I know a lot of people say that. I used to be like that too. However, there are some good TN panels that look rather nice. Can't just decide because of that.

My TN has great color accuracy and even beat its IPS cousin in some tests in RGB score. It ain't perfect, viewing angles are pretty terrible but at 144Hz and 1440p can't complain at all. Of course at $650 it's out of your current budget, but wanted to mention it so people know it is possible to get color accuracy in a TN...you'll just pay out the ass for it.

 

To your original question, the one you have currently chosen seems to be fine. A color profile can be found for it that supposedly tweaks it to optimal settings. And 28" of pure 4K goodness? Seems like a pretty good to deal to me. And 60Hz is fine for everyday stuff anyway. I'd say that AOC one is a good one overall, but what kinds of things are you going to be doing? Gaming? Photoshop? Epic Facebooking device?

I have 2 of the TN 4k 28" panels. They're nice but gaming in 4K still isn't really worth it right now. Colour and viewing angles are just ok but not great at all. Go with a IPS 1440p for the best gaming experience. Its still hard to push games in high settings while maintaining a minimum of 60 fps. I would be wary of the ebay monitors, sometimes they use sub par components and even the perfect pixel variants may still have one or 2 dead pixels. It looks like g-sync with 1440p, 144hz, and IPS like the Acer predator are outside of your price range. I would go with either:

BenQ XL2730Z 27" 1440p TN Freesync 144hz 1ms $283 Used, No bad pixels

or

ASUS PB278Q 27"1440p IPS 60hz? $300 New @Walmart

The first one because its 1440p and 144hz and is a really good price for no dead pixels.

The second is good too because its IPS and1440p for more accurate colours and viewing angles. Plus at walmart, if theres dead pixels, you can just return or exchange it.

Sexy build. @m_tieu does have good point though and that ASUS one is a frickin' steal. But you had in your original post that you eliminated that one already, but that would be a solid choice as well.

Well, the used one is not sold by a dealer, and there are pictures proving no dead pixels. Although I was thinking... couldn't I just scale down to 1080p or 1440p for gaming? Also, I'll be upgrading my GPU by getting a second 1070 prob in 1-2 years after building this.

You can carefully inspect the used one before buying but you can't do that with the korean monitors. Gaming on the 4k monitor with non native resolutions looks terrible to me. I personally can't stand it while other people seem to do it all the time and don't care. I would much prefer to play in window mode with the 1:1 scaling on the pixels so there's no interpolation or use lower settings with no AA or filters.

Well, I mean... the Korean ones are from Newegg... so I can return them. Also, what did you scale to? I heard since 1080p is 1/2 of 4k, it doesn't look that bad.

If you play on 1080p then the window is 14" diagonally or 25% area of the screen so all the pixels line up and maintains the same density. Read the section about this in the Display FAQ where it talks about 1080p on 4k monitors. If you can return the korean ones from newegg without having to pay return shipping then that's another great option as well. If they have artifacts or issues with the overclock you can return them, so its no risk to you. I just hate spending so much money on a new display and then having to deal with dead pixels. Some people don't care but I do. 4k monitors are nice but are designed to be used at their native resolutions.

I've made a lot of posts in this section but I still can't find the monitor I want. 1440p, 144hz, <$350. I realize G-Sync is outside of my budget. The most I am willing to pay for a monitor is $400. These are my final choices:

 

QNIX QX2710 27" 1440p PLS 60hz(overclock to 120hz) $259 New, Pixel Perfect $179 Open Box, Pixel Perfect

 

ASUS PB278Q 27"1440p IPS 60hz? $389 Almost Eliminated

 

ASUS PB258Q 25" 1440p IPS 60hz? $300

 

Acer XG270HU 27" 1440p TN? 144hz 1ms $379

The  XG270HU was a sale, unless that's it's new normal price.

 

I recently picked up the PB278Q and love it. I have zero back light bleed, and out of the box it's color reproduction was nearly 100% on point (tested with a Datacolor Spyder)

I have a qnix 27" 1440 IPS, I was able to overclock to 90hz. It is a really nice monitor as they come with either the LG or Samsung panel that apple uses for their retna displays, although they are the lower quality ones as apple is very very picky. Not to say that these panels are worse than any normal panel, its just like I said apple takes only the very best. My 'Pixel perfect' version had a single dead pixel, however I can only see it when on a full white background with a magnifying glass, and it is near the edge of the screen.

 

TN won't have the viewing angles or the nice dark blacks that IPS has, IMO IPS is worth it for sure. I was looking at some cheap 4k displays, and in general they seem like a waste of money with high input times and ghosting on some models.

 

I would also avoid ASUS when buying monitors, I have read lots of reports of failing displays and bad customer service. However I love asus for motherboards, this is just my opinion.

Since I'm worried about quality control...is this a good option? Basically the same monitor... for cheaper.

Bought mine off Newegg, and no issues.  I also leaned toward the PB278Q because of it's "Eye care". I can say after looking at it last night for nearly 12 hours(drinking and PC gaming) I didn't get any of that eye strain, eyes hurting feeling that I've got in the past on monitors.

 

The only thing you could do is buy one, and if there's something wrong, just return it. 

Looking at Newegg and Amazon, at least 75% of people who reviewed the monitor left a 4 star.  Plus if you read some of the negative reviews, you'll get the same feeling I did. They chose to complain, and not be patient. 

 

 

To answer your question about that BenQ I don't know. I kinda stuck with brands I've had good luck with when buying a monitor/tv : Asus, Acer, Samsung, LG and Dell. I dont know much about BenQ and didn't look at their products when looking for my monitor.

I chose the BenQ, actually. I like the Pixo alot, especially because the higher frame rate is better for overwatch, but I don't recognize the brand. And IPS takes precedence over frame rate IMO, so not the Acer but the BenQ. The 4k monitor isn't worth it imo at 60fps and on a TN display.

Always up for a game of chess

See @STRMfrmXMN @Energycore or @Starelementpoke for PSU needs

See @deXxterlab97 for blue fetishes (if that's your thing)

See @ShadowTechXTS for cats

@Implosivetech's got you covered for all your graphic design needs

And lastly, never put a CX green series PSU in a high end build https://youtu.be/Oybz5Q-If9M?t=7

Actually, I really like the PB278Q, why'd you out rule it?

Ah sorry. Misread. Pixio is supposed to be a Chinese-American company. The reason why I'm leaning towards the Pixio is because of it's pricetag. It's gotten good reviews... but also bad ones. It has a huge bezel apparently, and some have arrived with stuck pixels. Other than that, it doesn't seem that bad.
