The moment I bought this awesome baby, people (including my dad) started pouring comments like:
- You could have gone for a monitor, which is way cheaper.
- Why do you need such a huge screen?
- Are you gonna just watch movies on that big bad boy?
- and lots...
Well, I am sure those who talk like this to me don't really appreciate what I am actually doing - as a hobby and for a living. This monitor is not just another Television replacement, but has a resolution 4 times higher than Full HD. Its wider workspace allows me to view more webpage area, images and texts with less scrolling and zooming. Also, this enables me to see 4K content the way it was meant to be seen, with a new level of lifelike detail that makes me feel like I am really there.
The monitor's infinitesimal quantum dots, in 1 billion hues, create images in vivid and wide-ranging colours. Coming with refreshingly enriched greens and reds in particular, it simply better meets my professional needs, especially in photo editing and graphic design. Being a graphic designer (well, front-end architect, so of course), I need to make sure that there's a pixel perfect output for my satisfaction.
Other than the brilliant colours, as a web developer, I do have to test things out using different devices. Being just a PC Monitor, this helps me in a way I can connect almost all my different devices to my Mac by providing a number of USB and other interfaces.
It has four USB 3.0 ports, which can transmit data between devices about 10 times faster than with USB 2.0 ports. Two of these ports also enable me to recharge my iPad, iPhone, Android Phone and other mobile devices in super-quick time (well, it's 3 times faster than USB 2.0 ports). The good thing is that, my iPad now doesn't say "Not Charging". 🤣
Altogether spending about 300 £ is not at all a regret for me, considering this to be something I have been looking for - either watching movies or working, this has covered me in its best! Do let me know if anyone has a similar experience with the device.
