    The test methodology isn't perfect. It measures power consumption at 50% brightness - but that may not be the same level of brightness across all the monitors. If the backlight on the Philips is (say) twice the power of another, then the power consumption will be double at a 50% setting, but the display might be considerably brighter, so in real life you may be running it at a lower percentage setting and therefore a lower power consumption.

    A better test would be to compare the monitors at the same light output (lumens) rather than a completely uncalibrated percentage setting.

    As someone who uses a HDR 4K TV for PC usage, I should note that the way to go about HDR is simply to leave it off, and leave it to apps to enable it. For videos, install MadVR over MPC-HC and tell it to pass through HDR info, upon playing HDR content your screen automatically turns both it and the right colour space on (bt2020 in most cases). Games usually have their own exclusive fullscreen mode which will enable HDR without having to turn it on in Windows.

    I've been using a TV as a monitor for years now, as I got used to the size (currently at 43"), and while the sharpness isn't as great as a PC, you soon get used to it. After all, you don't have anything to compare it to, so it becomes the norm extremely quickly

    Although it isn't clear seem they were testing a '100% white' HDR image, HDR mode(s) always consume more power due to the brightness needed for highlights. 150W is about right for the screen size.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
