Best 40"-43" 4k TV with 4:4:4 to use as a monitor (under $500)

929 151 April 24, 2017 at 12:05 PM
I can spend up to 500 dollars for a monitor for work. I want a 4k from 39" to 43" . 50 is too big...would consider smaller than 39 if it's an awesome monitor. I have a 2k monitor at home that is not bad, but I'm looking for a bit more screen real estate.

I've almost had it in my grasp but have had orders get cancelled or damaged, so I'm needing to get it ASAP before budget rolls over.

Essentials:
4:4:4 @60hz (over hdmi2.0 or displayport)
Good image quality
not rgbw
Accurate colors (as accurate as possible at this price point).
wide color gamut (still researching this...some claim to have it and some don't).

Cool stuff:
10 bit HDR (still researching this. It might not be relevant because only HDR content is displayed in this way, I think, so it probably doesn't really effect day to day office use, but I would like to hear if that's not the case)

I don't really care about gaming on it since it's for work. Would love some help on this. Thanks! worship

Nobody? Trying to hit up reddit for advice/deals on this now. Still sore after having my bj's samsung ku7500 order canceled. Seemed like the perfect deal at an incredible price.

I'm in the same boat. Have you found anything?

I'm interested in something like this, too. I have been focused on Dell but that can be something of a pain because your "good deal" comes from getting a gift card. Not sure how your company would treat that.

One of the things that I am struggling with in finding a TV is determining the specs. For example, I was just on LG's website and the tech specs page doesn't seem to tell you whether the TV has Chroma 4:4:4 (and what Hz it can run at). Also, the user manual is for a variety of models so that doesn't answer the question (clearly) either. I'd like to figure out where people are getting the information from or if I am overlooking something. I suppose I could email these companies.

There was a deal thread a while ago where someone said that the LG 6100 series (I see that there is a 43 inch size available, I believe the full model number is 43UH6100) and the Samsung 6300 series (I see there is a 40" and a 43" size for this, I believe the full model numbers are UN40MU6300FXZA and UN43MU6300FXZA, sometimes the FXZA at the end of the model number is not included) are good to use as monitors. I'd like to verify that those have RGB and chroma 4:4:4, as I heard those are good features to have when using a TV as a monitor.

Did you ever figure out anything more about the 10 bit HDR? I hadn't heard about that before but I am very curious.

Did you end up buying something already? If so, what?
