    Asus is just quoting data sheet specs from the panel manufacturer (you can tell based on their contrast specification). C2 in SDR is capable of 180nits full field and only gets gimped in HDR. We will have to see for certain when its actually...

    Not all AR coatings are created equal. Like I said its not that bad and no where near your typical thick gross AG coating. You can easily see yourself reflected on these although its slightly diffuse and not the mirror like reflection I see on my...

    It's really not that bad. I got to see a 48GQ900 at a friends house expecting the worst but it ended up convincing me to buy the PG42UQ when its released.

    Um did you even watch the video? The top USB port is right beside the webcam/camera/tripod threaded insert to conveniently attach said accesory without having to dangle a USB cable down. There are other USB ports where the rest of the IO is...

    That's what I saw too sometimes while other times more resolutions were available depending on reboot. Needs a firmware update but also please don't tell me you intend to use this thing at 1440p.

    I think prior generations had far more noticeable ABL in games/movies. On my C1 and C2 I don't see any ABL basically ever. You have to keep in mind that most of the time HDR is pretty low APL so of course in worst case scenario a games skybox +...

    TBH I don't think it will really get substantially brighter because the panels are limited by the pixel size relative to the larger models They are really only advertising 900nits on a 3% window but that is a pretty irrelevant window size. 10%...

    You should read a few pages back where I posted measurements between modes from both Rtings and TFTCentral and information regarding this. Game Optimizer is 25-35nits less bright than Standard. You do take a minor input lag penalty for not using...

    It could be a driver or monitor firmware that needs updating.

    I tried HDMI on the current 1003 firmware on a friends monitor and Gsync was bugged at 240hz. At 120hz it worked but setting the monitor to 240hz made Gsync vanish. On my 1002 firmware monitor HDMI was pretty wonky and would just blank out at...

    Looks like the normal PG series 3 year warranty from Asus does not apply to their OLED's. You get 2 years instead which is still not bad. I think it will land at $1399 US here. Maybe $1499.

    I'll give you uniformity although it's a non issue for me personally on the C2 but even before Rtings measured 430nits in real content highlights on the AW, I said the C2 looks brighter and it does. No game content I tried made the color volume...

    Rtings early test results for the G8 look identical to the G7 when it comes to HDR. Check out the macro shot of the subpixel layout to see how disgusting the AR coating is. Quantum HDR400:

    You need serious help.

    Do you guys prefer you're DSE in splotches all over the screen or just half the screen all together?

    Oh yeah but mine is no where near as bad as the 4 of his. His are the size of a 100 pixel cluster where as mine is like 2-3 pixels in circumference. I just think its obnoxious that something like that gets shipped.

    I'm really interested to see how the A90K performs compared to the C2. EDIT: I wonder if it fits the size/weight limits for a Taobao agent to drop ship. They are gouging hard, started at the equivalent of $1400 USD and its now north of $1700...

    The QC on these monitors is utter and absolute trash. My friend is on the 4th replacement from Amazon all with one or two of these giant dust particles or blemishes in the AR. This one has it dead center so when he scrolls its a disaster. Also...

    Well during Amazon prime day it qualified for the 25% off warehouse deals so you could get a used like new for $930ish which my friend did and it was just a unopened return. I think during black friday it will dip to $1099 or $999 new.

    After moving from the 48 to 42, yeah 48 is way too big. Soon as the 42 was on my desk it was a huge relief in usability.
