Superb monitor, but max resolution of 3200x1800 @ 30Hz if used alone... (not sure this is Asus' fault)

Summary: I got my Asus PB287Q 4k monitor yesterday and started using it with my Mac Pro (Late 2013). Let me tell you: I am blown away. I used it with Aperture and colours, contrast, etc. seem all to work out of the box. There is a reason, why this screen got top ratings by Tomshardware.com. Nevertheless, a few issues arise with fine-tuning the resolution, hence the 4 stars: - If used alone, I get a max resolution of 3200x1800 @ 30Hz.
Summary: GAMING ON A 4K MONITOR First, let me get this off my mind. Gaming on a 4K monitor is simply AMAZING. Period. I can’t go back to 1440p or 1080p. Ever. I’ve read reviews where people couldn’t see much difference between a 27” 1440p and a 28” 4K monitor …. GO TO THE EYE DOCTOR! During gaming, the difference is VERY pronounced. I have contacts and have fantastic vision, and the difference is staggering. EVERYTHING looks sharp.
Summary: Bought two of these babies, they are beautiful. Despite being TN panels they are bright enough and the color gamut is lively enough to be easily viewed even though I have them positioned with a window directly behind them. The stand is fantastic, especially when you compare them to the Dell or Samsung offerings with the same panel.
Summary: I was using pb278q, the 27 inch IPS monitor from ASUS; and I was looking to replace it. But, sadly the colors of this monitor is nowhere closer to its IPS cousin. Whites looks yellowish and the colors washed out. After, text scaling, the screen real estate is much closer to the 1440p monitor. But, the 1440p monitor beats it with a screen that is brighter, that has more vivid colors and that has much better viewing angles.
4k@60Hz needs Yosemite 10.10 for MacPro 2013 Cylinder with D700

Summary: Works great on MacPro D700 at full 3840x2160 resolution at 60Hertz after enabling DisplayPort 1.2 in the monitors OSD. Note that most Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cables will do, even if the cable is tagged as DP 1.1 (unless it is Reduced Bit Rate). Using OSX 10.9.4 there were display artifacts due to driver issues, solved by installing the new Yosemite 10.10 OS. This has VESA mount, 3 Watt speaker. It looks gorgeous.
Summary: Looks great for the price. Colors aren't the best (TN panel) and I am worried because the internal circuitry may be faulty. Sometimes the monitor sparks out and the panel turns off. I unplug it and discharge the capacitors by holding down the power button without it plugged in. After plugging it back in it works fine. I just hope this doesn't eventually fry the internals.
Excerpt: This monitor is a great item to have considering the price. I actually own two of them now, had to get the other from a different store as it was sold out here. Highly versatile, plus, once you play a game on 4k, you won't want to play it on 1080p ever again. I'm a big world of warcraft guy and the difference side by side with a full HD 1080p monitor is significant. Make sure you have the video card to run at 4k though, it's pretty intense.
