You can't get it at that price until 11/16/18, this sale is advertised on Holiday Savings booklet Costco send to their members, if you can't wait until 11/16/18, you can buy it now to use it, then buy it again when it's on sale and return the new one with your old receipt to get the difference.

One of the reason why people buy from Costco is their great return policy, if the item breaks within the manufacturer warranty, you don't need to pay shipping to send it back to the manufacturer, Costco will give you a full refund and send the item back to the manufacturer for you. That's why even if it's few bucks cheaper elsewhere, it's worth paying that extra bucks for the peace of mind that Costco offers. Even Amazon can't match Costco's return policy, which explains why Costco is the only retail store that can sustain Amazon's disruption.

Thinking about an use case for this. 34" is already too big on the office table.

I had this and returned it. It's just too big to use at a desk when you're sitting 2 feet away. If it were curved, that might have been a different story, and probably a different price too.

Definitely need a curved display at this size. Even a flat 32" 4K didn't work for me for that reason. The 34" 21:9 curved displays are perfect but a bit too small vertically, so now I use a 48" curved 4K TV (Samsung JS9000 series) as my primary monitor. The curve makes a HUGE difference if you use it as a computer monitor, not so much if you primarily use it as a TV.

Anyone know how ordering from costco.com goes. I don't have a membership and was wondering if I used a friends, could I use my payment info and ship to me? Really don't want to have to get a membership for this deal only as I don't really have a need for it otherwise.

I have 2040 vision, I need 43" minimum @ 4k and 100% scaling, if you increase scaling on 4k, you lose screen real estate and that's very bad for productivity. This screen is for productivity and trading stocks without multi-monitor setup. I use mine for gaming also.

I use a Samsung 43" 4K TV in the Chroma 4:4:4 mode when I work from home. I put a bookshelf on the other side of my desk to get the screen further away from my face. It took a while to get used to, but now I prefer it over two 24" monitors. I have a lot more flexibility as to how I set up my windows based on my tasks. It is the best option for comparing two wide spreadsheets at once.

So is it better to get a 43" 4K TV and pay less?

I bought this to replace 2 Dell 24" 1920x1200 monitors, mainly for more screen real estate. I sit around 2' away using it at native resolution. Dot pitch is a little smaller. I got used to the extra vertical space fairly quickly.

I use Displayport and the monitor would occasionally randomly disconnect, sometimes multiple times in a day. Swapped the cable that came with the monitor for a better one and same thing occurred. Updated the firmware and that seems to have corrected the problem.

How much was the 48" curved tv?

I bought it a couple of years ago for $800. Similar TVs should be cheaper now. Make sure you read some reviews before buying one. RTings.com is a good site that covers a lot of areas that are important if you intend to use the TV as a monitor.

Just recently bought this for around 450, great monitor for multitasking and video, gaming wise is ok for computer, but good for console. All I have to say is, this thing is HUGE and HEAVY if you're going to use it as a monitor about 2-3 ft in front of you. I have this wall mounted and it's a much better way of use imo. Just be aware if you're going to wall mount it, because you may need to do a little modification and recommend another person to help you out. It's a PITA mounting this if you're doing it by yourself. Comes with 1 DP-DP and 1 HDMI-HDMI cables too. Also, beware on what port you're using on this monitor as there are 2 port with 60hz and the other are only 30hz don't remember actual full detail but it's something to keep in mind when you plug in your cables.

This will be depends on how picky you are. 43" 4K TV works well if you don't care much for input lag and it's what plague most of TV being use as monitor. I personally like the monitor much better than my TV "monitor" since I can't stand input lag.

Yeah you can do exactly that. I use my brother's account. As long as you spend money, they don't care.
