    $2k is "a good price" for wide gamut 4k pro screen.

    Really ugly monitor. Who in the hell designed it? Whoever did should be shot.

    Actually the design is not so bad.. at all.. well pictures dont really help. ( I will have maybe not do the bezel with a titanium color )

    But actually 2050$ for a monitor who pack so much professional features, 4K PLS, etc its not really high priced... well it is not made for gaming.

    I think it looks pretty great, especially if you remove the stand. The price though isn't as pretty.

    Who cares about the backside and it design.
    If the frontside offers what i want (or need) that is all i would care about.
    After all it is just the screen on the frontside you'll be working with, and i dont see any out of the ordinary there in this case.

    Just my two cents :)

    $2k and you don't even get HDMI 2.0? WTF?

    This is the only monitor I've seen posted on Guru3D that is actually any good. ...Assuming the black levels are good, this might be something worth upgrading from my Pioneer KURO 500M. But nope, I'm going to wait until GPU's catch up to 4K gaming. Plus my 500M is still going strong, and I'm still satisfied with 1080p on a 50" monitor.

    i can get a sony 55in 4K for 1699 (X850A) or h.265 ready (X850B) for 1899 and they can do 4K@60 with HDMI 2.0 and have almost identical specs when it comes to color and are calibrated as well.
    but the build in upscaling will make a big difference when it comes to non-4k res.

    Yes, it was the hideous bezel colour I was referring to. It would look so much better in black as the current titanium colour is distracting.
