Hello,

       I'm wanting to buy my first 4K display. I'm wanting to hook a desktop box PC to it and mount the display on the wall. How can I do this and what kind (if any) accessories will I need to do this?

 

     Also; I'm not wanting a small 4K display nor a huge one, but rather a medium-sized one. I'm not sure exactly what size that would be. Any suggestions on what a medium-sized 4K display would be is greatly appreciated.

 

Also any other pointers on what to look for in a 4K display would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thank you

I was just reading up on 4K monitors and it doesn't look like they currently make sense to have: http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-4k-monitor-doesnt-exist/

 

Apparently HDMI only supports 30hz for 4K so it would be flickering all the time (?!)   Also your PC has to be extra powerful (video card too) to drive the thing. And tons of content is not available in 4K so it would give no advantage, and some apps look weird in 4K since everything hasn't caught up to it yet.

 

Wall mounting suggests you want to be far back from your monitor (I think?) and in that case, it might not even look that much better than HD?

Thanks for the pointers. It sounds like it may still be too early for using 4k as a PC monitor....   :)
