  1. Color gamut. VA pannels usually get slammed compared to IPS counterparts (though they are superior in at least one metric namely static contrast). However, when it comes to HDR capable TVs they have to support wide color gamuts in order to pass certain certifications. It's not always clear and transparent what "wider" means though. In this particular case I'm looking at, it covers 100% of DCI-P3, which I think is the digital projection equivalent of AdobeRGB. Thoughts?

It's not going to be as good as a monitor.

To clarify, are you saying a HDR TV with a VA panel always has an inferior gamut compared even to a non-HDR IPS monitor?

What editing software platform is making use of that technology?

  1. You won't be able to calibrate it, and you won't get consistent accurate color. If you do not care about color accuracy, go for it. Otherwise, there is a very good reason people recommend against this idea.

Thanks, I thought any display connected to a PC can be calibrated. Didn't realize it's not possible to calibrate at all.

You can calibrate a lot of things, but keeping that calibration is a more significant problem. Laptop screens are notorious for this problem.
