Question Budget Monitor Buying Advice for Photo Editing


Oct 18, 2016
I'm looking for a 2K 27" monitor right now. My budget is flexible but less is always better. More details organised below :)

This will be my second monitor down the line when I eventually get a 4K Monitor. Prices for 4k and the 100% sRGB profile are way too much to ask with my budget now (I think?). If 4K is much better than what I understand compared to 2K then please do inform me. My understanding is that 4K scaling is still weird on my most used apps, (Premiere, Lightroom and Photoshop) and I would need a 32" panel to balance it out? I did a lot of research but I still feel the need to ask you guys out since I am sure that you can help. Thanks in advance.

Budget: $250-$350 up to 400 max

Resolution: 2560 x 1440

Size: 25"-27" (I've tried a 32 inch on my table and It's way too big.)

Aspect Ratio: 16:9

Adaptive Sync: None (I am not a man for games so this doesn't matter much)

Other Features: 100% sRGB coverage (obviously the more the better, but I don't really need Adobe RGB for now by my understanding of things)

Usage: Photo/Video Editing

Thanks for any help, It is much needed.
