You know, I really like the prospect of 4k gaming but you have to be insane to buy one now.

I mean high resolution and pixel density is the shiznip, but this monitor only has a contrast ratio of 800:1 and a response time of 8ms. It also cost $3500!!! That seems to be average with most 4k monitors of this resolution.

No thank you. I'll keep my 27" asus 1080p 120hz monitor. It has a contrast ratio of ASCR 50,000,000:1 and 2ms response time. It's also only currently $500.

The cons far outweigh the pros of 4k monitors currently. Especially the price.

Are they smoking crack for that much?

Are you referring to this: ?
or this one: ?
It's only $259.99 and the other one is $269.95. Prices must have marked down since the time you bought one.
Getting a 4K today is really not a good choice. I'd prefer getting a bigger 1080p screen than getting 4K resolution.

Neither of those, since they are both VE models and the one I have is a VG model. Mine is 120hz, has integrated nvidia 3d vision support, and included a pair of the nvidia 3d glasses. As far as I can tell neither of those do and just by looking at the stand I can tell they aren't the same models. A 27" 120hz monitor isn't quite that cheap yet. Maybe a tv with supposed 120hz but 120hz on a monitor is the real deal. Very few (if any) tvs actually support a 120fps input. I have to use dual link dvi to get that input onto this monitor.

This is the one I have and when I bought it a year ago it was actually $700...

Also for a monitor, 27" is about as big as I want it. I guess 31" would be about the limit. So at this point higher pixel density would be nice. Just not at the cost of everything else, and again at the actual overpriced cost in general.
