Philips 4K 40 inches Monitor $699 HOT

I got this monitor for 899 in first week of September. Amazing monitor, use for pc, xbox one and ps4. Colors are great and I downloaded ICC profile from TFT central to get the most accurate colors out of this monitor. Really happy with the purchase but at 699 this is a no brainer. I wish I waited another two months.

4K - 60Hz - 4:4:4 Chroma

How far do you use this monitor though? Does your eye strains after using it for a long period of time?
Thanks.

If your desk is deeper than 2', you should be ok. I'm sitting about 1.5' away from it (until I move). With you sitting up too close, the edges are hard to see, but overall the monitor is great for productivity. (I upgraded from a 27" 4k)

Can you tell me what's the advantage of the Phillips compared to a 4K TV? The LG 43" is the same price on sale in flyer and is a 4K smart TV

You don't want to use a generic 4K TV for PC monitor use. You may encounter issues with Text and other fine details.

The 43" supports 4:4:4 chroma, so text should not be a problem. However the input lag is pretty high on the LG: http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/uf7600

Philips BDM4065UC image quality problems!!!

Using this as a daily driver, not even once I have encountered this issue since most of the content you view is not in boxes like the video. You will hardly ever encounter this if you are going to be browsing, watching movies or playing games.

56ms input lag on LG vs around 25-26ms lag on philips. Philips has better contrast ratio as well.

I sit 1.8-2 feet away from the monitor. No eye strains, been playing black ops 3 and tomb raider for hours.

I also have this monitor and bought it for $899

$699 is a huge bargain

I've had zero issues whatsoever with this monitor

40" is absolutely perfect size for a 4K monitor. Text size is roughly the same as with 1080p, except you get a crazy amount of screen real estate.

Main reason to go with monitor over TV is for the display port so you can do 4K at 60HZ (4K at 30HZ is stupid and lags like hell).

I might get this if they offer this deal online. I can just return it if it has has bleeding issues or if response is not good enough for gaming.

The size seems almost overwhelming to have on a desk and can only imagine using this monitor for gaming at 4k. How's the monitor for productivity, browsing, etc?
