LG Monitor Line-up 2018
LG not only presented an excellent set of new TVs at CES 2018, they also delivered on a diverse and well designed selection of monitors. These screens ranged from a focus on work to some that are more leaning towards gaming or casual play. With that, here are the various options that were there and some thoughts after seeing them run. There was a mix of photo editing and games being displayed such as Halo Wars 2 on one of the screens at the show floor. All of the monitor screens were in a bright side area so it was easy to get a look at the sleek options that were present. It was a more calm walkthrough considering every other area was just packed to the brim with people.
First off there's the 32-inch UHD 4K monitor (model 32UK950) which is LG's first to use Nano-IPS technology. This tech involves the application of nanometer sized particles to the LEDs to absorb excess light wave lengths. This in turn enhances the purity of on screen colors for a more accurate and life like viewing. This monitor can display 98% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum. There's support for HDR 600 and Thunderbolt 3 docking display for daisy locking dual 4k screens. The monitor's single Thunderbolt 3 cable can transmit 4K content and sound while providing enough charge to power a 60W notebook, simplifying any environment. This is all tied together with the Edge ArcLine Stand and stunning four side edge borderless design for picture that flows right off the screen.
LG’s next option is the 34 inch UltraWide monitor (model 34WK95U). This screen delivers a broad range of accurate colors and viewing angles at a surreal 5K resolution (5120 x 2160 pixels) for a 21:9 ratio. This provides a ton of screen space for those that work on multiple projects at the same for maximum real estate on the desktop. This is really quite a dream as even though larger screens have been around for awhile, that extra side space makes it easier to work on multiple projects without swapping windows.
The final model on display was the model 34WK95U with Nano IPS technology. HDR 600 is also supported along with a Thunderbolt 3 port. The screen is of 5k resolution at 60hz featuring four side edge borderless design and gorgeous slim Edge ArcLine Stand.
There's not a ton of details present for the monitors at the moment but I got to take a quick look at them while I was on my tour. The move to 5k offers an extra level of clarity for those that work on high quality design projects. They also allow a richer level of color and style for those that wish to use them for gaming. There's a decent selection here that cover all aspects of what a modern monitor might be needed for and at the best level of resolution one could realistically desire at this point. If you're looking for lots of space you can go ultra wide, if you want something more traditional you have a couple choices in size and the technology that backs it. It's great to patch multiple 4k monitors together and honestly that's quite crazy for work.
