4K displays get affordable for Cyber Monday

I’m not quite ready to upgrade to a 4K (4096×2160 resolution) monitor yet, but if you are, Samsung’s 28″ 4K display is on sale for $400 (down from $700) for Cyber Monday.

At that size and resolution, it works out to 165 pixels per inch, which is very close to what we used to call “near letter quality” in the days of dot matrix printers. To me, this seems more practical than using a 42″ 4K television, and the refresh rate is much better.

Keep in mind you do need Displayport to drive a 4K display. Most video cards costing $100 and up have those these days, but even some Geforce 210 cards have them, like this Jaton.

    If you’re seeing an abnormal number of odd links on this post, that’s Viglink at work. I use Viglink to help me cover my operating expenses, and it automatically does things for me like convert a link to a product on Amazon or Newegg to an affiliate link for me. Amazon cut off its affiliate program in Missouri, so Viglink was about the only practical replacement for it.

    Viglink will also insert the occasional affiliate link for me. On this post, it’s been inserting a lot more of them than usual. If that’s helpful, great. If not, I apologize for the spam.
