Should I do it? The alternative is the MSI MPG 271QRX.

    I have the AW3423DW and I'm very satisfied. I don't think there are really any "bad" QD-OLED monitors on the market, it just a matter as to whether any given one fits your particular needs well. Just make sure it's G-Sync Ultimate or FreeSync Premium certified according to your GPU so you can enjoy HDR and VRR simultaneously.

      Yes, both the AW and the MSI monitors I mentioned have that FreeSync Premium feature.

      I don't know much about HDR, but do you need to manually activate it using the windows key alt b shortcut or does it automatically turn on when you boot up a game?

      Also, what about the pixel refresh? How often does it occur and how long does it take? It would suck to be in the middle of a game and your monitor is just unusable for like 5-10 minutes

        I take it you have an AMD GPU then.
        I'm on Windows 10, so I can only toggle HDR from the display settings panel. I don't know exactly how it works on 11, but my understanding is that there's that keyboard shortcut and some sort of auto HDR setting that can be flaky.
        The pixel refresh interval is about 4 hours and the refresh period is about 5 minutes. You can delay the refresh if you want to finish a match or get to a good spot to pause. There's also a longer pixel refresh that lasts maybe 15 minutes or so that I've only seen a couple of times in the year and a half or so that I've had it and only trigger when turning the monitor on. The monitor I have also usually wants to go through it's pixel refresh when turned on for the first time in a few hours, so I've gotten in the habit of preparing my drink and snack and taking my dog out while my monitor "warms up". I don't know if this is common to other QD-OLEDs and/or conventional OLEDs or is just a quirk of this model.

            The "warm up" period is a little annoying, but I don't mind the monitor prompting for a refresh after four hours because it forces me to get up and do something else for a while.

    360hz is not reasonable to pursue and i say that as someone who has used 144gz and 240hz. you're not going to notice a difference going from 240hz to 360. even 144-240hz can be very difficult to ascertain in many cases, and that's assuming you can get >240 fps

      These new QD OLED panels only have 360 Hz.

        alright. guess it doesn't matter as long as you aren't paying more for it and you're going to get one that just coincidentally has 360 anyway

          do you even have a gpu that can rub 360hz
          you don't NEED more than 60hz THO

            people who are playing old fps can get 800fps+. but even if i had 800fps in ql i would not pay twice as much to get a 360hz monitor over a 240

          Yeah, I wouldn't get more than 240 Hz unless it doesn't cost anything.

          Very problematic resolution, because you cannot just 2x integer scale 1080p content.
          >>OLED
          QD with weird subpixel layout? Bad text clarity, especially at this meme resolution.

          I don't care so much for text clarity as I only really game on my PC. I don't work on it whatsoever. Just game and watch YouTube videos and movies. I've also read some reviews about these QD OLED panels having acceptable text clarity compared to those OLEDs that came out a year ago.

          The monitor that I have that broke down was 60 Hz. I played a game for like 3 hours at a friend's house who has a 180 Hz monitor and the difference was fricking dramatic. I went back to my 2nd monitor (60 Hz) and it just looked choppy as frick

    if you want one to last another 10 years don't get a fricking OLED, check into MiniLED. There's some pretty good options already and even better one coming soon.

    Alienware monitors are unironically pretty good. Mine (AW3821dw) has been flawless for about 1.5 years now. It had a stuck pixel a few months ago but that disappeared on its own.

      Checked. Their all in 1 PCs are horrendous and overpriced, but then again, you shouldn't ever buy prebuilds to begin with. Their monitors are some of the best yes and reasonably well priced

      Nah, way too wide and probably has shit support in most games. Having to look for fixes is a nightmare and implementing them, even if it's not that hard is a headache

      That monitor is as good as it gets for OLEDs so far, enjoy
      Only drawback seems to be that since it is only HDMI 2.0, it doesn't support 4k 120hz mode on a PS5

      >Only drawback seems to be that since it is only HDMI 2.0, it doesn't support 4k 120hz mode on a PS5
      I don't have any console and I never plan on getting one, so I don't really care. The alternative that I mentioned is MSI MPG 271QRX does have proper HDMI 2.1 if I understand correctly.

    I have the LG 45GR95QE-B, OLED is very good, make sure that:
    >you don't get a ultra wide
    >you have a second monitor
    >you have the correct desk and a monitor arm
    My monitor has been on for 2700h with no burn in yet. If you can, go with 4K and make sure the brightness is good enough, in some game I need to push it to 100% or it just look bad. But once you try oled you will not be able to go back.

      >>you don't get a ultra wide
      You have an ultrawide and from your experience, I should avoid it?

      >If you can, go with 4K
      Not worth it for me, because I do not possess the hardware, nor do I think there is any hardware out there, that can fully take advantage of 4K & 240hz, which is what a lot of 4K OLED monitors are nowadays. High framerate is crucial for me, and because of that I will take 1440p over 4K any day.

        yes, in truth it really depend on you use cases but so many games and medias are not compatible and having two massive black bars will create uneven wear. watch : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fa7V_OOu6B8

      what about the posts which point out how quickly they burn in and limited RMA policy where they send you used monitors as replacements?
