[Staples] LG 29WK600 UltraWide HDR10 Monitor ($209.99 + 3% ebates)

I just bought this for productivity. Based on searching around I think this is the lowest price for this monitor. You need to use coupon from ebates to get $20 off $200 (https://www.ebates.ca/staples-canada). Brings price to 209.99 and ebates is 3% off.

Total purchase in Ontario = 237.29 - 6.30 = 230.99

Color Gamut: sRGB over 99%
i.e. While it's a great sRGB panel....you can say goodbye to the HDR experience even though it supports HDR10 'signal'.

Good price for an ultrawide 99% sRGB display with FreeSync @ native resolution at 75Hz over DisplayPort.

I'm pretty sure you can't reasonably get HDR on a monitor anyways. Doesn't it have to be far too bright in order to properly display HDR for a monitor that would sit only a few feet in front of you should be?

agreed, you need over 1000 nit for real HDR. The title HDR10 was just to entice people to look at link :-). It just supports it, I doubt there is much of a benefit of it.

Depends on your usage... most lower end / 2nd tier brand tvs, even at double the price point of this monitor, won't have 4:4:4 chroma (for crisp text), no display port, and likely a VA panel (colour / viewing angle issues depending on your viewing distance).

The TCL 4 Series has 4:4:4 chroma and low input lag so I guess that is ok?

Anyone know what type of cable is best for this 2560x1080 monitor ? My PC with ATI HD4200 which offers 2060x1600 max via its dual-link DVI-D port (HDMI or VGA is just up to 1080P max). since this monitor has DP-port and HDMI, the question is what kind of cable is best for it, dual-link DVI-D 24+1 to ( DP ? or HDMI ?).
Where in GTA to get such a truly dual link DVI cable ? heard some cable just 'look' like a dual-link (24+1 pins on header) but it is not internally connecting the 2nd link. Please shed some lights...
