Most games I've play in HDR seem to artistically choose grey blacks. It's not a display thing because it's visible even on OLED.

DMC5, RE2 Remake, Sekiro, etc. All these games produce greyish blacks.

The only game that got decently dark was Farcry 5.

It's night time. Camera is just making it appear much brighter.

this weekend i took some time to test mine, bleed quite inexistent, no dead pixels, i am very satisfied with it. I come from a 1440p VA panel (lg 32GK850G) and differences (in better) are evident
HDR both on games and videos is awesome as well as the res increase (from 1440p)
i also found the default calibratin fine, i tried tftcentral settings but i see the panel too dark

also in hdr with luminance setteted at 80 i found it too bright, and setted to 40, sweet spot for me

i keep hdr off from windows (it auto turns on when launching an supported game) and brought the slider up to 70 when on

last thing, i cannot get FF XV working with HDR but now i see it requires hdr ON from windows before starting the game

the division 2, Anthem and BF5 looks awesome with HDR, i'm finally in love with it

I received this email today, figured I'd post this if anyone still cares. I doubt anything is happening in the end but it is what it is for now.

Can confirm black is grey in Origins. Saw it on my oled as well. This happens in hdr mode only. Brightness is at default 50%; if I lower this then black becomes darker but the whole picture is dim overall and hdr picture is messed up. The fact that this game still has brightness slider in hdr mode signals sth wrong already. Not sure about Odyssey.

How was your VA panel? Is the black much better than this IPS one? I kinda regret purchasing this monitor for such high price instead of a VA tv because the blooming on ips is too much.

I’m surprised you set reference white to 40. On my monitor, reference white at 90 gives the highest max luminance (~1200 nits). Lowering it and the monitor will not reach its full hdr punchiness potential. This monitor really shines in bright scenes. It beats the oled with ease. But in dark scenes with tiny highlights it looks like ass due to blooming.

That LG was awesome (till i tired this asus anyway) the black is fine on VA but not MUCH better than this Asus
you have not to regret your purchase, trust me. the only (light) blooming i have is watching videos, ingame i don't notice issues

i setted it to 40 cause i noticed watching videos on youtube try this one for eg:
at 0:46 with hig luminance above 40/50 you cannot distinguish the white panles of the dj's console
there's other videos to make compares, i remember there waere a snake on a video and with high luminance you cannot see the scales of the skin, lowering it they came visible

i'm using it @92hz 4:4:4 10bit, tonight maybe i'll try if there's any difference with srgb

I think my fan is busted, It sounds like a tractor lol. Even when Idle its literally annoying now. I have been playing a lot of division 2 in HDR..may be it killed it.

I dont even know why its spinning like that, the monitor is really cool to touch and its winter here.

Make sure you watch that youtube video on microsoft edge instead of chrome. Chrome will make hdr highlights blown out. At least that’s the case for me. I used Chrome to fine tune reference white and I also end up with 40-50, but if I use Edge it needs to be at 80-90.

As for the blooming, I notice it everwhere whenever a tiny bright spots on a black background. Maybe because your reference white is lower so hdr contents are dimmer so blooming is less severe
