What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great monitor for the price I bought this monitor a few months ago and use it mostly for photo editing, working from home (IT Manager) and watching some videos. For the price the display is perfect. I hate going back to 1080p monitors at the office now. The stand is annoying on this one though and it looks like LG has released a new model that addresses this. Assuming they keep the same panel and just add a better stand it will become the perfect monitor for most people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Clear Window I bought this monitor back in December '16 to pair with a new PC. It is spectacular. Before I got this monitor i was happy with HD resolution. I didn't know what I was missing. Everything on this monitor is smooth, bright and brilliant. Using it really is like looking through a clean window at new worlds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing 4k Monitor I bought this 4K Monitor from Bestbuy while on sale and WOW what an Incredible Monitor. I was using a 24" 1080P Monitor and the difference is night and day. Colors just pop off the screen and I play my PC Games in 2K (as my GPU Sapphire R9 290X) can't handle 4K at a reasonable FPS. 2K looks Fantastic as well. Doom, Dark Souls 3, Gears 4, Skyrim etc, etc are so much better to play when they look this good. I have my PC attached via Display Port and my PS4 and Wii U via the 2 HDMI ports. I am extremely pleased with this product and will look into the LG 32" HDR10 monitor when it comes out. I will also be purchasing the 65" LG B6 this summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great monitor for the price My first 4K monitor and what an amazing difference it makes when viewing hi rez photos or videos. Only can give it 4 stars for average stand as other have said, but also for a power light that flashes non stop when the computer is off or on standby even with the light turnded off in setup. Tech supports says that's the way it's suppose to work! Only way to get the power light to stop flashing is to turn off the monitor manually.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice monitor for photo editing Bought monitor about a month ago for photo editing. I was finding the standard 1920x1080 monitors to have insufficient pixel pitch for editing 36 Mpix images. I purchased this for the larger UHD pixel pitch and the fact that it is an ips display along with being able to calibrate to a full 100% sRGB scale (at least per the spyder 4 elite and some old school tweeking with the custom levels), allowing editing along with viewing to be accurate & true (since I don't do a lot of printing getting an adobe RGB monitor was not really needed plus the fact it was another $1k). Online reviews are correct in the respect that the base is quite floppy in that the monitor does bounce around if the desk is moved but I have no concerns the monitor is going to just fall, just seems flimsy. I'm going to purchase a new mount that attaches to the wall to free up the space under the monitor taken by the base design. No usb or speakers, I don't find either to be a hindrance or a deal breaker as none of the monitors I have ever owned had either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 4K I actually run 2 of these monitors side by side, excellent detail. The only issue is a slightly different hue to total white, and scaling some programs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent screen, below average stand I am using this monitor for casual gaming, some photo editing and from my point of view the image is excellent in every scenario. Only four stars because the stand is cheap wobbling plastic, I had to buy a monitor arm to fix it properly.
Date published: 2017-01-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Buy I bought this during Cyber Monday deal from Best Buy. The monitor looks so much more crisp and sharp than my other 1080 monitor. I gave it 5 stars because the only complaint i have is the stand is a little wobbly. Other than that I'm more than happy with my purchase. Setup and install was easy, it comes with software that allows you to tweak settings you normally would with buttons.

Will this monitor be compatible for the xbox one s? Will it detect the 4k?

Asked by: Alex23vaz
Not very well I'm afraid. You can get 4k by enabling HDMI Ultra HD Deep Color on the monitor, but it causes the monitor to randomly blink.
