Meh, 60Hz @ 4k and 4ms response rate. Better of just going for the 1440p (2k) version of this monitor at 144/165hz for a far better gaming experience.

Good price for this monitor but I would hold off on buying a 4K monitor until they roll them out with higher refresh rates at this price point.

Thats a very general statement, it depends a lot on the type of game you play. Also high fps needs far more cpu power than 60Hz/fps so depends on your setup.

Edit: Also all console gaming is a max of 60fps and with G-Sync you can achieve much better smoothness of motion at lower fps than non G-Sync/Freesync.

60hz is more than adequate. Good monitor for the money.

Does anyone know how to check refresh rate of iMac 27 inch please. Thanks

Also 4ms is normal for IPS of any resolution and I'd take IPS colours every time. With consoles and TV's an input lag of 40ms or below is considered good so while not the same thing a 3ms delay is going to be unnoticeable to all but the most hardcore/professional gamer.

I think you would be lucky to get a locked 60fps@4K with high settings, and current high end GPU's. Will stick with my ASUS PG279Q

Eh, Not really.. This is about what you would expect to pay for 4k 27" at only 60hz. Most of the money held in gaming monitors comes from the noticeable jumps in FPS.

They are coming out anytime soon, but at a launch price of nearly £2000 it's not remotely affordable for most people. Also remember that to run these Hi res screens you also need a high end graphics card if you want decent frame rates.

Not so sure about that. Once you've experienced 144hz it is EXTREMELY hard to go back to using 60hz. My girlfriend uses a 60hz monitor (my old one) right next to my 144hz monitor and the difference is absolutely insane, she thinks she's lagging half of the time because of the noticeable jumps, and she's always complaining about how mine always looks so smooth. Giggity.

We are saying the same thing, I said consoles were a max of 60fps knowing that many games are less, hence 'max'.
You don't buy this monitor unless using on a PC with NVidia GPU, the point is you cannot compare a set fps between g-sync and non g-sync monitors as at sub 60fps the g-sync (or freesync) will feel much smoother.
Paid £300 for mine
Still worth it however

Debateable, I take 4K 60hz over 1440p/144hz(4ms is an issue unless you have godly reaction). i mean you need GTX 1080 minimum just to hit 1080p/144hz, and there is not even a single card that can do 1440p/144hz. unless you and a pro gamer, majority would be happier with 60fps with great grahic fidelity at 4K

4ms response isn't about 'godly actions' it is 4ms added on to anyone's ability.

I don't agree that non pro gamers are 'better' at higher resolution, lower FPS.

It completely depends on your gaming styles.

Race games? Shooters? You should really consider 144hz+

Civ6? 4k would look great at 60 fps.

Response time(IPS min is 4ms, VN is 1ms) is not the the same as input lag. but even if its 30 ms input lag., you wont notice a different. for example. if you game on a 30ms or a 10ms input lag monitor. it wont affect you performance or enjoyment at all. unless arguably in pro gaming for game like CSGO. evidence for this is majority of gamer is on console with TV where input lag is much higher.

Bottomline is, the majority of gamer dont care about 144 hz and will be happier with better grahpic than 144hz

Yup. Response time is not input lag. They're both measured in ms but not the same thing.

This monitor actually has 10.2ms of input lag (Leo Bodnar) which is decent enough. Less than a frame of input lag at 60fps.
