#4: LG UltraFine 5K Display
This 4K monitor has an outstanding color reproduction and uses the DCI-P3 gamut to display a wider range of greens and reds. It features one Thunderbolt 3 port to connect to your computer and three USB-C ports for accessories. Technically, it needs to be connected to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled Mac. It has a webcam and microphones built into the top bezel and speakers, too. The stand has a height-adjustment range of 4.3 inches, can tilt 5 degrees forward or 25 degrees back. Unfortunately, it is not recommended for PC users because it does not have an on-screen display and all settings are controlled through the operating-system software. Ideal for professional video editors!
#3: BenQ PD3200U 32″ 4K Designer Monitor
This 4K monitor is 32-inch in size which is really even bigger. It has four display inputs, a USB hub, grayscale and solid color measurements, and a controller that allows you to switch between computers or picture modes on the fly. It features grayscale tracking DeltaE comes in at 2.77, saturation sweep at 2.02, and the ColorChecker result of accurate 2.08. The six color points of red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, and magenta are on average to a DeltaE of 2.67 with red being a bit oversaturated. Plus, it includes two HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.2 input, a Mini DisplayPort 1.2 input, two downstream USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader, and a headphone jack. Though it is more expensive, it is big enough to clearly read texts on it without scaling it up to a readable size!
#2: Dell P2715Q
This 4K monitor has a great VESA support and stand, has an extraordinary color-accurate and comes with a built-in USB 3.0 hub. Its DeltaE values ranged from 1.114 on our saturation test to 1.224 on ColorChecker to 1.493 on grayscale. A DeltaE value under 1.0 is perfect so it's definitely close to perfection. The grayscales stayed below a DeltaE value of 2.0 that is good enough for print-production work until their very whitest point. Its brightness ranges from 50 cd/m2 at its lowest setting to 425 cd/m2 at its highest. It features one HDMI port, one mini-DisplayPort out, one DisplayPort in and one out (for daisy chaining). It uses DisplayPort 1.2, so the monitor can display 4K resolution at 60 Hz and port uses HDMI 1.4 so it doesn’t have the bandwidth to run at full resolution at 60 Hz. Plus, it has a 3-year limited hardware warranty for buyers like you!
#1: LG 27UD68P-B
This high-end monitor made it to the top of our list for the best 4K monitors you can buy for its thin bezels, 3-way adjustable stand, easy-to-use menus and outstanding grayscale and color measurements. It features a FreeSync adaptive sync that provides better gaming experience if you have an AMD video card. It has an overall DeltaE value of 1.94. An above 80 percent brightness, though, the individual DeltaE values for red, green, and yellow creep up toward 3.0, and yellow hits that number at 100 percent color saturation. The ColorChecker test has a DeltaE of 2.35, and the number of primary and secondary color points was 2.25 while the Grayscale tracking average is 2.31 below at 50 percent brightness. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a USB 3.0 hub and its grayscale tracking and color accuracy aren’t as good compared to other models on the list.
