None I think, and potentially disadvantages if it trades off image quality for speed.

Some colorist statet, that 120Hz has an advantage for grading. The monitor answers faster they think. If that is true really?

for rendering none

but for editing? depend on you, possible you can work faster at 2 times :) :)

....and that price....

Take a cheaper solution! With more compomises - but the question is, if you need HDR. But that is up to you.

maybe this one

Thanks for trying to separate me from my money! I'm retired now and mostly edit for myself and church. My "old" LG UHD4K monitor is serving me well. If it dies, then the Philips might be a good replacement.

Sorry, but I try nothing. Here was an question asked, and here was an answer.

Here's a new LG. If you can can live with 60 hz. Gotta get me one!
