More details on this part please
Let them know you're looking to pay less than $400 and haggle from there. You might start at a lower number and work your way up.

I don't have a magic bullet sadly.

In more good news, the panel from Viisons comes with two years warranty, which might mean you get three years with the credit card extension (use your Costco Mastercard).

Guys, how about this tv compared to TCL 43S425 which is $100 cheaper? I need a 43 inch tv for a room that never has a direct sunlight.

The TCL 43" should work well in low light. It's a very good value for the money.

I believe the LG wins the side by side comparison, especially in bright rooms like offices and dens.

For your use case, and with the money saved, the TCL could work well for you.

I assume this will be used as a monitor and media panel?

Thanks for your comments! It will not be used as a monitor, but rather as a TV and media panel.
Another thing that makes me debate between the two options is the WebOS combined with LG magic remote functionality which seems quite appealing to me. On the other hand I tried Roku and didn't like it.

Folks, can anyone suggest an HDMI cable 4K@60Hz? there are plenty of them on amazon but many are a fake advertisement. trying to avoid a hit and miss. i got a pair of HDMI2.0 cables from Amazon basic (cheap) but just noticed that at 4K they do only 24Hz. I'm looking for a USB-C to HDMI dongle to support 4K@60Hz as well.

The Amazon Basics HDMI 2.0 10' cable is the one I use for my 2018 LG UK6300 43" panel.

No issues.

I'm not convinced the GT 650 can push those pixels. I hope I'm wrong.

@stutunaru, if you're mainly doing productivity work, casual YouTube, and movies, 4K30 is tolerable.

Any sort of gaming can cause minor headaches and disorientation at 4K30 though.

Wish I had better news.

Almost any HDMI cable should work. HDMI High Speed (some people incorrectly call them HDMI 1.4 cables) cables are exactly the same as Premium High Speed (aka HDMI 2.0) cables. The only difference is in certification (HDMI 2.0 certification probably costs more money). The only thing that matters is that the devices you are trying to connect support HDMI 2.0. Many older CPUs and GPUs do not support 4K60.

I'm using an HDMI High Speed (HDMI 1.4 certified) cable and it works perfectly for 4K60.

I tend to disagree. I was gaming on my previous 4k@30hz no problem. Witcher, Diablo, borderlands, counterstrike, it's all good. It's glorious. It's all about preference and such. If you NEED 120hz well, you are looking in the wrong place and need 3-4 more wallets for a monitor.

The experience may be livable in non-fast motion games. I know a few years back, many RFDers were operating on their Seiki 39" 4K30 panels with relative comfort.
