Your say Friday: Will you be going 4K this holiday?

This year’s holiday shopping season has pushed 4K monitor prices to the floor. Acer’s 28″ B286HK hit $349 on black Friday and several displays are now available with an base MSRP between $450 and $600, putting them in a range at least some will tolerate.

Turning on a 4K monitor is a striking experience if you’re used to 1080p, but there are still problems. Window’s scaling isn’t entirely up to the task and even the quickest video cards struggle to power games at 3840 x 2160. There’s also some of who are satisfied enough by their old 1080p or 1440p and don’t see increased resolution as a compelling reason to open their wallets.

What about you? Are you going 4K, or are you happy with what you have?
