    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Amazon had them listed for $799 for a week or two in March with a four to eight week delivery window. That's when I ordered mine. Presumably, once they sold the entirety of the allocation they were expecting, they pulled their own listing. Right now there's a third-party seller on the same page...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Yeah, that's why I was thinking of just sitting on it for a couple of weeks before doing anything.

    I checked with them first, figuring it'd be easier than going through Philips. I've got until May 16th to sort something out.

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    It's hard to see in the photo, but the bezel is noticeably displaced. It curves high like it missed a clip during installation or something. Regardless of the cause, it's a manufacturing defect, to be sure. I would absolutely just send it in for a refund and order another, except that Amazon...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Apologies for the cruddy picture. This monitor is proving difficult to photograph. It's more apparent at high angles and with solid colors. Amazon tells me they don't have any to spare for exchange and Philips is referring me to Amazon for replacement. The only redress I have right now is...

    I'm running a 7870 for the time being. I'm in it for the workspace, not necessarily to game. I'm typically on a couple year lag on games anyway, so I'm not sweating it too much right now.

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    My monitor from (US) Amazon showed up a day early. Ordered it on March 9. Didn't have much time to set it up before I had to run, but I did get it unpacked and set up. Quick initial impressions: It comes with a weird assortment of cables; power, HDMI, 3.5mm stereo patch, VGA, and RS232. No...

    In case anybody is still wondering about Amazon orders. I got a shipping update on mine. Supposedly arriving Wednesday April 15.

    Yeah, I've got a range of April 2 - April 24. Amazon is usually pretty good about hitting the early end of those kinds of things, though.

    Well, if my monitor was going to arrive on April 2, Amazon should have shipped today. I got no such notification. Anybody have a projected arrival date earlier than that? Have you shipped yet?

    Interesting. I just updated my shipping info (just reconfirmed and saved the original info) and it now gives me a range of April 2 - April 24. I'm really hoping for that April 2.

    Yours says a firm April 9? My purchase confirmation has a pretty huge range. I ordered mine on March 9th and I've got a delivery estimate of April 2 - May 15.

    Replacement for IP35-E

    I'd prefer to keep it under $100, if possible. I'm not looking for anything fancy. The chipset doesn't make any real difference to me. If there are better options than P35, I'm happy to go for it.

    Replacement for IP35-E

    I've got an Abit IP35-E that crapped out on me. I was kind of expecting to get some new hardware later this year but I'm not quite ready to go whole hog just yet. So I'm looking for a replacement motherboard to hold me over for a while. I've got a E4400 Allendale and four sticks of 800 MHz...

    I'm at wit's end - Windows 7 File Sharing

    Ah, gotcha. Nope. Same deal in all network "locations." I'm about ready to just accept that this will never work. I can't understand why. I had the same problem with this machine when it had XP. Other XP machines in the house were configured exactly the same way and had no problems. I'm about...
