4K Ultra HD Monitor

In the description of my 2013 Desktop Computer, I mentioned my Samsung monitor. Below are are pictures of my newly purchased 28" Asus PB287Q monitor along with the 22" Samsung SyncMaster 2232gw monitor.

The Samsung SyncMaster 2232gw monitor has served me well over the years but I have been experiencing eye fatigue with that monitor which motivated me to look for a replacement monitor. Since purchasing my digital camera capable of recording 4K Ultra HD video, I have wanted the ability to see my 4K videos on a 4K monitor or TV.

Without getting into the technical details on different technology options such as LCD panel types TN and IPS, I began my price search for a 28" 4K Ultra HD monitor. The Asus PB287Q was on sale for $550 CAD so I jumped on this high quality monitor which has favorable reviews.

The larger size and higher resolution of the Asus monitor allows for more screen real-estate at a significantly higher resolution - 3840x2160 is 4 times the area of 1920x1080. The higher 4K resolution allows for crisp text which is less fatiguing on my eyes. Having dual-monitor display is useful for things like viewing a real-time stock chart on the Samsung monitor while viewing other applications on the main Asus monitor.

For amusement, here is my 4K Ultra HD TV.
