Something I loved at Computex this year was ASUS' 31.5-inch 4K monitor, the PQ321Q. We even thought it was so good that we gave it our 'Best of Computex 2013' award for best gadget. It is priced at $3,499 but features the pixel-crushing 3840x2160 resolution, blowing most displays out of the water for screen real estate.
ASUS' PQ321Q features a 140PPI pixel density, and uses Sharp's IGZO technology, or Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide. IGZO have some great benefits, such as higher image quality compared to normal LCD's, all while using less power. IGZO also has each transistor in the display be made smaller, which allows for higher pixel density, and thinner screens.
The ASUS PQ321Q is 35mm thick at its deepest point, not counting the stand, which ASUS say is the thinnest wallmountable 4K display on the market. We have a 176-degree viewing angle, 10-bit color depth, 350 cd/m2 brightness rating, 8ms GTG response time and built-in speakers. DisplayPort and HDMI are on the PQ321Q for connectivity.
The PQ321Q should ship on July 16, and is available for pre-order through Amazon, Newegg and Tiger Direct.
