Earlier today LG Electronics announced that the new LG 4K ULTRA HD monitor (model 27MU67) will become available for the first time in the United States later this month, and it has quite a tempting price-point.

The 27-inch class monitor (26.3-inches diagonally), is designed to provide, “a premium gaming experience,” according to the company, which confirmed the pricing and availability earlier today. The device will offer a 3840 x 2160 screen resolution, and of course be compatible with 4K content.

The monitor supports AMD’s FreeSync technology with a refresh range of 40 – 60Hz. LG stated earlier that FreeSync, “eliminates image-tearing and stuttering, which occurs when the monitor and graphics card are out of sync. The result is a smooth and seamless gaming experience, with fluid motion and no loss of frame rate.”

The monitor will also offer LG’s Black Stabilizer and the Flicker Safe function which lowers the risk of eye fatigue during marathon gaming or work sessions. The 16:9 aspect ratio monitor is capable of displaying over 99% of the sRGB spectrum and will feature both factory calibration and factory presets. The monitor is also equipped with HDMI 2.0 input to support 4K resolution at 60Hz.

“LG is known for delivering advanced TV display technology and our latest monitor lineup brings that same display expertise to smaller screen sizes,” said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. “Our new 4K ULTRA HD Monitor delivers advanced features like sharp picture quality, high field of view and less input lag to a growing number of professional and recreational gamers.”
