    What setting is the local dimming set too? Auto, Low or High?

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

    I think the 43" version of the QN90B might be a better alternative the G7/G8.

    I forget to update this thread. I got a replacement and the fan is great. No issues at all now.

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

    The G7 and G8 use the exact same panel technology. The only differences are the chassis, AG coating and refresh rate. The variation in native contrast that Hardware Unboxed noted between the two monitors is most likely associated with manufacturing tolerances/panel lottery. It's clear that the...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    What this shows is that current 3090ti 1440p performance will be similar to 4090 4K performance.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    New 4090 rumors are showing the card breaking 19K in Time Spy Extreme. My 3090ti scores around 11800 so that's quite a jump in performance!

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

    That might be the reason you're seeing issues. Vega mentioned that he ran into problems when he didn't use the supplied DP cable. I would look into getting another DP cable if I were you. Something like THIS .

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

    I think this chart lines up with what everyone in this thread has been saying. The G8 is NOT outputting 2K nits of brightness. It's more like 1K for most HDR highlights. In contrast the Asus PG32UQX will burn your eyes out with the amount of nits it outputs for those same highlights.

    Linus did a sponsored video on the G8. It's not technical at all though.

    I also mentioned this and what I did to help was to enable contrast enhancer in the monitor menu.

    Nice, I bought my G8 from Amazon so I just issued a return and purchased another at the lower price.

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

    OK so I used that KBB.com site as reference and switched between 120 and 240 several times. From my sitting distance I don't see any difference. If I move about an inch away from the screen I do see a faint grid effect. This is not a deal breaker personally but it might be for some [H] members...

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

    I'm sitting about 2.5' away from the screen and I'm not seeing scan lines. My desktop is scaled by 150% via Windows 11 and I'm using Google Chrome to view the web page you posted. The AR coating is visible but I'm not seeing lines through the graphics you pointed out. Can anyone else with a G8...

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

    My post was just related to image quality. I'm well aware that anything Apple makes is not geared towards gaming. This also brings up a good point. Are there any FALD displays with very fast response times? Sony recently enabled VRR and ALLM on their TVs but doing so disables FALD.

    I honestly didn't notice scan lines. Post some source images that produce it if you can.

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

    You make some valid points but also note that using an OLED TV for desktop work does have it's drawbacks. Try to hide the taskbar and don't keep static images on the screen for too long. By default LG OLED TVs have aggressive ABL settings to help dim the screen if it detects a static image which...

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

    I have Contrast Enhancer on. Now I'm not going to post in here saying that the FALD on the G8 produces no blooming, that would be a lie. What I will say is that this monitor does a very good job mitigating the effects of blooming. Videos with multiple small light points throughout the image will...

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

    I watched that same video on my G8 and it doesn't look like the picture you posted (note that I was sitting directly in front of the monitor). What settings are you using?

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

    Not sure about the G7 but on the G8 there's a setting in the "Picture" menu called "Contrast Enhancer". Setting this to "On" will improve the desktop image once you enable HDR in Windows 10/11.

    That monitor is probably going to sell like hot cakes because of the Playstation branding alone.

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

    I just setup my G8 and so far I'm impressed by what I'm seeing. The desktop colors seem muted a bit but HDR Youtube videos look stunning and the blooming is almost completely gone vs something like the PG32UQX. It's close to OLED black levels on the linked video. The one thing I can say about...

    Vega hows the halo effect on the desktop? Is it better than the PG32UQX?

    What's the status of the G9 right now? Did Samsung address all the issues? Is it safe to buy? Just asking since Samsung dropped to price by more than half.

    Received a Dead Deck

    I had a support ticket opened but closed it once I was issued an RMA. That was probably a mistake on my part. I opened a new support ticket to inquire about the RMA and got a response saying that I should be getting shipping details in 24hrs. I'll bet my first born that's not going to happen...

    Received a Dead Deck

    So I sent my Steam Deck back because of a faulty fan. It was signed for on June 1st. As of today I've heard nothing from the RMA department so it seems that Valve is still struggling to action returns. I'm planning to open a support ticket to ask for an update (if there is any).

    Received a Dead Deck

    I ended up having to return my Steam Deck because the fan was making a grinding noise. Based on your experience I'm going to be waiting a while.
