Did people ever call 1920 as 2K?
or why don't we call 4K as 2160p?
"The 4K standard is not just a resolution, either: It also defines how 4K content is encoded. A DCI 4K stream is compressed using JPEG2000, can have a bitrate of up to 250Mbps, and employs 12-bit 4:4:4 color depth."
professional systems are for professionals and are defined by more than just resolution, while consumer's get marketed to by companies that dgaf about actual definitions of things.
Once you're not using a traditional small monitor anymore the extra height of 16:10 just isn't worth the extra cost associated with a non-standard aspect ratio. You're almost always better off simply going with a larger/higher resolution 16:9 display.
40" 3840x2160 seems to be the current sweet spot.
A 40 inch monitor is fucking ridiculous. Either you're sitting so far back that it might as well be smaller and closer, or you have to crane your neck around to see the whole thing.
>A 40 inch monitor is fucking ridiculous
Its really not. Its slightly less wide than a pair of 1080p 23" monitors side by side, and about the same height as one of those same monitors turned vertically. Its perfectly comfortable at normal viewing distances and there's no more turning or craning of your head than with a dual or triple monitor setup.
>has 3 fans on the back
2560x1440 is what people consider 2k but since it's not technically true it enrages autists.
>why don't we call 4k as 2160p?
Actually, OP, if you weren't busy sucking cocks you would've found out that YouTube already does that!
