*Looks like Newegg had a good one-day promotion over the weekend that has some threads still bouncing around. However, the current price (using coupon code: EMCTATE34) is $472. For those with deal alerts for LG Electronics 42.5" Screen LED-lit Monitor ( 43UD79-B ), this is apparently the same monitor but with 3-years warranty instead of 1 :dunno:?*

ive come to the conclusion that i should be buying a tv instead.

seriously though, this comes really close to overlapping with a tv, and you can get a pretty nice VA panel for $450, so think carefully about what you want. i haven't made a purchase but i'm no longer considering the 40 and 43 inch monitors in lieu of a 55 inch tv.

Man, I bought an Avera 40" 4k TV for $150 that I'm using as a monitor. Only downside is the screen doesn't automatically turn off when PC sleeps or turns off, but for the price I can't complain.

I bit on this deal. The main reason I chose this, over a TV Monitor for my home office, are the multiple input/multitasking capabilities:

"DESIGNED FOR MULTITASKING
The large 42.5" 4K screen allows users to have multiple windows and applications open at the same time and provides segmentation of the screen into up to 4 distinct sections, giving the appearance and functionality of 4 independent screens. You can watch movies, play games or multi-task on the large screen without compromising the clarity and readability of each window."

U r not serious right? TV and monitor are totally different for example 32 inch Samsung lg or whatever decent company full hd or 4k TV wont be same as monitor you cant use it

Monitor is more expensive for a reason

so, this feature is inherent to 4k resolution, so this 'feature' just describes something that you can do with a 4k resolution panel. it allows you to comfortably view four windows at a time. i'm surprised that you bought because of this -- this is one of the most basic benefits of using a 4k monitor and people have been mentioning this since they first came out.
I don't know what to tell you.The PIP fictionally with Mouse/Display sharing software options seemed to be much more easy/intuitive with this model's UI over TV options (heck, there is a button for it directly on the remote). Also, Im sure we can go deep down the "panel usage/spec's" rabbit hole, but I have faith that LG used the panel best suited for what this product was going to be marketed as. After researching this for about a month, I feel its a great <$500 dedicated (giant) monitor option.

If you like to use a TV as a monitor, no one is going to stop you and it's your opinion. I have this monitor on a deal at 400 a while back and coming from a similar size TV, I won't be going back to using TV. Unless you have a GPU that can handle 4k decently well, it won't really matter getting a 4k tv or monitor. The input lag in a TV is not ideal in the same price range, and it's why most people will stick with monitor even though the cost is higher.

I keep thinking about how huge these things must be to sit up close to when working. I want to see a photo of someone doing coding on a monitor like this. Does it look ridiculous ?

I can't speak to it's usability for coding. But for anyone performing CAD based operations, this is a godsend. I used to run (4) 1920x1200 monitors, then tried (2) 34" ultra wides for a year, jumped on this a while back and have been in heaven. I think monitor selection is truly subjective to a individuals personal workflow style.

This guy can give you an idea of how big it is on a normal desk size. I personally recommend to have it at least 1 arm length or 3+ft from where you sit.

I didn't do it on this monitor, but on an LG 4k TV, and it was very nice.. Side by side code windows with lots of room, or even moreso the same side by side, with the app/browser running beside both at times. Made my life much easier. I've since reverted to a smaller 3 monitor system again, 1 4k, 1 2k and a standard monitor, due to the mobility/chair/workstation issue I'm in, but there are days I miss it greatly.

It's not bad, I use one along with two cheapie 24" inch LG monitors flanking it on the left and right in vertical position.

Overkill? Maybe. But I love the real estate for the productivity in terms of comfort.

You can have your IDE, terminal, device emulators, browsers, etc., open and in view without having to navigate full screen apps, etc.

I have the monitor mounted on a cheap Monoprice arm as far back on the desk as possible.
