South Korean company LG produces almost the largest number of large-size LCD displays in the world. Many screens are eventually integrated into TV sets, which our online magazine has already told you about more than once. South Koreans also produce monitors that can be connected to a desktop computer, laptop, or any other image source. What is important, some models are able to impress the imagination — they will definitely suit both the gamer and the person professionally engaged in video editing. However, there are also simpler LG monitors, which, however, are also worthy of purchase. In short, this collection will tell you about all the best monitors released by LG Electronics-both top-end and mid-budget models were included in the material.

LG 38UC99

6 best LG monitors

The largest monitor in our selection. The diagonal of its display reaches an enchanting 38 inches. At the same time, the device is completely different from any TV that has a similar parameter. The fact is that the monitor screen is stretched out in width, as a result of which it received an aspect ratio of 24:10. Therefore, it is not intended for viewing videos obtained with standard cameras (we do not take large-format movies into account) — you will be hindered by black stripes on the sides. But on such a monitor, games look great. And we are not even talking about simultaneous work in two applications! Also, in favor of the LG 38UC99, some people who are professionally engaged in video editing make their choice. In short, if you regularly encountered situations when you needed a second monitor, be sure to pay attention to this model — in fact, it replaces two regular screens at once.

Traditionally for LG products, the monitor received an IPS display. As you know, such a screen has maximum viewing angles. But we must admit that such a wide display would still be inconvenient to use from a normal workplace if it were not curved. As a result, the monitor also turned out to be very beautiful! People who come to visit you will undoubtedly admire such a miracle of technology! The screen resolution is 3840×1600 pixels — this is quite an adequate parameter for such a diagonal. It doesn’t reach 4K or 5K resolution, but the copy wasn’t the most expensive. Yes, you may not believe it, but now there are computer monitors that cost much more than 70 thousand rubles.

The model that opens our rating has a number of other advantages that cannot be ignored. For example, the screen set here has a response time of 5 MS. Not bad for this size! Of course, this will not be enough for eSports players, but the monitor was not created for them. Regular players will also enjoy the increased refresh rate of 75 Hz. Well, the backlight without flickering will be useful for absolutely everyone — the eyes with it do not strain at all.

The display used here is capable of displaying more than a billion colors. This means that you can even watch HDR content using the monitor. However, do not expect a perfect result — the IPS matrix is equipped with a separate layer with backlight, and therefore the monitor’s capabilities are limited by low contrast.

Of course, the buyer may want to connect the device to several image sources at once. Here, two HDMI 2.0 connectors and one DisplayPort are used for this purpose. There is also the possibility of receiving images via USB. The monitor can also be used as a USB hub — you can connect peripherals to two USB 3.0 connectors. there is also a headphone output on the case of this model. However, you can also use the built-in 10-watt speakers for audio output. The monitor can also transmit audio to a Bluetooth accessory, whether it’s a speaker or headset. In short, impressive! But this is a monitor, not a TV.

The product has received support for FreeSync technology, which is especially important in dynamic games. Well, if we talk about the disadvantages of this model, then you can only find fault with the power supply, which is external. Also, not everyone will like the power consumption that reaches 120 watts. It turns out that the monitor consumes the same amount of electricity as some 50-inch TV.

Dignities

  • The monitor turned out to be very wide;
  • More than a billion colors;
  • High resolution;
  • The maximum viewing angle;
  • The screen is curved;
  • Refresh rate increased to 75 Hz;
  • There is support for FreeSync technology;
  • There is a wall mount available;
  • Audio output via Bluetooth is possible;
  • There are stereo speakers available;
  • Built-in USB hub;
  • Large number of connectors;
  • Implemented flicker-free illumination.

Disadvantages

  • High power consumption;
  • An external power supply is used;
  • Not everyone can afford it;
  • The contrast ratio is only 1000: 1.

LG 34UC89G

6 best LG monitors

Another monitor with a curved screen in our rating. It turned out to be a little cheaper, but also less large. The diagonal of the IPS display used here is reduced to 34 inches. And the aspect ratio was not so impressive. However, 21: 9 is an ideal setting for watching many Hollywood movies, and in most cases there will be no black bars on either side. By the way, in some ways the monitor even surpasses the previously considered model. This representative of our rating can boast a frame refresh rate of 144 Hz. The picture turns out to be as smooth as possible — this is especially noticeable in games, if you use a powerful video card, and action movies.

However, it is still impossible to call the curved screen installed here ideal. Yes, it has a 5ms response time, which should suit many gamers. However, it uses a traditional 8-bit matrix, so you should not count on full-fledged HDR. Well, the manufacturing technology does its job — because of the bright backlight, the contrast is 1000:1. Perhaps because of this, the monitor is recommended for purchase only for gamers — in games, the disadvantages listed above are completely invisible. Such people will be quite satisfied with the standard 16.7 million colors, as well as they will be satisfied with the maximum viewing angles. They will also appreciate the G-Sync feature.

The display was taken care of. However, the monitor does not consist only of it. We must not forget that the image must be transmitted to the screen somehow. The HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1 connectors are used for image reception here.2. And on the back side of the monitor there is a pair of USB 3.0 sockets — they are used to connect any peripherals. The manufacturer did not forget about the headphone output. In short, with such a monitor, you can hide the system unit out of sight, somewhere far away, because all the necessary connectors will be at hand even without it.

If the previous model considered consumed electricity in an unstoppable mode, then the LG 34UC89G shows itself at its best. Of course, 70 watts is also quite a lot, but for such a diagonal, perhaps, it is quite acceptable. Confuses the same power supply, which is external here. However, this is a typical situation for most monitors, especially if we talk exclusively about LG Electronics products.

By default, the monitor is paired with a stand, which is height-adjustable here. But in some cases, it is easier to hang the device on the wall — for this purpose, a standard 100×100 mm VESA mount is used.

Dignities

  • There is support for G-Sync technology;
  • High enough resolution;
  • The maximum viewing angle;
  • Low response time;
  • Very high display refresh rate;
  • A decent number of connectors for image reception;
  • Headphone connection available;
  • There is a USB hub available;
  • It is possible to mount on the wall;
  • The screen is large and curved;
  • The backlight is used without flickering.

Disadvantages

  • An external power supply is used;
  • Not very high contrast ratio;
  • A regular 8-bit matrix;
  • After the purchase, you will have to calibrate it.

LG 27UK650

6 best LG monitors

Of course, our rating will consist not only of purely gaming monitors. For example, the LG 27UK650 is a good option for any use case. It has a standard aspect ratio of 16:9. The screen is flat, but the resolution is brought up to 3840×2160 pixels. This means that the 27-inch monitor with thin bezels is ideal for watching movies and other video content in 4K resolution. We recommend that you also do this with HDR activation — the IPS panel used here supports this, displaying more than 1 billion colors. However, the manufacturing technology still does not allow you to squeeze absolutely everything out of HDR — the presence of backlighting does not allow you to make the picture perfectly contrasting. But the IPS screen has maximum viewing angles. It also has the advantage of a response time of no more than 5 MS.

In Russian stores for this monitor ask around 32 thousand rubles. So, the South Korean manufacturer had to save on something. In this case, this is the screen refresh rate-it does not exceed 61 Hz. That is why even if you have support for FreeSync technology, the monitor is not called a gaming monitor. Everyone knows that any gamer with a powerful video card wants to see faster frame changes.

During its operation, the device consumes approximately 45 watts of electricity. This is an excellent result, especially if you think about the brightness of the backlight used here and the resolution of the matrix. Two HDMI 2.0 and one DisplayPort connectors are used to connect to your computer. Please note that there is no USB hub here — the manufacturer also saved money on this. There are also no speakers, although the 3.5 mm headphone output still remains.

Otherwise, this is a familiar monitor that belongs to the mid-budget segment. LG has used a height-adjustable stand here. The ability to rotate the monitor 90 degrees is unusual — portrait mode can be useful for people who are actively drawing or retouching photos. And on the back panel of the device there are traditional holes for wall mounting with a size of 100×100 mm. The monitor’s weight does not exceed 4.9 kg. Because of this, it seems that even drywall can withstand it (we do not recommend checking it).

Dignities

  • The screen has a 4K resolution;
  • Wall mounting is possible;
  • Implemented FreeSync support;
  • A large number of connectors for connecting a computer;
  • There is a headphone Jack available;
  • Good response time;
  • Displays 1 billion colors (HDR10);
  • The maximum viewing angle;
  • The stand allows you to adjust the height and rotate the monitor.

Disadvantages

  • Not the highest screen refresh rate;
  • The contrast ratio is only 1000: 1.

LG 24UD58

6 best LG monitors

This monitor turned out to be even more compact — it has a display at its disposal, the diagonal of which does not exceed 23.8 inches. Also, it is distinguished from the model discussed just above by a wider frame. And the stand here is more simplified — the buyer does not need to wait for either the possibility of turning the monitor or adjusting its height. But a lot of people don’t care. It is much more important for them that the IPS screen installed here is able to boast a full 4K resolution. This allows you to enjoy every photo. It also encourages you to get an action camera that can shoot 4K video. Or a high-quality quadcopter. However, the monitor boasts not only a resolution, but also maximum viewing angles. Players will also enjoy the 5ms response time. And this screen can display 1 billion colors. This means that any content that supports HDR10 will look great here. And if computer games with such a color palette require an incredibly expensive video card, then buying a game console will be relatively inexpensive. Connecting it together with a computer is not difficult, because on the back of the monitor there is a pair of HDMI 2.0 jacks and one DisplayPort. And there is also a headphone Jack.

Of course, it couldn’t be done without simplifications. Some people may not think the display is bright enough. And if you can argue with this, then you can’t deny the lack of contrast. It is because of this that the HDR effect will be felt worse than on any OLED TV. Also, not everyone will like the screen refresh rate of 61 Hz.

As mentioned above, the monitor can not be called huge. In this regard, its power consumption is only 35 watts. And surprise: the power supply here is hidden under the back cover! Because of this, the monitor can get quite hot at certain times, but you definitely shouldn’t worry about it.

Dignities

  • There is support for FreeSync;
  • A decent number of connectors;
  • 1 billion colors are displayed;
  • Low response time;
  • The maximum viewing angle;
  • The screen has a 4K resolution;
  • Implemented flicker-free illumination;
  • Can be hung on the wall;
  • There is a headphone output.

Disadvantages

  • Standard screen refresh rate;
  • Low contrast ratio;
  • The diagonal will seem insufficient to some.

LG 29UM69G

6 best LG monitors

The most affordable monitor among those whose screen can boast an aspect ratio of 21: 9. This alone makes the device gaming. Although we must admit that not every gamer wants to buy a monitor for 15 thousand rubles. Many players will feel some kind of trick, eventually settling on a more expensive model. So, what did the manufacturer save on?

First of all, you should note the display resolution. It is 1920×1080 pixels. If you have a GeForce 1080 Ti video card at your disposal, then this will definitely not seem enough. Well, if your computer does not have top — end components, then the above resolution will suit you perfectly-it will not make the graphics adapter strain too much.

Savings are also noticeable in a fairly wide frame. Admittedly, there are now a large number of LCD monitors with thinner bezels. Well, the matrix used here is standard, that is, 8-bit. This means that you will definitely not be able to view content with an HDR effect. Not everyone will like the number of connectors either — one HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2, and USB Type-C slot is used to receive images. Well, the last serious drawback can be considered an external power supply. However, for many people, it will be placed under the computer Desk, completely without interfering.

If this monitor is included in our rating, then it has a lot of advantages. Indeed, it is. When watching movies and other videos, enjoy the maximum viewing angles. But nothing else was expected, because LG Electronics has traditionally installed an IPS matrix here. The monitor also has a response time of 5 MS. A special technology allows you to increase the response in dynamic scenes up to 1 MS. This should appeal to absolutely any gamer.

The monitor turned out to be absolutely small — the diagonal of its display does not exceed 29 inches. In this regard, the power consumed by it is only 35 watts. And this is in the presence of 5-watt speakers here! To display the image here, the backlight is applied without flickering. The image itself is updated at a frequency of 75 Hz. To be honest, this is the most unexpected — usually budget monitors have a standard refresh rate.

The device has some other limitations. But there is no need to tell about them in all the details. The fact is that many of them can be guessed immediately after you learn that the IPS matrix is used here. In particular, the screen has a rather low contrast, which is due to the presence of a separate layer with backlight.

Interestingly, even such a relatively small monitor can be hung on the wall. For this purpose, a traditional 100 mm mount is used.

Dignities

  • There are stereo speakers available;
  • The maximum viewing angle;
  • Implemented flicker-free illumination;
  • High refresh rate;
  • Still, a sufficient number of connectors;
  • There is support for FreeSync technology;
  • Very low response time;
  • Low power consumption;
  • There is a 3.5 mm audio Jack;
  • Affordable price tag.

Disadvantages

  • An external power supply is used;
  • Low contrast ratio;
  • There is no support for HDR.

LG 25UM58

6 best LG monitors

Oddly enough, the cheapest monitor in our rating is also a large-format one. Its screen has an aspect ratio, and the resolution is 1920×1080 pixels. You can buy this model in Russian stores for only 10 thousand rubles. Of course, such a monitor could not fail to receive a number of serious simplifications. The most important one is the lack of DisplayPort. Therefore, only two HDMI 1.4 sockets should be used to connect a desktop computer and laptop. Also, the manufacturer did not endow its creation with stereo speakers, even the simplest ones. At the same time, the headphone Jack has not gone anywhere — that is, the audio coming via HDMI is still processed by the electronic part of the monitor.

The screen here is an IPS panel. Surprisingly, it has an increased refresh rate of up to 75 Hz. This will definitely be noticeable when running almost any computer game, especially if a powerful video card is hidden in the depths of the system unit. The response time here is 5 MS, which should also suit 99% of gamers. Please should also highlight, which does not have the effect of flickering. It is impossible to notice this, but your eyes will definitely tire less. And the screen installed here has maximum viewing angles — the picture is not distorted at all, no matter from which side you look at it.

The cost of the monitor is low, so the IPS screen didn’t get any improvements. As a result, the user is waiting for a standard contrast ratio of 1000:1. that is, black colors are not actually black here. But this is a problem for all monitors that include WLED illumination. There is also a limited number of colors — 16.7 million shades are displayed on the screen. This means that you won’t be able to view the HDR content.

The LG 25um58 monitor included in our rating turned out to be relatively small. It is possible that it was the 25-inch screen diagonal that influenced the fact that the manufacturer decided to provide its creation with an external power supply — there was simply no place for it under the back cover of a fairly thin monitor. And the small size also affected the power consumption, which in this case does not exceed 27 watts. Interestingly, even such a monitor can be hung on the wall — on its back panel there are holes for 75-mm mounting.

Dignities

  • Very low cost;
  • Very low power consumption;
  • There is a 3.5 mm audio Jack;
  • Short response time;
  • Refresh rate increased to 75 Hz;
  • The maximum viewing angle;
  • A wall mount is available.

Disadvantages

  • No support for extended color range;
  • Not a very large number of connectors for connection;
  • An external power supply is used;
  • Low contrast ratio;
  • There is no support for FreeSync.
