IPS Display with Adobe RGB over 99.5%

IPS Display with Adobe RGB over 99.5%

By supporting Adobe RGB over 99.5% on the IPS Display, the 31MU97 minimizes colour difference and colour loss with the wide colour gamut and colour temperature that covers both the sRGB and CMYK colour range. As a result, one can effortlessly retouch and image photos to create final products with vivid and vibrant colours that VA or other LCD panels cannot deliver.

10-Bit Colour Depth (1 billion colour)

10-bit colour depth that supports over 1-billion colours is 64 times richer than an 8-bit colour display, re-creating colours softly and naturally without colour banding. Now, all the details are right before you with the richer and wider colour range that enables accurate, detailed, and natural-looking images. Also, with smoother transition in gradients, the more shades in between let you work with images in more detail.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good budget 4K monitor Good stable flicker free 4K @ 60Hrz through HDMI and Display ports. I like this monitor and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a 4K monitor. I use it for Video and Photo works and generally happy with it. Comes with a good stand. Only down sides are ... …sleep mode sometimes doesn't display the picture when the PC is woken. …soft touch controls are fiddly, I returned an IIyama 4K monitor for the same reason, but this is little better. Could've been better if couple of USB3 port were on it. No DVI port Its not a premium looking, a little less stylish, but I dont care. 27 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good 4K with horrible ergonomics Fantastic monitor with very bad OSD/menu system. Display is not able to show DOS boot information (HP Z840 worstation, mini DP connection). After DOS boot jump right in high res without problems. But everything running on screen during boot is not possible to display. Almost every attempt to enter menu and change something ends with display off as the logic of the OSD is horrible. OSD is not possible to even show the exact model number of the screen. Win7 + Titan is unable to put the display in sleep mode. 07 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent quality screen I deliberated over which 4K screen to purchase for use with my Mac Pro (Late 2013). I was encouraged by LG's support specifically for the Mac Pro which is noticeably absent from other manufacturer's displays. Apple introduced improvements with OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 that means that the full native resolution (and scaled resolutions) achieve 60Hz out of the box. Ignore any reviews (and even at the time of writing the LG website itself). You're no longer restricted to 50Hz, that's old news! The true 4K width isn't essential for me, but is very nice. I came from a 30 inch display and the height of this screen matches my old 30" so I feel I've gained extra horizontal space and kept the same height. Any comparisons with my old display end there, however, as the depth of colour offered by the LG and the clarity of text on screen is amazing (I'm running at one of OS X's scaled resolutions). Overall I'm really happy with my purchase and would happily recommend the LG 31MU97 to anyone with a "trash can" Mac Pro looking to go 4K. 21 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Buggy firmware but lovely picture. I use this for testing 4K signage. It does the trick, it does portrait and it has 2 HDMI inputs and 2 DP (one mini). However, changing inputs is PAINFUL, if you never change input, well and good, but that nubbin thing is the worst idea yet. It also has an interesting feature. Boot connected to DP when the monitor is on HDMI and... no signal. Unplug the cable, plug it back in and it works. (Aside, LG won't let you register as owning one of these! Their search won't find it either. A real dark horse.) 04 February 2015
