From 2 years living that life, between 2.5' and 3.0' away on your desk is just fine.

I agree it's not a gaming monitor re refresh rate etc. However it is a very good price for an IPS productivity monitor of this type with a high quality stand.redflagdealsguy wrote: ↑ It appears nothing at all makes this a gaming monitor, other than slapping on the name 'gaming'.
At the risk of pumping TVs as monitors incessantly. You can get the following great IPS TVs to be used as monitors.
LG 43UN6951 43" 4K IPS TV (2020) - 4K60 w/ Improved RGBW - $398 CAD (Walmart) [See @seafish website for stock.]
LG 43UN7300 43" 4K IPS TV (2020) - 4K60 w/ RGB 4:4:4 - $548 CAD (Walmart)
LG 43UN7000 43" 4K IPS TV (2020) - US Model, Similar to UN7300 - $395 CAD Equivalent Pre-tax Ontario (B&H Video) [Ships from USA]
The last of the three is most intriguing as it only costs what amounts $395 CAD + tax, after taxes, duties, and shipping are rolled in.

Right now, we have buyers locking in their orders on a 30-day return window between now and Back to School... just in case a better deal arrives.Blubbs wrote: ↑ I agree it's not a gaming monitor re refresh rate etc. However it is a very good price for a productivity monitor of this type with a high quality stand.
I tried your 43" TV recommendation as a monitor and it sucks. It's comically huge and doesn't work well. And viewing angles suck even with IPS. I want my monitor to work like a monitor. They are very different things at the end of the day.

That’s living it big if you’re going 65”.

Having a big desk so you can fit a big TV further back instead of a monitor is not living a better life, lol. Unless you have issues with focusing your eyes.

This is a topic of discussion I'm happy to expand on in the C&E forum. I will stop here out of respect to OP.monkey_bongo wrote: ↑ That’s living it big if you’re going 65”.
I found that 43” didn’t work for my cube life unless you were mixing some TV and console gaming in. I found the sharpness was not great for spreadsheets and reviewing documents. I much preferred the dual 27” or 32” setups for wider workspaces. I found bigger 43” just made things taller and with unusable dead space near the top.

I also tried out 40" TV and it didn't work at all. It was just too high and wide unless I put the TV back further and it completely screwed up the arrangement of the work space.Blubbs wrote: ↑ I tried your 43" TV recommendation as a monitor and it sucks.

By the way, extra size is straight up bad for you if it creates an unergonomic seating position, which is absolutely the case with something that has the height of a 43" TV.
