Refresh Rate 30Hz, i mean wtf. You would never go below the standard 60Hz, and most people are looking at 144Hz! Dont know where the op is getting 60Hz from?

It says 60hz on the website?
Incredibly good value of specs are correct. (Not 30hz, but I'm pretty sure that isn't an option!)

look at the tech spec.
Is confusing states it is 2160 @ 60hz then in the specification states it is only 30hz so what is it?
Is this 2160 @ 60hz and 4k @ 30hz ?

Is this 2160 @ 60hz and 4k @ 30hz ?


4k is 2160 (3840x2160). Looking at the reviews, people are saying its 60fps however they aren't saying many nice things about it. If you really have to have 4k, go for it, otherwise buy a decent 1440p for similar money.
Can anyone confirm this is 60hz? If so bargain!
It is freesync, this means the refresh rate can change depending on what your computer is capable of pushing out.

I assume low is 30hz and high is 144?

TN panel. Not IPS. Amazon also claims 60Hz.

Not for me, but hopefully the info will help anyone interested.

if getting ps4 pro or upcoming xbox one x, wouldnt a 4k monitor be getting the most out of it vs 1440p?

Not sure 1440p is even going to be a possible resolution on XB1 - is it possible on PS Pro?
Have had similar monitor's, as someone else has put above. It'll be 4k @ 30hz & 1080p @ 60hz. Only really good for high resolution slide shows.
This is 60Hz at 4K for anyone who wants to know.

It's probably 60 hz if using display port, 30hz if hdmi if it's anything like my 4k monitor.

I had fun with it but it's just not worthwhile for gaming over a 144hz one at a lower resolution, so if you are a gamer I wouldn't recommend this.

Have had similar, 4K 60Hz when using displayport, but HDMI tops out at 30Hz. Likely the same here since it's not claiming HDMI 2.0 support but is claiming 60Hz 3840x2160.

Agreed, not a well-known brand, to say the least!

I don't use consoles, I assumed everyone just purchased TV's for them?

I was speaking specifically for PC's. And from the comments above, it's looking like it's 60hz via Displayport only do it really isn't suitable for consoles.

No room for a TV in my room where I have my consoles. For some reason you just can't get a 4k TV below 40". I know the benefits of 4k are lost somewhat at distance, but I thought there would still be demand. I'm interested in a 4k monitor for an Xbox One X but so far they've all been stupidly expensive.
I have two of these, it appears to be working at 60hz over hdmi at 4k unless my RX580 is lying to me.

Standard settings are a bit meh but if you take a couple of mins to set it up it's totally acceptable - I'm doing video editing on it and once you get the colours right, all good in the hood.

Except it is claiming HDMI 2.0 support, it's in the second line of the description.

4K future-proof connections: 2 x HDMI (2.0) and 2 x Display ports

My guess is it is running at 60Hz, just some confusion over the description somehow.

Shame this likely doesn't support FreeSync 2.0 (So no freesync over HDMI,) this would be a useful feature to have for the Xbox One X, which will support the VRR standard from HDMI 2.1
the website is very contradictory, i bought an early 4k Monitor from Dell and that was 60hz up to 1080p anything above was 30hz, something on this site is wrong and my money is on the 60hz at max resolution for this price so i would do my research before buying

I need a new monitor, what's good 1440p for similar money? I thought decent monitors all started at twice this price.

I recently got a second-hand 4k monitor that does 30hz 4k and 60hz 1440p - but only when you create a custom resolution on AMD crimson.

I found the website above great for testing my FPS!

1440p isn't supported on the PS4 pro. Yeah some games are rendered at that but trust me there is no option for 1440p. Also 4k monitors need to support HDMI2.0 as some only do 60hz through DP and 30hz through hdmi1.4. The PS4 doesn't work at 4k with HDMI1.4.
another unknown brand!! still waiting for a cracking deal...

I'm not in the market for one right now I afraid. You are right though, the good ones start at around £400 but you will be able to get a branded 1440p 60hz or if you prefer, a higher refresh rate 1080p around the £200 mark - this is even below entry level for 4k
Hardly future proof with no usbc sockets

Huh?
So this doesn't support 60Hz through HDMI?

It's actually 60hz....
Hey, seeing alot of conflicting reports on whether this is 4k@60hz over HDMI, anyone able to clear this up?
Thanks for the help if any can be provided.
Does anyone who if this Monitor has Freesync over HDMI? Because if so it could be a good option for the One X.
