The 4K resolution on the displays may well soon be a thing of the present in every office, work place or the living room, but that is going to be a thing for the computer users too, especially when the video recording to 4K with the 4K video cameras is now a good possibility already.
Below, we share some of the well known monitors for the personal computers, which come with the 4K resolution, which equals four times a full HD resolution, and provide a brilliant experience especially for those who are into photography, videography or into the editing stuff. These are from the most famous brands like Dell, Acer and Samsung although others aren't ignoring this, and as the CES 2014 is around, we might be getting to know about more of such 4K resolution monitors very soon.
As claimed by the company, the Dell P2815Q Ultra HD monitor is an affordable 28-inch one which would has a 4X higher resolution than Full HD, which in simple terms is the 4K HD resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. Being priced under $700, the monitor has quite some flexibility in the adjustment of the height, tilting, pivot and swivel. One can easily input the connectivity wires for the connection with smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs.
The best part, again, is the pricing because in the UK market it is just Asus' 31.5-inch monitor which costs around 3000 pounds, and thus this one from Dell would set a new standard for the pricing of the 4K displays around the world. To add to this, Dell is going to provide the Premium Panel Guarantee, where, under the period of hardware warranty, even if a single bright pixel is noticed, the entire panel is exchanged by the company. The product is now available on Amazon at a price of $699.99
One of the early monitors in this category of 4k resolution, the ASUS PQ321Q is a 31.5-inch monster which is hefty with the size, and with the pricing too. It is a True 4K USH monitor, just like the Dell one with the resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, and the total of over 8 million pixels would surely do a brilliant job in portraying the high graphic content.
The monitor uses the Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) panel instead of the amorphous silicon used in the traditional screens, and that is coupled with the 176-degree viewing angle on both the planes. Connectivity wise, you get to see the DisplayPort and dual-HDMI ports to connect the devices to the TVs, and the 2W built-in speakers are good enough for the audio experience with no need of any additional external speakers.
Just like what we are going to see in the Dell's 28-inch monitor, ASUS is giving a Zero Bright Dot guarantee where a full replacement is done on even a single bright dot pixel noticed, and along with that, there's three years global warranty. It is priced at nearly $3000.
Samsung 31.5-inch 4K UHD PC monitor

Although being showcased at the IFA 2013 in Berlin, the 31.5-inch monitor from Samsung has not shown an official appearance in the market, but we expect this to be available any time soon, where this one would take the place on the desktop rather than hanging from the TV mounts on your room wall.
Rocking the 3840 x 2160 pixels screen resolution, the monitor has the built-in calibration engine, and you get to see two DisplayPorts, and these are for the DVI-DL and the HDMI connectivity, and along with that, there are four USB ports.
Samsung is even going to provide a monitor hood on all sides around the monitor, so that the color consistency is maintainted and there is lesser light reflection.
Before the introduction of the $1000 28-inch monitor, Dell has the 31.5-Inch True 4K Computer Monitor, modeled UP2414Q for the price of $3399. It's a Ultrasharp monitor with the 3840 x 2160 pixels and it comes with the PremierColor providing a 99% AdobeRGB and 100% sRGB coverage.
The viewing angles are excellent, with the Dell monitor providing a 176-degree viewing angle both vertically and horizontally. We might not exaggerate much about it, because the pricing of the monitor would not attract a lot, although there are features that make the company ask for such a pricing. There's a USB 3.0 Hub and along with that, a Mini DisplayPort and 6-in-1 media card reader are included.
Lenovo ThinkVision Pro2840m
The Lenovo ThinkVision Pro2840m is priced starting at $799, and the monitor comes with the 28-inch display and it comes with a lot of ports and a very different design which makes it possible for the users to turn the display vertically. This monitor is going to be released in April 2014.
Specifications wise, the screen resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixels and the ports that are included are DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, HDMI, USB connections which include three USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0. The monitor also has got two speakers and a jack for the headset.
LG 31MU95 Real 4K Monitor
LG has announced the 31MU95 31-inch 4K monitor at the CES 2014, and this comes with the highest resolution in the list, having the screen resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels, and this ultra-wide 4K resolution would keep it edge ahead of the others in competition. The pricing and the availability details are not known right now, but this is surely going to cost quite a lot.
There are a few more monitors which are in the roadmap for this year, and we would be updating the list accordingly as the time progresses and the companies announce the best ones.
