    The Philips UltraClear Display debuts today, combining 4K UHD high resolution with a color depth of 1.07 billion colors to deliver brilliant performance, screen clarity and detail with four times the resolution of Full HD. Whether you require extremely detailed information for CAD-CAM solutions, use 3D graphic applications or are a financial wizard working on huge spreadsheets, this Philips display will provide UltraClear 3840×2160 pixel images to meet the visual demands of the most sophisticated power user. The 28-inch monitor (model 288P6) is also ideal for those seeking superb onscreen clarity and color accuracy for personal applications, and includes built-in stereo speakers for multimedia and MHL technology for easy mobile device connectivity.

    Designed with the user in mind, the Philips UltraClear Display provides a plethora of connectivity options and comes equipped with HDMI, DisplayPort, Dual-link DVI and VGA SmartConnect ports, enabling the enjoyment of high resolution uncompressed video and audio content. USB 3.0 ensures super speed data transfers and smartphone charging while having global connectivity. Additionally, an integrated MHL port allows users to connect compatible phones and tablets directly to the monitor to mirror content to the widescreen display while charging the mobile device at the same time.

    The Philips UltraClear Display also features MultiView functionality. This technology enables active dual connect and view so that users can work with multiple devices like PC and laptop side-by-side simultaneously, making complex multi-tasking work a breeze. With the Ultra HD Philips MultiView display, you can now experience a world of connectivity in a comfortable way whether at office or at home.

    Another people-friendly feature is the advanced SmartErgoBase, which allows the monitor to be lowered down almost to desk level for a comfortable viewing angle. Low bezel-to-table height is the perfect solution for those who use bifocals, trifocals or progressive lens glasses for computing work. Additionally, the adjustable base allows for users of greatly different heights to use the monitor in their preferred angle and height settings, helping them reduce fatigue and strain. The SmartErgoBase's height, swivel, tilt and rotation angle adjustments position the monitor for maximum comfort, while its cable management function reduces cable clutter and keeps the workspace neat and professional.

    The Philips UltraClear Display will be available in spring 2014 for $1,199.99 MSRP.

    10 bit is useless with a W-LED illumination. For that price at least they should had RGB-LED backlighting...

    Glad to see there is going to be some competition in the 4K market. Another 28" 4K, probably the same panel as the Lenovo, but a much higher price. And the marketing is very "workstation" "professional" but at an enthusiast price. I would therefore assume (since there are no PR shots with games or video), that the refresh rates are low, e.g. 30fps, or the grey-to-grey is slow.

    I'm OK with 30fps/Hz for the 4K... SO LONG AS if you feed it a 1K signal (ie 1920x1080 input)), it can scale it and maintain 60fps+/Hz to deliver decent video and game play. The 4K can be for "productivity" applications, and the 1K for gaming.

    30 fps is a serious too little of any serious multiplayer game. If we take into account FPS games at all. It is necessary to take into account that even for such a FPS need a very powerful multi-GPU support. And here is the biggest problem in the transmission of data to the monitor through the existing outputs on the GPU. Thunderbolt 2 would be able to perform the task. A conversion would only require a considerable backlog and synchronization technology is in its early stages. I want to have such a monitor, the price is currently too high no matter that decreases the lack of necessary support is a major problem because you can not connect these three monitors at the highest resolution and play the game smooth (60 FPS).

    Dell's 28" 4K monitor was supposed to be about ~$1000. I think I am more interested in the Dell.

    You will have a blurring mess on your eyes, trust me. On LCDs running any games in other resolution except native, will result in a huge disaster on the screen.

    An integer multiple/divisor should be OK. Depends on how the TFT/internal scaling chipset has been designed.

    Just so you all are aware, this monitor has 80hz Refresh rate @ 3840 x 2160.

    It also has a 1ms G2G response time which is phenomenally good for something like this.

    It needs DP 1.2a to do that resolution though.

    Source is that I work for an Australian Distributor for Philips.

    This monitor is 2K vertically and 4K Horizontally. This monitor is classed as 4K like all other 4K TV and displays it's not actually 4000p in any way.

    This product is 4K and is the cheapest product to be announced as of yet, RRP in Australia is $999.

    Cheers,

    K is horzizonal, p is vertical.

    Originally 4K is 4096 × 2160 17.1:9(1.9:1) for cinemas, 3840 × 2160 is 16:9(1.78:1) for consumers.

    I have one. I bought it for Blender work, but also thought it would be ok for gaming since it was boasting gtg of 5ms.

    Unfortuantely, it is worthless for serious gaming... What is never mentioned in the information is the > 100ms input lag. This makes it display with a delay of over 6 frames... It is nearly impossible to use for action games.

    For work, yes, by all means.
    For games? The input lag has completely nullified any benefit of response time.
    For graphics? Only if you don't mind TN's inherent weaknesses.

    Seem over priced to me comparing it to the Asus, but maybe some more details will provide a reason for the pricing.
