The best 4K gaming monitor available, and probably will be until 4K 120Hz becomes available.

It's expensive, but this is the cheapest it has ever been by around £100.

Tom's Hardware reviewed it and concluded:

"...we think a premium display like the Predator XB321HK makes a great choice for a high-end gaming rig or even a nice desktop productivity system. Gamers will appreciate its low latency, G-Sync adaptive refresh and stunning clarity. Business and graphics users will no doubt find many uses for its vivid and accurate color-rendering.

It’s not always easy to reward expensive displays no matter how good they are, but the XB321HK represents a good value in our eyes. For that reason, we’re giving it the Tom’s Hardware Editor Recommended Award."

That was based on a $1200 price.

This is a great monitor and a bargain at this price.

Any good for console gamers?

I don't know, but I suspect that it would be less than ideal. If you connect with HDMI, you're limited to 4K @ 30Hz rather than the 60Hz available to DisplayPort.

I don't think the G-sync interface will work with non-nVidia display adaptors.

You may be better looking for a FreeSync/Adaptivesync monitor.

Just bought it. Nvidia Volta/Ampere my next buy... 💻

Thanks for the feedback. Was looking at the Samsung qdot 32 inch monitor

Nope , genuinely asking if it's any good for console gamers like myself, who like to game on monitors because their other half is always hogging the God damn tv!!!

Every time I see something like this I think "ooh shiny, maybe I should get one". Then I think "Oh yeah, I'd have to spend the same amount on a new GPU to run it". Still have some heat.

I run one of these alongside two XB271HU's. The picture quality is fantastic, but by God it's hard to run for games. It also has a weird issue where every so often for a fraction of a second the left and right side of the panel will lose sync and it will flicker ever so slightly.

I'm normally playing on my 165Hz 1440p so only see it in the corner of my eye, but it'd get annoying if I was playing on it.

Fantastic monitor. I bought one of these about 9 months ago. Really shines with games in 4K on the PC (can't comment on suitability for a console, sorry) and a good display for working from home with too. If you have a meaty rig that will handle 4K gaming then I would highly recommend it at this price, if you feel like splashing out!

One piece of cautionary advice though - if you are going to use it with the stand be aware it has a pretty large footprint. The back is chunky and sticks out quite some way, and the legs do stick out a bit in front of the monitor. I guess it's pretty obvious with a monitor this big but make sure you have a good sized work surface for it. Subtle and compact it is not

I don't think we'll see a QDot monitor, I read the sales weren't that good.

Samsung are showing their Micro Led panels at CES2018 which are better than oled due to no burn in and the same no back light.

The next thing.

I'm waiting for the higher refresh next gen models. I know this still has bugs and glitches and almost feels like a prototype. Whereas hopefully next year the 4K models with at least 120hz will be more like the ultimate finished article I would expect for the outlay.

They would be something I could spend £1000 on and not feel bad about it, because I would get at least 5 years out of it then. Until then i'm sticking with my high refresh.

when i click the link the price is 749.99...?

I don't know which monitor you're talking about - unless you've got a model number
argos.co.uk/pro…wcB

You'd probably be cool with this - depends if you care about 4k resolution/30 or 1080/60?

The monitor in OP is kind of overkill but you'd be fine with it.

I'd personally get something 1080p/60hz TN panel with a low response time for console gaming amazon.co.uk/Ben…G0O

Thank you once again for the detailed info. The monitor I'm looking into is the Samsung u32uh850.


I'm more inclined toward 4k / 60hz for the ps4 pro and xb1x. I'm just a bit sceptical about the 250/cdm2 brightness levels. But I've heard from other users that the quantum dot technology really makes the colours pop! But the price isn't doing much justice to the monitor.


I used to have TA panel but now game on the Asus mx279h ips panel - and boy can you see the difference in colour. Having said that, I don't think I'd want to go back to TA . Ips has noticeable light bleed and that's why I'm looking into a VA panel (which apparently has very little or no light bleed).

Where have you heard This? I'm looking for something similar . I can't deal with that hazy grey colour due to the light bleed.

I look on tech. sites.
One had an artical about the sales of QDot tvs.

Micro Leds have been in the news alot, it's Samsungs answer to LG oled. They are supposed to be showing them at ces2018.

Other companies will also have it. If it is that good then it would replace oled with none of the negatives.


The new batteries coming out that can charge full in 5mins using graphene.
Think that is Samsung as well, they'll make loads on that.

Same.
I want a new GPU but I know I would want a new CPU. Some more Ram. A new case. Some more harddrive space


Same with a £150 speaker offer I saw on black friday, I was considering but I thought no because my TV coated £350 so I would want to pair £150 speakers with at least a £1000 TV
