Yea this family line of monitors are a hit or miss, I got the 1440p version and had to go through 3 of them before I settled on one.

What does tn mean?
"A twisted nematic (TN) display is a common type of liquid-crystal display ( LCD ) that consists of a substance called a nematic liquid crystal that is confined between two plates of polarized glass." Ppl usually like VA or IPS panels more. IPS for accurate colors, VA for deep blacks.. TN panels usually have really low lag time. But VA panels can have 1ms lag times as well. Personally, I've never seen an IPS panel with 1ms lag. But, I also don't care that much... If it's 5 or 2 or 1... I can't tell the difference, and I'm not a competitive gamer.

edit: if the lag time goes up into the 40's and 50's like some TV's and projectors, I can tell. that's when it matters to me

I find 144 Hz a lot easier on the eye and have significantly less micro stutter when scrolling through long documents and even just web pages.

The difference is akin to 60 Hz vs 120 Hz iPad pros and is very noticeable to me. You might find it funny, but I can see the difference in everyday applications.

I'm not expecting people using some crappy mice skipping a block at a time with a 60 Hz panel to understand.

Why is that funny? A higher refresh rate is easier on the eyes when moving objects or scrolling through text. It's probably even easier on the eyes when posting dumbass comments such as yours.
60 HZ too low for productivity... on a 4k monitor... have you seen higher HZ on a 4k monitor for less than a thousand? They hardly exist, to begin with...

I guess I should elaborate my point better to not get downvoted to hell.

For gaming - you have a 4K monitor with very low refresh rate. 60Hz isn't ideal and 4K is very taxing on your hardware.

For productivity - you have TN panel with inferior color accuracy, a high PPI count 4K panel in 28" size that is hardly worthwhile unless you're sitting close and squinting. That aside, 60Hz and 4K = lag and stutter.

This panel is stuck at a very awkward position. It sucks for gaming and it sucks for work. Hence the low price.

You're better off getting a 30" or bigger IPS panel at 4K or a 144Hz QHD monitor at 27/28".

I have used far more monitors than average Slickdealers and I'm not some 144Hz panel elitist. I simply recommend what I think is best.
