tearing artifacts, can be very distracting, especially when the action drops below 40fps
Nope, again tearing is when FPS > refresh.
Judder is when FPS < refresh.
The cause and effect are completely different.
Basic stuff fellas.

LG UD68, 27 inch 4K freesync, with calibrated sRGB mode, $449. Poor LG no one is taking notice, I have it and it is great! No need to spend $650 for the same monitor.

I don't understand why anyone would buy a 4k monitor less than 40" in size. That is four 20" FHD screens. I just bought a Samsung 50" 4k tv to use as a monitor, which is like four 25" FHD screens. It is absolutely brilliant to have so much screen space with no bezels in the middle.

I can't understand the appeal of 27 inch 4K; seems small for that rez. 27 inches is good for 1440p surround, but once I have the gpu grunt for 4K surround I'd be more interested in 30-32 in monitors.
 
I'm in the same boat, no thanks on a 27 inch 4k monitor. Its not the monitors fault its simply I don't want to deal with any scaling issues in windows or with non native windows applications. When you have scaling issues on a 27 inch 2K monitor at least you can still read the print. If there were not scaling issues at all I would be there in a heartbeat as the text clarity and visuals are pretty.

it doesn't need to appeal to you. technology will continue to progress. higher res panels are good for a lot of things.

Is the LG model IPS?

Not for me, it's like having 2560x1440p on an 11 inch screen, too small to notice.

It seems that the sRGB is becoming an easy target for monitor makers now, nevertheless, it is an awesome product by ViewSonic taking its liberty to calibrate and add freesync in a 4K display for a reasonable price. Yet, instead of calibrating it, they should better put their effort of including a capability to overclock to 75 or 85Hz for future proofing.

Unfortunately, without a faster refresh rate and for almost the price, a Philips 40" with 4K is only 50 dollars away with bragging right spec of 8000:1 contrast ratio and practically the same sRGB accuracy.
