In the realm of gaming monitors, the long awaited Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ is something truly special. This is the first G-Sync HDR monitor on the market, sporting top-of-the-line specs like a 4K, 144Hz IPS panel with 1000 nits of peak brightness and 384-zone backlighting.
Was it Brazil 2014, Russia 2018, or will it have to wait for Qatar 2022?
If you're interested in replacing your desktop monitor with a 4K TV and want to know what to buy, you've come to the right place. Maybe you aren't quite sure where to start or could use a hand in narrowing your search. Whatever the case, this guide is intended to help steer you in the right direction.
When you're a creative professional in need of color accuracy, there are many high quality options available on the market. We're looking at one of these monitors today, the ViewSonic VP3268, which is one of the highest-end monitors ViewSonic sells. It's a large 32-inch 3840 x 2160 IPS LCD, complete with unique features geared specifically towards professionals.
I had toyed with the idea of using a TV as a monitor on a couple of different occasions in the past decade with no success, but with the advent of affordable 4K sets using a TV as a desktop monitor is finally feasible. Here's my experience during the past few months.
Amazon's Deal of the Day is a certified refurbished Samsung U28E590D 28" 4K monitor. We picked this monitor as a great buy back in 2015 as an affordable 4K option, but $270 is ridiculously low even for a refurbished unit. Of course, you're not getting state-of-the-art specs, but user reviews back it as a solid 4K offering for desktop work (not so much for gaming, in spite of FreeSync support). If you're coming from an old monitor, this will do great as a cheap upgrade, however note this is an affordable model with no height or swivel adjustments.
