Hey i was looking for a 4k monitor for around 500 euro.

I am from Ireland and Amazon UK would be preferred.

I would like the size to be around 27" to 30" and a glossy panel would be a plus!

Cheers

There's loads. I bought my first one a couple of years back for cheaper than that. And that's considering that 4k is now "mainstream"

OP - Whats your monitor for, gaming, content creation ect?

I own a similar monitor to this one, just the one I own is a 27UD68 instead of the 27UD58 and the 27UD68 is one the best 4k monitors I have owned within that price range. I don't believe there is too big a difference between the 58 and 68. I believe the 58 is heavier, while the 68 can get brighter and has a thinner bezel. The only cons with the 68 are the stand and the power brick (these might be null with the 58.) The stand does feel a bit shaky, so if you're an aggressive typer or just hit your desk a lot, you will see it shake. However, if you have your own monitor stand, then using the VESA mount will fix this problem. Onto the power brick, that thing simply just gets hot after having the monitor on for a few hours. It's something I would be cautious about using on carpet, but if you have wood or tile, then you shouldn't be worried too much. Other than that, mine came with no dead or stuck pixels, black-light bleed is not there at all and if it is, it's so minuscule I can't tell. The menu options for the monitor are used with a little control stick on the monitor which is much easier than a few monitors I've used in the past. Make sure you get an HDMI 2.0 Cable or a DP 1.3 Cable, that way there is enough bandwidth to run the monitor at it's full 4k 60Hz (or get a DP 1.4 Cable for that 8k 60 Hz lol.)

What GPU are you using by chance? Even with a 1080 Ti, there are some games where you have to lower a few settings to reach the threshold of 4k @ 60 FPS or higher. PUBG doesn't count because that shit is just an un-optimised mess.
