Philips BDM4037UW

 

The Philips BDM4037UW is a massive 40-inch monitor with a whopping 3840 x 2160 (4K) resolution. Its LCD panel is also curved and mounted on a slender metal base, while its impressive 4000:1 contrast ratio should make it fantastic for watching video.

Philips Brilliance BDM4037UW review: A 40-inch, curved 4K UHD ultrawide display

 

The Philips Brilliance BDM4037UW is the new top-end product in Philips's range of office displays. With a 40-inch (101.6cm) diagonal, curved (3-metre radius), 16:9 aspect ratio, A-MVA 3 LCD panel, the BDM4037UW has a native resolution of 3,840 by 2,160...

All connectors extend at right angles to the back of the casing ; Tilt is the only pedestal adjustment (-5/10 degrees) ; VA rather than IPS panel

Der 40 Zoll große Monitor mit Curved-Display, der Philips BDM4037UW, kann im Test nicht auf ganzer Linie überzeugen. Im Testlabor zeigt der Kandidat immerhin eine starke Top-Wertung: Im Bereich Energie-Effizienz überzeugt er mit sehr angemessenem...

riesiges Curved-Display mit UHD-Auflösung ; Lautsprecher und USB-Hub integriert ; angemessener Stromverbrauch

Philips BDM4037UW UHD-Monitor im Test

 

Der UHD-Monitor Philips BDM4037UW besitzt ein imposantes Curved Display mit 40 Zoll Diagonale. Trotzdem ist der Display-Riese mit einem Preis von knapp 700 Euro vergleichsweise günstig.

PHILIPS BDM4037UW 40 4K Ultra HD LED Monitor

 

Could a monitor be too big? I love it - I am a good distance from the screen, and it still fills my vision, but very comfortably. No squinting, and no strain. Great. Outrageously too big, perhaps? Yes, probably, but what the heck!

Vesa mounts to rear prevent a lot of wall mounts fitting, because the actual plates cover the access ports beneath - I had to send a mount arm back because of this. I cannot find another without considering spending too much money. However, working...

PHILIPS BDM4037UW 40 4K Ultra HD LED Monitor

 

The size is amazing. Picture quality is pretty great too.

There is a slight color fade when you look from the edges but this isn't noticeable with normal use. My greatest gripe is the inability to adjust height.
