    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Is it just me or does it look like screen is curved backwards from the center? It might be an optical illusion because my previous display was a 2015 48" Samsung 4k curved TV- made for a pretty mediocre display but it was big, this is more reasonable. I do have a few initial complains (just set...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I was planning on going OLED but Amazon was selling this yesterday morning briefly for $599 which was too good to pass up.

    I bought a used LenovoEMC PX4-400D, what should I do with it?

    Thanks for pointing this out. Yes, I can go into the bios and boot from a flash drive. I just bought a 64GB small drive so I can put it flush against the wall on a shelf. I'll give it a shot- the PX4-400D has an HDMI out which makes everything so much easier. I also have some extra DDR lying...

    https://www.karma-group.ru/upload/iblock/926/Lenovo_EMC_PX4-400D_.A1635690A6414A46B83B91ADD251650F.pdf I was looking to buy a NAS and saw one of these pop up on eBay for $100. It's EOL, and unsupported, but even though it's a little old (2014) the hardware is pretty solid- apparently it's just...

    I'm on the queue for the cheapest 3080Ti. It's unfortunate none of their models offer 2 HDMI outputs.

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    It wasn’t a review, just a commercial. He got a free display out of it.

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    I can't bring myself to spend more than MSRP. I have a 2080Ti so that will hold me over for a while (although I'd like better because I game at 4k). I guess I'll upgrade my other stuff first- my CPU (5820k) is getting a little long in the tooth- it's time I buy a new case too.

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    Ok. Vizio's implementation of eARC can pass bitstreamed DTS-HD and TrueHD, but with only PCM 2.0 implementation you can't use it for proper PS5, PC or Apple TV audio (probably other streaming devices as well).

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    What's not? The TV is supposed to support eARC, it doesn't implement it properly. 7.1PCM is part of the eARC spec, LG TVs can support it.

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08MSWMXT4 Got this yesterday- it's great. It's better than my 2080Ti's built in HDMI port- I can output up to 12bit 4k/60Hz 4:4:4 YCbCr on my Samsung I use as a display. I have yet to try on my Vizio PQX mainly because of Vizio's shitty HDMI 2.1 compliance...

    Your point being? Most games on the PS5are lucky to be running 4k/60Hz let alone 120Hz.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I would not buy this if you plan to watch a lot of movies, especially without 23.976/24Hz support.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I'm in no real rush as I don't expect to get a new setup or GPU (5820k@4.3+2080Ti) until the silicon shortage breaks. I am still very curious about whatever 42" OLED is targeted specifically at the PC market. Burn in still concerns me and I'm hoping there will be features specifically to deal...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Yeah. I was always planning on upgrading my 2080Ti to a 3080Ti but that’s not likely to happen now, so even if I got a 144Hz display I couldn’t really drive it that well with my current setup. Freesync would be nice tho. The 48JU6700F makes for a decent enough display for a fake-HDR 4K TV but...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I wouldn't use the speakers- Still seems pretty ironic to me that a display like this costs less than a videocard. I'm torn- I know there will be other 43" models equivalent to this coming soon, and I'm not sure if I want to wait for the 42" OLEDs. I really don't like my 48" 2015 curved...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Well, Newegg raised the price by $100 so I am surely not buying one now. I might as well just wait for more reviews and it goes on sale again or just wait out the 42” OLEDs. By then this will have dropped in price anyways.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    A little OT, but the fact there are no iPad apps for display calibration that work with a colorimeter is disappointing. I have an old Spyder3 around here somewhere, and that should be enough to do the job.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I’ve been interacting the the guy who runs the Imaging Science Foundation for a month or so now and he told me that a good portion of the ISF certified calibrators (including him) are retired and are doing it as a second career. I have the Spears & Munsil 4k disk, but I really need to buy a...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I refuse to pay Newegg's marked up prices for any piece of computer hardware. At best I can hope to get a 3080Ti as being one of EVGA's "Elite" members, but even then it's a pretty slim chance. I imagine those will come in ~$1200. Right now the FV43U looks like a good bet- just waiting on one...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    If the 42" OLEDs were out we'd have a good comparison, but as of now it isn't and we have no idea when they will be available. I also wonder if any of them will be targeted as strictly PC displays? I have a 2080Ti, and also, god knows when I'll be able to find a 3xxx card to upgrade to, so...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I think his overall review is good tho- at least that's what I'm gathering from the comments. He does speak English so I asked him directly what he thinks of it, hopefully I'll get a response and a good overall review written up soon.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Windowed borderless tends to impact performance on most games anyways, doesn't it? As long as the display works well with Freesync/Gsync in full screen mode that's all I care about. As I said, I have a 2080Ti w/5820k@4.3GHz so I could definitely use the Freesync here. I assume it will allow me...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    As I said, that's why I'm waiting for one of the better, more technically oriented websites to get the display. I think it's a good sign that Gigabyte decided to include a calibration report with it.
