    Need some general advice on what kind of monitor I should be looking for


    I don't play video games, the most important use of this monitor would be watching movies, apart from that I use it for typical desktop/internet browsing activity. I'm on a budget, so I'm looking to get off cheap here, say around $350-400.

    Now, I have a few questions:

    #1 How important is 4k?

    Since 4k is the new thing, I thought maybe I should set that as my minimum, but should I?

    Generic PNP monitor

    Hello,

    I use a CAD program that apparently has a problem with my ASUS 4K monitor. Seems I've tried every which way to get Window to recognize my monitor but, all I get is . . generic PnP monitor with an old 2006 driver. I've downloaded the current monitor
    but, Windows won't use it.

    Gone through a number of help suggestions including disconnecting the monitor, reconnecting, re-starts, delete driver, re-install . . .llllllll

    Any advice would be most welcome.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Mitsubishi Intros A Pair of New DiamondCrysta Wide Series Monitors

    Looks like they are IPS, but is it true that they are fully 120Hz compliant? I see they seem to list Dual Link DVI connections but I'm confused by the diagram that suggests the monitor internally generates the extra frames. *Confused Need some general advice on what kind of monitor I should be looking for :confused:
