Nice monitor for just under £200, supports Freesync and a low response rate of 1ms. It's a TN panel, but I think at this price it's still good. It does have speakers and a displayport though - Price includes delivery too.

Voted hot for 4k
Any good for Xbox one x?
I'm tempted to get this but cheaper 4k monitors tend to be plagued by really bad ghosting issues or input lag despite the response time, does anyone know of any decent reviews of this model?
Says IPS in description but is TN as far as I can tell. EBuyer website had the same mix up in the full description as well.

Should work fine if it is HDMI 2.0, though I doubt it's freesync 2.0, so you won't be able to take advantage of that feature when support is added next months.

Edit: checked the manual online, it is HDMI 2.0 so should be OK for the One X, and it is just Freesync 1 so won't support the feature through HDMI unfortunately.

Yeah Acers own websites states it's a TN panel.

Take the plunge seeing as it’s hdmi 2.0
How does this compare to the AOC 32" at the same price?

I'd like to see where you are finding 4k 28" monitors with IPS panels for £200 if this is 'cold', what do you expect for £200? Jam on it?
Edited by: "Steelman111" 26th Mar
Yeah seems like a 4K 28" monitor would be pretty great for programming or spreadsheets. No need for IPS in your IDE or Excel.

For £200 you'd be better off going for a 27" 1440p IPS display than something like this.

4K isn't worth it unless you have the performance to power it and chances are if you're buying a cheap 4K monitor you probably don't.
where are the 27" 5k monitors?
Seems like a really great deal

You may need to do a little more digging as, in this article pcgamer.com/xbo…rt/ it says Freesync 2 is backwards compatible so, your XBoneX will also include ( with the new freesync capable TV's that is believed to not be arriving until 2019 ) support for all Freesync 1 capable monitors...

And, back on topic, this TN panel is the cheapest I've seen a 4K monitor go as of late last year, so this is a steal at this price IMHO!.. SO, get heat from me!..

That's a bit rude. My £250 tower is quite up to running a couple of spreadsheets side by side. That's why 2190 is more than twice as useful as a 1440. Maxing the data on display is the objective for this sort of device. There is a world out there who use PCs for other stuff than 4k videos and games.

Ooops, sorry, I forgot this is HUKD ;-)

As above - for programming etc, it does the job fine.
I have lent a Philips 40" 4k to my boss (I've now got the 43" version on my desk) who is running his from a Dell T20 Server that cost about £100 new I believe - doing the job fine for him with spreasheets, internal systems web pages and so on along with two 19" lowish resolutions to either side.
Seeing as eBuyer is pretty trustworthy and I've bought from them before plus this is the cheapest price I've seen this monitor go for in for ever, just gone and bought 1 as I can't justify getting 2, even to replace one of my current 2 4K monitors, I just can't... Man!.. Much scaling needed now... LOL...

I assume this would line up well with a one x? was gunna get a 4K tv but a monitor would suit me better
If you have a PC good enough to game at 4K then why would you then spend £200 on a horrible TN panel, I just don't know!

As I said in my comment this monitor only supports Freesync 1, where the Xbox One X and One S will both support Freesync 2. with the main Difference being Freesync 1 only works through the Display port, where Freesync 2 works with both HDMI and Display port.

I have done my research on this, there are monitors available today that support Freesync 2.0, the HDMI 2.1 standard is still not finalised so we have not seen any TV's with support for the standard yet, but Monitors are different.

Should I get this or the ElectriQ 32" for an extra £50 instead? I'll be using it as a TV for my PS4 Pro and the occasional second screen for my Macbook

I don't think you are understanding what I'm saying, I know Freesync 2 is Backward compatible, It is Freesync 1 monitors that are not forward compatible.

Freesync 2, compatible with both Display port and HDMI.

FreeSync 1 Compatible with only Display port.

If you buy a monitor with Freesync monitor that is Freesync 1, it won't support variable refresh rate through HDMI, even if it has a HDMI port.

This monitor is only Freesync 1 compatible, it's not got Freesync 2 support,so it won't support it through HDMI.

The Xbox One S and One X, will support Freesync 2, and it does not include the Display port, so Freesync 1 monitors will not work, may be possible if you buy a HDMI-Display port adapter, but that would be something that needs to be tested before it can be confirmed, and with the consoles not adding support yet, it's not something that can be tested right now.
