Should I pick up a 4k TV or 4k monitor?

2 months 2 weeks ago #685877 by Cara Wilkins
I'm parked in front of my computer screen for a solid 8-9 hours per day.  So I'm planning on picking up a new monitor, something larger than what I have.   I've noticed I can get IPS panel 42" 4k TV for under a grand.  Or 32" or 34" 4k monitor.  

Would you happen to know how the color accuracy is on these monitors?

I have the 43" LG 4K monitor, and it's okay. Just got a new Dell 27" 4K monitor for work, and it's quite nice and sharp.

I've heard differing stories on TVs, both the lag time and color accuracy. I'm not sure what to believe. But consider monitor size carefully. A 34" might be large enough.

If you are a Mac user, you might want to wait around, looks like some new computing goodies are around the corner.

Monitors were always a better choice. I am
working with a couple of 27" 5k at this time.

Light is free… capturing it is not!
