Contrary to my Asus with HDR enabled, the Windows desktop when HDR is on is comically washed out. No amount of fiddling with the SDR content brightness was enough (contraty to my PG35VQ, where I could find a pretty good middle ground for the desktop to not look completely washed out).It is looking so much worse than my 2 other displays. Local Dimming @ Auto, regardless of what the monitor's OSD says, also applies some degree of local dimming to SDR content, but not much. Forcing it to low or high really hides much of the blooming, but with the same side effect as the previously mentioned HDR issue. HDR content doesn't react to HDR activated. Looks like several people have this problem, seems like this is a Firmware problem that needs to be resolved!
