With its unique size and curve on the screen, the model emerges as the largest curved 4K monitor on the market. There are no two opinions on the issue that when it comes time to buy a monitor, the first indicator we need to consider is the diagonal. The bigger it is, the more screen space the user has, so it's normal for everyone to look for the largest monitor that's within the budget.
Offering monitors with a diagonal of more than 24 inches is hardly surprising anybody, but the market has grown significantly in the direction of truly huge screens - with a diagonal of 32-34 inches, designed primarily for professionals.
Philips took another step forward by designing a 40-inch diagonal model, but this is just one of its distinctive features. Completely in line with current trends, the BDM4037UW has a curve on the screen, and combined with the unique size, it emerges as the largest curved 4K monitor on the market.
Owning something "at" is always a nice tickle for the owner's ego, but in this case it is not an end in itself, because the model offers enough qualities to justify its price and to become an indispensable tool for work.
The initial impression after removing the Philips BDM4037UW from the massive carton is that you are going to sit in front of a full-size TV. The main distinction is the white and silver hull, which gives the monitor a luxuriously luxurious look. For the pleasant perception, the thin frames around the screen also do not distract the eye from the huge picture.
The control of the settings is decided by a four-way joystick that requires some calling, but it does its job well. Traditionally for the brand, the monitor offers a variety of connection ports: HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0 and two Display Ports, as well as the classic D-Sub. They are easily accessible because they look "out" rather than down, and for each of the interfaces a cable is included in the monitor. Plus, there is a USB 3.0 hub with four ports, one for fast charging of mobile devices.
The person in front of the monitor will not have to refine its viewpoint to millimeters because the Philips BDM4037UW AMVA matrix offers wide viewing angles. As expected from this type of panel, the contrast is also at a high level - in the range of 3300: 1 to 3700: 1, with deep black and precise gray shades. A pleasant surprise is the even distribution of brightness and uniformity of color on such a large screen.
