Before anything else, we conducted a performance test out of the box. Using Spyder5PRO, we were able to convert the performance of the display into numbers.
This monitor has a brightness rating of 300cd/m2 according to its specs. However, our sample was only around 199.5cd/m2 which is significantly lower than the rated brightness.
Its colour reproduction is excellent. Its overall image reproduction is excellent as well. However, we did found some noticeable issues. Probably around after 30 minutes of use, we notice an image retention issue. Meaning, the display leaves a noticeable traces of the previous image displayed or also known as “Burn-In” issue. This is something to take note of if you’re considering this monitor.

With its 43 Inch display, a 3840×2160 Ultra High-Definition at colour its good color accuracy coupled with IPS display panel, it is simply one of the top choices should you want a large display to help you in your workflow.
