[Forbes] Dell Wasn't Joking About That 28-Inch Sub-$1000 4K Monitor; It's Only $699 - Page 8

post #71 of 194
i know the new asus 4k 28" is a 60hz TN 1ms panel for $799. I don't know if i can justify TN above $300 though, but it is better on paper then this dell.

Both have a AG coating too...sigh I may even consider that Asus 1440p gsync 120hz monitor now instead of jumping into 4k.

1440p is where it's at imo. DPI support is better and you can actually play over 60fps.

While I am super excited that 4k is getting cheaper, I dont see a reason to replace a 1600P 30" with this.

In 2-3 years when you see a 120hz IPS 4k 36" monitor for this price (please please please let me get what I want) I be so excited.

also by then, GPUs will be able to push those pixels for a reasonable price.

360GB!

The only real content provider who could provide 4K would have been Blockbusters, they would have had to replace everything with HDD`s
They would probably have had to come up with a box that you play the hdd in with AES encryption built in.
Tough one to try though, alot of money to invest!!

This latest update has ruined my day.

I wanted a new monitor to replace my current tv/pc monitor combo display, which I'm beginning to realise that it's essentially a 23" TV with PC inputs lol (got it free).

I want the Good colours, High resolution, 60hz, 27"+, I play mostly single player games...any recommendations? I was thinking the Viewsonic VP2770-LED.

I thought I remember reading they would be about 50GB...or maybe that was just the Sony 4k movies that you could download.

There's no way those parts are going to be God-Tier. Not a chance.

Panel cartel (Samsung, Hitachi, Sharp, LG Displays, Toshiba, Chunghwa Picture Tubes, HannStar Display Corp., Chi Mei Optoelectronics, and AU Optronics) maybe decided they don't have to gouge as hard (http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1323418571 , http://consumerist.com/2013/01/04/china-smacks-samsung-lg-with-35-million-fine-for-fixing-prices-of-lcd-panels/)

also it's 30Hz TN :/
