Best 1440p 27in with HDR and a KVM?

I know the M27Q exists and honestly, I might just settle and get that but I was curious if there were any "better" monitors in that same space? I know the price is unbeatable on the M27Q but that's not a huge deal as I'd be willing to drop more money on a "better" monitor if one exists that has a KVM and HDR support.

 

I say "better" because I know that can be highly subjective.

Do you want real HDR or a monitor that can accept an HDR signal but doesn't provide HDR experience? For real HDR, the AOC Agon AG274QXM is probably a good choice.

LTT or one of the other channels just did a video on what yesterday, actually.

Coincidentally enough, I just watched that video today haha. The downsides to that particular monitor are the fact that it's not available yet (end of March or early April) and it's from Pixio... a brand I've never heard of until today 😛

How did i miss this monitor so far? It actually seems like a great choice. There are no reviews from the big reputable sources like HUB and RTINGS even thought this has been out for months it seems, but a >500 dimming zone 170Hz 1440p monitor sounds almost too good to be true! And there is even a 240Hz variant coming. Damn, AOC really stepped it up and somehow managed to completely miss someone like me who is normally all over new monitors like these.

Yeah I don't know how this one hasn't been receiving any attention so far, it looks great on paper. I saw it pop up in a shop I frequently browse and it got me curious, but there are no reputable reviews so far, seems availability is very poor. It got released 3 months ago, but apparently not many units are being shipped, so they might not have review samples available, no need to spend marketing budget when all units are selling anyway.
