    Advice Need new monitor [x2] 4k or?

    Hi Guys,

    My two LG monitors are on their way out; both are displaying dead pixels. So it will be time for me to upgrade soon!

    Currently I am using Two LG IPS231P-BN.


    I am looking for equivalent or a 4k monitor[s]. I am unsure if two 4k monitors is a wise choice! My uses are:

    Film/TV,
    Graphics/Video editing
    Gaming

    What would you recommend?

    No set budget.

    Thanks

    If you want to game on a 4k monitor you will need to own a powerful graphics card. From what I've read, people have had problems with windows font sizes & scaling issues (although Windows 10 might solve some of those issues). That said, the Iiyama 28" B2888UHSU is fairly cheap (if you want to buy two) & has had some decent reviews.

    It might be worth looking at 3440x1440 monitors. I bought a AOC U3477PQU (to replace my Eyefinity set up) last week and I was very impressed with it - less so now, now that it has developed a couple of dead pixels.

    the monitor I got developed a line of unlit pixels right across the whole screen, just over a year after purchase, I got it replaced with a recon, which i'm still using now

    or if you want to put yourself into debt, get a couple of these

    I'm going to go the 21:9 route. Any suggestions?
