Autocad is so yesterday.

New Philips 43" 4K monitor.

Hey Jta3,

Autocad used to be the shiznit .

I still think the 40" Phillips screen makes more sense because it gives you a higher PPI. Around ~110 is highly okay. I have a 27" at 110ppi and don't want to go down. It also makes everything more complicated, because you need to get an even bigger desk to support a 43" screen.

@jta3, how do you come up with the 70cm distance? Did you take into account how far the typical human being can look left-to-right without turning your head? Or did you guesstimate, based on you current setup?

70Cm seems to be a nice distance with two 40".
I use one 40" as primary, and it is just the right thing for one big chart or several minor chart.
My graphics card can do 4x4K.

Just to be clear; the setup Jta3 and now I am referring to is a dual 40 inch setup. I am thinking of getting the Phillips bdm4065uc, one now. And maybe another one, if I like it. Perhaps its more prudent to just get the monitors first and see if my desk is enough, at 80 cm deep.

@ schroedray: That's massive! 4.20 meters. But I understand you need more distance the bigger your screens get.

@ mokum: I think Jta3 included the desk size in his original post. I can't seem to link to images, but if you go back to page 3 you can see his drawing. Good point though, the stand shouldn't be forgotten.



Sorry about that it should be 110 cm I was looking at the ?? scale. (You know us americans and the metric system...)

The Philips 43" would be my monitor of choice if I had enough space in my cabinet (I use a custom cabinet enclosure so I can hide all my 'stuff' in my office). I'm considering getting hid of my cabinet (which I love btw) just because of this monitor.

I'm currently using a LG 31MU97C-B and considering getting a second one. I'm holding back because I'm not really happy with the heat it generates and the fact that it's not glossy which I much prefer (the Philips is the only 4K glossy that I could find).

Btw, it seems that 4K was made for trading. After using a 4K monitor for a while I can't get used to my old 1080p monitor that I have in another location. 4K truly rocks for trading!

Potential buyers of the Philips BDM4065UC should know that the screen uses PWM; and this causes problems. It's close sibling, the Iiyama ProLite X4071UHSU-B1, has similar issues. This can be read here on hardforum. For those who don't know about PWM, its something that starts to show up when you reduce the brightness of the monitor. There are videos on youtube which show you the PWM effect.

If you can accept a slightly lower PPI and a slightly larger screen, the new 43" Philips 4K display might be the one you are after. (Thanks jta3.) The new Philips BDM4350UC does not use PWM.


Quoting 
The Philips BDM4350UC does not use PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) at any brightness level and instead uses DC (Direct Current) to regulate brightness. The backlight is therefore considered flicker-free, as advertised by Philips. This will come as welcome news to those worried about visual fatigue or other side-effects of PWM usage or are otherwise sensitive to flicker.

Quote from Pc Monitors review.


Quoting 
The Iiyama ProLite X4071UHSU-B1 monitor is not aimed at the desktop, but at the PID market and the requirements specific to that market. (PID Public Information Display.)

Quote from hardform in reference to the Iiyama ProLite X4071UHSU-B1.


Quoting 
I do think it would be problematic having them in an angled multi-display setup. Unless you have a window only behind the monitors (which goes with its own problems), you'll capture some direct light from windows behind or to the side of you.

Quote from PC Monitors Youtube Review.

--

Making good large panels seems to be really difficult. Many displays have issues when you really start to look into it. Likely this will get better as technology improves and we have more choice. Ideally you want to have an IPS panel, with little input lag, 120HZ and no PWM, and probably not a glossy display. As of June 2016, there is not a single 4K 40" monitor that is perfect.

Hi,
Just wondering if there were any updates on the BDM4350UC 43" vs the 4065 40"

Looking at getting the 2 x 43" with a 1060gtx

I run with the 40 and 43 side by side. Both are nice, but the 43 is the better monitor. Brighter, clearer, and better colors. I had to extend the depth of my desk to get it far enough away from me, but it was worth it.

2x43 and 1060 would be really nice set up.

Advice on single 4K monitor for charts/DOM


Just set up a new Samsung Curved 43-Inch 4K Ultra HD TV to replace a two monitor setup. So far, so good.
But I'm having difficulty sizing the two charts I trade from plus my JigSaw Dom on the same screen. Also wondering about
connecting the computer to another HD port on the monitor/TV? What about window management software?

Any help would be appreciated.
