    I have an LG 4K Ultrafine on order, and just found it on the LG website:
    http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-22MD4K-4k-uhd-led-monitor

    Once you dig through the marketing jargon and get down to the tech specs:

    - Screen Size 21.5" Flat
    - Panel Type IPS
    - Color Gamut (CIE 1931) DCI-P3 99%
    - Color Depth (Number of Colors) 8bits, 16.7M
    - Pixel Pitch (mm) 0.11622 mm × 0.11622 mm
    - Response Time 12ms / 14ms GTG
    - Refresh Rate H-Frequency: 88~143kHz V-Frequency: 48~60Hz
    - Aspect Ratio 16:9
    - Resolution 4096 x 2304
    - Brightness 500 nits
    - Contrast Ratio 1200:1
    - Viewing Angle 178 / 178
    - Surface Treatment Anti-glare, 2H

    Now this is mostly just what Apple quoted during their presentation. However, one thing caught my eye.

    12ms / 14ms GTG response time!

    All other high end IPS monitors i've seen have been in the region of 4-6ms.
    An example: LG 27UD88-W 5ms. http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-27UD88-W-4k-uhd-led-monitor

    Won't that make the whole thing a blurry mess when there's lots of movement on screen (like when scrolling)? Anyone care to share their experience with it and comment on whether it's a problem or not?

    Thanks

    Haven't noticed any issues like that at all with mine. Note these panels are almost identical to those that have been shipping in the iMac for over a year (I think the UltraFine ones are brighter) and no-one complained about them.
