LG UltraFine 32UN880-B: Do you work creatively and place the highest ergonomic demands on your workplace? Then the 32UN880-B from LG’s UltraFine series could be a suitable monitor. He writes off the conventional base and relies on a more innovative concept in which the panel is mounted on a swivel arm attached to the back of the tabletop with a clamp. This allows more flexible movements and adjustments to your sitting position than any regular stand. The panel itself is well equipped for graphic tasks and project work.

ViewSonic VP2768-4K: The VP2768-4K has everything you need to get to work as a photographer or professional video editor. Its UHD resolution of 27 inches ensures crisp content, with an extended color depth thanks to HDR10 support. The IPS panel with stable viewing angles covers 99% of the Adobe RGB color space and 96% of the DCI-P3 space, making the screen ideal for image processing. The ViewSonic is extremely flexible on the connection side: It offers HDMI, DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, and a versatile USB-C connection. The stand is flexible and can be adjusted in any conceivable direction – even upright operation (pivot) is possible. Thanks to X-Rite i1 Display Pro, you can calibrate the VP2768-4K on the hardware side.

LG UltraFine 32UN880-B- Thanks to the 4K resolution, the 32-inch model is razor-sharp and offers a large work surface on which you can confidently display two program windows side by side. Thanks to the IPS panel technology, the viewing angles are stable, and the color reproduction is strong. The LG covers 95 percent of the professional P3 color space. Unfortunately, LG does not specify the sRGB color space reproduction. Still, experience has shown that it should be at least 100 percent, which means that the screen is suitable for any photo and video editing.

Unfortunately, the panel lacks brightness, which means that real HDR is not achieved and you have to be content with the simple HDR10. The cherry on the cream cake is a high variety of interfaces led by a modern USB-C port. With a USB-C-enabled notebook, you can use this to connect the notebook and charge it simultaneously using the same cable. Two additional USB ports serve as hubs for peripheral devices. This saves space on the desk.

The ViewSonic VP2768-4K is currently not listed on the US market. The device has a 27″ IPS panel with a 4K resolution (3840×2160 pixels) but is primarily limited to the sRGB color space, which should cover 99%. Colors are processed internally using a 14-bit 3D LUT and are pre-calibrated at the factory with a precise Delta E < 2 for the highest color accuracy. The device can also be hardware calibrated.

For professional EBV users, image homogeneity in terms of brightness and color purity is particularly important. Otherwise, wrong decisions can easily be made when correcting the color of photos or videos. The ViewSonic VP2768-4K, therefore, has an integrated uniformity correction function, which is intended to ensure excellent image homogeneity from edge to edge and corner to corner.
