Toms! Please review these monitors on release! Spec-wise the 40" monitor is exactly what I am looking for to replace my old 28" monster. It will offer slightly higher pixel density, and a lot more real estate than my current monitor. Plus with newer backlighting technology I will finally be able to get away from the bleed issues I have had to live with for the last 6 years.

... I suppose I will also need a GPU to power the thing. I wonder if the 970 is going to come down in price between now and then.

Im so excited for the 40inch computer monitor segment...at 40inches, the 110dpi is in the sweet spot shared by 27" 1440p displays. Combine this with G-Sync and (pipedream) OLED...stick a fork in me,, display heaven

I've been waiting for a 40-42" UHD monitor to come out for some time now. Ideally it would be the same height as a vertical U2412M so I can put the two I have on the sides of it. I might need to wait for 16:10 versions to get the perfect size though. If they will even make them.

The other option would be to wait for a 21:10 monitor with the same height as the U2412M. This seem even more unlikely though. Would probably need to settle for a 21:9

I use a 40" Toshiba LED for my monitor right now. 1920x1080. It will be nice to see monitors and or 4K tv's with 1080P,1440P and 4k resolutions. That way people can go in steps up to 4k gaming depending on their graphics card capability.
 
Can't wait for the HDMI 2.0 version. Why would I buy one that is limited to 30hz when in a couple of months it'll be 60hz? Assuming this has good refresh rates for gaming. I'd love to replace my old 24" 1920x1200 display.

12-bit refers to the monitor's processing, and not the color depth.

10 bit (8+2) is the highest you can actually get on a monitor.

This monitor, according to other sources is actually 6-bit, in other words, crap.

Cheers.

I'm surprised how ignorant you can be and still call yourself a senior editor at Tom's.

Philipps has released a 40" VA 4K panel, they were the first out of the gate. This is basic facts when it comes to this kind of news. Seems like Tom's reputation for going downhill isn't unwarranted.
Embarrassing.

"This monitor, according to other sources is actually 6-bit, in other words, crap."

Highly unlikely. The only VA panels that came in 6-bit were from Samsung (cPVA) and those were dropped a long time ago. 6-bit panels are popular with the many e-IPS screens (e.g. Dell U2412) and many TN screens, not VA.
