On boxing day I got a pair of Monoprice 27in 4K 3840x2160 ActiveHDR monitors. They were $249, now $399 but they go on sale very often.
They are lovely, search for Product # 27771

Love my Benq sw2700pt.

Me too - awesome monitor - displays sRGB and RGB -- About $600 at B&H and Amazon ... other places too.

Any recommendations? I just bought a Spyder4Pro calibration kit. I used to use a Sony XBR6 52" TV for some casual shot editing, but wanted to do more serious editing for landscape. Thanks!

BenQ 2700PT
Cameras: 1DXII,5D III, 5D II.  Lenses    24-70 2.8L II IS, 70-200 f4L IS, 70-200 f2.8L IS II, EF 400 5.6L, 300 2.8 IS II, Samyang 14 mm 2.8.   Flashes: 600EX-RT X 2, ST-E3-RT, 580 EX II.
Plus lots of stuff that just didn't work for me

Benq 32" 2k monitor :)

The price is spectacular (about $500 USD), it's huge, and the color gamut is good.  It also comes with a programmable puck, that you can configure with hotkeys for a few one-button color settings.

Personally, I also prefer 2k to 4k for photo stuff, because not very many people out there have 4k (and I like to see things as they would).  Not that many people have 2k either, but because the monitor is so large, the pixel density is only slightly more than a 1080p on the average monitor.
