4k ips at 60hz - 200£ ...for people who work at home that do not game a lot or not at all seems like a great deal.

So many great monitor deals, holding out until Black Friday or Christmas sales
I have had this monitor, it's really quite a decent panel.
Tempting but is 4K @ 24" even beneficial?

Easily. The only debate worth having in my eyes is having 4k on a smartphone, a monitor is a no brainer.

Thanks, was just about to buy this but seen it has been cheaper I will hold off, great deal though.
Can imagine some text scaling will be needed at this size

I bought this a few months ago at this price, while most people argue a 24 inch 4K monitor isn't good... I think it's pretty nice. Scaling may be required as said by some people but for me 100% was fine. Just be aware that you are expected to sit close to this monitor to get a better 4K experience.
There is a decent review on the eBuyer site of this monitor, goes quite in depth about it. The scaling is apparently best at 150% but that is just an opinion.

IPS // 4K // 4ms response time // 60Hz // 80% sRGB // Good stand and build quality // Cheapest 4K monitor on the market apparently.
This is a good monitor but I would recommend getting an ultrawide monitor or use a 4k tv instead.
The monitor can be overclocked to 73hz.
When placed next to my old 23.4 AOC 1080p monitor it was better, but the difference was only noticeable when looking for a difference, it wasn't night and day.
This went cold cold cold when I posted it in April...
any idea on its input lag?

how long ago?
I bought a 4K monitor and then found that if you want to run games on it at 4K then you will need one of the new higher end graphics card such as a 1080 or 1080Ti Even the previous generation 980Ti struggles with framerate on certain games, and yes you can turn down the settings, but just to gain 4K on a monitor this size?

I have this monitor and running it with an i5 system with a GTX 1070. It runs some games in 4K no problem with no issues with frame rates but other graphics hungry games will still struggle.

That being said the monitor is quality for me, as stated earlier can also be overclocked to 73hz too using DP. I would recommend for the price.
Prefer 10bit colour in my monitors but Samsung stopped selling the U24E850R and the LG 24UD58 has terrible backlight bleed so maybe this will have to do. Strange to include DVI when that can't do 4k @ 60hz.

Use with a MacBook Pro in retina mode (aka HiDPI) and it's pretty much the perfect size.

edit: clarified 4k@60hz

Dual link DVI.
Very nice price but no freesync which would be the icing on the cake.
What makes this inappropriate for a gamer? Monitor novice here. Looking for something to run an Xbox One X on.
If this had freesync as well it would be an amazing deal

HUKD is an odd place. Doesn't help that, more often than not, once a few people click either 'cold' or 'hot' other users tend to just follow suit without really looking at the deal!

There's been numerous social experiments that confirm that conformity is often the 'safest' choice for people.

In a humans bid to become 'normal' they will conform, regardless of whether they actually agree to it or not, and it's present in more things that you might think.

Game of thrones is a perfect example - Fantasy/Drama, taking notes from Warcraft, Dungeons and Dragons..basically anything that predates it. Socially shunned as 'Nerdy' and 'Geeky' and yet GoT is loved by Millions, and why? because it gained popularity in the early days, which in turn gains it even more popularity and so on and so forth. Have to wonder, how many people would be into other Fantasy based series. My guess, not so many.

Works the same here, how many people do you think have heated a deal for no reason other than it's already hot? I've done it before without even realising, without even thinking.

Humans are weird.

Are you sure you have this exact monitor? Because one thing that annoys me about the CB241HQK is that its panel refreshes at 60Hz only. You can input non-60Hz video, but the monitor will either drop or duplicate frames because it always refreshes the panel at 60Hz.

Go to testufo.com/
If you set your PC to output at 60Hz, the little moving UFO should be silky-smooth.

If you set your PC to output anything else (like 72Hz), the UFO movement will probably be slightly jerky, because the monitor drops frames in order to refresh the actual panel at 60Hz.
