What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Monitor - 1 Drawback For Mac Users One of the two best monitors I've ever used. An unbelievable amount of screen real estate with the ability to connect and display multiple devices on one screeen. There's a huge amount of ports available, including USB C. I love everything about this monitor with one exception. As a Mac user, the monitor does not deliver enough power to charge my 15" MBP (Late 2016). This would be the absolute perfect monitor if it could charge my laptop and one additional USB C would be welcomed. Besides that, what a great monitor. On a side note, the monitor was missing one fo the included cords. After a short online chat with LG customer service, I had the cable at my door in 3 days - thank you LG customer service! You can't really go wrong with this one, especially at the price point for a 43" 4k monitor!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great display, but mine has some problems The display itself looks nice! The size is perfect for 4k, and doesn't require Windows scaling at all. Of course the 4k screen real estate really makes things productive in use. I do have some problems with mine as shipped from Beach Camera (great deal!). The problems aren't theirs as this isn't a refurb, and the box was factory sealed. 1). The audio amplifier or speakers are shot. Staticy at any volume level by way of HDMI or DisplayPort. Dunno what happened, but it happened at the factory. 2). At seemingly random times, the monitor will black out for two to three seconds. This doesn't happen often, but still, it seems to be several times a day. I am downloading the software so that I can see if this is fixed in a firmware update. Provided that mine was just bad luck of the draw, I would recommend this monitor to my family and friends. As for the speakers, that isn't too big an issue, as my motherboard has some rather high end audio on it, and I patch that direct to my stereo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best display I've had so far. So I have had this monitor for a month and I must say that it is AMAZING. At first it took a while to get used to because it is so much bigger than most displays that people have. Before, I had an average sized monitor so it took awhile to get used to. The monitor has crystal clear 4K with videos and for gaming. The games look amazingly detailed and with such a big size it is greatly immersive. I have had different LG monitors for 10 years now and they never fail or have any defects. LG products are more affordable while still delivering the top quality that you want. If you want this monitor for gaming or for productive work, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How did I ever live without this? I didn't know what pure black and white was, until I bought fantastic monitor. I've been so much more productive with the immense screen real estate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 4K Display, Has some issues.. Pro: Display Port 4k 60hz 4:4:4 w/ 10 bit color out of the box with my 980 Ti graphics card. Much better input lag compared to standard 4K TVs. Cons: Only 43 inches. Wierd gradient edging on sides of display. Stand is pretty terrible. Inputs are very difficult to get to. (Should be on the side.) IPS display will last longer then unreliable OLED tech. Could not get firmware updated due to USB-C port seemingly defective...

I have the LG 43UD79-B. I did not receive a software CD. I can't find the Dual Controller software on the website. This monitor has dual controllers. Do I need the software to utilize dual controllers or is it automatic with PBP and PIP?

Can you hook up 2 separate computers to this monitor and use it as a dual monitor for both computers? Currently using quad monitors and would love to cut back.
