VESA: DisplayHDR 2000 certificate for monitors does not yet exist – Computer – News

Indeed, there is currently far too much focus on the maximum brightness, and the minimum is forgotten.

I now have to reduce the contrast on all my modern screens a lot in the evening because at 0% brightness the screen is just too bright. During the day I have the contrast at 70% – the default value, also usually with 0% brightness, which is so bright that it is sufficient during the day! And in the evening the contrast at 20% or something. This is a problem, because this greatly reduces the color depth. That leads to banding and faint colors. I also can’t live without dark mode anymore.

Of course, one does not rule out the other. But LEDs only have a limited control area and after that you have to turn on the PWM (say blinking). You cannot do that indefinitely, because then you will see it too much. So an extremely high maximum brightness in combination with a very low minimum is complicated and expensive. Add to that the maximum brightness is a plus on the spec card, and the minimum is not even listed. As a result, you get these types of screens that work beautifully in the store but in practice on your desk work worthless.

But 2000 cd / m ^ 2 doesn’t seem good for your eyes either, especially when it’s all of a sudden and on small parts of the screen.
