A 4K monitor is the best option if you need a sharper & richer gaming experience or if your editing work demands heavy visual details. I have spent hours analyzing and studying over 23 4K monitors from Amazon & Flipkart. In this review, we are going to discuss the top 5 of them.
Let’s cut the chase for those in a hurry – the BenQ EW3270U is the best 4K monitor in India due to its robust build, a 32″ crisp IPS display, & 4ms superior response that renders an excellent gaming experience. For editing professionals, I advise LG 27UK850-W – a super color-accurate monitor, and the cheapest 4K monitor is the EL2870U.
With that being covered, let’s hop into the details.

1.Best budget 4K monitor: BenQ EL2870U
- 28″ TN Display
- High Dynamic Range (HDR)
- Auto-Brightness Intelligence
- 1ms response, 60Hz FPS
- AMD Free Sync
- HDMI, DP 1.4
The BenQ EL2870U is the best budget 4K monitor you can get in India right now. First off, it has an inbuilt brightness intelligence that similar to our smartphone auto-brightness, works to adjust the display brightness according to the surrounding. The 1ms max response time renders lag-free performance in your favorite FPS gaming. Additionally, it supports HDR output, and you can expect improved dark and bright scene balance resulting in better depth. The color stability is just as you would expect in a budget display, i.e., they are a little saturated and average.
As an IPS panel, it should have had decent 180-degree viewing angles, but that’s not the case here, and a lot of users have complained of bad range. And finally, the BenQ EL2870U monitor comes with a stable plastic stand supporting tilt adjustment only.
2.Best 4K for editing: LG 27UK850-W
The LG 27UK850-W is for graphics and multimedia editing professionals. It’s priced slightly higher in this category, but the features are well worth the additional rupees. The 27″ display topped with a 2160p 4K resolution renders adequate space to make precise edits on videos, images, and other forms of graphics. Since it boasts IPS technology, you will experience higher color accuracy of up to sRGB 99% coverage. The connectivity module includes HDMI, DP & USB-C ports handy to connect your MacBook Pro to get your work going or use it as your charging station. Further, it is covered under a 3-years warranty, and you have little to worry about if anything. However, I have seen that a few people are complaining of minor color bleeding.

3.Best curved 4K monitor: Samsung LU32R590CW
- 32″ Curved VA display
- Brilliant slim build
- Over 1 Billion colors & 2500:1 contrast
- 4ms response & 60Hz shutter
- PBP tech – Enjoy two input devices side-by-side
The curved 32-inch Samsung UHD monitor stands out among other curved 4K monitors owing to the generous features it brings to your studio or office. It has a 60 HZ refresh rate and 4ms response time, one millisecond faster than the LG UHD IPS monitor above. Additionally, the monitor supports up to 1 billion color variations and has a 2500:1 contrast ratio. However, you will not enjoy bright colors and more realistic images and videos that would otherwise be supported by HDR. Also, the brightness levels achieved with this monitor are limited when compared to HDR monitors. But that is not to say you cannot get better since the LG monitor above has full support for HDR, although the price may be slightly higher.
Like other curved monitors, I do not recommend the Samsung 4K monitor for 3D modeling since some professionals complain of perception issues. Like for example, it may trick you into thinking your lines are not straight even when they are. However, with a 16:9 aspect ratio, it is an excellent companion for consoles like Xbox One and PS4 Pro.

4.Best 4K for movies: Acer Nitro VG280K
- 28″ IPS display
- 4ms response, 60Hz frame rate
- Latest HDR 10
- AMD Radeon freesync
- 2W inbuilt speakers
The Acer Nitro VG280K 4K display comes with a ZeroFrame design allowing an attractive look and more space to watch the things that matter to you. It features an IPS display that renders impressive color output and decent brightness of 300NITs. Along the line, it has full support for HDR10 – meaning better-looking pictures and stunning dark scenes. You can enjoy your favorite movies and web series with incredible details.
Additionally, the monitor works with FreeSync, which essentially allows it to work at the same rate as your GPU and thus enjoy a stable FPS. The benefit is that the screen will not stutter or tear while you binge on your favorite content or play games. Furthermore, the monitor has a straight edge, which works better for movies than curved counterparts.
5.Best 32″ 4K monitor for gaming: BenQ EW3270U
- 32″ IPS HDR display
- 95% DCI color gamut
- 4ms response, 60Hz frame rate
- Best for intense gaming
- Eye care display
Finally, in our list of the best 4K monitors in India is the BenQ EW3270U. The 32″ IPS 4K display boasts a decent 95% DCI color profile delivering true-to-life picture output. The inbuilt Smart Eyecare Technology minimizes total blue light output so you can play your favorite games without experiencing eye discomfort. It has about 4ms fast-paced response and can render a 60Hz shutter rate in 4K (depends on system strength).
Moreover, it supports AMD’s FreeSync to keep the display refresh rate in sync with the GPU frame rate (FPS) – reducing the input latency, screen stuttering, and tearing, giving you a seamless play experience. The monitor has an inbuilt USB-C port, which makes Macbook connectivity convenient.
And what if you do not like to have your gaming monitor on your desk? Honestly, that sounds like me, and luckily, the BenQ EW3270U can be mounted on a wall for efficiency and comfort.
Should you buy/not a 4K monitor?
Simply put, yes! But before buying a 4K monitor, there are a few things you should know. First, a 4K monitor requires a dedicated graphics card to render 4K output. It doesn’t have to be a premium; a 1GB card should be enough. Additionally, your computer should also have either a display port 1.4, Thunderbold 2/3, or HDMI 2.0 to avoid the 30Hz bottleneck associated. And then, not a lot of applications are built for 4K as of yet. So the pixel density issues with Windows and some third-party applications are very likely. With a heavy number of pixels on a 4K monitor, some applications may look blurry. At the same time, text may appear small when the DPI scale increases.
You should upgrade to a 4K to future proof your display or if your work like editing or designing demands greater pixel density. Enjoying 4K movies and games are also popular reasons for the upgrade. For the rest, the classy 1080p monitor is still gold.
