    I recently upgraded my work monitor to a Samsung UN40HU6950 40-inch/4K monitor; and, although it had some issues, I was willing to live with them for the additional screen real-estate.

    After getting used to the 40″ monitor at work, my 30″+20″ setup at home was definitely feeling too small. (It’s amazing how awesome these 40″ 4K monitors are!) I would have upgraded to another Samsung at home if it were just me; but, I knew some of the issues wouldn’t fly at all with my wife – who uses that PC when I’m not home.

    When I came across a chance to pick up this new Philips model, I jumped at it – even though I knew it was a small risk since there basically isn’t any warranty support until this is officially available in the U.S.

    Fortunately it’s working perfectly – and I’m very happy with it!

    In fact, it works so well that I purchased 2 more – so both myself and the other programmer in our company can both use one. He commented yesterday that it’s absolutely amazing how much more productive he can be with the larger screen (instead of multiple smaller screens); which is the exact same experience I had.

    [*** Screen Size ***]

    I remember when a 21″ CRT seemed giant! Then it seems like everybody migrated to 20″ LCDs, 24″ LCDs, and then either multiple monitors or 30″ LCDs.

    Since I’ve been using a 30″+20″ setup for several years, I thought that was the pinnacle for software development – but a 40″/4K setup blows it out of the water!

    It’s interesting that there are smaller 4K options available from several PC manufacturers – but I really don’t get the point of a sub-40″ 4K monitor. The 40″ size is perfect to truly take advantage of the added resolution without having to deal with scaling.

    Having said that, there are a couple of things to keep in mind:

    1) For some reason (probably because of the smaller 4K monitors that are available), Windows 8 automatically turns the scaling up to about 200% with this monitor. I would highly recommend bumping it back down to 100% to take full advantage of the size. (This can be done by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting ‘Screen Resolution’ – then click ‘Make text and other items larger or smaller’.)

    2) If you’re used to multiple monitors, you’ll want to install a window manager. I use ‘Winsplit Revolution’, which is an excellent free tool; but, it’s been discontinued. I suspect you can still find copies of it (or something similar) on the web somewhere.

    Honestly, now that I’ve seen the light, I’m looking forward to 50″/5K monitors in a few years (hopefully with a curved screen).

    [*** Picture Quality ***]

    I’m not very picky in this area; but, I’m not a graphics artist either.

    From a non-graphics-pro perspective, I think this looks great! (It’s definitely better than the Samsung – especially with the lingering 4:4:4 color space issues on the Samsung.)

    [*** Mounting/Stand ***]

    The stand that’s included with this monitor isn’t that great – and it’s not adjustable in any way. I will say that the ‘open’ design of the stand is kind of nice so it doesn’t eat up as much desk real-estate as some other stands I’ve used.

    I mounted the first one to the wall; but, the second and third are working fine with the included stand.

    The one that’s mounted to the wall uses a low-profile wall mount and the monitor looks absolutely fantastic! It also buys me more desk space since the monitor is completely off the desk – and it allows the monitor to sit back about 3″ further (toward the wall) than it does with the stand.

    [*** Ports ***]

    This is an area where the Philips leaves a lot to be desired.

    It has a built-in USB hub – but the ports are positioned in the back of the monitor. In other words, it’s pretty much completely useless… Personally I ended up using an external 7 Port USB 3.0 Hub instead of the one on the monitor.

    The power cable comes straight out the back – which is horrible for mounting this to a wall! I ended up having to pick up a right-angle power cord so I could mount this flush to the wall. (It’s fine for the 2 that are sitting on cubicle desks.)

    I’m used to having an SD card reader built into my monitor at home -…

    Really excited about this monitor. I had been looking forward to this thing since first reading about its APAC release late last year.

    This upgrade is taking the place of 2 other screens I had previously had in my mancave/game play/dev/programming haven. I previously had a 48” Samsung 1080p LED TV (~ 2010 or so.. ), and a 27 ” Apple Cinema Display . Previously I didn’t think monitors could get any better than that 27” Apple Cinema Display, but I am LOVING this upgrade. Going from the 1440p of the ACD to the 2160p of the Philips is astounding. I have been casually eyeing 4k monitors since the release of that main Samsung 28” model that everyone has. That thing is absolutely great, but you can’t really take advantage of the desktop space provided by 2160p if you are on a screen that small.

    The colors are definitely notably more “cool” on the Philips than the near-reference color reproduction on the Apple Cinema Display. I think this could be a deal breaker for someone who sensitive to that stuff. I think I definitely wouldn’t want the two monitors used side by side as the differences would be a bit too much. That said, used on its own, I think the colors still look great, they just have that “cool” feel to them. Full screen video looks amazing. Games look amazing. Looked up some recommended color settings on the internet and I was good to go.

    Tech stuff: My GTX 680 at home had no problem doing 4k60hz over Display Port, ( you do need to set the display options to use Display Port 1.2 in the menu, like a lot of others have reported ). My Nvidia Quadro 5000 at work however ( a much pricier graphics card!! ) could only push the display at 30 hz.. If you are buying this thing, you want to make sure you are getting 60hz. Even just using the desktop at 30hz feels subtly painful. If you are thinking of using HDMI2.0 for this, just do your homework on your graphics card to make sure it will all work. Then again, if you are buying this instead of a 4k Samsung TV for monitor use, you are probably doing it at least somewhat because this thing supports display port ( which will get you 4k60 with much older hardware ).

    Game stuff: I wasn’t really planning on running a load of games at 4k on my somewhat modest GTX 680, but I fired up Far Cry 3 for a minute and was able to get like 20 fps on ultra with 4k.. Wouldn’t play through the whole game like that I don’t think, but it was amazing to see the detail on objects super far in the distance. Really cool. Looking forward to playing more game at 4k once I upgrade graphics cards later this year or next year. Besides that, I will be playing mostly just at 1080p on ultra and blow it up for the most part. I also occasionally fire up the ol’ PS4 in the office ( what the 48” Samsung was used pretty much exclusively for ), this thing looks great doing that job as well. There are some super cool Picture in Picture settings on this monitor as well. You can display a bunch of 1080p inputs at the same time side by side or on top of each other. It works great, but the menu on the monitor used to turn it on / off is a little unwieldy. It works, just makes you work for it a bit.

    Display lag: the negatives that people might mention about this monitor usually have to do with its VA panel. Some people don’t like the color reproduction ( others swear that VA panels like this give the best color reproduction ), that is a bit subjective, but what isn’t is the display lag that comes with a VA panel. Here is the jist: this thing on paper has worse display lag than a lot of other monitors, but that number on paper is still super low in the grand scheme of things. I think the display lag is like 30ms or something, which is high compared to a lot of other computer monitors ( some of which have like 4ms display lag ), but its pretty low if you compare it to 4k Televisions ( which I did a lot of research on and purchased earlier this year, so I was familiar ). Basically, I am pretty sensitive to this stuff and this monitor is just fine in this regard I think. But maybe if you were playing like Rocksmith ( or another game with an interface that requires pin point timing ), you would have a bit more trouble than with a monitor that is focusing on a low display latency. I have also heard of some people complain about ghosting with this monitor, but I haven’t been able to pick up on it at all.

    Overall, its a great monitor for programming / desktop work. It essentially gives you 4x 1080p monitors in a single screen. I have visual studio windows everywhere!! XD. It also performs great if you want to use it for gaming. I am a big fan of watching like youtube videos and s*** while I work. This allows me to have Visual Studio take up half the screen real estate, while my program I am working on, a youtube video, and an ancillary web browser window can be open on the other half, its absolutley amazing and now when I come into work to my 30”…

    How to turn it on and set 60HZ at full resolution, May 11, 2015

    Power: Turning on the physical switch gave me nothing – I thought it was DOA. But when I pressed the joystick control, it sprang into action. Phew.

    Resolution / Frequency: My monitor is connected to an NVidia GEForce GTX960, running 3840×2160@60HZ. I had to do 2 steps to get 60Hz in Win8 (probably the same for Win7)

    1. Using the joystick on the back of the monitor, select Setup | Display Port | 1.2 (rather than default 1.1).
    2. Right-click screen | Screen Resolution | Advanced Settings | Monitor tab | Screen Refresh Rate | 60HZ

    Hope this helps. It feels FAR better in this mode than 30HZ.
