I just see it as another "must have" (rolls his eyes) thing on a monitor. AKA - crap.

I mean yeah, having a monitor or TV that bright is nice when you are sat 20 ft away, but what use is it when you practically have your bloody nose pushed to it?

I've seen a proper HDR TV, I could see the difference but not sure it's something I would actually go for, Didn't really do anything for me.

It's uber brightness lol. I mean yeah it's a bit more in depth than that but put simply it's just the ability to be super bright without losing colour accuracy. Which as I said, is good for a TV especially if you are watching in the dark (because who wants to see grey washed out rubbish?) but I just fail to see any significance *at all* when it comes to gaming.

But, as much as it saddens me, monitors have become Epeen items and people will pay for useless tech. It's been proven many times over. OCUK is the worst. They have a million page* thread where people basically buy every new monitor that comes out. There's like these guys who serial buy monitors, then send them back when they notice a tiny bit of BLB. Some dude went through like 7. I bet they hated him

*probably highly exaggerated, but you get my point.

As bad as me and my ROG Swift epidemic albeit mine was because I was getting replacement monitors that would flicker like a strobe light, 1 was covered in actual dirt, 1 had a smell emanating from it akin to the bog of eternal stench etc etc... BLB though I could't give 2 hoots about.

HDR is worth it. Problem is nothing on the market (including TVs for the most part) have proper HDR support. In addition to little content having HDR support really just means it's going to take a while. I'd personally wait a few years. And by that time we will have more content and better products with HDR support

There’s also the Acer Predator Z35P and the Dell Alienware AW3418DW, which I absolutely loved. Best monitor I’ve tried and the best looking as well. Had to return it due to the DisplayPort was defective unfortunately. But the first chance I’ll get, I’ll buy it

Dell honestly makes the best monitors (and laptops too imo)

The panel is the same in both the dell and acer and I don't think the dell is worth the 400 buck premium
