    There are good “glossy” AR coatings that are not matte and like another poster mentioned are used on high end Samsung TVs, that let you have your cake and eat it too. Never seen it used on a monitor though..

    The OP said they have a 980 as backup.

    Dell has several warranty levels from depot service to advanced exchange. Not sure what their monitors come with by default now but it’s worth reading the fine print. The “good” warranties are very good.

    Interestingly, when Samsung flew out Linus from LTT to show them QD OLED I’m pretty sire I heard him say the monitor they used to show off QD OLED was the Alienware. Hopefully that means it’s pretty solid for a press outing.

    OK, but these monitors have “ROG Swift” branding and probably won’t be a “banger of a deal”.

    Didn’t Linus stack two super curved monitors one above the other? IMHO you end up with something a lot like a single 49” normal aspect ratio monitor in that case just a little taller/ higher res. I think for dual monitor ultra wide monitors make...

    Why not extend the AC end? Taking apart the adapter or messing with a dc extender seems like a lot of hassle and risk when AC extension cords are common and safe.

    Does it feel like it’s skipping frames in a smooth scroll in an actual game? It should be quite obvious.

    Same here re: DP cable - running this at 4k144. I also used a HDMI 2.1 connection for testing but disconnected it after a bit, since I need the HDMI output for a second display.

    The quietest keyboards will be like the Logitech above using rubber dome or scissor type switches as you see in most laptops . Not my favorite but some people flat out prefer them. To each their own.

    You could also try increasing FoV in game since that is something you’re used to at a certain size. A slightly higher FOV may make it feel like you “zoomed out” a little.

    I had this exact monitor new and used it for years. At some point the higher resolutions don’t look that great due to dot pitch, going by memory.

    Nvidia supports FSR-like upscaling at the driver level without direct game support now for non DLSS games.

    I thought I read they were doing away with the FB account requirement.

    HDR performance on the 32EP950 is better than on the PA32UCG in all respects other than that it has lower peak brightness. The issues with the desktop on the PA32UCG are caused by the local dimming algorithm, not SDR vs HDR. I just disable local...

    Have the 32EP950. Can confirm. In 90% of mixed content (neither super dark nor super bright) it is on par with the PG27UQ. In dark content, it crushes the PG27UQ (no halo, bloom, etc obviously). I can see detail in dark HDR content that is...

    Nice impressions and details - thanks guys.

    Innolux talked about a 32” 144 dual cell LCD with effectively 2 million zones (“MEGAZONE”) but never showed a prototype AFAIK. There are 60hz pro monitors with this capability but too slow for gaming...

    Panel lotteries are no fun, glad some of you got good units at 50”.

    I agree with the evaluation that they likely meant it’s a virtual 1gb at a pre-driver level until OS loads drivers. Doesn’t it have quad channel LpDDR5 @5500MT ? That’s way more than other off the shelf APUs support and explains the performance.
