    High framerate and OLED

    It’s most likely a simple volume and product development cost issue. R&D is spread over units sold. The number of OLED PC size monitors sold is minuscule (to date) and until recently exclusively for professional use. The first higher than 60hz displays have been non monitor use ironically...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Anyone who previously had issues with stutters or performance dips notice an improvement with new patches? I haven’t played in a bit because the uneven stutters and pauses were causing a lot of frustration so I decided to give it some time.

    Samsung showcases the first 240Hz OLED display for laptops

    Another press release says Q4 2022. No mention of QD OLED so I’m assuming this is from Samsung Display’s normal laptop OLED line which is also shipping 120hz OLED screens in some new Asus laptops, so things are coming along. Really interested to see how the 240hz panel measures and works, I...

    Monitors for software development

    I’m a developer and I have run multi monitor since it was first supported. My current setup is a 32” 4K plus a 16:10 in portrait mode. I still need the 2nd monitor to move docs and task panels to while I arrange the large primary 4k space for my IDE. At home I use a 42” 4K plus a 27” 1440p for...

    LG 42″ Bendable OLED Gaming Panel

    That is a panel from LG Display, the panel manufacturer, not LG electronics the monitor maker. So no product announcements yet that I can see, more of a “see what you could build” for all the companies that buy OLED panels from LGD (including LGE). That said I hope someone makes a monitor with...

    Can't understand why my 9 year old Sharp HD TV is still so much better in picture quality than my new Viewsonic 43" UHD monitor?

    Yup that’s an IPS and side be side with a VA you would probably notice the contrast difference. Now if you put the VA next to an OLED it may look a little washed out 😁

    Can't understand why my 9 year old Sharp HD TV is still so much better in picture quality than my new Viewsonic 43" UHD monitor?

    What Viewsonic model? It could be as simple as comparing a 1000:1 contrast IPS monitor to a 3000:1+ VA TV (probably also better dialed in color-wise out of the box) and finding the VA panel to have a punchier and possibly even more accurate picture.

    Samsung Odyssey 1440p VA monitors 240hz curved

    Does anyone have a specific / technical explanation for the scanlines being present on some monitors (beyond “limitations of VA tech”) or a link to an article/ video? I did not know about this and curious to learn more.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    1440p scaling is pretty decent on this. I usually use GpU scaling but I recently adjusted native res because Elden Eing stutter was driving me crazy and I was trying to turn off every gpu option to isolate it. I would use in game scaling options though they tend to be surprisingly good. Nvidia...

    New Iiyama 43" 4K G4380UHSU-B1 Red Eagle significantly undercuts price of FV43U

    Also differs from the others in not being quantum dot and HdR 400 instead of HDR 1000 which indicates no dimming features. Lower quoted contrast as well. Probably a fair price drop for those specs.

    Turning it off then on again: massive increase in smoothness / fps (LG 38GL950B)

    You could turn on the driver level gsync display indicator on and see if the green gsync text indicator only shows up after you turn the monitor off and on, to narrow in on gsync vs something else being the differentiator.

    Bigger monitor further away?

    As you get older it gets harder to maintain focus at closer distances but that sounds a bit far. Once you get to about three feet the benefit of being in the sweet spot should kick in.

    Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra as a 2nd display via SuperDisplay.... USB 2 vs USB 3

    I have had multiple Samsung OLEDs with zero burn in after 5+ years with one, but I have had both tablets develop issues with turning the screen on. I now have to turn them on twice sometime (i.e. turn it off, then turn it back on) and I expect eventually this thing will die because of the...

    Needing to find 34"-38" Monitor for Work (Coding)\Gaming\Movie Watching

    Ultrawides are (IMHO) not great for mixed movie watching. I'd pick a 4k 16:9 either 32" or 42". Gigabyte Aorus if you can swing it and have space or one of the Samsung 32" G series maybe. G-sync ultimate is nice (I have it on my 2nd monitor) but this one is G-sync compatible and I don't feel...
