28" seems like an odd size to me. It's too small to use at native resolution (where 32"+ is much better), and too large for a retina display (24" is better).Another 4K display introduced, 28" for $800.
this would kind of blow if other displays that are more to my liking such as the LG and Lenovo models are not going to work out of the box. To be clear, I am less concerned with perfect color space than I am with an industrial design that is not distractingly ugly.I get the impression only the Sharp that Apple sells and the Asus clone of it are officially "supported" at this time.
I also read Lenovo just announced a 4K display for $799.
Not only that, but I simply refuse to go back to a glossy display. The glare, and reflections make it horrible for me.Ignoring 4K displays, would professionals or prosumers who are doing video or photography, even consider an Apple thunderbolt display over say a NEC 271w-bk which is cheaper and according to reviews, considerably better at color reproduction ? I'm just curious. Is it the TB connections and camera, style ?
I would like a TB display, but it seems surprising inferior for most of the applications that the nMP is designed for.
Over here amazon has them for $859 w/o Spectraview, although it saysThe NEC 271w-bk is not cheaper as the thunder bolt display (found it currently for 760 with edu discount). The dell is not much cheaper either but looks horrible..
I hate being so superficial when it comes to a display but I had a 2012 imac + Cinema display on my desk for the last year and don't wanna go back to those dells.
There were many quality complaints with the A01 version of the U3014. A02 was better, but now they are on A03 which seems to fix everything.The Dell's are not beautiful outside but very functional and not ugly but the panel itself I prefer over a 27" TB.
Only available in the USIn a similar recent thread someone suggested this display which apparently uses the same laminating process as the latest iMac to reduce reflections... and it looks great!
A01 problems with the 2413 and 2713 too. A01 the usb 3 didn't even work properly on the 2413! The 2413 is A05 and excellent now and though you may get an earlier version in the box, one hair dryer phone call to Dell and the next business day a newer model turns up on your doorstep!There were many quality complaints with the A01 version of the U3014.

The problem is Dell considers this an internal issue so there is no way to know which you are getting until the box arrives. For now, it's best to avoid discounts and wait as long as possible for the old ones to be sold.
Admittedly I'm no expert on monitors, but from what I've been reading, unless one is going to be editing or viewing 4K, a 4k monitor may not be the best idea.
Can someone explain how 4K at 28" makes any sense?
It would make sense if apple would offer a scaled/interpolated resolution "sort of retina-ish" mode like on the rmbp, displaying a 2560x1440 resolution while maintaining the actual pixel size for videos and images.Can someone explain how 4K at 28" makes any sense?
Yeah, I suppose that makes sense. I run a non-native scaled resolution on my rMBP and it looks great. I suppose the same would work on this kind of monitor as well.It would make sense if apple would offer a scaled/interpolated resolution "sort of retina-ish" mode like on the rmbp, displaying a 2560x1440 resolution while maintaining the actual pixel size for videos and images.
