The boundaries between home entertainment displays are steadily fading away, with computer monitors on desks making significant strides to match the size advantage of TVs. The convergence of functionalities between these two devices, particularly in supporting diverse input sources, both wired and wireless, is noteworthy. Smart TVs have essentially transformed into expansive computer monitors, seamlessly accommodating desktops, laptops, and handheld devices. LG’s latest lineup of smart monitors is now challenging the status quo by incorporating these shared features, providing computer users with a seamless transition between work and play, all while maintaining distinct environments.
Crafted by LG, the 2024 MyView series introduces 31.5-inch 4K monitors. While their 5ms response time and 60Hz refresh rate may not fully appease PC gamers, they offer content creators satisfaction with DCI-P3 95% color gamut support and adjustable stands for enhanced ergonomic comfort. While these specifications may seem standard, the real game-changer lies in the fact that these monitors run on webOS, effectively transforming them into 32-inch smart TVs. This integration grants users access to various streaming services and applications like Microsoft 365 and Google Calendar, even without being connected to a computer. Despite the likelihood of users having a computer attached, this independent mode provides a distraction-free space for watching videos without being interrupted by computer notifications.
The 2024 LG MyView lineup, priced at $599.99, introduces a unique proposition that might initially appear niche. The potential drawback of encouraging prolonged desk sessions is acknowledged, but LG’s foray into this space suggests a growing trend. As the market evolves, it could only be a matter of time before all computer monitors seamlessly transition into smart computer monitors, offering users a multifaceted and integrated experience.
