The CHEAPEST 4K Monitor on Amazon

A single dead pixel means the monitor belongs in the trash, this is fact.

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Nah, not for a single dead pixel on a 4k screen.

Anything self emissive. or as a half messure, a high density FALD array equiped VA panel with fast pixel response.

The funky picture during overclocking reminds me of a 17" monitor I had...it would fill the screen would fill up with an all ghostly-white as if the display was busted; kinda like the photo, but with less color bands and more full screen colors. I guess it didn't support 640x480@75Hz (it always happened during the Windows XP boot screen).

Oh i know its not going to happen but thats more a representation of how bad of a state VDU industry is atm rather than my expectations.

LCD is an inherently flawed technology, surpased by previous older tech, and current newer tech such as OLED, and future tech such as self emmisive MicroLED,, yet it has been the only real option for many years now.

 

i mean look at the prices that are being charged for LCD VDU's, over £1000 for monitors,, even more so for larger TV's. Its insane becouse my old 1080p 42" Plasma will blow them out the water in terms of pure picture quality since none of them can come clsoe to the pure blacks self emmisive displays can produce. not to mention issues with pixel response, input lag , viewing angle issues etc. its digusting.

 

Any1 who has an old good Plasma, and/or CRT ..and puts them up against a LCD placed in the same price bracket will tell u that the older tech wins outright.

 

LCD may be all thats available, doesnt make it right, and ill call out crap when ever i see it. and LCD ..its crap, regardless of price bracket.

 

So this monitor may be cheaper,, it may be good for an LCD vs olthers ..but its still LCD ..so as i said in my 1st post.

 

is it good ?

nope, cuz its still LCD.

Wow! Finally one that I can afford. I might use this as something like a second monitor for reading while I game on a lower resolution, higher refresh rate one.

I currently have a Samsung 27” monitor that I use for video editing, I’m wondering if upgrading to a 4K monitor would allow me to see more on the screen at that resolution (timeline & panels) and possibly use the current Samsung as the preview monitor. Any suggestions? I don’t play games (at all) so I don’t think the 60hz limitation should matter much to me right? Also none of my footage is recorded at higher than 60fps. 

 

Thoughts anyone?

Depends on the resolution of your current monitor not it's size 27" doesn't really say much... 720/1080/1440(p) says alot more. Also Linus went over the color accuracy in this video saying it's probably not a great option for video/photo editing but if that doesn't scare you away, I'd say it's a great option again assuming your current monitor makes it a noteworthy upgrade.
