4K / 40 Inch Monitor advice

Recommended Posts

Greetings chaps. Once again I need some advice from the experts lurking on here on 40 inch 4K monitors.  The ole buzzard has decided that the lounge needs re-arranging due to new furniture incoming that she bought. This means that I will no longer be able to run my gaming PC through my home theater as I do now, I am being evicted to the spare room which, unbeknown to her, will become my new cave. Its no big deal really but having been used to projectors and huge screens I will now have to get a decent size monitor, I recently pulled the trigger on a new GTX980ti SC so that's in there. I'm am going 4K and looking at the Phillips 4065UC 40" for $768 on Amazon. I had to have a heart to heart with the Mrs, I sat her down and held her soft hand and gently explained that it was just like when she buys a fancy new dress you have to get the shoes and bag to match, she completely understood where I was coming from and I got the green light ............ result ! ..... yeeees !! ..... get in !!!

 

So, chaps, I have been out of the monitor scene for so long I don't know whats what anymore, I have been reading up on Free-Synch, G-Synch and IPS stuff etc but I would be grateful for some advice on the best monitor of this size to go for, I can spend around $1k maybe a bit more. My gaming is mainly FSX, Dirt Rally and F1 stuff.

 

Cheers. Buster.

I just got a Samsung 40" 4K and its pretty awesome. I don't recall the model but it was a Cyber Monday deal for $400.

 

In general you can't really go wrong with any name brand 4K monitor.

It's a TV, I'm using the HDMI 2.0 input for 60 Hz. It's an older model that renders at 4:2:2 when running 60 Hz, but so far, its incredibly hard to see the artifacts after DPI scaling or when gaming.

 

640D is in the model name. You'll definitely be better off with a true monitor, I just couldn't pass up the deal at the time!
