    I hate these stupid dynamic contrast ratios. Gives me no idea what the panel is actually like. TN so likely rubbish but I will not even consider a panel which does not give me the real contrast ratio. Marketing idiots sometimes cost sales due to this obsession with high numbers as we all just see through them and wonder what they're covering up.

    Isn't 400nit quite low for HDR? Would this just be pseudo HDR?

    It'd be the bare minimum for the lowest level of HDR I would say. To be honest, HDR on a TN panel either shows how far TN has come or how meaningless / watered down the definition of HDR has become. Probably a little of both.

    I have HDR telly and a HDR monitor. The telly was <£300 and frankly HDR makes very little difference. The monitor was again fairly cheap for anything with HDR (I got it based on overall reviews rather than for the HDR stuff) and, whilst it makes some difference, calibrating it properly to work in HDR mode is a pain and the difference isn't massive.

    I think the above proves that if you want HDR that makes a real difference, you need to pay handsomely. In my experience the only thing that does HDR properly is my phone with the OLED screen but I have not ever used the expensive PC displays with proper HDR or expensive HDR tellies. I expect the lower tier of HDR will get slapped onto nearly anything and everything as "HD" did with 720P displays which were actually worse than 1024x768....

    Probably £450+ for a 27" 1080p TN panel? They're 'aving a laff!
