Sleep/standby not supported is a bummer. I never touch my monitors, not sure if I would be happy having to turn off each one every day either. I also like that they go off after 1 hour of inactivity and save energy.

I wonder if there is some hack solution... I didn't have success with goggling this...

PS: not sure if TVs would ever support DPs. It would be the end of the monitor business I guess, as the TVs are cheaper at this point...

Turning off can be done, the TV has a 'no signal input' timeout that is configurable from 15 minutes to 2 hours. Turning back on is the problem, it doesn't auto-wake. Sucks for sure. The HDMI spec does make it possible, I have a Panny plasma that auto wakes when I turn on my receiver.

This is a good option for a 40" 4k monitor, although not curved:

Amazon.com: Philips BDM4065UC 40" Class 4K Monitor UHD 3840 x2160 Resolution, Speakers, USB Hub, VGA, DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, HDMI, MHL-HDMI: Computers & Accessories

I'm sure sooner or later we will start to see curved 40" monitors. I guess we will have to wait a bit.

Wonder if if this setup could play the market better up and down. Of course there should be at least three big screens.

I did a lot of research on that panel and decided to avoid it. You can check the [H]ard forum discussion for all the details.

I have a question about 4K GPUs please.

My objective is to replace 4 monitors with a single 4K unit. My existing GPU is a NVS 510 and it appears that there are workarounds for 4K, but they have some disadvantages such as reduced refresh rates (30K). And the NVS family is designed for multiple displays, so I'm not sure if the processing power would be properly allocated to a single output.

The GTX 970 looks like it would be suitable and within my desired budget of $400, but I have some concerns.

It uses their DSR technology, which provides scaling for less than 4K monitors, so does it provide a discrete, or unscaled 4K output? (does it upscale to 4K?)

And I'm not clear on what the refresh rate would be. The specs say it uses their "groundbreaking" G-Sync technology, but what is number?

The Nvidia site has been touting the GTX as a 4K solution for about a year, so I'm thinking that GPU technology is still in the workaround stage for 4K.

any help would be appreciated. Not necessarily pointing me to a particular product, but maybe a GPU primer. thanks.

DPI Calculator / PPI Calculator Site

Here is a site where one can quickly & easily calculate the PPI for any monitor along with viewable dimensions and pixel pitch.

https://www.sven.de/dpi/

For example, on a 24" 1920x1080, PPI is 91.79. Fonts look OK to me at this resolution. By comparing PPIs of various monitors one can get an idea of how font size and chart scale will look on particular monitors.

For example on an Asus 32" 2560x1440 monitor, the PPI is also 91.79, so fonts should look OK there.
As another example: on a 34" 3440x1440, the PPI is 109.68...fonts here would look a bit small in my opinion.
On a 27" 2560x1440, PPI is 108.17....again fonts will look a bit small here.

Taking an initial screen shot of a monitor where fonts look OK....then resize that shot as a percentage of PPI on other monitors one may be looking at....one can then get a precise picture of how other monitors will compare visually scaled to your base model.

i think this is why they were saying 40in at 4k was probably the smallest 4k monitor you should use for trading.

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

40" & 50" 4K monitors PPI


If the base model where fonts appear very readable is a 24" 1920x1080, the PPI is 91.79....this is your 100% PPI reference.

A 40" 3840x2160 is 110.15 PPI.
97.79 / 110.15 is 83%. Fonts here will be readable but somewhat small....slightly marginal in my opinion.

A 50" 3840x2160 is 88.12 PPI.
97.79 / 88.12 is 103%. Fonts here will be very readable.

You can play around with Snagit, altering several screen shots of the 100% monitor by the above percentages.to see exactly what a 40" and 50" will look like vs fonts in the initial 24" monitor shot.
