Are these displays simply too good to be true?
Do you fancy a big monitor? And we mean a really big monitor, because
As mentioned, gamers might also be tempted by these curved 4K screens, as they’re obviously going to give you a pretty breath-taking experience when playing the latest shooter (or whatever’s your gaming poison). Particularly given that these displays have AMD’s FreeSync on board to combat stuttering and tearing.
The monitors offer a resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a 60Hz refresh rate and a 3ms response time (4ms for the larger screen – again, that’s still pretty tidy for gaming). These are 10-bit SVA panels with 99% coverage of the sRGB colour gamut.
Easy on the eyes
As Ars Technica reports, the monitors use ELED backlighting which means they are flicker-free to be easy on the eyes when used for long periods of work.
You get full picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture support, and connectivity includes a DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0, and a pair of HDMI 1.4 ports, alongside a legacy VGA connector. In total, you could hook up four PCs to the display with a Full HD picture for each.
There’s also a built-in USB hub and integrated 6W stereo speakers.
Both these monitors are currently only available in Japan, and as mentioned, they don’t carry wallet-destroying prices. The larger 55-inch screen is priced at around $870 (around £700, AU$1,135), and the 49-inch display runs to $725 (around £585, AU$945).
JapanNext does sell products in Europe, so fingers crossed we’ll see a launch of these giant screens over here.
