    LG 43UD79-B Reviews

    43UD79-B 43" 16:9 4K IPS Monitor is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty. I'm simple. I'm a gamer that loves movies. I had a 40in 4k that was from another place that ghosted very noticeably. This one is very crisp so far. The colors to my eyes are much better as well. Cons it's an ips so you have a bit of back light bleed and the blacks suffer for that a hair especially at the corners. The left and right edges also have a of inner wrapping that is odd but unless your looking at it you don't see. I'm very pleased so far. I've not played with any settings yet to see if I can reduce the backlight bleed door the contrast.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Huge Real Estate on One Monitor If you have enough space to enjoy this monitor from a distance, it's a much better solution that two 27 monitors or a 38 UW monitor. The increased vertical space is very handy for arranging windows and makes for nice tall windows for email and browsing. View massive spreadsheets. I find that it is about right for me at 42 from the edge of the desk where I sit. I'd say 36 distance from the monitor would be the least where it's comfortable, with about 40 or 42 inches being better. NOTE: it does not charge the macbook pro via USB-C...it only outputs 7.5 watts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real-estate. The screen is large enough to accommodate 4K resolution without the need to use any software scaling. As far as I can tell this is an sRGB monitor with some kind of fancy HDMI ULTRA Deep Color, which doesn't seem to make too much of a difference when used with a computer. After Effects seamed to have a drawing issue while using HDMI (Nvidia 1080) but was corrected when I changed to the Display Port. While the color doesn't compare to a wide gamut monitor, the price it on point and the LG 43UD79-B is well worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for a Week - So Far So Good I bought this to give me larger images and text as well as more display space.? I use it with two computers - personal Mac with Thunderbolt 3 and church owned Surface Book (Windows 10) through a Surface dock (mini dispaly to display port).? It works so much better than the Sony 43 inch TV I tested out.? Didn't know a large monitor like this was even affordable, but nearly the same price as the TV ($10 more). I get what I hoped and can easily change resolution for the type of work I am doing which is mostly remote training for church computers at various locations, but use it for video and photo editing using my iMac 27 - great 2nd monitor with good color.? It isn't as sharp as the iMac 27 5K, but good enough for me.? The text is sharp and images clear.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Started Flickering and No Longer Supports HDCP 2.2 When I first received the monitor, it worked great. But after about one month it started flickering periodically. Now it flickers a lot. I have the latest graphics card driver installed and the graphics driver supports HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0a. I have updated the firmware and the monitor driver from LG. But the problem persists. Also, for about a month I could play 4K Blu Ray DVDs. I use Power DVD 17 from Cyberlink and it worked fine and I could play 4K Blu Ray DVDs. Now, it will not verify that it supports HDCP 2.2 which is essential for playing 4K Blu Ray DVD. And the monitor used to pass the Cyberlink Ultra Blu Ray Advisor requirements. But now it will not pass. It states that the monitor does not support Ultra HD 4K Blu Ray DVD's. This may not be an issue for you but I purchased this monitor to view Ultra HD 4K Blu Ray DVDs. So, for me this is a DON'T RECOMMEND and a DON'T BUY.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor I've only had the monitor a few weeks, but it has become indispensable. I use it mainly for document preparation, spreadsheets, web surfing, and gaming. Videos and movies look incredible on this monitor. The monitor replaced two 32" monitors and provides an incredible amount of surface area to get work done. I am really happy with the display characteristics of the monitor. What is a real bonus is the quality of the speakers. I was planning on purchasing cheap bookend speakers for my system, but the sound from the monitor speakers is actually very good in quality, and there is no need to buy additional speakers. The provided remote control works well too for controlling volume.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 43 4K monitor This is a great 43 4k monitor. I mainly use this monitor for scientific paper reading and computer programming. Pros: - Awesome display quality for this price. I think it is the best 43 4K monitor in current generation. - Convenient remote for settings - USB-C support Cons: - Compare to other size display, such as ASUS PB278Q, the image quality is not that good. But this is very common issue in 43 4K monitors. - Mine has several dead pixels - At the border of display, some pixels seems darker than others. It seems like the light distribution is not good. When I see the pixels orthogonal direction, they are not dark. However, when I see from the center of the display (normal viewpoint) then those pixels seems dark. - USB-C cable is not included. I had to buy $30 usb-c cable. One should double check whether a USB-C cable truly supports DisplayPort or not.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great monitor for the price, pairs well with a 2016 MacBkPro Beware : the HDMI cable that comes with it will NOT support 4k @ 60Hz. It also does not com with a USB-C cable (make sure you get a 10Gb/sec compatible one for the same reason). Once I changed out the HDMI cable with a better one, bingo.
