Monitor is defaulted to a really low brightness when 1milisecond is enable
This monitor is really good for the price at first I thought it was to good of a deal to be true but it’s a really good monitor and don’t be deceived because of how lightweight the monitor is. It’s excellent for gaming but one thing I would say is that the monitor is not 1 millisecond responsive by default you have to change it in the monitor settings but the bad thing is when you enable 1 millisecond response time the monitor is defaulted to a really low brightness that you can’t change but overall it’s a really good monitor for the price 100 percent would recommend
27" 1080p 165hz, and HDR??
I bought this mainly for the size and the 165hz refresh rate, also I read that VA monitors have a deeper black than IPS without the constant backglow, I can confirm this seems to be the case with this VA monitor, as my previous monitor was an IPS. As an added bonus and something that isn't listed in the specs in the OSD there is an HDR option that you can enable, Windows also allows you to toggle the HDR option within the OS when this is enabled, this sets the screen to a very bright setting with no option to change the brightness but in my personal opinion it is much nicer than not enabling HDR and manually configuring it, this was based on general usage and watching HDR videos on YouTube with and without the HDR setting enabled. It's likely only HDR 400 or close to, though I thought it was a nice surprise addition nonetheless. There does appear to be some slight ghosting? As noted by other reviews, and setting the response time to standard seems to be the go to recommendation, though I would advise you try all of the OSD options and configure your graphics card drivers to get the best possible visual settings that work for you. Aside from the above it seems a perfectly good monitor for the price,the stand is fine though nothing to write home about, the OSD is easy to navigate,it has speakers which most won't use though are fine for basic use, office, maybe the odd YouTube video though I wouldn't recommend for gaming or music. All in all for the £145 I paid for the 27" 165hz version, it's well worth it. 4.5 stars
Awesome, first curved screen, which was strange to begin with, but easy to get used to. It appears to be excellent value for money, at the time of writing. Can't wait to see it's true potential, when Graphics Cards return to a sensible price, and are readily available.... eventually!!!

Great Monitor For Gaming & Multi-Screening
This Monitor is great for gaming, 144hz using the Display Port & also using the HDMI, the screen is perfect for a multi monitor set up as seen is photo, the monitor comes with 1 HDMI Cable, 1 Display Port Cable & a Power Cable with a European Plug so you will have to either buy a adaptor for that plug or buy a new power cable that will fit your plug socket, the monitor is in 1080x1920 which initially makes everything look a little stretched but after a few hours of using the monitor you stop to notice it, the monitor being in this resolution means that your graphics card has less strain trying to run it. Overall i would highly recommend this monitor, great for gaming and watching shows and what not on.
Great value, a hidden gem
I'm really pleased with this monitor. I just upgraded my graphics card to an RTX 2070, and with my old 22" 1080p 60Hz monitor the new GPU was only using about 30% of it's power. So I searched for an affordable, higher res 144Hz monitor to go with it and thought this was too good to be true when I found this. There were very few UK reviews, but many of the USA reviews stated that the image was poor out of the box but very good once a bit of time is spent adjusting it. And that is exactly what I have found. The default settings just did not show the monitor off to it's best. In games, the colours were too red & washed out. Using the software provided, the picture looked much better, and showed what the monitor is capable of, but then I had to switch between different modes to get the best picture depending on the type of game I was playing. I quickly got tired of that and decided to adjust the custom setting instead, to try and achieve a single good picture for all games. In the end, a drop of the red by a few points, and a couple of clicks down on the brightness, and all my games are looking good using this single setting. Now that is sorted, I will say this - Wow, the picture is fantastic, and all my games have taken on a new look, including feeling more immersive due to the increase in screen size. I have no dead pixels and the monitor looks well made. The curved screen is a positive I think. It is really not much of a curve, so it almost seems unnecessary, but on the other hand, it brings the outer edges of the screen to the same eye distance as the centre, so overall I think it's a plus. Certainly there's no sign of any distortion. And it does look pretty cool. This is a great monitor - excellent image, and excellent value for money. Note to Amazon & prospective buyers: My one complaint is not about the product but about the way the monitor arrived. There was no external Amazon packaging, so anyone can see what it is. The driver also told me that signature was not required & he would have left it on the doorstep if I had not been in (not his fault, but that is what his instructions are for this particular item). He thought that was ridiculous given the value and nature of the item, and I agree with him. So Amazon, you need to make sure this is a signed for item. And anyone buying, I advise you to be sure to be in to accept the delivery.
144hz 1080p Free Sync gaming without breaking the bank
I've been using this monitor since i picked it up on the Black Friday sales. I did a lot of research into 144hz monitors before buying this, but the selection of 27" 144hz monitors is pretty slim unless you want to spend a ridiculous amount. Every review i saw of this monitor said "its not very bright". Now its not the brightest monitor out there, but i can say that its more than bright enough, i have 2 other 27" BenQ monitors, that i always run at 80% brightness which matched this monitor perfectly when it was at full brightness. I could see someone having issues with this monitor if they're near a window, but lets be realistic, us gamer arent sat in a brightly lit open space, were in an artificial lit small man/woman cave (*other genders may apply") my gaming room/home office/ hideaway from the wife is approximately 3 m x2.5m, has blackout blinds and is light with a 4 watt led daylight bulb, and its perfect for me. I am using the freesync functionality. I am using it with G-Sync on a MSI 1060 and so far it has worked flawlessly with a number of games ive played. My only regret about this monitor is that i didnt buy three
LG27GN88A full review This review is my honest opinion and has been no way been subject to change or influence. So I’ve just built myself a new high end gaming pc and wanted a stylish monitor that could do 144hz at 1440p. After watching numerous reviews I settled on this. Packaging - the monitor comes in a large and weighty black box, open it up and your met with some polystyrene, lift this up and your presented with the monitor itself wrapped in a soft touch bag. Underneath the monitor is the Flexible arm, it’s heavy so be careful. You also get a power lead. A display port cable (1.4) and a hdmi (2.0) cable. Setting up - nice and easy to click the articulating arm onto the back of the monitor, just slide the top in first and then the bottom clicks into place, I would however put the clamp in place on your desk first before attaching the monitor. It just makes it less cumbersome. The bracket attaches under the desk using a screw like mechanism, it’s really sturdy when it’s attached though. Display - turned it on and my first impression was wow that looks good! I was using a display port cable at the full 1440p and it looks great. Bright and vibrant and colours are accurate. Going into the settings and I would suggest leaving everything at default, there is on option to change the response time to “fastest” but this then introduces a strange ghosting effect that isnt present on the default “fast” setting. The pc then recognised it was running at 144hz and adjusted everything accordingly. I booted up f1 2020 at 144fps and this thing is buttery smooth. I mean you really do have to see it to believe it how smooth it is, all this whilst maintaining vibrant and accurate colours. I use photoshop and illustrator a lot as well and this monitor shines musing these applications too, very detailed image and just screams quality. Negatives - there’s only one, if your wanting to wall mount this monitor please bare in mind that the DP cable end is quite long! Once plugged into the monitor it protrudes from the back quite a bit so if your mount is close the wall your going to have a problem, to fix this either mount the tv offset from the wall a bit or you can buy a DP right angle bracket...just make sure it’s 1.4 compliant. Overall this really is a great monitor, there’s a lot of monitors at this price point but if your wanting something fairly minimal and a top performer then this is the monitor for you! You won’t regret your purchase. If you liked this review then please mark it as helpful, this allows us to keep reviewing products like this for you. Thanks
A well priced beautiful looking monitor.. but misleading HDR10
A truly beatuiful display with a great display featuring amazing colours.. compared to my old TN panel at least. The thin bezels really help make the screen look great even when the display is turned off. Pros -Great colours -Good looking -Well done OSD and controls -adaptive sync was easy to set up with geforce panel. Cons -misleading HDR10. Its not really HDR 10, its not even HDR40 technincally. It can accept hdr10 signals is what it means. -It can only support 1440p hdr with adaptive sync at 100hz via hdmi or turn adaptive sync off for 144hz. Display port can do it all though.
A stunning IPS 1440p gaming monitor
The LG 27GL83A-B is a great 1440p IPS monitor that delivers great gaming performance. It has a very fast response time that delivers fast-moving content with almost no blur trail and has very low input lag. It is a cheaper, slightly less featured variant of the heralded and very well reviewed LG GL850 which is exclusive to another UK retailer. The only difference between this panel and that one is the GL83 has a slightly lower colour space due to the use of a different backlight and no USB ports on the back. That being said it still shows almost the entire sRGB colour space which is used by the majority of content. The monitor comes pre-calibrated by the factory with a calibration report in the box, and with a slight tweak to the brightness (from 50 to 15) you can achieve a great colour temperature and fantastic accuracy. Additionally, the monitor comes with multiple overdrive modes to enhance pixel responsiveness, choose Fast, not Fastest, as the Fastest setting introduces horrific inverse ghosting and overshoot. The fast setting performs the best with fast transitions and very little blur or trailing. Finally before wrapping up with pros and cons, you can see from my photo that I have it VESA mounted and I had no problems doing so on my Amazon Basics Dual monitor arm. Pros + Fast response times with almost all pixel transitions within the 6.94ms window of 144hz. + 144hz IPS monitor 27" + VESA mountable (100x100) + Thin 1cm bezel on sides and top, slightly thicker on the bottom + Freesync monitor that is also Gsync compatible (works with AMD and Nvidia graphics cards) + Price (I paid £330 - which is stunning for an IPS 1440p 144hz monitor) + Colour accuracy + Great viewing angles + Excellent grey uniformity + Excellent gradient handling, no banding issues + Joystick style button to control the OSD is fantastically easy to use and navigate Cons - Claims to be HDR but peak brightness and lack of local dimming means its not really HDR - Contrast ratio is 894:1 (Like other IPS it suffers in very dark scenes in a dark room but its not very noticeable and can be aided by using bias lighting behind the monitor) - Lack of availability? Other facts * Thickness with stand is 16cm, without the stand it is only 5.6cm. * Comes with 1 display port and two HDMI connections which are very accessible * Bezels are thin at 1cm around three edges, slightly thicker on bottom bezel. * Weight with stand is about 6kg and without stand its 4kg * 27" panel, 2560x1440p resolution, 144hz refresh rate * Freesync and Gsync compatible * HDMI only reaches 120hz * Comes with power adapter brick and both HDMI and DisplayPort cables.
A gaming monitor is a computer display used to play games. It can be bought for as little as $300 or as much as $1500. The price of a gaming monitor depends on the size of the screen, panel technology, and features. The most basic model, the 24-inch TN display, is relatively cheap, but it doesn’t offer many features or image quality. More expensive models come with higher refresh rates, multiple digital video inputs, and USB hubs. A gaming laptop monitor may also include the latest technologies such as FreeSync or G-Sync.
When it comes to choosing the right gaming monitor, there are two main types: curved and angled. The difference between the two types of monitors is only apparent if you look at the curved version, which is the most common. Despite their similarities, however, the angled version is often the best option for gamers. They offer an even more immersive gaming experience, with much better colors and a larger screen. The smallest model is designed to be small, and will not interfere with your gaming.
A gaming monitor has many features, and a variety of panel technologies will allow you to choose the best option for your needs. You can also select a curved display if you want a more realistic gaming experience. A curved monitor is great for viewing game files, but it can’t be positioned in the same way as a curved one. A curved display will help you see details that a rounded-edge display won’t. A curved monitor will give you a better overall view.
The size of your gaming monitor is an important consideration when choosing a gaming monitor. If your budget is limited, you may want to purchase a larger monitor, which may be necessary for your specific game. It’s also important to choose one that is attractive and supports lighting coordination. For example, the Asus Aura Sync and Razer Chroma models feature lighting options. Furthermore, you should consider buying a gaming monitor that supports cable management. This will make sure that your wires are neatly fed through holes or channels. If you’re using a USB hub, this can be especially important.
A gaming monitor is a PC accessory that you can use to play games. If you’re looking for a monitor for gaming, it’s best to choose a model with several video inputs. The most common types are TN, IPS, and VA panels. TN and IPS panels offer the fastest response rates, but IPS panels are better for solo gamers who prefer to focus on graphics rather than performance. A high-quality LED gaming monitor will be compatible with multiple game consoles, including those that support a lot of peripherals.
There are many other factors to consider when purchasing a gaming monitor. While price is an important factor, the quality of the display is also very important. Unlike a standard multi-function monitor, a gaming monitor has a higher resolution than a multimedia monitor. Generally, they are faster than non-gaming PCs. A low-quality model could result in choppy gameplay, while a high-end one would have a smooth and colorful display.
