    Thank you Hexus for properly stating that vesa 2000 HDR doesn't exist (yet), it's a shame you haven't updated your original article with a clarification it doesn't exist.

    Re: Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Mini LED gaming monitor unveiled

    It's worth noting that Samsung don't typically use the "VESA HDR XXXX" standards/certifications etc in their marketing (its rare if you read the wording carefully...) - they (deliberately I am sure!) use similar but different branding, relating to the peak brightness of their panels. So "Quantum HDR 2000" just means "peak brightness of 2000 nits".

    That is technically rather different to VESA's certification which relates to much more than just peak brightness.

    Yes it's misleading, but this has been the case for several product generations now. I expect this also explains the original mistake by Taobao, as its a very easy thing to get lost in translation given how similar the branding is.

    Back to the screen itself - I still just wish they would make a sensibly sized version. A regular ultrawide would be perfect, super is just too wide.

    It's not just Taobao (who aside from just looking at branding, also included the Vesa Certified trademark and tick icon). Hexus also claimed it was VESA HDR 2000 in their text too.

    Indeed, DisplayHDR and "Quantum HDR" are two completely separate things.

    As one is a proper VESA standard, the other is something made up by samsung to make themselves look good
