Need a monster monitor for editing, gaming or simply running four devices simultaneously? Search no more. LG just revealed a 42.5-inch UHD monitor with 4K resolution and the ability to display up to four screens in the same time #hardwaremagic
LG 43UD79-B (I know, it’s a name you’ll definitely remember) offers a 3840 × 2160 resolution, over 1.07 billion colors and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. It’s definitely a gem for those working in video or photo editing as well as graphic designers and creatives. At that dimensions, it offers pretty good 178-degree viewing angles horizontally and vertically. Depending on your “vice”, it can be programmed to work in three modes: Game Mode, Black Stabilizer and Dynamic Action Sync mode.
For the first category, the avid gamers, good news: this monitor is compatible with AMD’s FreeSynch refresh rate tech so you won’t experience visual stutters. The rest of you shouldn’t worry – you can connect up to four devices through two HDMI 2.0 inputs and two HDMI 1.4 inputs. As a matter of fact, this guy has a lot of ports; the first four are joined by a DisplayPort 1.2a (4K at 60Hz) and a USB Type C that supports a DisplayPort signal, too. Plus, you get other two normal USB 3.0 ports for peripherals – mouse and keyboard.
This variety of ports allow several split-screen configurations and picture-in-picture support. To top it all off, LG’s 42.5-inch monitor comes with a remote control so you can easily transform it into a 4K TV for movie night with friends.
This incredible device will sell in Japan this May 19th at the price of 83,000 Yen (or about $745 US).
