Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulnearBedford Best monitor for the money by far
Been looking for a 4K monitor for some time. Most were just short of £1000 so couldn't justify it as I needed a new gfx card at the same time. Then this came along and allowed a new Nvidia 980 and the monitor for less than the expected thousand. Sounded too good to be true but actually the monitor is brilliant. Comes with Displayport cable although I am not using the built in speakers - my audio set up is better. At last I can game in 4K now and it adds such detail to the likes of WoW, Diablo III and the new Doom, not to mention Far Cry 3 and so on. At last I can turn them up to 4K plus put just about all the settings on high/ultra (with the new card too obviously) and not get any slowdown when I enter a room.
The best part of this order was that from submitting online to getting confirmation of shipping took SIX minutes. Well done Scan. How to pick and pack....

If you are looking for a 4k monitor that works with a Surface Pro 4 in 4k resolution, then look no further!!!
I can tell you from experience and writing this review in 4k resolution that this monitor . . WORKS!!!
There are issues with some 4k monitors not working on the Surface Pro 4. . with the right lead, with the right settings on both the tablet and the monitor it works great. .
Remember to change the Display Port settings on the monitor from V1.1 to V1.2

Rated 4 out of 5 by f1gjam Good Monitor but remember its a TN panel
I bought two of these monitors as I wanted two 4k screens. The monitors themselves were very good and the build quality was excellent. I can see why all the reviews gave them good ratings. However personally I have been using IPS panels and these were my first TN panel based monitors. I was really disappointed at the viewing angles.
My advice is if you are just going to use one and be looking at it dead on, then this is a perfect monitor otherwise get a IPS panel based monitor.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JaseYan Horrible milky white hue
Runs at 4K @60hz (displayport 1.2) no problem on my GTX780 SLI setup but when put next to my other non 4K Asus monitor the whites are awful.
It has a constant milky hue and no matter what setting you choose on the inbuilt menu it fails to get white.
To get it close to white sRGB or built in settings the greens and yellows go super bright and look falsely enhanced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ty1982 quite simply the best monitor I have owned
Had this product for a couple of months now and I can quite honestly say it's the best bang for buck 4k monitor you can buy. Very sturdy, movies and games look great. If you are going to be playing games you need to ensure refresh rate is set to at least 60 hz which you can do in the settings. You also might need to set your display settings in windows and make sure you use a display port cable. Overall I'm very pleased and would recommend buying this if you're in the need for a 4k monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jwolff Great for the price
I choose this monitor as it had multiple inputs, I wanted it for the spare room that has my gaming PC and a Virgin Media V+ HD box. Connected the former using DisplayPort (as mentioned in other reviews, make sure you set the monitor to DP 1.2 to get 60Hz), and the latter via HDMI - and still have one free HDMI. The monitor switches to the correct input whenever the device is turned on.
I'm using a GTX980 and am getting excellent 4K at 60Hz on Borderlands 2 :) The HD quality from the V+ box is good too.
Speakers are OK for general PC use, but no good for gaming. The monitor's stand is great and has adjustable height, you can slip a soundbar in underneath it, and use the monitor's headphone out (or connect direct to source - a Goodmans is not bad if you have multiple analogue sources).
The onscreen menu is only mildly fiddly, and I've found I hardly ever use it.
Comes with DP and HDMI cables, but oddly a non-UK power cable.
Windows 10 has no problem running at 4k, but some apps don't scale so the text can be very small :) Not a problem with Steam (it has the Big Picture more), but could cause some squinting with other apps.
Excellent service from Scan too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MsMac Good monitor but not suitable for Mac video editors or photographers
The monitor 'real estate' is vast- however it comes at a price. The icons and text are so small that it is not suitable for any application running the Adobe creative suite, logic or Final Cut. I have perfect vision, but it was giving me a headache as I was squinting the entire time. Mac does not have a scalable feature- it seems this was designed for the purpose of computer games and not for pros using pro apps. I returned it and bought a Mac Thunderbolt Display which was much, much better. Confused as to why this monitor has received so many awards. Because it's a good value 4k monitor? So what if you can't see the text properly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike0987 Asus 28" 4k
Very good and quick to setup. You need to enable the 4k @ 60hz in the monitor menu over the DVI. But after that I am running 4k on everything. It looks fantastic. You will need a good graphics card to keep up!
