Personally I'm more intrigued by LG's 34" 21:9 not-quite-4K monitor at almost $900 cheaper.

You're better off with the ASUS.

 

Support for 4K monitors, both by hardware and software, is quite flaky at the moment.

I can't remember, is that monitor running at 30Hz or 60Hz? I did research into that a few months ago :rofl:

 

I remember HDMI before 2.0 didn't like to send 4K at 60Hz so the screen was limited to display port at 60Hz or HDMI / DVI at 30Hz and created an odd flicker

 

I might of been thinking of the lower end Dell 4K screen, they had two or three at the time?

You say a 28" TN is preferable to a 32" IPS because @4k fonts etc. are unreadable (tho they look OK to me)?

 

I well heart this Dell!

Ok ok what's the big deal with 4k monitors?

I don't get it.

Based on my personal experience I own a Dell 24" with 1920x1200 resolution.

All the text and icons are so small and I have to zoom webpages and increase my dpi to 150%.

 

So I suppose, if you use a 4K monitor, things will be much smaller, right?

UltraRetina maaaaannnnnn..... wait *snaps out of the apple marketing hype mode* It's good if you work a lot with graphics mainly vector ones hopefully OS's will scale better...

 

heck I remember when Vista was in alpha and we thought the UI would be Vector based.... everyone was excited... then it came out and it was still raster...

Huh? I have a 24" monitor with that resolution (Dell U2412M) and it's the reference size: 96 DPI. That is exactly what 100% scaling in Windows is meant for.

If you think things are too small at that size you really need to get your eyesight checked or you're just sitting way too far. 96 DPI used to be the golden standard for monitors and is what Windows uses as default DPI.

 

I have a 1600x900 panel in my 13.1" laptop (140 DPI) and I love it. Things are a bit smaller, sure, but there's so much space on your display! Multitasking!

 

A good way to check ideal DPI settings is with Word. At 100% zoom the page on your display should be exactly as big as a real page (of that paper size). Or as close as possible anyway.

60Hz - there is no flicker....if you have a hefty video card in there...

I well heart this Dell!

The ASUS he was referring to is not a TN panel - it is the PB278Q

Im hearting the Dell too

I think you should take a crash course on screen resolutions :rofl:

 

Higher DPI means clearer everything. Better graphics in games, better movie quality, better everything.

We have the same monitor, I don't think my eyesight is bad, maybe is the distance, I'm sitting one meter away from the monitor. How far are you sitting?

that's not necessarily true. i have a Seiki 4k hooked up to my 680s using 8.1. It works flawlessly.
