How big is TOO BIG? My Review of LG’s MASSIVE 43″ IPS 4K Monitor [43UD79]

Find the best price for LG 43UD79-B here:

A few weeks ago I decided to upgrade my dual monitor setup at my home studio. I saw that LG had released their new 43″ giant display and I took the risk by ordering it.

By the time I did this review, the monitor had gained a lot of momentum and positive feedback online and there’s a reason for it.

For its price, the LG 43UD79-B is an awesome deal that provides an immersive experience for both working and gaming.

For almost $700 you get:
• 42.5″ calibrated 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS panel
• 4x HDMI Inputs
• USB Type-C
• HDCP 2.2 Compatibility
• Remote Control
• 10 Watt Built-in Speakers
• Multiple Windows At Once

If you’re like me and only want to see the monitor set up and him reviewing it (rather that the buying journey and unboxing), skip to 3:03

markiangooley says:

I’d love to see a comparison of this with a 43-inch 4K television. Those can cost half as much, or less. I’m sure that this is better, but how much better?

Emilio says:

People into Music Production, Video Editing and Media Consumption. This is the monitor for you.

Lothar Scholz says:

Now i want to see a monitor with better software. I want an integrated KVM switch (already existing but uncomfortable compared with real KVM). And the ability to have 4x1920x1080 screens shown on one of this monitors which can be connected to 4 computer/output devices, including seemless mouse and keyboard switching when i move the mouse in the range of one displayed output. I found a KVM switch for 4K doing exactly this, but for a price of 1900 Euro.

Andreas Weinzierl says:

Did not get a USB-Typ C cable either, but my retailer sent me one as I asked for it.

brygenon says:

A couple years ago I bought a 48 inch (122cm) UHD TV that can do 4:4:4 color to use as my computer monitor. Getting it adapted and configured was a world of trial and error, and there are still annoyances due to its TV heart, but within minutes of getting it working I knew I would never go back. I’m looking at it now. No, it’s not “too big”. The vast majority of computer monitors are too small.

Rivera Luis says:

I always wondered about having a big screen vs 2 screen option. Thanks for the video old friend, I am thinking about getting 2 screens for photography. Like always keep up the great work!

Kabar Mariel says:
