    Speaking of latest technology - it looks like a newer revision of the ca. 3 year old (!) panel of the LG 27UD58-B (both using LG-Philips LCDs)...
    Only difference i can make out is the brightness is higher on announced Philips, and older LG has FreeSync (40-60Hz).

    Lowest price for the latter is currently €279. (Plus there is a version of it with adjustable stand with pivot available - for a bit more).
    Therefore i would not call it a great deal price/perf. wise. But the slim bezel on Phil admittably has a more modern and sexy look... ;)

    Unfortunately the only relatively affordable option i could find with 4K HDR & 120+ Hz is the ViewSonic VP2785-4K, prices starting around €1000.
    (If someone is already spoiled with a size of 32" or more - like me - would have to pay 2300++ for similar specifications)
    So the tech seems a bit too expensive for most gamer - and most professionals do not really care about gaming specs for a monitor...
    Could you settle for WQHD/"2K"? The MSI Optix AG32CQ or Acer ED3 ED323QURA or ViewSonic VX3258-2KC would be a good choice for you then
    (all these start from around €400).

    I have the MG279Q, I won't change it until it dies unless some sort of revolution occurs. 32" looks more pixelated and is 75hz enough? Running 60hz on the MG279Q is a bad experience.

    HDR 400 is the bare minimum req for any tv or monitor nowadays. Who buys these with low luminance now like this 350 cd/m?

    The news actually got me hipped until I read your comment.
    60hz has to die, fast! We need 100hz as the standard.
