    Sounds like a good competitor to Dell's P2815Q (probably using the same panel). Let the UHD price-war commence!

    Dell have done 2560x1600 IPS screens since forever?

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Err...the Dell U2713HM I'm looking at now is 27" 2560x1440 IPS?

    The documentation on the Lenovo 4K screens doesn't mention whether they use Displayport MST to achieve 60Hz...if they're only 30Hz, it might explain their lower price...

    Re: News - Lenovo unveils 4K resolution ThinkVision 28/Pro2840 monitors

    The point about 2560 wide displays is they were always very expensive, even the cheaper 27" models from decent brands like dell come to £600, now suddenly UHD displays are at that price point, we just totally skipped 2560 wide £300 displays. Ah well no complaints from me, I might well pick up that display with Android as a replacement for my 27" 2560x1440, I'm a fan of being able to use a monitor without a computer being turned on.

    But surely the point here is people don't want to spend £600, regardless of resolution?

    The various Korean off-brand monitor produced using excess b-grade 2560x1440 panels flooded the market at that price point, meaning there was no incentive for larger name-brand companies to get into a price war.

    Except hardly anyone knew of them (no-name brands, no advertising) and good luck RMAing one. I bought one of those korean monitors and it's simply missing features and build quality that you'd get with a western brand like for instance a power button that's built to last, a case that hasn't been repurposed (it looks like I have an IR receiver but there's nothing behind it), some form of quality control for things like connectors lining up with holes and for that matter being there (HDMI 2 where did you go, there's only a hole left now), ooh and controller features like autoselect, or a spdif port that provides quality audio (not sure how that went wrong). I could go on but the point is that for £300 you could get a monitor of questionable quality or for £600 you could get a reliable one, I'm pretty sure the extra quality doesn't double the price so that situation was extremely weird.

    At least now UHD pricing seems to be making sense, I'd be willing to bet we'll see $500 monitors by next year.

    We want OLEEEEEEEEED. Stop throwing LCD displays on the market.
    OLED technology gives true blacks, life like colours, very thin construction and very low power consumption. Business is business, ok.

    Yeah, but OLEDs are not as correct as LCDs when it comes to colour accuracy. And they are quite a bit more expensive at this sizes.

    Triple 5x? What's that, 15x?
