electriQ 24" 4K UHD 60Hz FreeSync HDR Gaming Monitor - £149.97 @ Laptops Direct
Posted 24th Aug

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

What stands out
  • The 4K picture quality delivers pin sharp, stunningly realistic picture detail
  • It supports HDR content so you can enjoy intensely vibrant colour, detail and life-like realism
  • AMD FreeSync eliminates any stuttering and tearing for even smoother gaming
  • There are plenty of connection options so you can connect to multiple devices at once
  • Reduces blue light emissions to help lessen eye fatigue, so you can game for longer in comfort

The detailsThis stylish 24 Inch model ticks all the boxes for a budget monitor and even manages a couple of surprises too. Not only does it boast a 4K panel that delivers four times the detail than that of Full HD resolution, its also loaded with the latest HDR technology, so you can enjoy life-like picture quality with natural highlights, deeper darks and vibrant colours. Its truly incredible to see, especially for a monitor at this price. Plus, with YouTube and gaming going all in on HDR, you can be sure of getting the most from the monitor for years to come.

The stunning visuals are brilliantly supported by AMD FreeSync technology, which matches the displays refresh rate with the frame output of your computer's display card to eliminate any annoying screen tear and stutter. Theres also the option to adjust the low blue effect of the screen to help reduce eye strain, which means youll be able to play for longer without any discomfort. At the back of the monitor theres plenty of ports for you to quickly connect up your desktop PC or games console, including 2 x HDMI and 2 x DisplayPort. It also comes with a FREE HDMI cable so you can have it set up and ready to go straight away.

Note: To get the best out of the high-end 4K @ 60Hz resolution this monitor provides, we recommended using a powerful dedicated graphics card. Models such as the Nvidia 10 series or AMD RX 5 / Vega series over a HDMI 2.0 or DisplayPort connection will deliver the best experience.

Decent deal for cheap HDR 4K monitor.

Only a VA panel, response time just below 10ms

Having got both IPS and VA panels personally, unless you're playing in practically direct sunlight, VA panels are much better than IPS. The blacks are just sooo much better. And IME, for gaming anyway, dark blacks are used far more frequently than really bright whites.

Fair point, I wasn’t really thinking of this is a gaming monitor despite the freesync as it’s only 60hz, personally I use a 4K IPS as a general multimedia monitor and having the wide viewing angles is super helpful so I was thinking of it in that use case.

Why are you looking at the bezel? The action is on the bit in the middle.
Any good for ps4 and xbone?

IMO, yup. As mentioned though, it's a VA panel, not an IPS panel.
The key difference is that a VA panel produces better blacks than an IPS, but an IPS produces better whites than a VA. But light is relative, meaning if you play in a room that is darker, (or you have bias lighting behind the display) then VA is better. Conversely if you're in a bright environment you'll want an IPS panel.
In dark environments IPS looks too bright, in a light environment the VA looks dull. You get the idea I'm sure.

For PS5 and XBSX the 60hz could be slightly restrictive as both of those consoles will benefit from 120hz. But for PS4 & XB1 60hz is fine.

I've just ordered one for my wife FWIW.
Surely 1440p is a better option at 24 inch, 4k seems a bit much?

Cheers I might bite, currently running an acer but not 4k will it be a significant difference or should I just stick with what I've got?

¯\_(シ)_/¯
Only you can be the judge of that based upon your set up. Ambient light, viewing distance, what you're gonna display on it, even how good your own eyesight is.

My logic was; my wife is using a 23" 1080p Acer monitor. She doesn't want a large screen*. She sits 75cm eyes to screen.
So, this is only 1 inch larger. It's 4k, and she uses an XB1X so it'll give better picture quality there, however small. It's also HDR, and her current screen isn't. It *also* has audio out, and her current monitor doesn't. As she also has a PC this has led to a convoluted audio solution involving an optical/RCA converter, and we can now scrap that. It's a VA panel, and the room is generally dark.

So it's a lot of small plus points for her, and replaces a 4 year old monitor, for only £150. I can keep her old 23" monitor in the loft for the inevitable time when one of the kids needs a screen.

*Where as I sit 80cm from a 43" 4k HDR TV! 😁

Whilst 4k is probably overkill, I agree, do 1440p monitors exist that do everything the same as this one, and are cheaper? Is it worth saving £10?

Yes, pretty sure you can get an aoc 27 inch for the same price, ips etc, with 75hz refresh rate.

So when you say yes you mean no.
24 inch vs 27.
VA vs IPS.
60hz vs 75hz.
4k vs 1440p
Less than £150, not the same price.

What you've described is a completely different monitor. And for me personally, certainly not as suitable.

you dont have to use the 4k resolution, you can lower it to whatever you are comfortable with or your machine specs allow ie 2k seems the optimal for my graphics card for games but there is the option for 4k for other things like videos or films. For this price it is a no brainer for me.

A well deserved HEAT.

Sorry I must be going blind, I read the price of the monitor that I was talking about as 239 rather than 139.

If your looking for something similar, there is an electriq monitor that's 27inch 1440p and 95hz that sometimes goes for around 170, I've currently got that as my main display and for the price it's a very nice monitor, my only slight complaint is that the blacks arent very dark, but for the price it's a very good monitor.

I think it's on amazon for 179 if you were interested.
