I had previously purchased another 4k monitor that used a normal TN panel and I could not withstand the color shift even at small angle changes and also the washed out colors. I returned that monitor and paid more than twice as much for this one and it was well worth the difference.
The build quality is not as good as my older NEC, but it is okay enough. It comes with the stand assembled and it is very easy to adjust in all possible ways. The buttons on the front are touch buttons and are very functional although I prefer the actual mechanical push type buttons. The monitor comes with plenty of input options and many many menu functions for adjustments.
The resolution is phenomenal as expected and I am very lucky as I cannot detect a single bad pixel. I am using it uncalibrated on default settings and the colors are just amazing. I am seeing colors that I have never seen before on my old NEC. I'm no expert on gamut coverage, color standards, and color profiles, but this monitor is letting me see much more in my images. Someday soon I will purchase the SpectraView calibration kit.
I have not tried gaming on it as I am not much of a gamer any longer, I am more of a hobby photographer now. Coming from a 16:10 ratio, it does feel odd to me to use 16:9 and wish it was 2400 pixels in the Y. NEC is known for their superior monitors and this one is another addition to their family. And yes, I am still keeping my old NEC for a dual setup. So was it worth spending the money? I would say yes as 4k monitors are relatively new, specially with an IPS panel in a 24". The only main concern I have is for a monitor at this price point, I wish the build quality was better. Like everything else, manufacturer's are using cheaper and cheaper materials to cut costs. I won't complain too much, as long as it is reliable and lasts a while. Time will tell, as for me, monitors are a very long term investment.
I had the PA272w in house for several weeks. This has long been the gold standard for photographers wanting to NOT spend $2k+. It has Adobe RGB and spectacular uniformity and superb control of calibration with it's Spectra-view software. I found it superb for editing photographs but kept having to adjust text sizes for readability and text was never quite retina-level crisp. It'a 2.5k model, not 4k.
I did end up with a preference for EIZO or NEC based on reviews and verbal feedback. The Dell models for example always seem to have 10% to 20% one star reviews, and each model seems to have it's faults. One model tends to arrive with dead pixels. Another model tends to turn itself off. Not horrible, but not optimal either.
Ironically this NEC EA244UHD developed a problem the second week, but the telephone and email support is FANTASTIC, and they solved it for me immediately. (Electronic communication for calibration via displayport with xrite is unreliable so they recommend using an adjunct USB cable. That works great.
I love using the Spectraview software for calibration control and I keep several different Adobe RGB calibrations on my computer, and vary among them, both for business needs as well as pleasure and eye health. (I vary the white point from D65 to D75 and I vary intensity from 120 to 160).
The only disadvantage to this model is that the Spectraview software calibrates Adobe RGB only; it does not calibrate in sRGB mode like the PA series does. On the PA series you can drop into sRGB mode within the Spectraview software whereas with this EA model you have to change it on the monitor and then on the Mac Display preferences ICC panel (I'm using a 2015 MacBookPro 13" maxed out with all options).
As for 27" vs 24", so far I find it a wash. 27" I can run at 2.5k comfortably and get more real estate visible, whereas I run 24" in 2k mode. However with 24" I'm not moving my head around so much, which is a big advantage after a long day. Also the 24" 4k monitor run in 2k mode gives a near-retina experience, as I mentioned earlier.
I did strongly consider the iMac 5k which is fantastically sharp in 2.5k mode. I shied away from it for too reasons:
-- Seems very bright and glossy, which is initially attractive but might be tiring over time. Honestly I'm not sure about this, but I prefer the comfort of the matt screen of the NEC
-- For my personal use, portability is a big advantage, so I'd rather connect a laptop to a screen than have an all in one like the iMac.
Apple recently discontinued their current display offering. ("Cinema"?). This might mean that they plan to introduce a 4k or 5k screen in September. Rumor is that they might offer a unit with an on board graphics chip and dedicated memory, which would make a lot of sense IF the connector is fast enough. I'm doubtful that an external graphics chip OUTSIDE of a computer can have a fast enough connector to be worthwhile, but am open minded.
Bear in mind that this is a 4k monitor. Do your research to make sure that your machine will drive a 4k monitor, especially at 60hz.
Hope this helps.
UPDATE: I had to return this unit because it developed a problem in the first couple of weeks. When viewing an area of pure white, it would show light green blotches. I emailed a photo of this to NEC display tech support and they said it's defective, please return it. I still think this is a 5 star unit if you get one that is working right. I love looking at Adobe color, it is slightly richer than sRGB. And 4k is near retina sharp as I suggested, when viewed in 2k mode.
+ Excellent color and grayscale performance.
+ Tons of I/O ports.
+ Fully adjustable stand.
+ Extensive image and management settings.
- No auto-rotate option.
A really decent monitor all round but you may want to compare the price & specs with this Dell: http://amzn.to/1R8LE99
