I've been biding my time waiting to get a monitor that checks off a few desired specifications: 4K, IPS, FreeSync, not comically large, and cheap-ish.
So, LG 27UD59P-B 27" Class 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor (2017 Model) is on sale at BuyDig.com for $275. I'm thinking about pulling the trigger, but there aren't any reviews and that's kind of holding me back a bit.
My current monitor is just fine as a 19" 4:3 1280x1024 via VGA, but it's been getting a bit cramped since forever.
Looks like the LG lacks a DVI connector, and my motherboard (ASRock H97M Anniversary
) has a max resolution of 1920x1200. (Using integrated graphics at the moment via i3-4160, and I refuse to take out a second mortgage.) I haven't been able to determine the revision of the connectors.
Yes, I occasionally play EVE Online, but I spend more time doing actual work. Or reading techreport. Or reddit.
