    I guess Gigabye uses desks with a depth of 4 meters?

    I don't see how anything beyond 32 inches works on a 80CM desk.

    Also no DP, so this is clearly a Smart TV.

    I use tv's as monitors since 32" 1080p then it went 40" 1080p, 50" 4k and 55" 4k. You can get back in sofa and watch a movie on a big screen or you can have multiple monitor type of setup. Theres a nice tool in MS PowerTools for Win 10 called Fancy Zones, basically you can divide your screen in any proportion and when you hold a window and shift key it can snap to any zone you setup. This way you can divide 55" 4k screen to 4x1080 ~32" screens. Games i play windowed, i dont mind it. Set desktop background to all black, window titlebars to black (for full black you need a registry "hack") and hide desktop icons and start, you wont really see a difference compared to full screen monitor. Some games like civilization i play full screen at ~80cm from a 55" tv, its wonderful! Theres no much need for peripheral vision like in fast games and seeing that map span so large is amazing! What ends up not being in your focus is the interface, menus and such which really doesnt matter. Also when you play games windowed you can do any aspect or resolution you want, some games are way better laid out on ultra wide, some dont even support it, etc.

    There certainly are drawbacks but there are benefits too, if it fits your use case its the most versatile setup for not too much money. Like notch below best tv's are priced marginally above very solid "gaming monitors" while being 4x the size usually and not lacking on features that much and almost always topping the monitor in image quality. I havent played a competitive shooter in years, guess there a TV could be a slight problem but an OLED tv kinda fixes even that (while introducing burn in possibility and driving the price but yeah).

    This monitor is good: it has EARC.
    If you have an pc with a Dolby Atmos (or Dolby HD 7.1) soundbar, the EARC port is a must be.

    Why?
    Size: no, Nvidia Big Format Gaming Display
    Connectivity: many pc screens only have HDMI
    Is VA a tv pannel only?
    FALD: tv only?
    Etc.

    After playing on 32 inch monitor for well over a year I can say I love it ... Honestly I don't think I will have issues jumping to 40 inches I mean people use 3 monitor setups that you sure have to move your head left and right all the time to do things in a much wider area. As far you are fine with multi monitor set up most likely you will be fine with 40 inches ... In the end of the day is personal taste too though.
