Can't imagine much content could take advantage of 4k. I'd think a nice IPS panel monitor would do. A Guy

True, that. Not to mention that, on only a 28" screen, you would have to get within inches of the monitor for that resolution to be of much benefit. Plus, it takes a lot of graphics power to drive 4k properly, something on the order of three or four GPUs in SLI.

When I was shopping for my 32" TV, I compared 1080 with 720 and couldn't see any difference. It was only on the larger screens I could see a difference; even then, I had to get within three feet to see it.

I agree, at least for me. Keep in mind, I'm old and wear trifocals (and use dedicated glasses when working at the computer and when watching TV).

Pretty much any new generation single higher end GPU can run a 4K monitor.

4K info

I bought a 1440 28" last winter and was impressed, now I want a 4K. Been looking at the asus and samsung units.

True, but at a reduction in FPS. Most people going for a 4k monitor are going to be gamers; a reduction in FPS would be unacceptable.

What is the "4K" referring to, surely not refresh rate?

4K resolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Newegg is selling the Western Digital Green 3 TB hard drive ( WD30EZRX) for 99.99 through Sunday 6/15.

It's 119.99 less 20.00 with an email coupon. You must be a subscriber to the email deals.

Free 4 to 7 day shipping; no tax to most states.

2 year warranty.

This is the lowest net price I've seen on this drive since I've been tracking it---2 years or so. I've recently seen a Toshiba 3 TB at 89.99, but didn't have the courage to buy it.

I pulled the trigger on one. I have all of my fingers crossed as the reviews for it and all other HDDs are shaky compared to several years ago--too many DOAs. But if you need the space, you have to take the plunge sooner or later.

The Red version reviews are no better. This is purely for data backup, so I don't need a high speed Black.
