4K screens are starting to drop in price and the quality of them is improving, this one is a start.
Now we just need the GPUs to catch up so a single card is enough to run one 4K screen as good as they can on a 1080p one today.
Until that happens, it isn't really worth going 4K for 90% of people. By the time it does happen, 4K screens will be even cheaper and there will be better ones than the ones today.

Very swish! And I really like the performance figures, puts into perspective just how much horsepower is going to be needed for 4k, particularly as things progress. One question though.....don't happen to have a couple of Titan's knocking around to run a test or 2 in SLI? The 295x2's only have 4GB per GPU, so the Titans could be a little experiment into the value that could be offered by something like a much mooted yet never materialising 6GB 780Ti, or even the 880 in the future.

Also, does your camera have a manual focus or focus lock? If not have you considered using a dSLR instead?

Does it support 120Hz with 1080p? I'm intrigued by the idea of having such a screen and doing work stuff at 4k, and then game at 1080p. There wouldn't be blurriness since at 1080p every pixel is represented by a 2x2 cluster.

Asus is really bringing it these days with their monitors. Ive been doing some research on some wanting to upgrade my 25" HP and a lot of the top ones out there seem to be by Asus.

Think Ill pass on 4K though for a while. I think its a little too much resolution requiring a little too much GPU horsepower. Luckily for my 42 year old eyes, 1920x1080 looks plenty sharp.

Good review as usual, very difficult to portray with the conditions that were mentioned. Did I see some artifacting during the Valley 4k run?

Looks like I'll be sticking with my Dell U3011 for a bit longer. My 780ti's struggle to keep up with some games while maintaining that golden 60Hz and above refresh rate at 2560x1600. Games that ignore SLI or CF (such as the latest Wolfenstien) will have run with one GPU on a 4k screen making it even more demanding.

In my opinion 28 inches is too small for such a resolution, 30" or preferably bigger is required to really feel the benefit or desire to change. Or the need to go to Specsavers!

Tom, about the focusing of your camera on the screen - get a paper print out of some really sharp text, place it on the screen temporarily and then use the manual focus of your camera to focus on that text. Remove the paper once your happy. The problem will be if you move the camera or adjust the zoom, you'll have to focus it again...

Meant to mention - the sound in your videos is bang on .

I'm holding off on 4k tech for another year or so, until then my Asus PB278Q is more than good enough imo. The specs for this display are impressive though, for those with the coin and desire I don't see there being any competition or doubt on what to get when it comes to 4k displays at the moment.

Good review man, very informative.

Your comments on the high Quality of the TN panel should appease some of the TN haters. That being said I don't plan on moving from my IPS anytime soon.
