All 4K Monitor Discounts, Offers and Sale - September 2018
XD Funny guy. Have a nice day (popcorn)
Indeed, because, of course, you cannot possibly be doing anything else of any worth whilst at home waiting for a pick up.
Think I'll take a pass then and get a faster refresh, I never have any luck with vsync it just doesn't seem to do anything.
You clearly value your finite time on the earth less than I do.
Amazon won't price match, they gave me £20 off my prime subscription since I use them a lot. They said I can still return it but since I missed this deal I can't do much else.
I was thinking about getting this for my Xbox one x but am confused as to the 4k and the dp. Anyone want to simplify it for me
I can see that you are not at peace. Stay that way.
"People" no one else gives one mate, only the train spotter quoting me.
Exactly, the discussion is over since people can judge the validity of your answer. Happy days!
What does it matter what else I do? You said no one uses a monitor only for gaming. I'm telling you they do. Proved wrong, discussion over.
seems to be back to £459 now and not sold by Amazon.
True, smaller typically means cheaper, but the point is that regardless of size, doing 'true' HDR requires a very high quality panel and backlighting and display controller. For IPS in particular, to do HDR you really need full array dimming, which just isn't gonna be achievable at such a low price point. Another problem with TV's vs monitors is production volume. TV panels get made in quite high quantities, which helps reduce manufacturing costs. Panels for monitors usually see quite the opposite.
In his enthusiasm to belittle your TV choice he most definitely did miss your point ! :p You're right though; it isn't unreasonable to expect a fairly decent HDR experience from a monitor of this price. It should be at least as comparable an experience to a £500 TV in my opinion ;) Problem is a lot of monitor manufacturers are cashing in at present with this pseudo HDR in a bid to capture the more mainstream market where current top end HDR monitors just can't reach because of their, currently, exorbitant price-tag. He was correct in part though i.e. prices will come down - might take another 6 months perhaps.
Why not? A 27" monitor is less than 1/4 the size of a 55" TV. Fair enough, the monitor wouldn't be 1/4 the price but it's not unreasonable to expect that the price might scale. Monitors don't even have as much tech in them (no TV receiver or Smart TV equipment)
The size of the monitor isn't relevant.
Hey man , ordered this monitor last night when it dropped in price for a bit, will arrive tomo. I would be grateful if you could share some settings details if possible. Otherwise I'll play about with it and see how it goes. For 318 I couldn't resist. :D
Excellent! I'll deffo look into the denon 4k receiver as I don't want to be swapping cables around in the near future. Thank you (highfive)
Yes this is a QLED panel. Hdmi port 2 is 2.0 so 60hz at 4k. Hdmi port 1 is 1.4 so 30hz at 4k. I use a Denon 4k AV receiver as a hub for the hdmi inputs to overcome this issue and have multiple 4k 60 devices attached over hdmi.
Thank you once again, I'll give this a go and see how I get on. Btw is this a qled VA panel and are both hdmi ports at 60hz (was thinking of hooking ps4 and Xbox one x) ?
Once you've set it up and had a fiddle with the settings it looks fantastic, this will be personal taste but I prefer the colours to my £500 Acer predator IPS. I've watched a few 4k blurays on this recently and am very happy. The VA panel does a great job for £355. Deep blacks with no bleed.
Very impressed. Had 24 hrs. this is coming from a terrible TN screen on my laptop. keep getting shocked by how vibrant the colours are. like looking at a printed page.
price has jumped to £279.99
nice picture on the OP - waiting for that ghostly face to jump out at me.
https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/UM.HH7AA.008 Their own spec page indicates it's 2.0. That user was probably using some really old, non-high speed HDMI cable.
Definitely not buying from them now, they jumped up the price to £ 279.99, this deal should be expired so as not drive traffic to this opportunists.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0742RF3T7/ref=psdc_428652031_t1_B078SDG7BY this one not too bad and is cheaper and is the 2018 one with Acer ET430K 43-inch UHD Monitor (IPS panel, 5ms, HDR Ready, DP, HDMI) Price: £380.99
3 years without a tv license would pay for this product, of course the trade off is a broadband connection and no live viewing.
Nobody is going to play competitive games seriously on a 49" 60hz display. Response time is irrelevant.
I see what you mean, e.g. this list of TVs and their input lag. Even in game mode they're always worse than a monitor, coming in over 10ms but not by much except Sony. Now if only we could get any of these models in the UK and for less than this monitor! There's a 15ms (4K 60Hz 4:4:4) Samsung on there that I can find in argos for £630 from a brief look but the LGs aren't available.
Christ I have the 40" version and struggle with the size and I like things big
Thanks a lot for that. I was wondering about eyestrain... Funnily enough, I was alos thinking about a slightly smaller size - 36" I was thinking could be the optimal middle ground. My gaming equates to an hour a week if I'm lucky! And it's proper escapism, so no multiplayer - just solo gaming. Ultimately I will be wall-mounting, but for the time being it'll be on a stand at the back of the desk...
I am not in to proper MP gaming and at the moment and I am using a cheap 43" hitachi (vestel), very happy because it was cheap at the time and I play only single games from time to time. Now you should be able to buy better for less (proportionally). Up to 43" you would also hardly need do struggle with proper set up in order to center the monitor to your view. If you got the chance and you got a wall were your desk is, I would strongly recommend to hang it in to the wall, use a proper wall adaptor the one that can shift up/down and left/right. Then you shift/pull the desk to a distance comfortable to you. Choice is yours, there are a lot of Samsung going for less than £500 at the moment if you want all the frills they come with at the moment, response speed in game mode are also the best, usually. I love the curved one but if you are in the graphics works you might prefer a non curved one
I have a 40" Samsung 4k TV as my main monitor (design/animation). It's doable but it does put a strain on your eyes. I found reducing brightness and dimming the backlight help. I would go for something around 30'' instead imho.
Please could you elaborate - I'm contemplating a large monitor like this (or more likely 43" or 40") and I'm trying to determine if it is a viable set-up. Mainly for work - multiple document review, Excel, browsing, some light gaming... I'd be very grateful for any tips.
Should be tested to be appreciated but it is a risk if used as a gaming monitor, not even advertised as gaming monitor. A good curved HDR 4K TV would do a lot better in my opinion. I love big screen because of the flexibility to make custom made cinematic resolution. 1 year ago I used a Samsung 49KS as a monitor, fantastic but I had to return it because of some bad bleeding. For that size an exceptionally good set up is needed if used on the top of a desk otherwise will be uncomfortable, talking about centering the image to be in full eye control at a distance of 90cm believe it or not Hot for the cheapest price anyway
It's good enough, certainly no complaints for what it cost. I'm just using it as a 2nd monitor so didn't need anything special, just more dots. As expected the stand is poo, no vesa mount, the buttons are hidden away and require a lot of pressure to activate. Screen wise it's nice and bright/clear but could certainly do with some colour calibration. Viewing angles have not been a problem, better than I expected for a TN panel. Not tried the speakers. USB3 uplink cable, DP to mini-DP and HDMI cable were included in the box, no VGA or DVI on this model. HDMI 2.0 is supported, but the default options have it disabled. If you are using a 4k console then you'll need to turn this on. DP is a better choice if you have the option.
Mine was just delivered, I'll not have a chance to test it until tonight.
cold, not blessed with gsync or 165hz, also i want the moon on a stick ;)
Dell 2716DG is worth a look, normally around £450.
States HDMI 2.0 in the Amazon listing, as does the AOC website. Shame there’s no VESA mount
Would need to confirm HDMI is 2.0
Same price on Amazon, was £230 3 weeks ago.
Would this tick all the boxes for 4K usage on the Xbox One X?
It's fine on a desk. First impressions on this are great - very happy with the performance at this price point. It's not as big or as IPS as my 40" 4k BDM4065 screen, so the text is smaller, but a lot more usable than 4k 24". Nice heavy brushed aluminium stand and looks sleek. Physical buttons rather than touchpads hidden below the surround - much better as I find touchpads don't always register. Sockets on the rear face backward rather than downward, so easier to plug/unplug cables as you can see what you are doing. Very nice ...
Is 28 too big for use on a desk?
I got the LG27UD68P which is IPS and has been fantastic. Managed to snag it for £220 on a Amazon Warehouse deal. Currently £400: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B01D7OZR2G?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_pd_title Which I think underlines the value of this AOC one.
id rather see the enemies head in my scope when sniping.
Sounds decent monitor and I like it had speakers even though there not good. If watching a bit of YouTube rather have speakers than putting on my headset. This interests me. I was looking at alternatives of: ASUS-VP28UQG Samsung U28E590D
Tempted now for my Xbox one X (y)
I think they were referring to modern AAA Ultra gaming at 60fps. We will have to wait until next year for some new AMD cards unfortunately. Heat for the deal.
Using one of these right now. Heat added.
You can run these on a very inexpensive GPU @ 4k, sub £100 2nd user 1050 or £110(ish) new, will do the job fine worldcup
Would love to get one, but can't really justify the ginnnnnorrrmously expensive graphics card needed to run em.
Yep, doesn't bother me though.
I've been using mine for a couple of weeks now and it hasn't flickered or flashed once... does yours suffer with this affliction?
Anyone who's still following this thread, I only set my monitor up at the weekend, very impressed. Stunningly accurate colours, no pixel errors and absolutely none of the problems talked about in this thread. An absolute steal at this price.
I ended up buying one as I needed a 4K monitor fairly quickly. I've got the flashing issues, though at the moment they are few and far between and it's not too distracting. The monitor weighs a ton too. It's a bit naughty of Acer to still be selling these though with that defect. If i'd paid £700+ for this without the knowledge of the problem i'd have been fuming.
You get it replaced?
Great monitor, got it for 250, sadly came faulty from ebuyer (second gen) :(
The 250 model is the one I got which was HH7EE.026 and this one is 30. Unsure of the difference. The 26 one is HDR
i ordered mine thur 7pm and got it frid afternoon , i paid for next day delivery
When did you order? I ordered Wednesday night and have an estimated delivery of next Friday!
There aren't any equivalent LGs (or any other brand) which display 100% Adobe in 32 inch 4k at anywhere near this price. Excellent monitor and price, ordered last night.
Do you have a link to this LG?
£739.97 on Amazon?
Why would you buy that when you can get an equally expensive (£10-15 cheaper) LG 4K monitor,
does it come without stinky Acer written on it?
Unfortunately for me, I didnt notice this issue until after 30 days had lapsed and ebuyer pushed me to Acer and I regret buying this monitor at all, as Acer Support is rubbish, I have aranged for the monitor to be collected for repair. It took 5 phone calls to get the UPS shipping label. pathetic
Did you manage to fix this? I've only had it be an issue with 1 game and only on pc not on the ps4. Also I had a faulty usb c port so ebuyer are going to replace it once they check it. Didn't have any issues contacting them.
These two would be good as an air option: CRYORIG - M9i 48.4 CFM CPU Cooler and Noctua - NH-U9S 46.4 CFM CPU Cooler. The Noctua is the pricier and better option.
Hey, you're welcome :) stock cooler would do for now till you get something better. Maybe: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0763PS24T/?tag=pcp0f-21
Thanks I managed to get a new/other from ebay for £105, do you know if my stock cooler I got with my G4560 would be ok with this or would I need a new fan?
What? It's only good if your FPS is low.. I have a GTX 980 and almost have never seen screen tearing. There is literally no other benefit for gsync/freesync. You described what a monitor is (although TV's tend to use a special panel type I forgot the name of or IPS for LG tvs), raw screen capture - why would you want image/video processing for your computer?
Any particular calibrator? I got this monitor today for work (I'm a designer) and I know it's a TN panel and not an Apple Display but want it colours and brightness to be better.
Good price. I bought the very same one back in November (Black Friday) for £259.99. I'm very happy with it.
TN panels suck. Pay a little more for an IPS or even a VA.
I have purchased from laptops direct 2% cashback also no idea how this monitor could be so cheap with those specs
Still rocking an fx6300 and 7870xt build from 5 years ago. Can't justify current prices for anew build
Looks like a sofa. Wait, am I doing this right?
It looks like it is walking..
@pavel.pavel unfortunally it's now out of stock
Whare i can found it ?
@pavel.pavel it's still available, I've changed the link
Out of stock (((
Beat me to it. Got my Camelx3 alert this morning. Amazing price for the spec. Misleading that the Amazon listing states 200hz (oc) in the title though!
Expired? Not seeing £219 for this monitor anywhere
I think some monitors can reach higher frequencies at lower res but that's usually because of hdmi bandwidth limitations rather than panel. Looking online it seems hdmi 2 caps at 120Hz at 1080p, so it could possibly go faster at lower resolutions but that's ignoring the possible limitations of the panel itself. Either way if it can reach 200Hz it won't be at 4K.
good point...don't know why amazon's title says its 200Hz but it seems to be 60Hz when looking at spec sheet
Never heard of a 4k monitor oc'ing to 200hz?
£20 cheaper if you buy direct from Ebuyer. https://www.ebuyer.com/756117-acer-rt280k-28-4k-ultra-hd-led-monitor-um-pr0ee-001 Daily deal as posted earlier.
