    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Enabling HDR on the monitor and not the OS doesn't make any sense. I assume it's just an OSD option that allows the monitor to accept HDR signals, whereas turning it off would force things to SDR (I don't know, this doesn't make much sense either). One thing's for sure, you can't magically have...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Unfortunately I don't have any experience with OLEDs of any sort. I have avoided them due to burn-in concerns as my work usage leaves static tools on screen for hours each day and I can't avoid this - save for moving the tools around and I'm not willing to constantly relearn my muscle memory for...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Knew someone would say it. ;) Can't avoid OLED popping up. No denying it's a panel imperfection but LCD image retention is usually a temp thing, it's not going to degrade my pixels over time and I'm not hiding my taskbar or changing any windowing habits.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    A few observations I figure are worth noting after owning a 50" QN94A for roughly 2 and a half months. I'm running with the input set to PC coupled with Game Mode as is the general recommendation for the best input latency. I'm still having to run at 60Hz, for the simple reason of having and...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Nothing of note. I've tried looking for the FALD grid patterns on various uniformity tests and I can't see it. Maybe I "won" the panel lottery because even on the one reviewed on RTINGS there's a small amount of it. I've been working on it and playing the PS5 for around a month now. Clear as...

    Hope the frustrating panel lottery works out for you this time, I'm still loving mine.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Yeah, seems they all have the yellow tinting to some extent. On my favoured dark themes it would show itself as darker stripes along the sides and across the top and bottom, culminating in darker corners. Most of the time I'd have to be looking for it but the uniformity test in that video shows...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I still haven't seen anything like that almost three weeks in. The problem I faced was either waiting another year for the 2022 range hoping for the 43" to be properly spec'd (it would be less than a year but waiting for the prices to settle would take another year, practically speaking) or...

    Samsung QN85A vs QN90A for desk monitor gaming display

    Interesting... it really does seem the different panel sizes give completely different experiences thanks to the mishmash of manufacturers taking part in the range. I'm not sure what sort of anti-reflective surface the 50" has but it's not showing any rainbowing artifacts on any content or the...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    My 50" QN94A doesn't have 100% perfect uniformity, nothing does. But I only see slight patching on grey screen tests, along with the token slightly darker corners. No evidence of FALD grid whatsoever no matter what I put on screen, and nowhere near the side tinting of the FV43U. I wouldn't be...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    And at least they're confirming the direct backlight. The number of people I've seen arguing it's edge-lit is baffling. I'd say the first sentence in their verdict sums it up rather well for me.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I'm amazed they consider the text clarity good overall. No reviewer has ever commented on the pixel interference issue and how it badly affects text. Guess they just can't see it and/or have never noticed it which blows my mind. I don't miss it as my primary at all, it was doing my head in. And...

    Samsung QN85A vs QN90A for desk monitor gaming display

    The 85A wasn't an option over the 90A for me because the 50" is already pushing the limits of my desk space and 55 would be too much. I also sit a bit close - again, 50" is already a bit silly to most people looking at my setup. I love it though. I tend to use it as 2x2 1080p unless I'm working...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Yeah, it's not for everyone like I said. I didn't think I could do 50" but I've made it work and I actually really like it. Completely understand why others wouldn't go this route though, I was very hesitant myself. Had the 43" version been spec'd the same I would have bought that one instead...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    After discovering at least two other 43" monitors from different manufacturers have the same flaw (presumably they all use the same panel supplier), I was reluctant to try another currently available 43" in case it was just a repeat of this nonsense. My argument has always been that a monitor...
