    Sadly depending on the manufacturer, some won't accept them back and it's the shops loss. Sure somebody from ocuk said once there is a skip full of smashed up high end monitors costing hunderds of pounds each

    Regardless of why 4k monitors are so much more expensive than 4k TVs after using 4K screens 32in and 40in over the last three years I would never go back to 1440 or 1080 the extra sharpness and more screen space is a winner every time.

    Yes, of course. And in future the only way to go is for screens with more pixels.
    I do wonder, though, why not stating this a strategic goal and subsidising the market, or some type of necessary global policy in order to make them popular as fast as the manufacturers can.
