The cost for 4K monitors at this size...
Has more to do with panel type than panel size. IGZO is expensive... VA or something similar would be much, much cheaper.

Just need someone willing to release a 4k monitor not aimed at professional use. Hopefully the 39" 4k VA panel ASUS is developing will fit the bill.

I'm sure you're right about that.

All I was trying to say was that the 31.5" Asus PQ321 4K monitor is about ~$3800 USD and I expect the 32" Dell to be similarly priced (guessing they use similar tech).

I wasn't trying to draw a comparison between the cheaper Seiki UHDTVs because they are clearly in a different quality category and use different tech.

even still your comparing apples to oranges, the textures aren't as detailed in mobile games hence more jagged edges
Man, what do the textures have to do with jaggies?? Seriously now

Is this going to cost the same (or more) as the 32" ASUS 4K monitor? It uses the same panel so I fear it will, but we really need to start seeing some affordable 4K/60Hz devices.

It's really a shame that Seiki insists on limiting their 4K TVs to HDMI @ 30 Hz. They could probably double sales if they added a MST DisplayPort input (even if that meant hiking the price by ~$100). The truth is that 4K isn't really that important for direct-view TV sets, but it can make a real difference in computer monitors.

The pending 39" ASUS 4K monitor has the potential to be really great. The size means that someone who wants a large workspace could probably get away with leaving DPI scaling at 100% (avoiding compatibility issues), since it will only have about 110 DPI. And the VA panel will hopefully bring prices down compared to the Sharp IGZO panel that they charge an arm and a leg for.

For some reason I thought Sony released a 30Hz 4K UHDTV as well. Not sure on that one. Anyway, I guess my question would be do 4K UHDTV units really need something greater then 30Hz at native resolution for what little 4K media there is?

Seiki is releasing 4K UHDTV models not 4K PC monitors so I don't think they are doing anything wrong or out of step. The problem comes in when an enthusiast wants to use such an UHDTV in a way it wasn't necessarily intended to be used and hits that 30Hz limit at 3840x2160.

Personally I think I can live with a Seiki 4K UHDTV as a PC monitor at 30Hz for some types of desktop work but probably not for gaming. So I guess I could lower the resolution to 1920x1080 at 120Hz for that. However, I have heard that the Seiki UHDTV models will do 2560x1440 at ~88Hz or so. Not sure how the weak scaler would do at those settings though and the image quality might (likely) leave something to be desired.

I probably would have bought a Seiki already but I have noticed that conventional HDTV models have dropped in price. For the same ~$700 USD the 39" model goes for I've come across 50" smartTV name brand models with 3D support and 6 free pair of 3D glasses.

BTW, some Media Center software will spit out an error message when something greater then 1920x1080 is detected.

Too bad the Seiki panel is crap so its not really an option unless you don't care about color reproduction.

This on the other hand I'm fairly sure it's gonna be awesome.

It's an Ultrasharp, they are always awesome, meant for photoshop etc, so good color reproduction is a must.

What I like most about the ultrasharp is the zeropixel warranty.

Dell swapped my pixel defective U3011 in 1 day with a new one without questions.

Let's hope it doesn't cost more than 2-2.5k :)
