Giant Philips 4K Monitor Delivers Massive Bang For The Buck

March 11, 2015

When you interact with a desktop computer, the monitor determines just how much you can see. One measure of size is the diagonal measurement in inches and the Philips 4065 UC measures in at 40 inches. Yea, it’s that big. Another way to measure the size is the number of pixels displayed and this beast delivers a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. Look at the photo below to see how four full HD screens of data can fit on this single screen.

Sure, there are plenty of televisions with bigger screens. But you typically sit several feet away from those giant TVs. Now imagine 40 inches of monitor sitting two feet in front of your face. I’ve been using a 30 inch monitor for eight years now and I am drooling just thinking about an even bigger monitor that delivers such a high resolution. Because of that high resolution, you’ll want a larger size so that interface elements on the screen are reasonably sized.

A monitor this big doesn’t come with a bargain basement price. Yet the $1450 list price isn’t nearly as large as I would have expected. Even better, it was selling for $969.45 at Amazon as I was writing this post!

You can’t drive this monster without a recent vintage video card. In order to get 60Hz refresh, you’ll need a card that supports Display port 1.2. The EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti card that I featured a few months ago has everything you need for this monitor and sells for around $150.

Sure, you can run your favorite software full screen. In many cases, the better option is to have multiple programs running on different parts of the screen. This scenario will take your productivity to a much higher level which allows this monitor to deliver the most bang for your bucks.
