    43UD79-B 43" 16:9 4K IPS Monitor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
    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 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 3 out of 5 by from Great Screen, USB ports don't work and Xbox have issues I bought this monitor because of the USB mouse & keyboard feature of being able to connect up to 4 computers using 1 Mouse & Keyboard. Unfortunately, this monitor's USB ports are either broken or the item doesn't work as intended. I spend several hours with LG tech support to diagnose the issue and the end conclusion was that LG was going to swap it out for another monitor. They told me that they couldn't do a swap and were going to perform a buyback of the unit. I also tried hooking up my Xbox One S to stream 4k content, but for some reason the Xbox would not recognize the monitor as 4k. You can't update the monitor firmware unless you're using a USB-A to USB-A cable, which won't work if the USB ports (including the USB-C port) don't work. The picture is good and it's a nice monitor for a monitor, but without the added features it's rather expensive. A coworker bought the same monitor about 2 weeks later and he has the same issue as well, meaning that there is either a production/QA issue or it's possible it could be some sort of firmware issue. It's too bad because I was looking at another manufacturer's monitor that is allegedly supposed to perform the same way. I chose the LG because the documentation of how it works was much more descriptive than the competitor. I even called the competitor to try to see if someone could tell me how that unit worked and no one knew how it worked from 3 different departments. They just tried to sell me a compatible computer.

    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 5 out of 5 by from I've been missing out for so long Well, here's my review of this LG 43". Let me set the stage so you can understand the context of where I'm coming from for this review. I've been running 4x Samsung SyncMaster 930B's since 2005 (19" 5:4); yes, that's 12 years on the same monitors. They were good for what they were and served me well. However, I finally updated my 8 year old workstation to a new Ryzen build and the time was right for a display update. I contemplated doing 4x 27" displays in portrait, 3x 32" in portrait, or 2x 43" in landscape. I put together over 30 monitor models into a spreadsheet with every data spec and leveraged them against each other to find the optimal buy for my situation. I spent 18 months going back and forth slowly narrowing it down. In the end, due to some dimensional constraints in my studio, the 3x 32" would not fit and I wasn't sure I wanted to have 4x 27"; since I was coming from 4x 19". It just felt redundant and didn't eliminate some of the issues I wanted to overcome, such as changing inputs manually on each monitor to signal a different box. It was down to essentially the 43" 4K displays on the market; the Acer, Dell, LG, and Viewsonic. The Acer and Viewsonic used the same TP Vision panel that seemed to have some issues with image retention, red-orange splotchy lag, and a few others. The LG and Dell both use a LG panel. What sold me was two points: 1.) The price; $650 each for the LG vs. $900 each for the Dell and 2.) the remote control. So, I ordered my two LG's and waited a week for them to arrive. First impression: This monitor is BIG. I felt a little ridiculous when the poor UPS driver had to lug these to the door. They are the size of a medium TV really... I took them up to my studio and took one out. It still is HUGE. Plugged it in with a 15' DP cable I purchased (the max length specked by VESA for the DP platform) and there it was, glorious ginormous BIOS screen. I loaded into Win10 and it was a magnificent feeling. I'm going to say it one more time, this monitor is HUGE. I've been using my two displays for about a month now. I have them mounted to the wall with some Ergotron arms and I've been loving them. They no longer seem huge, but just right. Having to use anything smaller is a struggle now. 76" @ 8K is where it's at; measuring diagonally across both displays. So, some technical information about this display. I work a day job but run my own side business. I work in Autodesk CAD/Inventor, SolidWorks, Adobe CC (Audition, Photoshop, InDesign, InCopy, Illustrator, Dreamweaver), Corell, Inkscape/G.I.M.P./Scribus, MS Office, LibreOffice, Cubase 9, and some fashion CAD programs. I do a lot and need essentially a monitor that could handle it all. I don't play games or do anything really entertainment based. I wanted a TON of real-estate and these delivered. I'm disappointed in the lack of DisplayPort inputs, 1 is pretty pathetic, though there is a USB-C/DisplayPort input, which technically qualifies it as 2 inputs. HDMI is a proprietary input and there is a royatly that the end-user ends up paying to have it. Additionally, it's an entertainment input; I'm guessing this monitor is geared more towards the consumer than the creator. What makes it worse, is HDMI inputs 1 + 2 are only 30Hz. I'm using one of them now for an auxiliary box and it's pretty laggy. Luckily I don't care about that machine, but it's still annoying. The stand does not have any height adjustment. I don't care since I have mine mounted to the wall. In fact I wish they sold stands separately so those of us that don't use them won't have to pay extra for them, decrease the box size and decrease the shipping weight. Now I have to store them in the attic. Speakers, it has stereo sound. Perfect for the "dings" and "pings" of your operating system. Good enough for telephony, VOIP, voice audio. But if you want music or entertainment, get real speakers; in-monitor speakers are not for that. I'm happy with the speakers for OS sounds. The on/off/menu button. It's a little dongle under the monitor. I'm not crazy about it and wish there was just a few buttons on the front bezel or back instead; oh well. The remote. This was a huge selling point. I can adjust inputs much more easily with this. The downside is if you are running 2 or more of these monitors, the remotes all operate on the same frequency or channel. In other words, one remote controls all the displays! I wish it at least had a dip-switch in the battery compartment for channel 1 or 2; like many cordless ceiling fans have. It's true, there is some strange effect occurring in about the outer most 10 pixels of the panel. If you look straight on center of the display at about 30" you're good. As soon as you look at an angle, you notice this black line along the bezel. Either there is a reflection bouncing around inside the display, or you are seeing "through" the panel at the back bezel. I got used to it and it doesn't interfere with my UI's. Wrap up: AWESOME BEAST!

    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.

    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.
