Why don't they just call it a 4k monitor?

I think the manufacturers are trying to market 4K as "Ultra HD", it's sexier on the print ads. Remember when the new TV's were marketed as High Def and no one knew what 1080P was?

Yeah but High Def didn't always mean 1080p

I remember them calling both 720P and 1080P High Def, and they didn't include 720P/1080P in the model name or advertising. You had to look up the specs to see if you were getting a 50" TV with 1280x720 resolution, where the pixels were about 1/16" across. For $4k.

IIRC they were also relatively free with the use of "1080i" as a spec.
