Well the monitor I am looking at is $839 AUD, so that's about $700 U.S. In comparison to what you paid and for what you got at that time this is a much better deal for the upgrade in quality. So why did you pay $1000, what did that screen have that others for $500 didn't?

Top of the line color accurate wide gamut monitor, easy to calibrate, hardware calibration, excellent stability and uniformity, 10 bpc (this one's a nice to have just like 4K). A NEC PA272W is about $1000 without a calibrator where a 27" Eizo Coloredge can set you back $2000 US. The Eizo 23.8" 4K monitor is $2800 US.

IMO these are the highest grade monitors available for photo editing.

You don't have to buy a NEC PA series or Eizo to get a good monitor for editing, just be careful to not select a monitor because it is 4K or 5K as your most important criteria. Maybe this is a bad example, but if a $700 US 4K or 5K monitor has the color accuracy, etc. of a $200 to $300 US 2560 x 1440 monitor (economy IPS) I'd happily give up 4K or 5K and look at a "better" 2560xx1440 monitor that fits the same budget.

The monitor I have (Dell Ultra HD 4k Monitor P2715Q) spans 100 percent of sRGB and 79 percent of AdobeRGB but with calibration can get to 80%. Is it IDEAL? No. But for myself, it does the job... especially since I only paid $500 (after tax & shipping).

Here's a link, take a look. http://www.newegg.com …aspx?Item=N82E1​6824002531 (external link)

To be brief:
Matte, low glare screen (vs glossy consumer monitors)
wide gamut 99% AdobeRGB (vs sRGB consumer monitors)
wide viewing angle (color and brightness don't change no matter where you are)
10 bit color (vs 8 bit in consumer monitors)
14bit LUTs (although I end up using my Spyder Elite, I've found the myriad factory calibration settings for different light temps to be alarmingly accurate)

So that way more costly then I am looking at and smaller and the one I am looking at is 4K....

Yes and that is his point. For still photography at least, all of the advantages in colour gamut and consistency, outweigh the extra 3" and added resolution. These other qualities in a monitor that is bigger, higher resolution AND cheaper, are likely to be way down the list. If you are only editing together video, and you are not colour grading it, then it won't be an issue to you. If colour accuracy matters to you though a cheap large 4K monitor is not going to be good.

It will also I guess depend on the quality of your own vision. If you cannot see the difference between a monitor with good colour etc, then it won't make much difference to you. But size and resolution are much easier to spot.

Well I can tell you that it's definitely a nice monitor. I've read that the factory color calibration is pretty darn accurate but it could use some adjustment and things tend to run a little cool. I'll be picking up a calibrator in the next week or so to adjust this. It checks all the marks on MY box. Price, size, quality, IPS, 4k, height/tilt/swivel adjustments, USB 3.0, etc.

Like I said, it's really hard to beat for the price.
