    I'd love to see how this compares to say, an LG or Samsung 4K TV.

    How is the uniformity when compared to the BDM4065UC?
    Facts don't exist, only interpretations.

    The Philips BDM looks nicer than this and is only £50 dearer (£499) on Amazon.

    For the price it looks very good but after seeing the luminescence test I'd want to see one in the flesh 1st I think.
    Mind you, never bothered about it in any monitor I've owned before.

    Yeah this is what always gets me. When buying TVs I NEVER look at them in a showroom, because you get tripped up in the comparison of greater beasts. Once you've got it at home you get used to it

    Re: iiyama ProLite X4071UHSU-B1

    Is it just me thinking its too big?

    In a search for a UHD screen I did look at 40" displays as the pixel density would be similar to my 27" 1440p monitor.

    In the end I got a 24" UHD acer, and I must say The higher pixel density is great, I will admit I am running at 125% scaling but even with that the extra real estate is amazing.

    I just think for the distance I sit from my monitor (probably similar to many others) 40" would mean me actually having to move my head to see all the screen which I don't think would do me much good.

    It's just a 4K TV without the TV connections. If you don't actually use a TV box and watch TV entirely from the internet it could be a good value investment compared to the same spec TV.

    I'd be interested in a 47-50" version with freesync and a remote. The idea of a TV without the smart ''features" and spyware would be appealing.

    I use three 21.5" monitors in a row, and can work on any two without moving my head. I suspect that you would find your eyeballs were getting exercised though

    Re: iiyama ProLite X4071UHSU-B1

    As one of the relatively early adopters of trying out the new 4K screens I think that progress has been made and the advantages of greater screen clarity and a certain amount of future proofing can make it a worthwhile experience. I struggled to satisfy a Acer CB280HK,( a Monitor which initially seemed determined to refuse any connection combination) with a suitable graphics card without breaking the bank. After a number of trials I settled on a 4Gb MSI 730 which once the DVI cable protocols were sorted out has performed without cause for concern on grounds of performance overall. I use the screen for TV as well as everyday activity and would not go back to a 2k set up It compares well with my 4K LG TV purchased shortly afterwards. So if you are dithering over whether now is the time to try 4K I hope you can be convinced that the latest technology is sufficiently matured to provide a real improvement in viewing overall

    I have 2 23" monitors what aren't a problem.

    The thing is you line to top of the monitor with you norm eye line and its natural to look down for the reat of the the screen, with a 40" I can't see this working which would lead to having to look up which we don't actually do as much as you would imagine.

    I suppose I could move it further away but then i might as well get a smaller screen and sit closer.

    I will say as a HTPC user having one as a 'dumb' tv sounds good as I don't use any of the 'smart' features of my current TV, just no monitors are big enough so far.

    Does it share the color bleeding and pattern scrambling problems of the Philips 40" 4K?

    Can you please give the color/luminosity/contrast parameters you used as well as the color profile ?
    (I know profiles are individual but in my experience it's better than nothing.)

    I would say if you can wait just do, better panels expected in some time.
