How does this compare to the LG 27UK600-W that's on sale at Best Buy?

Would this be recommended this for photography work?
How important is color accuracy for your photography work?

Different people have different levels of professional requirements for color accuracy.

And do you have color calibration devices?

Some professional grade monitor comes color calibrated. Others not but you can calibrate it yourself with the right tool.

That said color accuracy goes out the window under some settings needed by some. Like some are sensitive to brightness and will turn it down. Doing so impacts accuracy. I think HDR brightness may give vibrant colors but I am not certain how accurate the colors are with HDR.

I can tell you this. When I switch my monitor to 1440p from 4k in open world games, you can 100% tell the difference.

You can't for movies or games that have a close up point of view though.

Absolutely love the additional detail of the 4k for games like black ops 4 blackout mode, red dead, etc etc.
Not for all people and eyes. I upgraded from 1440p IPS to 4K IPS 27" and cannot tell which is better for me.

I could tell the difference with going from TN to IPS more.

Since I turn 40 I find high brightness setting stressful on my eyes more and more. So I have been turning down brightness levels on my monitors. (I used to like really bright monitor before). Doing so probably defeats the purpose of HDR for me.

Thanks! I somehow missed it scrolling through earlier.

I ended up finding a 27uk600 excellent open box for $263 near me, so went with that.

I have the 24in Dell U2415 right now and I calibrate with a basic Spyder5. But then now I see that this has no USB ports maybe I'll wait out for a different one :/

Compare to U2718Q? Is the latter worth $70 more?

U2718Q is slightly brighter and better color. But i think they are basically identical to a average user..
I will definitely go for LG and save the $70 in term of the monitor. But the dell is from costco...does the return policy and warranty + better mount and looking worth $70? Tough choice. I think i am going for U2718Q.

This is probably going to happen to me soon. I'm 39 and stare at a computer screen 14 hrs a day for work, play, home business and keep them at burn your eyeballs out bright levels lol.

I have read a lot about bias lighting and reducing eye strain. I think I may give that a try.

Sucks when you do. That's when features like HDR and color accuracy goes out the window.

Well I guess you "could" still have both ways. It will just cost more -- but if you make a living out of it, it should pay for itself: Have a separate setup with displays set for color-accuracy for when you need that, and limit your hours of using it to reduce stress on eyes. That "workstation" becomes a tool you use when you need to use it. then have separate other station(s) for everything else when you don't need accuracy and HDR but just need to type up work or do research (or code if you do that).

I don't work in a field where I need color accuracy anymore (don't make a living or money off it), so giving that up was easier for me. --- the moment I cut brightness in my monitor by 15%, it feels like my eyes were thanking me.

Depends on what you're using it for. The 600 series that I have is also rated at 5ms, it however has 8ms input lag which is pretty dang good.

What is the difference between this one and the 600 model?

I believe 600 vs 650 difference is you can raise/lower monitor otherwise; same.
