This massive 42.5-inch monitor can display 4 inputs at once
If you love your multi-monitor setup, LG’s got a great new device for you.
The 4K device—labeled the LG 43UD79-B—measures an impressive 42.5 inches, larger than many televisions. LG previously also made a huge 38-inch ultra-wide monitor that the company claimed is the world’s largest.
The screen can be configured in a number of ways with different inputs, including a picture-in-picture mode.
The display features two HDMI 2.0 inputs, two HDMI 1.4 inputs, one USB Type-C port as well as a DisplayPort 1.2. The device also features a Dual Controller feature that can turn the monitor into a display for two separate computers.
The device features several features targeted at gamers, such as Game Mode and Black Stabilizer, but it probably won’t be a big a favorite among gamers due to the native 60Hz refresh rate, AnandTech notes. For professional multitaskers, the monitor can be a great solution to a clunky and cluttered multi-monitor display without compromising on the display surface area.
U.S.-based retailers are already offering pre-orders for $697 with a release date of May 9.
