It is compromised. If all the issues they complain about on an HDR display are fixed like an all-in-one monitor, it is going to be even more expensive. The technology has reached its current limits. ASUS PG32UQX already fixes the blooming but it has a bigger ABL now, 50%-100% window drops down from 1400-1200nits to 1000nits. That's an 800nits gap compared to the 1800nits highlight. I guess ASUS cannot fix one thing without introducing another.They're too expensive, they're also slow (particularly the ASUS monitor which costs like 3 grand still), also their FALD is a blooming mess in a lot of scenarios. People will take the deep blacks over a giant white blotch in star field situations.
But other types of monitors like 200nits OLED, which swoop in between the current stage of mini-LED and the next micro-LEDs, cannot display a lot of scenes requiring higher brightness and wider colorspace as well, even in the starfield. It looks like HDR 200 while the SDR on FALD IPS already looks like HDR 400 or above. Other types of monitors don't look as good as IPS. Also, people talk like they have seen better images a lot.
So you have 3 options:
1. an expensive display with a good image with a slower response time as well as some blooming
2. a cheap display with a worse image but faster response time.
