Planar IX Series 4K Monitor Earns High Marks for Visual Performance and Price Point

Technical product reviewer David Novak recently took a look at Planar’s premiere 4K desktop monitor – the Planar® IX Series™ IX2850, a 28” 4K desktop monitor, and was impressed with the features and the unmatched picture quality and image clarity calling the new monitor a “great choice” for anyone looking for a 4K monitor under $600.

Novak, The Gaget Guy, an internationally syndicated columnist, weighs-in on many of the 4K monitor’s features and gives the Planar® FlexFour™ software that allows up to four video sources - very high marks.  He describes the Planar IX2850 as able to handle “ 4K images wonderfully and has no trouble displaying all shades of gray. Viewing-angle performance is better than most, and it comes with a fully adjustable stand and a better feature set than most in its category, and certainly in its price range. We highly recommend this 4K monitor, both for the price and the performance.”
