Oh my, this is 43” 4 k IPS tv that can used as monitor for $428?!

Help me because I just bought and setup the LG 38” 38wk95c that was $850 and was supposed to be the monitor deal of the year:
http://forums.redflagdeals.com/amazon-c ... 9-2303906/

Should I be trying to return the 38wk95c for this 43” IPS LG or does the 38wk95c have advantages that justify the higher price? Any monitor savvy people out there that can help me understand?
Thx!

If you don’t need the free sync and need more screen real estate, definitely a 40-43 inch 4K tv or monitor is better. The dell 43 inch monitor was even on sale yesterday for 869$.

How’s the tv compare to LG 43UD79-B monitor? Same panel? The monitor was on sale on amazon last year for prime members for around the same price. Hopefully they’ll do it again later this year.
I don’t have the lg monitor but if I remember correctly, that monitor allows multiple source split as in you can divide your monitor to play from 4 different sources (1/4 screen each). That feature is only found in a few monitors and pretty much not found in tvs.

As far as panel goes, most reviews pretty much say it’s average, which should be more or less similar to an entry level tv. I believe this tv is slightly brighter than the monitor but the difference is pretty small (within margin for error). Contrast ratio seems slightly better on the tv as well.

Yeah, it was posted by you.Killer deal. Are you suggesting this panel would be similar if not superior than that 2017 monitor?

I also care about the reflection a lot. I returned the 40 inch Samsung one just because of the poor reflection handling. I read this one has excellent reflection handling and better than the Samsung one, maybe worth try.
I'm suggesting 2 years of tech advancement shows in the panel performance of the LG 43UM7300.

As usual, Paigne nails the specifics.

FYI, folks. Four source screen splitting is useless when you can software split screen on one feed... or even dock four windows in Windows 10.

You don't need it unless you want four desktop workstations dumping to one panel.

Ergo, ipso facto, I give the W to the LG 43UM7300.

The LG 43UD79-B lower-tier 2017 monitor is slightly behind in muitlple areas IMO. If you already own this panel though, it's close enough to the 43UM7300 to not make the upgrade worthwhile, wait until 2021 for the upgrade.

For everyone else, enter the LG 43UM7300.

Phenomenal deal. I dont know who is down voting it. I would buy one, but a divorce is more expensive.

You sit your wife down and explain, this is the way it's going to be.

Then, while you're sleeping in the backyard under moonlight for the next week, you'll have the warmth of your rig and 43" panel to keep you comfortable.

Currently on a Dell U3415W..... No rush to upgrade... Should I keep an eye on this for BTS/BF? Or hold out for something better?

If you/we found later in Costco stores selling for less, would it be possible to price match?

Keeps tabs, just in case.

That said, perhaps a 34" ultrawide is more your speed.

I'm a simple man, give me a 43" 16:9 panel and I'm happy for now.

I did feel the little guy move when I saw the 49" 32:9 panel from Samsung, full disclosure.
