Recently I have centralised all my gaming so my PS4 Pro now lives on my PC desk. I have recently also bought the 27gl850 and use this monitor with my PS4 Pro. Unfortunately though I have not been able to get HDR to display correctly from my PS4 on this monitor. I have HDR enabled and all display settings set to automatic which the PS recommends, but using HDR from the PS the colours look very washed out and just horrible. Disabling HDR in the PS makes the colour very nice - but then no HDR. HDR is working correctly and looking very nice on PC using a Display Port.

So my question is, has anyone had any experience using a PS and this monitor and having HDR work correctly?

Btw I also have this monitor and a PS4 Pro, I use my Pro with a 1080p IPS monitor (my secondary monitor). In case you weren't aware, PS4 won't output 1440p, it will treat the monitor as a 1080p display. But yeah I recommend not bothering with HDR at all with this monitor.

Yes I understand the HDR isn't that great considering its under 400nits. But still, HDR is not possible? Is it because the PS Pro can't output native 1440p?

I dont get it... So far the games I had been testing HDR on the PS4 were The last of Us 1 and 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4 and Shadow of the Colossus. Last night I downloaded the Latest God of War and was expecting the same washed out colour palette. But low and behold it looks beautiful and bright with HDR on. So seriously WTF?
