LG 32UD99 4k HDR monitor- anyone crazy about this? - Page 7

post #61 of 67
So LG has finally updated their page - http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-32UD99-W-4k-uhd-led-monitor - showing the $999 list price and all specs, with some new photos I think.

Anyone seen any more info on the HDR/Brightness issue that showed up on YouTube with a PS4 Pro? I won't be using a PS4 with this so don't care too much but don't know if it's a pervasive HDR issue or not.

Oh, and the 32UD89-W is up as well - http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-32UD89-W-4k-uhd-led-monitor

There won't be an update IMO. The screen lacks the brightness to properly display dark detail in HDR mode.

Nits look low, but not awful. Hopefully it's a native 10-bit with wcg, else it'd be a pretty meh HDR screen.

First, ProArt PA32U will be available Q3 2017 for $1799-$1999 USD
The PA32U is really pricey for me, it's as expensive as a MAC 5K! Moreover, if its date of offering is too late, I can't
wait for half a year.


Second, I should admit PU32A is better than LG32UD99, it covers 99.5% Adobe RGB color space, and has a full-array
LED backlight, 1,000cd/m2 brightness, all the features make PA32U a fancy monitor.
Although the specs of PA32U is very attractive, I wonder a monitor has 1,000cd/m2 brightness is good for everyday use.
As we know, compare with PC monitor, TV has much higher brightness and contract, so it is harmful to eyes,
and it's better to watch tv at a distance more than 2 meters. Usually, a monitor is close to eyes during be used, high brightness
and contract make eyes get tired easily.

So, I'm going to LG 32UD99, if I want a great HDR experience, I will buy an OLED TV, which will be much
better than all HDR monitors.thumb.gif

LG 32UD99 is really poor for HDR. If you're saying you don't need a great HDR experience, wouldn't you be better off buying just a 4K UHD display instead?
Also, this monitor will have much better color accuracy than OLED TVs due to being factory calibrated. And that is the peak brightness, while working at the computer it won't be that high. Those are the peaks you'd notice in movies or games, when you'll probably be further away from the monitor.

I know there have been various prices mentioned but JJ himself, from ASUS, said the price was nearer $1500-1600. Also release was expected late Q1, early Q2... of course there's no guarantee any of this will hold up.


The 1,000 nits, is peak brightness, so I assume not necessarily the sustained average across the whole panel. It is more likely that the local dimming zones are controlled in such a way, to have the brightest points contrast against the near black regions. I may be totally wrong, and I certainly don't know how G-SYNC HDR will implement HDR, so I would wait until someone with greater knowledge chimes in.

Where did you read that by JJ?

It was in one of the few videos about the monitors during CES 2017.


He was the one presenting the video. I'll have a look if i can.


Here we are, around 1.26.

There's another from pcper as well If I recall, that mentions the same price. bare in mind though, since it now looks like the panel will actually be manufactured, after the 27 144hz version, and not the stated Q1, early Q2, the price might also be bunkum.

This is a crap monitor with very bad HDR. Besides that its decent but not worth it at all because its priced higher due to the supposed HDR function.

Any product can be labelled with HDR10 when it can process the signal. The real dough is about showing the HDR10 image and this monitor clearly lacks the options to properly show the image and its not allowed to label it as HDR premium. Its HDR will be like on a cheap HDR tv. Yes u will see something but it wont look very good. U need around 1000nits of peak brightness to get the real pop and aww effect and this monitor has half of it.

Seems like we need to dish out 2K for 27" to get some decent HDR to a monitor which is plain crazy.
