Panasonic DX750 ultra HD 4K TV review, excellent 4K picture quality and HDR performance for PS4 Pro and Xbox One S: ... -tv-review

David Bierton wrote:Right now, there are few choices for those looking for a display with low input lag for HDR gaming, but the Panasonic DX750 delivers a very good experience for a great price tag. HDR performance is limited by the coarse global dimming algorithm, but images are still presented with a noticeable increase in depth and detail over SDR 4K footage and 1080p content.

Scenes with mixed imagery (bright, dark and mid tones) can appear washed out, thus reducing three-dimensionality to a degree, but on the whole the DX750 still manages to provide an experience that showcases the key benefits of high dynamic range. And of course the relatively low level of input lag ensures that gaming doesn't feel sluggish, though controls do feel slightly weightier compared to displays that half the amount of lag (like the 2016 Samsung line-up). Combined with deep blacks and excellent colour reproduction, the DX750 is a solid choice for gamers wanting to take the plunge into 4K and HDR gaming.

Are there better displays available? Sure enough, Samsung's KS7000 and KS8000 both offer up better performance overall, with a wider colour gamut, higher peak brightness, and better global dimming algorithms. Input lag is much lower in game mode as well - around 20ms - but right now there are still issues with correctly displaying a HDR feed on all models, limiting low latency gaming to standard dynamic range. Samsung is continuing to update HDR compatibility with game mode via firmware updates, though at the time of writing this still doesn't work as intended on the KU6400 and KS7000 we tested. However, some users have reported HDR working fine on the KS8000, so perhaps there are some software related issues that need resolving with Samsung's firmware updates. We'll keep you updated as new updates roll out.

But right now, for around the £1000 mark the Panasonic DX750 is a great choice for prospective PS4 Pro owners. Motion handling could be better in game mode - red frame insertion is disabled here - and off-axis viewing isn't a good idea due to the VA panel. Upscaling could also be cleaner, with more artefacts than expected when displaying 1080p content without using the one-pixel by four-pixel mode. But in other areas, the DX750 hands in a solid level of performance, and it's generally an excellent display all round. Of course, the higher end DX902 delivers a superior HDR experience due to the inclusion of global backlight dimming, though this comes with almost doubling of the price point, which is not ideal for those on a budget - particularly if you've just laid out £350 on a new PlayStation 4 Pro.

Very cool TV. Might be able to get those massive TVs with OLED level contrast without spending more than 8 grand. (edited)
I hope it comes over to Best Buy/other electronics store around here. I really wanna see it for myself.
The TV is called the HiSense ULED XD

AOC announced this week the G2868PQU, a monitor with the potential to get gamers to 4K resolution for just $299 / £319.

The 28-inch monitor uses a TN panel that AOC claims is "HDR-ready." But max brightness is listed at just 300 nits, and there isn't any local dimming. As such, it does not meet the requirements for an official DisplayHDR badge.

However, the panel does cover 102 percent of the sRGB and 82 percent of the AdobeRGB color gamuts. Moreover, the panel boast a 1ms response time and support for AMD FreeSync, though the refresh rate is just standard at 60Hz.

For inputs, the G2868PQU takes HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2a, VGA and also packs four USB 3.1 ports and 3.5mm audio input and output. The included monitor stand allows for forward and back tilt, as well as 130mm of height adjustment range. It can be replaced with any VESA-compatible alternative.

Finally, AOC is including a range of gaming-oriented settings directly in the monitor’s on-board settings, including saturation controls, shadow level options, different game modes as well as AOC Dial Point, which displays a crosshair even when the in-game one is not displayed.
