    I am not clear on how you are connecting your current monitors. Also, how were you connecting your 4K monitors? I.E., what ports were you using?

    @Eaglepi -

    I have not gone beyond a 4K 27 inch display but feel 43 inches is for presentation only.
    You can't sit that close - it will never look right and burn your eyes.

    May I ask why you need a 4K monitor?

    I agree. From up close it's a pain.
    Not to mention some neck strain from all the head turning.
    Tried a 40' screen once and whoa nelly! Distance.

    Depends on personal choice as well. I'm on 32' monitor and it's the sweet spot for max size. 27' is also perfect.

    I've got a 32 inch 4K monitor. I don't think I would want to go any bigger than that. 32 inches is basically my field of view, but I still have to do some head turning now and then. It's not that severe, but I can't imagine it would be easy on a larger monitor up close.

    Yikes.

    I also have a 32" 4K monitor and was afraid it might be too big when I ordered it, but it turned out to be just right. It's driven by a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and running on Win 10. I'm using the display port connection and have the graphics scale set at 175%.

    I use my 50" LG smart TV occasionally (mostly for watching movies). At 4K I use 300% scaling and I sit 3-4 meters away to use it. Not very convenient for working with text for long time, but is OK.
