LG is a brand that we can always trust when it comes to smart appliances. Forget about smartphones because the company has discontinued that direction. But then, the South Korean tech giant has maintained its lead in the smart TV arena.
LG has plenty of TVs to offer, but one remarkable model is a 4K monitor that is ideal for watching movies and gaming. That is one ultimate entertainment TV as its size alone is enough to make an impression. As part of the LG UltraGear Gaming Monitor Series, the 48-inch OLED model has several features like the Nano IPS with ATW Polarizer Technology and a 260Hz refresh rate.
Most smart TVs could probably be used for gaming, but they can still be improved. So LG wants to make a difference by creating an optimized version for gaming. Specifically, the LG UltraGear 48GQ900 comes with a V-shaped foot, so the screen is elevated.
The LG UltraGear 48GQ900 has built-in 20W stereo speakers, a 3.5mm four-pole headset jack, and a two-port USB 3.0 hub. It comes with a remote control that may be used for gaming. The remote control features a Game Mode toggle and more buttons for power, mute, video inputs, and audio outputs. Expect the standard headset jack, but it is also powerful enough to support DTS Headphone X technology.
Like most premium gaming monitors in the market today, the LG UltraGear 48GQ900 can show an FPS counter and an on-screen crosshair. In addition, it comes equipped with a host of gaming and connectivity features to satisfy every gamer. The 48GQ900 is the biggest LG UltraGear model. Of course, there are also the 32GQ850 and the 32GQ950 models, but those two come with a 4K Nano IPS display.
The 48-inch gaming display is huge and is the first in the OLED gaming monitor category from LG. Its big form still shows sleek aesthetics with the angular stands. Moreover, LG added a new Hexagon Lighting for better gaming effects. There’s HDMI 2.1 connectivity which means the latest gaming consoles and 4K PC gaming can be supported. We can also expect variable refresh rate (VRR) support and a very quick response time.
The LG UltraGear 48GQ900 features a 48-inch 4K display, making it a gaming powerhouse. It offers a 0.1ms response time and a 120Hz (O/C 138Hz) refresh rate, plus a fully-borderless design. Color accuracy is impeccable, so no wonder it’s been recognized by the Red Dot and iF Design Award. Add to that; the TV offers the brand’s anti-glare low reflection (AGLR) coating. This reduces those visual distractions that may come up during gameplay.
LG Electronics Business Solutions’ SVP and head of the IT business unit, Seo Young-jae, said the TV is “ideal for both PC and console gaming.” He added, “the new monitors offer features and capabilities that take the entire gaming experience to the next level. We will continue to solidify the UltraGear brand’s strong reputation with innovative products that put the needs of gamers first.” The new LG UltraGear gaming monitor series will be released in Japan, North America, Europe, and Asia. Japan will get the products before this month ends.
