Best 4K UHD Monitor for PS4 Pro - Buyer's Guide

Last updated on Nov 14. 2017

**Fast points **
PS4 Pro supports HDR10
1440p monitor image will get downscaled
HDMI 2.0a/b Port is needed for HDR content
HDMI 1.4 supports 4K@30HZ
HDMI 1.4 2160p at 30hz is not supported by the PS4 Pro now(discont. after 4.0.5 update)
HDMI 2.0 Supports 4k @ 60HZ
Getting Monitor with more than @60HZ is pointless cause PS4 and PS4 pro won't go beyond that FPS and its's capped @60HZ
Many people are asking me what's the best monitor for PS4 Pro after reading the TV buying guide. The straight answer is 'none.' Nonsense! You are lying. No, I'm not! Apparently, no single monitor is consumer ready with HDR except some prototypes floating around. I'll attach it to the bottom to check.The highlight of PS4 Pro is HDR and 4K output (native and upscaling). To enjoy PS4 pro games with its maximum quality, you need an HDR compatible monitor.I wish a lot of them would be ready in 2017 with PS4 Pro compatible tag.unfortunately; that won't happening soon.So what to do next? You can wait, buy a 4k hdr tv or buy a monitor anyway and later upgrade to HDR monitor when it arrives.
So if you are going with final option, you should be aware of these things

Before you buy
You should know that PS4 Pro doesn't support 1440p and the image will be downscaled to 1080p and look worst. So buying a 1444p monitor is futile. A fully capable HDR10  monitor release is far far away. The reason is, the technology is relatively new and can currently be implemented only in large screen (40"+ display) and need zonal control of backlight which makes them bulky and expensive.
The True HDR theory
The True HDR  requires a very large color gamut (Rec. 2020), contrast ratio, and also maximum luminescence being able to output ~350 cd/m2 max. In reality, it should be able to produce extremely bright and dim element at the same time. OLED' are capable of that. But due to potential degradation and input lag issues of OLED panel, I think manufacturers don't want to go that way. On the other half, QLED is promising.
PS4 Pro Display Chart

If you still want to get a monitor for PS4 Pro, you should look at these monitors depending on the budget although I won't recommend getting a monitor for PS4 Pro now. I'll add HDR compatible monitors when it's available here.

And here's a video showing HDR monitor vs Non HDR monitor

What's in the news?

Jan 5   : HDR monitors announced at CES 2017
Jan 3   : Dell announced new 27" HDR10 monitor but its Quad HD resolution (2560 x 1440). So its only good for PC and not good for PS4 pro.
Dec 20: I just came across a reddit thread by zanshunmu. 4k modes not being supported on HDMI 1.4 4k monitors and TVs is a software bug in the PS4 Pro's system software.In spite of the fact that it DID work prior to 4.0.5, Playstation support is now saying that HDMI 1.4 2160p at 30hz is not supported by the PS4 Pro
Dec 14:LG is going to reveal 32UD99 4K IPS UHD monitor with HDR and usb -c at CES 2017. More about it is here http://www.anandtech.com/show/10916/lg-announces-32ud99-4k-ips-display-with-95-dcip3-hdr-and-usbc.

  4. what would be better between Samsung U28E590D 28" vs ASUS MG24UQ 23.6" I read somewhere that the samsung could only do 30hz with ps4 pro? I don't see why its a 60hz monitor?.... Also I will be sitting roughly 2' away from the monitor screen so im unsure about what screen size would be best suitable?

    1. They pretty much around the same except panel. U28E590D uses TN panel. MG24UQ uses IPS panel. I take IPS panel over TN panel for great color reproduction. Both are 4K, 3840 X 2160 Resolution (UHD), 60Hz (HDMI 2.0).It should work without any problem. can u link where you read samsung could only do 30hz with ps4 pro?. ~23/24" is more comfortable in that distance

    2. http://www.144hzmonitors.com/other/best-monitor-ps4-xbox-one/

      3/4 of the way down the page there's a headline "Samsung U28E590D: 28-inch 4K Monitor for PS4 Pro and Xbox One S" Its the last paragraph in the catagory. "The Samsung U28E590D works at 30Hz @ 4K resolution. If you want 60Hz, which we highly recommend by the way, you should consider the LG 27UD68, which is the best 4K 60Hz monitor for PS4 Pro since it features a HDMI 2.0 port."

    4. I don't suppose you could give me some input on a gaming headset? lol i know its off topic and all... But so far between the ASTRO A40TR with Mixamp Pro Or the new gen of ASTRO A50... or anything else that's better that you could recommend? Here's the link to the astro site for PS4 Headphones... http://www.astrogaming.com/shop/headsets/playstation-4/

    5. Not sure why. I pulled the official manual it says HDMI port 2 is 4k 60HZ.

    6. After searching a lot i think Astro A50 (4th gen) is a little better.Still the mic quality is not good (better than previous gen)for the price. If you have any other wireless device in the room it may interfere with A50 as well.
      There's new Sony Platinum Wireless Headset coming in January.May be its good to wait to see what it's offer.

      Delete
    7. In Full Effect do you know what the differences are between the a40tr with mix amp pro and the a50s? besides obviously the a50s are wireless...

      I find the a50s make people sound distant, tin canny, or nasallly when they talk... I've listened to a few demos now..

      I'm just not 100% sold on the a50s yet...
      1) The mic seems to be hit or miss good or bad.

      2) The mix amp is built into the headphones; so you dont have a visual on what your adjusting on your headphones unless you take them off... or youll be there having to feel up your ear pieces to make adjustments while in game at times....

      3) I heard that the placement of the headphones on the charging bade is finicky.

      4) Is it as responsive as if it were hard wired like the a40tr?

      5) There's the potential for interference since it is wireless...

      6) I've read that some people are getting a ringing noise of some sort on the right ear piece... not sure if it's common or not...

      7) It's just a matter of time before the headphones hold less and less of a charge.

      That's all I really have right now for some concerns.. my biggest are the apparent mic issues and I seriously dislike how the mix amp is built into the headphones and you can't visually see what you're doing unless you take them off...

      Delete
    8. 1) yes
      2) yes
      3) yes,if headset isn't seated properly.I think that's a deign problem
      4) yes
      5) yes
      6) it could happen with any headset not just A50. Its the interference cause within or external components.Since ther's no cables connected to the headset there won't be any buzzing i guess
      7) yes. after many charge cycles, it'll hold less and less charge just like any other devices
      8) mic isn't replaceable and mic quality is an issue. it sounds like a bit robotic and the sound going through a lot of compression already during the game.

      If you dislike A50 then its its better go with A40tr mix pro unless you are not considering separate headphone and mic setup.

      Delete
    9. I've got the a40 tr mixamp. With a ps4 pro. And psn chat sounds like a robot at times. Anyone heard of this. I've also got TB elite pro headset I did have the audio tac. Had the same problem so sent the tac back. I want to use the elite pro with the astro mix amp. But again I sound like a robot. Does anyone think that there's problems with ps4 pro optical sound??

      You've to turn on the LG deep color option on in the settings, so it allows you to set 4k resolution at 24hz and 50hz.

  12. Not 4K, but Dell annonced two HDR10 + Freesync support 1080p series monitors at CES 2017, Infinity Edge Design. Not sure how HDR10 would look in 1080p on a PS4 Pro?

    S2418HX MSRP $290
    S2718HX MSRP $380

    I read they will be available February 2017.

    I'm not holding much hope for the new LG 4K with HDR10 to be wallet friendly, I suspect this will be a $1K+ range monitor, as the Acer and Asus just announced are in the $2K range. I may settle for one of the Dells listed above to get the HDR10 value.

    Replies
    1. Cool.I'll check the dell models
      Out of the announced 4k monitors LG ud99 is only is the only one that properly supports and works with ps4 pro i guess. Acer and ASUS one requires nvidia graphics card for hdr to get it work. they call it gysnc hdr and won't support hdr via hdmi port and only support via display port.

      Delete
    2. The LG is what I have my eyes on, seems perfect for the PS4 Pro but I need to see some more specs/reviews and input lag test along with the price, as I'm using an older 24" Asus 1080p monitor at the moment, passing on a 4K HDR10 TV since I prefer gaming on a Monitor.

      Delete
  13. Instead of waiting for an HDR10 compatible monitor (presuming the new LG 32" will be out of my price range) I bought the LG 27U68-P at Fry's today, not on the list but identical to the -W model, only difference is the -W has a White back and the -P has a Piano Black back. I have 30 days to return it, but so far so good, no HDR but it's better than 1080p by leaps and bounds.

    Noticed it wasn't on the list, also the 27UD88-W is identical aside from the USB-C option and USB ports, which bumps up the MSRP $200 any PS4 Pro gamer may not need these features?

    The 27UD58-B doesn't use a power brick, has a built in power supply among other differences like NTSC 72% color gamut vs sRGB 99% for the 27UD68, not as edgeless as the 27U68 models either and etc. Not sure if the $50 difference is worth it as I Fry's didn't have it in stock to compare?

    Cheers!

    1. Correction the color gamut is identical, just a different spec callout that I missed.

      Brightness however is higher on the 27U68-P 350 cd/m2 vs 250 cd/m2.

      Delete
    2. The listed based on compatibility and monitors that works with ps4 pro. I didn't looked further into specific features. There are many monitor that has same connectivity but won't detect, black screen,downscale and firmware issues with ps4 pro.
      If using PC or macs along with consoles at the same time 27UD88-W 'll be useful, if not then not worth it.That 72% of NTSC ~= sRGB 99% color space.
      27UD68 design looks way cooler with edgeless design. I'll add 27UD68-p model

      Delete
    3. I should note that out of the box the monitor didn't auto switch to 2160p, wasn't till I saw a settings tutorial online was I able to figure it out, had to turn on "HDMI Ultra HD Deep Color” in the monitor display settings and it's now 2160p@60Hz, appears to be a common problem with many and the PS4 Pro.

      Delete
    4. Yes. Need to turn on LG deep color option to get it work 2160p. Good luck with set!

  14. Guys is HDR really that good? I kinda just want to go ahead with the asus mg24uq for my ps4 pro. Am i right in saying that an eventual 24" monitor with HDR is a ways off? And even if it wasnt, would cost a bomb?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes. if everything is aligned perfectly (10bit panel+ wide colour gamut support+ peak brightness+ dynamic meta data...) HDR does have high visual impact. cost is the downside. 3 times higher than premium displays. Price will come down eventually. It'll take some time.better pick HDR display that time.

      Delete
    2. I read a mixed bag or reviews on HDR with respect to PS4 games, seems it's inconsistent and often appears washed out, but it could be the display at the end of the day in some instances. Not sure if it takes $1K or 2K TV to get the best out of it, if so it's too much for me to spend right now.

      I opted for a 27" 4K Monitor vs a 24" due to a lot of reviews I read that stated you need 27" or greater to get any benefits from 4K, the upcoming LG 32" with HDR10 would be ideal, but it will probably cost $1300+ based on current 32" monitors in their line up.

      I went from a older 24" Asus 1080p gaming monitor to the LG 27U68-P and the quality is amazing even without HDR it's night and day. I considered getting a newer 24" 1080P monitor to hold me off since mine was 2009 era, CCFL backlit Gaming Monitor but realized I would not be getting much visual benefits.

      Delete
    3. Developers are adding some textures and calling it HDR for some reason in ps4 games. yeah, for 4k 27" is minimum needed unless sitting close like 2 feet.LG 32d99 price will be very high.Demand is high.Artists and designer's also looking for such monitor.

    1. I think PS4 pro won't work properly with that two monitors
      1. Image will get downscale because of 1440P resolution
      2. Its still not clear the HDR functionality of GSync- HDR works without Nvidia GPU or not
      3. Gsync definitely won't support on PS4 pro
      4. There's no mention of HDR support over HDMI, most probably HDR supported only through Display port

      Delete
    2. So, for a PS4 Pro you need to have 2160p to have the picture quality that the system deserves? Fair enough.

      What VA panel monitor would you suggest? I'm very much in favor of great visuals but high response time isn't required; a 6 ms time is satisfactory. Quantum dot and HDR are very much in the forefront of my search. So, is bezel-less type monitors for the multi-monitor approach. Not required of course. Just no IPS and must do the PS4 Pro justice.

    3. I think i won't be able to find any monitor based on your criteria(4K+HDR+VA). That combo is not available right now.Of the announced (upcoming) and released HDR monitors so far, only LG32UD99 is working with PS4 pro but that one also have number of problems such as not enough brightness to show HDR images and crushed black.
      There's Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ (IPS)(upcoming) but ASUS has stated that the panel will offer support for HDR10. But still need clarification regarding it works or not with PS4 pro. Because HDR support through HDMI is not confirmed.

    4. Forgot, There's Acer Predator X27 with (VA panel+4K+HDR). It does have HDMI 2.0 but not sure HDR supported through HDMI 2.0.There's no information regarding price and release date

    1. I read your other 2 comments :) At the moment the best you can get that works with PS4 pro is ASUS MG28UQ (low input lag & faster response time). When i looked at the other Higher end models with low input lag and response time, they comes with HDMI 1.4, and 144hz refresh rate which is not supported by PS4 pro. I'll check if i missed anything.

    2. Thank you so much for the help. I actually saw the Asus MG28UQ yesterday at Best Buy for 599$. I almost bought it but some guy told me that BENQ is better. Do you know anything about BENQ for the PS4 Pro? Now I'm debating between BENQ and ASUS. The Asus is easier as I can just drive to best buy and buy it but I don't mind ordering online either.

Kind of interested in that one now, since the Asus PG27UQ, the Acer Predator X27 and Acer Predator XB272-HDR (they all share the AU Optronics M270QAN02.2 AHVA IPS panel) have been delayed to 2018.

  41. I've got a standard PS4 and am considering purchasing a second PS4. I'm considering the PS4 Pro but after reading all this (great thread btw) I'm on the fence and had some questions.

    1. Right now, based on what I've read and can tell the LG27UD68P seems like the best choice to match with the PRO. It's the one I'm currently leading toward, but if comparable priced monitors with HDR are coming out soon (ie between now and say Feb. 2018) should I just wait?

    2. Is the above LG monitor with 4K better than say the Dell Series S2718H that sports HDR: https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Screen-LED-Lit-Monitor-S2718H/dp/B06XYPPCZX/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1503095663&sr=8-1&keywords=S2718HX

    3. Whatever I get is going on a desk that I sit at, so using a 4K television is out the window since my understanding is the minimum recommendation is a 60".

    I've got a 1080P 60HZ BENQ gaming monitor right now that I use with my standard PS4, so if new monitors are coming out soon that support HDR for a reasonable price (ie around what we see with that LG in #1) then I don't mind waiting.

    Thoughts or advice?

    Thanks!

    1. 1. Comparable monitor with HDR are LG 32UD99 which is going to be relased soon and next up is VP2785-4k which announced 2 days ago. 32UD99 is pseudo hdr (8bit panel). VP2785 does pass HDR theory theoretically. But it doesn't reach the industry standard 1000nits. But these are priced way higher and may not worth. The real titans, the ones with true 10bit panel + 1000nits release is now delayed to 2018. They rumored to start at the price of $2K+
      2. Yes. The Dell Series S2718H does pseudo hdr. again the panel is 8 bit and not enough brightness to pass HDR theory (250nits only)
      3. 60" does look good in big room. But 49" is a good start. At the moment over 15+ hdr monitor announced. i'm maintains a HDR supported Monitors list with all the spec here. All the announced HDR monitors so far are included.I'm constantly updating this list as soon as get notified. I'm thinking of splitting the table into necessary categories.

    2. Thanks for the reply. In an earlier post you said the 32UD99 was bombing. Has that changed at all? 2K is way outside my budget so I guess I'll keep looking at the LG. Nice job on the thread!

      Delete
    3. yes. 32UD99 is the closest monitor with 'HDR' compared to LG27UD68P. But trade offs are everywhere. latency, crushed black,8 bit panel, 550 nits...

      Delete
  42. Yeah... at the moment, buying a ps4 pro with HDR in mind is only worth it on 4k hdr premium tv's like the OLEDs from LG. As stated before, HDR gaming on PC will take a while/long time to mature, simply because it's a niche. It is kind of a predicament though for people who only want to use one monitor, like me. If only the ps4 (pro) supported more resolution sizes, like 1440p. That would be the dream.

    1. HDR monitors are really expensive and its the top end monitor at now. I think it'll take at least 2 years (may be in 2020) for price to fall into current 4k monitors price. But HDR tv are getting cheaper but not the OLED TVs.

  44. First off great website and thanks for all the informative replies. I've always gamed on a monitor and have had my trusty BenQ 1080p gaming monitor for many years. I just picked up a PS4 Pro and was going to stick with 1080p but the techy in me want's to utilise the Pro in all it's glory.

    I would love to get a HDR monitor when they are available but I know they will be extremely expensive so for now happy to settle for a normal 4k monitor.

    It looks like the choice is between the LG 27UD68 and Asus MG28UQ. Both have excellent reviews but I can't decide between the 2. The LG is IPS so will have great colour but the 5ms timing worries me. My BenQ is 1ms and I'm very sensitive to response times. For example my pc monitor is an Asus IPS panel with 5ms response time and when I've plugged my console into it before although it looks amazing I can feel the difference in lag. That could well be the difference in hardware though with the LG maybe being better at gaming. Hmmm decisions :(

  45. Hi admin. Thank you for this increidible article. What do you think of the VP2785? I can't find any reviews online. I'm looking for a 27-inch monitor for both PS4 pro and as a workstation monitor. I'd want one with the best picture quality and no significant issues like bleeding. If HDR monitors aren't panning out at the moment, do you have any recommendations?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. VP 2785 does support HDR10 and is good for professionals but peak nits is not enough for hdr wow. if you are spending that much for monitor, i recommend spend a little bit more and get Dell UP2718Q. It does have FALD 384 zones which drastically reduces backlight bleed. and support 10bits, 1000 nits.
      btw what kind of work are you doing? if your are using windows or pc the colors will look washed out on it. Its because most of the content on pc is in sRGB space and when its gets remapped into hdr rec 2020 color space, it'll get messed up. and windows limits the brightness to 100nits when HDR on.its to protect eyes. else non hdr content (white ) will be too bright when gets remapped.So, it's more like a future monitor.

      Delete
    2. And For non-HDR monitor i recommend getting LG Electronics 27UD68P-B (its the same as 68-p but with adjustable stand)

    1. Yes. 1080p upscaled content will look the same or slightly better. 4K content, you'll see a lot more details. and that 4k monitors supports higher % color space and uses 10 bit panels. So the colors'll look more saturated. And obviously 1080p to 4k monitor upgrade you'll get smoother, crisp text and clear picture

    Thanks for this!
    Why is the xg2700-4k not on the list? I´m planning to buy the xbox one x and are aware of that this screen doesn´t support freesync over hdmi. But Viewsonic have mentioned that this will be solved with firmware update, I don´t have any reference for that statement. What do think?

    1. Sorry for the late reply. my internet was down hehe. And about XG2700,Last time i checked It doesn't support HDCP 2.2. so you can't enjoy movies, only games. HDCP 2.2 support is necessary to play 4K UHD Blu-ray discs. If you're not watching movies you can get xg2700

    2. Well, I contacted Viewsonic about the freesync over HDMI to be resolved with firmvare update, the answer: "Unfortunately since the freesync feature takes both hardware and software we would not be able to release a firmware update for this unit". Is there a big issue with this freesync do you think? Which screen do You recommend?

      Delete
    3. Well,freeSync is a nice feature to have. It'll remove screen tearing. But i'm more concerned about HDCP 2.2 support. you can't enjoy 4K Blu-rays and 4K Netflix..which xbox one x support. The cheapest option with freesync is Asus VP28uqg and lg 27ud69p. Spending more for higher priced models at the moment not worth unless it does have that true HDR specs coming next year

    4. True a nice feature, according to http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-27UD69P-W-4k-uhd-led-monitor the 27ud69p doesn't support freesync over HDMI, only displayport. Is that the case? I also read that freesync range was narrower on the 69 compared to it's predecessor 68 (48-60 vs. 40-60)? Will it matter and should I still go for the 27UD69P? Will use it with the x1x (bf1).
