    HDR support? Doesn't look like it, shame.

    I don't think the target market, for this monitor, will be concerned about that.

    Seems a very good price for a panel that unusual.

    Samsung pretty much already made this exact monitor in the CRG90 only it does 120hz, has Freesync and HDR support. I mainly use it as 1 x 2560x1440 and 2 x 1280x1440 monitors on either side - although this takes a lot of software trickery to do with Display Fusion and Borderless Gaming since no graphics cards seem to offer a virtual monitor feature.

    Yeah I have the Crg9 too. I did briefly consider the Philips equivalent available at the time which pillow absolutely identical to this model.
