    Hello All,

    I am looking to get a used monitor, i am in Canada so prices are always crap compared to the U.S

    By no means am i a super duper high quality IPS panel need to have the best.

    There are 2 I am looking at that came up, a Samsung 4k for $300 and a BenQ 1440p for $200..

    I do game a little but usually in window mode anyways, Team Fortress 2, BF1, world of tanks Civ series with a RX 580 8g and a i5 8600.

    I do often have many windows open why the Samsung is more appealing but reviews are mixed on overall quality since it is a low end 4k TN panel?

    Would you spend $100 more for the 28" 4k or get the 27" BenQ?

    Beleive this is the U28E590D model which goes for $399 new (https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX59871)

    BenQ - Seller says couple months old and still has receipt, goes for $279 new (https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX67524)

    Well, I recently bought a B-Stock monitor from CDW, and was 100% happy with the purchase experience, and the monitor. CDW operates in Canadia, as well as the US.
