Max Zamora says:

Okay… So you can’t watch HDR movies because of web browsers… But there’s pirating right? If you have legal access to a movie you rented or bought, you can now pirate it. Plus, I think the Netflix Windows App has HDR support

Adrian S.S.L says:

“super saturated and wrong” isn’t that the definition of HDR ?

Nemesis KING_X2T says:

To Linus. Please make a video on flat monitors vs ultrawide curved monitors taking about the same price.And also which is the best choice for gamers

Charles Kuhn says:

Meh, I’d rather have a sony 900xe and a good 1440p 144hz display for the same price

Axerocker85 says:

I got this Monitor but HDR doesn’t want to work in Windows. When acitvated I get a green screen. I think its a driver problem right now? says:

Can you use this Monitor to color grade HDR?

MrBroxMan says:

5:04 me when i turn on the pc at 6am while forgetting to reduce the screen brightness the night before.

Nick Rodrigez says:

You’re not getting true HDR with IPS…

20k:1 contrast, yeah sure… It’s an IPS, so nope. Also the mighty Sony Z9D (best LED display there is today, appart from Sony’s 10.000 nit CES demo) with it’s 650 dimming zones is “only about 10k:1”.

Josh Jones says:

can buy a sled tv for that price

Sora CH says:

5:05 the lights of GOD xD

You could try “telescopic action” for the up and down motion…. or “E.T. neck”. 🙂

E. J. Stark says:

Matte screen. That’s a big NOPE. Give me Glossy or semi glossy

Captian Morgan says:

Ah, plasma. How I’ve missed you. I purchased one of the last plasma TVs (at a great price too since every one wanted LED). Eventually it died too badly to be fixed….
