    OLED - 32" 4K 144Hz Monitor

    4k @ 32" is only ~138 ppi, so I don't think this has any real impact on these specific panels. I believe this is more relevant to extra high pixel density displays (300-400+) like in smartphones.

    I hope they drop a 42" soon, I noticed there was a press release about making 42" panels. A 42" 4k 120hz display would make a great monitor. 48" is a bit big. Now the problem is getting a hdmi 2.1 compatible video card for a reasonable price.

    LG 48CX

    Annoyingly, HDMI 2.0 still does not have the bandwidth to support 3840x1600@120hz. Where the hell is HDMI 2.1?

    Can you elaborate on this? Has there been news about 4k 120hz OLED displays that are planned for release in 2019?

    Alienware AW3418DW 34" Ultrawide

    Can anyone tell me if this display has ULMB, and will run in ULMB at 120hz? Thanks in advance.

    Monitor that is easier on the eyes for text?

    I personally think a larger display with the same resolution won't help at all, and in fact (at the same text size) it may be worse. I'd look for a 4K display, as text at any size is going to be more legible with higher pixel density.

    Fast display with good black levels

    If Panasonic can make a panel with 1,000,000:1 native contrast, why aren't they putting those panels in TV's?

    ASUS announces Swift PG27UQ 4K IPS 144Hz G-Sync HDR monitor

    Since it's FALD instead of edge lit, It's unlikely there will be issues with backlight bleed as we recognized it on their 27" IPS gsync panels in acer/asus displays. TV's with FALD have flashlighting issues inherent to the technology but I've never seen any serious edge bleed.

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    I think we're going to have to wait for panels coming out of China for any crowdfunding. I don't really think a crowdfunded display would be able to source panels from LG, Samsung, or Japan Display. I could be wrong though.

    8K TV's available worldwide in 2018

    You absolutely can, but many of the benefits going from 32" 4k to 32" 8k are going to be most obvious when it comes to text legibility. That isn't a bad thing, but take a look at your 350-400ppi smartphone and you'll realize that beyond that sort of density, there are very diminishing returns...

    ASUS announces Swift PG27UQ 4K IPS 144Hz G-Sync HDR monitor

    Interesting stuff here, but a little ambiguous. Does this imply some kind of full array local dimming?

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    My mind is consistently blown by people who don't even enable ULMB on ULMB capable displays. ULMB @ 120hz is much, much clearer than a regular "fast" LCD @ 165hz, at least on my 27" Acer.

    Dell UP3017Q - 4K 120HZ Oled 30"

    What? This sounds a little too good to be true? Link?

    27" IPS Monitor: Acer XB271HU vs AOC AG271QG vs ViewSonic XG2703-GS

    I have the Acer and personally I think it's great. The coating is unobtrusive, display quality is pretty solid (very little backlight bleed), uniformity is good. As far as 144hz vs 165hz goes, I don't think it matters. I use ULMB @ 120hz 100% of the time, and to my eyes 120hz ULMB looks...

    6 best 4K TVs for HDR/SDR Console and PC gaming Oct 2016

    WHY do we need displays this bright? HDR seems like a complete gimmick to me. I do not want to see 1000 nit whites while I am watching anything. When do we actually benefit from HDR? When something is filmed under sub optimal lighting conditions, goes through post-processing, and it ends up...
