Philips BDM4037UW curved ‘4K’ UHD VA monitor

The Philips BDM4065UC and BDM4350UC are screens for those who like them big, glossy and with plenty of pixels. Aside from the slight size difference, the panel type really sets these models apart with the older model being VA (Vertical Alignment) and the newer model having an IPS (In Plane Switching) type screen. The newer model also introduced a ‘flicker-free’ backlight, which many users welcomed.

Philips BDM4350UC 43 inch ‘4K’ UHD IPS monitor

The Philips BDM4065UC is certainly one of the most interesting models we’ve come across. Its large size and high resolution VA panel offered a rather engrossing gaming experience whilst making the resolution very accessible without scaling. The Philips BDM4350UC is an even larger model, truly massive for a monitor, and is what the company considers the successor to the BDM4065UC.

Philips 276E6ADSS with Color IQ Quantum Dot backlight

In our ‘Evolution of LED Backlights’ article, we take a look at some of the progress that has been made in the field on monitor backlighting technology. Some recent designs such as ‘GB-LED’ and RB-LED’ backlights, for example, yield greatly enhanced colour gamuts compared to standard WLED solutions. They also add considerable cost to the product, however.

Philips BDM3490UC with curved 34 inch AH-IPS panel

There are now a number of 34” 21:9 ‘UltraWide’ options available with the 3440 x 1440 resolution, including the Samsung S34E790C and Dell U3415W that we’ve reviewed. As with the latter model and the likes of the LG 34UC97, the Philips BDM3490UC uses an AH-IPS panel. It is housed in a rather unique chassis that makes it look like some sort of prop from Star Trek – and we mean that in the nicest possible way.

Philips 272P4APJKHB with wide gamut AHVA panel

LG and Samsung have now released a number of models which use AH-IPS or PLS panels and a GB-LED backlight design to achieve extended colour gamuts. Rival panel manufacturer AUO have their own equivalent backlight design called RG-LED which they are implementing on some of their own IPS-type (AHVA) panels. The Philips 272P4APJKHB (known as the 272P4APJKEB in some regions, such as the US) makes use of such a panel, housing it in Philips usual high-quality robust housing.

Philips BDM4065UC 40 inch UHD (‘4K’) monitor

The UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160 can bring incredible levels of detail and high pixel densities to relatively small displays. Unfortunately a lot of applications don’t scale nicely, if at all, and therefore some content can be very difficult to read whereas others looks stretched if windows scaling is applied. We found scaling a ‘necessary evil’ even on a 28” UHD display.
