Doesn't the John Lewis deal come with a longer warranty?

u28e590ds vs u28e590d

What's the difference?

This any good for PS4 Pro?

Cons: no vesa mount although an adaptor is available for £30, freesync is limited to 55-64, TN panel, shorter warranty than getting from John Lewis.

Pro: if you aren't going to use a monitor arm, you have nvidia graphics and prefer TN panels response rate this is a great monitor for the price.

I need 24 inch x 2

Looks like a cracking deal, not sure if there are any of this size under £300. TN panel is expected, IPS will cost you considerably more

I'm interested in this but TN or IPS? Will i notice much in games, I was thinking this or either a 144hz 1440p monitor? What should I do!!? (I have a 1070 Graphics card)

As someone who has recently bought a TN panel to complement my original IPS monitor, I can tell you that main difference I found between my two monitors was the colour reproduction, OUT OF THE BOX. My TN panel's colours initially seemed a little washed out (and poor contrast ratios), but a few tweeks in the monitor on-screen display settings/colour management settings in Windows, allowed me to get a much better colour quality (not quite as good as my IPS monitor, but comparable nonetheless). I've played games on my TN panel, and the colours aren't noticeably different. Also, if you just view your monitor from just in front, the "poor" viewing angles shouldn't affect you in any way.

It should be noted that my TN monitor is a 1080p 144hz panel, which I use at the full 144hz. If I reduce the refresh rate down to 60hz, my colours do become a little better. I'm not entirely sure how most 4k 60hz TN panels compare to my TN panel, but from my own experience, having a TN panel isn't too much of an issue, even if you are moving from an IPS panel.


And yeah, most people recommend a 1440p 144hz monitor over a 4k 60hz monitor, but the former will set you back at least £400. And I'm not so sure a GTX 1070 would reach 144hz at 1440p in most games, unless you turn down the settings a lot.

Also, this deal is HOT. Apart from that ElectriQ monitor, you won't normally find a 27/28 inch 4k monitor for less than £290 or so.

Back up to £304

Reason?


I was just curious whether it was possible to cold-vote your own deal. It turns out that it is.

Expired. There's a bashed-about 2nd-hand one in Amazon Warehouse, but that's it for now.

Its a TN. unless you are competitive gaminer(even then i doubt) you wont notices the 1ms vs 5ms response time. so a IPS is generally better but this being 4K for only £210, you cant get any better at this price.

whether you should get this or 1440p144hz is up to personal preference, although it probably cost £200 ish more for 1440p144hz monitor than this. If you dont plan on upgrading the monitor for years then its probably better to get this and save the £200 for next gpu upgrade. If you dont plan on upgrading the gpu for years, then better to get the 1440p144hz monitor as you card is not cut for 4K gaming, and anything other than native resolution will look more jaggy/blurry than native

I generally agree with what sion22said, but it might be worth reviewing this before making any final decision

According to the benchmarks the 1070 can acheive 40fps-60fps average at 4k in a lot of recent games (such as GTA V) on high/ultra settings, some others you may have to lower a few settings to acheive a high FPS but it's certainly a very capable card and 4k is definately not out of the question.

Thanks mate, I just got home from work and its sold out, Typical! I should of made my mind up soon lol

Plenty in Warehouse Deals from £185 amazon.co.uk/gp/…rue, I suspect the "scratched" ones will just have the sort of marks on the glossy bits you get from just taking monitors out of the box, if they are more serious it's easy enough to exchange or refund.
