Just leave already....all the stuff I said above still stands and is not blatant BS like the stuff you say....you're just getting bent out of shape for no reason
No offense, but you're the one getting bent out of shape. I have no strong attachment to catleap or any other korean monitor. In fact, I plan on buying the American 1440p 120 Hz monitor when it comes out.


All I'm doing is pointing out that what you're saying is objectively and demonstrably false, literally. I.e., it is "BS". You've obviously not even read my responses more than a skim through, since what you've said doesn't even make sense in context.

Next year, I'm giving some thought to trying out an IPS monitor. I don't expect pricing to go down on these IPS 60HZ models until 120 Hz IPS monitors pick up.

120Hz IPS won't happen due to the speed of pixel response (will cause motion blur), which is why TN is used in all 120Hz displays. Beyond TN is likely OLED, but may be a while before prices become anywhere near affordable. And then we have 4K on the horizon....which will probably be the next standard after 1080p.

no they will not.
if you've been watching ANY HIGH END PRODUCT for a while what they do is update the product with new features... and discontinue the old. since the discontinued product will still be in demand but with limited supply the price will still be relatively high compared to its newer compadre.

the dell or hp 1440/1600p just cannot hit the $300 mark. not anytime soon. by them being dell or hp/american they have to enter with a $200-$300 more price tag. they have to be priced at $500-600 for them to have that dell/hp logo. marketing, warranty, corporate costs etc...

He asked if the price will drop, not if the price would drop to the $300 mark.

I'm predicting that it will be about 2016 before we start to see 4K resolution monitors at consumer-level prices. Monitors seem to be slow to adopt higher resolutions because of the higher demands that a monitor makes vs. a TV, tablet, etc. The technology just isn't cheap enough yet to get a 4K down to a reasonable price, and I don't see that changing for a few years.

I've been enjoying my HP ZR30W for the past year, and I expect it to last me at least a few more. The high resolution and incredible colors were definitely worth the price (about $1000) for me. I noticed on Ebay that even the Korean manufacturers can't offer the 30" 2560x1600 for much less than $1000.

Whether it's worth it to spend the money on a high res monitor is up to you. I would point out that people think nothing of spending thousands and thousands of dollars more on a car than they have to, and yet they spend far more time in front of their monitors than driving their cars. My car isn't the greatest; it gets me from point A to B reliably, and that's about it. However, I spent the extra money to get an exceptional monitor, and I am so glad I made the jump. It was definitely worth it for me.

 

4K resolution? Isn't that movie theater status?

like i said in my previous post the price will not drop. they'll reintroduce them with newer models with a much higher price and the older models will be driven up in price by the demand... it happens in every product. 30" and 27" monitors have always been expensive. ever since they were introduced...

the koreans are special monitors even though you're kind of playing russian roulette. $300 for a new 1440p monitor with a chance of few bad pixels is still good.

yes. 4k is well over 8 million pixels per frame bigeyedsmiley.png

we may not see a 4k monitor at £800 (1k$) for a long time (although there was actually a prototype 31.5" 16:9 4k monitor at CES) so they are coming, but hey if you want to edit your 4k movie you need a 4k monitor.

whats an interesting thought though is that we will probably see a glut of samsung, LG, sony TV`s @ 4K and 46-50" with IPS and (frame creation) 120hz. So it will actually be the mainstream TV market that super cedes resolution in even the highest reference 1600p monitors! and the price will be below £800 ($1k) (not talking gamma and colour acuracy)

Think about that PPI ..

46" 16:9 4k Pixel Density: 9180 pixels / sq. in.
24" 16:9 1080p Pixel Density: 8428 pixels / sq. in.

yup that crisp 24" 1080p monitor is actually less defined than a 46" TV right in front of you ! go smaller on the TV like 40" (if they bother making one that size) and you even have much more definition and crisper text than a 30" 1600p monitor at 10 inches more !!

a REALLY big desk maybe required in future biggrin.gif

might make eyefinity seem a bit pointless for most
