I'm looking to purchase this monitor at Best Buy

I just got an Xbox One X and I currently have a Ben Q monitor that does 1080p. It's been working beautifully for years but I figure I might as well upgrade to 4K.

I don't know much about 4k. Looking for any opinions, comments, recommendations, whatever.

i've used a 27" 4k hdr monitor, hdr was the big game changer, not 4k. i would recommend sticking with the 1080p monitor for now, as most games don't support hdr yet, and often the choice is either 4k/30fps or 1080p/60fps. maybe in a year there will be more monitor options. as it is now it can get pretty confusing with only some ports supporting hdr, some supporting freesync, etc.

I’m surprised people buy a monitor especially for gaming as opposed to just using a TV.

The input lag and refresh rate, bro.

I've got the Samsung CHG90 monitor. It's pretty good and I recommend it. It's a 49" 4K HDR monitor btw.

Can you use a monitor for watching TV? If so, then I could see the purpose of spending on a monitor. I assume you can at least use it to watch Netflix/Amazon Prime, etc via your XBox? And what do you do for audio?
