That's LG's branding of my monitor, the Wasabi Mango UHD430. The only differences I see are the USB Type C port and the black bezel, because my panel is LG's 10-bit IPS display.

Finally a mainstream 40"+ Freesync screen. I'll be watching this with keen interest.

So what do you think of it?

I really like it. True, it's not a high refresh rate, and the response time is not 'gamer approved', but overall I'm happy with this monitor. I'm not a competitive gamer, but I still get to enjoy games in [email protected] via the DP 1.2 input. 43" of 4K real estate is very handy and easily adjusted to - I switched to this from a Samsung S34E790C 34" curved monitor.

I have two computers, I would like to do two super wide screen layouts... can this monitor do 3840x1080 on a dingle DP/HDMI cable? I wish the monitor had more DP inputs...

I've never tried that, mainly because I've only got one computer capable of 3840x2160 output: My server and my company provided laptop can't reach resolutions above 1920x1080, which means that I've got them connected to the HDMI 1.4 ports and use the included remote control to switch back and forth between the display outputs.

What is input lag like on the monitor? What about ghosting?

It's not a competitive gaming type of input lag, that's for sure. I've never measured it, but I'd say that it's close to what LG states for their 43UD79-B which means that strictly gamers will poo-poo it.

As far as ghosting is concerned I've not experienced any, and I made it a point to test that out right away.

A side note: The pixel density is the same as a 27" 1440p monitor.
