    Light bleed...forget it. Stop worrying about spec verifiers turning up the controls to max and then looking at a black screen. In the real world...this is a killer monitor. I think 94% of buyers reated this monitor 4 or 5...and recommended it. I agree. It certainly destroys my 27 inch 1080. The resolution is unbelievably sharp. Colors are woderful. Color calibration is spot on right out of the box...and compares nicely to my Sypder PRO 5 color calibrated 27 inch 1080. What's not to like. I did turn down the brightness from 70% to 50%. For me it was just too bright at 70%. I will never consider buying a 1080 monitor again for screens sized 27 inches and larger. Yes it works for Word...makes the characters look entirely different...so sharp and easy to read for you writers out there like me. In fact, that's why I bought it. I use it for Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, Microsoft Office 365, and watching videos. Excellent. Note, if you use Mozilla products like Thunderbird and Firefox, they will not scale when you attach a 4K monitor. You will have to look on the internet to find the instuctions for making the text larger. It's easy...took me all of 5 minutes. For general Windows viewing, If Windoz doesn't scale automatically, you'll also have to set your default resolution to 150% or larger, by going to Settings, Display, and then in the box set the screen display to your desired size. I wound up using 200%...I think...just make several adjustments until you find the one that best suits your taste. I found that I could scale my Word documents to a size that suited me, but without without doing the above, the ribbon controls were a bit small. Okay...I love mine...recommended...get one. And stop worrying about reviewers that cut a star for "flimsy." It's plastic, sits on your desk or mounts to a VESA wall mount...who cares....duh. One other note: This monitor has one joystick button to turn it on and off and make menu selections....works just like my Samsung TV. Easy to use...no learning curve...pretty straight forward. Press to turn on, then press again to see the menu options, Use the joystick to select a menu option, then push the button again to select it, and use the joystick to move between the funtions, Repeat for funtion options to set levels, etc. Hope this helps. Happy user...happy I got mine at $349, on sale just before Christmas.

    The perfect monitor for MacBook Pro

    Posted

    I purchased this monitor for use with a MacBook Pro 15". I use it primarily for photo editing. My MacBook's display I have hardware calibrated and to my pleasant surprise, this LG monitor, right out of the box, was factory calibrated so well that I do not need to use a separate profile for it to match the calibrated MacBook. For best accuracy, I have the screen brightness turned down to about 70%. This is a really nice display in terms of performance and aesthetics. Connectivity: I have several dongles for USB-C to HDMI but only one of them supported 4K @ 60hz and it was ugly and bulky. I read some reviews elsewhere that indicated a USB-C to DisplayPort cable (no box, just a cable) was the best solution. I purchased that cable from a very large online store ;) for less than $20 and now I have 4K @ 60hz. The cable is a very thin and flexible (about the same diameter as the Mac USB-C charger cable) which keeps my desk space neat and organized. Prior to making this purchase, I did a lot of research on 4k/5k panels. I had the 27" iMac 5K for awhile but found it a hassle to use two different machines (it and my MacBook). The 5K iMac set a new, higher standard for me so it was tough to find a monitor that didn't feel like a letdown when put in comparison. This LG seems to be the best deal with what I perceive to be no compromises. 4K vs. 5K wasn't that critical to me. LG makes another version of this monitor that uses the same display panel but it combines the video and MacBook charging power through a single USB-C connection from the monitor. There is a considerable price difference for this one, significant enough that I can't justify the cost just to eliminate one little cable connection.

    Hardcore Console Gaming

    I usually never review but I had to with this monitor... I was skeptical to use a 4k monitor for my consol gaming (PS4 Pro), only because I play FPS more than anything so fast movement and responsiveness is extremely important to me and I was worried about blur and being glitchy since its 60hz and 5ms response being an IPS panel. Yes I love a snappy fast monitor but I also love great picture quality and vibrance with colors. So I guess you can say I'm a hardcore gamer with a taste for visual quality but needs the best workability at the same time during competition. Let me just say now, this monitor blew me away! The picture with HDR is amazing! (although with HDR I belive it's at 9ms) It's still extremely fast and responsive, no drag across the screen or glitchy pictures during fast movement, super fluid! If you want 5ms response you will have to turn off HDR on the consol and customize the settings on the monitor to "Fastest" response under game settings but the difference is worth just keeping the HDR on. On the topic of settings, this menu has so many options to fit the picky user like me! You can customize the quality according to your taste adjusting every color (and I mean even colors other than RGB) and blackness levels which is a huge plus with dark games. I would say that you have just enough settings to play with right before it becomes overkill, so long story short: you have options. To keep this review short bottom line is: If you're a hardcore consol gamer that relies on responsiveness but also love great visual quality and color, buy this right now!! Worth every penny (even though it's super affordable lol) Ask me questions and I'll reply as fast as I can to help!

    Amazing 4K HDR Monitor for Xbox One X!

    Posted
    bcatwilly

    I have been playing my Xbox One X on a 65" TCL 6 series 4K HDR TV 2018 model, and my boys had been playing an Xbox One X on a 1080p computer monitor. They finally talked me into looking for 4K HDR monitors, and I really could not find anything at first that would check all the boxes of native 4K resolution, IPS panel, HDR, and AMD Freesync support. I had pretty much given up until I stumbled upon this 2018 LG monitor release. This thing is incredible with the Xbox One X (and with our PC connected to it of course). I will not claim that the HDR is as good as my TCL 6 series TV, BUT it is actually very good and clearly enough to make a real difference when watching 4K HDR content and playing games. We looked at the following content to test things out: 1. The Insects demo on the Xbox store very clearly showed how awesome the 4K detail matters even when looking at a 27" monitor a couple feet away, and the HDR toggle on and off really showed the awesome rich colors on the flowers and the ladybug in a way that I wasn't expecting. 2. We played Planet Earth 2 through the Xbox One X on 4K Blu-ray, and wow it honestly was pretty close to how great it looks on my TCL 6 series. Again, very surprising for me at least. 3. I fired up Gears of War 4 which IMO has some 4K HDR reference type material in some of the gameplay such as the lightning storms, and again I was extremely impressed by the fact that this monitor actually does give you a very credible/good HDR experience on this type of content IMO. This is definitely where the TCL 6 series was able to pull ahead more in terms of the HDR, BUT the in game HDR side by side visualization feature definitely really showed that this is still very nice and worth having here. It also appears that Freesync and HDR can be enabled at the same time without issue based on testing so far. In short my boys are very happy that they now get to experience the Xbox One X 4K HDR gaming basically as intended, and this monitor is nice enough that I would have no problem playing my games on it if they wanted to play on my 65" TCL 6 series at some point either.

    This display impresses!

    I was on the hunt for a second display for my 27" iMac. Given that Apple's 5K option prices me out, I started looking at 4K displays. Immediately upon walking up to the display section, this display stood out as having the most striking picture. I'm not sure if it was monitor settings, or if the panel is truly head and shoulders above the rest that were on display, but other displays looked "washed out' compared to this one. I also liked the design of this display compared to the other displays that I was considering - it looks sleek and has thin bezels - super important if you're going to put two of these side-by-side to use as one large desktop. Typically I do more research on these types of purchases, but my eyes told me all I needed to know when compared to the other displays. The IPS panel in this monitor is great for gaming, however, I use this monitor almost exclusively for productivity apps. However, I do like that when moving windows around there's no trailing / ghosting as can be seen on some "slower" panels. When using this with the iMac, I originally had it connected to the monitor via a Thunderbolt to HDMI adaptor which was not providing me with a lot of resolution options. I purchased a Thunderbolt to DisplayPort cable, and I was then presented with a lot more options - including a scaled QHD 2560x1440, which was not present when using Thunderbolt to HDMI. Though 2560x1440 is not a "half" multiple of 3840x2160 - the scaling that the Mac can do with this monitor leaves text very sharp - and almost matches the quality of the Retina 5K display built into the iMac. Unless you're pixel peeping, you wouldn't notice the difference in this scaled resolution on this display vs. being on a native 5K display. Overall - I am very pleased with this purchase and would purchase again given the opportunity. This display is so nice in fact, that if I had the option today, I'd probably buy a decked out MacMini and two of these vs the 27" iMac.

    Very good clear picture in bright room

    Posted

    While the picture is great for viewing in bright room there is a lot of light bleed from backlight especially in lower right hand corner. There is also some in other corners as well some along the top edge just left of center. I looked online & this pattern of light bleed matched what I seen online. This truly interferes with viewing in low light enough to obscure detail especially in lower right hand corner in darkened room. Only fix was to turn backlight all the way down which minimizes impact in scenes that require intense lighting to get best dynamic range. Good news is that the picture gets nice & bright for viewing in bright rooms & had best looking picture of all the 4k monitors on display. This monitor lacks height adjustment & rotation adjustment but mounting feels sturdy so I'm not taking any points off for that. I wish that this monitor supported user calibration but even so looks to be fairly accurate. Don't bother turning on HDR except to use with true HDR content as HDR does not look good on desktop no matter how you slice & dice it settings wise. I tried very hard to make it look good on desktop but too much color issues for it to work there. While the view didn't look washed out so much it just didn't pop either as good as it did with good old sRGB for desktop. However it was enteresting that some picture elects turned out to be quite overesaturated especially the red close button for closing window was way overesaturated compared to SRGB. So lesson is use sRGB for desktop & apps but turn on HDR for HDR content only. Windows does not automatically switch unfortunately. Maybe in a future update. I have the latest 1809 version installed here & it still does not auto switch. This monitor is recommended if you are viewing in bright room but not otherwise.

    I don't know what's not to like about this monitor. I paired it with an XPS 15 9570, Active USB-C to HDMI cable, and I get 3840x2160@60hz. The 60hz part is important. Less than that on these big screens becomes very obvious. I suggest reading the manual though. There are settings in the OSD that look like something you'd want but can have negative impacts on the viewing experience. For example: Super Resolution+ should only be turned on for gaming. It gives fonts in the desktop jaggy edges. HDMI Ultra HD Deep Color also needs to be on for 60hz. If it's off, the refresh rate slows to 30hz. Point is, read the book. It's easy to make the display look sub-optimal with the wrong settings. With the right settings, it's excellent. 150% scaling @ 3840x2160/60hz on Windows 10 with Clear Type turned on = Awesome. You can make yourself crazy looking over specs and reviews. This monitor does the job and looks great. Stop looking, get this one.

    Great 4K Monitor, HDR not too great

    I bought this monitor to sit beside my other 4K LG monitor, the recently discontinued 27UD69P. The 27UD69P is essentially the same monitor with a better stand, but without "HDR" support. If you already have the 27UD69P, or a similar monitor from the same model family, and you're looking to upgrade to the 27UK600 solely based off its HDR compatibility- you're going to be disappointed. That said, if this will be your first 4K monitor, or if HDR isn't a priority, then this is still a solid choice. Simply put: It's not true HDR, and 99% of what you watch/play on this monitor will look much better with HDR turned off. HDR10 @ 350 nits, 8bit + A-FRC color depth, contrast ratio around 1000:1, & no local dimming support, is not true HDR. It's a bit of a marketing gimmick by LG, & they're not the only company advertising their monitors in this manner. Is it HDR compatible? Yes. Does the HDR perform well? Not really. But this is true for most HDR monitors currently on the market. If you want a monitor with HDR that performs well, I'd suggest waiting just a little bit longer until the tech catches up. Until then, TVs do a better job in regards to HDR.

    Fantastic monitor and great price when on sale

    I purchased this monitor for $329 then later price matched for $310. I would definitely recommend this monitor for this price for your average wknd warrior photographer, console gamer, or mixed use web surf/business usage. I bought it exclusively for Xbox one x gaming. It is the perfect size, perfect brightness and has a very low 8-10ms input lag. The HDR is lacking as in it doesn't change things much at all so I set my Xbox to disable hdr10 while using this monitor and use the custom mode to configure it how I want. For the price and the features it is a 5 star monitor. For a console gaming 4k monitor if you get it for $330 or less nothing else beats it. One thing to know going in, a monitor will not look as good as a decent 4k hdr TV. TVs are meant to look great. Monitors are meant to perform great. My 4k TV has a near 7000-1 contrast ratio. You're not finding a monitor with a ratio like that unless you spend thousand. The pixels are crisp though as 4k @ 27 inches offers a super high pixel density. The color is also very good. Just don't expect TV contrast levels. Also the 650 is the same monitor with an adjustable stand. The 600w is the same monitor with the ability to get slightly brighter in some situations that allowed it to achieve hdr 400 ratings. This will be the best value out of all of them and if I were to spend more money it would be for the better stand as 30-50nits of brightness won't matter for the hdr performance.

    A great monitor with just the right inputs

    Posted
    RLON47

    Performance, appearance and price are probably the features most important in searching for a monitor. Supported interfaces and easy of use are just slightly less important. How you set the monitor up is likely not nearly as significant. And for all of these reasons, I give the LG 4K 27UK600-W 5 stars. The quality of the images presented on this screen are stunning. The HDR feature makes TV and movies pop. My sample had no light bleed, glow or pixel issues. The monitor is nice to look at even when it off. The anti-glare feature takes out the shine but without adding a dullness to the images as I’ve seen on other monitors. The bezels are very thin except along the bottom. The black front trim compliments the brushed silver appearance of the metal stand and curved foot. There are 2 HDMI 2.0 inputs. Nice. There is also a 1 Display Port version 1.2 port and an audio out/headphone jack. That’s it. No USB ports. Everything I needed and nothing more. The 27UK600-W uses LG’s mini joystick to move through its menus. This is a clever device that seems a bit odd at first but is very intuitive and offers a host of user-controlled features. The joystick is hidden out of sight along at the center of the bottom bezel, but easy to reach when needed. It has been a while since I’ve needed to screw parts on to any electronic device I’ve purchased. The monitor riser (which is not adjustable on this model) needs to be connected to the monitor by two small screws. A matching plastic cover conceals this connection. Assembling the monitor was easy, but this was the one oddity in the whole process of opening the box and getting the monitor up and running. It is a minor point given the how well this monitor ticks off all of those other features.

    LG Lacking Quality Control

    So bought this online and had it shipped to my apartment. At no fault to Best buy, but the box did arrive damaged. Unpacked it, and hooked it up. Everything looked great except when it was a dark screen (or just pure black) there was bright spots towards the bottom where the box was damaged. Upon further inspection, there was also green light/lines shining through the pixels in this area. I returned it and got a replacement within a few days, this time having it shipped to Best Buy. Hooked up the 2nd one yesterday and found the same exact issue with green lines between pixels when the screen is displaying dark colors or black except now on the right side of the screen and also one dead pixel. Contemplating if it is worth packing up and returning again. I really want to love this monitor, and everything else is great, but these green lines are definitely noticeable when dark images are being displayed, and not sure if I can get over that for the years to come.

    I am immensely impressed with this monitor. I got the open box deal on it and was pretty nervous about it since I seem to have really bad luck with open box items at Best Buy, but the monitor was in described condition and only had the missing screws. I had plenty at home, so it wasn't that big of a deal. The actual performance of the monitor blew me away. It is super punchy when doing anything that requires, but keeps the accuracy and adheres to media standards very faithfully. There is a bit of color inaccuracy in my testing, but since I am using this monitor for both consuming media and photo and video editing I will take the compromise. I had an older Dell monitor that I did not want to replace due to it's amazing performance, but this monitor is superior in most ways that the Dell has been relegated to my secondary monitor. Friendly note that HDR is broken in Windows. It's there, but you'd have a better experience just only turning on HDR mode when you are playing a game that supports it. Having said that, the monitor has no array zones and isn't OLED, so HDR is not going to give you the oomph you probably been hearing about. I have a hard time recommending this monitor if you are looking for HDR content. I would seek other advice tho since I personally haven't liked the way HDR has been implemented in most media, so maybe someone who personally loves HDR will tell you this monitor does it beautifully, but from my point of view, I'd look elsewhere.

    I purchased two of these. I don’t normally do reviews but decided to warn anyone look to purchase this monitor Let’s start of with the issues. The monitor’s signal input is flaky, unfortunately I can’t think of a better word other an its bad. I have work in the IT field for 20 year and have never seen or experienced this with any other monitor. So let me explain. I have a 2018 Mac mini and when it boots up some times I see the bootup apple and some times there is nothing then eventually my login appears. I personally don’t like this The other PC is a Windows 10 with a GTX 780. When it stats to boot I see the BIOS then it goes blank. Then some times the login screen shows and all is good and sometimes the monitor says no signal and it goes to sleep The PCs lights mouse and keyboard shows its running. I have to do a hard reboot and then after one sometimes two the login screen shows I wanted to return these monitors because this is not acceptable but I missed the 14 day return window by one day I’m using the most up to date driver for my systems and the provided cables and it does not help On the positive side when the monitors do see a signal they look very good

    AWESOME 4K "HDR" IPS MONITOR FOR THE PRICE!

    I got this on a deal for $319 compares to its original price of $449. I know I had to get it! Haha. Having a PS4 Pro while playing on a LED 1080p tv made this switch a magical one. The difference between 4k and 1080p was massive in my eyes. This monitor is plenty bright in a small room like mine. The customization settings the monitor offers are great! It's not true HDR, but how the monitor still simulates HDR10 is just amazing. The input lag and response time for this monitor is I would say really good for games that are hard on reaction like fighting and fps games. Pictures and videos don't do justice. You have to see it with your own eyes. >Great Price >Great Quality monitor by LG >Awesome input lag & response time >Plenty bright for a small room >Awesome 4k Graphics for my PS4 Pro >Quick Easy Setup

    Picked up this monitor after my 12 year old Asus Gaming monitor finally died. (I used that, and now this, as my second screen for Streaming and extra space.) The screen real estate in 4k is INCREDIBLE! I can fit an insane amount of windows and content in the space, which helps workflow a lot. Comes with HDMI and a Displayport cable. I have no idea how the stand is, as I mounted this on desk arm mounts immediately after unboxing it. The monitor settings are fine. Nothing special hidden in there. (I only notice this because my main monitor is an Acer Predator 24inch 180hz... That screen has A TON of settings to dig through) I have a NVIDIA GPU, so the FreeSync is a useless feature for me. Actually played the Black OPS 4 Blackout Beta, which supports 4k and HDR. STUNNING, especially for a COD game. I couldn't really recommend this as a gaming monitor, at least for shooters. The 5MS is good enough. The 60HZ is kind of painful for gaming (All in my opinion... Keep in mind I run a 180hz monitor as my main. These little nit pickey things are massive for me.) Despite my little complaints, this is an amazing screen for the money. Even better if you can get it Open Box.

    I have been looking to replace a nice Samsung 27in 1080P monitor for 3 months. I own a custom built gaming PC with a Geforce GTX 1080TI card, 32Gig ram, I7 Processor and I wanted a nice monitor to game with, write papers on and just surf the web. After looking at hundreds of reviews I decided to give this one a try. I got it hooked up in 15 minutes, no problems, out of the box config was solid and the picture is amazing. I tweaked the setting for Game and played a round of World of Warships on their 4K setting as well as World of Warcraft. I admit it isnt a mega fast gaming monitor but it works extremely well in my opinion, most people would not notice the difference unless they are detail obsessed. The clarity is amazing and performance certainly meets my needs, its a joy to use. If your on the fence looking at a 4K monitor, I think this is your pick. I was worried about font size but honestly the clarity alone makes the user experience a pleasure. I am definitely happy I spent the money...

    After about 4 weeks of going over reviews of both 5 and 4k monitors I became numb with the overload of information, statistics and opinions. I ended up settling on this model, connected to a 2018 Mac mini via an active DP cable through Thunderbolt 3. All I can say is the quality of the image is fantastic! Colors are vivid yet accurate. Viewing angles are exceptional and MacOS Mojave's native scaling makes viewing text, images, webpages and various spreadsheets/and slide shows very easy on my older set of eyes. I was going to purchase this unit even before it went on sale ($100 off regular price). For the cost, functionality, quality and appearance it is an exceptional buy. I also have not experienced any issues with the stand as others have. For me, this is a perfect match for my mini. Would recommend this for anybody looking for an affordable 4K monitor that is under 32" and wants the benefits of the higher resolutions 4k provides! I would highly recommend the use of an ACTIVE Thunderbolt 3 cable to obtain the best, most stable results.

    Picked this up yesterday at my local Best Buy and couldn't wait to get it home. I had an LG 1080p monitor and an ASUS 1440p monitor. I mainly game on PC but I also own a PS4 Pro. I really wanted to see what 4K HDR looks like... I'm just not ready to buy a TV yet or know which one I want yet. So... I did some research and stumbled on this monitor. Super high reviews and right in my price range on sale for Labor Day. 4K, HDR 10, thin bezels, LG, multiple inputs, FreeSync. WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE? Ok it doesn't have any speakers but who relies on monitor speakers anyway? The PS4 Pro looks great on this monitor. HDR is all it's hyped up to be. Was testing with Uncharted 4 the difference I'm seeing on this monitor with 4K HDR 10 on the PS4 Pro compared to what I've been seeing at 1080p SDR.... IS STAGGERING. I also was able to play some Battlefield 1 on my PC to check out the HDR on that.... looks fantastic. Assembly was easy, didn't need any calibration. Comes with HDMI and DP cables. Played around with the settings. Lost of things to tweak! Several Game Mode settings several HDR settings. Very intuitive menus just like LG tvs. 2 thumbs up. At the price this is HARD TO BEAT.

    My PC usage was considerably declining before I purchased this monitor. Now I find that it is my go to device again - from the mundane email reading and Facebook browsing to gaming - this monitor really brings out the detail that I did not realize I was missing until I replaced my old monitors. The wide screen allowed me to drop the two monitor set-up I had because there is room to divide your screen up and view, say, an Excel sheet while keying in numbers from your bank account via a web browser. The monitor comes with an onscreen software that allows you to designate how you want your screen split, or you can just manually drag and size items. This monitor will please the basic user - it makes reading text and on-line magazines like Flipboard a pleasure. You can also catch a streaming video movie on it if your significant other is watching something else because the screen is THAT GOOD. It will also please the gamer, as the monitor handles the visuals of these games in all their stunning detail (as long as you have the graphics card for it). If the eyes are the window to the soul, this monitor should be your window to your PC.

    Purchase this monitor do to photoshop work for my MacBook Pro 2016 make sure you get a 4k usb-c cable for the Mac and monitor to get that true quality image of the monitor and gaming for my PS4 Pro and xbox one x. What can I say amazing!!! 4K with HDR 60Hz perfect for consoles (not for PC Gaming). I agree with everyones rating, amazing product. I think this might be one of the best monitor out there for consoles and with the touch of free sync for xbox one x users is a plus. The only con is that the monitor doesn't have built-in speakers but for $22 bucks you can buy decent Logitech speakers at best buy. it would get the job done. Color 4k HDR is sooo good to look at while playing amazing games that support it.

    I would recommend this to a friend
