    DisplyHDR 400 requires a maximum brightness of not less than 400nits and is generally concidered not to be real HDR so, I can't see how a display with a maximum brightness of only 300 nits can possibly present any kind of meaningful HDR experience, especially not HDR10.

    HDR10 is the quoted standard and that has no limit on what the brightness is. Don't confuse HDR10 which is a tv/broadcast standard with DisplayHDR which is designed for pc/computer monitors

    I'm not confusing anything, I just don't believe that this monitor will be capable of delivering a convincing HDR experience. Perhaps the HDR10 standard is too lax?

    It's a totally different thing. It's a way for companies like netflix to get a higher dynamic range to devices that's all...
    It's not a standard as such - it's just a way to make sure that content looks ok on a tv screen (we all know that a tv generally is set way too bright/saturated)
    Display HDR seeks to make it a standard so you get some accuracy as well as HDR thus minimum brightness etc. etc.

    It doesn't seem to be intended as a gaming monitor, more of a productivity item, so I'm not sure what the utility would be. Response time of 5ms with 144Hz is a big mismatch.
