LG soon to release 27MU67 4K 27 Inch Monitor for $599

lg_4k

LG labels this monitor as a gaming monitor.  It has a 27 inch panel with 3840×2160 resolution, HDMI 2.0 ports, HDCP 2.2 and sRGB 99% with 10 bit colour.

Given that this is an IPS monitor we are happy with the price, but prices of 4K monitors will continue to come down in 2015 and beyond.

LG has a listing for this monitor on its website.

We are a bit concerned about the HDMI 2.0 ports given that HDMI 2.0a is on its way.

LG’s UF9400 Quantum Dot 65 Inch TV

lg_uf9400_tv

Quantum Dot to us really just means a potential step up from non-OLED technology but still not as good as OLED.  Most content that is available today does not have a color-space that would allow the Quantum Dot technology to shine.  Still, anything that improves the color gamut over the usual technologies is a step in the right direction.  The figure that is getting quoted repeatedly is that Quantum Dot is 30% better (in color reproduction) than standard LCD TV’s (although this is probably the best case scenario with properly sourced content).

This TV can handle 4K 60p, H.265, and has LG’s webOS 2.0.

EOSHD reviews the LG 31MU97-B 4K Monitor

lg_4k_monitor

Andrew Reid of EOSHD recently completed a review on the 4K LG 31MU97-B monitor which has the following features:

  • 31″ Class (31″ diagonal)
  • 10bit IPS panel
  • Adobe RGB 99.5% color gamut
  • 17:9 aspect ratio
  • 4096×2160 resolution
  • 1M:1 (DFC) contrast ratio
  • 178/178 degree viewing angle
  • Advanced anti-glare

The LG 4K DCI monitor is great for editing especially for those who multitask between two apps open on the same display at any one time. You have vast amounts of resolution when using 1:1 mapping in 4K DCI to exploit and take a true birds-eye view of what you’re doing. Then when you go and surf the web for cat videos you can just drop the resolution (virtually) using the Apple retina display controls in the system menus.
