    Hi all,

    So one of my Dell u2711's (i had two setup side by side) has finally died, looking for advice on a replacement.

    I use for Lightroom, some Photoshop but also gaming - DOTA, POW, Mechwarrior, Warframe, Supreme Commander, Risk of Rain 2 and random others, I am not a hardcore/competitive FPS player, but would appreciate a faster response than time than the U2711...

    14 bit LUT would be nice
    Must be at least 350 Nit brightness
    Must have 100% sRGB

    Ideally 100% Adobe RGB - i shoot FF Canon in Adobe RGB
    Ideally 27 inch, although would entertain 32 inch
    - 16:9 or 16:10
    Ideally 4k - preferably "Full 4k" - but that seems rarer?
    Ideally 100% Adobe RGB
    Ideally be 10 bit+ not dithered
    Ideally with USB C for my ultralight

    I do not want a curved monitor.
    I do not want a ultra wide screen
    I do not really care about HDR, might be nice, but should have HDMI 2.0a

    Ideally latest inputs, looking at paring with a Nvidia 2080ti
    My current PC is crap, waiting for new Intel / AMD chips to come out

    I am leaning heavily towards the BenQ SW271, seem to be the most recommended by reviewers and the additional modes look great, but is also around $1,899.00 AUD... would rather keep my spend around $1k

    Also on my list are;
    ViewSonic VP2785-4K - limited availability?
    Dell UltraSharp U3219Q - looks good and proper USB C charging / KVM
    Acer Predator XB321HK or XB271HU ? - no idea if these are any good for photo editing
    Dell UP2715Q - cheaper but older tech - Display Port in only option for 60hz
    Dell UP2718Q - ok if the firmware has been updated, but not great, there is HDR version that is much better but its $3k!

    Is there any other models I should be looking at?
