    Plug your machine in and see what you think! For me it's been transformational.

    I will have limitations because my PC cannot support higher than HD over HDMI and I'm using the DP output to drive my QHD monitor (which is also lush). In fact I've never run a PC on 4K because our laptops are all too crap to run that high when connected to our main TV.

    But I might see if I can at least try it so I know how good it is... my Mac Mini is surely due an upgrade and the neer ones can drive dual 4K via HDMI (I think)

    Maybe they've updated it since then so it's now worthy.

    For those not sure the benefits over a large monitor, both is still the best solution. A large monitor so can have multiple things open and visible and multiple desktops for logical separation of stuff instead of one desktop with a zillion shortcuts. The 4k monitors/TVs do need a compatible output from the PC/laptop to run 4k at a decent refresh rate, so DisplayPort or HDMI 2.0.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Ah... that'll be why I don't use them then: they're still a bit crap as there doesn't appear to be a way to configure each logical desktop separately.

    The Dell I got is great. Pin sharp, and I can have three code listings vertically parallel.

    I've ordered a second monitor that's not quite so wide.
