Doesn’t seem to have HDMI 2.0

Save your money… You will zero difference between 1080p and 4K on a screen this small. In fact, at 28", 720p is the highest discernible resolution you can really have.

It’s just a ploy to sell using the oh-so-fancy tag of 4K… ohhhh!—ahhh!!

Besides, no one is providing enough 4K content to make it worth it right now. Within 6-12 months, 1080p will start to fade and become the “old standard”, and 4K content will make it worth actually buying one…

I have an apple cinema display 30 with 2560 X 1600 resolution. I can tell a huge difference in working it over my 27 inch 1080p monitor at the office. Everything on the 27 1080p is HUGE you do not have as much screen real estate to work with even though the physical size is nearly the same. Wouldn’t the same be true of the 4K monitor since the resolution is 3840 x 2160?

Didn’t see a screen refresh rate listed. Am I missing something?

-edit- looks like it actually is 60hz with the proper connection.

I don’t believe the target audience here is people putting it on their nightstand and watching TV.

A big high res monitor on a workstation can make a big difference

Hmm, sorry but that is your opinion. My eyes can tell the difference, and the higher resolution gives more desktop real estate which is an easily discernible difference. I do agree 4k content is low, but it’s going to improve of course like you said.

Now having said that, I personally would rather have a 4k monitor with a higher refresh rate than 60hz. You will start to see 4k monitors getting all the new tech and features compared to 1080p as manufacturers are going to be heavily pushing 4k from now on.

Hmm, sorry, but I don’t believe you see any difference at all. It’s easy just to say it. A 28" screen is not even close to the size you need to begin to realize the difference 4K MIGHT make.

Don’t get this. It’s a crappy TN (not IPS!) panel that has connection problems with Nvidia cards. Plus it’s stand is REALLY wobbily. I had to return mine to amazon. You might be buying mine if you get this deal haha.

I think you are forgetting the fact that people will be using this as a computer monitor, not a TV. If you can’t tell the difference between screen resolutions on a computer and the usefulness of it, you have no business discussing it.

I don’t believe you don’t believe this, it’s easy just to say it.

Also you don’t seem to be aware that people don’t look at monitors from across the room.

I got this from Newegg about 2 mounts ago and I love it. I was using a 40" 1080p tv before and there is a big difference in quality and clarity never going back to 1080p. I only wish I had the money right now to buy two more lol.

I just bought one of those Vizio 4K TVs, mounted it to the wall in my office, hooked up a 4K HDMI cable from the computer to the TV and now I have a 50" 4K monitor for not too much more coin than this puny 28" monitor. Oh the picture is glorious. And since this is on the wall, I now have more desk space. You should try it.

Refresh rate can be a problem. If you’re plugging it into HDMI (as opposed to DisplayPort) then it will only do 30Hz which makes video really painful to watch. Unless you have DisplayPort, you might want a monitor with bigger hertz.
