A cheap 4K monitor for gaming and general use

Key features:
  • 28-inch, 3,840 x 2,160 TN-based panel
  • DisplayPort 1.2 support/60Hz at 4K resolution
  • Flicker-free backlight

If you're a serious PC gamer with a gaming rig to match, you've no doubt put some thought into 'going 4K'. If that sounds like you, the Asus PB287Q should be your monitor of choice. This is among the first TN-based 4K monitors and it impresses thanks to its unfussy design, good basic image quality and outstandingly low 10.6ms input lag.

There are some issues with this monitor, however. Its vertical viewing angle is poor and the OSD controls are rather fussy, but overall it's the best 'cheap' 4K monitor we've seen so far. Just be aware that if you don't really need 4K then this is an extravagance; you can buy outstanding, pro-grade QHD monitors like the Viewsonic VP2772 for the same price.

Price: £379
