Can someone check to see their power supply adapter is dual voltage 110-240? Or can be substituted with one. Can someone post a pic of the power adapter?

Real question, can I drive this with i5-2400 and 1050ti for web browsing and movie watching then drop to 1080 for Skyrim and CivVI or is it to much real estate.

web browsing movie watching sure, in 1080 i would just do windowed mode in the middle of your screen, 42" is too big for a game without craning your neck or moving back, gonna look pixelated too sitting that close.

That is also if you have the GPU to push 144Hz at 4K. Or even have the right DisplayPort cables to support that bandwidth. HDMI 2.0 can't even support 4K at 144Hz. You will have to use a DisplayPort 1.3 or later 1.4.
yeah, only like 5 year old games probably. struggling to push above 80 in modern games at 4k on a 1080ti

Bought it two weeks ago for the same price with less warranty. Returned it yesterday. The fuzzy edges and unusable size in most desktop environments made it a funny but impractical toy. Neck strain from constantly looking up/down was too much. Replaced with three 24" IPS FullHD panels for less $$$.
yeah, the 43 inch size makes it too unwieldy for desktop and as you say too much head turning unless you sit a little further.

That;s the problem with all these big monitors once you are above 36 inch... you have to turn your head unless sitting further. then you would have trouble seeing small stuffs at native resolution....

8K desktop monitor should ideally be no more than 34-36 inch... but any 8K monitors less than 30 inch is just a waste of pixel density....

I've had this monitor for about 6 months now and it's been fantastic. Yes, it's a little bit big for sitting close, but it's not as bad as I thought.

I sit about two feet away, and the size is no problem horizontally; not much more than a typical 35" ultrawide, or also, similar to a typical dual-monitor setup.

The only time the size gets to be an issue is when trying to read text at the top of the screen, which requires looking up a little, not the most comfortable movement. My solution was to resize windows that I'm using, such as my web browser, to be just a little bit smaller vertically, instead of just maximizing them like I'd normally do.

What this monitor excels for is in consuming video content. If you watch a lot of streaming video on your computer, or you're trying to have a TV which can double as a computer monitor, like in a small apartment, this is the perfect screen for you. Sitting two feet away, video content basically fills your entire field of view for an immersive experience.

It also has pretty good brightness and color rendition, and the contrast isn't bad. I'd say it's suitable for things like photo/video editing if you're not a serious professional, and you're working on stuff mainly for web use (social media, etc). The size is pretty nice--since it's a 4k monitor that's this big, you can really see a lot more detail than a typical 27" panel.

For gaming, obviously it's only 60hz, and the response times are just OK. I'd say it's a good monitor for single player or casual multiplayer gaming, but I definitely wouldn't go with this screen if you do a lot of fast-paced competitive online gaming. If that's your bag, get something smaller with a high refresh rate.

Edit: It also, by the way, has excellent speakers compared to most computer monitors. I got rid of my speakers and just use the ones on the monitor now, for occasional casual use (for serious music listening or watching movies/TV I use my headphones).

Yup I have a 43" I use as PC monitor with Windows 10 and unless you have better than 20/20 vision no way you'll be able to read the text at the native 100%. I have my text scaling set to 200% and that works fine from around 3 to 4 feet away. I just noticed latest version of Windows 10 actually recommends 300% scaling LOL. Before it used to only suggest like 150% scaling guess they realized that's too small for most normal vision people.

I am currently using a 32in 4K monitor viewing from 1.5 ft away and it's perfect with native resolution. i think 34 inch or at most 36 in would fill up my peripheral vision but not making me turning head but over 40 inch is just too much for desktop use.

You must got a big desk if you can put it on the desk and still sit 3-4ft away and still put keyboard and mouse on same desk.
