And definitely buy from a company in your home country whenever possible.

You do realize that those monitors use LG (Korean) panels right?

per a statement from Intel, they predict that by 2015 2560x1600 will be the mainstream resolution. there are already two 4096x2160 (4k) models scheduled for sale in 2013 . like i said above, the Dell 2560x1440 models have dropped $300-$400 in the last couple of months (with a low of $484). look for the prices to continue coming down as they release new models.

4K monitors are useless.

Yeah... Apple is burning through 'em trying to laminate 27" screens to bezels, which is reducing supply. Maybe I wasn't clear that that's my speculation. They're at least having a bump in demand as all the five people who want 27" iMacs upgrade at once.

But the Monoprice monitor will be ~$400, possibly better internals, and definitely easier to RMA. thumb.gif

my wife is a radiologist and currently uses 4k displays for reading X-Rays. most hospitals already have (or are in the process of getting) 4k displays. based on your statement, i assume you have never seen a 4k display in person.

We've had 1080p displays for like a decade. No-one is trying to develop 4K content. All movies have been recorded at 1080p for decades.

I don't see it changing anytime soon. Especially when you need a huge monitor to view 4K content because at 27 inches, 4K would make all text too tiny to read.

movies are recorded using either film or digital with film being much more common. digital recordings have either a 2k or a 4k native resolution. modern 35mm film can be processed to have a resolution in excess of 4,096 x 3,072. Spider Man 2 (2004) was one of the first movies to be produced at 4k resolution. James Bond films from the 1960's were remasterd using 4k resolution. anything filmed in iMax (70mm) has a resolution up to 9k. so basically anything filmed from about 1960 on can easily be rendered into a 4k resolution. most movie theaters have already upgraded to 4k projectors.

back in the days of VHS and DVD the content on them was 480 or 240 resolution. the original 35mm film used could have been processed into a 4k resolution there just wasn't sufficient media to store the amount of data needed (or a display to handle it). the same holds true now. we all watch Blu Rays at 1920 x 1080 resolution, but that doesn't mean the original film/media was recorded at 1920 x 1080.

the content is already there...

I just got my achieva shimian and mine has a problem that I cant seem to figure out,
Everything looks great and have no stuck pixels
BUT on the bottom of the screen there is a line id say 2 pixels high that goes all the way from left to right , the line is showing what would be at the top of the screen.

Its wrapping the image from the top and putting it on the bottom , but i am not missing anything on the top of the screen at all (i can move mouse cursor to top edge of screen and see all of it on the top of the screen. but also see the tip of it on the bottom of screen)
(Does it in bios even)

like with a window full sized i can see the top of the window open (can see red x close window button and tabs ect.) on the very bottom of my screen in the 2 pixel high line .

Sorry for writing the same description three different times lol. Hard to explain and screen capture doesnt show it happening.

Has anyone else experienced this? Know if its possible to fix?

I had just purchased an 27" Achieva Shimian after doing some research on what seller I would go through and what monitor brand would be the best choice overall.

Now my monitor is not turning on correctly I assume I bought two DVI-D(DUAL-LINK) in hopes that was the reason for no m display, and still the same problem I shot a video on YouTube showcasing the issue, If anyone can give feedback that would help, I think it is the backlight because I hear sound but no display and when I first turn on the monitor there is no backlight to be seen. Because if it is the back-light then I will feel more secure sending it back and being refunded, but the seller through eBay states that if the monitor works perfect I will be charge round-trip shipping fee's

Films are usually either 2k or 4k, with some analog film going up to 9k.. then again I guess you've never gone to the theater (Yes I know they don't use 4k there.) They do use a higher res then 1080p. IMAX is great because of higher res too.. Let's continue this TV standards mean everything craze of stalling.
