A 43" UHD monitor...By Philips?

Philips announced a new 4K IPS display featuring an impressive screen size of 43 inches. If nothing else, the new Philips UltraClear 43-inch class 4K Ultra HD IPS LCD display is pretty huge.

Philips Goes Big With 43-Inch UltraClear 4K IPS Display

Looks pretty interesting, especially considering the price tag of $799 which puts it awfully close to other UHD displays which are almost half the size. Sadly it lacks FreeSync, but considering the price for a 43 inch 10 bit IPS display...I think this may be the world's first UHD display which can reasonably be used at UHD without display scaling. I wonder what Far Cry 4 would look like on it...

amdmatt​ you should buy one and post screenshots, think it's the perfect thing to finish off your build, at least until Polaris arrives

I can't afford it unfortunately.

Re: A 43" UHD monitor...By Philips?

Pfft, don't you know bling is more important than food!

But really it's a monitor aimed at the professional market, but it makes me wonder how they can deliver such a large panel for $800 when the Amazon.com: LG Electronics 4K UHD 27UD88-W 27" Screen LED-Lit Monitor: Computers & Accessories appears in all respects to be the same display for $700. Sure the LG has FreeSync and USB-C, but FreeSync is free and surely USB-C isn't adding that much to the cost, and surely not nearly as much as an additional 16 inches...Philips isn't exactly a name you associate with computer displays, or really even good name televisions anymore, much like Samsung.

As far as response time goes, I never put much stock into those ratings. I believe my first LCD monitor had a 15ms response time and mine now has a 6ms response time, and I never notice any ghosting. The color reproduction, viewing angles, and consistency of an IPS display far outweighs a "1ms" TN display. Before I got this HP ZR2440w I had a 24" Samsung Syncmaster, and the color and brightness shifting both vertical and horizontal was so abhorrent as to obscure objects on the borders of the screen.

look at the South Korean uhd monitors.. Crossover and Wasabi Mango, they get good reviews.  Look at the ebay seller store named green-sum

I've seen in another forum the new Wasabi Mango monitors are 60hz refresh, amd freesync,the newest hdmi port (hdmi 2.0?) and usb 3.0...  Think they are priced around $650ish USD.  I think they actually use LG panels, I actually think LG, Samsung,Benq and Phillips all use the same panels..  Heres a 40" uhd Wasabi Mango Wasabi Mango 40" UHD400 Reak 4K HDMI 2 0 DP1 2 3840x2160 LED Monitor Remote | eBay

I ordered my Crossover 32s 2560x1440 with freesync.. bought from from green-sum and it got to my house in Kentucky from south Korea in 3 days and Its a pretty darn nice monitor for $440..

I'm thinking I might move up to a 4k 40", 42 or 43" monitor by the end of the year to have uhd for Battlefield 1

The specs look great, but people are writing about ghosting issues on Amazon.

I got a 43" Philips TV a few months ago, what a mistake, can't do RGB/4:4:4.

Switched to Samsung TVs, I'm very happy now!
