Forget 30" and go for 32" / NEC Available for Order

Who ever gets their hands on one of these, please confirm it works with the Mac Pro.

NEC PA322UHD 32-Inch Professional UltraHD 4K Display Now Can be Ordered

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2014 - SEND FEEDBACK
Search: 4K display
See NEC to Offer 32-Inch Professional UltraHD 4K Display Soon (PA322UHD) for more information and my comments on this exciting new offering for professionals. Thanks for using these links to order.

Order NEC PA322UHD with calibration software and calibrator unit
(slightly confusing click the “Price” button to add to cart)

Order NEC PA322UHD WITHOUT software/hardware calibration (not recommended)

The PA322 UHD is due to ship in December, but I hope to have a unit for review in November. A 32-inch display has a viewable image size of 31.5 inches diagonally.

I’m feeling strongly inclined to return the iMac 5K for two reasons. First, the PA322UHD will suit my needs much better over time, even though it is “only” a 4K UltraHD display. Second the iMac 5K is woefully expensive once configured up, has a number of limitations, and the 5K screen while gorgeous for viewing has a very high pixel density which is not looking all that friendly for tweaking images at a detail level.

Probably since
"... The screen is based on a Sharp IGZO IPS-type panel like several other 31.5" displays currently available (Dell UP3214Q for instance) which offers IPS-like performance characteristics. ... "


http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/news_arc...m#nec_pa322uhd

Basically same panel with NEC expanded color and backlight additions. Probably still same DisplayPort 1.2 MST connection from Mac Pro , but possible a slightly better panel controller.

Priced in same ballpark as 5K iMac. If internal color lookup table (LUT) , 10-bit color, and wider gamut backlighting are far more important than just raw number of pixels then it is probably a reasonable trade-off.


At the more affordable entry point it more interesting if this one

I wish the industry would move to or have options for a 16:10 aspect ratio rather than the 16:9.

40" - Sweet

Thanks for the link - lots of great info. I instantly fell in love with that 40". I'm perplexed why apple never re-made a 30". I'm not willing to accept anything smaller.

Available Now?

I recently noticed that B&H indicates the monitor will be available on 01 DEC 2014. However, there is no mention of 4K on this or NEC's website.

The article title clearly states it will be a 4k monitor, but even within the article, the only mention of 4k applies to the 24" monitor.

Thoughts?

We are getting a test unit in the next few weeks at work. I'll let you know how it looks.

I wish the iMac was able to be run as a sundry monitor for the MacPro, so much more bang for your buck!

^^^^Because I have a 24" 16:10 now, and the real estate at the bottom is important to me.

I can see that. Last week I moved my dock to the left of the screen so I could add an extra inch of bottom real estate. I feel that with a 32" 4K display 16:9 won't be that much of an issue because of simply how large the screen is.

Not likely to happen, at this point. The industry has moved to 16:9 by and large, I don't think they're going to pivot back.
