    I tried to play game on 1440p on my 40" Philips and it looked good, I did it only to see how it looks, cause 980Ti is fine for 4K and I play only in 4K. Some games I played before on 27" 1440p started automatically at 1440p and I didn't even noticed it till checked the settings in menu. in-game you can see the difference obviously, but it is still playable and looks good.
    However I've read different opinions, it depends on a screen/size. Some screens are fine down-scaling like that, some not.
    With 40" you can always force it to 34" and save on gpu power, having perfect quality.

    I don't have the Philips but I had to do it on a couple of games using my Acer 4k2k and 1440p looked fine. Not sure I would go down to 1080p though.

    Not much to see in photos, apart from the fact that's nice to have such -relatively- slim bezels. :D
    As far as gaming goes, it's a MVA panel, so it's not super fast, but fast enough for me. Colors are AMAZING, MVA rocks. Color uniformity is pretty much perfect.
    Black uniformity suffers when displaying a full black screen (And I mean a complete black screen) but that rarely happens, so you wouldn't notice it in a normal scenario.
    Having this much workspace is unbelievable. With the PbP setting, I can have 2 "vertical" screens of 1920x2160 each. So when I do some WFH, I can have my main PC and my work laptop side by side, completely independent, and both enjoying the equivalent of 2x23" 1080p displays.
    The feet are somewhat low... I think the monitor is sitting a bit lower that I'd like it to be. I might end up buying a stand for it.
    From the left side you can pull a 2" plastic support bar that works just right as a handy headphone support. :D

    1080p looks terrible, awful. 1440p is kinda fine.
    BTW, I have a GTX690 (GTX970-ish in terms of raw power) and I can play more games in 2160p that I thought.
    Some current gen games, like pCARS, are perfectly playable @ 2160p 2xAA, pushing 50-60 fps. At ~110 PPI, honestly, I don't really need more than 2xAA or just FXAA.
    Other older games, like AC Unity, turn into a slideshow. So it's more like a hit and miss.

    Yes, many games do not need any form of aliasing @ 4k tbh.
