43UD79-B 43" 3840x2160 4K IPS 60Hz Widescreen LED Monitor - Black

The 43UD79-B, this 42.5-inch display has a native UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a conventional refresh rate of 60Hz. It features an IPS panel with a non-glare coating, a peak brightness of 350 cd/m2, a contrast ratio of up to 1000:1, and an 8ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time. The viewing angles are wide at 178°/178°, which is typical for an IPS display. Although support for 1.07 billion colors is claimed, the lack of an explicit mention of a 10-bit panel leads us to believe that this is an 8-bit panel using A-FRC to achieve a 10-bit color depth. On the plus side, this model will ship color calibrated from the factory.

First you need to know this is a beast of monitor, but that is good thing and the main reason I purchased it. I wanted the extra real-estate and I have not been disappointed; out of the box the colour setting is bit blue and way too bright but once you a

Good but not Perfect

Matt Screen, so no reflections of yourself or glare. I've observed no burn-in, unlike problems that have plagued other 43" panels. Haven't got an issue with backlight uniformity, but others may be more sensitive to this. Good viewing angles and color accuracy with IPS screen.

The bad: there's a shadowing effect around the edges of the screen, as if you can see the back of the black bezel behind the screen. It affects the bottom and sides from a normal seated position, and is around 10 pixels wide. How can you guys at LG have let this pass?

The stand is sturdy, but has no height adjustment. The monitor is set too high imo (I think they did this to allow access to the OSD controls). I've switched stands and set it 1" off the desk and this makes for much more comfortable viewing.

If you use the HDMI cable for 4K, make sure to set HDMI to Ultra HD Deep Color, otherwise you'll be stuck @30Hz. If you use Nvidia gfx, also set color depth to full from limited in control panel, as it defaults to this on HDMI.

Overall pleased with product, but still not the perfect 43" screen.

Excellent monitor for the price

I purchases an Iiyama ProLite X4071UHSU-B1 last year from Scan and was satisfied with my purchase but not happy. I was satisfied to make do.

Managed to get some pennies together and purchased this monitor as a replacement and it is much better than the Iiyama monitor. Viewing angles are better as are colour and contrast range. I haven't done any G2G tests on the new monitor so cannot comment on that aspect. The Iiyama monitor was also slow to respond on boot or sleep wake up, not so with this model, it is definitely more responsive.

Mainly used for programming work and as such the real estate this monitor offers is excellent and the text is crisp and clear, refresh rate on DP 1.2 @ 60Hz is lovely.

Gaming is mostly Elite Dangerous and running @4K with high detail on a 1080 is very good on this monitor. I see no screen tearing or texture issues when playing. Colour reproduction is good with decent blacks and a good contrast range. If you're a more demanding pro gamer then this probably won't be the monitor for you but the for the price....

If you're looking for a big 4K monitor then I would suggest that you give this some serious consideration, reviews on ye olde webbe are hard to come by but there are some basic videos on YouTube.

Hope this helps.

Good monitor for working if you have the desk space

I bought this monitor to replace 2 x 24" monitors that I was using previously. This single monitor is the same width. Initially the size is quite daunting but you quickly yet used to it. What I have noticed is that I rarely put any important windows on the top half of the screen as you would have to keep tilting your head up.
Backlight uniformity isn't fantastic, but not something you notice in day to day use. Colour reproduction is good but obviously you will want to turn down the brightness.
I haven't tried this with Freesync yet as I have an nvidia card
