[PCMonitors] Philips BDM4037UW Curved VA 4k 40” Monitor - Page 3

post #21 of 494
If this was OLED it would be my perfect monitor.

That size, resolution and 4000:1 contrast sure are appealing and I wouldn't mind spend more than 1000€ for monitor, but so far all those expensive monitors have too many short comings.

In this case, no freesync and not enough Hz. This should be at MINIMUM 100Hz model, and preferably 120-144Hz. 60Hz today's world is just no go. Sorry philips, too little too late again.

Why does anybody care about having more than around 70 or 80hz? Can you really notice a difference?

Yes. The smoothness of 144Hz compared to 60Hz is VERY noticable.

But if i'm going to have higher refresh rate, the input lag of these 40" 4K monitors has to come down more.

My crossover 44K (which uses the same panel as the phillips panel) has very noticably higher input lag compared to my 1440p 144Hz 1ms panel. To the point where i literally am unable to even play any PvP or FPS competitive games on it at all. But the 40" 4K is really great for the visual games that don't need the instant response. Because of how good the 1440p 144Hz 1ms is, and how beautiful 4K @ 40" is, that is why there are so many wanting the best of both worlds. 4K and 100Hz+ and 1ms response times is the holy grail. The curved panel and gsync is just gravy really but those are relatively easier to implement. Right now you can only get bits and pieces.

Don't know if you have had any experience, but no offence if you can't tell the difference between 60Hz and for example 100Hz, you'll have to get your eyes examined.

I had one of those korean OC monitors and I can spot even between 60 vs 75 hz. 90Hz over 60 is already a big step and 120Hz is really smooth after that you don't want to go back. Although now I have 75Hz VA because couldn't stand the IPS glow.

You will probably be able to get this exact panel and such from a Korean mfg for $700 or so. Catleap, Wasabi-Mango, NCIX, or someone of the sort will sell it on the cheap.

Trade off is a garbage gui for fixing the brightness, color, contrast etc. etc.

My question wasn't 60hz versus 100hz. It was 80hz versus 100hz.

I can notice a difference between 60 and 75, but I feel like past that you don't get much additional benefit. So if this overclocks to around 75 or 80 then it's fine.

40" curved is like a perfect size for a monitor. The first 40" 4K 120 Hz display will be an instant buy from me.

Based on the fact that their current 43 inch monitor is north of $1200, this thing will be priced above that without a doubt. You are paying the curved tax.

People asking for 120hz at 4K is kind of strange. We are 3 years away from mainstream cards managing 60FPS at 4K yet people want 120hz panels now to chug along at 50FPS on a Titan XP.

GPUs are not. 4K is a monster in new games.

Right, "New Games", thus 99% of any given videogame library is 4K 120hz ready as long as you have high end hardware (1070 or similar).

And new games can get close if you play with the settings.
Half the point is that regardless of whether you're running at 90fps or 120fps, we need monitors that support the highest spec, and eventually every game will be playable at 4K120hz, it's only a matter of time.
