Product Expert monitors

The LG 27UL850 is a 27-inch monitor with 4K resolution on which you can edit photos, watch movies, and play games. You experience colors very vividly and realistically thanks to the DisplayHDR 400 support and the 99% sRGB color range. This way, you get to enjoy the smallest details of your holiday snapshots and favorite movies. If you play games, the FreeSync technology ensures smooth moving images. You can also connect a Playstation to enjoy games in 4K, for example. The 27UL850 is height-adjustable, so you can adjust it to your sitting height. This way, you're always comfortably in front of the monitor without straining your neck or shoulders. With the USB-C connector, you can connect devices such as a MacBook and charge peripherals.

Note: As a result of 4K resolution, text and icons become smaller, which you can't always enlarge. For a 4k output, you need a modern laptop or PC with a fairly powerful video card. Make sure it has at least a DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0, or Thunderbolt 2 connection.
