It says it's for multitasking and that's what I'm looking for. Big monitor for home office that matches the the resolution proportion of my at work monitor. Home run.

43MU79 is a different version of the LG 43UD79 monitor. Both of these use their "Flicker-free technology", which is actually not flicker-free... it's still PWM but at a higher frequency.

Anyone know if the 43MU79 is using the same RGBW pixel structure as the 43UJ6300? If it is not using RGBW, then that would make it pretty tempting to replace my existing Seiki from ~2 years ago.

It appears the Costco one is the older 43UD79-B model. I can't find any info on the actual differences between them.

Both have HDR apparently, why is the monitor more expensive?

Newegg is selling the business model. 3-year warranty. Costco is selling the consumer model. 1-year warranty. Otherwise exact same monitor in every way. They even share the same manual.

8ms response time - would that be noticeable for someone who plays games 1-5x a year?

how do you only play games 1-5x a year? That just blows my mind.

And no, 8ms wont matter unless those 1-5x a year are competition level FPS or fighting games for $$$$ (well, input lag matters more than screen response rate but they tend to go somewhat hand-in-hand).

Worth getting this over a 3440x1440 ultrawide?
From a work perspective, get if you feel you never have enough vertical real estate and are willing to sacrifice neck strain and a bit of immersion for it. The thing about this model vs most 4K models is it's so big it's designed to work comfortably at the native 4K resolution without UI scaling. Its PPI is actually lower than the 34" ultra-wides. 102PPI to 110PPI, respectively. But an uncurved 34", while an absolute Godsend for graphical work that gets raped by curves, is already quite wide to look at if you need to see the absolute edges. This 43" is over 5" wider still, and much taller, too. There will be a lot of head movement to navigate the perimeter of the screen. Plus, I think at 102PPI the pixels are a bit larger than they need to be. IMO the sweet spot (for effectively non ultra-dense displays where it's immersive but you can still see and work on every individual pixel) is around 120-125PPI.

If someone wants flicker-free, the Sony 43X720E for $500 might be a better choice with that 20% off seller specific coupon on eBay.
