Philips rolled out a new 28-inch desktop monitor, the 284E5QHAD. Not to be confused with its path-breaking 28-inch Ultra HD monitor or another 27-incher with G-Sync, the 284E5QHAD is a mainstream full HD (1920 x 1080-pixel) display. Equipped with an MVA display panel, its only highlight is MHL (mobile high-definition link) connectivity. Its other vital-stats include 5 ms response time, 176°/176° viewing angles, 300 cd/m² maximum brightness, and dynamic mega-contrast ratio, and a rather powerful 14W stereo speakers. Apart from MHL, its connectivity options include HDMI, DVI, and D-Sub (VGA). Available now, it's priced around $400.

When will monitor manufactures wake up & they finally work out that people dont want 1080P resolutions any more.

I'm saving for the £500 (hopefully) 4K Dell monitor thats out next month.

I'd get a 2560x1440 monitor instead, that Dell is a 30Hz monitor. Which could be fine, depending on what you're after.

I hear ya. I think I'm going to start saving for a Vizio P series myself. Still waiting on reviews to see how those pan out. Kinda bummed that it looks like it will be next year at the earliest when we get ips, fald (fully-array backlight with decent local dimming zones), next-gen dp (for even higher refresh rates), perhaps a settled standard for refresh rates/fps (like g-sync, although some companies do weird proprietary crap) and 3D (hopefully decently passive if not glasses-free) with 4k....probably another year until any of that is remotely reasonable in price from a reputable company. Not because most of it is expensive, but because they all seem to be concentrated on making displays 'smart'.

You want companies to realize people don't want HD anymore...I want companies to realize people want the best possible core display, not freaking computers inside a screen.

(Some may say 'Hey, that's the difference of aims between a tv and a monitor'...but really, these days...there is little difference when everyone has some sort of box that connects to their display and it can play media/games of some sort either locally or from the internet; less and less of it has to do with a connection to the broadcast system and most agree they don't need these features from their display itself as they are redundant and overwhelmingly inferior.)
