LG UltraFine Display OLED Pro
LG is one of the most important manufacturers in the world in everything related to displays. Not only does it have televisions that are a real delight in terms of image quality, but also monitors that offer everything that many users need in their day to day and regardless of whether they are leisure or professional activities.
For the latter, he presented in January of this year and taking advantage of a particular CES in Las Vegas due to the pandemic, a monitor for professional users that attracted the attention of many due to the use of an OLED panel. Something that we will not say that there was not already, but it is true that it is unusual. The normal are screens with LCD LED technology.
Available in two screen diagonals, the LG UltraFine Display OLED Pro It is a screen that with its 27 and 31.5 inches offers image quality at 4K resolution where logically the most striking thing will be its ability to reproduce colors and blacks that will delight colorists, photographers and any other user who is interested in enjoying the best representation.
To all this we must add the Thunderbolt connectivity that it offers and of which it is not necessary to remember again that it allows, by simply connecting a single cable to a compatible equipment with the same connection, to be able to enjoy aspects such as load at 90W power supply or the integrated HUB on its back and where other accessories such as external hard drives, printers, microphones, etc. could be connected.
The price of high technology
Knowing the screen already and knowing that the quality it will offer will be the best in the market, it is logical to think that it will not be cheap to get one. And yes, it is true, but everything will depend on how it looks.
The 27-inch model of the UltraFine Display OLED Pro will be priced at $ 2,999 (about 2,600 euros approximately), while the 31.5-inch model would go to the $ 3,999 (3,500 euros approx).
Too much difference between the two models for so little in a matter of diagonal? Well, yes, they are almost a thousand euros and the difference between working with a 27-inch screen to another of 31.5 inches may not be such a sharp jump, since both have the same resolution. But that will be something that everyone will have to value.
An alternative to the Apple Pro Display XDR
The most interesting thing about this new LG UltraFine Display OLED Pro is that it is positioned as an alternative to the Apple Pro Display XDR that will cost half and that is great news. Which is not without some grace, because spending at least 2,600 euros is not something that everyone does and even less for a computer monitor, but the Apple proposal goes to 5,500 euros without a stand.
It is true that later we could enter to assess issues such as design, maximum brightness levels or other differences that cause the use of different panel technologies as well as the resolution that logically in Apple’s proposal is higher, 6K compared to 4K.
Even so, according to the needs of each one, the truth is that the new LG screen is a great alternative capable of displaying HDR content and you can buy it now. But be patient, because it seems that delivery times are somewhat slow.
