I want to pick one up, but I'd rather wait until hdmi 2.1 cards show up and get a C9 on sale with an extended warranty. That is, if 4k 120hz 444 works on them. $3,800 is on the high side.

meh review, but it's somethin', not sure if it has HDR...

Has some questionable statements:

https://www.cnet.com/reviews/alienwa...onitor-review/

"If you're familiar with Dell monitors, you'll recognize the Smart HDR modes -- in this case, game, movie, desktop and reference -- which report to Windows whether it can toggle its HDR settings. If you've chosen the game setting, Windows can enable it for games or wide-color gamut. If you want it for movies, you'll have to enable that setting instead."

"In fact, G-Sync support is slated to come to LG's TVs soon, thanks to the company's rollout of HDMI 2.1 in its 2019 TVs and Nvidia's imminent firmware upgrade to 2.1 for its RTX graphics cards."



Make this a 30-40" monitor, add G-Sync Ultimate and I'll pay the early adopter tax.
