New LG Display Pulls Double Duty for Work and Personal Purposes

If you’ve been looking for a 4K display, but can’t decide if it’s for personal use or your home office, the LG Smart Monitor (32SQ780S) may be the solution. This 31.5-inch screen delivers the best of both worlds.

This display features a desk-mounting, height-adjustable Ergo Stand that lets you put your monitor exactly where you want it. It also supports LG’s Bluetooth Magic remote (sold separately), so you can use it like a smart TV. In fact, since the monitor runs on webOS, it functions just like LG’s other smart TVs. That means that you can install all your favorite streaming apps, like Netflix. So, once you’re done working for the day, you can switch over to your favorite smart TV apps for an evening of binge-watching.

This smart display comes equipped with full connectivity options. That includes two HDMI ports, a power-delivering USB-C terminal, three USB-A ports, and an Ethernet connection. So, you won’t have any problems connecting your peripherals to it.

The device also supports Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. So you can stream whatever you like from your iOS devices and integrate the device into your Apple smart home experience.

If this idea sounds familiar, it’s because Samsung also sells a Smart Monitor. Like the LG Smart Monitor, the Samsung Smart Monitor doubles as a TV and has a ton of connectivity options.

No matter what you want to use it for, the LG Smart Monitor (32SQ780S) is an excellent choice for a display. While the price tag is up there ($500), you can use it for work, play, and everything else you use a monitor for.
