If you work in creative media, chances are, you’ve come across LG’s UltraFine monitors. They’re quite popular in the field, with their high resolution, great image quality, and easy integration with most any platform. The LG UltraFine Ergo 32-Inch 4K Monitor brings the same things, albeit with a new stand that anyone with a crowded desk will absolutely appreciate.
Equipped with a space-saving stand, the monitor actually to the edge of a desk, taking up very little actual space on the surface, giving you more room for all your computing peripherals. That way, you can have your laptop, keyboard, mouse, drawing tablet, control knob, and all sorts of accessories right on the desk, all within easy reach as soon as you need them.
The LG UltraFine Ergo 31.5-Inch 4K Monitor doesn’t just help you save space on the desk with its clamp-style stand. Instead, it mounts the monitor on a hinge that allows it to swivel up to 280 degrees horizontally and tilt 25 degrees vertically, as well as move a few inches to either side, raise above eye level, lower to desk level, and even spin it 180 degrees, turning the display to face the other side. Plus, you can always clamp it somewhere else, if you need a more drastic change of position. Basically, you can use this to put the display exactly where you need it, ensuring it completely supports your creative workflow.
It has an IPS panel with 4K UHD resolution, so you can see everything in crisp and sharp detail, with 95 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut and HDR-10 support making this a perfect fit for creative professionals. Unlike many of LG’s previous UltraFine monitors, it’s not actually designed for Mac users, with the panel coming with a USB-C port instead of the Thunderbolt 3 from previous models. It also gets one DisplayPort and two HDMI ports. While not designed for gaming, it does come with FreeSync support and a 5ms pixel response time, which should make it competent enough for all but the pickiest gamers.
Basically, if you do any kind of resource-intensive creative work on PCs, the LG UltraFine Ergo 32-Inch 4K Monitor should make for an interesting option. It might even serve as a primary consideration if you place premium value on your desk space, as the only surface area it covers is a small patch that’s used up by the clamp. At least, this is the case for PC users. Mac users might want to opt for something with Thunderbolt 3 to maximize their laptop’s charging efficiency when hooked up to the monitor.
Aside from this 4K display, LG also announced a new lineup of gaming monitors. This includes three UltraGear displays, which boast 144Hz and 160Hz refresh rates, hardware calibration, DisplayHDR 600 support, and NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility. There’s also a new curved Ultrawide 38-inch panel, which brings QHD+ resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, , DisplayHDR 600 support, Adaptive-Sync, and NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility.
The LG UltraFine Ergo 31.5-Inch 4K Monitor will debut at the upcoming CES trade show.
