What is Nano IPS? Smaller pixels?
Roughly speaking, Nano IPS (Nano Cell) is LG's equivalent to Samsung's Quantum Dot (QLED) technology. It's a different approach to backlighting that's supposed to improve the color gamut.

LG has also been using the term to market 1ms response time claims that have, to date, been nothing but marketing fluff.

Since there is a 27 850 and this is the next in line as 27 950...

There is a 32 850 series so maybe there's a chance a 32 inch 950 could also happen. I would be sorely tempted myself.

32" would be much more preferred, HDR 1000 as well. Still is a decent monitor but just not for me.

Yeah, if it was 32" I would definitely be more excited. HDR 1000 on top I would sell my current panel and get it.

I mean, it sounds good, not gonna lie, but I think I'm okay for now.

I am interesting in the RGB Sphere Lighting 2.0.

If it works with any game that would be awesome!

There others are all about 700:1 400nits HDR1/VESA400. This is 1000:1, 700nits, HDR10/VESA600.

Weird. Normally units with a fan, have local dimming and are super bright: 1000 nits peak.

This isn't an abnormally bright monitor, and appears it may have edge lit local dimming (pointless).

This thing has a fan in it. :(

Isn't that normal now at least for some of these higher end monitors? My Asus PG27UQ has one, too. They are "supposed" to be fairly quiet unless there's some issue or hiccup.

Normal for a super bright (1000 nits peak) high end monitor like yours, since very high brightness needs a LOT more power.

But this one is 400 nits...
