I currently have a 1440p Acer Predator which I really like.

 

I am now looking to go to 4k and *slightly* bigger at the same time - preferably with HDR and *definitely* with G-Sync.

 

Seems like there are good options at 27" and then it seems to jump straight to 40" + which is waaay too big for my desk setup!

 

I know there are options in the 32" and 34" flavour in the world, but they don't seem to appear on these shores for some reason...

 

 

 

Anyone got any ideas for local options?

Oh and (preferably) not curved either - that just seems weird to me...

G-sync rather than freesync?

 

If freesync then the LGUL950 would fit the (very sizeable) bill.

Many freesync displays now work with g-sync, so dont lock into just g-sync (unless you feel you need the actual module)

Don't discount curved screens either - I got a 27" curved Samsung recently, and initially I was a bit "meh" about it, but now I hardly notice its curved :)

 

Its only when friends come over and go "is that a curved screen ?" that I even remember :)

Indeed - It needs to be “gsync compatible” at minimum I guess, doesn’t need to be a full GSync-chipped unit!

yeah, fair point - I should probably be more open to a curved monitor, especially as the size increases.

 

That said, I don’t see anything much in this space locally either!

just remember if you have already gotten used to the full gsync experience, dropping down to freesync can be slightly jaring.

Is there a discernible difference then in the quality of the frame synchronisation?

Well, you don't notice the curve, does that mean you don't notice a perceived benefit either?

What do you mean by HDR, a true 10 bit panel? AFAIK no G-sync monitors also have this.
