LG StanbyME Go 27LX5 Portable Monitor Targets Picnickers

LG is launched The new LG StandbyMe Go (27LX5), which in a nutshell is a 27 inch display in a suitcase (h/t Lilliputin). Other attractive features of this relatively large portable display include an adjustable built-in stand, a carry-on suitcase, speakers, and a 3-hour battery life. LG’s lifestyle images suggest that the 27LX5’s main intended use case is as a picnic device. I can imagine a few other uses without tents.

From the introductory description and the images above and below, you probably already have a good idea of ​​the potential appeal of the new LG StanbyMe Go (27LX5) (pun intended). Here are some of the product technical specifications:

With WebOS 22 installed, the LG StandbyMe Go works well as a big ‘tablet’ so you don’t need to plug in another device to play your favorite videos and music. WebOS also has a variety of apps that enable features such as voice control, AirPlay, and screen mirroring. It has an HDMI input so you can connect it to a laptop or similar without messing with software.

The 1920×1080 resolution seems relatively low for a 27-inch display, but perhaps it was to improve battery life. If you don’t take your StandbyMe Go with you, you can also use it for conference room presentations. It probably has WiFi, but no built-in display.

Of course, the special sauce here is the suitcase form factor, which offers rugged (MIL-STD-810H) portability, easy setup, and a wide range of display position adjustments, including portrait orientation. As predicted by LG’s media department, it might be good for shoving it in the car and going on a picnic, but it seems a bit too heavy for business travelers.

This isn’t the first of LG’s StandbyME series displays. A few years ago this electronics company introduced his StanbyME (27ART10AKPL). This was also his 27-inch FHD portable monitor with a 3-hour battery life, but this one came with a tall lamp-like pedestal stand.

Removing the stand and adding a suitcase after a few years seems like little accomplishment, but perhaps LG will find a niche for this device among outdoor enthusiasts who don’t want a big screen at home. prize.
