When it comes to display solutions, there is truly no one-size-fits-all approach. Whether gaming, creating content, general editing, or simply surfing, internet users can have a specific preference. Factor in other details such as color accuracy, brightness, size, or PPI, and it can become a dizzying effort to pick the right display for your needs. We could probably write a lengthy, multi-page story on all the options available for current consumer-grade, or professional-grade, monitor technology. LG’s latest offering attempts to cross off more check marks on the ever-growing list of “wants” that a potential buyer may have for a fully featured display in 2020. Meet the LG 38WN95C-W.

This display does attempt to be the one-size-fits-all solution. It is large enough for work, while also incorporating many other entertainment-related features. A high refresh rate, coupled with variable refresh technology, and low response time, could entice more than a few people looking for a new gaming display. VRR is effective at 48 Hz to 144 Hz. At $1599.99, though, it could potentially be priced out of reach for many.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
