Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I need a monitor that costs no more than £550 and it needs to include...

  • 1440p or higher display
  • 144Hz Refresh Rate
  • Good variety of colours
  • At least one HDMI 2.0 port
  • 4 millisecond response time or better
  • HDR

If you can, please include a link, thanks!

Even during good time. I don't think I can spend €1500 on a gaming monitor and then another €1500 for a graphics card. I broke my gaming monitor two weeks ago. Today order an AOC CU34G2X. Hope there is no dead pixel.

Under £550, you can forget real HDR.

Ok so at what price can you get real HDR?

Just out of curiosity, what is the highest amount of nit you can get in a monitor?

I believe there are monitors with 3000 nits. Apple Pro Display XDR is 1600 nits.

Living the dream, almost. But I have to say Samsung CRG9 is just as good.

 

I take every opportunity to flex so I thank you for this one

I suggested Samsung Odyssy G7 - you will actually get a real HDR with that and it should fit your budget. 

 

It got HDR600 certification which mean it does at least have a local dimming feature, which is a lot better than LG 27GL850 that only do HDR400

 

Nit brightness isn't that importnat when it comes to HDR. It's actually those local dimming zone that will give you the contrast necessary to give you clarity in bright and dark area that people associated with HDR. A higher end HDR monitor will simply have more of those local dimming zones.
