Anything OLED will take a long time to down in price. ;P

For me, that's why an IPS/HDR monitor (4 or 8K) makes for such a comparable alternative. Only an OLED display can top it.

 Unfortunately OLED has burn in and image retention issues which make them unsuitable for pc monitors.

Agreed. For those thinking about getting an oled down the line, a self emissive led technology called mirco led is on the way. All the benefits of oled, no burn in.

 

I bought a Samsung Qled last year for the same reason. Not to mention it hits over 1500 nits, excellent for hdr content.

I hope my plasma keeps going on, until oleds became more afordable. Lcd are terrible.

I used to think that. And it was probably true 10 years ago. But, the reality is that many modern LCD televisions are great.  

It is unfortunate that plasma didn't work out in the market long-term. It has a lot of benefits over LCD.  In many respects, the change from plasma to LCD set television performance back a decade or so.  But, the industry has moved past that. A new, mid-level LCD television performs better than very good plasma TVs did near the end of their time on the market.



Okay, I take back everything I said about 4k alone without HDR. I spent the evening last night with my 32 inch 1080 hooked up to my pro and I'm flabbergasted how bad it looks now, even putting HDR aside the difference from 4k down is more than that of 1080. Netflix, games, text.. Even the menu icon are so drastically more clear. I'm stubbed I hadn't been noticing the difference until I went back to native 1080 instead of the 1080 mode on my 4k TV which must do a really good job of upscaling 1080p.



 

Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

Oh and there is a new kind of HDR content in film with The umbrella academy on Netflix. Every window shines days of sunlight in as if they were passing into your room through the TV, flash photography blinds you like it would in real life, the gun fire is the same and it's fucking incredible to watch. It doesn't do much with colour but what is there is amazing. The windows,n light sources and gubfire particularly which there is a lot of, are all absolutely stunning and with 4k it's like everything has great depth and punches right off the screen. A real feast for the eyes.

Do you find 4k to be impressive with HDR turned off?

It's good in film but I'm underwhelmed by it in games, in Horizon for example it just looks like aggressive anti ailsing was applied and it GOW it just makes the picture sharper, Re2 is again the same as horizon. In Detroit become human the difference is barely noticeable without HDR on.

GT sport in cockpit view is one of the few games where 4k makes a difference where it makes everything scale much better. I am, however playing on a 47 inch screen at 8 or 9 feet. What size you on and have you compared with a 1080p screen since your upgrade?

65" 5 feet away, pixels really make a difference to me.

Yes, at that distance, on that size of display, the difference should be very easy to see.  But, most people do not sit 5 feet away from a 65 inch display.

I know it. They go by those charts that are very bad saying the minimum distance you need to be from the screens. They are more like charts on if you stay closer than that you'll see the pixels than it is bad for you to sit closer.

I still want 10-15 more inches and 8k resolution to be happy.

You are probably rigth in terms of overall picture quality, but theres One área that i still see problems for lcd. Screen uniformity. I still see screen bleeding and/or blooming. And i find that very destrating and i dont see that on Oleds. Black is black



As a color-blind people, HDR never interested me. Are there any advantages in this case anyway ? Could another color-blind tell us about his experience ?

It was already mentioned here, the contrast.

You'll be able to differentiate much better the levels of dark or light. So when you are in a night scene or open area with lot of sunlight you'll see better all the elements on the screen instead of what we have today that things get hidden in plain sight due to scene being to dark or bright.

But of course the effect will need both a good panel and content. Some "HDR" panel and content are very light on the contrast ratio.
