The response time is high if you are a serious gamer but for the price the specs aren't all that bad. The only other slights are there is no integrated audio (depending upon your preferences, it's always convenient for test systems) nor is there any integrated USB hub. The LG 24UD58-B does support VESA 100 x 100 monitor mounts and its included stand is quite simple.

I haven't run into any problems with either of the LG 4K displays picked up. The brightness and colors aren't quite as good as the more expensive ASUS, Acer and Samsung 4K displays used on the graphics card test systems, but for being just additional displays in the lab they are great and haven't run into any troubles with either display. For $219 USD, they are quite a steal while at some Internet retailers are still around ~$230 USD.

If you are looking for a budget 4K display, frankly the LG 24UD58-B is a terrific deal all things considered. Keep in mind if going for the display as a Linux FreeSync setup, you'll need to use the DisplayPort connection and there isn't yet working multi-monitor Linux FreeSync support, but those limitations aren't there with NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible and their latest Linux drivers. But if you are looking for a 60Hz FreeSync and/or 4K display and looking for an affordable yet name brand display, the LG 24UD58-B is an excellent contender.
