Dell - 28 Inch LED 4K UHD TN Panel Monitor - Black $299.99

I found this deal on Best Buy, but the monitor has a TN panel. Therefore, if you care more about the resolution, this is a great monitor. But if you want a monitor that has better viewing angles, this is not for you.

It's an okay monitor. 3 stars from customer reviews (on dell.com), 3.5 from PCMag.

Has a good response time for gaming for those interested. (2ms). Personally I'd like it brighter. this is 300 nits, which I think is good, but should be the minimum on all displays that are used in an office or anywhere with light.

Depends on quite a bit.
For example, if you're using a PC in order to view Netflix in 4K you'll need to use the Edge browser and have a 7th or 8th gen processor. (As well as pay for premium Netflix)
If you're using a video card or something, display port or HDMI will work for 4K. Most video cards can't handle something like 4K gaming very well but 4K video no problem.

Almost went to buy one but saw some Amazon reviews that said it wasn't comparable in quality to other dell monitors. Washed out colors, blurry, bad viewing angles - were some of the complaints. think I will wait for an IPS monitor.

Yeah name one card under 500 bucks that can do 4K at 60fps? You need a 1080 or 1080ti. And since the earlier fella was just asking about how to do 4K, I don't think they want to fork up that much for 2 year old cards.

Unless you're referring to watching Netflix in 4K. In that case you're right, the gtx 1060 and above will do that.

Problem is the question I was responding to was so vague that I went for a ballpark summary of his needs.

Why would you need 2 display ports for 4k resolution? I'm confused here. Not saying you're wrong, it's just that I've never used a display port before, so I'm not really familiar with it. I've always hooked up my 4k monitor with HDMI which I think is limited to 60 hz. Would the display port allow for 120 hz? Not that I need it though, as it's just my work monitor. Just curious. Thanks!

Somehow spending $300 and up for a dedicated pc monitor just isn't worth it anymore for the avg PC user

He was wrong. You need only one display port for 4K at 60fps. Saying you need two is just blowing smoke and entirely unhelpful.

Hdmi 1.4 can do 4K 40fps, and 2.0 4K 60 FPS. XatSora doesn't know anything about anything.

Here's a link talking about the differences between HDMI and display port.
