    I'm in the market for a new display. But both on some local retailers that I have & on newegg.com .. a lot of monitors are out of stock across most brands. Many are on heavy discount, and the overall outlook looks skewed.

    I'm guessing that with Computex 2019 (28MaytoJune1) and the start of Q3 (from June1) are around the corner, so it may mean that a whole ton of new monitors are inbound?

    What do you think? am I right?

    Well, NVIDIA is hinting at something "SUPER", and my guess it's a NV branded monitor line.

    Nothing in particular (and specially not high end 500$+), but more value for money perhaps. I would not want to buy a monitor that was launched 2 years ago, while missing out on a just launched monitor.

    Have heard of it, but it is similar to the BFG displays imho. Still a bit far away.
    Besides I'm not looking for some high end monitor

    Nothing wrong with a few year old IPS/1440p/GSYNC/165hz/27" monitor that is hardware calibrated.

    It would be good to know what you want from a monitor and how much you're willing to spend. Because monitors will wildly vary on what you want to use them for.

    Do you want a cheap 1080p TN panel with 240hz refresh rate to play shooters? Do you want better viewing angles and more accurate colours with a higher resolution? What do you want?

    The next series of monitors will be some sort of OLED/MicroLED variant. But that hasn't even hit the monitor sector as a mainstream thing as of yet.

    As of right now you want either:
    -1440p/4k
    -Offers 120/144hz
    -Frame Rate Control
    -Freesync
    -1ms input lag (through reviews). Not more then 5ms input lag. No, not g2g, input lag.

    I don't know what the "best" panel is but Innolux is looking pretty good from what I've seen. It's found in benq EL series, Gigabyte to name a few.

    As I have said, I'm not looking for anything specific, but maybe in less than 500$ range. I know how to compare the specs, down to the minute details (like 4:4:4 getting downsampled to 4:2:2 when using 10-bit color problem on Asus PG27UQ). Ofcourse, TN models have higher res & fps, while IPS monitors have better picture quality and colors in every price bracket. I'm not asking for advice (regarding which monitor to buy) actually, but rather confirmation.

    I merely want to point out (and confirm/discuss) ... that slightly updated monitors are inbound starting next week or not. Could you be kind enough to check your local retailer website (one that is updated often), to see if a majority of monitors are "out of stock"?

    Yes, there is something wrong with buying a monitor that is 2years old, specially if there is a new updated version of that monitor that fits in the same price range is inbound. Look at BenQ SW2700PT vs SW270c (just announced) and compare the specs carefully (specially HDCP).

    Well based on the recently announced displays & their estimated pricing (from computex 2019), I don't think I can get 2k/4k+IPS+120/144hz in under 500$ definitely.

    Not immediately, no, but prices will settle in time.

    Just read the AUO quarterly update. And it seems I was right. It might be worth it to wait a few months :)

    A former telepoint manager told me the tech of today's screens is at a 99% been there done that level. There's nothing truly new to expect that will blow us away.

    There's 8K but that's a joke imo, we dont even have true 4K content everywhere.

    So apparently the next upcoming tech are super flat screens that you can hang on walls like a piece of animated paper.

    4k and up is just an excuse to take our money.
