    Everything checks out except size. The point of 4k is it allows you to use larger screen sizes without pixelation. Sadly many consumers are unaware of the relationship of size vs res or PPI and they are the target market for this type of display. Same goes for the 32" 1080p monitor posted earlier.

    It surprises me that Philips of all companies makes the first perfect 27" screen I might actually want to buy. No compromises here, if the specs hold up to actual testing. All previous 27" screens lacked one of the features, either no HDMI 2.1, no 144Hz, not at least HDR600, or they were curved, etc.
    I hope by the time this is actually available to buy, more companies have created screens with these specs.

    Mmm...? To me 27/28 inch is perfect for 4K (well, 5K would be perfect). 27" 1440p is not enough.

    32 zone LED backlighting would be fine for casual content, but professionals should note the halo effect will be very strong on these. Otherwise, a 30-32" version of these would be lovely. :)

    But not HDR TrueBlack
    Wich is really made for IPS screen...
    AOC/Acer have the same spec but with that new revision, Iiyama will have it too in a few.

    32" for 4K is a minimum for me and my sick eyes, also gray blacks and HDR cuz it's IPS, no thanks, I hate that :p

    im packing a 4k 65" LG oled,HDR 120 htz gsync hdmi 2.1 screen. never again will i purchase a typical monitor. it isnt good for colour accuracy but for movies and games its amazing.
    These dimming zones is just a bust. it has to be Oled and every pixel is its own dimming zone.

    Its just outstanding how there is no light bleed, the contrast is just fantastic.

    DisplayHDR TrueBlack is designed for OLEDs, not conventional LCDs.

    Then i have IPS with cerification TB600 lol
    Read ALL the line... it's not JUST FOR, it was originaly MADE FOR, but not only, as now the led are more small and many monitor have the same problem with black.

    o.k. here we go...

    LCD displays are inherently inferior but are common because they are more price effective than plasma. that's the only reason LCD is common considering the market has even further abandoned CRT.
    once you build the factories you're literally invested.

    everything about LCD panels is a work-around.
    and the type doesn't matter whether TN, VA, or IPS.

    but let me deliver a few thoughts from someone from the industry...

    1) multi zone backlighting when done correctly is vastly superior to all forms of LCD.
    yes, there have been some poorly designed panel backlights, most of which were
    early days or an inferior manufacturer. all forms of backlighting have problems and not all LEDs are created equally or implemented correctly.

    2) direct per pixel illumination is the only solution for display problems as we know
    them now.
    and the only way to do that feasibly is OLED and micro-led.
    and the only real quibble with OLED is price, with micro-leds not available yet.

    on the point of this Phillips set, HDR 600 is the minimum anyone buying a new monitor should consider.
    a proper HDR 600 turns out better IRL than a lesser HDR rating or one not rated at all. HDR 400 is not true HDR, it's HDR compliancy at literally the lowest level.
    you need true 10 bit processing with no edge-lighting, not just a brighter display.

    frankly every comment i see about "haloing" or "IPS glow" is more present with edge lit than directly lit panels. which i see as just sniping from those not in the market. also, don't go expecting a Ferrari at Yugo prices.
    if a cheap panel hits HDR 600 or more look at one at a brick and mortar before you buy. chances are the LED's aren't spec built and are overdriven.
    also screens (not just the panel) have Optical Properties, including light diffusing (or not).
    the more zones of led lighting the better with less artefact. the size of the leds matter too. smaller leds are better, mini even more so, and micro the best.
    the pattern of the led array matters as well

    these are just facts separate from the noise
    .
