    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU M8!!!

    i am writing this from a 39" 1920x1080 monitor about 40" from my face and i love the damn thing... I do not understand what all this fuzz about pixel density is in these days...

    The only thing i might find it usefull is for productivity so that you can have multiple windows open in less space, but then again i have 2x22"(stacked) on one side of my 39" and a 20" on the other. I bought them all second hand from ebay and they cost me less than a 4k monitor...

    here they are...
    [​IMG]

    Maybe they need to sell new monitors and came up with 4k to do so... It also helps to sell graphics cards to support gaming in this resolution as well...

    Personally i prefer gaming in a huge hdtv with my sli gtx660ti rig than pay for a much smaller 4k plus 2000$ on dual graphics cards to be able to do the same thing on a smaller display... but then again it's just me...

    so... From what I have been reading... most of the panels are tiled... and can be driven by 1 hdmi at 30Hz or 2 hdmi for 60Hz... or 1 DP 1.2 at 60Hz (using its multistream)


    Having tiled displays is Very much HDMI's fault.
    In its current state it simply does not have the bandwidth for over 30hz at 4k.

    DP 1.2 can do 60Hz 4k, and DP 1.3 can do 8k 60Hz or 4k 120Hz for 3d purposes.
    Supposedly DP is going to make its way to TVs this year. I can't wait for hdmi to die.

    Don't be pulling down a man's dreams of grandure, we all have tech goals.

    TN panel, 30hz. Just no.

    Agree. It's better to spend $300 more for a ViewSonic VX2880ml 4K monitor. It has 50M:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio and 2 ms response time.

    I'm looking forward to REVIEWS, and a stop to all this prejudiced commenting based on assumptions and peoples desire for "gaming" TFTs at 120Hz. I'm glad technology is improving, and the market is finally offering more options. 30Hz is more than good enough for non-gaming applications.

    I don't get the pixel density craze either, I rather have them focus on OLED, higher refresh rates, and reducing input lag.
    Do people realize what kind of graphics card setup they will need in order to game at a respectable framerate on 4k?
    Power consumption will likely go up as well.
    Personally I would rather invest that money in a 5760x1080 setup (like 3x U2414H's).

    Monitors are designed for more than just gaming purposes. Pixel density has many uses beyond making games look shiny.

    Yes, at least people aren't bitching about missing 120 pixels vertically anymore :p

    I am well aware of that ;)
    Still I am not convinced of the need of crazy high ppi's.
    My main monitor only has a ppi of 89, but at 50 cm you still have a bloody hard time spotting the individual pixels.

    I wonder if this monitor will be made from two tiles or a single panel?

    I won't consider any monitor that's made from tiles.

    I can only think of one monitor that was made up of different physical displays, and as far as I know, it's no longer on the market. Of course it doesn't use more than one display.

    Yea, the cheapest 4k monitor out there right now is the UP2414Q atleast to my knowledge. And that does 4k @60hz via DisplayPort

    Maybe,....

    A monitor upgrade is only half an upgrade and conversely a video card upgrade is only half an upgrade as well. One has to start somewhere or one could upgrade both at the same time. I'm personally not worried about it at this time. If I want to upgrade my video subsystem on this given system or on another system I can do that. However, I think you are making an assumption that I want this 4K monitor to play games on and that isn't exactly the case. As I have stated before, I've already owned a Seiki Digital SE39UY04 39" UHDTV and I was basically OK with it even at 30Hz. My GTX 670 did indeed "drive it" just fine and performed the tasks I required of it admirably.

    I still need to see the full specs and get an idea of what the Dell P2815Q will actually do as well as its actual street price. I'll take in all the rumors and bits of credible information now but what really matters is what happens on the day of release,....real street price,....real specs. I say this because I have seen reasonably priced products quickly become unreasonably priced on release day despite the MSRP presumably based on supply and demand issues. I've also seen the specs of a product change before release (like a feature dropped).

    Anyway, in all likelihood I'll probably give the 4K monitor to my Wife which will free up her 2560x1440 monitor. Which in turn I can use that 2560x1440 monitor in a different computers multi- monitor setup,...

    but anyway,....

    Sure,....

    I play games but I don't let it motivate all my computer hardware choices and purchases. Gaming isn't the only thing I do on a computer and it isn't the only thing I care about.

    Where are all these complaints coming from? What's the problem with giving consumers choice? 4k is excellent for those that want it. For those that don't, 1080p will be around for a long time.

    I'd like to see a 4k IPS display capable of 120hz together with appropriate cable technology.

    I can't believe how badly the HDMI group has dropped the ball. Wow.

    For gaming, the gsync monitor from Asus is a better buy. I was running my Up2414q off hdmi(which is limited to 30hz) for about 10 minutes out of ignorance. It was awe full in games.

    This means that the price for 1440p monitors will come down as well???
    I'm in a market now for a 27 or a 29 incher with 1440p, but the prices are still ridiculous...

    Text, documents, code, photos, graphic design, etc. - pretty much the kinds of things that everybody except you do. While I agree that this monitor is crap (30 Hz will make me want to pick my eyes out with a fondue fork, and I'm sure graphic artists will just love the TN panel), I am glad that somebody finally got it through their thick skulls that some people would enjoy looking at a screen with a decent DPI.

    I do all of those and don't require anymore pixels. I would complain most vehemently if I was forced to have 1080 rows instead of 1200!

    why is everyone saying this is 30 Hz? Am I missing something? Nowhere here or on other sites seems to be stated that this will be 30 Hz and Display Port 1.2 can drive 4k @60Hz so what's all this about?!
