lack of reviews is worrying? but miles cheaper than other places!

Ahhh damn. I just bought a monitor on fleabay for not much less. This looks great!

Certainly cheaper than elsewhere, but I'm not convinced it'd be money well spent. Hmm...

Says 'ex-display'. Not a huge saving!

Do they actually have any stock?

TN Panel, so no good for graphic design work, Photoshop etc. (IPS display preferable)

But excellent price for the spec, not many 4K monitors can be had for this price at the moment

I wouldn't say no good at all! I do all my Photoshop/ digital painting work on a TN panel and I've produced many things indeed.

Well it depends a lot on how bothered you are about colour accuracy. The limited colour gamut on a TN panel doesn't prevent you from using it, it just means that you will see colour banding in gradients that isn't actually there and if your pictures are printed it will be difficult to judge what the final printout will look like. But TN screens are decent enough for every day computer use and playing games etc and cost significantly less than IPS.

Is this a good monitor for gaming?
Looks like it's only 60hz 4K via display port so not bad but your GPU would need to support that. If you are planning on playing at 4K, I'd imagine you should be fine as the GPU needed would be in the GTX 900 or 1000 range. Anything lower than that and you'll struggle to reach a playable frame rate.

I really think 4K gaming is still way off. The price premium for such a small bump in quality at this size is a waste.

If you want the best gaming experience, get a 144hz monitor and the best GPU you can afford.

If you're a lover of high resolutions then yes this would actually be kind of perfect. 28 inches at 2160p will be beautiful. That said it is a TN style panel so I would perhaps expect the colour gamut to be less vibrant than a IPS or VA panel. Modern TN panels are still good, don't fall into the "only buy IPS" trap, the different is not that severe.

As for actual gaming, this monitor has FreeSync, which seems to be in the 40-60Hz range. If you own an AMD GPU, or are thinking of buying one, that would be capable of outputting games at 40 frames per second or higher I would recommend this. Remember that you do not need to play games at Ultra or use aggressive anti-aliasing, you have resolution on your side now. I own a 24" Acer 4K monitor and I am very happy with my purchase, I used an R9 280X until recently which was fine for >2 year old games and now own a GTX 1070. I would have loved FreeSync in a monitor, I think it might be the best thing to happen to gaming in years in terms of the experience.

I chose to skip 1440p as a resolution because of the availability of a good quality 4K monitor at an attractive pricepoint, just like this one.

(obviously this is all subjective opinion based upon my personal preferences and experiences, if you're a heavy FPS or 'competitive' gamer you would probably be better suited to 1080p 144Hz)

I respectfully disagree with a few of your points.

I have two monitors, a 1080p BenQ and a 2160p Acer both of which are IPS. It is not a 'small bump', the difference is quite noticeable.

4K60fps is not a long way off, unless you are deadset that you must game at Ultra. I owned an R9 280X (enthusiast tier 2013) which was quite capable of playing most games at over 50fps at medium or higher settings. Alien Isolation, Rocket League, and most of the games I actually play most were all fine. I would expect most people who are considering this monitor have either a stronger GPU than that if considering gaming, or are considering this for productivity reasons which should not be wholly discounted from the equation.

With FreeSync you only need to be able to hit over 40fps to sync up your refresh rate and get that smoooooth feel (provided you have an AMD GPU - side note: I own an Nvidia GPU but **** their incompatibility with FreeSync which should be industry standard now.)

Price premium is subjective, this looks very competitive to me when placed within market context and expected longevity of this display. Future proof is a dirty phrase in PC gaming, but hey this looks pretty good right?

Of course everyone will have different wants and needs and I encourage people to consider them over taking advice willy-nilly on the internet :3

It's TN btw so colours aren't as good as IPS

I'm convinced a lot of over-processed photos on the internet are as a result of people with poorer monitors trying to make them look "good", so that if you do have a half-way decent display they look over-saturated.

I don't know why so many are complaining that it's TN...you do realise that TN allows for lower response times(this one has 1ms) than IPS and so most gaming monitors are TN anyway?

....Great find OP!

When there was a curved 24" seeming a bit more than this 2 weeks ago at HALF this price I'd say this is very cold 4K or not. What use it it ona PC by the way ?

Why do firms even bother launching 8K displays when majority of consumers haven't even reached 4K yet? It is worrying than only because there is the demand for it, they will supply not realising how people might demand them but can't actually afford them. If 4K drops, great news! I can upgrade my monitors and TV's but then I would be classed as "behind in technology"

Still waiting on a refund from ebuyer from another deal. Be careful with these really good prices, it may end up "out of stock" even long after you get a confirmation email and they've taken your money. :/

I currently got a IPS screen BenQ GW2765HT 27" IPS LED Monitor, 2560x1440, 4ms monitor with a GTX 1070 GPU, would it be better to keep that monitor or to get this one?

depends on what your buying it for, I have never used my pc for gaming, well maybe age of empires nearly 20 years ago but I'm looking out for a couple of 4k large monitors primarily for Photoshop and Illustrator. I would have bought these in a heartbeat if they were IPS
