I wonder what you consider expensive...

If you are in the 4K league, shelling $1200 on GPUs is meh when you are shelling a lot more for the display alone.

27'' 4K screen would be the smallest I would consider for such resolution. Although most people would probably prefer 32'' or 36'' for that resolution which would have more common optimal viewing distances with 20/20 vision.

I am sorry but this is wrong. No you don't need to be 40cm to see pixels on a 27" 4k screen that is crap.

I just got Lasik yesterday but a week ago I had gotten my prescription updated. With my old glasses I was around 20/30 and I have no problem reading everything on my 22 inch 4k (3840x2400 display) from 20 inches away (50cm). Keep in mind this is on linux with X-windows set at 75 DPI which means even smaller fonts for everything than people use on windows computers. I can read it from almost 3 feet away when I got my updated prescription. So you would have to have crap vision (no where near 20/20) to be able to have trouble from 40cm on a 27 inch 4k display which would make things significantly bigger than my 22 inch.

I wish people would stop saying what people can or can't use at what distances until they actually have one sitting in front of them. I have been using 4k displays since 2006 so I know what I am talking about.

Anyway I did start a thread about this same monitor on hard-forum around the same time of this one here:

http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1765079

My guess was it could be a sub $1000 display due to the fact is using the S-MVA panel from ChiMei (the same panel in the 39 inch chinese tv''s which go for under $700 USD).

Another source confirmed it should be under $1000:

And some more pictures for anyone interested:

I have a rack full of servers/storage with over 200TB of storage in my rack and I still consider a 3 way gtx 670 SLI or titan a huge amount of money especially for just videocards/gaming.

I'm not sure if the first 40inch 60hz 4K monitor with an ASUS label on it would be the bargain of the century but if what they are saying is true then you'd hope it'd be around $1500. $700-1000 is far too cheap for a product like this that has ASUS written on it.

If you're in the market for 4K then you can afford GTX Titan SLI to power it. This is OCN remember.

How much better is IGZO when compared to VA or IPS?

Edit: For $4000, Asus' customer service had better be absolutely exceptional when it comes to monitor replacements/exchanges, like Dell.

Edit 2: Oops, sorry. Wrong monitor, was referring to the 4k 31-incher. redface.gif

Idk perhaps we have different views on what expensive means. To me being able to afford something doesn't make it not expensive. Then again Im talking to someone with an $8,000 rig so maybe I shouldn't be surprised. Totally different tax bracket. tongue.gif

Considering the panel by itself is probably under $500 ( just the panel) I don't see any reason ASUS couldn't do this under $1000 and still be making hefty profit.

I think it mostly comes down to how cheaply they can actually get the panel for.
