why don't they make a 32" IPS 4K monitor for around this price, or $100 cheaper? That's the sweet spot, but not much activity in that area yet..

this is a great monitor, it's about the right size for being able to view stuff without zooming

Looks like it'll walk away if you're not careful.

These stands were made for walking and that's just what they'll do. One of these days these stands are gonna walk all over you.

I have both right in front me both were bought at $400, no complaint, I enjoyed native 4K resolution without scaling and all IPS so no view angle/color shifting. I tried 32" but returned for non-IPS and still needs scaling 125% on 4K, felt real estate is limited for similar price.

Both can do picture in picture, while this handles up to 2 PIP LG can do up to 3, vertical half/half or four.
This has burn in visible under grey background but no permanent.
This is semi-glassy screen and LG is matte.
Color is right and good brightness on both.
I tested http://i.rtings.com/images/test-m...ma-444.png for chrome both read clear on the last two line.
Both stands can tilt forward backward with no height adjusting, both are at the same height as I lined them up next to each other for dual screen setup under a Nvida 980Ti.

I say for $100-200 difference this is a good alternative to LG which is usually priced more than $550.

One drawback of 43" monitor is the pixel density is the same as 1080p on 21" in old days. If you've used to 2K, 3K or 4K on 27" 32" you will notice the 43" monitor font looks a bit fuzzy, but in a few days it's as good as ever. I don't have a 27" or 32" next to it so that might have helped for no comparison. Humans eyes are amazing organ.

I think monoprice has one. Was $380 a week or two ago. 4k 60Hz. It says IPS but apparently IPS response is limited to 5ms and monoprice has it st like 2-4.

Thanks for the reply. I got the LG for $400 on BF, just want to see if this is any better since they're the same price. The LG screen has the very side edges cut off at an angle. But I do like matte screen better.

How's the flicker? I've read both have it pretty bad with using PWM. Which is what is holding me back. It seems like all the 4k's in this range have it Dell, Acer, LG, Pioneer.

The LG I received turned out already upgraded to the latest firmware when I made attempt, supposedly increased from 120mhz to 480mhz (or whatever the unit is) and removed the flicker problem.

Personally I haven't experienced any of those widely report flicker problem on either of the monitor. I have a hunch the earlier reported problems may be related to the fact many used HDMI cable and lower grade GPU card. I only used DP so I wouldn't be able to attest all scenarios. Some setting tweaks are needed, e.g. turn off the supersharpness wherever you see it.

A side note, the 10W speaker on the LG is really great, comparable to any standalone small speakers. Acer's speaker is powerful too but as crappy as any build in speaker found on monitors.

In my opinion, this 43" IPS at $400 is a no-brainer comparing to any 4K IPS 32" you can find at this price range. The increased real estate will set you mind free (unless you're an extreme type gamer), only meaningful debate of choice to those high end 32" IPS which is usually around twice as much.

I have this as well (bought it for $450 at Microcenter during the summer). It's been fantastic. I still use 125% zoom though. The only thing I don't like about it is the white back panel. My other monitors are black so it clashes a little. Some complain it's too big and they need to move her head around to navigate but I don't really notice this as being a problem. At this price, I'd grab it

Headphone peg. You can screw it in or leave it out.
