    I got this monitor as a replacement for another LG, and couldn't be happier with the purchase. I use it for both gaming and photo editing, and it shines at both. A good all-around monitor.

    I needed a new monitor for a second gaming rig and when I saw this monitor I had to jump on it. I mean who doesn't want 4K these days... well as long as it's affordable and you have input that supports it. For the price this LG monitor delivers a pretty good bang for the buck. Pros: + 27" 16:9 aspect ratio is a great size for everyday use as well as gaming + 5ms response time means little or no lag while gaming + VESA mount + 4K IPS display @ 3840 x 2160 resolution + HDR and Freesync support + Preset adjustment for FPS gaming + Decent price point for feature set Cons: - 60Hz is just okay for gaming and there are plenty of monitors out there that are 120Hz or better - No speakers but pass through audio capability - HDMI and DisplayPort input with Aux jack to plug in speakers. Don't see the point. All in all this is a well priced monitor and perfect for any gamer or for streaming 4K content and can be a solid performer for home entertainment or business applications.

    If you're looking for an "entry level" 4k monitor, if there is such as thing, this monitor should definitely be in the "I'll check it out," category. I'm very, very impressed by this monitor, to say the least! Firstly, the picture quality of this monitor is amazing, and I'm not saying that just because of the brand. The color settings, which are very, very customize-able are great, particularly if you're like me and like to tweak with those settings. This monitor is not just great for "every day" use, but also for casual gaming. While I'm not a heavy PC gamer, I do casually play, and when I do, it's usually an AAA game that has some hype around it - (FPS, MMO's, online co-op games). Yes, the response time is at 5ms, and that might bother some folks who are into "competitive gaming", but for the "casual" gamer, this monitor will likely meet and exceed your needs - in a good way. Also, 5ms is pretty typical of monitors with these specs and hardware. If you're also concerned about the response time, you may also be somewhat concerned about "refresh rates", though for 4k monitors, 60hz refresh rate is the common standard at the present time. Additionally, this monitor does have a "FreeSync" and multiple "picture mode" settings/options that you can choose from, which is pretty nice if you want to try out different color settings. However, as some FreeSync monitors at the present time can be used as G-Sync, I don't believe this monitor is fully compatible with G-Sync at the present time. As far as some "cons" go, I wish the included display cables (HDMI and display port) were a little bit lengthier. While the stand itself is pretty minimal, and pretty nice, I do also wish it was a little bit more "flat" so that it would balance a bit more nicely on my monitor stand, and I also wish the monitor connections in the back were vertical to be plugged in to the monitor. But those are small gripes when compared the overall quality and purpose of using this monitor. Overall, I'd recommend checking this monitor out if you're looking for a 4k monitor, are a casual gamer, or are just looking for great picture quality overall for "everyday" use. Or if you're all three!

    I have been playing with my system setup, trying to find a second quality, dedicated screen for movies and gaming, and this 4K monitor is what I have been looking for. There is a thing or two I wish were different, but LG has done so much right here I haven't looked back. Set-up is simple and standard. The monitor is solid and has a clean design, nothing too flashy, with nice slim bezels and a curved stand. Oh, the stand. This is my main issue with this monitor. It just is not very customizable. No height adjustment, minimal play in any direction, and it can not be swiveled into portrait mode. Now, for most people, this probably won't be TOO big of an issue, but it is something to keep in mind. That said, there is a VESA mount, so if you need options, they are there. Moving on, I just love the screen. For starters, I absolutely hate glossy screens with all the reflections they bring, and the anti-glare treatment used here is done well. No reflections. I also like that they went with an IPS panel, as the viewing angles are very good. You do not have to get "locked in" on one spot to get the best the monitor has to offer. When it comes to the picture itself, it just looks fantastic. No matter the source. Be it streaming, 4K blu-ray, gaming or simple productivity. Everything looks crisp, bright and just pops. It all looks true to life. UHD movies have that "wow" detail and while I am not the most avid gamer, I have never had games look so good. Detail. Color. Smooth. The ability to keep up. The various game modes do make a difference and while there are faster monitors out there with higher refresh rates, this monitor does more than hold its own, especially at this spot in the market. I am running a fairly strong video card, so it does have enough power to drive games well at high resolutions. Keep that in mind. Further, the monitor has nice connectivity with 2 HDMI and 1 DisplayPort inputs so you can get all your content to the monitor. Switching sources and general monitor control is a breeze as the many, many on-screen settings are controlled with a little joystick nub that is both simple to use as well as intuitive. An audio out is present, but honestly, even if they were not that great, I would have really just preferred some speakers. Ultimately, I really like this monitor. It has a clean design and a nice overall set of features with solid connectivity options, but, most importantly, it delivers a stunning picture. I think it is a great value for what you get, and movie fans as well as gamers would be happy with it in their setup.

    I needed a monitor to wear many different hats. As I have an old arcade cabinet. I needed it to be able to stream online 4K, Play current games with great results (PC and Xbox) and old school games. This one hit on everything I needed. I am extremely pleased with the Performance. @@@@@@@@ The Vesa mounts make this easy to mount inside my cabinet) To start my testing. I found online content on my streaming service that was 4K. I watched a few episodes and was pleased with the colors, sharpness and the deep blacks. @@@@@@@@ Not grays instead of black as my old monitor did) Then I attached my LG 4K Blu-ray DVD and played a few minutes of a 4K movie. Once again same Crisp results. I then installed the monitor in my Arcade cabinet running a gaming PC and Played some Battlefield, Call of Duty with settings set on max. I was very pleased with the detail I was able to see. Down to texture on the trees and buildings. Xbox Battlefield did not disappoint either. From there I launched my Old school arcade front end. And Played many old arcade games. All performed and viewed flawlessly. Setup was easy, they supply a display port cable as well as an Hdmi to get you going. The DVD software has the drivers if you want to install them. There is only 1 button under the middle of the monitor for making menu choices on the unit. @@@@@@@@ Joystick type) They have 11 different modes to choose from with presets for different viewing scenarios. Display orientation can also be configured for portrait and landscape. @@@@@@@@ Great for old school vertical scrolling games) Overall this is a great Monitor, the only drawback with height adjustment. There isn't any, unless you have a few spare books laying around to put under it. But this isn't a game changer for me. I would recommend this to family and friends!!

    I have been using a Dell 27" monitor for my MacBook Pro and Surface Pro and the real draw of it was the USB-C input and hub for the MacBook, but the picture was nothing to write home about. This LG on the other hand, has an incredible picture. Upon arrival it was super easy to unpack and to assemble. Attaching the stand was simple though I may get a vesa mount which this supports as well. I put it together and within minutes had my MacBook plugged in through one of the 2 HDMI ports and the Surface went to the Display Port input. This monitor is not cheap and the first thing I noticed is that the stand is not height adjustable. For this price it really should be, but again, I may mount it so it's not the end of the world. I also wish it had a USB-C input which is beginning to become a stand power and video source. I started with my MacBook and had this monitor side by side with my Dell running a dual monitor setup. There was a stark contrast in picture quality, the LG picture looked much more vivid and alive. Videos look amazing on this as do games. I am not a heavy gamer, but was impressed with the picture and refresh rate. The onscreen menu is easy to use and the LG software is terrific. Being able to do various split screen methods so seamlessly is such a time saver and welcome surprise. I have been using this monitor for about 5 days now and have not had a single issue. The picture is simply stunning.

    Great Monitor, No Dead Pixels, HDR Effect Reliable

    I have been in need of a new monitor and wanted to upgrade to a 4K HDR. I decided to try LG and enjoyed the picture along with ease of navigation within the menu. However I have discovered that if you have a GeForce 980 ti or lower graphics card it predates HDR with DisplayPort 1.2. Luckily you can use HDMI will provides the 4K HDR resolution @ 60Hz Pros: Price No Dead Pixels HDR 10 Effect Setting works well Length of supplied HDMI cord Includes both HDMI and Display Cords 4K 60Hz / FreeSync On-Screen Control Software Cons: Weight of Monitor Not Height Adjustable Audio Speakers are average Max is 60Hz refresh rate ::Setup:: The setup was very easy to put together, the stand comes with easy to follow instructions along with the cables to allow it to easily connect to the back of the computer. Depending on your graphics card you will be using Display Port or HDMI. If you have DisplayPort 1.2 it will not provide the 4K HDR input however the HDMI cable included is 2.0 which will allow if your graphics card supports it. ::Monitor:: The monitor has 2 speakers located at the bottom that provides stereo sound. It sounds good if that is the only source of audio output you have. The menu is easily accessed via a nob under the monitor and is easy to navigate through the settings menu. There are multiple picture settings that could be selected however I chose to stay in HDR Effect to gain the full gambit of color depth / accuracy. Note - if you use Windows 10 HDR Mode , the monitor disables the HDR Effect picture option. I would recommend not using the Windows 10 HDR mode as it did not display all colors accurately. Overall a really good monitor for movies, pictures and casual gaming. If you are really into First Person Shoots then I would recommend playing on a monitor that has at least a 144 or 240 Hz rate.

    Superb SDR 4k Monitor, Mediocre HDR Performance

    LG - 27UL600-W 27" IPS LED 4K UHD FreeSync Monitor with HDR --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Review --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The LG 27UL600-W, the successor to the widely popular and reviewed 27UK series by LG. The main question that everyone has is. Is it good and is it worth upgrading? Let's dive right in and see how the LG 27UL600 performs. Keep in mind, the difference between the LG 27UL600 and the 27UL650 is mainly the stand. Here we go! Right off the bat, comparing my LG 27UL600 to my friends LG 27UK750 is practically identical. The build quality is definitely nice on these LG monitors so if you have/liked the UK series, you shouldn't be disappointed in the UL series. As far as connectivity options, the UL and UK series is practically the same; the only difference is that the UL has a DisplayPort 1.4 while the UK has a DisplayPort of 1.2. This is probably the part you want to read the most, performance! Before I explain any comparisons between the LG UL and LG UK, I have to say that the LG 27UL600-W on its own is a very good monitor. As far as picture quality goes, it's definitely nice and I have no complaints when it comes down to viewing angles,color accuracy, or crispness. The monitor itself has really good SDR brightness while HDR is mediocre at best due to the lack of wide color range and low peak brightness. So my complaint is with the HDR. There's really no benefit here on this monitor and it may even be worse if your monitor is in a dark or poorly lit environment; blacks appear gray. I tested this by playing movies, YouTube and playing games. With HDR enabled, it was honestly not that pleasing. So I would HIGHLY recommend you leaving it on SDR as opposed to HDR. Comparing the UK series with the UL series, the performance is very similar. Brightness for my particular UL600 is on point while the colors are accurate. When it comes down to Vesa DisplayHDR 400, I don't notice much of a difference when compared to HDR 10. One particular feature that I noticed that the UL series has over the UK series is a custom color mode. On my friends LG UK monitor, there's basically preset options only. This is definitely a plus for those that want to customize their colors as opposed to going with manufacture presets. When it comes to utilizing the Freesync/Gsync option on the monitor, I didn't have any problems enabling it for my 2080. Make sure to set your monitor to Freesync Extended Mode. Although the UL series monitor is limited to 60hz, I still like enabling the Freesync/Gsync option so that I don't experience any screen tearing. If you notice any screen tearing for whatever reason after enabling, make sure to enable VSync in your Nvidia control panel. During my gameplay sessions of BV5 and other various games, I didn't notice any screen tearing or input lag which is definitely a plus. I was honestly wowed when it comes down to the performance for the LG - 27UL600 while gaming. Overall, I have to say that although I am impressed because I don't have the LG UK monitor that my friend has; I wouldn't jump to purchase the LG UL monitor if you have the LG UK monitor. Reason being, I feel like both monitors are very similar and the UL is just a refresh of the UK. BUT! If you're looking for an excellent SDR monitor that has HDR support (although a bit lacking IMO), 4K, produces accurate colors, supports wide viewing angles and is from a reputable brand that can perform; I wouldn't hesitate to purchase the LG 27UL600-W. So it ultimately depends on what you currently have and if you want the upgrade. But at the end on terms of just the LG - 27UL600, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others that are on a search for a new monitor. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Quick Features & Specs --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution 5 ms response time 60 Hz refresh rate 27" antiglare LED monitor FreeSync Technology 2 HDMI and DisplayPort inputs 178? horizontal and vertical viewing angles 1,000:1 contrast ratio 350 cd/m2 brightness ENERGY STAR certified --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What's in the box --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LG 27UL600-W DisplayPort cable HDMI cable AC Adapter

    LG does it again!

    LG has a great track record of quality monitors that are priced very reasonably. The LG 27UL600-W does not disappoint. First off, the image quality is amazing. The 4K resolution is absolutely stunning. The color accuracy and viewing angles are top notch. The brightness is around 350-400 which is absolutely good enough to tolerate some sunlight coming in. The design is minimalist and has that characteristic LG look. It has very thin bezels and just looks great in any setting. I thought the HDR effect worked very well. It does make the colors "pop" more. This along with the wide color gamut really brought the colors to life. But, I will definitely say that it was annoying to use Windows 10 HDR mode. It did not seem to display the colors accurately. I preferred hooking up my Macbook instead. This is not LG's fault by any means. Windows 10 just has terrible HDR support. LG does provide an app installed via CD for Mac and PC for Onscreen Controls which is very useful. It allows you to have split screen controls. You can set picture parameters for certain applications. If I have to pinpoint some cons, the max refresh rate is 60 Hz but its to be expected at this price point. It is good enough for casual gaming but any more than that and I would recommend higher refresh rates. The stand is also not height adjustable which is annoying. All in all, a great monitor for everyday use!

    Great Monitor Almost Ruined by Bad W10 HDR Support

    I will start out by saying that I think this is a great 4K monitor and that most of the issues I've had are not related to the monitor itself, but the terrible HDR support built into Windows 10. If you're using this with a streaming device or a game console it will be smooth sailing, but PC HDR support just isn't where it needs to be right now. That being said, the monitor looks great displaying both HDR and SDR content and the image quality. The box includes the monitor, a stand, and some cables. I was happy to see that LG includes both HDMI and DVI cables in the box. I like the design of the monitor for the most part - the bezels are pretty thin and though I'm not completely sold on the U-shaped base, I do like it better than I thought I would. Looking through the manual it appears there are other variants that have a more adjustable base, but this one unfortunately just has vertical tilt, though there is a VESA wall mount on the back. Also on the back are 2 HDMI and 1 DisplayPort input, as well as a headphone port. Setting up the monitor was pretty straightforward until it came time to enable HDR. In Windows 10 you can enable HDR in the display settings, but doing so puts what I can only describe a weird bluish film over everything that'sn't HDR content. There's a slider in the settings that's supposed to correct this, but I was never able to find a setting that got the display anywhere close to where it was when HDR isn't enabled. I tried installing different drives and enabling different color profiles, but nothing seemed to help. In the end I think this is best left turned off most of the time. I found that 3rd party games will enable and display HDR on their own independent of the Windows setting, but Microsoft Store apps, Microsoft games (like Forza), and HDR content in web browsers all seem to be tied to the HDR being turned on in the Windows display settings, so any time you're going to be doing HDR through any of those you need to remember to turn the setting on or just constantly deal with it being turned on. It's frustrating to say the least especially because HDR content (colors especially) looks great on this monitor. Ultimately I don't think this is LG's problem - from what I've read it happens with every other HDR monitor too, but it's frustrating that this is where things are. I can happily say that my Xbox One X plays much nicer with this display and I've no complaints using the monitor with it. Adjustments can be made to the monitor via a 4-way click controller underneath the center of the monitor - I found that method to be pretty intuitive and the on-screen menus are pretty easy to navigate. LG also has some software you can download that will adjust the monitor parameters, but it seems more limited and not much easier than just using the controller on the monitor, so I uninstalled it. The settings that can be adjusted are also more limited in HDR and you don't get access to color on contrast controls. I had to play with the settings out of the box to get it to a place that I liked, but the adjustments for me were relatively simple. Overall I think this is a really good 4K monitor, even if you ignore the HDR completely. I just wish the support in Windows 10 was better.

    Excellent UHD Monitor!

    My needs were a little different than most in that I'm a casual gamer, but have started doing a lot of video processing and photo processing lately. I wanted a monitor that would support full UHD playback with accurate color representation and be a good general monitor without the ultra high end pricetag. The LG 27UL600 was an excellent fit. NOTE: This was being connected to a Windows 10 system, I7-7700, Nvidia 2060. The build quality is excellent. The LG uses a bezel-less form factor and feels solid coming out of the box. The stand is a thin 'U' shape that takes up very little deskspace. I wasn't sure about the stand initially, but it does seem to take up less space than the platform stands and seems quite stable. Also included are a HDMI cable, DisplayPort cable, power brick, and CD/quickstart guide. The included cables are a particularly nice touch. The monitor ONLY supports DP and HDMI inputs, and has an audio output for headphones or powered speakers. The power brick is a brick, not a wall wart, which is nice in that it will not block multiple outlets on a power strip. A mini joystick in the center at the bottom of the monitor doubles as an on-off switch and menu navigator. I had to grope around to find it initially, it's recessed a bit towards the back of the monitor. The menu system was intuitive and easy to navigate and initial setup went very quickly. One very, very nice feature is that the color schemes are not fixed, you can adjust them to suit your taste and needs. Performance is absolutely excellent! The image is sharp all the way to the corners, color saturation and accuracy are both excellent. The 27UL600 is very bright, with excellent blacks even in SDR mode. Which is good, because Windows 10 HDR support doesn't work very well yet. Video performance is stellar, with excellent picture quality on video playback and editing. The high resolution allows video editing frame by frame without image reduction, reducing video artifacting and errors. Although I'm not a avid game, I noticed no blurring playing games (eg, Witcher 3) at high frame rates and the monitor was very sharp for both gaming and office applications. Make sure you enable freesync/gsync even though the monitor is fixed at 60hz; it will help prevent frame tearing. As for office applications, the UHD resolution and 27" screen let you view an amazing amount of data at once; it's really quite surprising home much more usable screen space it provides over a 1080P monitor. This is a very impressive UHD monitor. If you're thinking of making the leap to a 4K monitor, the LG 27UL600-W should definitely be at the top of your list to consider.

    Impressive SDR picture (so-so HDR)

    LG's 27UL600-W monitor is a crisp, clear display with excellent brightness and viewing angles. @@@@@@@@ Full disclosure: the unit that I am reviewing here was provided by LG in exchange for my honest opinion. @@@@@@@ I've found it to be a pleasure to use as my main computer display for about a week. The inclusion of DisplayHDR 400 support is nice, but the "standard dynamic range" (SDR) picture quality is the real reason for which I'd recommend this display. I found the small amount of required assembly (for the stand) to be trivial. It's worth noting that the included monitor stand, while very easy to assembly, also has a very limited range of motion. The stand mounts to a slightly protruding mounting point at the rear bottom edge. The stand itself is fixed height and does not rotate, but does tilt forward and backwards by a small amount. The limited out-of-the-box ergonomics are a touch disappointing, but the monitor also includes common VESA 100 mounting holes for a wall or desk mount. After trying the included stand, I attached the monitor to a gas-spring desk mount suitable for monitors up to 27". Although the protruding mounting point for the included desk stand didn't seem to be removable, it also didn't hinder using it with my articulating desk mount. The monitor has a typical assortment of ports - 1 DisplayPort (1.4) and 2 HDMI (2.0) connections. These are pretty much the latest and greatest standards for display connection, and if you want to get the best picture quality, you'll also need to make sure any adapters or cables you plan to use are capable of 4K at 60 Hz. LG does include both a DisplayPort and HDMI cable in the box that they guarantee will support the full resolution and fastest 60 Hz refresh rate, but you may still need an adapter for Mini DisplayPort or USB-C if your computer happens to use those connectors. My one frustration during set-up turned out to be the fault of an HDMI adapter that didn't support 4k at 60 Hz; on my MacBook Pro, I was unable to switch to any scaled Retina resolutions. Since a DisplayPort connection to the same computer showed those modes, I suspected the HDMI adapter and confirmed it was the culprit by purchasing a new, name-brand USB-C to HDMI adapter. All expected modes were available with the new adapter in place. So, I guess take it from me, especially if you're a Mac user: double-check your adapter compatibility. Of course, this is hardly a problem I can fault LG for, as every 4K 60 Hz monitor has the same issue. To LG's credit, the supplied cables seem to be good quality and work just fine for me. Once mounted and connected, the 27UL600 "just worked" for me without needing to directly install any drivers. LG does include a pair of utility programs that you can elect to install: OnScreen Control, and Dual Controller. The former provides access to monitor settings without needing to use the monitor's physical, joystick-like controller; the latter allows for remote-control of a second PC over your network. I personally found neither to be essential, though the OnScreen Control does offer quick access to picture adjustments plus per-application display settings. Dual Controller could be a handy tool for some users, but I prefer using a HDMI 2.0 KVM switch for controlling multiple PCs in my home office. @@@@@@@@ By the way, this monitor had no noticeable issues working with the KVM switch). The picture quality of the 27UL600 strikes me as among the best of any monitor I've used (if not the best). Certainly, the 4K resolution helps in that regard (this is the first 4K display I've used with a personal computer). The screen is also nice and bright. I felt the default color settings were balanced and good looking. It's not an OLED display, so anyone looking for deep blacks won't find that here. @@@@@@@@ Since this monitor only supports DisplayHDR 400, it does not have local backlight dimming for portions of the screen. @@@@@@@ The backlight appeared very uniform to me, with no light leak around the edges. Viewing angles are excellent, due to the IPS technology. The HDR support was unfortunately not additionally impressive beyond the already good SDR picture - neither in streaming HDR sample videos nor in the one PC video game I own that supports HDR. Again, this is not too surprising to me, as DisplayHDR 400 is only the most basic HDR spec. But don't get me wrong - I'd rather have the support for it than not. About the only feature I missed on the 27UL600-W (compared with other monitors I've used) is a built-in USB hub. However, this does not detract from my overall impression of the product. I think using this 4K display has really spoiled me. It looks great to me, and I'dn't hesitate to recommend it. The downsides are relatively inconsequential in my eyes: the included stand is a little basic (though LG makes sibling models with an adjustable height base) and implementation of a more advanced spec of DisplayHDR would probably have made the HDR support "pop" a bit more. I've had good experience with all of the LG LCD panels I've owned and used in the past, and this one has been no exception so far. For the price, I think this is a very good display to consider.
