Quantum Dots are also durable, meaning colors won't fade, and are the most efficient light emitting material on the planet, ensuring a longer life display that is almost 100% energy efficient. Furthermore, the HQ272PQD also features HS-IPS technology for super wide viewing angles to ensure you can enjoy high-quality visuals from almost any direction, and an easy to use settings menu of intuitive pre-set picture modes.
The new HQ272PQD offers extensive connectivity options.

Might have been interesting at 144Hz, but it isn't, so it ain't.

I don't care about high refresh, but I would have expected a QD monitor to do HDR easily.

This isn't a gaming monitor so I understand the choice of 60 Hz.
What I don't understand is the obligation of jumping from 60 Hz straight to 144 Hz :mad: personally I'd be satisfied with an all-purpose 90 Hz, IPS, x1440 monitor.
But it seems that there are prosumers (whatever that means) and gamers (whatever that is) and nothing in between.

Exactly! 75Hz refresh rate and freesync would've made this monitor perfect for me.

Yawn. A rebadged Samsung Quantom Dot panel with the same, boring specs and meh blacks.

One thing though, how is a panel 'almost 100% energy efficient'? :roll::roll:

Because quantum dots are magical..?

Is it actual, per pixel quantum dots or just a boring backlight?

Based on the contrast ratio, I'd guess a "quantum dot backlight," which grants a wider gamut at least.

EDIT: rats, I was too slow on the edit :p

Based on the contrast ratio, I'd guess a "quantum dot backlight," which may as well be useless, especially if there isn't wider gamut coverage coming with it.
It has a wider gamut. But it still tops out at 250nits and 1000:1 static contrast. Boooring.

higher refresh rates are not just for gamers, Carmack demonstrated on quake con some years back 2 monitors, 1 running 60hz and 1 running 120hz with no game on it at all, just to let people interact with Windows and see how much nicer and smoother 120hz is for everyone.

Linus has also said many times that the Razer phone (120hz screen) and the Asus ROG phone (90hz) are so nice and smooth to work with.

60hz was just a rediculously low ball and should be dated by now standard.
75hz should be the lowest standard it not 100hz.

Why would you have another step at 90 hz when 120-144 is readily available? Its not like it warrants a huge price difference, all high(er) refresh IPS are pricy. These panels need additional hardware (things like overdrive to suppress slower G2G on IPS) if they go beyond 60 anyway. And in most cases also use a different panel altogether. Panels that are fast enough to hit 120-144.

I would much rather see high refresh become a standard like 60hz is today, and a great point to settle on would be 120hz. A perfect double which means stuff like adaptive Vsync still 'fits' into a nice 60hz refresh which would keep the frame pacing even, and is also a perfect 5X of 24 FPS which is nice for native 24hz content.

I've had a Hannspree HF257HP, 25" LCD about ten years ago...it was a decent screen, with some unfortunate yellow glow...not sure if it was from nicotine from my cigarettes that got inside the screen, or something wrong with screen.

Eh, IPS needs overdrive to hit 60Hz. Fast panels are usually TN-Film and those are unsuitable for any kind of color-critical work. 120Hz IPS is pretty new afaik.

Anyone knows anything about difference on hs-ips? What is it? I can't find any proper info about this type of matrix. Some non-marketing characteristics is what i'm looking for, technical comparison against ips, tn and va.

I don't, but wiki should have the answer...basically if you want speedy screen, you go for TN, if you want colours, go IPS, and if you want good black and contrast, go VA. I personally prefer amva+ matrix, as they are the most advanced va screens, almost as fast as ips, but you usually get a decent screen without lamp leakage like you usually get with ips and tn.
