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

    Should have at least been 38. If they'd have done 40 - it would have been far more "worth" the premium even if it had been pricier than the 34. 34 just has too much "cheap" associated with the size to really support a premium option. But we'll see. Markets can be crazy these days. But a 42...

    LG 38WN95C Monitor launched

    LG has launched the Gsync compatible variant of the 38GL950, known as 38WN95C 144Hz Gsync compatible (no Gsync module and thus no fan) HDR 600 Nano IPS Thunderbolt 3 $1599

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    My only thought is perhaps internal to the KVM it is switching (or extracting) the HDMI signal from the incoming DP and then pushing it back out to DP. That would be consistent behavior with slowing it down to 85hz and working on the 38GL950. This is the limit the monitor can accept from an...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Keep in mind that the tariff situation with China is going to impact prices. And sadly Marketing 101 says that if your product is in gigantic demand such that you can't produce enough to satisfy, you raise the price. But because the price was high enough to cause people to question the...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    The only reason I was "ok" with HDR600 is that for the amount of support HDR has so far, I didn't feel chasing a higher standard was really going to be of use for a few years yet. And by then monitors will have improved. USB C cable length ability is longer if your underlying DP connection is...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I'm in the camp that I want one of these but probably want to wait for the hdr600 version. I'm not positive I want to stick to that since the price drop makes it more interesting. Not a fan of "the fan". Fans can die. They do make some noise. And it adds bulk to the panel. Thunderbolt is...

    Sweet Baby Jeebus Alienware 55" 4k120 OLED Displayport

    Hoping we get a 48 panel variant from AW with both DP 1.4 (with perhaps USB C variant as well) and also HDMI 2.1. At that point, and with the price lowering that has gone on for the AW55 I think you'd have a lot less uncertainty from buyers. Folks legitimately wanting more TV dual purpose than...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    I wonder, since the AUO 43" panels got such attention, if LG has given thought to releasing the 16:9 equivalent to this around the 40" mark, basically the same panel just more vertical. I have a different 38 now and do like it alot. Not surprised that this model is as good as it is. But...

    LG 48" OLED is coming

    I'd say they ought to make a 44. Yes I too would love 43, but you could take a 88/8K and cut it into 4 panels and quite likely make better margins out of the 4 monitors than out of the 1 8K TV. 40-43 people would stretch to 44 for the "OLED" and those wanting bigger would either jump to 55 or...

    So, Where are the 5K monitors?

    A "widescreen" version of 32/4k seems like something that "should" have been done by now. 32/4k @ 125 or 150 scaling is very nice. With the now well acknowledged popularity of 21:9 and DP 1.4 bandwidth it seems like we should have these on the market.

    2080ti air or hybrid

    Very much on the fence on 2080ti air or hybrid. The things are already pricey enough as it is, and OC is unnecessary in this case. It's more of how much noise reduction to seek and the longevity where fans pretty much last forever. But would appreciate anyone who wants to weigh in.

    Any word on widescreen versions of 32" 4K screens

    Well I'll pose it with what we did with the two. The widescreen is sitting with the "gaming" desktop (liquid cooled 9700k + 2080). The 4K screen became the Surface Book workstation for getting work done and I'll decide later whether to add gaming to that station. If I were going to go in...

    Any word on widescreen versions of 32" 4K screens

    I have a 3818dw now (joined the family) and the entire house likes it very much (110 dpi or so). However we also have 32" 4K and while we scale it up a bit (125%) it provides a much nicer text readability and everyone who looked at both saw it immediately. So I got to wondering. 29"...

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    I also recently got the 3818dw. It's a really good monitor and running everything including sound with one USB C connection to the Surface Book 2 is quite nice (includes power back to the SB2). Nice setup, Klipsch and all :)

    LG 34WK95U

    LG dropped the ball on this one. I think they need a revision 2 and maybe let some of the other monitor manufacturers take a stab at building monitors based off of it.

    USB C

    Dell U3219 supports USB 2.0 (not 3.0) data over the USB C connection. This in fact allows the USB ports on the monitor to then act as a KVM where the monitor is the hub and connections go into it. I don't use the 2.0 connectivity (no need) but there are monitors out there that are capable.

    HDR 1000 nits vs 400 nits

    High HDR brightness ups the cost a bunch. HDR400 isn't much but gives you something until backlights improve and costs come to more reasonable levels to get that high brightness.

    OLED monitor news

    I've read all the "color volume" and other features of LCD that has been posted. And yet, when put in a room to watch for several hours of good old fashioned "content" 9 out of 10 people will pick the OLED panels as better looking every single time. Bright rooms, dark rooms, it's all been...

    Samsung Announces World's First 15.6-Inch UHD OLED Displays for Notebooks

    Lordy - do folks get going. It's an option! Frankly the supply is going to be limited so those who don't want them, don't worry. If you can't run 4K in a game run it at 1920x1080. That's the res you'd get from a lower res screen anyway. I have a 4K 15.6" notebook and it's great. Frankly the...

    There's Allegedly a "Quiet Hostility" Between Apple and Nvidia

    I don't think they see egpu's as much market yet, but they are giving it more effort to see how it pans out. I'm positive bumpgate is not forgotten. That was expensive in PR and in $$. And lastly Apple is really serious about the thin and light aspect of their products. And Nvidia, imo, lies...

    PCIe 5.0 Is Ready for Prime Time

    They are not even at (just close to) standards approval. Parts for this stuff is miles away yet. 4.0 may be short, but seriously it's at least "ready" with parts that can ship, controllers that can be adopted and you aren't even seeing that yet in products. Worse when people get 4.0, the jump...

    Need a new, 34GK950G-B or AW3418dw?

    I saw a Google sheets somewhere where they were tracking the models that worked with Gsync VRR, and the F model was listed. If I were making the choice that's where I'd go, HDR, full DP 1.4 with 10 bit, a low latency mode and VRR support? Make sure you check more before launching however...

    Nvidia's started supporting FreeSync

    This is something long overdue. I'm going to retain some skepticism that it's for real until we see how it well it pans out. But some of us would be perfectly happy with 80-100hz and a variable without a lot of extra. This may well keep us as NV customers :)

    Future 38" IPS panel 98% DCI P3 144Hz HDR 600

    nVidia BFGD to launch. HP Omen X 65 Emperium BFGD first look

    A very insightful article on Nano IPS

    It's not Quantum dot (or at least that's the supposition). If it were they'd call it that. Qdot films require a thicker bezel due to the way the sandwiching works. Just something more to ponder.

    Future 38" IPS panel 98% DCI P3 144Hz HDR 600

    FALD is also likely to have lifespan issues - just go have a look at TV's that end up with burned out spots. It happens more than you'll like to read about. Given the cost, the imperfection of the tech, edge is good enough. No monitor lasts truly forever, and really we need OLED or microLED...

    A very insightful article on Nano IPS

    This engineer is making some guesses but they are pretty reasonably based and may help people better understand what is being delivered with "nano IPS". I will also note that most wide gamut displays have a far better green and red wavelength response than ordinary White LED or White CCFL...

    Future 38" IPS panel 98% DCI P3 144Hz HDR 600

    HDMI 2.1 is possible. NO mention of HDR of any kind so would they bother with DP 1.4 and 10 bit panel? Feels like a 38" copy of the 34GK950 but that's not entirely a bad thing. I just know what 10 bit color looks like compared to 8. But again, wide gamut but just 8 bit mapping might be ok...

    OLED HDMI 2.1 VRR LG 2019 models!!!!
