Best 4K HDMI Gaming Monitors for 2020 with UHD & HDR

There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a new monitor. In addition to price, resolution (2K, 4k, etc), and game console compatibility (the 3 driving factors for this list of 3 monitors), it’s important to also consider:
– monitor stand footprint: how much space will it take up on your desk?
– height adjustability: will you be able to achieve the optimal ergonomics?
– physical ports: do you need additional USB ports from the monitor? An extra HDMI port?
