    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    HDR isn't about eye-searing brightness though, it's about contrast. Obviously if you side-by-side a blown-out FALD next to an OLED, the FALD is going to look more impactful. Your eyes are going to be adjusted for the brighter display. But the actual contrast is worse. There's really no point to...

    Odyssey OLED G8: Official Introduction | 34" Samsung OLED

    Neither of those numbers are anywhere near correct. The problem with LCDs is their response times are heavily inconsistent, and vary widely depending on what color they transition to and from. Even fast 240hz ones typically have >10ms response times for some colors. This will produce awful...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    My monitor has 0 burn-in (checked on full screen grey, yellow, and red, not on content like some kind of idiot...) and I've been using it with 0 precautions for 4.5 months. I don't hide the taskbar, and I do work 8-10 hours per day plus some gaming and other stuff, probably 10-12 hours a day...

    Literally anyone can do this. It's the easiest thing in the world. If you can't, I'm sorry you have an eyesight problem, maybe get that checked out. Also, not sure why you keep saying 250 nits. That's more than double the normal calibration standard of 80-120 nits and using a screen at 250 nits...

    Just don't feed these types of trolls lol.

    The much higher ABL threshold is one of the main reasons this monitor is better than any of the LG panels.

    There's nothing to forget because that isn't true at all. It's very misleading to call slight brightness dimming "flicker". LCD backlight PWM flicker is completely different. Slight brightness dimming with refresh rate is also common to all types of OLED and nobody is complaining about LG OLEDs...

    lolwut. MiniLED is more like half-crippled LCD instead of completely crippled standard LCD. It still has the same response time issues(often worse in fact because making the miniLEDs have good latency is expensive and hard, see all the massively overpriced gsync ultimate lcds) and the black...

    Commercial or Comsumer Grade?

    Commercial LCDs are designed to optimize brightness and lifespan, and that's literally it. Their image quality is garbage compared to any of the higher end consumer displays. There's really no point to even looking at them.

    LG 27 " OLED and 31.5" 4K

    These monitors already exist, I don't really know what they've changed if anything. It seems like they might just have added built-in colorimeters or something. Anyway, it's still 60hz crap which is pretty uninteresting IMO.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    I'm just microfibering it and using monitor wipes. No damage caused that I've seen. My screen did come with some of the light coating scratches that others have pointed out, but they're only in the top left part and they're completely invisible unless you shine a flashlight directly on the...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    I think the text clarity "issue" on OLEDs is massively overblown. When I got my QD-OLED, first thing I did was check text on a variety of sizes and background colors. The only time I'd say it was even really noticeable was with very tiny text sizes. Was there an improvement using the ClearType...

    To be clear, it works fine for me with hardware acceleration on. I don't know why people are having that problem, but it's not purely because of the display. If that option helps, then it's probably some kind of driver issue.

    Edge case low framerate VRR flicker and stuff like that is super common to all monitors and not really what I'd describe as a significant(or even worth talking about) flicker problem, but OK lol. I run Slack on Win10 and even with a game in windowed mode(w/Gsync Windowed enabled) and Slack on...
