    Is this monitor HDR? Says UHD

    Hi GUYS,

    Does this model support HDR? Even equivalent to 8 bit TVS.

    Acer CB240HYK 24" IPS Ultra HD 4K Monitor

    ebuyer.com/700…001

    It says ULTRA HD 4K. It'll be either this or a Samsung 40, but monitor suits me more if this is HDR for PS4 PRO.

    Thanks

    No, BTW HDR isn't standard on 4k monitors it's more of a TV thing

    Thanks for the reply.

    Assuming at this moment of time then TV is the better way to go with a PS4 pro then.

    What's the appeal to HDR? I have mine disabled on my TV the picture looks crispier without it

    UHD = 4K, its a thing for people who like TLA BTW FYI.

    If it had HDR, they would plaster it all over the description.

    Also be aware, there are two completely different HDR systems, one for TVs and one for cameras, they are NOT the same.

    It supposedly brings out more colour, contrast and dynamic range. I don't know the ins and outs however after seeing Forza Horizon 3 running on the xbox One S with two different sets the difference was clear with HDR on.

    Cheers.

    In this instance it is for visual. Tv/Monitor. A little lost at the moment.

    Yes, and if you have the budget then get something like a Samsung UE49KS7000 which is a cracking midrange TV for gamers.

    That looks great TV. Unfortunately a bit above my budget at the moment. I was hoping for £400 region for a decent set, not the best. Around 40 inches .

    Something like the LG 43UH661V might serve you well. It keeps dropping to £399 and then going back up, a good TV for the price.

    You might be best waiting until Jan as you will get more for your money then.

    You're only going to get partial HDR support for £400, forget any sort of local dimming or high peak brightness. Essentially just the wider colour space.

    4K monitors with wider colour spaces are plentiful (typically Adobe RGB instead of DCI-P3, but they're similar), however I'm not sure if the PS4 Pro would support them.

    ​Thanks for that. I understand I'll only get partial support and get that. End of the day most instances you get what you pay for and right now that's all I can afford budget wise. Later next year I'll try and pick up a 10 bit panel for the living room.

    Decision I need to make now do I buy an partial HDR TV 40 inch for 400 ish or a 4K monitor without HDR for around 250.

    ​I think I may wait and keep checking what comes on offer as you say. Hopefully a bargain or good value arises. Thank you.

    A Samsung KS7000 isn't a mid range TV your looking more a KU6020 or KU6400 for mid range both have good input lag for gaming

    Hey guys. Thanks for your replies.

    How does the Hisense H43M3000 compare to the Samsung UE40K6400?

    Is it worth the price difference? Does anyone know how input lag is on the Hisense and any motion issues?

    Thanks

    There's no such model as the K6400, are you looking at the KU6400 or the K6300?

    The KU6400 has a 90% DCI P3 colour space, so it's equivalent to Hisense's M7000. I believe the M5500 has a slightly wider colour space than SDR, along the lines of LG's 630-668v. The M3300 is a non-HDR TV, equivalent (in features) to Samsung's KU6000 (and variants).

    Thanks again for the response. I did indeed mean the KU6400. When it comes to Tv's as you probably can tell it isn't my strongest understanding. Assuming the KU6400 is the right way to go? £450 from John Lewis including 5 year warranty.

    Nothing of equivalent/better for the same price or lower?

    Thanks
