I'm honestly shocked LG is using a VA panel when they manufacture their own IPS panels (and maybe now VA panels?).

Anyways, IPS has better color accuracy, more vibrant colors, but suffers from grayish blacks, backlight bleed, etc.

VA panels have worse color, but inky blacks typically, also worse response time for gaming supposedly.

Personally, I'm using a AMVA panel which is like a VA and IPS hybrid of sorts, fixes the color issues while providing awesome contrast and good vibrant colors.

I am all for the AMVA panels as they are the closest to OLED I have seen yet.

Thanks. Looking for 4k IPS but currently no good deal found. No sure if I should pull the trigger for this one or not.

No problem. What are you looking to do with the monitor? Work, gaming, basic usage?

Hey wezly, so I've been looking at this and the 43" one as well that lg makes. The 43" is ips and at 650 seems like a great value but I really want multi monitor and 43 is just so big. The new 32 LG has out is ips but comes in at 1,000 per monitor while their 27" ips can be had for $400 on sale at Best Buy.

I want to play games primarily. I'll also be doing some audio editing. I don't do any photo or video editing. Monitors would be connected to a multi boot hackintosh. I'm totally prepared to upgrade to a 1080ti to push these monitors but even then I know I won't be able to game with three monitors at 4k resolution.

The ultra wides are appealing but I know I won't be satisfied with just one and the pricing on the large format ones make multi setups too expensive.

My question is- how would these be for gaming in the opinion of the pros and if I'm not going to be able to game in 4k should I even make the jump right now? Or should I stick with my 3 27" 1080p monitors until better options arrive?

Happy to help. So I actually have a GTX 1080 Ti and I have a 4k 40 inch monitor and a 32 inch WQHD monitor. Funny enough, I actually had the 4K and chose to "downgrade" my monitor to a 32 WQHD monitor.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

I definitely think that 4K isn't worth it for the frames it pushes and that is why I went back to 1440p. I would recommend 3 WQHD monitors over 3 4K monitors if you are going to be gaming just for sustainability, unless you only play League of Legends or Overwatch which are not really demanding.

Otherwise, I would recommend a large format 4K monitor over any 3 monitor set up as its just gonna look better and 40 or 43 inches really isn't that big.

In regards to ultrawides, I had one of the original LG 34 inchers and I returned it because the screen was so matte that it made the picture ugly and for me, unbearable. I believe the only glossy ultrawide is an HP Envy 34 which I also had and returned because VA is not good for ultrawide frames due to the color shift and fade.

If you go ultrawide, I would go Dell 34 or LG 34.

However, I would recommend the monitor I use as it is perfect, it is glossy, but treated with an anti-haze finish so colors pop, but your reflection isn't a problem. I have gone through about 20 monitors in the past 5 years and this is the best monitor I have ever used hands down. Also, it comes factory calibrated from the factory which you only see in super expensive monitors.

However, I would not recommend using the monitor I have for multi monitor do so the large bezels.

Web browsing, video, coding using my 2017 macbook pro. Not a big fan of gaming. I am also considering LG 27UDXX, Dell U2718Q and P2715Q, but at this moment no best deal available...

I have the LG 43UD79-B. It's fantastic and highly recommend it (I was coming from a 30 inch apple cinema display) for gaming and work. The PBP and PIP modes are really nice and super flexible. One thing to note is that it has a minimum viewing distance of about 2-3 feet which is a bit far for a computer monitor, under than distance the edges star to blur into black for about 4-9 pixels.
