AW3423DW (Samsung QD-OLED) ASUS PG42UQ (LG OLED) Samsung Neo G8 (Samsung...
