    Bought a Sony W800B 50 inch. Impressions.

    Large screen + 4K should be an answer, for both sharpness/normal DPI and large screen for more immersive gaming.

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    I wonder if lag wouldn't be less on native resolution with no scaler involved, if you say that 1440p on both monitors ..

    Benq BL3200PT (32" 1440p)

    My guess is that panel manufacturer releases panel, specs how that panel can be used/tuned in different modes + some base firmware for TCONs to drive it, which monitor manufacturers then can work on (eg. to expose different options in user UI / use different overscan settings / etc). Fact that...

    4K 60Hz 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 TV Database

    Sitting at 50" 4K shouldn't differ much to sitting near common four fullhd monitors. And i also would prefer 4K starting with 50". 40" i might somewhat live with, but it doesn't seem best variant. And definite NO to 32"-28"-24" 4K monitors.

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Do you say it from your usage experience or it just theoretically seems to you as how it should felt? When i used 50" 4K, had no problems adapting to size. And heck, even on 21-27" i rarely used apps fullscreen/maximized with exception of games/movie playback/ones where maximized meant less...

    Skip 4K, go directly to 5K?

    aye, half the bandwith .. and 8K is 4 times pixels of 4K, thus only way to go for 8K@60Hz is two DP 1.3 or four DP 1.2/HDMI 2.0. P.S. I really hope that VR headsets/glasses will take off. It's MUCH MUCH cheaper to manufacture screens of sizes used in these then big high res screens in common...

    DP1.3 - when?

    .. or not, if with current input options it will be accompanied by MST, unless it's custom non-standard HW like in new imacs.

    DP1.3 - when?

    If HDMI 2.0 appearance in actual products (TVs/monitors/GPUs) timing after finalizing standard is any indicator for that, then most probably still looong way/time for it. There is slight chance for AMD next gen gpus to have it, but i wouldn't count on it. As nvidia's gpus (970/980) were released...

    4K HDMI 2.0 and DP1.2?

    Only thing i dislike in Panny - it's 4K DP is via MST. But it being only 4K TV vendor including DP at all .. i hope that next panasonic 4K TV after AX800 will have everything top notch, including DP SST 4K input possibility.

    60hz to 144hz more incrediable than G-Sync?

    It does require. But IIRC it's cheaper then g-sync's hw, part of DP 1.2a standart, no licensing costs. Due these reasons there came fourth - it's now backed by Intel aswell (don't underestimate importance of this. Most gpus ARE integrated ones. Monitor vendors WILL think of this aswell, when...

    Benq BL3200PT (32" 1440p)

    Hight of 34" 21:9 is somewhat same as that of 27". It simply is stretched for extra 1/3rd wider. As i want to gain vertical size too, i rather prefer upgrade that monitors of this thread bring. Comparison of them directly.

    Going with 32" 4k or 34" 3440x1440. Any opinions on this?

    My opinion would be neither, but rather 32" 1440p or 40-50" 4K.

    Suggestions for dual 27" LCD?

    If you have nvidia, i'd rather suggest going 3x24, as they purposedly left nvsurround support for even number of multi-monitors only for quadro gpus, for gaming gpus - only n+1 monitors (except if it's for early 4K MST with whitelisted EDIDs). As for USB .. my choice again would be separate usb...

    Acer announces 4K 28" monitor with Gsync

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Hmm, i'd double check that pixel thing to not run into some thought out only issue. Even if pixels themselves are not square, it doesn't mean that display/panel 100% should be disproportioned. Pixel form shouldn't automatically impact vertical/horizontal gaps between them or that those gaps must...

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    .. or it's FW. I somewhat guess that rather it's FW that decides depending on detected input to tell monitor HW/scaler to do what and how. It's up to to what extent HW can be hacked up (it may even require source for some parts to enable compiling different binaries or to find in source how/what...

    Benq BL3200PT (32" 1440p)

    Does it change depending on to which video inputs monitor is connected / from which gpu output it's connected? (to strike out gpu / gpu output differences / gpu fw glitches & maybe monitor different input port capabilities/glitches). Is it possible to get from these QNX when their panel was made...

    Seiki Announces 28", 32", 40" 4K Monitors with HDMI 2.0 and Displayport 1.3

    To each his own. I would delete from considered purchase list right away after noticing 21:9 :P. Actually .. same with 5K. If you need several most expensive top gpus to drive 4K, put even more load on them? (I wouldn't have brought up 2nd argument if you hadn't mentioned 120hz, which makes me...

    Another 40" 4K IPS like: Inkel SUf40SK $850

    And if it's just 30Hz which sounds like HDMI 1.4 limitations, and there is no DP .. it has nothing to make it better then even cheaper 39" 1st gen UHD TVs. I somewhat expect that maybe it's real capabilities are better then listed specs, given it's release time .. or if not simply not worth to...

    Seiki Announces 28", 32", 40" 4K Monitors with HDMI 2.0 and Displayport 1.3

    None, nada, zilch. Why ask rhetorical questions? One can count how long it took from finalizing standart till seeing it in actually selling products for eg. HDMI 2.0.

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    geok1ng: i believe that martin's 39" may have different scaler then 50"'s. At least my 50" skyworth, while also accepted overclocked to similar numbers input, it came with this scaling-soaping on all modes but stock. Even if i reduced refresh rate, not overclocked.

    IPS monitor 30" / 32 " / non 4K

    I didn't had mentioned GW2760HS so how can i compare? I can only say that i like picture of current benq bl3200pt more then old dell 27" ips ultrasharp 2709W i had before this. I certainly wouldn't blindly tie "better colors" to wide gamut and to IPS. Slightly larger view angles (VA is still...

    Samsung 31.5" 4K monitor model UD970 support DVI, HDMI 2.0, Display Port

    My wild guess is that simply other 4K monitors of 30+ size were overpriced, instead of this being cheap. If early adopters allowed themselves to be milked, why vendors shouldn't? "Shut up and take my money" (c) Futurama

    IPS monitor 30" / 32 " / non 4K

    Sounds like you care how picture will look in games more then unmentioned in OP professional graphics work. Hence standart gamut & deeper blacks of VA imho will look better in games then on some IPS wide gamut monitors with srgb emulation.

    Aspect Ratios...

    Laptop is usually held/looked at closer. Hence subjective PPI for those 4K screens is denser, text/UI elements smaller.

    Mine is quiet. I guess it depends a lot on luck. Though then again it was always true, other brands included.

    Aspect Ratios...

    Given choice of high-res/big-size/good other params, i'd choose 4:3. But there is no new one which would be competitive for all of that. Hence i'd go for next least wide, that offers said other qualities. Be it 16:10 or 16:9. Certainly NOT 21:9.

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    My guesstimate, that however bad input lag (relative to common for monitors) will be, it has many chances to be at least better then for UHD TVs. And of course, i'm yet to see very thorough review for this.

    4k Display, but not for gaming.. for monitoring..

    Titan's HDMI support is only upto 1.4 hdmi specs (though then again so is seiki, as it is 1st gen 4K tv). For 60Hz@4K you need HDMI 2.0, thus never/more expensive TV with said HDMI standart version support & 970 or 980 cards as only ones with HDMI 2.0 for now. On some UHD TVs kepler+ nvidia gpus...

    Best UHD TV for Pc at 40" max and 1200 € max?

    Check this thread. It's 40" 4K monitor, not TV though. And i've yet to find some thorough review of it. It's not on sale everywhere worldwide, but it seems like soon it will be. Another promising contender might be New 32-40" Seiki 4K monitors supposedly out in Q1 2005, also with DP & HDMI2.

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Also among differences is that except Panasonic all the other TV vendors supply with HDMI only, no DP. In 4K case that limits to have 60Hz@4K only via HDMI 2.0 (thus to 970/980), while monitors (&panasonic's 4K TVs) can be used also with other/older gpus @60Hz.

    Want help finding a good 32" screen.

    If as monitor .. maybe worth considering 1440p 32" screens? Imho FullHD is a bit too low res for the size. Not sure if it would benefit PS4, as i never had any console.

    first monitor (1440p/budget)

    21:9 .. It might help in some games .. and cause problems in others, where/if not properly supported. As many i play are from slightly older / classic ones, i don't want to have any too wide aspect workarounding, but as i still wanted bigger monitor, i ended up with benq 32" 1440p VA one. It...

    Seiki 4K, Anyone know how to run dot to dot on custom resolutions?

    I wonder if someone can get info on scaler chip usage/programming/configuring/apis from it's vendor .. but then again i'd be too lazy to dig that deep for cheap tv that most probably will be replaced by better alternatives soon to be available.

    BTW, is there really need to hunt for some obscure bugs that need special methodology only to notice?
