Amazon have price matched the Scan.co.uk deal.

This is basically Philips 6 series TV minus all the TV stuff and more PC focused connectivity.

If you want a massive monitor, this, this price and this retailer is a legitimate option.

43", 16:9 4k (2160p), IPS, 8 + FRC, 28ms lag, 4:4:4

great price for the size but be wary of burn in issues, read about it on a number of forums and reviews on this screen

I was reluctant to order from Scan for that reason.

Input lagA sensitive camera and a small tool called SMTT 2.0 was used to measure input lag for the BDM4350UC. The monitor was compared to various screens of known latency, taking over 30 repeat readings to maximise accuracy. Using this method, we calculated 27.86ms (over 1.5 frames) of input lag. This value is influenced both by the signal delay (element you ‘feel’) and pixel responsiveness (element you ‘see’). It indicates a moderately high signal delay, which may be troublesome for some gamers but will be fine for others. Note that changing ‘SmartImage’ to ‘Game’ has no effect on this as it is purely a colour preset which does not alter pixel responsiveness or signal delay

guess that means not good enough for 60fps? which would be 16ms?

No, it's still a 60fps*. This is about lag between when you do something, and when it's displayed. (e.g. the time it takes from your graphics card rendering the output to the display picking up the display data, processing it, and then updating the pixels to show you what is happening. This is completely unimportant for things like watching video, mostly unnoticable in a desktop environment or playing slow games like rpgs,but for twitch action games it could be bad. 27ms isn't the worst, you'd just never be a pro counterstrike player. If VSync lag bothers you, this will. If you don't know what that is, you'll probably not notice this.

*I think the reviews say it has a frame skip issue every 2.5 seconds. Not something that most people would notice, especially with video or desktop work, but it might drive you crazy if you do a lot of gaming and see these things.

I have bought this in the past and both screens are having issues. Too big for desktop user on my opinion.

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

A bit late, as the price has gone up - but I use this near daily and have for a good bit of this year.

Not had burn in issues ; fine for a desktop monitor (mine is supplemented by a 28" AOC 4k to the left and the laptop's 15" 4k to the right.

The corners get used less than other parts; but nice for arranging work appropriately (ie development environments with many windows can have less used bits at the corners.)
Ideally I'd like bigger still, but curved.
