    https://www.techpowerup.com/243578/...vbpab-monitor-4k-display-hdr-1000-active-sync
    PCCG has the 450nits version for $1099.

    The specs look good. 98% DCI-P3 coverage. 4000:1 contrast ratio. 32 backlight zones.
    I asked PCCG about the HDR1000 model and was told that they will definitely be getting them.

    I am prob guna buy the HDR1000 one instead of paying $4k for the 27inch G-sync 4k/144hz monitors.


    Possible price point is $1399 for HDR1000 model.

    The HDR400 one is $1099.

    I think its just freesync.

    Specs say Adaptive sync : yes

    AMBIGLOW is just dynamic lighting that changes with whats displayed on screen. Plenty of youtube vids.

    If any one buys the 1000nits version or the 450nits one please share some info.

    I think the 1000nits one qill be around $1300

    These are pretty much the only monitors with 400+ nits and good color peoduction at 4k.

    Even typical is 720nits.. idk what magic philips is using in this.

    It's shit, 3 stars.


    Jokes aside, you can read the review later:
    Ticks the box of HDR1000 but you will probably use it at a lower DR mode for better - still enticing - results.
    Freesync more or less only a box ticked feature.

    Sounds like the 1000 version might not be such a great buy over the standard monitor, especially at a $200-300 premium

    ^^^ If your going to be that concerned about proper HDR then your probably going to be using the monitor mainly for movies, the odd HDR picture.

    Which in that case you should be looking at buying a tv.

    You are not going to be wanting to stare at an overbright screen for the amount of time you spend looking at a monitor.
    Not unless you are looking for a severe case of Photic retinopathy.

    I would be more concerned about the colour gamut/accuracy and real estate this monitor gives on a 43 inch screen.

    They advertise the monitor for console gaming with low latency. It has 95%+ DCI-PC so i wudnt be worried about colors.

    Yes, I would have liked the 43" UHD W-LED 4ms Monitor w/ HDR1000 in 32" size.
    The features of the 43 inch model are really appealing.
    Great for watching movies on …… but as a computer monitor?
    The text would be a good size at 4K resolution, but the neck strain when repeatedly glancing from one side to the other might end up being a pain.

    Was about to start a post about the 1000nit model.

    I am wondering how it would go as a gaming console monitor (ps4 pro, Xbox One X) for 4k HDR. It would have lower input lag then TV's and at the price point seems to have pretty good HDR.

    I could then use it as a second PC monitor if needed.

    Now have the standard model on my desk. It's big and bright, in fact it's almost still too bright at 0 brightness.

    Now just need to hook it up to a 4k HDR capable source, the X220 won't cut it anymore!

    Ebay specials are bringing the price down a bit, $939 free shipped is best seen so far then minus the $100 cashback offer too.

    Yeah that's pretty much what every review has said about the HDR1000 feature. Funnily enough just having the HDR1000 feature is enough for every reviewer to ignore the standard 400 model.

    TBT if the input lag on OLED was just that little bit lower and the burn in topic more settled I would have pounced on the ~$1,600 deal.

    Although I would have also realised after taking it home that 55" is genuinely too big :p

    As much as people claim OLED is king I think I'd actually go with the Samsung Q7/Q8. Why? Lower input lag, brighter, no burn in, game motion plus (interpolation that only adds a few ms input lag so with it in is like 22ms where most panels are 60+ with it on) this makes games like rdr2 look 60+ fps. The 30fps is killing me.

    And the QLEDs with VA panels do blacks pretty damn well. I'd even love a q6 for my pc room seen them as low as $1400 and would be so nice. Very big though!

    I'm not interested in HDR so trying to work out whether the quantum-dot tech/film alone in the P-model is worth the extra ~$250 over the 'R', or is the difference only noticeable when viewing HDR?

    Anyone have any thoughts?
