Monitor choice - 4 kips for 1k:)

The time has come to move my editing from my laptop screen to a good external monitor.

I'll be driving it from my Macbook Pro 15" Retina, running an i7 @2.3Ghz, 16GB RAM and 2GB GPU.

I'm thinking of getting a 30-32" 4k IPS monitor, ideally with 99.5% Adobe RGB. In my price band (based on where I live) I found the following:

Dell UP3216Q - EUR 1,375

Asus PA329Q - EUR 1,320

LG31MU97 Z-B - EUR 990

The latter is actually Cine 4k ie slightly wider (4096x2160) and overall slightly smaller at 31.5".  It gets a lot of very good expert and user reviews but also a couple of poor user ones.

Ideally I'd want to spend around 1000 EUR so already 1.3k is a stretch, I won't stretch further (so no Eizo or the like).

What would you recommend, based on the options above or others I may not have considered?
