Also known by its model number (40WP95C-W) on many online stores, LG's UltraWide 5K2K display is fairly expensive, but it's bang-up-to-date with the latest Thunderbolt 4 connectivity. It also boasts a variety of display modes for people who want to work with two PCs at the same time.
As the name suggests, the 40-inch curved display - or 39.7-inches, to be precise - has an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio, with '5K2K' resolution of 5120x2160. That's ideal for working with multiple documents and windows on screen all at the same time. The display includes one Thunderbolt 4 connector, one DisplayPort and two HDMI connectors, so you've got plenty of options for connecting your PC.
Like many large monitors, the 5K2K display also allows you to connect two PCs at the same time, with a split-screen Picture-by-Picture mode that allows you to work with both PCs on screen at the same time. However, the 5K2K goes further than many of its rivals, with additional options for managing the screen layout. AS well as splitting the screen in half, you can designate a primary PC to occupy the 'main screen' with 16:9 aspect ratio, while the second PC occupies a smaller 5:9 'sub-screen.' You can also switch the main screen and sub-screen around if you need to take a closer look at one of your PCs. And, if you need even more screen space, there's a second Thunderbolt 4 port available that allows you to connect an additional display as well.
Throw in a set of built-in speakers, and two-port USB-A hub for your office accessories, and the UltraWide 5K2K is one of the most versatile wide-screen displays currently on offer.
