If you want to be sure, test it yourself.

I give you, jaggies 6JqcxAJs.jpg (click on the image and view at full size).
Now grab a tape measurer and measure the distance from your monitor that the jaggies blur out, then divide that number by the distance you normally sit from your screen. Then calculate your screen density with this caculator, and multiply your screen DPI (PPI) by the amount that you need to divide the jaggie blurring distance to get back to your normal sitting position.
And there you go, you have your ideal screen density.

For my uses a 30 inch 8K monitor would be ideal.
Of course I'd still like a 240hz monitor with lower resolution for some things, I just hope we can eventually have options for the full range of potential use cases.

This stuff happens. Bankruptcies, natural disasters, trade policies, politics, (and very sadly) war, are some of the real-world examples of factors that affect economic changes. Usually, however, disturbances are adapted to, and over time recovered from. Just understand that while businesses will be affected by the Hanjin bankruptcy in the short term, someone will come along with a similar business model to take its place and things will likely go back to normal.

TL;DR: This stuff happens. I would highly recommend NOT purchasing technology out of fear in the short-term, as that could be what companies want you to do. It's like making a run for gas. Just hang on, it'll fix itself. Keep a level-head, wait until Black Friday/Boxing Day if you really need something techy, but if you ever get worried about the prices of a 4K tv or a brand new car, remind yourself that life is short and there are more important things.

It's never a bad idea to step back and be grateful that you're even in the position to be concerned about such things like this in the first place.

Sounds overblown. Korean stuff may increase in price, but this shouldn't affect anything manufactured and shipped from anywhere else.

I am actually quite interested in the supply chain area of business, so here are some interesting facts that you may not know about Hanjin that will shed a better light on why product prices may increase (and then swiftly normalize) in the coming months in America:

  • Hanjin supplied 8% of American import products.
  • Most American business are in the process of stocking up for the Holiday Season right now. Hanjin's bankruptcy will really throw a wrench into that process. Black Friday sales might not be as good this year.
  • Hanjin (being one of the 10 largest container shipping companies in the world) will most likely be bought out (or at least parts of it will be bought) by the South Korean government or some other shipping company like Hyundai, etc. Or if the South Korean court it filed bankruptcy with decides it is to be dissolved then I assume that their assets will be auctioned off at very low prices.
  • On the day following Hanjin's bankruptcy getting a container shipped to US went up 35%.


In my opinion I would have to say that this increase in shipping prices is only a temporary spike. In terms of capacity Hanjin was the 8th largest container shipping company in the world so in comparison to a company like Maersk (the #1 largest) going bankrupt, losing Hanjin is not the worst that could happen. In the end I think product pricing will not increase enough to deter customers from purchasing them.

Hanjin didn't operate just in Korea.
