*pre-ordered* Having owned the LG 27" OLED since launch I'm sure this will be great as well.

Tempting... I'm looking forward to the reviews by HUB and RTINGS.

Only 275 nits but hdr400 certified?..

Might wanna go watch some reviews of these LG monitor panels. Every one ive seen reviewed has a horrible antiglare coating, looks like vaseline smeared all over the screen. The TVs dont have it but they are putting it on the PC monitors and its awful. [youtube=5jDqdhf-RdM]

275 nits is the average, 1300-ish is the peak, and HDR 400 is a setting. numbers aren't everything - especially when based on a 10% window. more importantly there is infinite contrast with oleds. a typical SDR screen averages between 150 and 200 nits, a movie theater 50-75 nits but because these are numbers marketing has a field day with disingenuous and semi-false advertising - just like GtG when IPS came out rest assured, any oled is vastly superior to any other display no matter how bright a room is

Is this the one that doesn`t have DP2.1? If it is, then they can keep it

this is for a very good reason. although you aren't alone in disliking anti-glare there are two very important facts: 1) monitors are designed for cubicles, many of which are by windows or have fluorescent lighting. you never want a glossy screen at work unless you like doing your makeup at the job. ironically, gaming monitors are still designed with this paradigm. 2) in the real world, once you have an oled in your system the screen coating for 95% of the owners doesn't matter compared to the uplift to your system. in addition, you tubers have to distinguish themselves to get views. the more faux controversy/outrage the more views. this issue is truly in the category of "1st world problems". the answer is simple - don't buy what you don't like. but also be very aware that your opinion is your own and there are many different ones on the same subject

it has to have DP2.1 or it couldn't hit 144Hz @ 4k

DisplayPort version is not really specified on the product page, but if you look at the actual CES press release, it's DisplayPort 1.4. According to VESA CVT 2.1 timings spreadsheet, 4K 240 Hz requires at least 55 Gbps even with reduced blanking formula, so UHBR20 (80 Gbps) mode is needed to transmit 240 Hz uncompressed video signal; unfortunately NVidia RTX 3000 and 4000 series only have DisplayPort 1.4, RNDA2 has UHBR10 (40 Gbps) and consumer RDNA3 cards support UBHR13.5 (54 Gbps), according to the "HDMI 2.1 FRL and DisplayPort 2.1 UHBR video sources" thread on AVS Forum: https://www.avsforum.com/threads/hdmi-2-1-frl-and-displayport-2-1-uhbr-video-sources-for-gaming-home-theatre-pc-and-viewing-experience.3259197/ Of all recently announced 240 Hz OLED / QD-OLED 4K gaming monitors, only Gigabyte AORUS FO32U2P (the one that ends with P, not the regular U2) has DisplayPort 2.1 with UHBR20 (80 Gbps) mode. All other such displays, including Odyssey OLED G9 S49CG954SN, Gigabyte AORUS FO32U2, ASUS ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDM, MSI MPG49CQP, and MSI MAG 321UPX / 321URX, come with DisplayPort 1.4 and HBR3 (32.4 Gbps), so they have to use DSC compression for anything above 120 Hz. There are also two QLED monitors (i.e. LCD panel with LED / mini-LED backlight and QD color filters), 4K 160 Hz ASUS ROG Swift PG32UQXR which should support UHBR10 (40 Gbps), and 240 Hz 57" Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 S57CG952NN with an ultrawide dual-4K (7680x2160) VA panel - and even though it supports UHBR20 (80 Gbps), this bandwidth is not enough to transmit uncompressed 240 Hz signal at its native resolution.

It supports DSC and compression rate can be anything from 1 to 1:3 (67%), so it would support 240 Hz even on HBR3 (32.4 Gbps) link; compression artifacts would become an issue though. Unfortunately modern displays do not allow the user to control DSC settings through the menu, neither they provide any information on the negotiated compression rate, or even indicate if DSC is active.

That Vaseline smear anti glare coating is why one reasons why I aviod lg now seeing most there monitors use it, and secondary reason why last ips monitor I tried which was lg went back first being the ips glow which my ocd was never gonna allow me to deal with either. still would love oiled monitor that is 27” that don’t cost more the freaking 50” even if it was only 60hz

holy cow this actually makes me angry with VESA because of the difficulties this places on the end user in an earlier thread i was getting on HDMI Forum for killing open source but allowing confusion in the marketplace by continuing to license older standards. i never understood how variable the compression rate was. i had mistakenly thought it was fixed or had a narrow rate. this really answers a lot of questions where the flaw was focused on the cabling re: artefacting. since all the cables are backwards compatible one of the easiest ways i've avoided problems was to replace all of my DP & HDMI cables each time i buy something with a new standard. i used to be "that guy" who kept all of his cables and make myself have to work out any issues presented by using the stuff i had on hand instead of purpose bought. that's expensive but not as time consuming as a troubleshooting snipe hunt or as frustrating as realizing you did this to yourself

DSC compression rate is not fixed and the encoder allows you to specify target bpp (bits per pixel) in parameter settings for each compressed frame (and even down to a group of pixels). Though the target bpp field is made of 6-bit integer and 4-bit fractional (1/16 hexadecimal) parts to allow fine tuning, which for example makes it possible to compress a 24 bpp stream into effectively 23.9375 bpp stream (2.6% compression), the integer part can be set as low as 8 bpp (in RGB 4:4:4 and YCC 4:2:2 modes) - so maximum comperssion rates of 1:3 (67%), 1:3.75 (73%) and 1:4.5 (78%) are possible in 24, 30 and 36 bpp color modes.

@Hilbert Hagedoorn Maybe it's worth throwing in "True Black" to the HDR400 spec listed for those who aren't familiar? Real HDR has been priced out of range, & uncommon enough that most people don't know the difference between the specs and what levels of what is actually useful or real enough HDR. HDR400 rated monitors still trick people to this day into thinking it has some semblance HDR support, most people probably don't know that the HDR400 TB OLEDs have is not comparable/is real HDR worlds & better.

I just bought the LG Ultra gear ips 27in Gr75Q 1440p monitor, as LG are quite good quality monitors, and it was time to replace my 1080p optix, but i am going to leave Qled for a year or two until they mature a but more and the prices come down a bit, but i think we are almost at the point were Oled becomes the norm display and lcd goes the wax cylinder.
