It still surprises me how cheap new 27" 4K monitors are.
I'm always temped to get one as I went out of my way to get a used Dell Ultrasharp 27" 1440p for $300.

I just can't get over the fact that I will need to scale it for work use down to the DPI of a 1440p monitor and the GPU needed to play games on it is out of my price range.

Can't decide between this and the Dell S2721DS for the same price.
Don't super need 4k as 1440p is fine on a 27, but it's still not a bad thing to have LOL.

Just a detail on this, LG seems very confident on this Product Warranty: 36 months as per the product details at The Source website.

To be honest if you're not a professional then most monitors are fine for photo editing much less this one.

I would not delineate between professional or not. My line would be your output medium. If it’s going on the internet, it probably does not matter, as a huge chunk of the population are not using calibrated displays.

Now, if you are printing and want your screen to reflect your prints, then yeah, you need proper colour gamut coverage and accuracy.

The bezels are fairly large on this one compared to other similar monitors. I got it last time but didn't like the thickness in a side by side setup

You're not wrong but most professional videographers and Youtubers still colour correct.

27" is WAY too small for 4k, minimum 30"+

What's the point of freesync if the hz is 60?

So you don't have to use horrible V-Sync on games that may run at 50-55 fps at 4K, for example.
