LG Teases 31-inch 4K monitor for CES in January

LG today unveiled its first 4K monitor ahead of CES 2014 this coming January. Dubbed the 31MU95, the monitor is a 31-inch panel with a 4,096 x 2,160 resolution at a 16:9 aspect ratio. It also boasts sport for Thunderbolt 2.

The 31MU95 is joined by the 27MB85, LG's 27-inch Color Prime Model, as well as the UltraWide UM95 (available in 34- and 29-inch models) and the UltraWide UM65 (25-, 29-, and 34-inch models).

"LG IPS 21:9 UltraWide series was originally developed as user-centric PC monitors to enhance the computing experience, for both work and play," said Hyoung-sei Park, head of LG's IT Business Division. "Our 21:9 aspect ratio monitors has proven to be a critical and commercial success and we forecast this market will continue to grow."

The UM95 supports Thunderbolt 2.0, and True Color Finder calibration software, while the UM65 is a 'leaner' lower cost option. Both will be on display alongside the 31MU95 at CES in just a couple of weeks. Stay tuned for hands on photos!

    Looking forward to the day 20 inch 8k screens become standard.
    Maybe then we'll be able to enjoy alias-free games (assuming they run at native resolution) without having to use AA?

    Well, when I said "become standard", I was thinking about ~200$.
    Do mainstream screens really have to be that much more expensive?

    Mainstream? No, certainly not, but I just picked up a PB287Q for 500$ and its well worth it imo, when 4k is available for those prices I'll look into it, till then its not even worthy of time unless its for people who need the screen real(business) estate or those with more money than sense

    I release this is newer tech, but seriously 1080p has been standard for the last what 5-10 years they had plenty of time to increase resolution size in that time period.

    These monitors should all ready be priced in the $200 range frankly especially considering the price fixing the LCD monitor makers were found guilty of consumers got scroogled and trust me many of us haven't forgotten these can't be that much more expensive and difficult to manufacturer.

  • 4096x2160 is not 16:9, it's 1.9:1. To get 1.78:1 (16:9) you would need narrower resolution, 3840x2160.
