The UHD420 isn't a perfect monitor, but it's unique combination of resolution, variable refresh and pure pixel count is unique in the market.

In The News From around the web

The 60 Hz limit is common to basically all 4K displays on the market today and a VRR / FreeSync range of only 18 Hz would initially seem useless.
Built around a 42-in LG AH-IPS panel, the Wasabi Mango UHD420 is an impressive display.
A GM204 Quadro K6000 replacement, would be perfect for Nvidia’s value chain, unless they decide to go with GM200 directly.
Here is an example, the mobile variants usually have the m suffix, so the technically correct naming of a randomly chosen Maxwell card would be Quadro M2200m but that is semantic redundancy and would be marketing folly.
First among these will be Qualcomm, who will be using the backdrop of the I/O conference to celebrate the launch of their latest high-performance SoC-class GPU, the Adreno 420.
The low power nature of mobile devices and the SoCs that power them means that while Qualcomm can’t match the performance of the larger desktop GPUs, Adreno 420 will be a big step up from the performance offered by the older Adreno 330 GPU.
