    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I would've waited if my old tv/monitor hadn't started to crap out. The monitor space really sucks at the moment. Pretty much everything out there has some draw back or another.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I do get noticeable smearing of text when scrolling quickly. I'm willing to live with it, but I can see how it would be a deal breaker for some. I haven't done much gaming, but haven't seen any issues there. Just with text in normal usage. This is with the overdrive setting to balance.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    To my eye, the image quality is acceptable. I'm not the most discerning consumer of monitors, so I probably represent the mass market. The colors can be tweaked in various modes, and in some they are more vibrant than others. I tend to use the most dark mode for everyday use, as the brighter...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    So I've had this for about a week now (FWIW I paid $999) and here are my thoughts: The screen real estate is just about perfect for sitting a little over 3 feet away. Black text does smear if you quickly scroll through a page I don't notice any ghosting in gaming (overdrive set to Balance) I...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    You can get one of those fancy adapters and get 4k 120 Hz 4:4:4 but no VRR. I'm in the same boat, basically, so I went with the Aorus. I thought long and hard (giggity) about the CX 48. It's obviously a phenomenal display, but I don't want to have to worry about burn in and the 48" size is...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Alright, I ordered it. My samsung is on the way out and there aren't any stellar options in the 40-43" space. If the C1 42 were out that would be a no brainer, but this will have to do.

    LG 48CX

    So for those of you running with the adapter on an older RTX 2xxx series GPU, are you just running 4k 120 Hz HDR with vsync enabled? Perhaps a stupid question, but nobody specified vsync on or off.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    EDIT: nevermind. I found the sub-pixel rendering options in Kubuntu. When I get the monitor I'll start there. Any idea if there is a Linux equivalent? A quick google search didn't show anything ...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Not the person you're asking, but I'm eye balling one of these and my primary purpose is work. Gaming is a pretty distant 3rd on the list, behind work and movies / other video stuff. The reason I'm looking at it is that the extra screen real estate is clutch, and it can moonlight as a gaming...

    Sony 2021 TV Lineup

    From what I understand these don't support VRR, and aren't expected to do so until later in the year. I'd be leery of buying a product on the basis of expected features.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    From what I understand, you can get 120Hz 4:2:0 with VRR on the 2080Ti... so basically no HDR. With an adapter you can get 4k 120 Hz HDR but no VRR, or you can get 4k 60Hz HDR natively. I'm in a similar conundrum. I'm leaning towards the Aorus, as it's several hundred cheaper, no risk of burn...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    The tom's review indicates that movie content is displayed at 60hz instead of 24... how jarring is this in reality? Is it something to be concerned with if you use your monitor for watching movies?

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    He says "no linux support"... what does this mean exactly? If I plug it in under linux, it won't recognize the monitor? Or some of the features don't work under Linux? Edit: nevermind. He was talking about the software for changing settings vs. using the built in buttons. Listening...

    monitor wont always find an hdmi signal

    I'm having an issue ( in Linux ) where my computer is slow to find the input after power cycling the monitor. It only happened after installing the most recent drivers; I didn't have the problem on the older nvidia drivers. Perhaps try rolling back several iterations and see if that fixes the...

    What do people think of the Nvidia RTX Titan?

    I have both the RTX titan (a loaner card) and a pair of 2080Ti (my personal cards). The RTX titan, for gaming, is not a significant upgrade over the 2080Ti. Testing on Hunt showdown allowed me to turn up some AA at 4k, but that's about it in terms of real world impact.
