An expensive display in 2019 without HDMI 2.1 support to me is a big no. DisplayPort 1.4 can´t handle 4k @ 120hz with chroma 4:4:4 + HDR. To me any display more expensive than 800€ in 2019 and without HDMI 2.1 is a bad investement.

Not to mention that DP 1.4 can't go past 4K 98hz in HDR10 mode without dropping to 4:2:2, unless DSC is supported. I'd love to find out.

Personally, I rip all my legally purchased content to my PC for playback so I don't need HDMI, but 4:2:2 is a dealbreaker as I do not want to switch refresh rates when using my next 4K monitor for text.

HDMI 2.1 can't become standard soon enough. I wouldn't personally buy a monitor that can't do 4:4:4 at its max refresh rate. Still, if this one had 96 Hz in 4:4:4 and 120 Hz in 4:2:2 that'd be OK I guess. Or 120 Hz via DP 1.4 in 4:4:4 via DSC.

Exactly! Not in 2019 at least. In 2017/2018 at beast, I would invest. Right now is a big risk. Navi, next 7nm GPUs, next gen consoles, they all will support HDMI 2.1. This kind of displays are expensive. I like to make good investments.

Imo the best investment right now is gonna be LG oled 4k 120hz HDR HDMI 2.1 FreeSync 2 offers.
