Really looking forward to your review!

I chickened out just before pulling the trigger on that Skyworth TV, and am waiting to hear about pricing for the Asus 39" which seems likely based on the same panel. Basically it's a matter of weighing in 60hz support, correct voltage for North America (avoiding the use of a step-up converter), warranty coverage, and more affordable shipping when distributed in my region, versus getting a stab at a 4K monitor in 30hz right now for 1100$ for the Skyworth (delivered). Your review just might tip me over...

We'll have to see from the picture I noticed the chinese power plug but I've also ordered an adapter no problem there.
If they use the same panel I might get myself that Asus controller board mod the power board to work with it.
The backlight module may also be different but as i just said we'll have to see.

Sounds good. Looking forward to it. While I cant afford a 4K screen for now I'm quite interested in them. Would be quite willing to trade 20% of my total pixels amount for a bezelless a bit more immersive experiece. While Bezels dont annoy me personally they are noticeable when they intercept peoples faces or sharp edges.

Perhaps if I spot a good enough one which is cheap enough I can convince my employer that my productivity would increase enough with such screen to justify the expense smile.gif

Well it is currently in customs and I have already dug up my adapater so I can plug the Chinese plug in a European power socket.
China and the EU both are 220/240V but I don't know if it has build in switching for 100/120V(US) if it doesn't have that a upscale transformer would be required to up the voltage to the required level.
post #297 of 498
well it arrived I'm typing this on it right now.
I was in for quite a suprise as it came with 4 active 3d glasses but NO HDMI CABLE redface.gif
I will fetch a HDMI cable soon probably tonight already for now I'm running it trough vga-dvi converter
post #298 of 498
Oke so I've been playing with it tonight as I lended an hdmi cable from a friend.
So far it has been really great UHD on 39 needs a ridiculous dpi percentage as windows doesn't scale as it should (windows 7 ultimate x64)
I have tested various modus and the only thing that is holding this thing back for now is the 330Mhz pixel clock limit (I get problems once I pass 335Mhz)
So the results so far with a gtx570 and I warn you those results are gonna shock you:
I got to 140Hz @ 1080P
I got up to 38Hz @ 3840x2160

I don't know if the 140Hz test is throwing out frames once it passes 120 though as that is what the panel is rated for but I figure with an AMD cards or a Nvidia card without the 330Mhz limit I can get 60Hz over a single hdmi cable hdmi 1.4 once hdmi 2.0 gets out it might be even better.
I will write this all up in a review later on but so far it has been stunning (except for windows scaling like feces and me being forced to run it at 200% dpi to read my skype messages biggrin.gif )

How far are you sitting away from the display? At 39", if it's the normal distance between a monitor on a desk and you, wouldn't you be able to read everything clearly?

38Hz is better than 30.

Err... I thought the DPI percentage was how Windows actually did its scaling...
