    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Literally anyone can do this. It's the easiest thing in the world. If you can't, I'm sorry you have an eyesight problem, maybe get that checked out. Also, not sure why you keep saying 250 nits. That's more than double the normal calibration standard of 80-120 nits and using a screen at 250 nits...

    The much higher ABL threshold is one of the main reasons this monitor is better than any of the LG panels.

    There's nothing to forget because that isn't true at all. It's very misleading to call slight brightness dimming "flicker". LCD backlight PWM flicker is completely different. Slight brightness dimming with refresh rate is also common to all types of OLED and nobody is complaining about LG OLEDs...

    lolwut. MiniLED is more like half-crippled LCD instead of completely crippled standard LCD. It still has the same response time issues(often worse in fact because making the miniLEDs have good latency is expensive and hard, see all the massively overpriced gsync ultimate lcds) and the black...

    Commercial or Comsumer Grade?

    Commercial LCDs are designed to optimize brightness and lifespan, and that's literally it. Their image quality is garbage compared to any of the higher end consumer displays. There's really no point to even looking at them.

    LG 27 " OLED and 31.5" 4K

    These monitors already exist, I don't really know what they've changed if anything. It seems like they might just have added built-in colorimeters or something. Anyway, it's still 60hz crap which is pretty uninteresting IMO.

    I'm just microfibering it and using monitor wipes. No damage caused that I've seen. My screen did come with some of the light coating scratches that others have pointed out, but they're only in the top left part and they're completely invisible unless you shine a flashlight directly on the...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    I think the text clarity "issue" on OLEDs is massively overblown. When I got my QD-OLED, first thing I did was check text on a variety of sizes and background colors. The only time I'd say it was even really noticeable was with very tiny text sizes. Was there an improvement using the ClearType...

    To be clear, it works fine for me with hardware acceleration on. I don't know why people are having that problem, but it's not purely because of the display. If that option helps, then it's probably some kind of driver issue.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Edge case low framerate VRR flicker and stuff like that is super common to all monitors and not really what I'd describe as a significant(or even worth talking about) flicker problem, but OK lol. I run Slack on Win10 and even with a game in windowed mode(w/Gsync Windowed enabled) and Slack on...

    There's no flicker on this monitor. Either your monitor is broken or you're imagining things.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    The pixel refresh logic seems a bit broken if you're still getting the window where it asks you. It liked to ask me to do a pixel refresh on power-on as well. Since I told it to never ask again, it's not been an issue. There is no benefit to having it ask you as far as I can tell.

    Really? I'm not sure that's true... I haven't had a Dell monitor in a while, but there's plenty of evidence of firmware updates for their other monitors online eg https://www.dell.com/support/kbdoc/en-ca/000123821/updating-the-firmware-for-the-dell-up2516d-and-up2716d Anyway it is what it is.

    I didn't say it was OK as-is lol, I want them to fix it. But I'm enjoying my monitor anyway and it's hardly the least convenient thing I've dealt with in PC hardware. YMMV!

    It powers off. Yes, it's annoying. They should change it so it goes into standby after pixel refresh. The rules are: Has the monitor been used for at least 4 hours? Standby -> Pixel Refresh -> off. The only time it ever asked me to pixel refresh when I turn the monitor on was before I answered...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Has anyone found a way to fix the Samsung QD-OLED TVs? My understanding from Vincent's last video is that he couldn't find any way to fix the EOTF curve in any mode so the TVs cannot be made accurate.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    I would consider the Samsung version of this if they release it. But other than that, what's the alternative? There's no OLED or QD-OLED gaming monitors on the horizon short of 42-48" LG things and while I understand why people like those, I'd really prefer something smaller like this one. So...

    Total nonsense, they can do whatever they want. I didn't say it was *easy*. Plenty of companies like Apple let you choose whether or not you want a stand with a monitor. Yes, it would require them to make changes to their SKUs and possibly to the packaging, but if 10s of thousands of these...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    It's not completely impossible but it does seem incompetent to me if true. Many people would take these displays happily without stands if it meant avoiding a 3+ month delay. Then again, Dell has an ordering system which doesn't allow changing of credit card info for an order after it's placed...

    Samsung Display(the panel makers) have nothing to do with that TV's problems. The EOTF and color calibration cheating would have been inserted by the TV manufacturer, which, while still owned by Samsung, is a completely separate company.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    To me the point is more: If you want inaccurately vibrant colors, you can change the settings on any TV to be more like that. But if you're *comparing* two TVs you have to do it with them calibrated and accurate, otherwise you're not comparing the display capability. You're just comparing a...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    I have no idea why you'd ever even consider buying a smaller TV than you can otherwise fit. Size is always better than relatively small image quality differences because it's way more immersive. I only have ~8' viewing distance and I want to go up to ~80" for my next TV because that's the only...

    Dunno, he doesn't say how long a measurement run takes. I wouldn't say it's a torture test. A.measurement run is just measuring max brightness windows. So it will depend on the average brightness of your content. We'll find out in the full review probably. But my point is more that if even the...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Until it runs out of thermal capacity and throttles down to 600 nits, yes. We don't have a test telilng us how long that takes yet, but Vincent at HDTVTest observed it happening during subsequent test runs so it seems very likely it is something that will impact viewing over the duration of a...

    Dude it's a forum. I replied to a user talking about a video about framerate, with the words "once it's above 100hz I can't really utilize whatever advantage anything higher would give" in his post. That is what I was replying to. What I was quoting. Not your imaginary argument that I didn't...

    It's weird to me how people look at what seems like 100% clear data to me, and then just come out with completely random opposite conclusions. IMO this video shows that increasing past 144hz provides a statistical advantage to all players of all skills levels, but actually makes the biggest...

    There's a difference between being able to consciously discern refresh rates, and having it affect your performance in games. The former is not a requirement for the latter. Not that everyone *cares* about performance in games or anything, but there's definitely a difference for refresh rates...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Why does ABL matter in games/movies? LG OLED has more aggressive ABL and it's almost never a real issue. Assuming those are the primary types of content you would bother with HDR for. On the desktop I would just use whatever mode is least annoying with larger white windows, HDR accuracy doesn't...

    Yes the display is trash now, lots of issues. Cancel your pre-orders folks, certainly no reason to want one. And no, I'm not posting this because I want Dell to fulfill my order faster. Certainly not. I would never do that.

    The monitor is back-ordered 3 months out right now so I'm not sure there's any real urgency on getting reviews in. TFTCentral stated on Twitter that Dell UK has no stock, not even for review samples.

    The 32EP950 is a JOLED RGB OLED panel that costs $4000 and is targeted at professional color accuracy standards. The fact that they are comparable at all is a pretty big point in favor of the AW3423DW. Near-professional OLED image quality along with 175hz and gsync ultimate? For $1300? Um, yes...

    300 nit peak SDR brightness is excellent honestly, better than expected. The 677 nits on an 18% window in HDR sounds basically what I expected, not bad.
