cheapest 4k monitor?


Other reviews said it was flimsy, I can't say I agree + I'm using a dual mount so I can't comment on the quality of the stand. +Used an Acer for 9 years and loved it before this, I'm kinda turned off now ++Other Other thought, I have premier and...

well it's 4k. looks really good

First unit i bought had a dead pixel in the middle left, and one in the middle right of the screen, and some really uneven IPS glow creeping out of one corner. so I RMA'd it no problem, Replacement unit has only one dead pixel, in the dead center of...

Very Nice


What can I really say, it's a 4K monitor, and has wonderful color and clarity.

Sound is less than stellar, but it is a monitor after all. Didn't buy it for the built in speakers. Plugged our sound system into it and have it running through an EQ, so all is good at the end of the day.

Fantastic Picture at Fantastic Price


Had to RMA first one I got due to bad backlight bleed in lower left corner. Newegg was very quick with processing the RMA and getting the replacement shipped to me.

True 60hz 4k image is phenomenal. Paired this with ASUS ROG MATRIX GTX 980 Ti and gaming has never looked better.

Will make your old monitor look terrible.

Great price for a 4K display


Amazing 4K picture and detail. I still think this is one of the most affordable 4K monitors on the market right now. Although it lacks the bells and whistles some other monitors have (such as USB hubs, headphone ports, etc.), the amount you pay for...

- Great color saturation and amazing 4K detail, one of the best 4K monitors I've seen on the market. - Great for gaming (see below for ghosting and input lag) - Absolutely no dead pixels. - Minimal backlight bleed (see other thoughts). - High pixel...

Unfortunately, one of my monitors had a crazy backlight bleed in the bottom left corner. When I tapped that corner to see if I could "snap" the panel back, it made a clicking noise suggesting the panel wasn't attached correctly in that corner. I tried...

Great price Great picture


I would not purchase this again but I also don't know if other low price 4K monitors have these issues to.

No dead pixels, came with all cables needed

There is ghosting if you pay real close attention but if you are not looking for it you won't notice. Maybe there will be a firmware update to take care of it. I am using my display port on my XFX 290X video card and it does have some problems with...

ALMOST Perfect


The monitor is great, and 4k is fantastic. Honestly I can easily forgive the flimsy build because it's the cheapest 4k monitor on the market (right now). However, I cannot forgive dead pixels. You can't miss dead pixels during Quality Assurance, so...

Beautiful screen Bright colors Great viewing range Tilt

Feels flimsy 2 dead pixels

HDMI 2.0 is not working or problematic.

This monitor produces absolutely beautiful colors when you turn up your NVIDIA settings and saturation the the red, green, blue, and the other three colors to 100. Displayport included in the box works like a charm for me gettings Ultra HD @ 60hz. HDMI...

It's not necessarily however it is fair to note that Windows 7 scales really bad at this resolution and appears very small as well as some games.

Update to previous review.


Have experienced some issues with the display port cable included with this monitor.Sometimes it will not display anything on first boot and requires a reset. Other times AMD Control Center will tell me that it has detected an issue with the connection...

Cable included is a little iffy.
