The 2020 headline LG 4K monitor is UltraFine Ergo (32UN880), a 32-inch 4K screen that floats on a post fixed to your desk. LG likes to launch LG 4K monitors before CES, but if you value every inch of free space on your desk, its latest batch of products may be particularly interesting.
It can rotate the display 280 degrees horizontally and 25 degrees vertically. You can position the display where you need it for your creative workflow, or you can rotate the display to show your project to colleagues.
IPS panels are undoubtedly creative for ports with 95% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, HDR10 support, and ports including USB-C, DisplayPort and two HDMI ports. Although FreeSync support and a response time of 5ms pixels make it at least capable, it is not a game monitor.
If you want the LG 4K monitor for gaming, you can do it. It will launch 27-inch, 34-inch, and 38-inch UltraGear displays (27GN950, 34GN850, and 38GN950) with minor adjustments to what you see in mid-2019, including a more robust stand.
The core is still a rare combination of colorful IPS panels with ultra-fast 1ms pixel response speed. The exact performance you get depends on the screen size you choose.
All three features have a 144Hz refresh rate (can be overclocked to 160Hz) and G-Sync compatibility, but if you want brighter DisplayHDR 600 support, you need to choose a 27 or 38-inch model-the upper limit of 34-inches is “just DisplayHDR 400.
It debuted with a 38-inch Curved UltraWide (38WN95C) covering all bases. The 3,840 x 1,600 screen requires IPS, 1 millisecond pixel response time, G-Sync compatibility and DisplayHDR 600 support, but it is more accurate than Ergo and its DCI-P3 space coverage reaches 98%.
There is also a Thunderbolt 3 port, so this may be ideal for Mac users and other users who want to use a high-speed cable between the monitor and computer.
LG has not discussed pricing or availability, although the two may vary by region. It’s safe to say that these screens are not cheap.
