              Any real-life reviews on that LG? Looks like the perfect diag monitor.

                    I guess if you’re spending Monopoly money then $3500 is fine. But there are a million “consumer grade” monitors with similar specs for significantly less than $1000.

                    For example the Asus Professional – Grade ProArt PA328Q is $900. The only difference that I can tell is the Asus has a brightness of 350 as opposed to 450 with the above LG.

                      Internal calibration with integrated software, auto luminance, dual controller so your PACS will treat it as a side-by-side and your hanging protocols won’t get jacked up, FDA approved (not sure this is a big deal as far as quality is concerned, but I always wonder if a lawyer could make a big deal about a miss occurring on a “consumer-grade” monitor).  Anyways, probably not worth an extra $2-3k, but I gotta spend on something and can use the other input for my personal computer and WAY less than other diagnostic monitors like Barco.

                      Buy an actual NEC / Barco / Other professional grade monitor.  
                       
                      Why do they cost so much?
                      They’re worth it

                      Medical grade monitors worth it what? Cheap Dell does just as good a job, save your money.

                      Barcos are nice – I use mdcc-6430 in the VA system. Bought a used mdcc-6130 for work on the side – it’s dated but is a good monitor. If I were looking to buy again I would look at a used version of mdcc-6430.
                       
                      i hope someone posts a review of LG 32HL512D on AM when they’ve had a chance to use it. the price point is very appealing for the features it packs. if it’s as good as it appears it might be worth paying that extra amount over a used barco.
                       
                      You don’t always get what you pay for but as a rad a professional grade monitor is the way to go, IMHO. Of course AM is riddled with posts about this debate. I imagine professional photographers have their own little equipment debate:).

                      Is there any way to get split screen so a regular 32″ monitor can act as two?

                      I am wondering if you can do that on a regular LG and not the higher end medical display that was linked earlier in this thread.

                  You can use your CME money for this?  Nice.  I don’t see why not, but our group doesn’t allow that.  Not sure why, maybe because it’s not technically CME.

      The spec says Displayport for input. I have to drive this from a macbook Pro which has the Thunderbolt 3 outputs. Does anyone here have experience driving this display from a macbook. Do you use a thunderbolt –> DP adapter ?

        Exactly, I have a 2-3 year old 13 inch Macbook Pro which only has USB-c ports. I use this cable; [link=https://www.apple.com/shop/product/HLR62ZM/A/moshi-usb-c-to-displayport-cable]https://www.apple.com/sho…c-to-displayport-cable[/link]
        The  computer runs very hot and at times a bit sluggish if I am trying to run a  windows VM with PACS plus citrix for Epic. The only hang up I have gotten is when I try to run PACS on 2 monitors (1 diagnostic and one regular for the work list).

          Got one of the UL950s. Running a big VM with Epic, citrix + PACS trying to drive the 4k monitor is pushing my macbook to the melting point. 100% CPU usage throughout. I also have a weird problem with the mouse pointer pushing buttons lateral to their true position. This still requires some optimization.

            Well, the nice UPS man dropped off a new macbook Pro. The old one had difficulty keeping up with the size of the ever growing W10 virtuals. At least I now have enough memory and horsepower to run multiple virtuals at the same time. Yet it turns out that the heat issue is not related to insufficient resources on the old machine. It’s just a limitation inherent to the macbook. You can fry eggs on the thing while the 4k monitor is attached.

              Can you attach any screen to a web pacs and therefore just use your laptop with a reasonable HDMI connected screen to view the images, dictate on the windows platform/laptop?

                The second you attach an external monitor, the macbook switches from the chip internal graphics card to a separate radeon card. Depending on the resolution you run on that external monitor, the separate graphics controller runs hot.
                Apparently this horse-dung design is an apple feature and the answer you get when you complain is: ‘tough luck, it is what it is, learn to love it’.

                  Doubt it is Apples fault, modern GPUs dissipate a ton of heat, and a laptop is compact, its just physics (and probably poorly optimized software). Sounds like you could solve the issue going to an external GPU via the Thunderbolt port.

                    Yes, same thing on the new Dell XPS 17. You can toggle that option in the BIOS, however, whenever the dedicated NVIDIA GPU is on, the fans will spin with no way to stop them, even if the GPU is not under load.

                      So, I played around a bit with my new toys.
                       
                      A LG32UL950W and a new 16in Macbook Pro with 64G ram and the mid-range graphics card. I use this to run multiple different VMs for the different incompatible enterprise IT environments we interface with. I use the macbook monitor for worklist and dictation and the LG for the display.
                       
                      A few things:
                      – while the monitor has two Thunderbolt3 ports, you can’t drive it with two TB3 inputs in a side-side mode. Its actually one TB3 in and a ‘out’ so you can daisy-chain other TB devices. There is a matrix in the user manual of what the two side-by-side inputs can be, and it comes down to ‘not of the same kind’. You can drive it with 1TB3 and 1DP or 1DP and HDMI etc. Until I get a display port adapter, I am using my apple HDMI dongle.
                      – if you use the side-by side, depending on the PACS, your hanging protocols can get jacked up because it recognizes it it as a 4 monitor setup. Both monitors come up as 2160×1920.
                      – if you run it as one monitor via the TB input, you get the same resolution 3840×2160 as the separate inputs, but you dont have to deal with the jacked up hanging protocols
                      – when running Citrix Receiver in a VM that is diplayed on a Macbook with the Radeon grapics, there is a incompatibility between the hardware acceleration on the Radeon and the Citrix Receiver which uses DirectX9. If you download the Microsoft developer kit for DirectX9, you can turn off hardware acceleration and everything is hunky dory.
