    Monitors that do this kind of dual displayport thing are very complex. It's not just two ports. They need an internal MST hub, which adds costs and hardware complexity, and potentially input lag....

    Asus is 15-20% more expensive even on older gaming monitors that have comparable Acer versions. Pretty normal.

    Asus and Acer versions of this monitor are using the same panel. 100% chance that someone's(or both) website specs are wrong, 0% chance that there are any panel differences.

    I wonder if this is going to have ULMB. If it does, it might be really excellent, with an HDR backlight it should have brightness to spare for strobing, and strobing will also hide the long dark...

    VA panels are better at hiding bloom than IPS because they filter more light(which is why they have higher native contrast ratios).

    Yes, with FALD off it all evens out - to the same level as the halo, because the backlight cannot be dimmed or turned off. Thus the backlight must always be set bright enough to display the brightest...

    I find it strange that someone would prefer elevated black levels throughout the display over haloing, but to each their own. If you turn off the FALD in SDR mode(where there aren't highlights above...

    The upcoming PG35VQ is a VA panel and may hide the haloing better(but it will still be there, of course, you cannot have FALD without haloing unless you have 10s of thousands of zones).

    In the Anandtech article on the EU preorder pricing, they did the without-VAT math.
