Definitely not a 28" 4K monitors since they all use TN panels with dull plus vertically uneven colors (vertical gamma shift) and very restrictive viewing angles versus IPS panels. 4K is not going to magically make games look better, especially on a 28" TN panel which are easily bested by 120$ IPS panels like the Acer R240Y.The LG 27UD58 (4K IPS) sells for around 400$ in the US, but buying a 60hz 4K monitor without Free/G-Sync for such old graphics cards is silly since...
The Samsung C24FG70 only costs 280$ new and is superior to the FG2421 in every way. The Eizo has low sRGB color space coverage (
Only consider Sony XBR series (and LG OLED if you have the $) like the X8003 or 8009 (43" VA & 49" IPS) instead (Rtings Review of 2016 X800D which is being replaced with the X8300E/830xE). The X800D series has much better colors (HDR & non-HDR) than similarly priced competitors, and is LED PWM Dimming or Flicker Free unlike 99% of TV's. PWM ruins motion clarity and makes some people suffer from health issues like head aches and/or eyestrain (source).It sucks. The...
The AOC has terrible image quality (very washed out colors caused by low preset gamma) while the Samsung has vastly superior image quality. The Viewsonic XG2401 also has much better image quality than the AOC, but the Viewsonic, along with all other TN panels, can not compare to the image quality the VA panel used by Samsung offers.
Comparing these two is silly since the Asus supports Nvidia G-Sync which is why it is one of the most expensive 24" 144hz monitors. The PG248Q's direct competitors are the Acer XB241H and Dell S2417G. The Asus is vastly superior and in a different league while the BenQ has been a mediocre, overpriced and irrelevant monitor for over 2 years compared to other "budget" options without G-Sync like the LG 24GM77 and Viewsonic XG2401 which are both cheaper and have much better...
This 170$ adapter is the only adapter proven to consistently work. I'm in the same situation as you since I also have two Qnix/X-Star monitors, but don't want to spend 170$ on an adapter. Amazon used to claim that this cheaper adapter works, but they updated it since it does not work properly either.The new Crossover (official thread; there are multiple models with multiple refresh rates) are much better than the Korean PLS panels since Qnix/X-Star use multiple panels...
Sure as long as you're fine with buying an objectively bad product made by a penny pinching (Flicker Free back-lighting is essentially a cost-free feature) manufacturer who does not care about their consumers, or about the fact that they're essentially selling fake 4K TV's (most of the cheapest monitors are Flicker Free and easily best most TV's when it comes to motion clarity).
Almost all modern monitors and Sony TV's use direct current or PWM/Flicker Free back-lighting, and so do LG OLED TV's. PWM/Flicker Free back-lighting is better for all since flickering back-lights which are not synced with the refresh rate ruining motion clarity and can cause health issues; the images I posted show the motion clarity differences between the two different types of back-lighting.Ignorance is bliss.If you read Rtings reviews of both the Samsung and Sonys you...
If willing to spend 800$ get a Sony X800D (43" VA & 49" IPS) instead (Rtings Review). The X800D series has much better colors (HDR & non-HDR) than similarly priced competitors, and is LED PWM Dimming or Flicker Free unlike 99% of TV's. PWM ruins motion clarity and makes some people suffer from health issues like head aches and/or eyestrain (source).
The first (TN panel with vertically uneven colors and restrictive viewing angles) and the third option (VA panel with horizontally uneven colors and black crush in the center) are not suitable for Photoshop.The VX3209-2K is an actual upgrade in every way compared to your current monitor, but the 480 is kind of slow for 1440p gaming. The other two monitors are downgrades image quality wise, and are not suitable for Photoshop, but the XG3202-C is good for movies and...
