    I maybe got a bit mixed with the 27" models coming out with low zone count backlights. Still, 16 edge lit zones seems like very low at this point. Here in Finland the PG32UQ is still at 1100 euros. I don't know what it was originally but...

    It is garbage tier when a lot of other displays are moving towards having some form of FALD, even if it's low zone counts like 32-96. Those just haven't fallen in price yet so the M32U hold a good value proposition. If it was 1100 euros like the...

    Damn it Jim, I'm a programmer, not a graphics artist! When most content I work with is made for the sRGB color space, wide gamut etc will just result in oversaturated colors. I have always calibrated my displays for sRGB at around 120 nits. That...

    Why PG32UQ or the MPG for work over e.g the M32U?
  • K
    Yeah over here in Finland it's been under 800 euros once and that started to be an appealing deal even with the drawbacks it has.

    So let's recap this thread a bit. What do you think are the current best 32", 4K high refresh rate displays on the market? What about if you ignore HDR performance and focus more on the desktop usage side?

    Linus has a somewhat crappy video of it up right now. He says the display cannot do multiple HDMI inputs split screen! Come on, that was the only way this would make sense!

    PG42UQ review: https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1Ft4y1G7tP 4K/138hz/12bit via HDMI. Achieves 968nits from 1-10% window but only at 10000k color temp. At D65 its roughly 50nits brighter than a C2 from 1-25% window range (750 10% and 390 25%)...

    That seems to be how Samsung curved displays are. The CRG9 seems to be an exception but it has much less curve so it at least looks more uniform to my eyes.

    Yeah price is ridiculous. You could buy 3 nice monitors for that price and have something better with more desktop space and resolution. At 8K res and this price I might be interested. Doesn't mean I'm not interested in seeing this thing in real...

    Seems like ASUS have tried to think of everything. The uniform brightness setting seems like a good way to avoid ABL in desktop use. Lack of BFI is a bummer but I guess that's on LG not wanting to support it anymore for reasons unknown. I found...

    To me the 42" LG is the better value. As you said, it doubles as a smart TV, it can be run as 16:9 or ultrawide. To me the AW still has too many quirks and the lack of firmware upgradebility is a huge minus as that means any software quirks can't...

    HDR is the best but also the hardest part of a monitor right now. Most of my posts are focused on HDR. It needs technology from other territories. Most of the problems you listed are caused by the local dimming backlight, not the panels. If the...
  • K
    I feel like you are putting HDR performance above basically everything else based on your posts. With a lot of these monitors costing anywhere between 1500-3000 euros depending on the make and model, you start to want it to perform at a top tier...

    Limited budget will most likely be the bigger problem here. I use a Samsung CRG9 super ultrawide for productivity which is effectively 2x 27" 1440p without bezels. It's not perfect but for me it works well and has both enough desktop space (with...

    No harm in waiting. The best discounts are usually in older monitors though so if you are looking for something made this year then at best you might find some small discounts.

    While things like flicker sensitivity can be highly personal, I have literally worked 8+ hour days with my LG CX 48" as a desktop monitor without ever experiencing eye strain with it, despite reviews reporting that it also flickers slightly at...

    There's rumors of a 49" QD-OLED, but it's yet not confirmed if it's a 16:9 4K TV or a 5120x1440 super ultrawide. But I would expect it will take a year or two before they will release a 42"-ish model and by that time LG could already be offering...

    kasakka replied to the thread LG 48CX.
    Yes, but on the LG OLEDs it still results in less accurate color. I think it has to do with running in a color space intended for HDR rather than sRGB. It's a visible difference but not something I would call a dealbreaker or anything, I can...

    I used SDR mode because it had more accurate colors and since I was mostly using SDR content using HDR mode made no real difference to me. But it's certainly an option that works fine as long as you set the SDR slider.
