Sorry.

I meant at 10-bit color depth.
It's really about the color space. I use a BenQ aRGB photography monitor that is true 10-bit, and supports all major wide gamut color spaces. I don't believe that "TVs" can do that. You can technically have "HDR", but it's a dubious option. Real HDR requires 1000 nits by the specs. Very few TVs can do that and work properly as a monitor. But I don't think any 4K TVs support aRGB out of the box.

amazon review is not that good

for the price, it seems like a good deal, but the response time gtg is 8 ms, is that bad? Also 60 hz refresh rate. will this handle an occasional gaming like GTA V ?

Unless you are playing CSGO competitively, you can game like normal. High refresh is nice to have, but it's not a must for "normal" playing. 8 ms gray to gray is fine for most people, most of the time. Again, maybe not if you are competing, but otherwise yes, and for all non twitch shooters it's a non-issue.

8ms gtg is pretty bad for gaming. Top tier gaming montiors are 1ms. I just got a dell gaming monitor with 4ms. 60hz is standard. That's what any TV is gonna be. But if you aren't gaming competitivly or playing FPS, shouldn't be a huge deal

You don't need 60Hz for productivity. I sometimes (like right now) use a 4K Samsung TV hooked up to one of my notebooks and don't have any issue with it even though it's 30Hz. Sure, 60Hz would be nicer but 30Hz still works fine.

You're paying a $200 premium for a Displayport connector compared to the equivalent TV.
Untrue. TVs are built for a different purpose and there are significant differences and deficiencies when you try to use them as monitors. Different subpixel layouts, less bandwidth (most media isn't 4:4:4 4k@60hz, and certainly not at higher refresh rates), generally higher input lag (though this has notably improved in the last few years with gaming modes).

People have been using the LG OLED TV's as monitors and they're generally great for that but they have their issues as well, inherent to OLED, and also due to the aforementioned reasons (can't drive at higher refresh rates or with HDR due to limited bandwidth), subpixel layout is bad for text, etc.

What do you define as "productivity"? For my definition of productivity 30Hz is just fine.

I have been using my 43" LG 43UD79-B for 3 years now without any issue. And no, you won't have enough desktop depth to set it far away and securely. I use a floor monitor stand and it has been serving me well.

That's the new trend. Save money by not including a stand and just add sticks in a pattern that prevents tipping over.

I recall in the 2000s. Sony monitors and TVs had nice solid metal and tempered glass pedestals.
I bought the version of this with a center stand that tilts. It's worth the extra money.

I compared it directly with a Samsung 43" 4k TV. The thing is, TV nowadays have a good anti-reflective coating. Even though the Samsung is semi-gloss, the glare was not bothering at all. Maybe if you have a light source right in front of it may affect it much more than the matte finish on the LG.

The input lag is barely noticeable in PC mode of the Samsung TV, I found no major difference in how the mouse movement felt. The text on the LG did look better even after fiddling with cleartext on the Samsung TV.

With DP and USB-C I was able to get 4k 60Hz with 4:4:4 10 bit, and along with convenience of the USB hub made it worth the extra money for me.
I didn't compare this LG model, I compared a Dell 43" 4k monitor to a high end Samsung 4k TV with anti-reflection coating and I had a normal ceiling light. The coating on the TV is just not as effective as on the Dell. And the Dell is almost certainly better for flicker. Besides the eye strain after using the TV for an 8 hr workday, and then for personal use after work, for me there were a lot of features that make the Dell more enjoyable. One of them being the Dell Display manager which allows you to display multiple inputs on the screen and I can switch inputs using my keyboard which is so nice to quickly switch back and forth between using my work computer (where everything I do get tracked and logged) and my personal computer. I also definitely found the mouse movements to not be as precise and smooth with the Samsung TV versus the Dell and this became annoying to me.

This thing is powerful, and has lots of connectivity options but some glaring weaknesses.

60 Hz refresh rate.
8ms response time.
Power Consumption (Max.): 200W
(my 27" 1440p monitor uses 49W max)

Specs:
https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg...ed-monitor

I would pass on this (for me).
The specs also say Power Consumption (Typ.) 95W. My Dell 43" 4K is 75W so yes, that's still a bit high but it isn't going to draw 200W in typical use. 60Hz refresh is pretty normal for a monitor designed for productivity. Dell 43" 4k is 5 ms in Fast mode and 8 ms in Normal mode. I would have expected the LG to be similar. Is there no setting on the LG to lower the response time?

How far do you have to sit back in front of this monitor given the size?
I have a similar sized monitor, but different brand. I previously tried a 43:10 (42" widescreen) monitor, but I found those annoying to use since there is not much vertical space.

I am not a graphic designer (if you are, you shouldn't be considering a monitor in this price range anyway) nor am I a gamer. If you are any of those, I probably won't be very helpful.

The thing to keep in mind is that with a monitor this size, you are usually not looking at the entire monitor at once. You have to get good at tiling windows, otherwise it will overwhelm you (MS PowerToys FancyZones is excellent for this, and free). Your attention will shift between areas of the monitor, which is something to get used to.

As for distance, I don't use it any farther than a two-monitor setup.

Basically MS Office type stuff, or any kind of real work that doesn't need color accurate stuff (like video or picture editing). For example when I played poker online professionally I would consider that productivity work.

You must have 4:4:4 chroma subsampling for clear text. And I don't know how you get by with 30hz, the mouse does not behave how you expect. I supposed if you're not clicking on a lot of little buttons, menu options, and spreadsheet cells a lot you could get by (I don't know may programing or writing?) but for most jobs I've ever had that use a computer 60hz is a must.
