Blah...personally hate cheap monitors...Avera, TCL.....I barely like the Samsung....love higher end, black levels, higher hertz, no light bleed, etc. Of course the price is difficult to swallow.
The black levels on my TCL aren't incredible but they seem in the ballpark with what I get from my PJ, an Epson 8700U, which has quite a reputation for deep blacks. But it isn't black it's just a pretty dark gray. I watched some cartoonish cinema the other day on the TCL and the blacks look OK in that context.
There is darkening at the corners. I notice this looking at a uniform screen, white, blue, whatever. In ordinary use I wouldn't have noticed it, unless I thought to look for it maybe.
I hear the Samsungs aren't really better (or even as good as) my TCL.
So, what is seriously better?
I read a thread here on OLED displays the other day, didn't know what they are. Super black levels, but there's a big downside worrying about longevity. And there's the cost, of course.
