    Thank you. I'm really interested in this.

    But I noticed some 'creaking' noises from that plastic shell. Also, I think the display is not very sturdy as it shook a little bit after the guy changed the viewing angle. Not very convincing I guess.

    It would be great as a secondary monitor for coding. I have 1920x1200 side monitors now (30" is primary). It's going to be tough to not grab one.

    It's an AMVA panel. Yes, that's a type of TN, but it's certainly not "cheap TN". It's got better viewing angles, better blacks and better response rates than IPS.

    If you look again at the pictures on Tom's you'll see a beautiful extreme angle shot.

    Lipstick on a pig my friend....

    And the 30hz refresh at 4K, the old adage comes to mind: You get what you pay for.

    If it's a secondary monitor for review, fine but I'd rather save my duckets.

    What do you guys think, when will a comparable 60 hz panel appear for an under 1000$ pricing?

    I just had the genious idea to check out 30hz on my attached beamer and I didn't find it as bad as I expected it to be. At least not for a display that's being used 80% for static panels like in after effects or for itunes.

    The gained screen real estate to be able to look at an entire afx timeline would be just AWESOME (even if fonts are tiny)

    But if a 60 hz panel comes out 4 months I would be annoyed.

    I need a 2nd display soon though. It's either gonna be an outdated thunderbolt display or this dell. I'll sell either one, once an affordable 4k display with 60 hz comes out, but yea...

    I'm interested in a monitor like this, and this one is now about 550$ shipped. I think I'm going to wait till April and checkout the new Asus that should have a 60 hz refresh rate at full resolution. 799$ retail though, but maybe worth it.
