I notice that several 3840-pixel-×-2160-line (4K, UHDTV, etc.) monitors have been introduced at CES in Las Vegas at quite aggressive price-ponts, including a $700 28-inch Dell unit that is scheduled to begin shipping later this month.
I'm less interested in these for post-processing than as a possible transmissive display device with high dynamic range that could serve as an alternative to printing. Has anyone out there tried this? How would you compare the visual quality with, say, a competent ink-jet print?
(There are obviously some purely mechanical issues, such as concealing cable runs and crafting an attractive wall mount, but at this point I'm primarily curious about how the images appeared on a high-resolution display. Up to now, all I've seen is canned presentations in TV showrooms, where the still photographs are so oversaturated and oversharpened that it's difficult to make a judgment about how a well-processed image would look.)
