Dell UltraSharp UP2414Q Black 23.8
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 2160 x 3840 pixels, 60 Hz, IPS, DisplayPort 1.2 .

Cons: Dell sent me a bad DIsplayPort cable.
I didn't realize this until now, 9 months later.
See below.

Other Thoughts: I'd delete my previous reviews, if I could.
Dell sent me a bad cable, that's all.
Replace the DisplayPort Cable -- REPLACE IT ! ! !

I was having serious problems until, one day,
I decided to replace the cable.

Be sure it's 4K, 60 Hz rated... with thick, good shielding.
Do NOT buy a lower-rated cable.

Oh, My, God... did that make a difference ? ! OMG.

Before, I had numerous failures,
including garbage on the screen;
the monitor would occasionally force low-res, low Hz, etc.

The original cable had bent pins and the like... really bad.

Why did Dell give me such a Crappy cable ? ?
Dell's cable is half the width of the $9 one
that I bought to replace it ( same day shipping, from/to Seattle ).

3 out of 5 eggs Swivelled portrait, videos look -bad-, jittery. 05/19/2014

This review is from: Dell UltraSharp UP2414Q Black 23.8" 6ms HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 4K 50 ~ 300 cd/m2 2,000,000:1

Pros: It's IPS, so colors "remain true" ( i.e. they don't shift ),
no matter their screen location .

When you're 12 to 18 inches from the screen,
as I am, the high resolution is much appreciated.

It swivels portrait, so you can view -much- more text
when editing and/or browsing...
and there's more than enough room to watch
a 1080p video at the botton of the screen too.

Cons: When swivelled portrait, as mine is, it's 29 Hz only;
i.e. videos are limited to a jittery 29 fps,
no matter how good your video card may be
( $430, Quadro K2000, or $160 Quadro K600 ).

When a video pans a scene, it looks -bad-, jittery.

To get the portrait mode option, you must
set the monitor to DisplayPort 1 ( not 1.2 ).

Obviously, this is -bleeding- edge tech,
not quite ready for prime time.

Other Thoughts: I can't wait until better/cheaper 4K/UHD,
185 dpi, IPS monitors, with 120 Hz/fps,
portait mode, appear.

NVIDIA® Quadro® K600 VCQK600-PB 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Powerful/Cheap 4K/UHD, only 40 watts. 03/11/2014

This review is from: NVIDIA® Quadro® K600 VCQK600-PB 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

Pros: Powerful/Cheap 4K/UHD, only 40 watts.

Cons: More speed at less cost would be nice, obviously.

I had to switch to the "Zoom Player Free"
video player because KMplayer failed
to properly utilize this card.

It took me awhile to figure that out.

Other Thoughts: Moderator, please delete my previous review,
since "user error" the only problem,
not the video card.
