    Hi all, as per title really, I've 'chosen' to go big before I went home after a few drinks tonight, the model is LG 43UM7000pla, currently on sale in UK for £280 and some 5% cashback later on.

    few video searches now i'm home and the whole 43 um7000 -7400 range seem to be exactly the same panel spec bar the google/alexa stuff that I don't want, so with any luck the response time in game mode should be the 12ms i'm reading. which i'm perfectly fine with for getting some better colours to look at.

    the slightly less drunk side of me sees it as a pretty ok spec, it's going to be placed on an ikea fredde desk/ wall mounted away from it maybe as I've not even measured anything and replacing my trusty benq xl2420t 144hz which I'm sure i'll hold onto still.


    the rig is a 6700k, gtx 1070, I appreciate that I have no way of running maxed out games anymore going from 1080 to 4k but my ~~incredible~~ idea is to basically treat it like 4 1080p monitors for most stuff and full screen 4k on anything that'll do 60fps (older stuff)


    not interested in HDR really and don't expect anything great at the price, have I done goofed or is this not so stupid?
    looking past the obvious 60hz- i don't know if i can overclock this at a lower res yet, researching after buying clearly, sober me will have a proper dig tomorrow.....


    Looking for thoughts from people who understand all the techy breakdowns from the site links thank you.

    Ok seeing as there is no response yet, I can make my own floating screen mount with this Freddie desk and modify a new top shelf and fit the screen, luckily the desk is deep enough and screen will only be 100mm maybe even 90mm away from wall compared to my current monitor at 190mm, so bigger screen shouldn't feel too bad at all, it'll be here in a week.

    I'm sure I'll miss 144hz but if everything else checks out then it should be pretty sweet, may even battlestation worthy.

    Until then I'll keep waiting for this elusive overclockers only LG 850.....

    I use a 4k60 43 inch and have use 4k60 for a few years in various sizes 28/40/43 and it has been great, none of my screens have the greatest response time, I think 16ms is the best I have though and I do notice when I am on faster screens the improved response, it is not enough to put me off though as I like using large screens for productivity and gaming, if I was into fast paced twitch shooters I might have another opinion.

    That's good to hear, I'm sure it'll look ridiculous at first but the extra real estate will be put to good use outside gaming
