Lenovo Announces 28-inch ThinkVision Pro2840m 4K Monitor

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 16 comments

Alongside a handful of tablets, laptops and convertibles, Lenovo today kicked off CES with the introduction of the ThinkVision Pro2840m.

 

The ThinkVision Pro2840m is a 28-inch UltraHD display that boasts a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels (157 PPI). The monitor sports true 10-bit color, DP+mDP_MHL, USB BC 1.2, 3x USB 3.0, and 2x USB 2.0. There's also dual 2x3 watt speakers, touch sensitive buttons, a stand that allows for tilt (forward 5 degrees, backwards 25 degrees), swivel (45 degrees in either direction), and life (110 mm).

 

This display is expected to hit the market in April of this year, though no specific release date was given. Pricing is set at $799, which is awesome value for a 4K monitor.

    Finally. Good price, but does it support >= 60Hz refresh rate and display port?

    Wow that's really cheap for a 4k monitor, if there was a 32 or 36 inch version I'd get one

    Nice but too small, Ive been on a 30 inch 2560 x 1600 display for over 3 years now. Make it at least 30 inches if not 32 or 35...

    None of these early 4K units will be worth a damn to game on. Just placemarkers until the proper tech comes along to make it gamer friendly (unless you enjoy 30FPS).

    Damn, how do ppl play games on a freaking 32, 42 inch screen? I'm actually hoping they'd release a 23"-24" version. I'm sitting about 1.5-2.1 feet from my 22" full hd on my desk and I could already make out the individual pixels on the screen and it's at just the right distance where I don't have to turn my head left and right to scan the full screen to pick out my enemies. At 35" you'd have to sit so far from the screen to get a decent unpixelated image you might as well play in the living room infront of your TV screen.

    "True 10-bit display": are you sure? Source?

    It's odd that they chose 28". The usual size is a multiple of 3 which are 21, 24, 27, and 30. I''ll buy one if they make a 30".

    For 4k there seems to be normal to have 28 and 32 inch versions. All the released desktop monitors are in in that gategory, or is there one with 30"?

    Update... the Dell has at least one with 24" screen.

    4k requires 48 inches to not need ui scaling. if you have to scale the ui, than what good is 4k for at that point?

    No mention of HDMI 2.0 then?

    It clearly says that it supports display port. And if it has display port then it can do >30fps. and you also dont need hdmi 2.0.
