1ms MPRT. Anythong with this stated is not 1ms unless you active whatever tech they're using(usually overdrive). I currently have an acer xz321qu, and it is 1ms mprt. I tried a viewsonic of same specs, size, and honestly if you want the 1ms mprt, and you enable the tech, it's AWFUL. The brightness goes down DRASTICALLY, to the point of where you can't hardly see anything in games, and thus it's a useless feature. Without it enabled though, you do notice ghosting, and you do notice the slow response time.

HDR on pc is not really here. There is one or 2 monitors that I am aware of that have ghe required nits for true HDR. HDR on most monitors that say they support it are a far cry from the real thing, after owning 3 different 1440p, 32', 144hz, "HDR" monitors, I'll tell you that it's very far from being real HDR, especially at the 350-650 price point

The Pixio 277h is right there for required nits but that's it. We will see when I get it.

For anyone else reading. HDR requires 400 nits (400 cd/m2) and the Pixio 277h has 600 nits. Technically this monitor is right at the cusp for HDR, but most likely couldn't make the cut to continuously provide the amount of brightness for it.

Still, I'd forgo the HDR for $50 less than the $399 I paid for the Pixio 277h, but $20 doesn't necessarily make it worth it. Although, the 1ms response time is a nice balancer here.

Omg anyone have any experiences with this monitor? I kinda want to return my acer predator xb27hu that I got for 650 and get this? Any opinions? And how is VA compared to IPS? Always used IPS monitors only.

NEVERMIND no g-sync - RiP
