It sounds like this monitor will also be an MST panel like the UP2414Q. Hmm.. that's disappointing if true.
I bet these panels are going to show up in new line of "iMacs." lol...
i just hope Microsoft fixes the font scaling, otherwise it's all gonna be a blurry mess...:/
Besides, Win 9 is less than a year away and will surely have more robust scaling features.
The tech preview for Win9 is supposed to be out within a couple of weeks. It supports upto 8k and they re-did the icons and other UI elements, so it should look pretty good on 4k monitors. Hopefully they have a sliding scale for dpi rather than the large 25% jumps that 8.1 has.
Dell showing off this new monitor. Really excited to see what 5K looks like behind edge to edge glass. Will be beautiful!
I have 4 dell 30" 1600p monitors... I love them, I could not imagine 4k let alone 5k on anything less than 30" If you want 4k why would you go any less.
Because higher DPI is easier on the eyes.
On a laser printer, print out some text at 75 dpi, 100 dpi, 150 dpi, 300 dpi, and 600 dpi. Which looks best?
I am not disagreeing, I am stating that 24" is too small, for 5k they should have gone higher. To push a 5k monitor, no GPU right now can realistically push it on its own. Gaming is out of the water, its clear its aimed and enthusiasts and the media industry but its still going to be painful.
I have the Dell 24" 4K and have zero issues with a properly set up Win 8.1. You can get Chrome scaling properly too. 27" is about the perfect size to become a retina type display at normal sitting distance for 5K.
This monitor is about incredible resolution, not about what crappy apps out there that can't scale. Win 9 is right around the corner with tons of scaling features anyway.
If you've got money to waste just for bragging rights, go buy a Mac Pro.Not everyone has high-DPI screens for games.
They should make a 64" version of this, IMHO. Same DPI as 24" 1080p screens, and it would give an incredible amount of workspace to people that now use multiple multimonitor setups.I am staring now at my 27" monitor @2560x1440 res. What they propose to me with 5K is packing exactly 4x times as much pixels in my current real estate. This makes no sense it is wasting the huge pixel budget which the 5K brings, altogether 5120x2880=14 745 600 pixels. It would be much wiser to spend this budget on a wide field of view curved monitors with equivalent resolution of 4K aiming for substituting multi-monitor setups. This could be done with reducing the number of pixels in vertical direction to 2160 or slightly more and stretching in horizontal direction to preserve the overall bit budget. For example a 23:9 monitor with 5520x2160 or 6072x2376 pixels or 24:9@6240x2340 or even 3:1=27:9@6642x2214.

Working on my 28" 4K screen is qualitatively better than working on my 1200p 24" screens. Text looks better. Pictures looks better. I don't have to zoom out on photos. It's all much easier on my eyes. And now the monitors have come down in price, I might take the opportunity to go fully 4K when I upgrade my GPU.
No, we're not complaining about having a choice, we're complaining because the manufacturers only cater to YOUR choice, not to OURS.I'm loving my 24" 4K screen. I even game on it. Choice is good. I would never complain about having a choice, unlike some of those here.
I think the most exciting feature is the anti-reflective glass screen though.
They should make a 64" version of this, IMHO. Same DPI as 24" 1080p screens, and it would give an incredible amount of workspace to people that now use multiple multimonitor setups.
No need, if Seiki could sell a 50" 4k for <$400, someone can make and sell a 64" 5k for less than $600 if they keep it essential.5K at 64"? Got 50 grand lying around?
I don't miss the point, I just consider it futile to waste a huge amount of computing power for that, when the alternative is having an incredible amount of work space that allows the user to replace multiple monitor setups.If you think 24" 1080p PPI is ok, you absolutely miss the point of this display. I want a display that has such fine PPI at normal sitting distances, I cannot see any pixels or need any AA. Like opening up a 27" high quality gloss printed magazine. This display provides exactly that..
Please, do tell which are my options. Because from what I can see my only option is the Panasonic TX-50AX800T, and that's a 1500€+ TELEVISION (with all the input lag issues connected).If you don't want the ultimate in clarity with your monitor, there are plenty of other monitors to buy. Options are good..
You'd think the ridiculous amounts of 39" and 50" 4k Seiki sold would be persuasion enough...Then persuade them you are a valid market.
Seems awesome, although I'd prefer something easier to read, like a 48" (24"x2) or 54"(27"x2). Once the board is ready, though, sourcing the cheap 50"/55" panels shouldn't be an issue.I'm interested in making a few monitors funded by Kickstarter, one of them being a glossy, PWM and lag free 32-42" 4K monitor with a matte frame, Displayport, 2x HDMI and no speakers.

I wouldn't be complaining if I could buy a cheap 50" 4k60+ MONITOR (not TV, with tons of input lag).
Instead they only cater to the people obsessed with the "Retina" thing, and we who want to use 4k to replace multiple screens with one huge one are left dry.
