This 28-inch 4K monitor is great for upping the resolution in a home office. For casual gaming, the 60 Hz TN panel has FreeSync to fight screen tears when paired with an AMD graphics card.
The VP28UQG should be usable in a well-lit environment, offering a max brightness of 300 nits. As a TN panel, we don’t expect brilliant contrast (it’s specced at 1,000:1) or colors. However, at this price it looks like a decent entryway to 4K
