First and foremost, you should know that Apple in Europe has entered with the Manufacturer a period of three years, that only Apple may sell the Sharp 4K monitor.

You are therefore required for Europe to order the monitor through the Apple Store.

But at the Apple Store for Europe (Belgium) is literally to read the following:

– Note that 4K Display Port operation is only compatible with the new Mac Pro (late 2013)

– 4K HDMI control is compatible with Mac Book Pro (late 2013) and the new Mac Pro (late 2013).

– HDMI input is not available in the European version of Sharp PN-K321.

So it comes down to if you want to buy A Sharp 4K in Europe, you are required to include the Mac Pro to your list.

Because you can not connect the Sharp 4K monitor to a HDMI, even if your graphics card has a Display Port on a Windows PC………………….. this is pure madness.

And then Apple is wondered why they only have a market share of +/- 2% in Europe.

    @ knutazz. In Belgium we can not buy the SHARP 32″ PN-K321H. Only the SHARP 32″ PN-K321 and as I say we can only order the monitor on the Mac Store for Belgium.
