I was referring specifically to resolution width, not physical width, in that particular instance but I do agree that there is definitely something to be said for physical width/height as well. I probably should have made that more clear. redface.gif

Awesome. Presumably 5120x2160 then?

If you ask me, they need to do away with these stupid dics that are so big and get damaged easy.

What we need is for the industry to adopt the microSD format, which can hold 32+ Gb. Why they insist on holding on to such a stupid disk format is beyond me. Clearly, Blu-ray disk was supposed to be the solution to the problem, but only introduced more problems because even the latest technology can't keep up with the high resolution TVs.. With a high capacity sd card storage solution, we wouldn't need up scaling. In fact, downscaling would be the more sane solution, but hey, money talks. How are these movies supposed to look on 4K HDTVS?

I just don't get it. Movies are filmed in a 21:9 aspect ratio but we are forced to watch them letterboxed on a 16:9, or s---t---r---e---t---c---h out and we lose the sides. There shouldn't be such a huge rift between movie theater screens and HDTV screens. It's a headache that just doesn't have to be.

I read about the different firmware releases of this monitor and seems like a bunch of shenanigans. The date of manufacture of my monitor is January 2014, yet it still has the older 1.13 firmware compared to the newer 1.25. I accessed the service menu to verify. Now why would a monitor made just 3 months ago have an OLDER firmware than one made a year ago????

Even though on the back of the monitor it says "revision 02".
