4K is one of those things that once you’ve used it (or seen it, in this case), you can’t go back to what you used (or looked at before). Not without crying at least. 4K packs quadruple the resolution of plain old HD making images SUPER sharp. That makes 4K monitors ideal for a variety of people including designers, gamers, video editors and animators (just to name a few).
But don’t think that just because 4K is hot right now that it’s out of your price range. As you look over my picks for the best UHD (Ultra-High Definition — aka 4K) computer monitors for Mac and PC users I think you’ll be really pleasantly surprised by the prices! The last monitor I list packs in a ton of top-notch features and only costs about $400. Of course things can get pricier if you demand unsurpassed performance (and there are several monitors like that listed here as well).
Samsung U32D970Q 32″ 4K UHD Monitor
Unlike it’s performance, the Samsung U32D970Q has rather humble looks. That’s because it doesn’t need a crazy design to impress. Aside from it’s 4K chops and enormous size, this monitor is displays incredibly accurate colors making it perfect for designers. Additionally, this monitor has a killer white balance correction which means no more nasty warms or overly cool pictures. Before shipping it goes through a meticulous pre-calibration process, which ensures your monitor will live up to the hype, and the ergonomic design is better for you than some other monitors.
Acer S7 27″4K UHD Monitor
The Acer S7 may not be as large — physically (although it’s plenty big) — as some of the other monitors listed here, but it’s near frameless design (with asymmetric base) is bigger and bolder by a mile. If you value a creative working environment as well as performance, this may be the right monitor for you. One thing I like about this monitor is how easy it is on your eyes: the flicker-less, low-dimming, anti-glare and blue light-filtering technologies all work together to reduce eye strain. But perhaps the best thing about this monitor is it’s price: it’s more than half the price of several of the other monitors listed here!
