    What justifies the price difference between this and the LG 27UD60-B I paid $259.00 for over a year ago?

    great monitor :) but the price is out of my range for a monitor..

    this works for me:
    Vizio V40" TV https://www.costco.com/Vizio-V-Series-40"-Class-(39.5"-Diag.)-4K-HDR-SMART-TV.product.100481773.html for $229 (until 5/12/2019)
    this is pva not ips though...
    I use it for Monitor with heavily modified setting since default "computer" setting mode is not good, enabled UHD on every HDMI ports, and set rgb/4:4:4:/fullrange.

    Costco has 90 days return window, I am going to try vizio M 43" 2019 model with quantum that would be released in June. Costco usually have a discount. if M43 is better, I can easily return V 40" without hassle within 90 days :-D

    To continue the OT: I tried using a 43in 4k panel as a monitor. I found I could only use 1/2 of it at a time for productive work, which lead to me using 2x 24in monitors stacked which I liked a lot more.

    I have been playing with multi monitor setups for productivity for a long time and have settled on three 24" monitors. They are setup with the center one horizontal and then vertical ones on each side. Works wonderfully.

    I read a recent study that basically said 24” or more is the most productive, with diminishing returns after that. 2 x 24” was more productive than single 27” but with more space, power, cost etc.

    Having said this just an observation at my office is that we had a lot of people who loves using 2 monitors (2x24”) and when we renovated so many of them switched to preferring a single 27”. (Hot dealing environment)
    Makes me wish we did the office all single 27” but anyway we’re reusing 24” monitors in pairs.

    I have 2 27" LG's that are 4k/LED panels and they are worth every single penny I paid for them. No heat, great resolution, and outstanding quality. You have the potential to spend lots of hours in front of these screens, are your eyes not worth the extra bit of $$$?

    A couple of years ago I splurged on a 32" 4k LED/IPS display, it's absolutely worth every penny I paid for it. Good displays are amazing when you spend 12 hours using them daily. Mine only does around 72hz, but that's fine because I spend more time working these days than gaming.

    I keep a second 19" 16:10 display on my desk (rotated 90 degrees) that's about the same height as my primary, I use it for debugging and resource usage monitoring.

    Can anyone tell me what the point of FreeSync is when it's a 60Hz panel?


    I really like the display, but if I go 4K, I'm going to try and get something more than 60Hz Since that's what I have and I play FPS games. I heard that having higher clocked panels is supposed to be the bees knees, but I have yet to experience one in real life.

    In most games, pushing more than 60 FPS at 4K is hard without top-tier hardware. FreeSync (or G-Sync) on a 60Hz panel still alleviates screen tearing (and/or FPS dips & stutters with V-sync) below 60 FPS, a range you'll likely be in at 4K.

    If you're purchasing top-shelf hardware to game at >60 FPS at 4K you likely won't be looking at 60 Hz monitors anyway.

    I have been using 24" Dell Sharp since 2005. and dual monitors are the best.
    2 monitors at work too: 14" UHD laptop with external monitor 21:9 ( similar likes this LG 29UM58-P: 29 Class 21:9 UltraWide® Full HD IPS LED Monitor (29 Diagonal) | LG USA)
    I am getting spoiled with wide screen monitor due on easy to open multiple terminal (ouch... linux related) and multiple browsers. I have tendency to use command-line as possible ..:)

    back to my old setup. I was feeling that 16:10 2X24 dual monitor crippled me to open multiple terminals and windows. switching terminal/apps/browser without mouse, was a pain in the b...t.. snce was all over on 1st and 2nd monitor.

    I saw costco has vizio V40" , well try it and don like it... I have 90 days to return no question ask.
    kind of like it now, multiple terminals/apps/browser can be switch with ALT-Key functionality.
    and repurpose old 24 Dell Sharp monitor for 2nd display with 90 degrees angle. I sort shortcut and some quick link on 2nd display.
    one thing I realized, How yellowish my trusted 24" sharp monitor (bought in 2005). yeah the backlight is aging...:-|

    I think 40-43" is my preferences for maximum screen size for 4K (or 8K? hehehe).

    I wish Samsung still sold a 43" curved TV. The smallest curved TV on the market now is 55".

    my trial screen configuration with vizio V 40", it was dual monitor with 24" dell sharp monitors.

    vizio V 40" on the left, and old Dell sharp monitor 2408WFP (yellowish due on CFL backlight aging, the color adjustment is the best configuration on my effort to reduce yellowish)
