Description

I realize I'm not the typical "PC gamer" that modern companies market towards. My needs are more niche and utilitarian, so I focus on versatility and usability. This monitor has design flaws that are difficult for me to overlook. It's evident that the engineers did not consider small quality-of-life details that would benefit end-users in a home environment. It feels like little care was put into the OSD design, testing, layout, and controls, which is a shame. Build-wise, it looks great (ignoring the oversized power LED), which is what ultimately fooled me into buying it. Solid gaming monitor, I am not a content creator on this machine, but maybe I might buy another one in the future to hook it up to the Mac environment.

Before connecting the monitor to the power outlet, make sure that the voltage rating of the power cable is compatible with the power specification in the country where you are located.

We’d argue that reflections on glossy panel are likely to be far more problematic to most people than a small impact to the contrast ratio from an AG coating for what is at the end of the day specifically designed to be a desktop monitor. Remember, this isn’t designed to be a TV, it’s not designed to be used in a dark lounge with carefully controlled lighting for relaxing night time viewing. It’s designed to be used as your desktop monitor, throughout the day, in a normal lighting setup where you have windows, overhead lighting and lamps around. Bendable format is unique and gives you a lot of flexibility for different uses and different games

The Corsair Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 has issues with SDR content in the Windows 11 desktop environment. Turning HDR mode on brightens the screen, but reduces perceived contrast and decreases the color gamut that’s presented. This is a common problem with Windows 11 and HDR monitors, but it’s more noticeable here than on other OLEDs I’ve recently reviewed. You’ll probably want to keep HDR off on the Windows 11 desktop (though, to be fair, I’d generally recommend that anyway).Aspect ratio is the ratio of width to height of an image or screen. When the aspect ratio is set to Auto, the monitor will adapt the aspect ratio to match the incoming video signal. This mode is useful when trying to view an image with a different aspect ratio than the display without distorting the image. Full mode will take the input and change the size of the image to fit the screen. The "0" brightness level is still too bright for my photosensitive eyes. The lowest brightness in SDR for this monitor is 40 nits according to RTINGS.com, which I failed to consider before buying. At night, my workaround was using software like f.lux to dim the colors far below OSD minimum. However, it's very difficult to make the display look pleasant in pitch-dark environments, partially due to the screen's graininess (discussed later). As for daytime, I still keep the display near minimum brightness since my monitor is never in direct sunlight. Colour accuracy of wide gamut Rec.2020 content was very good overall. With a moderate 73.9% coverage of this very wide colour space possible, the largest errors came in red, green and cyan (dE 6.7 max), which is typical for any HDR display really. The average dE was still an impressive 1.6 and colours and skin tones looked accurate. This was a good factory setup for HDR accuracy in the ‘standard’ colour temp mode. From a desktop real estate point of view you still get a decent amount of space to work with for split screen working and large documents. But with the screen being so large, sometimes it feels like there should be much more space available, and it feels almost like you’ve accidentally set a lower resolution or something and are losing some space. Keep in mind we’ve also seen the other extreme recently which was a 40″ Dell U4021QW ultrawide panel (so 4.75″ smaller than this) with a 5120 x 2160 resolution which gives you a much larger screen area to work with, as well as a sharper and clearer image.
