Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Hisense introduced its aggressively priced 55-inch XT880 4K Ultra High Definition Smart TV for $1,999. That may not exactly fall into the "affordable" category for most shoppers, but it wasn't all that long ago when two-grand was the going rate for a regular TV of the same size. These days that gets you a 65-inch or 70-inch Full HD 1080 LED, or in this case, a 55-inch 4K panel.
Been looking for a reason to upgrade to a large screen monitor? You might finally have one, provided you're willing to drop three and a half large on a display. Starting today, you can pre-order the Asus PQ321Q, a 31.5-inch 4K ultra-high definition display with a 3840x2160 screen resolution, versus the 2560x1600 resolution found on most 30-inch monitors. That equates to four times the resolution of a Full HD 1080p display.
There are only a handful of 30-inch PC monitors to choose from, compared to, say, 24-inch panels, of which you could spend an entire weekend just researching all the different options. For that reason, we can't help but get a little excited when a display maker announces a new large screen monitor, only Asus didn't stop at 30 inches. The new PQ321 Asus unveiled is actually 31.5 inches, slightly larger than the competition.
