A 4K monitor is the best option if you need a crispier & rich gaming experience or your work (like editing) demands heavy visual details. I have spent hours analyzing and comparing over 23 4K monitors from Amazon & Flipkart. And in this review, I am going to show you the top 5 of them.
Long story short, the best 4K monitor in India is the BenQ EW3270U. It has an excellent built frameless build, a 32″ IPS display, & 4ms superiors response that gives you an amazing PC & console gaming experience. Editing professionals, I advise LG 27UK850-W – a super color-accurate monitor, and if you are on a budget then go for EL2870U. It’s the cheapest out there.
With that being covered, let’s hop into the details.

Best budget 4K monitor: BenQ EL2870U
- 28″ TN Display
- High Dynamic Range (HDR)
- Auto-Brightness Intelligence
- 1ms response, 60Hz FPS
- AMD Free Sync
- HDMI, DP 1.4
The BenQ EL2870U is the best budget 4K monitor you can get in India at the current time. It has an inbuilt brightness intelligence system that works to keep images visible depending on the lighting in the surrounding area. However, it still does not do well in dark rooms since it has a poor contrast ratio. The monitor can achieve up to a one millisecond response time which is an added advantage for casual gamers. Although the monitor supports HDR, the images and colors will not be as bright and clear as you may expect and it can only display a limited color gamut. Additionally, the monitor has a limited viewing angle range, which implies that it will not be a good replacement for a TV. The low input lag and support for FreeSync makes it a good fit for casual gaming. The BenQ EL2870U monitor comes with a plastic stand but also supports Vesa mounting. It has limited flexibility since you cannot adjust the height or swivel it but you can change the tilt angle
Best 4K for editing: LG 27UK850-W
Graphics and multimedia editors will fall in love with the LG 27-inch UHD IPS monitor. The price for this monitor is higher than that of my top pick in this category, but the features are worth the additional rupees. The monitor’s 3840 X 2160 resolution gives you adequate space to make precise edits on videos, images, and other forms of graphics. With the IPS technology, you will experience high color accuracy levels suitable for image and graphics editing. Again, color bleeding is a thing you will rarely notice if you will be using this monitor. With a 27-inch screen space, you have an adequate working area without needing to scroll or switch panels. And the USB-C port comes handy to connect your MacBook Pro to get your work going or use it as your charging station. Further, it is covered by a 3-years warranty, and you have little to worry about if anything.

Best curved 4K monitor: Samsung LU32R590CW
The curved 32-inch Samsung UHD monitor stands out among other curved 4K monitors owing to the generous features it brings to your studio or office. It has a 60 HZ refresh rate and 4 milliseconds response time, which is one millisecond faster than the LG UHD IPS monitor above. Additionally, the monitor supports up to 1 billion color variations and has a 2500:1 contrast ratio. However, you will not enjoy bright colors and more realistic images and videos that would otherwise be supported by HDR. Also, the brightness levels achieved with this monitor are limited when compared to HDR monitors. But that is not to say you cannot get better since the LG monitor above has full support for HDR although the price may be a little higher. Like with other curved monitors, I do not recommend this Samsung UHD monitor to people doing 3D modeling. As some professionals complaining that it may trick you to think your lines are not straight even when they are. However, with a 16:9 aspect ratio, it is an excellent companion for consoles like Xbox One and PS4 Pro.

Best 4K for movies: Acer Nitro VG280K
- 28″ IPS display

- 2W inbuilt speakers
The Acer Nitro VG280K UHD display comes with a ZeroFrame design allowing you more space to watch the things that matter on your screen. Additionally, the monitor has full support for HDR 10. This implies that the images and videos you see on the screen will look more realistic with more clear colors, high resolution, high brightness, and a wide color gamut. Therefore if you enjoy watching nature documentaries and animated movies like me, you will like the razor-sharp image quality. Additionally, the monitor works with FreeSync, which essentially allows it to work at the same rate with your GPU and thus enjoy a stable FPS. The benefit is that the screen will not stutter or tear while you watch your favorite nature documentary, animation, or playing your favorite console game. Furthermore, the monitor has a straight edge, which works better for movies as compared to curved counterparts. It has high color accuracy and features 300 Nits brightness on the IPS display, making it suitable for use in dark rooms.

Best 32″ 4K monitor for gaming: BenQ EW3270U
- 32″ IPS HDR display
- 95% DCI color gamut
- 4ms response, 60Hz frame rate
- Best for intense gaming
- Eye care display,
Professionals as well as novice gamers will agree that a gaming monitor should display a wide color gamut. This enables you to see things that are creeping towards characters on the screen clearly making the games more realistic and enjoyable. The monitor has support for high dynamic range (HDR) that makes colors sharper and brighter. The BenQ EW3270U monitor has a 60HZ refresh rate and a 4-milliseconds response rate, which works well with PS4 and Xbox one games. Additionally, the monitor has a USB-C interface compatible with MacBook display output. And what if you do not like to have your gaming monitor on your desk? Honestly, that sounds like me, and luckily, the BenQ EW3270U can be mounted on a wall for efficiency and comfort. And for those of us who would spend several hours in front of the screen, eye care technology built into the screen is an added advantage. It allows you to play the PUB-G and GTA 5 for longer durations without experiencing eye discomfort. The monitor uses AMD’s FreeSync to keep the display refresh rate in sync with the frame rate (FPS) of the GPU. This reduces input latency, screen stuttering, and tearing, giving you a seamless play experience.
Who should buy/not buy a 4K monitor?
Before buying a 4K monitor, there are few things you need to know. First, a 4K monitor requires a dedicated graphics card. It doesn’t have to be the most powerful, 1GB should play a 4K video at decent FPS. Additionally, your computer should either have display port 1.4, Thunderbold 2/3, or HDMI 2.0 to avoid the 30Hz bottleneck associated with earlier versions. Also, not a lot of applications are built for 4K as of yet. So the pixel density issues with windows and some third-party applications are very likely. With a heavy number of pixels on a 4K monitor, some applications may look blurry while text may appear small when the DPI scale is increased
You should upgrade to a 4K to future proof your display or if your work demands greater pixel density. Enjoying 4K movies and games are also good reasons. For the rest, the classy 1080p monitor is still gold.
