I bought this last year from Woot, and have been very pleased.
This will make a decent gaming monitor but don’t expect to watch 4K content from DRM sources (Netflix.)
The review on the mothership while overly aggresive imho, hammers out some technical specs (not listed in this sale) and what they mean for a 4K experience:
I plan on getting two for office user \ light gaming on my SLI GTX 980
Why can I not watch 4k content on here?
I read the same review, just want to make sure I’m understanding correctly. The monitor can still support 4K video files, but streaming from certain copyrighted sources won’t work? So if I want to watch/edit 4K footage I shot with a 4K camera, I should be able to?
My understanding is that this is really more of a Netflix thing than a this monitor thing. Netflix is only allowing Microsoft Edge browsers in conjunction with the newest Intel processors. So if you cannot do it with this monitor, it’s not like you can go get a different monitor that will be able to do it since it is probably the browser/OS you are using and the processor in the computer.
Also, yes, you can edit your own 4k recordings that are DRM free (like off of your camera/phone).
Be wary of this monitor if you’re going to be using it with a VESA mount. It has a very strange top placement with the mount. I had purchased this monitor before and it’s the reason I returned it. It’s a nice monitor, but if you intend to use it in a multi-monitor setup, it’s pretty bad.
I just got mine the other day. It is a beautiful monitor, great color. I did a quick inspection for dead/stuck pixels, and found 1. I will see if I can fix that. For the price, it is an amazing deal. I plan on doing a lot of 4K video rendering. This will hopefully make me happy for a long time.
It does seem awfully bright. I did figure out how to adjust, but when in certain modes the brightness is automatically very high. I guess I need to download the book on this monitor and see if I am missing something.
I’ve had this monitor for 10 months and LOVE it. The 1 pixel that was stuck I was able to get unstuck using a software utility that exercises the pixels.
