When it comes to a monitor, durability probably doesn't matter.

Probably not, since we have LED backlights. The only monitor age-related problem I've seen so far was color shift on old CCFLs.

By the time a moderately priced 4K monitor wears out, they will be making 8K monitors.

If you don't mind a big screen and are willing to spend the bucks, here you are:

Funny thing that your bring up CCFLs. The primary reason I'm looking to purchase a new monitor is because I've been having backlight issues with my Apple Cinema HD Display (30" circa 2006).

That's pretty good longevity; our heavily-used 2009 laptop got retired last year because the backlight had turned visibly orangish. I'm not complaining; I have no idea how many thousands of hours of operation it had on it, but it was a lot.
