For the same reason a TN monitor costs less than an IPS monitor.

Another thing, why would the bigger variant cost less money? Does the extra 4 degrees viewing angle really add 60% to the monitor's value? Finally, can someone justify the price of $1000-2000? It seems to little for what you're actually getting? Am I the only one who thinks this?

I reckon less than $2000 is to cheap for this monitor. I'm thinking high 2s or low 3s. It's new technology they are not going to fire sell it or less the 2. A lot of people here have stated they will nab one if it less than 2. Asus will know that and add a bit on,

There is a massive difference between the types of panels. There is more than one technology used to build displays, and some of them cost vastly more than others.

It's just my thoughts. Nothing more nothing less.


it's new tech for them.
People that will want this have already spent a bit more on there system than avg joe.
Marketing reasons
Since when has something new been released in the pc world that has been perceived cheap at the RRP.
It's cheaper tech to make than the Igzo but still the panel manufacturer still has to change the manufacturing procedure to make the totally new product.

Introducing a new product usually isn't that huge of a problem. You will need new tooling in various machines for automated assembly, but if you don't automate the assembly then all you need is the new tooling for plastic parts.

A mold for any plastic part is ran on a generally universal machine (barring machines set up for one job and only one job designed to run as fast as physically possible, but that is another application entirely), using a large mold which can be removed to make other parts.

Assembly can be done by workers on a line, requiring nothing more than changing out parts bins and handheld power tool bits.

Manufacturing custom PCBs is easy, again just a die change to punch the boards, and apply masking/etching.

In highly automated processes that DON'T use robots, this gets to be a big deal, but general assembly isn't done that way. When using robots for assembly, it is even more trivial. Tool changes on the robots and load in new programming then watch it go.

New designs, new tests etc.

I guess it all hinges on if it can 60hz (i havent read whole thread maybe it does). If it is 60hz I can't see it being anywhere near the price of a cheap quality 50" seiko.

Well Seiki is coming out with their TV that uses the same panel but will be limited to 30 Hz instead of 60Hz. The seiki is almost surely going to be $700-ish or less as their 50 inch can be had for $1100.

So is getting a 60Hz version instead of 30Hz really worth $2k+ and 3x+ the price? I don'pt think so. To be competitive I think it will be around $1000 maybe a bit less or a bit more. Anything over $1500 and they are ripping people off.

Why wouldn't it be?

I must have missed something that brought up this question. While HDMI is limited to 24hz at those resolutions, and as such 4k TVs seem to be limited to 30 hz (as they can't even use 60hz anyways, might as well save power on refresh rates) Displayport 1.2 can handle 4k resolutions at 60 hz without a problem, using only one cable.

HDMI is limited to 30Hz at 4K whether this driver board can and works with my panel will decide if I'm getting one of those driver boards.
