LG has announced two new ranges of PC monitors that are flicker-free for better viewing comfort. The new MP76 and MP75 IPS-based monitor series also feature LG’s Cinema design with slim bezels.
LG’s flicker-free monitors
Eizo and BenQ have both been pushing for flicker-free monitors for some time, as conventional monitors can cause eyestrain and headaches. LG is acknowledging the issue, too, and will start selling “flicker-safe” monitors soon with the MP76 and MP75 models.
MP76 is the more expensive of the two and has a thin-bezel “Cinema Screen” design, an IPS panel, 1920x1080 pixel resolution, sRGB color gamut, 5 ms (g2g) response time, and a reader mode that can be initiated while reading for improved comfort. The MP76 will be available in 24 inches initially, called 24MP76HM. It can be connected to a PC via 2xHDMI or D-SUB (VGA).
LG will also launch a cheaper variant called MP75 in 23 and 27 inch versions (23MP75HM and 27MP75HM). These models come in a similar “Cinema Screen” design, albeit with slightly thicker bezels. The MP75 models are based on Full HD IPS panels, too, and also feature the flicker-safe LED backlight. The same choice of input ports is available.
No information has been announced regarding price or launch date by LG.
