$400, plus $17 for shipping. Or free pickup if you live close to a micro center store. No coupon needed.

This is the lowest Price on this monitor that I have seen yet (new). Still, this sale doesn't quite edge out some "Black November" sales on 4k TV's, but this may be of interest to some, especially those who want a true RGB IPS panel (LG's MU6300/MU6200 4k TV model is RGBW, and not nearly as crisp). There have been some spotty reviews on image retention, but also other reviews that adamantly contest any inclination to image retention (See amazon & microcenter reviews):

Also, in the interest of reference and avoiding regurgitating the same discussions, here is an older SD thread on the monitor when it was on sale for $500:

so, if i have a 32" 4k (from the other acer thread on newegg) and using windows scaling at about 135dpi
does that mean if i went to a larger 43" monitor like this, that perhaps my need to introduce windows scaling would be reduced or potentially eliminated?

just trying to understand the math in my head.

..don't think i can even fit this sized monitor on my desk and the stupid design of the base pretty much ensures that.

You would have to go really big to eliminate windows scaling, prob 60" or so.

I don't need any windows scaling on my 40" 4k monitor. 40"-43" are perfect size for 4k imo

how far back do you sit? I cant imagine being 3 or 4 ft away? I would constantly be moving my head all around to see the corners.

My eyes are about 2.7 feet away from the screen. I do notice that I have to move my head a bit from time to time but much less compared to using dual screen. Mine is curved and it helps a lot I guess.

Do you set your default font preferences higher and all? I can imagine some of the windows buttons are still pretty small.

on a 32" you definitely need to, but i wonder if that is not necessary when you have a 43"

Nope. All 100% default settings. 4k 40" is almost like putting 4 21" 1080p monitors together. It is not that small, I can see every text, buttons very comfortably without any scaling.

I use 24" 1080ps, and the text is on the small end for my eyesight, so I think I'd have to go 50 or more.

Using DPI / PPI calculator:

1080p 24" - Display size: 20.92" × 11.77" = 246.12in² (53.13cm × 29.89cm = 1587.9cm²) at 91.79 PPI, 0.2767mm dot pitch, 8425 PPI²

4K 43" - Display size: 37.48" × 21.08" = 790.08in² (95.19cm × 53.55cm = 5097.26cm²) at 102.46 PPI , 0.2479mm dot pitch, 10498 PPI²

91.79 PPI vs 102.46 PPI, that's pretty close. Text will be a tiny bit smaller on the 4k 43" than your 1080 24" monitor at 100% scaling.

can you please do the same math assuming a 24" 1920x1200 monitor?

Just read the negative reviews on the link above. This panel likely shares that of the Philips which are notably the worst in the industry. There is severer ghosting which means this is more of a TV than a monitor. It would be useless for desktop application.

Display size: 20.35" × 12.72" = 258.88in² (51.69cm × 32.31cm = 1670.17cm²) at 94.34 PPI, 0.2692mm dot pitch, 8900 PPI² Wave
