Asus PQ321Q. Should i or shouldn't i?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Right now i'm running a Dell U3014 and i love it but kinda have my preferred account money burning a hole in my pocket. How much of a difference should i expect by switching to 4K? Will i be disappointed? Will 4K monitor prices be coming down anytime soon?

Wow grandma, what big monitors you have.. Is this an HTPC application?

IMHO
there's still almost no 4k video to speak of, so the only thing it will do is be a giant screen with tiny tiny writing on it. As for pricing It will go down, but how fast is hard to say. If some company gets some 4k content out there and folks start buying them as TVs the price will go down quickly.

dunno how useful that is though. :/

At that cost... only if you are going to crossfire (at least) 2 290Xs.

If you can, I recommend waiting at least a few more months before deciding which 4k screen to purchase. We know that at least ASUS is planning to come out with a 39" 4k screen (using the same VA panel as the $700 39" Seiki), and so it's probably worth waiting to see how that comes out (Q1 2014 is the supposed release for that).

However, if you really want the nicer panel quality and don't like the thought of a VA panel, I am unaware of anything that is likely to really usurp the IGZO PQ321Q in the next year. In that case, so long as you have the cash and know you're probably paying at least a $1500 early adopter premium, the PQ321Q is a good purchase if you have the GPU muscle to power it smile.gif

I personally have a hard time justifying >$1500 for any screen, so I'm holding out

Just my 2cents.gif

If you're lucky Korean manufacturers may start on 4K screens. iirc someone on OCN was looking into getting 4K monitors made, and it only came to 300USD, but I'm not sure what happened to that.
