Sharp's 32-inch 4K LCD monitors (eyes-on) (engadget.com)

More realistically, there's a new 4K2K display from Seiki (a Chinese manufacturer) for $1199 (available from TigerDirect and a few others). It's 50" and you can only run it at 30Hz (3840x2160x30p) because it has an HDMI port and not a display port. (HDMI 1.4 only allows up to that bandwidth.)

I've been trying it out as a monitor; I'm not sure it's really usable as such; text looks pretty bad on it. I'm hoping that fixing that just requires some calibration. There's a detailed discussion of this display here: http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?98027-1299-Seiki...

In any case, it definitely seems 2013 is the year we'll start to get affordable 8MP monitors, which is great news for those of us running 2-3 30" panels.

Why is a 3 month old CES review on the front page? Considering this is the only result in Google Shopping, and they have a stock of -1, I don't think this is even available yet:


Its rumored that the next Apple Cinema and iMac screens will be Sharp IZGO panels.

Delicious 4k in 32", I can't wait.

This is a poor quality article. More information and better pictures below.

Plus bonus link of Crysis 3 on said monitor.


Could IGZO be the technology that pulls Sharp away from the edge of bankruptcy? Or is there not enough money in panel manufacturing?
