Product Overview

LG UltraWide 26WQ500 is an entry-level 26-inch UW-FHD ultra-wide monitor in LG's 2022 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit IPS-ADS panel that can get quite contrasty.
In terms of drawbacks, this monitor comes with limited adjustments and is not very bright. Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.
