- The LG DualUp 28MQ780-B has just one unusual specification, but it’s a doozy: a 28-inch, 16:18 aspect ratio display with 2560×2880 resolution, similar to cramming two standard 2560×1440 monitors on top of each other. Odds are you’ve never used a monitor like it.

That aside, the monitor is similar to other high-end productivity monitors with USB-C. It has an IPS panel with a 60Hz refresh rate and supports HDR. The USB-C power supports up to 90 watts of power—enough to charge many prosumer Windows laptops, and all current MacBook Pro models, while in use.
- The LG DualUp 28MQ780-B is an intriguing option in a sea of monitors that often more or less do the same thing. Its image quality is merely good, and it won’t even fit on small desks, but it offers unique value for anyone who works with content that’s as tall as it is wide. It’s also a great secondary monitor that’s easy to position and offers ample display space.Pricing also works to the DualUp’s advantage. Though not inexpensive, its pricing is similar to other professional displays. It doesn’t feel as if LG is using the monitor’s unique design as an excuse to inflate the price.This monitor is not for everyone—but if you work in certain aspect ratios, or you want an amazing second monitor, snag this display while you can. There’s no guarantee it will receive a sequel
