If you are in need for a big 4K UHD monitor, we might have something for you. We found a listing of Philips' BDM4065UC monitor, with a massive 39.5-inch UHD screen.

This is 100.5cm if you prefer the metric system and the monitor has a really tiny bezel and generally looks good. Philips calls this baby a 40-inch monitor for processionals, although many are bound to mistake it for a TV.

The 40-inch BDM4065UC supports 3840x2160 at 60Hz, a resolution better known as UHD, although it is sometimes referred to as 4K for marketing purposes. It uses VL LCD with W-LED system backlight type. It is a 16:9 screen and it has an 8.5ms response time (Gray to Gray) and with smart response it gets these values to more acceptable 3ms. With 300 cd/m² brightness, 5000:1 typical contrast ratio, 50,000,000:1 SmartContrast and 176º (H) / 176º (V) viewing angles, the BDM4065UC offers all that a professional needs.

There are plenty of connectors on the back side including legacy VGA, DisplayPort, mini DisplayPort, HDMI with HDPC and MHL-HDMI digital HDCP. It even comes with separate Sync and Sync on Green as well as RS232, built in 7W stereo speakers and PC audio-in and headphones out. It also comes with USB 3.0 hub 200x200 VESA mount as well as a Kensington lock. It is plug and play compatible with DDC/CI, Mac OS X, sRGB and Windows 8.1 / 8 / 7.

In Eco mode it consumes 40.4W and in standard mode it consumes a relatively modest 62.17W. The dimensions stand at 904 x 589 x 213 mm, or 904 x 512 x 88 mm without the stand. Built in MultiView technology enables dual active connect and view at the same time, which might come handy on such a large viewing space. The front bezel and rear cover are painted black, while the foot comes in silver. Philips uses glossy finish for the front bezel and a textured finish for the stand and rear cover.

You can preorder this monitor right now but there is no clear indication when retailers will be able to ship it to you. The cheapest that they are selling them on pre-order is €699 and up.
