As you can see in the list, there are quite many different types of 4K video monitors, ranging from around $300 up to a bit over $1000. But, the most expensive may not be the best option for you and that’s why we’ll go into the details of each and every one so that you can choose a 4K widescreen monitor that will suit your needs without overspending.

Apart from their size, these 4K PC monitors can be divided into three categories: gaming, professional work, and everyday use. If you’re looking for a 4K gaming monitor, it’s recommended to pick one with the adaptive sync technology.

Variable-Sync Technology

This technology, be it Nvidia’s G-Sync or AMD’s FreeSync, synchronizes the refresh rate between your monitor and the graphics card’s GPU. In order to benefit from the dynamic refresh rate, you’ll need a G-Sync compatible or FreeSync compatible graphics card and the monitor with the matching technology. Although G-Sync monitors are significantly more expensive, they’re the better choice because Nvidia cards deliver a better 4K gaming experience at the moment. At least until AMD releases Vega cards.

Nevertheless, both technologies drastically improve your gameplay experience by helping you maintain a steadier FPS (Frames Per Second) rate and by eliminating screen tearing, stuttering, and reducing input lag. Each monitor has a different dynamic refresh rate range, but we’ll get into that for each monitor individually.

Gaming at 4K with maxed out settings also requires a powerful high-end computer equipment, so if that’s out of your budget, have a look at our gaming monitor guide for more budget-friendly displays.

4K Monitors for Color-Critical Work

When it comes to 4K computer monitors for the professional and aspiring graphic designers, photographers, video editors, and alike, we’ve only selected the monitors with full-color gamut coverage. These ensure flawless brightness and color uniformity and accuracy. Furthermore, we’ll go into the details of which color space coverage is needed for what job, so that you don’t pay for extra gimmicks that you won’t have any use of.

Additionally, you can check out our photo editing monitor buyer’s guide for a more diverse selection of monitors with different screen resolutions. If, however, you’re looking for an everyday 4K monitor for watching movies, surfing, and casual gaming, we got you covered here as well, although you can also check our guide on the 4K budget monitors. We’ll make sure that you find the perfect monitor for your needs.

Upcoming Gaming Monitors

In 2017, many monitor manufacturers announced some exciting, groundbreaking, new monitors that will be available sometime throughout this and the following year. A lot of them, in fact, feature 4K resolution but with some upgraded tech such as HDR (High Dynamic Range) and higher refresh rates. Moreover, the Dell UP3218K is the world’s first 8K resolution monitor.

Gaming at 4K will finally not only look amazing but feel a lot smoother as well, thanks to the upcoming 144Hz HDR 4K monitors, the Acer Predator XB272-HDR, the ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ, and the Acer Predator X27. However, the release dates of these ultimate gaming machines have been postponed to Q1 2018. Alas, there aren’t powerful enough graphics cards for that available right now (and probably until 2018) anyway.

4K 144Hz Monitor

Fans of the immersive 3440×1440 ultra-wide gameplay will also be able to finally surpass the maximum overclocked 100Hz of the currently best ultra-wide gaming monitors. The ASUS PG35VQ and the Acer X35 will allow for an amazing 200Hz refresh rate at the UWQHD resolution. On top of that, they will feature G-Sync HDR. The release date of these is most likely Q1 2018 as well, although it’s not officially confirmed yet.

HDR Monitors

The HDR format may be already popular in 4K TVs, but it’s only beginning to surface in the world of computer monitors. However, since there is little to none HDR content for PC as well as limited support and viability for it by browsers and operating systems, unlike the applications for HDR on smart TVs, HDR monitors aren’t quite viable yet. They are a good investment if you’re a content creator in which case you may want to check out the Dell UP2718Q with HDR10 compatibility. Also, beware of false advertising of “HDR” monitors such as the Dell S2418NX which don’t actually meet the HDR10 standards but simply have an image altering feature dubbed as HDR, similar to certain smartphones.

The list will be updated every time we come across more excellent 4K monitors. In the meantime, these 4K PC monitors are the best ones available at the moment. If you think we’ve missed any great 4K monitor or if you agree or disagree with some of our choices, let us know in the comment section below and we’ll try to make things clear.

Best 4K Monitor – 27″, IPS, FreeSync
(Editor’s Choice)

Best 4K Monitor

The LG 27UD58-B manages to combine all the key specs and features needed for an immersive viewing experience whether for gaming, movie watching or working, and present them at an alluring price. Although this monitor is available as an upgraded version, the LG 27UD68, it’s still more popular due to its more affordable price but equally good image quality. Its IPS panel covers over 99% of the sRGB color space with 10-bit color support through dithering (8-bit + FRC). The LG 27UD58 display features a rapid 5ms response time speed for minimal ghosting and the flawless 178-degree viewing angles. In comparison to its successor, it only has slightly lower peak brightness of 250 nits as opposed to the 300 nits of the UD68 model. It also has thicker bezels, but due to its simplistic yet modern look, it looks awesome nonetheless.

The LG 27UD58 IPS monitor offers plenty of features including AMD FreeSync for stutter-free gameplay and the Screen Split which allows you to divide your screen into different layouts for easier multitasking. It comes with the On-Screen Control feature that helps you adjust OSD (On-Screen Display) settings in a desktop application rather than by OSD buttons. The monitor also has several pre-calibrated picture presets, Picture by Picture mode, and it’s flicker-free. The dynamic action sync feature ensures low input lag adequate for responsive gameplay while the black stabilizer feature increases visibility in dark-themed video games and movies.

There are two HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.2, and the headphones jack. The monitor is tilt-only by -2, 15 degrees, but it’s VESA mount compatible. FreeSync range amounts to 56-61Hz only by default, but you can increase via the custom resolution utility.

Best Budget 4K Monitors 2017

Best Budget 4K Monitors

 

Nowadays, you can get a high-quality 4K monitor for casual multimedia purposes under 350 USD. The LG 24UD58-B is a 24-inch version of the previously mentioned display; it features all the same specifications and features except for the screen size. At such size/resolution, you will have to scale up your interface by 200% in order for text and small items on the desktop to become easily readable. However, the high pixel density will allow for more details and brilliant overall picture quality. If you’re a Microsoft Windows user, make sure to use Windows10 which has a significantly better scaling than Win7. The LG 24UD58-B is one of the cheapest 4K IPS monitors yet it offers a vibrant image quality thanks to its high-quality panel and smooth performance, especially if you have a FreeSync compatible graphics card.

Best 4K Monitors

If you’re in for something larger, the Dell S2817Q is 28-inch display and only $30 extra, but it has a TN panel instead of an IPS which results in a poorer color vibrancy but it’s still satisfactory for everyday use and fluid gameplay. The monitor has a quick 2ms response time for next-to-none ghosting in the fast-paced FPS games and 9W built-in speakers with subwoofer for full multimedia enjoyment. Although its image quality doesn’t have as rich colors as an IPS panel, its price is very appealing for a 28-inch 4K monitor. It features a DisplayPort, a mini-DisplayPort, two USB 3.0 ports, and two HDMI ports with MHL capability. There are color and contrast shifts when the screen is viewed from certain angles (170° horizontally, 160° vertically), but you can tilt the monitor by -5, 21° and match the angles. The Dell S2817Q display is also VESA mount compatible with 100 x 100 holes.

Best 4K Monitors for Everyday Use

Best 4K Monitors for Everyday Use

If you’re looking for an even bigger 4K monitor for everyday use at an affordable price, you should check out the AOC U3277PWQU. Currently available for only $400, it’s the best bang for the buck if you’re looking for a high-quality 32-inch display for general multimedia uses. It features a VA panel that delivers remarkable black tones and a superb relation between darkest and brightest colors thanks to its superior 3,000:1 contrast ratio.

Moreover, you can adjust in any way you’d like as it’s height adjustable by an impressive 180mm; you can also VESA mount it, tilt it by -5, 24 degrees, swivel it to the left and right by 165 degrees, and pivot it by 90 degrees. Connectors are following: four USB ports, an HDMI 2.0 with MHL, a DisplayPort 1.2, a DVI-DL, and a VGA. It has 2x3W speakers and its VA panel ensures 178-degree viewing angles, fast 4ms response time, and 100% sRGB color gamut.

For the same amount of money, you can get a 32-inch 4K monitor with an IPS panel and AMD FreeSync, the QNIX UHD 3216R. This Korean monitor requires some fiddling in the OSD settings in order for it to deliver a proper viewing experience and performance. It’s nothing too complicated and we’ve covered it all in our QNIX UHD3216R review. The monitor offers vibrant colors with 10-bit color support (8-bit + FRC), quick 5ms response time, and plenty of connectivity options including two HDMI 1.4 with MHL, an HDMI 2.0, a VGA, and DisplayPort 1.2a for FreeSync. As the AOC U3277PWQU VA panel monitor is priced the same as the Qnix at the moment, we recommend it due to its overall better performance/image quality. Unless you plan on gaming mainly and have a FreeSync compatible GPU.

Best 4K G-Sync Gaming Monitors 2017

Best 4K Gaming Monitor

If you have a powerful Nvidia graphics card and want to make full use of it, you want a monitor with G-Sync. Unlike AMD’s FreeSync, G-Sync has a much wider range of the dynamic Hz rate (30Hz – 75Hz) and is more effective at reducing screen stuttering, tearing, and decreasing input lag since the dynamic refresh rate works only within the range; it is also more expensive for that reason. Additionally, if your computer rig doesn’t need any help with the performance and everything runs perfectly smooth, you can enable the Ultra Low Motion Blur feature instead of G-Sync technology. This feature considerably decreases the motion blur even in the most fast-paced FPS video games.

Introducing the Acer XB271HK and the ASUS PG27AQ. Both of these 4K G-Sync gaming monitors have nearly identical features and therefore both deserve to share the spot of the best PC gaming monitor in 2017, at least until the 144Hz 4K ones are released. The fact that there’s always a heated debate by monitors’ fans and users on which one is superior only proves that both are good, which we can confirm ourselves. In the end, since the price of these monitors is also almost identical, you can choose between the two on the basis of the design and a few specific features.

First, we’ll go through the features that they share and afterward we’ll get into the differences. Both of these 4K gaming monitors have an IPS panel which delivers stunningly vibrant and accurate colors and 4ms response time speed. The price of both monitors is also pretty much the same, both monitors are expensive but you should consider that the G-Sync contributes to the cost and gives an amazingly fluid gameplay experience in return. You should also take into account that the IPS panel of this monitor also covers 100% of the sRGB color space, allowing semi-professional designers to get their work done as well as enjoy high-quality gaming.

Both monitors have thin bezels ideal for multi-display and highly ergonomic abilities. The Acer XB271HK can be tilted by 40 degrees, height adjusted by 127 millimeters, and pivoted by 90 degrees while the ASUS PG27AQ can tilt by 25 degrees, swivel to the left and right by 60 degrees, pivot by 90, and height adjust by 120 millimeters. As far as connectivity is concerned, both monitors feature one DisplayPort 1.2, and one HDMI 1.4. The HDMI port can only push 30Hz, so in order to have a 60Hz rate, you must use the DisplayPort. The Acer XB271HK has four USB3.0 ports while the ASUS PG27AQ has only two.

Best 4K Gaming Monitor With G-Sync

While Acer has the ability for three customizable gaming presets, ASUS provides you with pre-calibrated gaming presets based on the genre of the game. These presets include modes for FPS, RTS, RPG, and Racing type of games. Both monitors have a feature which allows you to place a custom crosshair overlay in the middle of your screen for better precision in FPS games. Additionally, both monitors have a feature which increases visibility in the dark scenes. Both monitors are flicker-less and have the low blue light filter so that you can play for hours to an end.

In the end, you won’t regret in purchasing either one of these top-tier gaming monitors at 4K resolution. They will both provide you with the smoothest gameplay experience thanks to the G-Sync, low input lag, and quick 4ms response time. Picture quality is brilliant and crisp on both monitors as well. You can make your choice solely on the basis of the design and/or the extra USB ports and ergonomic features. Personally, the overall thinner bezel and the air vent design at the back of the ASUS PG27AQ appeals to me more than the two extra USB ports – but hey, that’s just me!

Although most people deem the 27-inch size as the sweet spot for gaming, 4K resolution is much better utilized on a bigger screen. Introducing the Acer Predator XB321HK. It features all the same features as its little brother, the Acer XB271HK from the Predator series; the only difference being in the screen size as this beautiful beast boasts a 32-inch screen. There’s no doubt that with this monitor, you won’t stop gaming until forced to. When planning to spend this amount of budget on a gaming monitor, many have a hard time choosing between a 4K monitor or an ultra-wide one such as the Acer Predator X34. You can check our article on that topic if you’re having second thoughts between the two, it will help with your decision.

Best 4K Monitor for Competitive Gaming 2017

Best 4K Monitor for Competitive Gaming

Unlike the above-mentioned IPS gaming monitors, the Acer XB280HK features a TN panel which allows for the rapid 1ms response time. Serious competitive players need higher refresh rate monitors because the 4K resolution limits the refresh rate to 60Hz for now. However, if you can’t resist the glorious 4K visuals but still want the best performance possible in competitive games, a 4K TN gaming monitor with G-Sync is your best choice for the ultimate gaming experience at 4K.

The monitor is mainly intended for gaming and hence has only one DisplayPort 1.2. In addition, it has four USB3.0 ports with fast charging capability so that you can easily connect your mobile device as well as the gaming keyboard and mouse controllers. The TN panel monitors may have bad viewing angles, but the Acer XB280HK can be tilted by 40 degrees ensuring that you will be able to match the angle of the screen to your position.

The ASUS MG28UQ is yet another great 4K LED monitor for competitive gaming, priced considerably cheaper than the Acer G-Sync model. It features a TN panel with 1ms response time and FreeSync technology. This 4K gaming monitor offers extensive connectivity with two HDMI 1.4 ports, one HDMI 2.0 port, two USB3.0 ports, and one DisplayPort1.2. Moreover, it has a wide range of ergonomic functionalities, an user-friendly OSD menu which can be navigated with a 5-way joystick, and lastly the ASUS GamePlus feature. This is the same feature present in the ASUS PG27AQ that offers you the ability to set a custom crosshair on the screen as well as a timer and an FPS counter.

Best 4K FreeSync Gaming Monitors

Best 4K FreeSync Gaming Monitors

The LG 27UD68-W is the upgraded version of our pick for the best 4K monitor for the value. It’s still worth its price even for an extra $100 if you’d prefer the more sleek design with ultra-thin bezels. As previously mentioned, it has all the same features and specs excluding a slightly brighter picture.

The ViewSonic XG2700-4K is more gaming oriented, has extra USB ports, full ergonomic support, and boasts the SuperClear IPS panel technology with 5ms response time and the exclusive Low Input Lag mode for a highly responsive gameplay. Just like LG monitor above, the ViewSonic XG2700-4K has a Black Stabilization feature which increases visibility in dark areas of video games. In addition, it offers two exclusive pre-calibrated gaming picture presets including two FPS modes, one RTS, and one MOBA profile. Lastly, it features an extensive connectivity that consists of a DisplayPort 1.2a, a mini-DisplayPort, an HDMI 2.0, two HDMI with MHL, an audio line-out, and four USB3.0 ports.

The ASUS MG24UQ is a smaller brother of the previously mentioned ASUS MG28UQ monitor. Although it’s only 23.6-inches in size, it makes up for it by its beautiful and sharp image quality. This monitor features an IPS panel instead of a TN which results in vibrant and vivid colors but a bit slower response time at 4ms. As far as design and connectivity are concerned, it’s identical to its bigger brother except for the fact that it has no extra USB ports. What’s most interesting about this monitor is, in fact, its size. The 4K resolution on a 24-inch monitor results in an exceptionally clear and sharp image quality.

The Samsung UHD monitors series UE590 consists of two variants, the 24-inch Samsung U24E590D and the 28-inch Samsung U28E590D. We don’t recommend the 24-inch version, as the LG 24UD58 IPS monitor is a much better choice. The Samsung U28E590D, however, is a decent cheaper alternative to the ASUS MG28UG. Both of these monitors offer FreeSync, 1ms response time speed, and TN panel, but the ASUS MG28UG has full ergonomic support, built-in speakers, and extra USB ports. The 4K Samsung PC monitor, the U28E590D, on the other hand, features an HDMI 1.4, an HDMI 2.0, and a DisplayPort 1.2. Moreover, it’s tilt-only by -2, 20 degrees, but it’s VESA mount compatible. Despite its lack of exclusive features, it’s a viable cheaper alternative with smooth a gaming performance.

Best 4K Monitor For Console Gaming 2017

Best 4K Monitor for Console Gaming 2017

The Acer S277HK was one of the very first monitors to implement the HDMI 2.0 port for 60Hz gaming at the 4K resolution. As the 4K gaming consoles such as the PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One S, and the upcoming Xbox Scorpio max out at 60Hz, this monitor is ideal for console gamers. With up to 18Gbps bandwidth available for 4K content transfer at 60Hz and the built-in premium DTS speakers, you’ll have the full multimedia experience available. The beauteous elegant, border-less design complements the stunning image quality this monitor delivers with its IPS panel. Additionally, it has a DVI, DisplayPort, and mini-DisplayPort so that you can keep both your PC and gaming console connected at the same time without the need to swap cables every time you change your device.

Best DCI 4K Monitor
