    New 4K monitor

    I see the "ghost" which trails behind the mouse at 30Hz. But other than that there's nothing about the refresh rate which really bothers me. Oh, you know what? I actually turned the display down to 24Hz. As a movie person, 24fps looks pretty nice to me. ;-) The Seiki monitor has a really wide angle of view. I mean really wide. Wider than my audio monitors, that's for sure. ;-)

    A slightly modified Unempty Vintage Multi. (I put my logo in it. ;=)

    New 4K monitor

    It's really nice to have adequate space on the screen for things -- and to have it at a reasonable resolution too. I think a monitor much larger would start to actually become uncomfortable. I really wouldn't want a monitor so big that I'd have to change eyeglasses or use bifocals just to see the whole thing. ;-) Cheap stuff is an advantage to living in the US. ;-)

    New 4K monitor

    Having seen Kraznet's monitor screenshot, I decided my eyes needed a big hi-res monitor too. I got a Seiki monitor off of Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DOPGO2G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It's a 39" monitor for $340 delivered (to the US). The refresh rate is limited to 30Hz at "4K" resolution and I drive it with my Quatro 4000 video card. So far I really like it. I've fiddled a bit with Windows font sizing and such. All of my "professional" work is audio-for-video so it's really nice to be able to have the mixer up, with a reasonably sized video window, while having enough space to edit on. It's also nice to have a reasonable number of tracks to be able to see at one time. Oh, and the 5.1 meters show up too. I'll probably do some massaging of the way the screen is set up as I live with it. The slow refresh doesn't bother me as far as working goes but NTSC video looks very, er, "video" to my eyes on this screen. Here's the link to the screenshot via Imgur: http://imgur.com/JCIYobp The image below is perhaps annoyingly large so feel free to look at the imgur link instead.
