Nope. Honestly I just don't know what to make of them yet. It really seems to be overkill to me. I also don't like the price associated with monitors that can actually display such resolutions. But my issues with it probably just stem from not being able to grasp a noticeable increase in quality over current standards.

Seems sort of pointless, how many people even own a 4k monitor? When 4k becomes the standard it will be amazing :)
Regardless if you have a 4k monitor or a rig that can handle it, if you got bad broadband then you're still stuck at 360p

From what I have researched and heard 4K will only look different on large screens 60" +. They will look awesome in movie theatres!

That's not true. Even with a normal monitor you should still see the difference between HD and 4K.

I find it pretty funny that these exist. It's annoying because I can barely watch 1080p/60 on my laptop without it stuttering. It's disappointing because this laptop is meant for gaming and it's having trouble watching a video at 60 fps? Lame. Also, 4K needs like a steady 1 Mb/s internet connection on top of the necessary hardware to watch, so I find it pointless as of right now.

If you can see my Speed Test Result you will be shock but It's Real and you know Philippine ISP.


Do you think it's worst, there is more than less than you expect. Philippines has the Most EXPENSIVE INTERNET COST and also the 220V ELECTRIC BILL COST.

This should make you feel a bit better about your upload speed @John Necir Rebellion!

My computer can't even handle 1080p videos. Downloaded, yes, streamed, no. You can imagine 4K ran for me at less than 1fps on a monitor that can't exceed 1920x1440 and a graphics card that's essentially a potato :P

Don't feel bad, most of the time I'm stuck on satellite internet that has such a low data limit that I can't watch more than 1 or 2 videos a month. And the cost associated with this internet package is like $61 USD a month.
*Edit* - Don't be fooled by the ~200 miles away thing for the server. Satellite internet never shows you anywhere close to where you actually are



Now I don't know much about electric bills in other countries, but usually when go you up to higher voltages like 240 (formerly 220) you usually use less energy with that item, appliance, etc. because you don't have to draw as much at higher voltages as you do at lower ones like 120 (formerly 110) which is standard in the US. My knowledge on this matter is a bit limited because while I install and wire panel boxes in mobile homes on an assembly line I don't really have to know any theory behind it.

I thought I had the worst internet. I guess for the US I do, seeing as how it's slower than 90%.
