TV are Diff, monitor better for eye and gaming refresh rate

Only if you play FPS and is a competitive gamer.
Otherwise it doesn't affect that much.

Most are just marketing gimmick, or ownself PCC ownself song.

I’ve been using 43 inch TV as monitor for the past year. It’s very comfortable actually. If you find it’s too bright for the eye just use warm color profile.

TV sit so close within 1m worth cause strain to eye?

The only 43” with higher refresh rate is the one ASUS mentioned above but that one is very expensive. And besides a lot of games when you run 4k res with all bells and whistles the FPS will hover around 50-70 anyway even with RTX 2080ti.

You could buy a 43” iPs monitor under 1.1k but 2019 LED TVs are discounted now under 1k. They have very good image quality and also good smart or android features. I’m currently using Samsung RU7400 which is one of the most highest rated mid range panels.

Basically is

High refresh va vs ips

LED TVs can't do customized PIPs, if you have a 43" screen estate I am sure you won't be opening just a browser tab that big alone. With multiple PIPs, you can divide and arrange your screen to accommodate multiple browser tabs or program windows. Both Dell and LG have this feature and their price are very close, definately less than $1600.

A lot of people are not aware of this but nowadays can just use windows key shortcuts to auto resize windows to quarter size and snap them to corners.
