Rated 5 out of 5 by EnzoZoom Awesome BIG Display
I have owned this monitor for over 6 months now and absolutely love it. The colour brightness & contrast is really nice and having multiple windows open is fantastic. You quickly get used to the large size and it makes it impossible to want to return to a smaller screen size. For gaming I also think it is fantastic. The input lag is very low and I do not perceive any at all using high quality racing rig equipment. I race various titles like Project Cars, Assetto Corsa and Race Room Race Experience and all of them are so immersive in 4K. You need a GPU with plenty of grunt for gaming at 3840x2160 but is well worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dinkum Very good monitor
I am impressed with the large Philips Monitor. It's easy to use and has good resolution.
BUT... The $100 cashback arrangement is tricky, complex and slow. I am still waiting to receive it. Should I give up?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great all round
After much deliberation i finally purchased this monitor, picked up the $100 cash back to boot.
Perfect from the get go, exactly what i was looking for, great for gaming and terrific for the office.
The screen size and image quality are truly awesome, love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Box293 It's awesome
Great monitor, love the amount of screen real estate.
The only reason I would replace this is if another one came out that had:
1) A remote control
2) It was curved

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kbreaux01 Bezel issue
I picked up a slightly used unit from a reseller. The unit has apparently a bent bezel as there is a thin line at the top just under the bezel about 8 to 10 inches long. Is it possible the unit would still have warranty or is it possible to buy just the bezel?

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnD All you could ask for
Philips replaced the first one that was delivered because the top bezel was bent and there was a strip of light shining at the top of the screen. Anyway warranty was no problem, and this replacement is top quality.
Still getting used to the sheer size but it's so good to able to fit four 1080p size screens on the one screen, and then have the gaming filling my field of view.
There's a problem with the mouse cursor size in Windows 7, for some reason it is about 2-3 cm in full 4K res. Enabling mouse trails fixes it. It's a Windows issue but I haven't yet found a fix.
Recommend this monitor? Sure, if you can use its screen size and detail, it's fantastic. It's not for everyone but I'm glad I bought it.
By the way my NVidia GTX660 video card (which nowadays is mid range) comfortably drives this monitor at full-res.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Annoyed Great size and potential for 4K but otherwise really bad!
Only 7 days of ownership and this monitor is annoying me on a daily basis. I have updated all the drivers from the Windows 8.1 Pro operating system. Even a factory reset of the screen in question and enabled the smart features pkus downloaded the smart control application. Plus also played around with the displayport settings and using the Philips default displayport cable and yet.... the stupid screen frequently turns off by turning to a black blank screen with only a white power notification at the bottom where it says Philips.
I have to turn it off and on just to see the blue screen and Philips logo before it reverts to the desktop or anything that I am using.
What the heck is wrong with this screen? I'm planning on getting a refund because it fails to meet my expectations
