[Staples] LG 29WK600 UltraWide HDR10 Monitor ($209.99 + 3% ebates)

I just bought this for productivity. Based on searching around I think this is the lowest price for this monitor. You need to use coupon from ebates to get $20 off $200 (https://www.ebates.ca/staples-canada). Brings price to 209.99 and ebates is 3% off.

Total purchase in Ontario = 237.29 - 6.30 = 230.99

Color Gamut: sRGB over 99%
i.e. While it's a great sRGB panel....you can say goodbye to the HDR experience even though it supports HDR10 'signal'.

Good price for an ultrawide 99% sRGB display with FreeSync @ native resolution at 75Hz over DisplayPort.

I'm pretty sure you can't reasonably get HDR on a monitor anyways. Doesn't it have to be far too bright in order to properly display HDR for a monitor that would sit only a few feet in front of you should be?

agreed, you need over 1000 nit for real HDR. The title HDR10 was just to entice people to look at link :-). It just supports it, I doubt there is much of a benefit of it.

Any advantage of using a regular monitor over a 43" TLC or Hisense 4K TV?

Depends on your usage... most lower end / 2nd tier brand tvs, even at double the price point of this monitor, won't have 4:4:4 chroma (for crisp text), no display port, and likely a VA panel (colour / viewing angle issues depending on your viewing distance).

The TCL 4 Series has 4:4:4 chroma and low input lag so I guess that is ok?
