It's dirt cheap for a 4K display. If it was height adjustable it'd make a decent office screen.

Not everyone is a competitive gamer, also 60hz on 4k is good enough let alone you need 800-1200$ GPU to push frames beyond 60fps at that resolution

^ This

Everybody who says that "oh you can't game on 60Hz" should really see a doctor. Yes you can and quite comfortably at that, maybe that comes with age? LOL Refresh rate has only real meaning for real die-hardcore gamers. I work/play all my life on 60 Hz (excluding times when CRT was the thing ;) ). I have one PG279q and I can't tell the difference (except weight) between it and ZR2740w or PA32UCK (age too?!?), but then I don't do FPS by any stretch. At 4K, there is nothing that can deliver consistent 60 FPS anyway so why the ridicule in the first place?

I don't really understand why you'd buy a 4k monitor purely for gaming, and why at 4k 60hz is not enough

there's more to the market than gamers. IMO these kinds of monitors might be for people who would like a monitor just to view 4k content, or for Productivity uses where 4k just gives you all that screen estate to fit more stuff in and whatnot. Gaming isn't everything in the PC world and it shouldn't be

Did you even read the article?

We're looking at a 27 inch, 4K IPS display for 299 EUR and you complain about 60 hz which is perfectly fine?

well a 1080ti barely manages to keep 60FPS at 4k in most recent games so ... unless you drop $$$$ a 2080/2080ti the refresh rate is more than enough for most use including gaming.

and hell you want an RTX with that "sweet" gen 20 to play in raytraced game ? you won't have more than 30-50fps so again who cares?


120+hz refresh rate 4k monitors are a joke, if you don't know why,

1- check the HDMI/DP version of most monitors and check the bandwidth of those.
2- check 4k performances of anything not 1080ti +
3- if you want to play in 4k on those GAMERZ display the only thing making a difference is the G-Sync module cause even with a 2080ti there's just no way you'll be playing at stable 120fps (and the module alone is probably more expensive than the screen in the news)

Then you'd realize the only thing to laugh at Is your sheep IQ.

Paying a "gaming" 4k monitor that alone cost more than the rest of the whole computer is what I call a nice joke, "gamer" branding is really the new "milking cow" branding, apparently.

you'd have a much better gaming experience playing on Ultrawide 1440p 120-144hz than on a 4k "120hz"

Also this is a 10bit(8bit+FRC) monitor which is a nice feature to have on entry level monitors. I would like to see good the calibration is out of the box and if furthur calibration is needed.

I guess whinning idiots will complain about products aimed at a content creators just because its 60fps whille overlooking features it offers for price just because it doesnt carry gaming tag or high refresh rates.

Heh well I think she meant that range of refresh rate: 59-61 Hz, not that uhd 60Hz itself is any bad.

Seriously this screen is freaking awesome, we have 4K it's IPS & 10bit colour & 60hz & great price

Personally Those WQHD panels make games look stretched & just wrong I've played WQHD
Starcraft 2 & Forza 7 & it's terrible. Forza cars look just horrific & SC2 doesn't support WQHD
I wounder if ya'll 120/144hz 21:9 ultrawide fanboyz enjoy watching movies with black bars?

Guys calm down, I was picking on the advertised specs:
Refresh rate: 59 Hz - 61 Hz :laugh::laugh:
Like why not introduce it as a 60Hz monitor. Or 61 ? lol. I just thought it was funny.

Fixed that for you, and yes, I enjoy watching movies without any black bars, yes. Also ultra-wide gaming like FPS or RPG ones.
Yep, I can ever ever use any other monitor now except for a 21:9

Hate to break it but that is a fairly normal way to put refresh rates in spec lists. Its always a range. Lets take a random monitor:

(Spoiler: if you look up this monitor you will find its remarkably similar, even in price - fair chance its the exact same panel even)
