Displays that user newer panel tech that provides better color detail, better viewing angles, better response times, etc etc. Who in their right mind, that uses 1080P, would say no to a better picture quality in color depth and clarity?
Those of us speaking out in this thread aren't speaking out just over this one display, but the entire industry. It is frustrating to see companies, especially one like Ben-Q, putting out another display that is using decade old technology, with decade old specs.
There's no upside to innovation for the corporations when what they are currently making is selling. I don't like it either, but that's the way it is. And while there is a enthusiast market for Korean displays for gamers, Dell and the rest don't care because they have oodles of corporate accounts.
As well, denser displays are a non-starter since Windows' DPI scaling is half-arsed at best. Until that gets fixed, 0.23mm dot pitch is pretty much as dense as displays can go and still be usable.
