Is this the 2018 model? Or the newest one?

I bought the 43" version, a 43S517, from Best Buy a while back for use as a computer monitor, but I ended up returning it. This model has a thin diagonal pattern that runs from the top left down to the bottom right all over the screen. I believe the pattern's incorporated into the screen coating to keep down reflections.

The pattern's not noticeable when viewing the set at normal TV distances, or say three feet or more; so if you want to use the 43" version just as a TV it probably will work out okay. But when using this version as a computer monitor, the pattern can become apparent at times. Text can look strange, even dirty perhaps, with little islands of diagonal lines around it. Also, the pattern can get really noticeable during bright parts of movies, say during explosions.

I have a 43" TCL S405 that I've been using as a monitor, and it doesn't show this pattern at all.

This pattern might be something to look out for if you plan on using the 43" version as a monitor.
