Product Information

  • Overview

    With its 32-inch class (31.5-inch diagonal) screen size, 3840 by 2160 Ultra-HD resolution, and energy efficient edge lit LED backlight, the Sharp PN-K321 monitor is ideal for professional applications where it's essential to view detailed information displayed with tremendous precision. This super-high resolution display boasts four times the resolution of 1080p full HD, allowing you to view the content of four full HD screens on a single seamless display. And because IGZO* technology supports increased pixel transparency and reduced current leakage, the display consumes less power.

    Note that 4K DisplayPort operation is only compatible with the new Mac Pro (Late 2013).

    4K HDMI operation is compatible with MacBook Pro (Late 2013) and the new Mac Pro (Late 2013). HDMI input is not available in the European-market Sharp PN-K321.

    Bought this for my up and coming Mac Pro which won't be here for another couple months. Works on my late 2013 13" rMBP at 3840x21 Bought this for my up and coming Mac Pro which won't be here for another couple months. Works on my late 2013 13" rMBP at 3840x2160x30Hz as advertised, but also shocked that my Mid 2011 27-inch iMac, not advertised as able, is actually driving it at this same full resolution & refresh rate (with AMD Radeon HD 6970M 1024 MB) using the DisplayPort cable that came with the display. Slightly slow and jumpy, but the resolution is full and legit. Text looks better when display installed upside down as the subpixel text rendering expects the pixels to be divided R-G-B and this monitor has it reversed, B-G-R. Until OS X supports B-G-R natively, the included stand allows upside down mounting and then simply rotate it 180 degrees in system preferences.

    Absolutely the best overpriced item I have ever bought. The colors are brilliant and come as close to my prints on my Epson photo Absolutely the best overpriced item I have ever bought. The colors are brilliant and come as close to my prints on my Epson photo printer as no other display I've used before. It definitively beats any Apple display (including "Retinas"). Mounting and setup was a breeze. This is an absolute must have for anyone willing to spend the extra buck as an early adopter of new technology. I have also found the price Apple sells this item at to be decently competitive.

    Just installed TWO Dell UP3214Q on a late 15" 2013 rMBP with discrete Nvidia GeForce 650m. Let's remember the Dell 4K, which has t Just installed TWO Dell UP3214Q on a late 15" 2013 rMBP with discrete Nvidia GeForce 650m. Let's remember the Dell 4K, which has the same IZGO screen.
    DisplayPort 1.2 can be enabled on the Dell OSD.
    On MacOS X Mavericks, the rMBP runs it's screen at full res @ 60Hz, the 2 4K monitors at full res but only @ 30Hz.
    In Windows 8.1 in bootcamp, the rMBP runs it's screen at full res @ 60Hz, the 2 4K monitors at full res @ 30Hz refresh if DisplayPort 1.2 is disabled, but can only run it's screen and ONE of the 4k at full res AND 60Hz with DP1.2 enabled.
    INTERRESTINGLY, if you "SOFT disconnect" the rMBP own screen it will then drive both 4K monitors at full res AND 60 Hz, WOW!!!
    There you have it. The late 2013 runs 2x 4k screens at full res.

    The first one I received failed after 2 weeks of use. A permanent vertical blue line on the left side of the screen showed up on The first one I received failed after 2 weeks of use. A permanent vertical blue line on the left side of the screen showed up on all inputs.

    The picture, when working is great. This monitor has a lot of functionality of TV, but is missing a remote.
    I don't know what Sharp was thinking not including a remote for this monitor since it has multiple inputs and a built-in speaker.
    A remote for controlling switching of inputs, volume, menu, and on/off would be extremely helpful, especially if you have this monitor mounted on wall.

The monitor displays great colors and images, but it looks and feels like a low cost plastic PC monitor. At $3.5K it should look like an apple product and work like an integrated engineered apple computer. I'll wait for the $1K 4K Apple displays.
