3 Best 4K Monitors [TL;DR]:
- Editor’s Pick: LG 27UD68P-B – both have sRGB 99% and FreeSync technology, delivers maximum graphic output at a proper price.
- Dell P2415Q | 24 Ultra HD 4K Monitor – sRGB 99%, can pivot and swivel to an angle that you are comfortable with.

We are now entering a new stage in the viewing era of our times. Around a decade ago, all of us were in awe when the Blu-Ray went and drove the resolution wars wild.
That technology offered 1080p full high-definition (HD) right to our screens, if our monitors or TVs are capable of that resolution at that time. And that started what seemed to be a “resolution war” that raised the bar to a new standard today: 4k Ultra HD.
4k resolution, in our geek terms is comprised of 4096 × 2160 on movie standards, and 3840 x 2160 in the fields of digital TV and digital cinematography.
Having 4k resolution literally brings something you are watching or playing “pop” out to life. It’s just THAT good.
In these ultra-modern times, 4k monitors are out there by the dozen. But do you know which ones are the best ones worth your money?
Well, we might help in this aspect, as we present to you three of the best 4k monitors out there which are definitely worth every peso you spend on it.
Price range: as low as PHP 26,778 (just swim around Amazon)
- Ultra HD 4K IPS Display
- New Cinema Screen
- sRGB Over 99%
- Color Calibrated
- AMD FreeSync™ Technology
This is arguably the best 4k monitor out there. It’s built in FreeSync technology allows gamers to play any high-end game without all the messy screen tears and stutters.
These stutters are from the difference between your GPU’s refresh rate versus your monitor’s refresh rate. FreeSync just gets rid of that problem automatically.
In terms of photo and video editing, the LF 27UD68P-B offers sRGB over 99%, which allows no gaps in color space. Truly, this is the best 4k monitor out there.
Dell P2415Q | 24 Ultra HD 4K Monitor
Price range: Php 30,000 – Php 40,000
- The included stand enables tilt (5° forward or 21° backward), pivot, swivel and even provides built-in cable-management.
- Customize your viewing experience with a height-adjustable stand, or save desktop space by detaching the stand for wall mounting with a VESA-compatible 100mm x 100mm wall mount kit. (Wall mounting equipment sold separately.)
Also rocking the sRGB 99% quality, the Dell P2415Q monitor also is a big contender in the 4k monitor scene.
What separates it from the other monitors, is its ability to tilts, pivot, and swivel into a position that is most comfortable to you. Are you feeling a bit lazy?
Just sit on a lower end of your gaming chair and adjust the monitor so you’d still be able to see everything. It’s just a good quality-of-life improvement, something we would expect from Dell, nonetheless.
Samsung 28″ UE590 UHD Monitor
Price Range: as low as Php 22, 850
- Eye Saver Mode
Eye Saver Mode optimizes your viewing comfort by reducing blue light emissions and flickers at the touch of a button.
Read documents, play games, watch movies and edit photos for longer periods of time, and experience a more comfortable, more pleasing view, without worrying about eye strain or fatigue.
It also has the FreeSync technology that the LG monitor above has, with a 1ms response time, meaning the pictures and graphics refresh almost instantly.
Also, the key here is its Eye Saver Mode, which lets you stare at your monitor longer by minimizing harmful blue light emissions that strains the eye. The Samsung UE590 really does bear the brand Samsung with pride.
