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 BDM4037UW 40in 4K Curved Monitor Review


Let nobody try to convince you otherwise: size matters. Bigger is usually better, even with smartpho Finding monitors just too small? then how about this new Philips 40 inch 4K panel?

Philips BDM4037UW


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...

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...
