    Well at that res you do not need more unless you are gaming everything @ low settings with 780 ti sli or 290x xfire.

    And that display has everything else going for it compared to pretty much anything since it is 10bit panel.

    Well, agreed, but a fallback to 120Hz @ 1920x1080 would be a nice feature to add, along with lag close to zero.

    120Hz with ips capable of 10bit is rather non existent :eek: or normal ips even too, except for korean overclockable displays :p

    While input lag can be zero and could be. that response time is good for anyone.

    For that price... 28'', 10bit color UHD seems very good.... hope for a review of this tbh :)

    well thinking about 10-bit it's most certainly an IPS and since that 60Hz more or less likely.

    last thinkvision i had was a 22" LED panel that died after 6 months of usage the screen developed lines and text was unreadable unless i lowered the resolution to 1280x800 from 1680x1050 and increased the text dpi to 150%

    unfortunately the store i bought from went bust a few weeks after purchase and i had no luck with the manufacturer. i went and bought an second hand acer v193w for £20 that not only has better colours but also looks better in games and movies

    Only? When are you going to use 120hz or whatever at that resolution?

    The stand looks like a really small hat with a very wide brim!

    awwww yiss.

    loving the significant drop in UHD monitor pricing!

    this would go down a treat for my home machine, as i use it to run server labs for studying. would be nice to have a few servers with a useable resolution on screen at once without overlapping!

    want!

    The Dell is a no go for most gamer i thing.
    "Unfortunately, it tops out at 30Hz 3840 x 2160 and 60Hz for 1920 x 1080"

    Didn't know that, I thought it was 60Hz - If that's the case Ill just grab one of the other brands.

    EDIT:

    According to what I've read, It is 60hz at 4k using DP so all good as my video cards have DP.

    So 30Hz might be with HDMI then? I just quoted from the linked article.. Oh and it's an TN panel :bang:

    I wish more would invest in OLED, but 4K is so hyped up now that this is where they can make money.. Wonder if there will be big issues with bleeding and gray blacks on these 4K monitors.. That's not an issue with OLED??

    It turns out that it is 30Hz @ 4k, guess I won't be buying Dell.
