LG Announces 42.5-inch Work and Gaming Monitor

LG has announced its new 43UN700, a 42.5-inch IPS display at 3840×2160. LGs product page lists the monitor for “mixed usage”, stating that the large size with viewing angles is great for working with colleague to increase efficiency, while the high-resolution display ensure more overwhelming and realistic gaming experiences.

The 43UN700 is supposedly a successor to the widely successful 43UD79 and both monitors run very similar specs apart from the new model having 400cd/m2 brightness, and two 10W Rich Bass speakers. Aside from that, the monitor still has a 60 Hz refresh rate and an 8ms GtG response time.

Another major difference between the two is connectivity, where the 43UN700 sports a DisplayPort, four HDMI ports (2x 2.0 and 2x 1.4) and a single USB Type-C input. This allows the monitor to support Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture modes, both controllable with a remote.

Finally, the new monitor has HDR10 support, and LGs own Dynamic Action Sync and Black Stabilizer. The monitor is, for now, only available in Japan and is coming in at a cheaper price point than its predecessor, with no date announced yet for US and EU.
