    My LG monitors are dying with just a couple years use. I think they should check their quality standards as I probably will be looking at another brand for my next purchase.

    If its not 4K 120hz with HDR 1000 then its probably a waste of time. Bring on some 43" BFGD's

    Plenty of us haven't hopped on the 4K wagon yet due to performance issues ;). The recent 4K monitors incapable of handling their listed specs (eg. PG27UQ) without compression has kept me away.

    Quite interesting that they turned some specs around for the 27", at first it had G-Sync and a 165Hz OC possibility. 600 to 650 would be a great price for these.

    I like Samsung and I have a few. However they are known for having high input lag.

    Not that I've seen. Now that I've been spoiled by AMOLED on my phone and LG's OLED on my TV the only thing I see when I use my monitor is subpar black levels.

    I've been waiting for the ASUS/Acer FALD VA Ultrawides since 2017 - part of me thinks they might be cancelled but they were rumored to have a static 2500:1 contrast ratio which is much better than any IPS i've seen. With Mini/MicroLED coming up though I'm wondering if it's just worth waiting for that.

    meanwhile my cheap 10 years old 22 inch 16:10 monitor is still my secondary although i had to repair it my self with a cheap 3 bucks soldering iron literally an iron with a power plug :p

    if they open and then they shut down after showing picture for 1 or few seconds ...or opening and closing is the capacitors you can easily do a fix your self for like 1-2 bucks for the right capacitors .... fixed 8 monitors like that last 6-7 years ((not just lg ))

    Problem with oleds as gaming monitors is the pixel response times and motion blur, traditional oleds can't reset fast enough to get to that <5ms that fps gamers crave, but joled and Samsung are working on oleds with filtering to boost the response time.

    450 nitere is plenty and frankly any higher makes them very uncomfortable to use especially during the summer time.
    Seeing 1000 nitere sounds good and looks amazing but using a screen with such brightness generates heat that ultimately gets thrown into the users face.
    Sound ok during the winter time but in the summer it isnt nice.
    You dont see that advertised when purchasing a screen.
    If there was a temp test of a screen at full brightness from say 2 feet away it would be a good metric to help people pick their displays.
    Curved screens might end up being hotter as it wraps itself around the user.
    Good or bad idea i do not know.

    If they made that 27" 2K monitor with a MiniLED backlight with 1,000+ dimming zones this would be my new monitor.

    If your a PC Gamer with Nvidia cards you must have DisplayHDR 1000 and G-Sync Ultimate set up ... The hole 1000 Nits HDR is a game changer!

    People talk about 4K Gaming all the time I laugh at them and say what's driving that 4K you speak of?? I own 2080 NVlink setup and I definitely can not run 4K Ultra mode properly. Yeah sure turned down the games from Ultra mode to medium or low settings to keep those FPS smooth at 4K no thanks ... Get real people

    LG OLED TVs are awesome TVs ... Not for gaming .... LG is lacking in monitors... Then there's Samsung meh...

    Monitor I have have been waiting for 3 years now is ROG SWIFT PG35VQ

    That's my dream monitor ...

    I bought the very first gen 3440x1440 LG Ultrawide (probably like 7 years ago now?). Still going strong, I've never had any issues with it. No dead pixels, no light leaks, no power supply issues, etc. Obviously every panel is different but figured I'd add my anecdote as well.

    When dropping *real* cash on a quality monitor like the ones in this article, you really want to find a local store to buy from or at least a vendor that will accept returns without hassle. I remember when these first came out it seemed like every other post had someone complaining about light bleed, so I was hesitant to buy anything until I was sure I'd be able to return it without issue if if I got a bunk panel too. Fortunately it has never had any issues, nor has another that I got for a family member.

    That 38" 3840x1600 with G-Sync looks like a beauty.

    MSI 1080 Ti Gaming X SLI
    Not sure what you are doing wrong then, I bought two 1080Ti MSI Gaming X the day they released, and has played 4K60 perfectly smooth for two years now, and its a blast on my home cinema TV. Sure, I tend to tweak by turning down things like AA and settings that blur the image, though with 90% of the settings on Ultra. Witcher 3, Wildlands etc. looks superior in 4K, as many games render with higher res on textures and distant objects when res goes up. Witcher 3 looks like a mosh in the distance at HD compared to 4K.. if your FPS suffer on the 2080 it must either be games not supporting SLI or you not making the small right tweaks.. like Wildlands has a few settings where on ultra you cant even tell the difference from high when comparing screenshots, still the difference might be 20fps. Go tweak it right and you will love the 4K :) I bet hdr cost more than normal though, so that will add some fpsloss for you, my tv is early 4K before hdr, so I do regular 4K for now, waiting for microled before upgrade. I agree hdr is a game changer, though so was 4K in my opinion. :)

    Veeery interested in that 38 inch. Really want to go ultrawide and that's not too far off 4k plus it's 175hz! It would be easier to run than 4k and look similar. Checking out reviews for sure.

    Overpriced and I reckon they're having problems too. Plus, I don't like curved monitors and all "good" models are curved. I really have no idea what to try next.
    Unfortunately I have no repairing skills. The repair I think it wouldn't be too hard, but what's hard is diagnosing what's wrong. I have a faulty Samsung monitor, I think it's the transformers for the backlight tubes. It takes two and they're expensive to replace. The other faulty monitor is an LG that has the menu system acting up. I can't even open the thing, there isn't any screw or tutorials online. I wouldn't be able to repair the board also. I guess I have no luck!
    The panel I have now is the second one: the first had a row of vertical pixels die within the first 14 days of use.
    Man, I don't know, but LG sucks in my book. First panel life was 5 years, second panel is giving backlight problems after 3 years and this panel was toasted within 14 days...bad luck?
