LG Unveils 43UN700 Monitor: 42.5-Inch 4K w/ HDR10 for Work & Gaming

When LG introduced its 43UD79 monitor over two years ago, it quickly gained popularity both among gamers and among office workers mainly due to its combination of size, connectivity options, and image quality. Now the tTime has come to improve the product, and to that end LG has unveiled its successor, the 43UN700. The new display is positioned both for work and mainstream gaming; it adds support for HDR10, higher brightness levels, and features 60 W USB-C power delivery.

The LG 43UN700 uses the same chassis with a tilt-adjustable stand as its predecessor, and visually the two products are indistinctive. Meanwhile, the latest one comes with a new 42.5-inch IPS panel that features a 3840×2160 resolution, 400 nits typical brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 178°/178° horizontal/vertical viewing angles, a 60 Hz refresh rate, and an 8 ms GtG response time. The new display is about 14% brighter than its predecessor (400 nits vs 350 nits previously) and LG also equipped the monitor with a scaler that supports HDR10 transport, though the LCD has not been certified for any VESA DisplayHDR tier. As for color gamut, the 43UN700 can display 72% of the NTSC (CIE1931) color space, which roughly corresponds with 99% of the sRGB gamut. And, being a high-end LG monitor, the display is shipped factory calibrated.

Moving on to connectivity, as this is where the LG 43UN700 truly shines with its one DisplayPort 1.2 input, two HDMI 2.0 inputs, two HDMI 1.4 inputs, and one USB Type-C with DP Alt Mode input. The latter supports 60 W Power Delivery back to the host, which is enough to fully power most 13.3-inch notebooks and top off bigger laptops. Furthermore, the monitor has a dual-port USB 3.0 hub and a headphone output.

With this many display inputs, the monitor fully supports 2- or 4-way Picture-by-Picture and Picture-in-Picture capabilities, which will certainly be useful for those with multiple PCs and other devices. For added convenience, PbP, PiP and other things can be controlled using a special remote.

When it comes to gaming, LG’s giant LCD supports the company’s Dynamic Action technology, which reduces input lag by eliminating certain image processing stages as well as the Black Stabilizer capability that adjusts brightness of dark parts of a scene. As an added bonus, the 43UN700 has two 10 W ‘Rich Bass’ speakers.

It is necessary to note that LG no longer advertises FreeSync and KVM features either with the 43UD79 or with the new 43UN700, possibly because the former supported so narrow FreeSync range that it did not make any real differece, whereas the KVM capability required software.
