Mein Auto: You've*got*to be kidding
Yummy 4K- New monitors

Black Friday afforded a nice opportunity to find a few 28" Dell 4k monitors. The coupon from the Dell outlet included free shipping. I secured qty 4 2817's @ $261 delivered. This will fit both my personal and business stations well. I've had a pair of 1080p Asus 27's for a few years.

I was only interested as a passing fancy up until the other day when I docked at a remote workstation with 4K monitors. The resolution was addictive for multi-tasking, I absolutely had to replace the legacy HDMI connections. I received two of them today.

I'm not new to the *theory* of DisplayPort since I've been in the 'biz' for a hundred years, but not unlike the cobbler's child, I had not yet taken a test run. So far, this only a single display, but the 2nd one for this application awaits me moving sh!t around and daisy-chaining the two together.

To this point, I've used only HDMI or (what is now) legacy DVI. I am absolutely dying over the native resolution and cannot wait to add one of the 2nd 28" monitors. Let's hope I get to keep the real estate across two monitors.
