    wow...that first post on reddit....specs downgraded....

    "For instance, it has now been stated that instead of 144hz, we are looking at best 98hz for 4K HDR 4:4:4. Anything more than that, we are looking at 4:2:2.
    On top of that, it now comes out that they are going to be using an 8-bit FRC panel instead of a true 10-bit panel."

    Its fake HDR10 if it cant do 10bit. The pro art is looking better. Also pro art might end up as the cheaper option haha...The g sync ones are around 3k euros so $5k..for 27 inch 8bit panel and its not OLED. Companies are nuts these days.

    B&H Photo already pulled their proart stock. It has bad reviews and some buyer said that customers ended up returning their monitors as they had issues and they wont be stocking more..

    Might as well buy a lg monitor thats HDR6 with 600nits for $1k and call it a day.

    I hope the 35inch versions will be better and cheaper..

    Can’t see price dropping for few years, without panels from LG and Samsung.

    Worth every penny to someone with sli titan v though

    Only if they have more dollars than sense. The irritating thing is that it's advertised as having all of these features, but it can't do them all at once.

    If you don't mind Korean unknown brands they can clock to 4K 120Hz at 400-ish nits via Displayport 1.4.

    If you want HDR proper.
    Save your money and buy a reasonably priced monitor.
    Not this stupidly overpriced 27inch, and with the money you save put that towards a half decent tv that can deliver the luminosity levels required for HDR..
