Benchmark Scores benchmarks passed, that I care about: 1)silence; 2)small space taken; 3)cpu 100% satble load 24/7
sure thing - I bought my 1080 3-4 years ago (like most of avarage Joes). what - do you expect me to buy a brand new 1080? or to spend like 500$ on monitor that gives me a extra few pixes (1440 or 1600) or some refreshrate that is good only for gaming (no movies will ever be released on those resolutions). give us UHD and make it mainstream and you will get paid from all of us (avarage Joe's)

Well I think the prices are a matter of trend. Generally speaking QHD TVs and monitors are still never below $550 (At least in my area), let alone 4K. In my Opinion, this trend will change when a popular brand-named smartphone company releases a QHD Phone. I mean the 4K shooting smartphones are now a trend, it's a good start, but not enough to bring prices down. We really need to see QHD-res phones and it is rumored that LG is developing on one and releasing it on May. Good news there!
