60hz of course...I don't think 144hz large 4k monitors exist at this point.

Even if it was 4k 144hz, how would you drive it? DP 1.2 limited at 4k 60hz no?

Displayport or HDMI 2.0

I have a 4K 40 inch I use with a GTX 1080 Ti

Apparently it is IPS and now OP has me wanting this.

Junk Monitor. You are better off buying a Binoculars and sitting in front of a 23" Monitor

HDMI 2.0 barely does 4K @60Hz.

4K (3840 × 2160) 144 Hz 24 bit/px RGB is still in development for Displayport, and most consumer devices are two gens behind anyway (rocking DP 1.2 and HDMI 1.4...).

Yeah I don't know where the 144hz thing came from. This is a 4k 60hz monitor and there is no 144hz 4k monitor I'm aware of because there isn't a GPU that could drive it.

I have a 40 inch 4k monitor and it's awesome. Also you can use Windows 10 scaling for your bad eyesight Stick Out Tongue

Did you read the reviews? If not, read them and you won't be wanting this anymore.

Oh bummer I was gonna wait until I got to work to research. I already have a 4k and 32 inch wqhd but I'm always down for an IPS monitor over a VA panel which both of mine are.

Here are some user reviews/discussion. [anandtech.com]

This monitor isn't perfect but it seems that all of the 43" 4k monitors currently on the market have some issues. If anyone knows of something near perfect please lmk. For instance, with the LG 43UD79, at a viewing distance of 2' the 10-15 pixel-wide vertical areas at the far left and right edges of the screen will be darkened to invisibility.

Asus thinks otherwise - https://www.asus.com/us/Monitors/...FT-PG27UQ/

Granted it's not a 40" though..

Doesn't seem to be available yet though when it does become available I'm sure it will be $1000+ and you would need a $2000+ PC to run a newer demanding game at that resolution and framerate

Interesting I read this monitor has the same panel as the Philips 43 incher and PCmonitors.info said it was noticeable.

I have a 40 inch Westinghouse. Uses the same panel as the Seiki Pro. Only issues are out of the box color (which was fixed with a $70 calibration tool) and the viewing angles are meh since it's VA. Other than that the blacks are way better than my IPS TV even with local dimming and there is no lag or ghosting in FPS games like OverWatch or Battlefield 1. Overall I like it but I prefer the punchier colors of IPS so I'm still looking.

I did a lot of research and got a Sony XBR-49X800D open box from buydig on ebay for under $500.

The only thing I don't like is the glossy panel - I always buy matte monitors. For the first few weeks it drove me nuts and I was looking at putting a giant matte screen protector on it but I got used to it and don't even notice it anymore.

There are a few downsides to using a TV as a monitor, I use linux and was able to find some code to handle power management, otherwise you might have to buy a special adapter or hit the on button when you come back to your computer if you have the screen turn off after a while. Also the monthly android updates are annoying, I suppose Sony will stop supporting this thing pretty soon though, I just hope they don't break something with an update. I could disconnect the ethernet cable but that's what how I send the power management commands, so I'd have to put in some firewall rules to prevent it getting to the outside world.
