Looking for a new Monitor

Recommended Posts

So I'm getting a new PC, and I figure I should also get a new monitor. I want to keep my old one around for my console, which I never use but have space to set it up.

 

I'm thinking of getting 4k monitor, but I am on a budget of about £400 (~$550-$600). I did find this, which came recommended on a review site:

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-U28E590D-28-Inch-LCD-Monitor/dp/B00WUACE4S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495105225&sr=8-1&keywords=Samsung+U28E590D

 

There are so many choices for monitors and TVs these days that I'm lost for choice. Does anyone have a recommendation, or advice for what I should be looking for?

If you decide to not go for a 4K monitor, I would suggest the Asus VG248QE. 

 

It's 1920x1080, 144Hz, supports NVIDIA 3D Vision (if that's something you care about). Goes for about $250

I as well suggest the asus vg248qe. I have it and LOVEE it. Have had it for about 2 years now, no issues, picture is FANTASTIC. They do make one 4k but its close to 700 bucks IIRC were the 248qe, now, is probably close to 200

Asus VG248QE does look good, and is affordable, however I was looking for something bigger. Nearer 28"

I just bought an LG 27" 27UD58. It's a 4k IPS monitor and the only one that I could find for  <$500. I have been thrilled so far. I briefly thought about going to a  21:9 setup, but it seemed more advantageous to those that do video editing, or other work that would benefit from a larger workflow space. As for the LG, like I said I am really happy. Even though I don't do anything that requires color accuracy, it is pretty spot on. I am an ISF calibrator (although I have not calibrated a TV or projector in years), so even though I have not thrown a colorimeter on it I can tell that is well within expected tolerances for what you would expect. There are definitely better monitors out there, but for what I need, it was perfect.

 

One slight annoyance; all the icons got really tiny! Easy fix for windows, but Steam popups are still unreadable. If someone has a fix, fill me in.
