Shame it's not 27"
Ya beat me to it... Good price & I'm tempted......
smoking hot!
Not a great monitor it seems 60hz and at that size seems pretty pointless, anything 4k will be tiny tiny with writing. Good price mind. hotukdeals.com/dea…986
Would this work in 4K res with a Surface Pro 4 tablet. I.e. would all pixels be utilised properly and not "stretched" and pixelated looking? It would be connected via a Docking station.

The Suface pro 4 has mini display out so it should be fine driving a 4k screen... in fact i think you can drive 2 oO

Scaling is decent enough on Windows 10 that it'll look fine - A few apps, certainly older ones might look a bit weird, but not unusable.

60Hz is also fine for a desktop monitor. This isn't even £200 and is IPs and 4K. It's clearly not aimed at gamers.

See MS page (link here) for the official supported resolutions and number of monitors.

Personally I have dual 1440p Dell UP2516D from the recent deal via the dock for the cleaner look and better app support for this resolution.
I bought one of these in the recent Scan TodayOnly deal. I am a really picky sovabitch and I'm impressed.

It was fairly good out of the box and even better after DisplayCal'ing.

Can't go wrong for the money, Windows 10 works really well in 4k.

That's exactly what I thought... 60Hz is the norm, it's when you have 4K panels at 30Hz maximum that there are actual issues and you want to avoid.
4K2K is better than 4K and 2K, if you can add up like I can I know it seems like 6K but it's not, but you can be sure that 4K2K is better because the marketing department has told you it is. I voted this hot because I confused myself even.
I have this 72hz is achievable it's a great monitor for the price lots of adjustability
below is the last time when i listed it if you want to reas peoples opinions

show me a single 4k monitor that can do 120hz

lol, it is a bit misleading and confusing what they write, the native res. is 3840x2160. Does not exist yet one that would do multi res. in a native res. Apart from the 4k resolution all the rest will look degraded, 1440p will look better than 1080p and so on

surely 1920*1080 on a 3840*2160 is exactly one 2x2 'block' of native pixels on the monitor per "driven" pixel from the source, so should be a perfect reproduction? (versus imperfect/degraded for non-integer-multiples of the resolution like 1440).
This monitor is tempting, although my Mac Mini 2014 can drive 2 X 1440p monitors it can't drive 1 X 4K @ 60Hz, so I couldn't use the native resolution. However I do game but I'd rather a 1440p 144Hz monitor. I've just worked out I need a 1440p 144Hz monitor Carry on, just talk amongst yourselves.

That is your opinion but it does not work like that, any gradual res. upscaled on a 4k moniotor/tv starting from the highest resolution would gradually get worse and worse as you go lower, 1440p will definitely look a lot better than 1080p and 1080p better than 720p on a 4k monitor unless you can address me to a monitor that will do what you say. It reminds me of a 4K 50" Panasonic tv/monitor I owned that had a switch that should have given a clearer pure 1080p upscaling(especially for pc use) the pixel was I think quadruplicated to fill up all pixels but the final result was completely rubbish as the normal 1080p was far better even so softer and 1440p was decent, can see it is on what I got now. the best solution to get all different resolution in a native way is to use unscaled resolutions, it all depend what you need to do and obviously needs to be a proper large 4ktv as otherwise in a small monitor the 1080p woud be in a very small screen with black bars around as an example.

No - I thought that, I have 4K Sony TV and using a 1080p source it does some odd scaling and tries to smooth/interpolate between pixels no matter what mode you have it in, so it's not perfectly sharp. Probably better for video like this but not as good for text, though from where I'm sitting it's not that noticeable so I don't worry too much. If it were a 4K monitor and I was a few feet away I probably wouldn't tolerate it.

​Yup. The 1 pixel will be converted to 4 pixels. the colours of these 4 pixels will be based on an algorithm taking in factors such as the colour of neighbouring pixels, and for something really clever, the colour of the pixel in the previous frame(s) and perhaps for something really really clever, the colour of the pixel in the next frame. I've not seen a monitor that has a way of choosing the upscaling method.
Why expired? I got two of these the other day. Excellent monitors for the price
