I upgraded in November to a Samsung 32"4k 60hz @ $270 from an older AOC 28" 4k 60hz. The beauty about a 32 or 34" for gaming or viewing content is that the screen almost covers your whole eyesight when sitting at normal desktop distance. That really makes for a much more immersive experience especially when gaming at4k.

Not sure I would want anything larger than 34" for desktop unless it was for engineering or similar business professional usage.

Very nice Monitor(s)

up until a week ago I used a DELL UP2414Q and U2515H on a dual-monitor stand.
Now I upgraded to two of these S2721QS (the cheaper stand version wasn't available anywhere) I can run both over a TB3 Dock to my MacBook Pro 15" in 4k@60 over DP, very comfy. And with macOS HiDPI support I treat them as "6k" displays (looks like 3016x1692) for space but crisp.

Highly recommended!

I currently have U2515H and thinking of buying two of these. How is this compared to U2515H? Considering this is more of a budget range and U2515H is their premium ultrasharp range, is there much of a difference?

As the U2515H has 2560x1440 and the S2721QS is 3840x2160 the resolution alone is more than doubled, with macOS‘ great scaling for HiDPI you can run them from looks like „1920x1080“ all the way up to „3008x1692“ (rendered as 6k) and everything is crisp and smooth.
I do CAD, Simluation, coding and office, so no colour accuracy necessary for me…

I found them for 335€ each at „Saturn“ electronics (GER)

Thanks for your reply. I am hobby photographer, I also work in technology and play games occasionally so basically looking for an all-rounder:)
I think I will go with this one and also keep my U2515H for photo editing.
Currently selling for 373 AUD (€234) in Australia.
Thanks for your advice.

Happy to help, but just for curiosity: Is that „with or without VAT“, as we europeans always see and only care about „with VAT“.
Just beware that these are only monitors, no USB Hubs or Cardreaders integrated (as with the UP2414Q)

VAT is charged as GST (goods and service tax) in Australia, which is standard 10% for everything. This price includes GST.
I have a targus docking station, that supports up to two 4K monitors, so it should be OK.
Thanks again!
