Affordable 43" 4K monitor

Pros: - Affordable price.
- Looks nice with thin bezels.
- Reasonable response time for casual gaming and productivity. I played some Starcraft II in diamond league with no problems.
- Height of monitor is exactly the same as the width of a 23.8" monitor, so you can have a sweet 43" + vertical 24" monitor setup. I paired it with two Dell P2415Q in vertical orientation.
- RGB subpixel array means crisp text rendering, in contrast to many TVs that use nonstandard pixel arrays.
- Calibrated sRGB IPS panel.

Cons: - Severe backlight bleeding on top edge, about 1/3 of the way from the right.
- Edges of screen cannot be seen clearly, making it hard to click on scrollbars etc. This appears to be because the backlight is recessed quite a bit and does not illuminate the edges of the screen unless you look at them head-on.
- Some slight vertical banding due to backlight unevenness in addition to the backlight bleeding.
- Some slight horizontal banding when displaying large amounts of white text against a dark background.
- Navigating the menus using the button/joystick thing on the bottom of the monitor is mildly confusing (do you pull the joystick towards you to go down, or push it away from you? I can never remember).

Overall Review: Overall a cheap and reasonable monitor. For computer use, it is superior to most cheap 4K TVs at the same price point due to better text rendering and response time. This is a good monitor for most productivity use.

For consuming video, or casual gaming, the monitor works well as slight banding issues and backlight bleeding cannot be easily noticed. However, I do not recommend the monitor for programming in terminals with a dark background, or for colour-critical applications such as photo editing. Moreover, the response time is higher than gaming monitors, so I do not recommend it for serious gaming.

Moreover, be sure to sit at least 1.5 m away from the monitor or else the edges will be invisible, making it hard to click on scroll bars.

Fantastic Monitor!

Pros: 6 total inputs, USBC, DP and 4 HDMI, two are 30Hz, and 2 are 60Hz. Allows every connection someone could want.
Fantastic Picture, and with 10 bit color, allows Photo Editing and Video with great color rendition! No Moire patterns. Joystick control for menus is brilliant!

Cons: The picture can be split into 2 or 4 inputs, but the other configurations that are shown on the website are NOT controlled by the minor, but are just windows modes that require Windows OS, and are really no different than what Windows can do natively. I thought (maybe mistakenly) that the 3 window configurations, etc were built into the monitor, they are NOT.
When using PIP, if the other inputs are also high res, the PIP is not great resolution, so its best to set the screen res down a bit if using them in split screen mode.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this monitor for the IPS (Wide Angle View) and the 10 bit cooler, as well as the split screen.

Great monitor but DO NOT use included Displayport cable or you will experience blackouts

Pros: Great monitor, amazing picture

Cons: I experienced the well-documented blackout every 60 seconds that many others are reporting. After much research I found that the included Displayport cable is to blame. Here's what happened.
1. ordered monitor from Newegg, hooked up with included DP cable
2. After 3 days exactly, monitor started blacking out for 4 seconds in 60 second intervals.
3. RMA'd monitor to Newegg and got replacement
4. Used included DP cable and after 3 days got blackouts again. Hooked up with HDMI cable and got no blackouts...hmmm
5. Ordered 2 meter Displayport cable for $15 that supports DP1.4 8K 60Hz, Vesa Certified.
6. Hooked up new DP cable and monitor works great for 2 weeks now.

Overall Review: LG cheaped out on the Displayport cable. If you get issues, just buy the best quality DP cable you can find and make sure it is Vesa Certified. They're only $15. And keep it 2 meters or less if you can.

Only 4 stars because the cable included is not sufficient. I think they burn out after about 30 hours of use. I went through 2 of them on 2 different monitors.

Perfect Revit workstation monitor ... if you have 32-36" deep desk!

Pros: LG's Onscreen Control in Windows allows seamless customizing of screen partitioning on the fly. Works significantly better than static size dual or other multi-monitor setup. Amazingly simple and intuitive utility that starts automatically once installed and retains configuration from previous session.
4K resolution is perfect at 43" as a production monitor. Almost same pitch as my 2K 27" Dell Precision monitors.
Needs only (1) HDMI cable to get multi-partition windows on screen and sound, much less cable clutter than a multi-monitor setup.
Half the price of a good dual monitor setup.
10W speakers sound is very respectable.

Cons: Need 32-36" deep desk ... if you are transitioning from the old days of CRT with deep desk, this is perfect ... if not, it may be a bit large for standard 24" deep tables.
Color is decent but not saturated punchy, works best as a production monitor, not for entertainment.

Overall Review: I cannot see myself going back to Dual 27" monitors for working in Revit after using this monitor... Its a total game changer!
43MU79-B is the exact same monitor as the 43UD79-B except with 3yr warranty.

Bee's Knee's for an IT admin who's main monitor is the IPS 144hz

Pros: It looks of that beautiful IPS "flattish" colors combined with 4k. The real estate ensures all text is native during RDP etc. What more do you want?

Cons: Oh yea, more hertz. Where is the 144hertz curved version?

Overall Review: Back to work I guess. Just like this monitor to say it's definitely worth it the end as long as the price is right. Also I love strategy games on this monitor like Warslemmer. It's just like a theatery experience.

Worked for 1 month or so.

Pros: Size, price

Cons: Newegg won't accept for return. LG said they would replace, then didn't. Said they would send a technician to repair, and didn't. I wish I would've looked intro LG service before I purchased. Monitor lost display after short time.

Overall Review: Run from this or any other LG display. Monitors fail prematurely, and they will drag their feet repairing or replacing.

everyone should just move to big screen

Pros: big screen, spoiled me, it's now difficult to like smaller monitors

Cons: a bit heavy to me, not the best image quality but good enough i guess. bezel is pretty small for it's size but would like it even smaller. a bit of motion blur i see trailing my mouse.

Overall Review: wish it had higher refresh rates or adaptive sync. hope they continue to work on developing bigger displays, make it more thin, lighter, prettier, better quality. i would totally invest in more when they do.
