Ask LH: What Is 4K, And Should I Buy A 4K Display Right Now?

Dear Lifehacker, 4K TVs hit the market last year and lots of companies are in the process of releasing budget-conscious 4K monitors. I like the idea of higher resolution, so is this something I can benefit from, or should I just stick with the monitor I have?
