LG 27MU88-W overview

  • 1Description

Experience smooth 4K gaming with the 27MU88-W 27" 16:9 4K FreeSync IPS Monitor from LG. This display is built with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel, which delivers wide 178° viewing angles and vivid colors, and features a 3840 x 2160 resolution for crisp and clear content reproduction. Moreover, it supports FreeSync technology, which syncs the display's refresh rate with your graphics card's frame rate output to reduce screen tearing and stuttering. It also has a 350 cd/m² brightness rating, a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, and supports up to 1.07 billion colors for darker blacks and brighter bright colors. After connecting it to your system via HDMI, DisplayPort, or USB Type-C, you'll have access to additional USB ports as well as tilt, pivot, and height adjustments so you can arrange it to your viewing preference. Otherwise, you can use the 100 x 100mm VESA mounting holes on the back to install an alternate mount, stand, or arm.

Ultra HD 4K IPS Display
Experience Ultra HD 4K content with a 3840 x 2160 resolution, which is four times that of a standard Full HD screen. Furthermore, because it's built with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) display, you'll be able to enjoy wide viewing angles and immersive colors.
USB Type-C Port
The USB Type-C port replaces messy cables and power bricks with a single cable. USB Type-C allows for simultaneous 4K video output as well as data and power output when connected to a compatible laptop.
FreeSync Technology
Built-in FreeSync technology syncs the display's refresh rate with your graphics card's frame rate output to eliminate tearing and stuttering for a smoother gaming experience.
Black Stabilizer
Black Stabilizer provides you with better visibility in visually challenging scenes that are too bright or too dark. With it, you'll be able to spot enemies hiding in dark areas and recover faster from a flash bang attack.
Flicker Safe and Reader Mode
Over time, prolonged viewing can cause eye strain and fatigue. Flicker Safe and Reader Mode help maximize visual comfort by reducing the amount of blue light emitted and reducing the flicker level to almost zero.
Preset Customized Options
OnScreen Control lets you modify screen settings on your desktop without having to use physical buttons. My Display Presets offers customized picture modes for different applications and all settings are automatically applied so you don't have to adjust settings each time.
Total Color Management
Maintain the original color of the monitor through a calibrator (sold separately) and True Color Pro calibration software.
Additional Features
DDC/CI, HDCP Yes (2.2), Picture by Picture (PBP), Reader Mode, Six Axis Control, Factory Calibrated, H/W Calibration (True Color Pro), SUPER+ resolution, Marker, DICOM Mode, Quick Charge, and Dual Controller

    LG 27MU88-W reviews

    27MU88-W 27" 16:9 4K FreeSync IPS Monitor is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good! Bought two, threw one up on our tethered studio shooting rig, and one at my desk and am running it with the new MacBook Pro. It works very well so far and helps keep my desk and rig organized in this transition to USB-C. Setup was easy, and with a VESA 100x100 it mounts easily as well. The picture is sharp, USB ports work in the back, though sometimes I've had issues. Charging the laptop is sometimes slow, and if your laptop is not charging try reversing your cable, it is a tip that someone mentioned on the older model. Not sure why it works, but it does. On a moving tethered station the power brick can be frustrating. No major complaints so far though.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still Can't Get 4k when attached to iMac Pro Hi All Whilst B&H is an excellent provider of electronics after several months I have exhausted trying to get this monitor to display anything other than 1080 (HD). �mI bought it for 4K and no matter what input I use it's only HD not 4K. I have read, researched, re-installed the software only to get message like could not start. Would I buy LG again probably not. �I am classed as a geek so not solving this after all this time is disappointing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective Unit This unit would not connect to my MacBook Pro so I called LG for technical support and they determined it was defective and am waiting for a replacement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor! I purchased this monitor to use with my MacBook Pro (2016, 15 inch). The image is great, charging the laptop works great, love all that screen area. Overall I'm very satisfied, and plan to buy a second one in a couple months. There are a couple of minor points that people should know: 1. I initially tried to use the USB Type-C cable I got with the laptop to connect between the monitor and the computer. That didn't work. After panicking, I switched to the cable that was shipped with the monitor, which immediately worked. At that point, it popped up a message saying "Only use the cable shipped with the monitor to connect to the computer." Would have been nice to know that before. 2. I have my USB devices connected through the monitor, including a couple of backup drives. When the monitor goes to sleep, it shuts off power to its USB ports, shutting down the drives and resulting in a torrent of "you disconnected your drive improperly" warnings. I've changed the power save settings to not let the monitor go to sleep, but still looking for a better solution (preferably without a second cable).
