kangeyan Gangadharan says:

nvidia should allow freesync support with their gpus cause gsync is way too overpriced

SnowBallYT says:

i know 1080p —-> 4k is a big difference but what about 1440p —-> 4k ? when I upgrade from 1440p in the future is it much better or nah ?

Rambler358 says:

Those 4K HDR 144Hz gaming monitors have been pushed back to the first half of 2018, as there have been problems with the manufacturing of the panels.

wang zhen says:

However the fact that it’s not just the price, but the quality control. e.g. I have heard a lot about the light leaking from the corners quite badly on ROG pg348q, despite the selling points, would u pay that much money for a panel with bad light leaking problem?

Rick Torbet says:

Bam! You just talked me out of a 4K monitor. I knew it already, but I needed for you to tell me I wasn’t going to get high FPS at 4K with a 1080ti. So, no need to wait. I’ll jump on the ASUS 279. THANKS!

LCN 1985 says:

I know it’s a bit off subject but can I use a GTX960 with a 4k monitor JUST for video playback? No games. I’m aiming to get a PS4 pro for my gaming habit.

Google gives me mixed results. Thanks

Eugene Sukhoi says:

Can you make a good 4K gaming monitor for consoles ?

InfernexPlays - Gaming & More says:

Kodey Patterson says:

I’d love to make the jump to 4k 144hz but holy shit is that expensive. $2k for a monitor alone not to mention a second 1080ti. Wayyyy to much

Aaron Valas says:

What stand is that for your phone?

Casey Harris says:

These are too small, any 32 or 40 inch monitors

Tamás Gulyás says:

Hi, i7 3770@4.4 and Nvidia 1060 6 GB enough for 4k gaming. Thank you!

Itsme says:

this has got only 60hz not 144hz. I really hope that was some kind of mistake,not clickbait


check out my vid about budget gaming monitor 27 inch for 300usd

Geforce are for n00bs and CHILDREN. I use Quadro to edit 10-bit content says:

The only HDR10 monitor is the Dell. There are 0 others. Any panel above 60Hz is 8+FRC (fake 10-bit). You need 1000 nits, and it should be damn near 100% color accuracy across the board. And none of your monitors have it except for the Dell. asus and acer are scammers and liars, along with every other monitor company. Quantum dot is bullshit too. It does not enhance any damn thing or make colors better. It’s not even true quantum dot.

RAH ZEN says:

I bought the Samsung UHD 4k and the biggest issue is Steam, Photoshop, and many other software apps that don’t scale properly at full 4k. I wasn’t able to find any solutions even windows icons and text appears very tiny, even with DPi scaling at 160% it doesn’t reach the satisfaction level of 1080 scaling resolution. Also downscaling windows to a lower resolution or especially a game looks AWFUL. It looses all its pixelation and becomes blurry. Unlike the ability to scale up or down with 1080 monitors. Now the upside is 4k looks amazing you get details and colors you wouldn’t get normally on a 1080 monitor. Either than that I feel it was a waste of money. Luckily I can still return it. Even with the DP I wasn’t able to get 60 refresh rate. It defaulted to 30 in games. This technology is still too new. I was even displeased with my occulus rift vr headset. Because they don’t consider people who wear glasses. The price I payed for the Samsung 4k seemed like a great deal the tech is just not there. And they don’t favour Nvidia GeForce gtx 1080ti. Instead they favour Radeon cards with some special built in feature I wasn’t able to explore… I wish you could scale up and down without loss and emulate icons and text normally like 1080… /:
