    1080p equal to 4K?

    • +2 votes

      Anything can be if you use your imagination (and ignore the vertical resolution).

    • +6 votes

      4k is twice the size of 1080p, 49 ultrawide is twice the size of 27 inch so you're essentially buying 2 27 1080p without the bezel in the middle

        so porn watching will be twice as good too?

        4k is 4x1080p.

          1080p is 1920x1080

          4k is 3840x2160 = 2 x 1920x 2x 1080 ( still 200% from screen size pov for some reason

          The name (4k) is defined by the width (3840), so same width with higher screen size = lower ppi

              @mimik13: 4k is bigger than 1080p I'm not disputing that, if it is package in a smaller screen, it's clearer, if 4k is package in a 49 inch screen it is still 4k but looks bad because it's a larger surface area for the same number of pixel to cover

              4k is 200% of 1080p, that is what they use to describe them in the photo and video editing industry

              So I'm not sure what you're trying say

            @ln28909: Lol 4k is 4 1080p Monitors.

            What's even more stupid is the people agreeing.

              @DisabledUser139667: 4k is 200% of 1080p, I know that is factual

              If you're upscaling a video from 1080p to 4k, you're upscaling it by 200%

                @ln28909: As you said above:
                - 4k for a standard 16:9 refers to 3840p x 2160p
                - 1080p for a standard 16:9 refers to 1920p x 1080p

                The 1080 in 1080p refers to the height while the 4k is the width.

                In terms of dimensions, yes it's double the height and width (200% upscaling) but what might be causing confusion is that people are talking about the image resolution; in this case it would be the area which is 400%

                •  

                  @Tyble: Yeah I do agree, me saying twice the size is not really correct

                  But in this case the screen is still 4k, as it is 3840x1080 with double the width of a 27 inch screens, so the pixel count is the same as a 3840x2160 27 inch

                  So technically it is still 4k

                    @ln28909: So if I have a monitor that's 4000pixels wide and 10 pixels tall… It's 4k technically?

      •  

        4k is 4 x 1080P

      •  

        It is not a standardised cinematic 4K (4096 × 2560) or UHD 4K (3996 × 2160), but still considered 4K.
        Please read:
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_resolution

        The term "4K" is generic and refers to any resolution with a horizontal pixel count of approximately 4,000.

        Various other non-standardized 4K resolutions have been used in displays, including:
        3840 × 1080 (3.55∶1 or 32∶9); this resolution was first used in the Samsung C49HG70, a 49-inch (120 cm) curved gaming monitor released in 2017. This resolution is equivalent to dual 1080p displays (1920 × 1080) side-by-side, but with no border interrupting the image. It is also exactly one half of a 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) display. Samsung refers to this resolution as "DFHD" (Dual Full HD)

      Half of 4k.

          The poster above me asked if 3840 x 1080p is 4k as that's the resolution of the monitor. I replied saying it's half of 4k which is accurate.

    That's one short monitor, height without stand is 17.2cm.

      I’m told the girth is more important if the monitor is short.

    •  

      Seems ridiculous, right? I thought it might be a mistake, but I checked other websites and they list dimensions as the same.
      I can't accept that as being correct though. Who would buy it if screen size was 17.2cm high?

      •  

        You would think it's a typo since it's half the height of an x34 predator, but who knows.

    3440x1440 seems like much nicer resolution than this. And more real estate on screen.

  • +1 vote

    Price is not bad but you need at least 5120 x 1440 for this size.

    Any Suggestion
    since Kogan is taking time to post Xioami 34" bought on 25 Dec.
    Should I cancel that order and order This One?

    •  

      No, the Xioami one is better in resolution.

  •  

    This is not 4k.

    •  

      Arguably as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_resolution states

      The term "4K" is generic and refers to any resolution with a horizontal pixel count of approximately 4,000.

      However 4K UHD is 3840 horizontal. The same article also described this:

      Various other non-standardized 4K resolutions have been used in displays, including:

      3840 × 1080 (3.55∶1 or 32∶9); this resolution was first used in the Samsung C49HG70, a 49-inch (120 cm) curved gaming monitor released in 2017. This resolution is equivalent to dual 1080p displays (1920 × 1080) side-by-side, but with no border interrupting the image. It is also exactly one half of a 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) display. Samsung refers to this resolution as "DFHD" (Dual Full HD)

      •  

        "4K" was always super vague because it's purely marketing, but consistently referred to a horizontal resolution of roughly 4K. So that would make sense to me.

    •  

      Your point?

      I guess you should neg any 4k TV cause they aren't 8k?

      Going to neg every non 4k Monitor deal too?

      The listing is changed, so revoke your neg.

        The title originally said "4k"…I cannot change my vote. If you click through to the link, the product title says "4K' which was what OP copied for their title.

      No, it's accurate. People seem to think that all "4K" displays should have a vertical resolution of 2160p to be considered "4K". Which is not accurate

      But 4K has always been just some marketing term that refers to a rough horizontal resolution of 4K (hence "4K" and not 2160p). But people seem to think that 4k displays should be 2160p too (even though it was never standardised that way), because atm most 4k displays happen to be 2160p.

      It would have been a different story if the term used was "ultra high definition". Which I think is what people seem to think when they hear "4K". But again, it's just another vague marketing term, but one which consistently refers to something with 4k and is over 2160p

  •  

    This one or the 2 x 34 xiaomi ?

    •  

      I personally don't think 2*34 Ultrawide is usable. You have to turn your head around quite frequently. Xiaomi is newer and better in resolution and don't need to OC to get the 144Hz

  •  

    4k in simple terms is 720p (so HD resolution) X 4. It's not an exact science, but that's what it is.

    • +1 vote

      Sigh

    •  

      1280 x 2 = 2560
      720 x 2 = 1440

      2560 x 1440 is the new official 4k resolution guys!

      •  

        I got Quad HD and 4k terminology confused. My mistake, ha.

        Quad HD 720x4 and 4K not quite 1080x4

        1440p probably looks 4kish enough at a decent distance from screen.

        I barely notice pixels at 1440 on a smaller (29") ultrawide, personally.

  •  

    just get a G9 which is 5K. G9's price will be coming to near 1k soon but you will need 3070 or equivalent.

    And 3840 x 1080 can be 4K but Not an UHD.
