While 4K PC monitors have been around for a long time now, there aren’t too many affordable 4K monitors out there. LG wants to change that with the launch of its entry-level 24-inch 4K monitor, the new 24UD58-B.
The 24UD58-B is a 23.8-inch 3840 x 2160 resolution 4K Ultra HD monitor with an IPS panel. The panel offers 10-bit (8bit + A-FRC) color support, 5ms response time, maximum brightness of up to 250 nits, 178/178 degree viewing angles, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 72% NTSC color gamut coverage, and an anti-glare 3H surface coating.
It has a native refresh rate of 60 HZ and supports AMD’s FreeSync variable refresh rate tech, which makes the monitor suitable for gamers as well. Being an IPS monitor, you can’t expect the 24UD58-B to deliver deep blacks, but it should still deliver a great gaming experience with great colors and wide viewing angles.
LG hasn’t clarified if it is using a non-PWM backlight, but it does list “Flicker Safe” under special features, along with active blue light reduction to lower eye strain. I/O options include 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.2, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The included stand has a detachable base but only offers tilt adjustment. Special features include Reader Mode, Six Axis Control, SUPER+ Resolution, Black Stabilizer, Dynamic Action Sync, optimized Game settings – Custom (Game), FPS & RTS modes, and PIP mode.
The LG 24UD58-B is currently on sale only in the US, where it can be purchased directly from LG and other retailers for $349.
