    I dunno if ABSL can be disabled on the A90K because that alone would make it a deal breaker.

    Pretty sure they're using DSC to accomplish 138hz so I think it will be fine.

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

    This news is probably earth shattering to you but everyone is different.

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

    There is variation in the noise volume and noise quality between monitors (bearings, etc). I think the noise is acceptable although mine was easily audible from my seating position and not the put my ear to the back panel to hear it type like the PG32UQX I had. A lot of people make a big fuss...

    I hope these don't disable VRR when set to 138hz. Nvidia just added the PG48UQ to its Gsync Compatible list with the latest driver and it only shows up to 120hz.

    I couldn't handle the PPI or in game image quality downgrade coming from 4K. 1440p looks comparatively terrible next to 4K in games especially foliage and stuff.

    TV manufacturers don't care about Vesa DisplayHDR but besides that, yes it wouldn't even satisfy DisplayHDR 400 True Black because of the fullscreen long duration test. Full field brightness is pretty irrelevant for HDR.

    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 measured. I'm pretty optimistic.

    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 C2. Here's a low bitrate screen cap of a guy who...

    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. Lastly, who the hell is attaching external HDD's to...

    Odyssey Neo G8 - 4K 240 Hz 32" Quantum Mini LED

    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.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    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 + desert environment expose OLED's limitation but the...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    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% and 25% windows may get like 30-50nits improvement...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    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 Game Optimizer but its only an additional 4-5ms in...
