If I hook a Chromecast up to this thing, is there an easy way to pipe the audio out to a soundbar?
Yep, it has a 3.5mm output. I have this monitor in my office, and my audio from my PC carries to the monitor over DP, and then I feed it out to speakers from the monitor's 3.5mm output. I have a Varidesk, so one less cable going back to my desktop is nice.

Looked and looked again, and this has no freesync, which would be a dealbreaker for gaming. It has hdcp 2.2, so should be no problem to connect PS4 Pro or Xbox One X and run 4k.

The monitor is good, not very bright so do not put near an open window that gets direct sunlight.
I also looked everywhere, and it appears to not really have Freesync at all. Looking at the LG product page there is nothing there https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg...ed-monitor. It appears that it originally was advertised as supporting freesync, but it didn't come to fruition (its not anywhere in the menus/settings).

According to this Kotaku article, it might support 56-61Hz...but that isn't too helpful. https://www.kotaku.com.au/2018/01...ally-a-tv/

Hope that helps some make their decision.

OH I have the monitor, it definitely does not mention Freesync anywhere in the menus. Unlike my UltraWide LG that supports Freesync. Too lazy to haul my PC to the office, but fairly positive LG's website is correct and there is no Freesync in this model.

Some forums suggest this model had Freesync support initially planned, but it was removed by the time of the release.

I was just very surprised when I saw Freesync in description, and started looking at specs/checked the monitor menu - that'd be a pleasant surprise OMG

OP you might want to update description

A far better option for a 43" monitor. Half the cost. Superior picture, hdr capable, same 60hz, can do chroma 4:4:4, speakers, tuner, Vesa.

Slightly more input lag.

Does that do 4 inputs at the same time though? I mean there are probably better monitors for less than this one, but I feel the main benefit to this is being able to hookup multiple devices and view them all on the same screen.

I'd say for that use case you're correct. I mainly was pointing out for those that do not have a use case specific to the abilities of this monitor IE 4 simultaneous inputs, the TV is a far better display device.

I got a TCL 43" 4k from Costco for $220, with 4 yr warranty. There have been a number of deals on that TV over the past few months. If you are using this for just one PC (ie not utilizing the multi-input display), I think the TCL is a much better deal, especially with the posts above stating this doesn't have FreeSync.

You know how some people say 28in is too big for HD? Well is 43 inch too big for 4K?

40"+ feel just right for 4k without scaling

I got this monitor last BF and also love it. I use an old software called placemint to move windows around the four quadrants (I can instantly swap one browser window for another to switch tasks). This allows me to work using the bottom half of the screen mostly while using the top half to just glance up when I need to reference something, which really reduces any potential neck strain. Love the IPS and the size that truly feels like four monitors in one.

This is a great productivity monitor. I've been using it for more than a year. Perfect resolution for text at 100%, no scaling. My only complaint would be some small 'shadow distortion' around the screen's perimeter edges. Money well spent.

The 43 tcl 5 series is almost half the price and better across the board.

The only area this monitor is better is input lag.

I can't see any reason to spend $500 for a worse overall picture for all categories that matter when you can spend $280
I tried a 43" TCL 4 series TV as a monitor and the viewing angles were not setup to be only 2-3 feet from the TV. Maybe the 5 series is better, but I doubt it since it's also not made for that kind of viewing distance.

FWIW, I bought a 43-inch Element 4K@60Hz TV about three years ago for $198. I took it to work because the company was only issuing two 22-inch Dells to folks. My Dell laptop worked great at 4K at 60 Hz. This 'noname' brand TV also has 178 degree viewing angles. Aldo, it does not have the chroma sampling issue. Texts are crisp. Why would I want to pay more for a expensive 4K 'monitor'?

Can anyone that owns this monitor comment on how (and how well) the built in KVM works? I plan to use this for multiple PC's and would like to eliminate the need for an external KVM switch. For example if displaying two inputs side by side how do you get the mouse and keyboard to switch between them?
