    Best giant UHD HDR monitor like AORUS FO48U but without burn-in issues?

    Ain't that the truth. I don't regret going 50" with the QN94A, it's a great display and going strong for all my uses. I'd happily go down a size or two though, for the space consideration. The problem being any LCD greater than 40" but less than 50" is a mess of flaws.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I don't know for sure if it's related but this might be due to flaws in the overdrive algorithm on this monitor. Back when I used one I noticed strange warping artifacts on the desktop when dragging windows or other content horizontally. These artifacts went away if I turned overdrive off...

    Local dimming algorithm ruining text clarity on the QN90B

    Given that the 43" 90B appears to use the same panel as all current equivalent size "gaming" monitors (due to the pixel interference issue being identical) and my experience with the FV43U's viewing angle being dire, I'm not wholly surprised at this. I refuse to touch any 43" LCD until it's...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    DSC claims to be "visually lossless", which to me means it isn't lossless. If you need to prefix "lossless" with something then it isn't proper lossless compression. It may well have visual degradation in certain situations. ...thought I'd look into it. From Wikipedia: That's a yes then, DSC...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    And be warned that the pixel row interference/bleeding issue will 100% be on both the 90A and 90B at 43". I don't regret the 50" for a single second because of this but I do understand the size is a bit much for some.

    Samsung Odyssey ARK 55" 4K Gaming monitor

    Yeah, the biggest reason I've never used one. I don't have a separate rig for work and gaming (unless you count the Steam Deck) so I've always needed a do-it-all flat display. The only time I'd be tempted by curved panels is if I ever build myself a racing sim rig.

    Samsung Odyssey ARK 55" 4K Gaming monitor

    Is it a general thing with curved monitors that the center is curved and the sides flatten out? That's definitely how it appears in the pictures of this one. I don't really have experience with curved panels but seeing as my work relies on straight lines I really don't like the idea of them and...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    My Raspberry Pi 4 running Pi-hole does a good job of this but most of the time I just disconnect the TV from the internet entirely. It's my monitor, I don't need any of the "smart" stuff at all. Nor do I like the idea of the thing constantly calling home, even with a Pi-hole in the way.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Technically it affects everything the display does at all times as it's inherent to the panel and nothing can get around it. Practically if you're using the display only for entertainment and you're sat at a somewhat sensible distance you'll likely never see it. Plenty seem to be using the...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    What test pattern? It absolutely has to be unscaled, whatever image you have used. This is the old image I made to test for the problem on the FV43U (had to go hunting for it heh). In theory all the grey lines and text should be the same colour. If your screen has the issue, the horizontal...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    That looks exactly like the issue on the FV43U. Every single 43 inch panel I have looked at has this pixel interference issue but even I'm surprised a 2022 TV has it too. I've got the 50" QN94A and can confirm this issue doesn't exist on this panel. If all the 43"ers still have this awful issue...

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    I'd jump on it if I wasn't already satisfied. It sounds great, especially as the 43" version finally has decent specs but it isn't worth the money to replace the QN94A I'm using. Somewhat tempted to get one as a TV though, my main TV is 10 years old (yes... really) and a QN90B would be a lovely...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I remember my first LCD screen (a 19" 1280X1024 iiyama) looking concave as I was so used to the actually convex nature of my old CRT. Those illusions are a weird thing.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Probably true, but everything at that size is dire and suffers the same problem. All the flaws made the overall image quality headache inducing.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I haven't been around these parts for a while and I'm amazed to see this thread still going strong! I did this back in September and haven't looked back. Took a bit of tweaking to be ideal for PC use but returning to a panel that doesn't have the awful pixel-level interference of the FV43U just...

    QN90A Owners Club

    Oddly enough the sharpness setting changes its scale based on what you're using. I have to set it to 0 for the PS5 to get rid of it as by default it is over sharpened and pretty awful looking. With PC mode, 0 is quite obviously blurring the image. These inconsistencies between modes are baffling...

    QN90A Owners Club

    For PC work use (I have the 50" and do structural CAD on it but it doesn't require colour accuracy) the colours actually benefit from going into the service menu and turning off local dimming entirely when in PC mode. Makes the desktop more uniform and (to my entirely subjective eyes) more...

    New Iiyama 43" 4K G4380UHSU-B1 Red Eagle significantly undercuts price of FV43U

    And thus the cycle of people who can and can't see the problem starts again. ;) I'd put money on it being on every single sample of every monitor model it has been found on.

    New Iiyama 43" 4K G4380UHSU-B1 Red Eagle significantly undercuts price of FV43U

    It's an issue on current 43" monitor panels where dark pixels will darken the pixel directly below it, similarly a bright pixel with brighten the pixel below. It happens panel-wide but is worse at the top and nearly non-existent at the bottom. I documented it extensively in the FV43U thread and...

    New Iiyama 43" 4K G4380UHSU-B1 Red Eagle significantly undercuts price of FV43U

    Pales to insignificance compared to all the other 43" monitors and their trouble with pixel row interference. I'd put money on this thing having the same problem. I am completely shunning the 43" monitor class until this is confirmed to have been solved.

    New Acer Predator CG437K Sbmiipuzx

    Glad I could help! Took some effort to get people to understand the issue. With reason - it's not easy to see without looking closely and certain use cases show it more than others. Once I saw that even the OSD has the issue I knew it wasn't going to be fixed as it's hardware-side. I went the...

    New Acer Predator CG437K Sbmiipuzx

    Don't hold out too much hope. My brief research into the aforementioned grey-under-black issue last year suggested every 43" class monitor currently available has it. A panel revision is a possibility of course but I gave up on the 43" idea and went elsewhere.

    4k monitors

    Damn... you really did keep it! Still got mine and I agree. Just played Horizon Forbidden West on it and now GT7 and they look amazing. It transforms it into an ideal working screen when not gaming. But as always a 50" desktop isn't for everyone.

    Samsung QD-OLED

    This. I will continue to wait for a self-emissive tech that doesn't have burn-in concerns, whatever that may be. mLED, (real) QNED, it doesn't matter. I'm hoping any form of OLED is simply a stepping stone to it that I can skip.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Marketing can be really misleading and Samsung do have a habit of making everything "Quantum" but QLED does come from quantum dot tech, not related to the organic in OLED.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I remember trying to flag this one up along with the pixel row interference months ago, I believe they're related. Scrolling HardForum next to Discord just happens to be exactly where I first saw it too. It's an issue with the panel hardware and there's no fix.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    You won't get Lagom's gamma tests to show the actual gamma on the FV43U. The pixel row interference issue that I'm sure this thread got sick of me for completely gets in the way of its accuracy, especially on 25% and 10%. It is impossible for the monitor to display it right, even if the gamma is...

    4k monitors

    To be fair the benefit of high PPI is that you do scale the text and it looks cleaner and sharper because it has a higher number of smaller pixels available to it. However I do agree with you on the larger panels. 32" would be a minimum for desktop 4k for me. 27" (and some people's curious...

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

    That's even worse. I don't only game on monitors, same for most I'm sure. My work is reliant on straight lines and trying to get it done on that or even use it as a second screen for the reference drawings would be beyond annoying.

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    They've never posted changelogs, at least for this monitor. Very frustrating because it's left to the users to install it and find the differences. I no longer have mine hooked up to the PC so I can't report back for now.

    You'd get a better experience from the newer QN9*A range as a PC monitor. I can personally vouch for the 50".

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I'm not sure either the FV43U or the QN90A have been available and in use for long enough for anyone to report LED lifetime issues. It'd be a serious concern if that was cropping up already, even if people are using HDR all the time.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Can't comment on that unfortunately, the only time I use Windows is in a VM that is lopped off the internet. But I can say the subpixel rendering in both Firefox and Chrome on Linux is identical for me and is obeying the BGR setting just fine.

    The Samsung QLED q90a will be released in a 43" model.

    Thank you. People that claim BGR is the end of the world for text and call a screen DOA because of it annoy me. ClearType on Windows can be set to it and here on Linux/KDE the BGR subpixel rendering mode is perfect - as good as any RGB monitor I've had with the RGB mode. The ONLY time I see the...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Enabling HDR on the monitor and not the OS doesn't make any sense. I assume it's just an OSD option that allows the monitor to accept HDR signals, whereas turning it off would force things to SDR (I don't know, this doesn't make much sense either). One thing's for sure, you can't magically have...
