Why the negative reviews of this post? All FPS and modern games are best played at 1440p with high refresh rates (100+). Any panel over $200 and under 75hz is worthless for gaming.
My fancy Dell 32'' monitor that i just got says my PS4 is running at 60hz on modernwarfare and i believe that is it's maximum. And with cross play disabled everyone else in the lobby should be at the same performance as i am. So to some of us it does not really matter, unless you want to future proof yourself.

Does this monitor have Portrait mode? ( from the description it doesn't appear so).

Thumbs up for 4k monitor deals!

I have 2 (both Acer), a 32" and a 43". I swap back and forth for WFH, sometimes I use both, sometimes big one for work, etc etc (like if I'm working on an infinity spreadsheet, bigger = better on your eyeballs).

32" is fine and a nice step up from 24" / 27" common sizes. I would rather have 2 x 43" though, but that was not an option when I was shopping and in need.

Gaming wise... look. If you're playing at 4k, then you're topping out at 60hz anyway unless you have a 2080ti supercomputer, or playing stuff like Fortnight that runs fast on anything. All of the "elite gamerz" on here saying you have to have a 144hz monitor are NOT playing at 4k. Maybe they are playing at 1440p. And honestly I am perfectly fine with 4k/60 since I do not play games for a living.

VA vs IPS I cannot really comment on, both of mine are IPS.

Finally the TV vs Monitor argument.... hook up to a cheap 4k TV and fire up the worst infinity spreadsheet you have and see what happens. The cheaper 4k sets are fine for video content and gaming, but usually lack the fine details on tiny text. They are not monitors. Also they don't come with displayport. If all you're gonna do is game though, then sure why not look at the sub $300 40" TCL 4k tvs.

Any monitor can do it via the display settings in windows. Now the real question is, will this stand allow you to rotate into portrait? The answer appears to be no, based on an amazon review I read.

BUT you can ditch the stand and use a VESA stand that rotates.

I used to use 2x27" in portrait mode. Some things like email were great. Other things like huge spreadsheets sucked, because I would have to expand beyond the border and scroll. Personal preference. I tell ya though, I absolutely LOVED have the portrait monitor just for email and skype/teams etc. But it doesn't work for everything.

No you won't have to move your head around, 32'' is not that big. Sure it will be an adjustment if you move from a 20-24'' to a 32'' but you will find that is more than enough. I upgraded from an 27'' AOC to the 32" from a previous thread and there is noticeable difference in image quality especially in gaming but i don't use any of the advanced features it offers, PS4 maxes out at 60htz and my work laptop is well just for work. But it does give me more room for working with hundreds of rows of columns in excel. We are also talking about a viewing distance of 2-3 feet away. If your vision is bad enough that you are trying to view from a distance of inches from the screen, than anything over 20'' will be too large for you. But you already know that.
I do have to get inches from it. That is the problem. And the reason i don't know how bad it is... is because my current one is 4:3 and now you almost solely find 16:9 so it's harder to judge. For 4:3 20 inches is almost exactly the ebst size. For 16:9 I am guessing 24 or 27 would be.

Also my theory was that "maybe" with a bigger size, I could get a bit farther away from it. My vision is really weirds/tricky, though, so who knows... For a 55 inch tv I still have to get close to read some of the words on it, for instance. But I'm, sure the bigger one is, I don't have to get quite as close... I sit farther when watching movies depending on tv size.

And here is the next problem... I can't find ANY 4k monitor under 32 inches with a VA panel. And for those who will say well if you can't see good you aren't going to see a diff in 4k... I still want to get one and with me sitting so close, most likely I'd still see the better crispness and some more detail.

Is this more similar to the 32ud59 or the ud99. I currently have one of each. I may want to get a third one and I like LGs

also has anyone tried enabling Gsync in this one . how good is it?

how good is HDR in this one. it is pretty good on the ud 99.

lol. yet there are many articles comparing gpus for gaming with 4k resolution and people have already said on here countless times that some games work well with the best settings and in 4k. So if it's "not a thing" then a lot of people are lying about playing games in 4k.
Yes 4k gaming exist. You're missing the point, I keep saying the word "competitive". Look up what competitive gamers use. It wouldn't be a resolution in 4k. If you want a slight edge you will be using a 1080p or 1440p resolution to maximize your fps.

Publications yes review 4k modes because it's in the game. Later not sooner 4k will become the standard when technologies catch.

Edit.
If you downvote this post you obviously don't have a clue about what PC gamers use.

I'm not talking about competitively, though. I never said I want to be able to game in 4k and have an edge against someone with lower res. I am just taking into account which gpu will allow for decent 4k gaming IN CASE I want to do any or there could always be some games where you could be competitive, I assume.

If you have to get within licking range to see/read the screen... 4k is likely wasted on your vision. But you can get 1080p 32" monitors for a lot cheaper than this, or just go for a 40"+ HDTV. $200ish

I worked with a guy who had a degenerative macular issue and he did like you mentioned, would have to get within an inch or 2 of the monitor to read things even at huge resolutions.

So on these 4K 60 hz monitors, can you turn it down to 2k or 1080p and get 120 hz? Like is 60 hz the highest it goes at 4k, but it can go higher at lower res?

What is the point of a casual-use monitor having wide color? It probably looks awful on Windows 10.

Curious what your set up is for both monitors - Side by side, Mounted or not, display from multiple sources? I was originally thinking of getting another 32" to go with my 32" HP until I came across the Dell Ultrasharp 42" deal. I don't have a big enough desk to place two 32" monitors so it would have to have a gas spring mount. I haven't come across an affordable mount that can support 42-43" monitors so my plan was to get rid of the 32" HP and only use a 42".
I also have an hdmi switch to toggle between a work laptop and desktop. I don't know if bigger monitors allow you to have multiple sources combined on a single screen.
