Product information: 31MU97 31" 4096x2160 IPS True 4K 60Hz Professional WideScreen LED Monitor - BlackWhen most consumers refer to ‘4K’, they’re actually referring to the UHD (Ultra High Definition) resolution of 3840 x 2160. This is, after all, the most common ‘4K’ resolution. It also maintains the common 16:9 aspect ratio and provides quite an enjoyable experience. The LG 31MU97 features a 4096 x 2160 resolution which is also referred to as ‘Digital Cinema 4K’ due to its use as the dominant 4K resolution by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiatives). The monitor features LG’s robust ‘business-like’ stand which offers tilt and height adjustment but can’t be pivoted or swivelled.
This display uses a 31” AH-IPS panel (LM310UH1-SLA1) with a 4096 x 2160 resolution (17:9 aspect ratio) and 60Hz refresh rate. This features a very light matte (‘semi-glossy’) screen surface and is designed to provide accurate and consistent colours in both the sRGB and Adobe RGB colour spaces. It uses a flicker-free (‘Flicker Safe’ – PWM free) GB-LED backlight to provide this wide colour gamut (100% sRGB and over 99% Adobe RGB). The monitor is also factory calibrated for both of these colour spaces and features true 10-bit colour reproduction. It can be user-calibrated with the ‘LG True Color Pro’ software as well. ‘Reader’ modes also feature, which are ‘Low Blue Light’ settings allowing the user to select white point targets such as 3882K, 4300K or 4616K to cut down on the blue light emission.
The monitor features a wide range of ports, including; DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, 2 HDMI ports, 3 USB 3.0 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The native resolution is supported at 60Hz over DP or MiniDP but only at 30Hz over HDMI. 5W stereo Maxx Audio speakers also feature, which seems to be a favourite on higher-end LGs at the moment. The included stand can be removed to reveal 100 x 100mm VESA holes.
