    Dual link dvi has been doing 3840x2160@60Hz far quite a while now. I would really rather hope DP could handle it.

    Is it only me who noticed people started demanding higher resolution and pixel densities after apple released 'retina' display products?

    Not really. Not only because for gaming a bigger res that HD is a killer for GPU, but also for the eyes....Currently not even Win 7/8 cannot scale properly high DPI font setting in desktop. Java, Flash and ActiveX craps are DISASTER. Besides higher res means smaller stuff on the screen = bad for your eyes. Again Windows is not like iOS or Android to show the same proportions despite the resolution ;) :shadedshu

    You can change the size between 100% (default), 125% and 150% and it works perfectly, so I don't know what you're talking about. Maybe not as perfect as the other OS, but you can always find a setup that works fine. For 4k monitors it might not be enough scaling, but for 1440/1600p is more than enough. Future Ted will take care of 4k monitors (reference to How I Met Your Mother).

    There's no single port that does that, but use a few dual-link DVI interleaved (same principle as Eyefinity/3DVS). It's how large format high-res screens (think NASA mission control) work.

    Aaa, noup, it doesn't work. At least not properly. Trust me, I have 5+ years experience with this on a laptop with 1200p resolution, and if I put more than 115 DPI (custom), everything is a complete mess.

    Well, it works perfectly for everyone except you. I'm sorry, but stating that anything beyond 1080p produces worse quality is complete BS. And I've been using 1600x1200, 1920x1440 or 2048x1536 for over a decade (CRT) and later also 1080p and 1600p and what you say it's again complete BS.

    That's not what I meant, you are just twisting my words. Go bother someone else please.

    So you say it's a disaster, it doesn't work properly and it's a complete mess, plus it's bad for the eyes (your own words)... but I'm twisting your words? How does not all that translate into a worse quality desktop experience if I may ask?

    But scaling isn't very good in Windows 7, I thought that was more or less common knowledge. It works pretty good, but it's far from perfect.

    I note that the discussion turned to a subject other than what lets suggest the title. And even if the topic is quite old, I will participate
    because I just bought this monitor (xl2411t), and frankly there is nothing to say except that this is an excellent product for gaming, and
    especially for those who want to try stereoscopic 3D.I would also say that a 24-inch screen is perfect for Full-HD resolution, because beyond pixels appear larger (pitch).

    Otherwise, I am very satisfied with my purchase and I even just publish a full review about this monitor for those who still hesitate to buy it.
