A swivel stand allows you to adjust the position of the display left or right, so you can position it to the desired angle.

353.1mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

1ms

Response time is how long it takes for a display to change the state of pixels, in order to show new content. The less time it takes to respond, the less likely it is to blur fast-changing images.
2.resolution

3840 x 2160px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
