LG has introduced a new monitor, known as the "Ergo". This is due to its new kind of "C-Clamp"-enabled stand that confers a full range of motion on the 27-inch panel. It also has USB type C with 60 watt (W) Power Delivery, so as to enable 1-cable operation with this display.

LG has unveiled a new IPS monitor it calls the "Ergo" (also known as the 27QN880-B). This is due to its novel stand with a C-Clamp attachment. The OEM claims it allows the new display to tilt, pivot, swivel, and be generally adjustable in terms of height and viewing position. 

It also has a 178-degree viewing angle, a 75 hertz (Hz) refresh rate and a 5 millisecond (ms) gray-to-gray (GtG) response time. This new 27-inch device also has a lot in common with the latest UltraGear monitor of the same dimensions: they both feature AMD Radeon FreeSync, HDR10 and 99% of the sRGB color-space.

However, the Ergo has a 2560x1440 resolution, whereas the UltraGear is FHD. The older gaming-focused model also has NVIDIA G-Sync. However, what the 27QN880-B does have instead is a type-C port that supports 60W Power Delivery.

Therefore, the user could conceivably work with it using just 1 wire; then again, the Ergo does also offer 2 HDMI ports, a DisplayPort and dual downstream USBs. Accordingly, LG may be pitching this new monitor at content-creators.

The OEM is currently selling the 27-inch QHD Ergo as a webstore exclusive on its US site, on which it costs US$450. However, it should also start appearing as a retail product from July 1, 2020.
