    Thanks. Do you have the exact monitor ? What's the refresh rate at 1080 and 1440 please?

    I do have the one. 60Hz on both when using HDMI, but I'm pretty sure you can get more out of it using DP.
    Also, it doesn't look that sharp on 1080P and 1440p though....

    Obviously not when compared to 2160P ;)

    @OP - Yes, I have 2 of them and it's 60Hz (as the other guy said).

    For 2160P you'll need to use DP for 60Hz.

    You can run @ 2160P through HDMI but it is noticeably slow and there is input lag (30Hz)

    I wonder how far you can reach in terms of refresh rate if you use 1080p? Ethne can you please try? 75Hz without frameskipping would sounds good for a start. http://www.testufo.com photo with high exposure time / low shutter speed to show as many boxes in sequence as possible. At least 5 is great since frameskipping from 75Hz to 60Hz would mean that every 5th frame gets skipped.

    Hey Yasamoka :)

    Using DP it is limited to 60Hz, even @ 1080P :(

    It's possible, but the monitor is only rated to 60Hz.

    I don't really want to mess with that as whenever I do anything with those monitors, it screws up my desktop scaling.

    Isn't it a TN panel? How does it compare with the Va and IPS panels at 1440P? Basically is
    TN @ 2160 > VA/IPS @1440

    For what it costs, it's not a bad monitor.

    I've had several 4K monitors to this point and it's one of the better ones I've had.

    Saying that, The Sammys are on my secondary box and in my office now.

    They are great in terms of pure screen real estate but we need a lot more GPU horsepower in terms of gaming.

    Even with 3 Titans, some older games were not holding 60 FPS (Mafia 2 being an example).

    Compared to my ZR30W for example, the U28D590D is not as clean and the colors are not as sharp but as I said, it's pretty good for the price.

    At this point, I would choose a large size 1440P/1600P monitor over any of the 4K offerings out there in terms of gaming.

    For productivity, ASUS has a really nice 4K IPS monitor (part of their Pro Art series) coming this month I believe, the only downside being that it will be around $2200 if memory serves.
