Just when you thought that NVIDIA-inspired 65-Inch Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGDs) were huge, JapanNext has rolled-out its new 75 and 86-inch monitors. The JN-IPS7500UHDR-KG and JN-IPS8600UHDR monitors are aimed mostly at multimedia enthusiasts who also need to get some work done, but both LCDs feature profiles for gaming too.

The 75-inch and 86-inch displays from JapanNext are based on an 8+2-bit IPS panel featuring a 3840×2160 resolution, 330 or 400 nits brightness, a 1200:1 contrast ratio, 178º viewing angles, a 4 ms response time, and a 60 Hz refresh rate. The monitors use a direct LED backlighting to ensure brightness uniformity. The screens are covered with a half-gloss coating.

JapanNext claims that the monitors support HDR, but there is no word whether they support HDR10 or other industry-standard transport methods. Meanwhile, firmware of the 75-inch and 86-inch displays feature profiles for 'standard', Games (genre depending), Movies, and Photos. To switch modes and make other adjustments, both monitors come with a remote. Unfortunately, it looks like the LCDs do not support AMD’s FreeSync technology, at least the manufacturer does not advertise the capability.

Since we are talking about displays aimed primarily at multimedia enthusiasts, they feature an extremely robust set of connectors to attach multiple devices. The JN-IPS7500UHDR-KG and JN-IPS8600UHDR monitors are equipped with one DisplayPort 1.2, one HDMI 2.0, two HDMI 1.4, and a D-Sub input (just in case someone wants to attach a Windows XP-based PC to an 85-incher to play games from the 1990s - Ed: Or a BMC-equipped server). There is also an S/PDIF optical connector, an audio input, a headphone output, and built-in 5W stereo speakers.

Since the displays are very large, they come equipped with TV stands that can barely adjust anything. Both LCDs also feature VESA mounts, but since the 75-inch and 86-inch displays weigh 40 and 56 kilograms respectively, it might be difficult to find an adjustable VESA wall mount for such monitors.

    Not enough quality, just sized up yesteryears tech

    Exactly. Almist all new Samsung models have freesynch and some older ones after firmware update too. See the best site reviewing TVs as game and work monitors Rtings dot com.

    The 4 ms is pretty impressive but many 4K TVs also got close to 10 ms which fits 99.9% people.

    Excluding those 0.1% pros who need 120hz at 4K or special gamut reqs, if you people don't use 4K TV as your PC and a game monitors consider yourself a dumbo and retarded technophobes, period

    I have no interest in a 50" or even a 30"+ TV/Monitor for working or gaming. If you like that sort of format, all the power to you, but calling people retarded for not wanting to stare on a way too huge screen on their desk is a bit over the top, don't you think?

    At the 27" sweet spot for me, they just don't make TVs. Nevermind wanting a high refresh rate screen, which is not a feature i'll ever want to give up again for gaming.

    "What separates TV from Monitors, Anyhow?"

    Well I think the difference use to be important but as long as it has some kind of sound device on it, I think it can be used as a TV - one could think it has a TV tuner - but not a days with device like a Amazon Fire TV combine with and Fire TV recast - who cares - of course as long as you have audio - I think Satellite of Cable will work anyway.

    A display without a tuner can be used as a TV (with a set-top box etc.), but the crucial difference is that it can't be sold as one.

    "they feature an extremely robust set of connectors to attach multiple devices"

    I wouldn't call it exremely robust, with only two connectors that support the monitor's native resolution at 60Hz.
  • twtech - Saturday, March 16, 2019 - link

    That's a very competitive price for an 86" screen - if I didn't already have an 82", it would be tempting.

    It doesn't really matter whether they call it a TV or a monitor unless you aren't planning to connect a receiver to it.

    Two things have traditionally separated TV's from monitors: built-in speakers and built-in over-the-air tuners. Built-in speakers in monitors are certainly not standard today but they are common enough with there inclusion being a side effect of display interfaces carrying audio.

    Built-in tuners still define a line between monitors and TV though the importance of that line is fading as streaming is taking over the same role.

    There does appear to a new line that is emerging in the TV's rally around the HDMI connector while monitors follow VESA standards. There was a brief moment where DP1.2 was found on the first generation of 4K displays as HDMI 1.3 didn't officially support 4K (it has the bandwidth for 4k30 as that figure didn't change with HDMI 1.4) but for the most part, DP has a been a monitor connector. I suspect that TV's will continue to use HDMI as the primary interface while monitors will transition from DP to USB-C, especially as USB 4 becomes common place.

    No HDR, no FreeSync, no quantum dots or similar color range for that money? No. One note of caution about OLED TVs as alternative: Beware of potential for burn-in if using your nice OLED TV as a monitor, especially at high brightness during the day. That's the main reason why I have forgone that route for now.
    Other points:
    1. Yes, there are fully articulated VESA mounts even for 60kg plus TVs or monitors. Installing them is a different story. You will need at least 2 strong or 3 average people to make sure it doesn't end up on the floor, and really good fasteners/wall anchors.
    2. What these JN displays show is mainly that mainstream TV manufacturers are not good at covering the full range of their market. I for one would love to have at least 1, better 2 display port connectors on my TV. Comes in handy for some situations.
    3. Ditto that for Freesync. It's open and free now, so why not? Would help differentiate TVs for not too much effort.

    IPS and piss poor contrast, once you touched OLED this feels like a pirate cannon on IBM war.
