Same price as they're going for on eBay in the US, brand new, adjusted for currency. So pretty good deal for a purchase through official Dell channels.

27" is too small for 4k if you're looking for productivity use. You'll end up using scaling to basically close to 2560x1440 size. So you don't get extra "real estate" for productivity multi tasking.

Totally agree, reason i generally recommend 43” tv (ips panels) for those who want real estate for prductivity or just go with multiple screens.

Can get the Phillips 4k 43" IPS monitor at best buy for $550 right now.
And it supports plugging in multiple HDMI cables from your computer to make it 4* 21.5" screens at 1080p each.

It's amazing.

I prefer Samsung/Sony versions for slightly more (think they have been as low as $600) due to the Phillips reported issues (ghosting, bleeding, burn in, etc). Been considering one of them to replace my non gaming pc (running 4 monitors mix/match of various 1920x1200monitors i had, 2 of them mounted and 2 not lol). Of course not really a priority so i holding off till either a) old monitors die (and i have back ups so this isnt likely lol) or b) hot deal that results in an impluse buy

Sony and Samsung have multiview monitors?
I've only seen the Dell 43" multiview and this Phillips.

So this Dell has "fake HDR"? As in it can appear to devices as accepting an HDR signal but doesn't have the specs and capabilities to produce an actually good HDR image.

That sounds cool, I like stuff like that. I guess this is the monitor? https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/ph ... 24421.aspx?

Don't think so but windows can split/snap/divide the screen if you are using it as a monitor (as in no need to physically divide it when you could divide it in windows easily). I wasn't referring to Dell's Multi-client Monitor if thats what you're thinking. The only real purpose for Phillips multi-view is if you're using it as a security monitor and not using security camera that feeds to PC (since if its in windows, you can do split screen anyways).

Yeah, I went with a 4k 49" Haier. It is the best option IMO for someone cheaply looking for screen space.

I can quickly, thanks to Windows 10 snapping, get a 2x2 and a 1+2 grid. or go full screen.

Thing is a beast.

I'm not quite sure why people are so adamant that you need something bigger than 27" for 4k monitors when 27" iMacs are 5k these days.

split or snap only get you like a few windows visible at a given time. The rest you'd have to resize and fit as needed. not truly giving you the equivalent experience as four monitors.
on a 43" screen, I'd want to be able to get 8 different windows open and snapped.

I guess it depends what you're looking for.... but I'd much rather a multiview monitor for productivity over just a big TV.

I think its just because of the way windows handles scaling out of the box.
