For the price, this seems like a good 29inch 1080p ultrawide monitor. But how does the HDR10 feature work when the monitor isn't very bright and has such low contrast?

Colour Depth (Num of Colours) 8bits( 6bit+FRC), 16.7M
Pixel Pitch (mm) 0.2628x0.2628
Resolution 2560 x 1080
Brightness (Typ.) 300(Typ), 240(min) cd/m2
HDR (High Dynamic Range) HDR10
Contrast Ratio (Original) 1000:1 (Typ)


Do any of you own one of these - if so, how is it?

That monitor can't have HDR10 support, it doesn't even have 8bit+FRC or 10bit colour depth.
Though I guess I could be wrong.

Wikipedia said:
...HDR10, was announced on August 27, 2015, by the Consumer Technology Association and which uses the wide-gamut Rec. 2020 color space, a bit depth of 10-bits,...

That's what confuses me. How can LG list HDR10 compliance as a feature of the monitor, when it doesn't meet the HDR10 requirements.

They can write whatever they want, as long as it accepts/identifies a HDR signal they could even advertise a monochromatic 6-bit 1280x960 display with "HDR10".

What's important are the certifications -
- UHD Premium Certificate
- G-sync HDR
- VESA DisplayHDR 600 and DisplayHDR 1000

If the monitor hasn't one of those, it's probably useless for HDR.
