Buying 4K monitors? Watch out for the fequency

The guys at Tek Syndicatedid a review of Dell 28″ 4K P2815Q and they were not delighted at all. Why? Because , in the first place, the monitor does not have a true 4K resolution, 4096 x 2160 px, it has a smaller 4K: 3840 x 2160.

Also, when you run the monitor at 4K, its frequency goes down to 30 HZ. that is good for movies, but not for games. If you’d want to play games on this monitor you’d need to have at least 60Hz or even 120 Hz to catch all those fast moving scenes and explosions.

Also, if you want to know what type of monitors to choose from, just watch what Tech Quickie has to say. He explains the different between the following LCD technologies: TN – twisted nematics, IPS – in plane switching, VA – vertical alignment and PLS – plane to line switching.
