Amazon lightning deal is live on 43" Dell for those of you with prime - $649.99

Costco LG 43" at $550 is probably a better deal for those with a Costco membership and that monitor is available regularly for $650 but I know some folks prefer Dell monitors. I tried searching for this deal and could not find it but mods, please feel free to delete if I am double posting.

FYI: 3840x2160 ... not 21609 Stick Out Tongue The Amazon specs have an extra character at the end Stick Out Tongue 21609 pixels in one direction would be very impressive on something this small Big Grin

I'd say just buy a 4k tv and use that as your monitor. I've been doing that for about a year now.

Works great as long as you verify 4:4:4 chroma support of you will be very disappointed

Also consider PWM frequency if you are sensitive to flicker. TVs typically use a lower frequency such as 120hz which can cause headaches/eye strain for some folks. Though there are some, like many of the Sony TVs, that allow you to switch PWM on and off. Monitors usually use a method other than PWM or have a higher frequency (e.g., the 43" LG flickers at 480hz after a recent firmware update - it was 120hz when first launched and there were a lot of complaints on various forums).

Just my $.02 after trying to find the best 40"+ 4K monitor at a decent price.

Sure thing. I ordered one on Costco that should be delivered next week. There's a good thread on Hardforum about the LG. First half or so of the pages are mostly about the 120hz PWM but then they get into the firmware update that bumps it to 480hz and some other discussion points.

Not sure if I can post this link but I'll try: https://hardforum.com/threads/lg-...on.1929600

I bought the 40" Samsung MU6290 to use as a monitor last week. Messed around with it for ~8hrs one night before I had to leave town. Nice picture. 4k content on Netflix (Black Mirror) looked great. After a while I found my eyes throbbing a little and I had a very mild headache. I can't say for certain but I think this was because of the flicker on a screen that I was sitting very close to (compared to when watching TV) for a long time. Will A/B test them for a while when the LG gets here. Samsung will most likely end up in another room as a TV only.

One more thing, if you are going to hook a Mac up to the LG, it might behoove you to mount the monitor upside down. Weird, I know, but the panel has a BGR subpixel layout as opposed to the usual RGB in monitors. This can lead to text looking not so great. Windows can adjust to BGR (use Clear Type to tweak your display settings) but OS X cannot for some reason. Supposedly flipping the monitor upside down and rotating your display 180 degrees in display settings, while crude, fixes the issue.

Had one. Bad image retention and a weird gap around the edge of the screen (consistent with other reviews). Returned.

Been doing that for 1.5 years, works great. And I LOVE leaning back and still being able to read small font. Next step: 75' 4K TV-Monitor.

I just ordered this from Costco to use with my MacBook Pro 2016 via USB C. Do you have any more information on this text issue? I'm concerned I may need to cancel my order.

From what I've read it specifically effects font. It can impact other elements, but it's rare. Unfortunately I only had one night to play around with the 40" Samsung TV as a monitor before I had to leave town for the holidays (also BGR layout). But my MacBook Pro definitely did not look "right" compared to my Dell desktop. I thought it might have to do with limitations of the HDMI port on the MacBook and ordered a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. But after researching monitors more, seems it could be a problem with OS X and the BGR sub pixel layout.

Some suggest turning off font smoothing in your OS X system preferences saying that it can help with text sharpness but cause some blockiness.

If you want a big 4k monitor, you're going to have a hard time finding one that doesn't use BGR right now (in my experience). If I were you, having ordered from Costco, I would take delivery and test out the monitor. They have a great return policy.

It's one of those topics where I didn't find any kind of definitive guide - you have to lurk some message boards and gleam the common threads. With that qualifier, here are a couple of sources:
