Are those MiniLED Samsung monitors as bad as some say?

Are those MiniLED Samsung monitors as bad as some say?

They are the only non-OLED monitors with HDR that doesnt suck dick. I'd buy an OLED but its a death sentence for it to be on a device that has a taskbar or browser visible in one place 90% of the time

        you never notice it when you do actual work on your machine. for consuming media there are TVs with far better specs than any monitor

        PC displays fricking suck now. Go dumpster dive a 40" TV and don't give these shysters a nickel until they come up with something worth a premium.

        Just turn your screen off.

        Well yes that's the problem isn't it, when it's supposed to be night the blacks on your IPS are so bad the image looks like day

    I had the 4k 32" 165hz Neo G7 for 18 months. The colors are off, the curve sucks, its really not that bright unless in HDR-specific scenes. My first MiniLED could hit 1000 nits across the whole panel but this pos is limited at 350-400 nits with 1152 zones. Just too much compromise. I really missed IPS and ended up moving to QD-OLED 4K 240hz in March of this year. If you can get a G7 or G8 in the $500-$700 range it's okay, but I would save for a QD-OLED with a 3yr burn-in warranty. I don't regret the switch.

      How is the burn-in in your new monitor?

      Are you doing anything to mitigate it?

        there is none yet and I have a screensaver that starts a few minutes after I leave my desk. I vary my web browser windows from the center to full screen quite often but I would do that anyway. Taskbar is hidden. Not much else.

          Why do people put screen savers instead of just...turning your monitor black automatically

            Sometimes it is set to black, sometimes I manually turn it off, and sometimes it's a default windows screensaver with a bunch of black anyway. Whatever works.

    No it's not, It's not 2018 anymore. QD-OLEDs come with 3-5 year warranties that cover burn in, it'll never be an issue

      The burn-in is still there, they just hide it by having the controller track amp hours for every pixel. Eventually the screen just fades to potato, which is why 'professional OLED' doesn't exist.

        The point is that as soon as it's noticable or dimmed too much within 3-5 years you get a new one for free and if it happens in 5 years 1 month we'll have QD-LED monitors with none of these issues so you can straight upgrade

          What actually happens is you try to send it back after 3 years and they tell you the monitor is fine but you need to pay them $200 if you want it back.

            Nobody can afford to issue a warranty with a 100% claim rate. They'll either renege or shut down the division.

            Dell won't renege on warranty it would be a disaster, easier for them to take the loss. I think truly with modern anti-burn in tech most normie users will never have an issue. Power users like people here will likely have an issue but them being a minority of purchases will just be absorbed if they do have an issue

    do not buy samsung, ever, especially the curved g7 monitors. the top of screen literally delaminates from the frame over time so you get a nice fat gap that bleeds backlight and lets in dust

    My laptop has a mini-led screen. Games look fantastic on it but the blooming is pretty distracting when browsing the web or doing work, especially with dark mode on.

    When are you going to talk about real issues, like the fact there are absolute tons of brand new, new model monitors out there that are STILL using HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.2 connectors?

    What's the successor to OLED? I just ordered a 55" LG C3 and it was more than i think a small-medium sized tv should cost. I get it supposedly looks amazing, but geez. I guess we'll find out. Coming from a 15 year old 32" Insignia LCD tv.

      Logically microLED. Realistically higher quality IPS panels with more lighting zones.

        IPS with 720p/1080p microLED backlighting is going to happen long before pure microLED is affordable. MicroLED backlighting might even kill VA panels if they don't improve low-luminance high-contrast motion performance. The biggest problem with microLED is actually laying them out into a usable grid, so lower resolutions will be much easier and thus more affordable, and since LCD panels are dirt cheap, it seems like a no brainer to use a relatively low resolution grid of microLEDs as the backlight for a cheap 4K/8K LCD.

    If you have a functioning monitor, keep it and wait a few years for the Chinese brands to start releasing more with 2,000 zones or so for under $500.

    Just buy a decent IPS and remove the matte coating.

    OLED sucks dick for productivity, text clarity is dogshit, the auto dimming for white sections of screen is distracting as frick, burn in, etc.

    WOLED for TV’s, Glossified IPS for Desktop, MiniLED for desktop once the zone counts get high enough to make blooming a non issue, and in 10 years consumer MicroLED is the holy grail.
