Im not sure how so many people ended up calling 1440p 2K, but its all over the web and even on product descriptions at times.

For the same reasons they call 2160p TV's 4k, marketing :)

HD is 720p so 2K is 1440p and 4K is 2160p.

Is 2K 1440p?

A TN panel is worth nowhere close to that price.

4K refers to a horizontal display resolution of approximately 4,000 pixels. That’s all it is.

Great for gaming. That's about it.
I prefer a high refresh rate monitor for general use and programming as well, you will end up paying a ton more for a high refresh rate 1440p ips monitor. The premium just isn’t worth slightly more accurate colours and slightly better viewing angles for most people.

Well that’s just wrong in 2019, but I suspect you are so used to the idea of tn panels being bad that nothing will change your mind.
