The Megahertz race is old news and there's arguably something better taking its place: the desire to fill our displays with more pixels than ever before.

From small smartphones, to PC monitors and big-screen TVs, pixel density has become a crucial component, with the industry's biggest names pushing high-res panels as the greatest innovation since good ol' 1080p.

We're self-confessed fans of 4K PC monitors and have recently reviewed units from the likes of Iiyama, AOC and Asus, but it's that time of the week where we put the question to you, so let us ask: will you be upgrading to a 4K monitor?

Perhaps you've already done so, maybe you have such an upgrade in the pipeline, or are you waiting for the tech to mature? Share your thoughts using the comments facility below.



Have a tech-related question you'd like to see featured as the QOTW? Fire it over using our contact form and it may well appear on the HEXUS website! We're always open to ideas, and while we can't promise that all questions will be published, we'd love to hear your suggestions.

Not for a while.

1. I don't want a TN panel
2. I don't want to upgrade to 2 high-end GFX cards
3. 2560x1600 is better then I require right now for gaming and I have 2 of them for desktop work
4. For the living room I can't see much benefit from 1080p>4k in video quality terms (full bitrate 1080p still looks gorgeous and better than over-compressed 4k), nor do I see much content to do it justice coming any time soon and again I don't want to double my gfx power to game on it

Hell no. 4K is long off being a sensible upgrade for me

Hell no. ….
That.
Not worth the money currently and with the scaling problems it will cause with various applications would be a pain.
