Monitor Eye Candy

Postby Hector Pascal » Wed Jan 25, 2017 10:26 pm

Hi all,

Just happened to see this Philips monitor advertised on Amazon and wondered if anyone here uses a 43 inch monitor with Finale? I would imagine it would be quite amazing. I use a second hand Apple 30 inch which is great, but even that seems small after a few years!

Here is the eye candy in question:
Philips Monitor Bdm4350uc 108cm 42.5in Ips Led 3840x2160 16:9
https://www.amazon.com/Philips-Monitor-Bdm4350uc-42-5in-3840x2160/dp/B01CO2QT4M

Cheers,
Hector Pascal.

I have it's 40" predecessor, and it's amazing. The 4k resolution gives you the screen area of 4 standard HD monitors. I could never go back...

Very interesting!
I will keep this in mind for my next monitor, methinks...

If your Mac has a Thunderbolt port, a simple adapter is all you should need. If not, there may be issues and additional steps you need to take to make a 4K display work — if it can.

Heck, I get a stiff neck dealing with my 27". I think a 40" would be asking for whiplash, as well!
