A full array of features with a few disappointing flaws.
I'll stick to their 24" 3d gaming monitor... only cost me $50. In time, if I can get one of these for that price then hell yeah.
27” is more comfortable than 24” for a desktop setup. Really the sweet spot in my opinion. I can’t beat $50 for a monitor price (garage sale?) but I did get a used 27” LG 4K HDR monitor for much, much less than $900.
My 4K monitor is 27". For high refresh rate for shooters and anytime I want more frames I'm still running a 1080p 165hz 24" IPS. I tend to sit pretty close when using the 24" and it is perfect for me. I think I may try a 27" high refresh 1440p next and see how that goes.
@Deus the LG one doesn't have HDMI 2.1 let alone 2 of them and the M9 beats it hands down https://www.reddit.com/r/Mo...
I have an LG 32" 1440p monitor, it's a 165hz va panel and I love it, $229 new, I feel like 4k on a 27" panel is overkill, only pro is 120hz. Just my opinion of course.
900 smackers?!, no thank you.
Lol, Sony's always wild with their prices outside of playstation.
What about ps3 launch or Vita memory cards? :p
PS3 was the cheapest Blu Ray player available when it launched . Most Blu Ray players were 800-1000$ . You got a Blu Ray player and a gaming system for much less than what Blu Ray players were going for alone .
$900 I would rather use that towards a 65 inch 4k tv
I got it used because I have a friend who runs a rent to own electronics store, but I paid less than $900 for a 120hz 4K OLED. Again though, it was used; but no issues after a little over 2 years and it's a high quality TV. There's many better options for monitors if you really wanted to pay 900 bucks. You can get the same quality for cheaper.
"There's many better options for monitors if you really wanted to pay 900 bucks. You can get the same quality for cheaper." NO you will not
@badz Yeah you will, but believe what you wish. Looking for the most expensive monitor possible to make an example of doesn't change the fact there's a bunch of much more affordable monitors out there offering the features.
@Madlad talk is cheap, buddy. where are these same quality but cheaper monitors you're talking about? https://www.youtube.com/wat... watch starting at 12:00
Seems like THE GAMING MONITOR that they just wanted to attach as much as they could. This is the top of the top when it comes to monitors and there are no other monitors like this one. Obviously, some features won't matter to many people, but I don't think there is another monitor with this many features dedicated to gaming.
I mean there definitely are more gaming monitors with this set of features, but none that are priced below this. If you compare just to the same feature set it's actually priced well, not to say that should make it worth it to you, if you don't need all these features why pay the premium.
This monitor was made for those who want to splurge on the best setup they can have without having a giant TV basically.
Agreed - I see people saying this is expensive but I don't see any of those same people sharing an example of a cheaper 4K 144hz HDR monitor. Comparing this to a TV too... Just ridiculous. For myself, it's gonna be another two years before I upgrade my PC to something that would actually go north of 4K60, and maybe by then Sony will address the complaints in their first generation (USB-B, lol)
I mean it's a little pricey, but 4K 144Hz HDR PC monitors that support HDMI 2.1 aren't exactly cheap anyways.
To be fair they are now. Well getting there anyway. In the UK they can be had for around £300
Clearly people do not understand the monitor market. Unfortunately it’s terrible atm compared to the value of TVs, so 900 for this isn’t that bad or surprising.
$900 isn't really shocking. I bought my Asus 34" ultrawide 3440x1440 100hz monitor 5 yrs ago for $1200. Still loving it today and it's perfect for work
Yes of course the Verge would say that. If it was Apple $5000 monitor they would say it's the best value in the universe.
They didn’t though they constantly rip the Apple monitor…
There's a good few quality monitors that offer the same at a cheaper cost than that.
Yeah this monitor is a bit overpriced to say the least. For that price you could buy a very nice 4k telly with a larger screen.
It's always something on Sony electronics pricing. They can learn a thing or two from Playstation. Competitively priced video games but their TVs are always a bit overpriced.
people complaining here really don't understand much about monitors. just look at what ASUS is charging for their ROG lineup for similarly spec monitors and you'll see the M9 looks like a bargain. https://www.amazon.com/ASUS...
I'd say to anyone after a gaming monitor to see if you can get one of those Alienware QD-OLEDs. It is amazing. And it wasn't much more expensive than this.
I don't understand the hate this monitor and its price keep getting. I'm told for it's features it's the best price in it's class. If I could afford it I'd buy it day one. Are there any 4k monitors with full array local dimming, 2 hdmi 2.1 ports, DisplayHDR 600 Certified and 144Hz refresh rate then please let me know as I am in the market for a monitor of the same spec at a lower price.
Tbh HDR 600 is pointless. May as well just pay £300 or so than 900 for slightly better HDR. Still get the multiple HDMI 2.1 ports and 4K/144hz.
I kinda don't get it either the only other monitor similar to it and lower in price seems to be the LG27GP950B which from what reviews say has a worse local dimming feature compared to the m9. Then the one directly below that the M28U is HDR400. For a monitor it seems to be priced accordingly.
You can get at Bestbuy an LG C1 48 OLED for $799.99!
yep and Sony's games are good but not $70 good
900 gets you a 85 inch 4k 60 gtx tv that you can play at 60 fps lmaooo seriously??
The gigabyte m28u has the same features but cheaper and better imo
yeah so expensive, even their tv's. Thats why i stayed using LG's
