WS60 2OJ 4K Edition

A lot of you out there have been asking for 4K resolution for added productivity. Of course, it has always been possible to connect external monitors to your MSI notebook, whether it’s a workstation or a gaming notebook, but what if you need more on the go?

We’ve heard your prayers, and gone on to complement the 3K (2880x1620) panel in the WS60 lineup with a 4K Ultra-HD one with a 3840x2160 panel. A resolution this high (as large as 4x Full HD panels clustered together) will of course increase productivity and do more even if you’re stuck with “only” one screen.

The WS60 2OJ 4K edition will be available world-wide starting January, but if you look closely, you might be able to find this in stores already, in select regions.

Hate to say this but I think 4k is too high a res on a 27" screen so this would be insane on a laptop monitor surely?

Samsung and LG are about to release phones with 4k.

I can't help but think that on a screen of that size it is purely a marketing tactic and a waste of processing power. Might be one of those see it to believe it things but i'm not sold

I'm a little tired of the whole 4K whoring, my mate just bought a 4K 42" Samsung TV and I'm sick of hearing about how much better it is for watching TV (Sky HD)... I simply can't be arsed to explain the whole 720p/1080i Sky lies or the fact that his TV is just upscaling the received transmission.. lets face it, to run "true" 4K at acceptable levels you need some serious grunt behind it, no one streams in 4K so what's the point, hell even Netfix maximum streaming is only 1080p and you require 5mbps or greater broadband to avoid buffering... Youtube are only just getting there with 1440.. So 4K is it worth it, for TVs NO, for PC Monitors yes but only if the panel is comfortably large enough (32">) or you're multi paneling your setup and you have the GPU grunt to accommodate the 4K needs..

Amazon Prime Video streams 4k. Youtube has a few 4k videos as well.

Windows just doesn't work well with 4k currently. It'll be sorted with 10 I hope. OSX does a very good job and I'm pretty sure there is a Linux distribution that'll do it just as well.

That's great and all but not many people are seeing the important part.. and that is bandwidth required to stream at 4K, it's on average 12 - 20Mbps , the average UK broadband connection is 5 - 7Mbps.

As it stands:
SD 1.5 - 4Mbps
1080p HD 5 - 7Mbps
3D HD 6 - 12Mbps
4K 12 - 20Mbps

Well having seen it myself 4K looks amazing even just as an upscale. I've seen 4K Netflix stream fine on a Wi-Fi connection too.

Wanted a bigger TV, went from 42" 1080p to 55" 4k which upscales content to 4k, it isn't true 4k content I get that but wow it makes my 1080p TV look shocking.

I'll be honest though, the ONLY reason I got the 4k one is because I was eyeing up a 60" 1080p for £900 and the £1500 4k was down to £999.99 at the time, then a friend mentioned he had a 10% discount card
