Performance

Design

The LG 24-inch monitor comes with a minimalistic design and a great-looking stand. It features a flat panel with slim bezels all around. Unlike it’s sister version, the LG 24M47VQ, which has large bezels and makes the LG UltraFine 24MD4KL monitor superior in that aspect. The monitor offers a total of three USB C connections, and two Thunderbolt 3 inputs, along with support for 85W power transmission. The inputs are available at the rear of the monitor. The included stand offers height and tilt adjustments, but you can also wall mount this monitor thanks to VESA mount support.

The LG 27UK850-W IPS LED 4K Monitor is also good value for money.
