8 Reasons For
We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of PC screens to determine an average rating for each flatpanel monitor brand. On average LCD screens made by LG have good reviews from users and experts.
Has an Integrated Card Reader
Unlike most of the other large monitors that were released in the last 12 months which do not have an integrated card reader, the LG 49UH5B has an integrated card reader.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The LG 49UH5B has a built-in speaker. Most of the other LCD screens that were launched in the last 12 months also have a built-in speaker.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think cheaper LCD screens such as the iiyama LH4981S (£1,068.37), and the LG 55SL5B (£1,210.50) is also worth considering.
We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this flatpanel monitor and we think the iiyama LH5581S-B1 (£1,446.89) is also worth considering.
Quite High RMS Rated Audio Power
The LG 49UH5B has a quite high RMS rated audio power (20 Watts) compared to most of the other large monitors that came out around the same time as the 49UH5B. Similar spec PC monitors that have been around for around the same time as the 49UH5B have RMS rated audio powers of between 10W and 20W.
Fairly Bright Display Brightness
The average display brightness of comparable spec PC monitors that were released in the last year is 440 cd/m², and the display brightness range from 300 cd/m² to 500 cd/m². With a display brightness of 500 candellas per square meter, the LG 49UH5B has a fairly bright display brightness compared to most of the other large monitors that are a comparable age to the 49UH5B.
The lightest comparable spec PC screen that has been available for the last year is 9.8g weight, the heaviest is 81kg, and the average weight is 25kg. With a weight of only 13.3 kilograms, the LG 49UH5B is quite light compared to most of the other large monitors that are a comparable age to the 49UH5B.
+3 More reasons for
HD HD Type
This flatpanel monitor has a 4K Ultra HD HD type, which is typical of many large monitors that have been around for around the same time as it.
Large monitors that are a comparable age to the 49UH5B have depths of between 38mm and 900mm. At only 38 millimeters, the LG 49UH5B is fairly shallow compared to most of the other large monitors that are a comparable age to the 49UH5B.
4 Reasons Against
£190.81 Price Increase
In the last 55 days the price of the 49UH5B has increased by £190.81.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The LG 49UH5B does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other large monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 49UH5B also do not have a built-in camera.
Not 3D Compatible
Most recently released PC displays are not 3D compatible. The LG 49UH5B is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
Only One HDMI Port
Most similar spec flatpanel monitors that have been available for around the same time as the 49UH5B have between one and four HDMI ports, including the LG 49UH5B which has one HDMI port.

5 Other reasons to consider the LG 49UH5B
Running Costs Are OK
The efficiency rating of this large monitor is A, and the 49UH5B has an average running cost of £161 over 5 years based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 15 LCD screens that were launched in the last 12 months.
Released Eleven Months Ago
This large monitor has been on the market for eleven months.
LED Display Type
This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many new PC monitors.
We compared all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display to this LCD screen and we think the iiyama LH4281S-B1 (£867.22) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
+3 Other reasons
4000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
This PC screen has a 4000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which is typical of many recently released large monitors.
At 1,102 millimeter, the LG 49UH5B has a relatively typical width compared to most of the other new PC displays.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might want to consider the LG 55SL5B (£1,210.50) (1,238mm) which is also cheaper.
