    Announced about a month ago, Dell's first 28-inch monitor with a 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) has now been confirmed to arrive in stores in two weeks' time (on January 23rd), priced at $699. Known as P2815Q, this Ultra HD display is said to feature an IPS LED-backlit panel and a stand allowing pivot and height adjustment.

    Dell hasn't shared much in terms of specs but if it's similar to the company's other 4K offerings, the P2815Q should have an 8 ms response time, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, and HDMI and DisplayPort (maybe even mini DisplayPort) connectivity.

    Oh yes,.....it will be mine,.....

    I was expect it to cost ~$999. I think I might buy this one on day one if the reviews are good,.... ;)

    Same, their 30" panels are usually more than this, and they're larger screens with lower pixel density.

    Looks like a good value actually.

    In contrast I have just heard Asus will have an ROG Swift PG278Q 2560x1440 120 Hz G-Sync monitor for ~$799,....



    I'll take the 4K for ~$699 personally and if the price is right this is a great day for monitors and pricing IMO.

    I was really excited about this monitor until I read it's going to utilize a TN panel (like the other budget 4K monitors).

    Sounds like Forbes is getting the incorrect information from one of their higher-tier 4K monitors. :shadedshu:

    From the news post: "this Ultra HD display is said to feature an IPS LED-backlit panel and a stand allowing pivot and height adjustment."

    So, it's an IPS panel at 4k resolution.

    EDIT: I see where the issue is. Yeah, no confirmation on IPS panel. All other info (price of display) is pointing to this being a VA panel, not IPS.

    I could give 2 shits about 4k, unless the screen is 120" diagonally.

    Price seems too good to be true. I'm hoping there aren't any gotchas.

    I'm also hoping for a G-Sync 3840x1600 21:9 but oh well. :laugh:

    LOL, that would likely be a 4K UHDTV not a PC monitor,.... You knew this was a PC monitor before you clicked on the link,...no,....?

    I actually bought a Seiki Digital SE39UY04 39” 4K UHDTV off of Amazon for ~$489 USD and played with it for a little while. It was nice, the 30Hz didn’t bother me at all, however it was a bit bigger then what I needed. The color calibration was a bit off too.

    I was going to give it to my Wife but she didn’t want it so I gave it to my sister as a Christmas present. That was about the time that the price dropped to ~$405 USD (for a short while).

    Generally speaking I figured I could do better in early 2014 since all signs seemed to indicate that would be the case. If the price on the Dell P2815Q pans out in the USA then I would say I was right to wait.
    I have no indication one way or the other but I’m betting we’ll see HDMI 2.0 support since it seems to be coming out on newer devices. If not then the lower then expected price still makes it worthwhile IMO.

    I'm going to be all over this one,......day one,....

    I expect prices to spike at some point though even if it does come in at ~$699 USD. I've seen it happen before with products with a low MSRP but high consumer demand.

    There are TN 1440p monitors out there much more expensive than this! Let's hope for a price war after this one will be released. Hurry up Dell!! ;)

    This is one of the few CES released that I'm actually excited about. Looking forward to buying one...

    Of course I did. I have a 1920x1600 24" screen in front of me now, about 24" from my face... and I can't see a single pixel! Give me an OLED screen instead.

    I like this but I can't get past the 8 ms response time. I have the Dell U2713HM and I love it but I was hoping to get a 4K monitor that is IPS and has at least 4-5 ms response time. At this point, I am hoping that the ASUS ROG monitor is an IPS or even highest quality TN panel so I can get it.

    Oh god 30 Hz TN panel? What was Dell thinking?

    TN is a no go for productivity that require some kind of color accuracy and 30 Hz is irrelevant to gamers.

    This thing will probably just sell to people who could care less about checking the technologies behind because it has the 4K tag.

    Could have a niche usage for some people though...

    Regarding the 30Hz, have any 3840x2160 panels come out that can be logically addressed as one panel at 60Hz? Rather than 2 logical panels (so-called "tiled") at 60Hz?

    DP 1.2 is perfectly capable of 4K at 60Hz, so I'm assuming the issue is with the panels' guts and not the cards' output?

    It's unfortunate that it's a 30hz panel with awful response time IPS (or whatever) be damned. I saw that price, and that resolution and my eyes lit up. But I see that my next monitor is going to be a bit more ($500-) then what I'm willing. So for now a 1ms 27inch TN panel is my paradise.
