BigMack70 actually it is quite different from the 1440p screen space... 1440p screens are expensive because, you guessed it, of their panel type (ips/pls)


There is a good chance that a 4k va panel will be quite a bit less expensive than the $2k mark. Now, could they through features or just pure markup charge that much or more? of course... but there are no technological reasons for the price to be that high

They'll add useless crap a better shell and foot the markup the price for brand and service (I can't really advise buying such expensive screens to anyone)
It isn't that much different from the 1440p screens being overpriced by brands (slightly better caps and a different shell doesn't justify the price)

What do you expect they are the cheapest so no the support won't be good but you'll get very good price/perf

I would like to see you push 4K UHD 60Hz over HDMi 1.4 xD (not with half refreshes interpolation isn't what I'm talking about)

Even the Seiki with its stock transceiver board doesn't drop the frames but it definity has issues. (a amount of blur that makes it look like you upsampeld 800x600 to 1920x1080 then downsampled to 1280x768.)
