    $700.00 for an 28 inch 4K monitor shows that the prices for 4k monitors is getting more reasonable.

    Yea man, can't wait for that!

    I could have afforded one a month ago damn, but then i would have had a crappy PC now tho haha.

    And it wouldn't run 4K good at all...

    I'm gonna say this for the people in the cheap seats: that's not 4K, that's quad HD.

    It's more like 4xHD, because last time I checked 3840 lines does not equal 4 thousand.

    This: link is 4K. You can tell, because the resolution is 4096 × 2160

    nice monitor though...

    Actually 3840x2160 is 4K! It retains the 16:9 aspect ratio, 4096x2160 does not. The term '4K' doesn't explicitly imply 4096x2160, it's just an imprecise marketing term.

    For HD (1920x1080), you don't really go around saying 2K do you? Yet, if you look at just the term 2K and 4K, it would suggest to people that didn't know any better that 3840x2160 is only twice as high of a resolute as 1920x1080, where in fact it is four times the resolution.

    4k

    Yes it is a called 4k screen. Just because its not running the cinemascope aspect ratio used in theaters, doesn't change that.
    One of the reasons why sony calls there tvs 4k UltraHD, to separate them from the 4k resolution in theaters.

    Doubt it is a native/one panel screen, they still go for around 2500-3000$.

    And what is samsung doing 4k wise, besides making panels.
    They dont shoot 4k nor have they any other background with it, but claiming to be the leader?!
    Like apple trying to sell me a car. Not gonna happen...

    For those who are going "awww yiss" now, remember that this is a 28" TN panel.

    Want 4K urgently and can put up with TN at huge sizes? Sure.

    Um, aspect ratios have nothing to do with resolution.

    It's either:

    2160P, Quad HD, Ultra HD - take your pick tv manufacturers, but don't come at me with 4K or I'll spend every day in your shops telling your staff they are wrong, or play dumb and say it doesn't make sense. Repeatably. Over and over again. Whilst shaking my head...and using a calculator and showing it to your staff. Maybe I'll roll my eyes and mumble/mutter under my breath.

    No dvi input, 1ms is nice but it's only a TN hence the cheapish price. Waiting for Asus to release that 1440p display @ 144hz that should do me fine :)

    Aren't these panels using some kind of IPS panel?

    It's a weird name, i can't remember, i've heard the Asus has it and has 1ms response time.

    If it does use TN, it won't look good with that size.

    You couldn't be more wrong, 4K originated from cinema and film, UHD is for consumers.
    Aspect ratios have nothing to do with it, in fact cinema always had a different aspect ratio than consumer appliances: 16:9 (1.78:1) vs 2.35:1.

    4k content is 4096x not 3840x.
    Here, educate yourself a bit.

    Why did you tell him to educate himself when he posted exactly what was in the article?

    Geez take a chill pill people! ;). I did say imprecise marketing term, and that is exactly what it is. In monitor sense, 4K is 3840x2160, it retains 16:9. The 4K comes from 3840 being close to 4000. It's not unlike the imprecise marketing of drives. In no reference to 4K in reference to monitors have I seen it as anything else than 3840x2160.

    Yes, I do know it's not proper 4K in the cinema sense, but who cares? It's not as if the extra 256 horizontal pixels will make a drastic difference to picture quality. Even though 2160p is more precise, people see it as twice the resolution, not 4x. By saying 4K, from a marketing perspective it sounds more impressive. Yes it's not correct, but so many marketing things aren't precise.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but I must be missing something you are not saying about aspect ratios and resolution.

    1920x1080 is a television resolution that migrated to computer screens because it's cheaper to bulk purchase that resolution from the panel manufacturers of LCD tech. The actual computer/monitor resolution is 1920x1200...so what we got here is history repeating itself with the first monitors using the panel tech available for televisions.

    And...if you divide 16 by 9, you get the actual aspect ratio; 1.78:1

    16:10 is rather dead physical aspect ratio (I also got rather annoyed since some games even forced black bars). It was quite common when first 1920x1xx0 monitors popped up but these days they are rather uncommon. I am quite sure that we will barely see those screens any more. As far as I can see, history is not repeating itself. It is more like the opposite. On PC resolution equals aspect ratio mainly because screen that does not do pixel perfect output would be rather useless in many situations. For TV's it does not matter much.
