    Lenovo ThinkVision P40w-20 - 40" UltraWide (Curved) 5120x2160 IPS at 75hz

    I believe the Dell U4021QW can also run at 75Hz (it's the same panel, just OC'd in the Lenovo variant).

    Dell 5k UW released

    This might just be my next monitor. Higher than 4k res, IPS, 40 inches. I'm guessing this has the new 40inch 5k2k LG panel announced late last year. Please, please, please LG & Dell, don't let this one have deal breaking issues!!

    Gray Uniformity Decent?

    This issue is my main problem when buying a new display. Its honestly a lottery, and it has been this way for as far back as I can remember with TFT monitors. I honestly don't care for HRR or HDR or 100% DCI-P3 coverage, or even perfect out of the box color calibration or zero BLB. I just want...

    What new display type are you looking for in 2021?

    It has been said many, many times, but the monitor industry moves incredibly slowly compared to almost every other tech sector. Just look at how many years it took to move from 768p displays in laptops to higher res, better quality panels, while phones were already at 1440p and TVs were going...

    Does anyone have the Dell U4320q? Impressions?

    I do wonder if its a newer panel compared to the U4317Q, but that low contrast ratio seems disheartening.

    What is the difference between Dell 3219 Q vs Dell 3216Q displays ? 3216Q is $500 more.

    The 2019 has a slightly newer panel with better contrast ratio and supports a basic (useless) form of HDR. Both monitors exhibit noticeable PWM flicker (around 240Hz IIRC).

    Pixel count for productivity. 2x 34WK95U's.

    I do believe that this particular monitor has been discontinued. I can't seem to be able to find it in stock or available for order anywhere in the EU. Perhaps LG is preparing its successor, hopefully with the kinks ironed out (image retention etc.). The only other monitor I know of that uses...

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    BGR subpixel arrangement was a given - this is yet another TV panel jerry rigged into a monitor. Unfortunately there exist zero RGB 4k panels over 32" today. And while Windows Cleartype calibration does mitigate most of the issues (at least OS-wide), a lot of older apps don't adhere to it and...

    LG 34WK95U

    I read rtings review and they mention an abysmally low 240hz PWM frequency for the backlight. What the hell is LG thinking? This looked like the ideal monitor for me, but that PWM flicker.. ouch. Even the muc maligned 43ud79 had a firmware update that increased PWM frequency to 480Hz IIRC.

    LG 34WK95U

    Lenovo also has a page dedicated to this issue re: LGs panels first used on the X220 back in 2011. I believe this was the first widespread IPS image retention issue. I do believe that if one panel exhibits this, then all of them will do it...

    LG 34WK95U

    As an owner of a 4096x2160 monitor, I completely agree. This 'wider' 2160p resolution is ideal both from a usability as well as a bandwidth aspect. And at 38 inches, with a slight curve, I'd buy this in an instant (even with image retention)!

    LG 34WK95U

    Sadly this kind of image persistence is the norm for newer, high res IPS panels. It's not true burn in, since it disappears after a few minutes in most cases. But it is annoying, nonetheless.

    LG 34WK95U

    This could very well be my next monitor. But first, I need to get a graphics card with DP 1.4, sigh

    LG 34WK95U

    My question is, how does one drive such a monitor without TB3? Is the DP input v1.4?

    Philips Momentum 43" 4K HDR gaming display

    The only thing that bothers me about this otherwise attractive monitor is that it apparently does not utilize a true 10-bit panel, but rather a 8 bit + FRC one. It's 2018, I would expect all 4K HDR panels to be true 10-bit. As for local dimming that is a bonus for sure, but I don't expect it to...
