    LG 48CX

    Thanks for the link, this has suddenly made this monitor/TV a possibility for my setup.

    LG 48CX

    That page shows the 48CX under the "European 2020 LG OLED CX series" only? Not sure if that means it's only an EEA model, that would be a shame if it is.

    Samsung 2015 Monitor Killer ---> LG GX / CX 2020 G-sync Monitor / TV - Thoughts?

    Weight and desk arm mounting is a concern for me, the text rendering too. But otherwise the new LGs looks promising.

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Ugh, these reports of failing backlights just outside of warranty period are starting to worry me a bit. I've noticed a definite shimmer at the top of the screen when I turn the monitor on, which disappears after an hour or so. Anyway, I think I'll need a new screen soon, but nothing currently...

    LG 48CX

    After a bit of uhming and ahhing about this, it seems like it might be my next upgrade. Just need to know about the weight of it, vesa mounting size and (most importantly) price.

    Asus ROG Swift PG43UQ with 43.4″ VA Panel, 4K Resolution and 144Hz Using DSC

    I wanted to make a separate thread for this monitor (the earlier edition was the XG438Q model. Or XG438). I think many people are looking for a 40-43inch PC monitor, and this is the 2020 offering from Asus this year. This ticks a lot of boxes for me in the spec - but needs reviews before I...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Please let us know how you get on. I don't have serious issues with my screen, like I said it's a minor flicker when I first turn it on then it's fine. But I'm interested to know how they'll respond outside of the warranty period. To be honest, I'm more interested in upgrading the screen but...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Bought my monitor in 2015, and it's still going well, but I have noticed it is slightly darker at the top - perhaps in the top 1/8th of the screen? Also, it flickers faintly in that same area when it comes out of sleep mode, but that goes away after around 5 minutes. It's not enough to make me...

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    So I've been watching this monitor for a while, and I think it's an utter disgrace what Asus have released here, especially under their ROG brand. Smearing? Dodgy sub-pixel BGR layout? Hacks and cleartype settings needed to improve clarity? Asus can f*** right off with this. It makes me angry...

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    Looks like an excellent gaming monitor - but a) needs confirmed Nvidia compatibility and b) a VESA mount. Oh, and can this thread be renamed to include "Asus XG438Q" in the title somewhere?

    Frustration - I can't find THE 40-43" 4K All-purpose monitor - suggestions?

    Interesting, I'll keep an eye out for those. I'm also hoping that we'll see some of the same tech seen in the Nvidia BFG displays, but in smaller form (and hopefully a bit more affordable too...). There's no way I could use anything bigger than 40-43" at a desk with 2 foot distance away. 40...

    Frustration - I can't find THE 40-43" 4K All-purpose monitor - suggestions?

    I'm in exactly the same boat as you, same current monitor. It was revelatory when I bought it three years ago, but now I'm itching and convinced there must be something better out there. Having searched high and low, I can't find anything nor see anything in the immediate future. So I'm not...

    Will we see a 4K, GSYNC, FALD HDR monitor, 60Hz at human price?

    40 inches. Nothing less. Maybe 43 inches. But no more. TVs are doing it right, monitors are not. I'll wait.

    Philips Momentum 43" 4K HDR gaming display

    It's interesting you've found this, because here in the UK this is still not a widely available monitor - most are European imports. So I do wonder if the /00 is like a "trial" model and the /01 is the eventual model that will be widely distributed. If they've solved the dithering issue with a...

    Sony X900F 49" 4K TV as display

    It's good you've found a way around it, but it still sounds like a conection or firmware issue to me. I wonder if anyone else has had it, or if Sony support can provide any advice? It sounds like you've done all the right things trying to diagnose it yourself though.

    Sony X900F 49" 4K TV as display

    That's an odd one. Maybe a firmware update would solve it? I'm really interested in this screen. A couple of questions - Does it support other resolutions outside of 1920x1080 and 3840x2160p? E.g 800x600 or 1280x1024. I sometimes play older games that require a lower resolution. Is the stand...

    Sony X900F 49" 4K TV as display

    Good to know. It appears they do offer the 49" model in the UK (and Europe). The model is KD-49XF9005 and the pricing is very competitive. I'm seriously tempted to make the jump up from my current 40" Philips monitor.

    Sony X900F 49" 4K TV as display

    Hi mr_zen256 thanks for your opinions on this model, much appreciated. How do it look when using it for desktop use? Like for web browsing, navigating desktop etc.? Is it clear, how do static images look?

    Philips 436M6VBPAB. Is this the best gaming immersive monitor?

    There is already a thread on this, but we should probably forgive you as it doesn't state the model name as clearly as your post :) https://hardforum.com/threads/philips-momentum-43-4k-hdr-gaming-display.1959298/#post-1043656241 I'd agree it does tick a lot of boxes. The review is very...

    Gsync 4k 144hz HDR monitor prices 'released'

    I've been running stuff at 2160p for the last 3 years and yes, I don't see why we should accept anything less,especially given the direction of TVs and consoles.

    Wasabi Mango 43" 4K 120hz

    i'm all for competition, but it seems impossible to find any reliable information. Searching for the model name UH430 brings up lots of results from 2016. 4K screens with HDMI 2.0 inputs

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    I'd echo this. I've owned the monitor since February and not had any ghosting. IMO, it's perfect for gaming both fast & slow. Assuming you have a 970+ graphics card or thereabouts. In the 3 months I've owned it, twice I've seen the display drop down to 30Hz, but being half the refresh rate...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    I spent two months reading comments and reviews about this monitor. So glad I bought it - it's a superb monitor. Best techy thing I have bought in ages. Simply beautiful colours, blacks, motion, gaming quality, image clarity - I could go on. I will only concur with others who say that it's an...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    For those in the UK shopping for this, I'm watching: - Amazon.co.uk for £605. ETA is 1-2 months. - Overclockers.co.uk for £690 (!). Available now. - Dabs had it for ~£570, but by email they informed me today that the product had been discontinued by the manufacturer! Some mistake maybe? Any...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Thanks, is that running at native 4K res? What's your PC spec? I'm struggling to tell what the pixel performance is like from that video - initially I thought the colours were smearing slightly on fast movement, but on second glance I'm not sure if it's the video camera or video...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Hi MrGrumpie, Many thanks for your thoughts, could you help with a couple of questions? 1. If you have two sources connected, e.g. by DP and HDMI, how easy is it to switch between them i.e. do you need to go through OSD menus or is there a simple physical switch? 2. Does 1080p scale up well...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    My TV source is 1080p coming from a PVR (via an AV amp) so I'm hoping the display will upscale it?

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    I'm considering either this monitor or one of the new 21:9 super wides. As I use my current setup for TV too (regular UK 1080p 16:9), can anyone advise how 1080p would look on this monitor? Will it upscale to the full size of the monitor, and will it look good?
