Just in case folks were wondering, you cannot get 4K/60Hz on this monitor via HDMI as you'd need HDMI 2.0 for that feature.

This. I got a 4k LG monitor over black friday and figured this out the hard way. Alternatively, you could use the DP port which would get 4k/60hz.

Would using an HDMI - DP cable give you the benefit of 4K/60? Might be a good option for those PS5/XSX owners hoping for a cheap 4K gaming experience.

it's indeed HDMI 2.0 port on the monitor, otherwise not making sense

Discrepancy between Costco specs and info in the Philips manual which indicates 2.0.

It's likely hdmi output port or cable is not hdmi 2.0 ready, most hdmi port on PC is not yet ready for 4k60, DP was ready for years
