LG IPS5 Series displays promise super-accurate color

LG has launched a new range of LCD display, the IPS5 series, and as the name suggest the four-strong line-up each uses an IPS panel rather than cheaper TN. Available in 21.5- and 23-inch sizes, all supporting Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution and 250 cd/m2 brightness, the IPS5 range is pre-calibrated by imaging experts who even include a report on the monitor's tuning in the box.

That, LG reckons, is enough to ensure that "onscreen colors are identical to real-life colors" with color temperatures of around 6,500K. Viewing angles are also improved, as we've seen on other IPS implementations, while there's a dynamic contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1.

LG will also offer a so-called Dual Package feature, which will supposedly make setting up a second display more straightforward, including spreading the Windows task bar across both monitors. The IPS5P throws in a height-adjustable, posable stand too. No word on pricing at this stage, but the IPS5 series will go on sale this month and the IPS5P will arrive in November.
