Hi everyone!
Right now I have 24" amva+ Iiyama screen and it's just small and VA panel have a lot of ghosting(+flickering at dark grey patterns).
I've already considered and ditched 144hz and 2k ideas and I am now considering 4k, since I do not play online fps shooters.

I am targeting [email protected] monitor at 27-30" since more will not fit on my desk. No ultrawide. Just 16:9.
I want to use it for general usage, yt, movies and games. I just want picture quality over competitiveness. I hate aliasing so this could be nice.
I don't have a problem with lowering output res or lowering details and limiting fps to 30 with some newer games. I mostly play older games or indie and often with controller.

There are few options with reasonable price. What I've noticed is that even best 1080p panels have only 6bit+frc panels while all 4k monitors have 8bit+frc or true 10bit. I am one of "those" people who does notice banding, so again - this could help.
I've found these 2 monitors so far. I've picked them, because they have weird 1300:1 contrast listed instead of 1000:1 and adjustable stands... although LG is white which is not optimal... and NO reviews on those really.
Dell U2718Q
LG 27UD69P


Maybe some other 4k monitors worth looking at?

cheers

Mmm, are you fixed on getting 27-30"? They do make 23.6/8" 4k monitors.

Also, not all 4k panels are 8b+FRC. Some are just 8-bit, like the Samsung PLS variants.

24" is too small really. Especially at 4k. 27-30 is a must.
I don't think it matter if monitor is 8bit or 8bit+frc. It's not a choosing factor but it's a nice to have feature.
