Would have bought this if it wasn't 27". That's just too small for 4k. Those 34" Ultrawides with lower resolutions are more appealing than this. Don't think I can go from 40" to 27" even if I jump from 60hz to 144hz. If this was at least 32" I would have bought on day 1.

I enjoy the Magic Color(gamma) and Dynamic Contrast extended features of my monitor very much.
I'm sure they will be coveted the same in the eyes of the users. You just cannot compare the reliability of normal LCDs to other technologies however much we wish to improve upon them.
The joke is not on this monitor - it fulfills the HDR10 specification to the letter. It is actually a ploy on Nvidia users who thought they would employ the full Dolby Vision (12-bit, 10,000 contrast) standard with their would be superior hardware. The standards are established when oems establish them, not the moment your virtual support level says so.

What's up with a thick bezel? That resolution is way too small for a 27". The design isn't bad overall but I still prefer PG279Q looks.

Is the size thing just a preference. Same resolution, smaller screen, smaller pixels, higher DPI... is this a good that as long as its not too small for where your sitting? or is it just the fact that on a 36 you wont notice a quality loss and your get a bigger screen? I was measuring a 34 today and that was just huge for me.

I use a 32" Crossover 324k and I love, Love, the Size.



32" Is on the Left, 27" 1440p Qnix is on the Right.

I've had 24" (Typing on it at work to you right now)

Used the 27" for a Good 2 years, and the 32" for over 6 months at this point.

Guru3d posted this article but then retracted it. Couldn't find it again until this one. This looks interesting. I guess the new cards need HDMI2.1, correct?

I agree with others that the size is too small. 4K should be at least 32". The price is going to be outrageous. Sucks that my 65" HDR TV is cheaper than a 27" monitor...

Finally the HDR panels are releasing, I'm jumping on the ultra-wide bandwagon myself, but 4K 144 is mental.
