Philips BDM4065UC 40-inch 4K UHD Monitor Review – Design & Connectivity

Saturday 9 April 2016 @ 4:48 pm

This 40″ 4K monitor is huge but it doesn’t look bulky thanks to its slim bezel and there’s no button on the front. The monitor’s dimension without stand is 904mm x 512mm x 88mm and weighs only 8.5KG. It comes with an elegant metal stand that is slim and metallic. However, the metal stand is not adjustable which means the height and angle of the monitor is fixed and you can’t even tilt the monitor. It does support a VESA 200mm mount though, so you can fix it to a stand or a wall and it will be more versatile with the flexibility in tilting and swiveling.

On the rear side, the VESA mounting screw holes are in the middle and there are 4 USB 3.0 ports (and 1 upstream port to connect to PC/laptop) on the right side. One of the 4 x USB 3.0 ports is a fast-charging port for quick phone/powerbank charging. There is an AC power port (for power cord) towards the bottom left. A pair of 7-watt stereo speakers is hidden beneath the monitor and face downward. Their frequency range is limited and the bass is not strong enough but it’s pretty loud though.

Connectivity Ports

Connectivity ports of BDM4065UC are located at the right side and there are plenty of them. The monitor is equipped with the following ports:-

  • 1 x VGA
  • 1 x DisplayPort 1.2
  • 1 x mini-DisplayPort 1.2
  • 1 x HDMI 1.4
  • 1 x HDMI 1.4 (MHL compatible)
  • 1 x audio in
  • 1 x audio out
  • 1 x RS232

Unfortunately HDMI 1.4 can only output 3840×2160 at 30Hz so the only option to enjoy a refresh rate at 60Hz is by connecting to the DisplayPort 1.2 port. One thing worth mentioning is that to get 60Hz at 4K working properly, you’ll have to enable it in the OSD (OnScreen Display) and changed the relevant option in the setup menu. One of the HDMI 1.4 ports is compatible with MHL (Mobile High Definition Link) technology. Therefore, you can directly connect a MHL compatible mobile phone to this 4K monitor and enjoy your mobile games, photos, movies, or other apps on its big screen while charging your mobile phone simultaneously. To my surprise, the MHL cable is actually included in the box!
