If you’re a content creator or developer looking to do more with a new kind of computer display, you’ll be happy to hear that LG’s DualUp monitor is finally available. Instead of the typical wide screen, this one is in portrait mode and is ultra tall.
LG’s DualUp monitor is essentially two 21.5-inch displays stacked and combined, giving you a tall display with a 16:18 aspect ratio and 2560 x 2880 resolution. Those who don’t have room for a screen ultrawide or dual-monitor setups can now enjoy the same kind of experience in less space.
It seems a bit wild at first, but I can certainly see the thinking behind its many usage scenarios. LG lists it as a 28-inch screen, but you actually get a lot more room to work with. The monitor comes with LG’s Ergo Stand with a variety of movements including height, pivot, tilt and swivel adjustments, not to mention it can be attached to most desks and tables and turn any surface into a workspace.
In terms of specs, the 28-inch 16:18 aspect ratio display (2560 x 2880) has all sorts of options. It uses an LG Nano IPS panel that covers 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut and supports HDR10. That said, it only includes 300 nits of brightness, which isn’t ideal.
For ports, LG’s DualUp includes two HDMI ports, DisplayPort, and can display two inputs at once. You’ll also get multiple USB-A 3.0 ports, USB-C with Power Delivery (90w), data transfer, a headphone jack, and two 7w speakers.
Unfortunately, it’s just a QHD panel rather than 4K, and you probably don’t want to mess around with its 60Hz refresh rate. Then again, this wasn’t built for gamers. Those interested can take the LG 28MQ780-B DualUp Display for $699 from LG or use the link below.
