Im looking at 27" up.


I need something 100% sRGB 1440p or 4k. I am considering an Xbox 1X.


But I also will connect my ultrabook to it occasionally to both edit single photo files (keepers) and to play Civ 5 level games, ie things that will run on an IGP on lowish settings.


I dont think HDR is possible on a monitor is it? Its really a TV technology?


$800 max. Anyone bought similar or any ideas?

A quick peek through the googlebox has told me the Phillips 328P6AUBREB might be what would suit you. Give it a coat of looking on.

Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

yeah I did a google but its very mixed advice. thanks, Ill take a look at that.


if I could do HDR i would definitely buy an xbox one x, 4k doesnt worry me much as 1440p at this size is the sweet spot imo. but hard to get something that can do Photo editing as well.


im looking closely at buying the Note 8 phone, would be awesome if you could connect xbox one x to its amoled 1440p screen with hdr hahaha.

Definitely a GREAT photo editing panel for photo/video editing. 99% adobe RGB for $650 is cheap.


No mention of response times, but i suspect it would not be suitable for high speed from an xbox etc.

Correction, 4ms GtG isnt toooo bad.


Definitely need HDMI 2.0 for HDR.

HDR gaming wise this samsung really hits the mark. it boosts to 600 nits, whilst thats not the 1000 mark HDR10 want OEMs to aim for, it is stated its a mark that is ideal for hdr10. it just means the hdr 10 wont be as good.


so you are getting a curved 32 inch 1440p hdr monitor which boosts to 600 nits in HDR. It should down sample down to 1440p quite nicely.,review-5160.html


Wow 125% sRGB, 95% p3. Ok Photo editing tick.


1ms response time, tick.


144hz freesync, tick.


It used QLED for more control of colour, tick.


$1200, boooo haha. Ill check the 27" price.


$1k for the 27". oh thats a tough choice.
