    need a cheap monitor. no need for color reproduction/60+ fps/viewing angle/hdr, only thing that matters is hopefully no dead pixels. obviously every monitor has chance for dead pixels, i mean i dont want some samsung/dell rejects with guaranteed 5+ dead pixels. not really familiar with monitor market so suggestions are helpful, thanks.

    300 bucks gets you a 30 day perfect pixel period 3 yr warranty on the ViewSonic VA2719-2k at umart.

    330 gets u an AOC Q27P1 from pc casegear.

    a more interesting choice tho, might be the AOC Q3279VWFD8 from one of our sponsors Scorptec (review here) for a very reasonable 305 bucks - that slight bump to 75Hz is nice, and depending on usage/deskspace etc could make perfect sense for you.


    each has slight advantages - but all good budget options.

    thnx, decided to grab the samsung 28'' 4k since its so cheap. didnt know sub $400 4k monitors existed, if only phones dropped this much in price instead of rising in price.

    Phones can be had cheap if you don't buy flag ship. Just like your 4k monitor is entry level not a 4k hdr 144hz flagship panel.

    i know but when i got my 1440p monitor in 2012 4k were $2k at least if i remember. and there were no cheap 1440p monitor unless it's unknown brands (which are probably 2nd tier panels with lots of dead pixels). i beet hdr 144hz qled gsync will lose 80% of their value in a few years when 8k become mainstream.

    I don't think 8k will even be a thing for 27" pc gaming monitors. It's hard enough to see difference between 1440p and 4k mid game as it is at 27". Also we still struggling to run every game at 60fps 4k with 2080ti let alone where most gamers prefer which is 100+ fps.. We need the hardware/optimisation to be for 4k 144hz well before 8k is even considered as even 3 generations from now a flagship gpu won't be holding 60fps in AAA titles at 8k.

    4k isn't always about gaming though, the extra work space you get in some apps is awesome. So there are other uses besides gaming.

    But I do know the struggle of trying to keep 60fps in 4k gaming

    With Windows scaling I don't see the need to go much above 4k for a 30" panel. Plenty of workable space for 4 windows. Anymore might be too small.

    just got it. ur right about it being an entry monitor, the colors are greyish (quite a bit worse than my u2711 and that one is already bad enough compared to my qled tv), and top of monitor is darker the limited tn view angle is a problem even if u sit straight infront of screen (sides are bad). but it wasnt for gaming anyway. but the 4k sharpness is clearly visible on desktop and in games, i just cant afford a 2080 ti to game at 4k. i do think 8k will be a thing, 4k monitors still are noticeably different from phone pixel density. scaling needs to be resolved, no way anyone will use 8k with current scaling issues.
