Help me choose a monitor?
1

I had a 27" Apple Cinema Display and sold it during a move (it's a bit of a beast). Having a retina 15" MBP, I didn't feel like I missed out on anything with the lower resolution...I don't edit 4K video, though I might in the future so 4K might be smart just to stay clear of upgrades.

My needs:

- I want good color for photo editing as that's my primary purpose
- I don't want to drop more than 5-600 and I'm happy to buy used
- 4K probably best, but not necessary
- I don't have to have a MAC-specific monitor, like the LG, but that's not a bad option...I will probably build a Ryzen system so I don't want anything I could use with regular connections
- definitely need VESA mount compatibility

I've seen a LG monitors, and some BenQs. I'd probably lean in that direction, but which? Here are 2 I'm seriously considering. Anyone have experience from a photo-editing-color perspective? I feel like having the 4K option would keep me ready for video editing and LG makes the 27" iMac screens so these must be good..
