BDM4350UC Monitor - Request for improvements .
This is request for some small improvements that can have great effect on user experience .
1- Support for PIP/PBP from smart control software
or other application . this is a MUST .
2- Ability to disable the 1 bit black line between windows in PBP mode .
When I use 1 PC with multi screen I would like to have
one smooth picture cross wide . with no line in the middle .
3- Ability to disable automatic screen feed change in PBP mode .
when main input is off , screen may choose other
input that has working feed , not always desirable .
4-In PBP 2 windows would like to have 2 higher windows
like 1920X1200 or even 1920X1400
windows keep compress to 1920X1080
5- In PBP 2 windows would like to have 2 "rotated" windows of 2160 X 1920 ( or other resolution )
Like many physical screens support 90DEG rotation .
All my suggestions are software only
I believe within Philips capabilities . with small effort .

Big monitor but less than a year later, unusable
I bought this monitor in June 2016 and within a month or so started having problems. Screen stars flickering/shaking and can sometimes see the refresh taking place.
I figured it was a driver problem and updated the drivers for my Geoforce GTX980 video card. Also changed monitor driver to Win8, then win7, then win10.
Problem has just gotten worse. I mostly work in text either writing academic papers or program code. I like having all that real estate to keep different windows open. Unfortunately, it has gotten so bad that I can't even see what I am doing half the time.
Thought there might be electrical interference but none I can find. My secodnary 24 inch monitor has zero issues which I would not expect if there was an environmental impact to the system. Tried tightening connections and using the supplied software to change various settings to no avail.
The manual for this thing is not even accurate. I think they took a manual for a different monitor and just changed a few references. The description of the monitor is incorrect (eg.. there are no buttons other than a power button. No OSD buttons to push). Other drivers and their Smartcontrol software, there is nothing else on the site to help.
There is an option to call support but it is only good 9-5 and it seems always closed by the time I can call. I sent an email but hold little hope for a response.
So, the manual is useless, the monitor is useless, and their online support is useless.
I would stay away from this monitor. Most likely this one will be used for target practice at the range in a few weeks.

Excellent monitor. 43 inches of 4k delight. Comparison shopped several popular brands and models prior to making my purchase. Could not have made a better choice for my applications.
