Product Overview

LG 27BL85U is a premium 4K IPS monitor with built-in USB hub designed for business users. It is suspiciously similar to the 27UN850 from the 2020 ("N") model year, despite being a business model ("B"). It was indeed unveiled around the same time in 2020, despite being a 2019 ("L") model year product.
Like the 27UN850, the 27BL85U uses a 10-bit IPS panel with 99% sRGB coverage. It supports VESA DisplayHDR 400 and can supply 60W of power via USB-C to connected devices. Also included is a monitor stand with height, pivot, and tilt adjustments.
The only notable difference between the two is the lower refresh rate of the business model, standing at 60Hz instead of 75Hz.
Given these facts, average consumers are surely better of with the 27UN850.
