If you are one of those who think that 27 or at most 32 inches is the maximum you would use on a monitor, then this new LG Ultrafine OLED Pro it’s not for you. Because we are talking about a monstrous 65-inch screen. So, yes, maybe more than a monitor you should consider it a television. Of course it is not, because it lacks a tuner, although it does incorporates webOS in its version 5 as well as other functions such as PIP or PBP.

Until now, many users looked for the LG OLED CX that ideal screen to work on image issues that did not involve as high an investment as a professional monitor for such purposes. That must surely have given LG more of an idea, who has long proven that its OLED panels can be used for many things.
From there, and from the notable reduction in manufacturing costs, this new series of LG Ultrafine OLED Pro monitors was born. A proposal so varied in terms of diagonals that right now it is very attractive. Although, on this occasion, also for technical details such as the possibility of being calibrated using hardware devices such as CalMAN calibrators such as SuperSign WB.
A screen that will not be economical
The new monitor announced by LG yet has no release date or price. That means that we will have to wait to know these two important details for most of us, but we can tell you that it will not be an economical option. At least, it will not be with respect to the price that other options may have and that are technologically inferior in key sections.
However, for many professionals the investment in a screen of these characteristics is more than justified considering the prices in which other options move. And let’s not say monitors for color correction issues. So it will be a product for a specific audience, but it will almost certainly become a bestseller among them.
The rest of the users will have to continue looking at other alternatives, although there are very good monitors for video and photography editing. In addition, these have much more manageable and comfortable diagonals for day to day and most work desks.
