    MIni-LED is cool, but I reckon this is still going to be the whole "Choose between HDR or high refresh, you cannot have both" type scenario since the port selection isn't changing particularly much so bandwidth will remain the same...

    Honestly I was more excited by the 120hz 4K OLED panels showing up on a few of the laptops - if they are on those maybe we'll see OLED Monitors with 4K resolution and 120hz Refresh rates in the near future?

    oled also has horrible black crush and depending on the leds used middling peak brightness.

    I was interested initially in the PG27UQ, but a model announced (and shown) by LG has me probably holding off until reviews land: LG 38GL950G curved 3840 x 1600 175Hz Nano IPS G-SYNC

    In my experience LG has always been garbage but with a solid warranty this may be my next screen. I hope they don't charge the 'gamer' tax that ASUS do either.

    "576 of them, really, with each being comprised of mini LEDs that are a mere 200-300 micrometers in size."

    On first reading that might sound great, but 546 regions means if say each region is the same aspect ratio as the screen at large, then the zones are about 30x15mm in size. I guess thats better than before but still somewhat blocky.

    The 200-300 um leds sounds interesting until you realise, that if they're the backlight, what does it matter what size they are all that much?

    I assume this isnt proper mini-led cause isnt that meant to be equivalent of OLED? this is just mini-led backlit or something?

    Also 4k eww give us 1440p HDR1000 27" panels.

    You're thinking of MicroLED, aka ┬ÁLED. Different tech.

    You're thinking of Hisense's "ULED XD", another technology again!
