According to tests performed by PC Monitors, P2415Q set to factory defaults (75% brightness, Standard preset) produces luminance in the range of 0.21 - 237 cd/m² with a contrast ratio of 1129. It provides good brightness and dark blacks. It is also capable of going up to 0.30 - 331 cd/m² with a contrast ratio of 1182 at 100% brightness. See More
According to Spyder4Elite tests performed by PC Monitor, P2415Q has good color temperature uniformity. A DeltaE deviation of over 3 can be easily noticed by most people and the highest deviation recorded is 2.5. It's worth noting that the monitor has an uniformity compensation setting that in the same test proved to make things worse with a maximum deviation of 2.9. See More
A 60Hz monitor, while sufficient for most people in most cases, can still cause issues with fast-moving objects on screen. It's especially important with things like gaming where the ability to react to events happening on the screen quickly is important. See More
The Samsung uses a 10-bit color display panel, resulting fantastic picture quality. It can reproduce more than a billion colors, compared to the 16 million colors of 8-bit panels. The color saturation and accuracy easily compete with more expensive screens, although they are not precise enough for photo-centric work. Contrast levels are average, but the monitor is brighter than other monitors in its price group. See More
This screen's connectivity consists of two HDMI 2.0 ports and one DisplayPort 1.2., which is enough for most users. Samsung offers picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture modes. Meaning that you can view two inputs side by side or one can be scaled down to a small window that you can place on one of the corners. See More
The Freesync feature is almost useless as the range is actually 54-64hz instead of at least 40-60hz. And no, even using CRU won't help, as any modification to the freesync range will result into the monitor turning complete white (stuck) eventually after awhile. See More
The screen’s 10-bit panel covers 97% of the sRGB color spectrum which is a respectable result for a budget monitor. For professional use, you will have to look for something more accurate. Color saturation and accuracy is excellent and can compete with higher priced models. See More
When using the sRGB preset - which is particularly useful for graphical editing - the grayscale error readings of the U2879VF are quite low for a relatively inexpensive panel. The error measures was 0.93 Delta E - that's only a tad worse than specific graphical displays which retail for a much larger price. For comparison, a standard 28" TN panel measures at 1.60 Delta E. (Lower is better.) See More
The maximum supported refresh rate of this monitor is 75 Hz or 75 frames per second which is a tad faster than non-Freesync monitors, but is not as good as 120 or 144 Hz displays. Especially fast-paced games benefit from a higher refresh rate, for a more fluid gaming experience. See More
The AOC U2879VF uses a 4K-display with a resolution of 2160 x 3840 pixels, which is four times the amount of pixels of a Full HD display. This results in an extremely sharp image and overall great image quality. In terms of pixel density (measured in pixels per inch), this display measures at 163 ppi. For comparison - a Full HD display of the same size will only achieve half of that - 81.5 pixels per inch. See More
The AOC U2879VF has excellent screen uniformity, both in terms of luminance and color. In fact, this panel scores extremely well with a luminance deviation of 6.32 percent - which is better than most displays with IPS panels. No backlight bleeding or hotspots are present. See More
The IPS-panel used in LG's monitor offers great image quality, especially compared to the more common TN-panels. Contrast is great with a 1000:1 ratio (better blacks), luminosity is excellent, images are vibrant and the color reproduction is great as well. These attributes are all due to the fact that an IPS panel was used. See More
The maximum supported refresh rate of this monitor is 75 Hz or 75 frames per second which is a tad faster than non-Freesync monitors, but is not as good as 120 or 144 Hz displays. Especially fast-paced games benefit from a higher refresh rate, as it offers a more fluid gaming experience. See More
The LG 29UM68 is a display with a rather unique 21:9 aspect ratio, which is ultra-wide. The difference with a regular 16:9 display is that there are added pixels on both sides, which increases workspace. It's also ideal to watch movies as most recent movies are filmed in a widescreen aspect ratio. Some games also offer support for 21:9 monitors and will allow you to have a greater field of view.
