no way, how this can be used as a monitor, sitting 80 cm from the screen

Is this any good for gaming??

Ideal for CAD designers. Or Video editors.

So no good for gaming

How do people use multiple monitors? Easy, focus on one at a time. So don't use just one program on this, tile your windows. That's why the promo pics tend to show 4 things on screen at once.

Amazon reviews some suggesting burn in issues too:

amazon.co.uk/Phi…ews


If Amazon had the same prize then would had gambled, I believe Scan's return policy is more strict/difficult.

Hot for the price though, wished Amazon price matched

Can't decide on this. 43" 4K would be ideal, and the price is great but the reviews are so split. It'd be good to know whether they've made any revisions since it launched well over a year ago. And I don't trust Scan on a hassle free return!

This is an unreal deal :-)

I would say no for FPS but anything else should like great. May need a slightly beefier GPU and turn down a few settings to maintain 60fps.

That's the only problem with 4k screens you need a monster Gfx card to game with it.

heat. thanks op. ordered

So....

A sheep in wolf's clothing.

This is basically a TV panel in a monitor skin (with a TV stand) minus all the TV features (Smart TV with WiFi, Freeview, and remote control being most notable.). In the past this would have been a very bad thing as TVs weren't suitable as monitors as they often had lower Res., higher lag, less input options, etc., but these days 4k is the standard for new purchases, TV manufacturers build with consoles in mind (lag less than 30ms, and HDMI 2.0 is the standard.

The question becomes then, why buy a monitor vs. a TV? Monitors still aim for higher spec than TV panels, higher frequency and lower lag, and should not have the overhead of the TV features.

This unit appears to be a 43PUS6401 minus it's TV features, whether this a good thing or not is up to you - and as I can't find a retailer for the 6401 there isn't a direct comparison. Before purchasing it is definitely worth reviewing other 4k TVs at this price point - it's likely they'll have equivalent panels, extra TV features, the same frequency and similar input lag.

try to use 4k tv in word processor application, you will see the difference between tv and monitor, only high end tv come with Chroma 4:4:4 to ensure cristal crisp fonts

And the TV model I mentioned is 4:4:4 too.
Edited by: "EmptyArea" 23rd Nov

the main advantage it has over tv is it has a display port connection which would be pretty good to run at 60 fps at 4k

Has anyone seen a similar curved screen at good price?

I think I would struggle reading small text at the left and right of a 4k monitor this wide that is flat, because the sides will be so much further from view than the centre.

bought one, its going back. burn in after 20 mins of use. i could see youtube and my mozilla browser whilst trying to test a movie

Please add the word 'Monitor' into the title so people can find this by searching

Thanks


Review

Great monitor and really good price.
Shame about the vendor.

The corners are a little far away - ideally it'd be curved. But apart from that, I find it fine and use it daily.
I often run my (programming) IDEs with three columns, with the main work done on the middle column.
I don't find it 'hard to read', but do find myself using the corners less than I might on a smaller monitor.
