LG UltraFine OLED Pro 65EP5G: A gigantic professional monitor with an astronomical price
LG has announced the UltraFine OLED Pro 65EP5G, a 65-inch OLED monitor designed for professionals. Previously, the UltraFine OLED Pro series topped out at a 32-inch panel, but the 65EP5G goes way beyond this. It seems that LG unveiled the 65-inch monitor in Spain first, with its German subdivision announcing the 65EP5G today.
The 65EP5G operates natively at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio and with DisplayHDR 400 True Black certification. LG states that it factory calibrates the monitor, which should cover 98.5% of the DCI-P3 colour space and 120% of BT709. Supposedly, the 65EP5G peaks at 1,000 nits, although only 185 nits may be its peak luminoisty across the whole panel. 0.1 ms GtG response times are present, too.
Additionally, LG has equipped the monitor with numerous ports, including dual HDMI 2.1 connections. Presumably, this means that the 65EP5G operates at up to 120 Hz; LG has not provided a refresh rate in any of its promotional material. Strangely, the monitor runs webOS 5.0, an OS that LG has since replaced with webOS 6.0.
LG does not list a price for the 65EP5G on its website. Instead, it requests people to send it an 'inquiry for [a] commercial display. However, the monitor is available through third-party retailers, where it costs over £9,600 including VAT. For context, LG's 32-inch UltraFine OLED Pro monitor retails for US$3,999, making the 65EP5G roughly 2.7x more expensive, excluding taxes.
