    I am looking for a 4K LCD monitor that can double for professional content creation for a family member. High Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 coverage a plus. Price range is $1000 and under.

    Hey Sonic, sorry the late reply but did you check out some of the 32" monitors on this [H]ard thread?

    Some notable examples mentioned are:

    "Dell UltraSharp U3219Q 400cd/m2, 5ms (fast), 1,300:1 (sRGB: 99%, Rec. 709: 99%, DCI-P3: 95%)
    Viewsonic VP3268 350cd/m2, 5ms (fast), 1,300:1 (sRGB: 99%, Rec. 709: 99%)
    Dell UltraSharp UP3216Q 300cd/m2, 6ms (fast), 1,000:1 (Adobe RGB: 99, sRGB: 100%)"

    The Viewsonic VP3268 is actually going for less than $800 on Amazon, and seems to have reviewed quite well.

    If you need full Adobe RGB, there is an Amazon Warehouse listing of the UltraSharp UP3216Q for $910 or new from Newegg for $1099.

    I mean if you're going 4K, might as well go 'big' right? ;)

    Thanks! I finished combing through dozens of review sites looking at the DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB color gamut coverage and I found the Dell UP3216Q at the top of the results... until I stumbled on that stray Reddit post mentioning the Lenovo P27U-10. Upon some further investigation, I saw Amazon listed many rave reviews of the Lenovo P27U-10 as did Adorama as well. An Amazon reviewer concludes that it is the best monitor he has ever owned of the dozens he has ever had over the years. It seems to be a steal for all the features it packs. In fact, I was able to buy one new just now with the three-year manufacturer’s warranty for only $390 on eBay—it literally popped up out of nowhere. Hopefully, it works out well. I’ll reply back with my thoughts when I receive it later next week.

    Wow. Sweet deal! :thumbsup: Congrats.

    Let us know how it goes. It's always nice reviewing/discussing gear with other (totally-obsessed) hardware nerds. :vbtongue:

    Oh and can I just say, between this and the SP7 bundle you just snagged, I think I know why you're called @sonichedgehog360...

    Because you're so fast at collecting those gold rings (tech deals). :D
