So I'm in a bind right now and I'm by no means a monitor guru but I do love my pixels... Just recently purchased a Xbox X and I'm still using mid tier 1080p monitors... I'd like to get a monitor that checks all the boxes, but there just doesn't seem to be one? My hope was there was a monitor out there priced at around 600 or even 700 dollars (tops) that'd be 27", 4k, IPS, support HDR and free sync... The more and more research I do the more and more this appears to be a pipe dream. How crucial is the panel type? I really don't care about viewing angles, I'm going to be sitting right in front of the machine, I'd never be using it at an angle... I'd also like an extremely thin bezel..

With that being said, do you think I should just wait? If I buy a 4k monitor now in the 4-5 hundred range, I definitely won't upgrade it for a few years for something minor like HDR support. Should I wait for a monitor that checks all the boxes? Or do you guys know of really nice monitors that are worth just snagging now...

Here's what I was looking at...

https://www.amazon.com/Designo-MX27UC-Type-C-Monitor-Adaptive/dp/B06XPJYVF2/ref=pd_rhf_gw_p_img_7?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=R6T8E9B9NRDZC9TAQHF8 - I have this same monitor now, but the 1080p version and I love it... I think I may go with this one but not sure.

Thoughts???

If you guys could steer me in the right direction that'd be fantastic. Looking to buy asap...

Thanks.
