LG’s latest monitor is a big beast aimed at pro customers used to juggling multiple displays. It’s 42.5 inches wide, and has enough ports to show four screens at once from different sources. Oh, and it’s available for preorder for $697 (that price and these details via Anandtech), making it a decent deal to boot. Interested? Let’s dive in.

As mentioned above, this is a 4K IPS panel (catalog name: 43UD79-B), measuring 42.5 inches across the diagonal, with a UHD resolution of 3840 × 2160. It’s got a non-glare coating, a contrast ratio of up to 1000:1, and decent viewing angles of 178 degrees on both the horizontal and vertical. Peak brightness is 350 cd/m2, and LG says it supports up to 1.07 billion colors. The stand it comes with is basic, and only lets users adjust tilt, not height… More at The Verge.

Practicality considerations aside, that is an amazing price for a product like this. Would love to try one out.
