LG Electronics recently introduced its new LED IPS6 monitor to South Africa. The monitor combines IPS and LED technologies and boasts “exceptionally real colour, high uniformity of brightness and truly dazzling picture quality.”

LG has been a leader in the IPS (In Plane Switching) field for a number of years, and its new monitors are now able to enjoy the benefits of both IPS and LED. LG says that the convergence enables the IPS6 monitor to deliver advanced picture quality without any colour shift alongside a wider viewing angle.

IPS technology also has the ability to reduce eye fatigue, making it popular with users who spend much of their time in front of a display (a.k.a, all of us). The IPS6 series has a low response time difference which helps reducing fatigue, while its wide viewing angle makes it a good choice for video editing and gaming as well.

The IPS6 is also quite the looker, with a transparent neck and wine glass shape alongside its overall slimness. The new monitors are also highly energy efficient, thanks to a 27% drop in energy usage compared to older models. This has earned the series EnergyStar Certification.

The new LG IPS6 monitors will be available by the end of March at all good electronic retailers. The IPS236V will retail for a recommended R1999 while the IPS226V will retail for R1899.
