According to LG, the DualUp is a more efficient use of virtual desk space when using your PC. LG argues that much of the content you consumer on a computer these days is formatted horizontally, so a taller display enables the ability to see more of that content on screen at once.

We've seen this a little bit with PC makers slowly moving to 16:10 and 3:2 aspect ratios, which are slightly taller than the common 16:9 displays you're probably used to. but 16:18 takes things to a whole new level, essentially bundling the equivalent of two 16:9 displays bolted together vertically.

In fact, one of the features of the DualUp is the ability to display two sources at once in that above and below configuration, essentially giving you two monitors in one. It also supports HDR10 content, and has USB-C Type C input with 90W of power delivery to keep your laptop charged.

I've had my eye on the LG DualUp for a while, because I like the idea. The monitor even comes with LG's excellent ergo-stand, which is able to swivel and adjust in any way you like, meaning you can position the monitor where you find it most comfortable. 

For me, I'm going to use it as a secondary monitor for monitoring Slack or TweetDeck, as I think it's perfectly suited for that.
