    Uses the exact same panel as the legendary LG 27GL850 but without the USB hub making it $50 cheaper! The 27GL850 is easily one of the best, if not the best, 27" 1440p gaming panel. It matches or exceeds other monitors in clarity of motion (grey to grey response times) and color accuracy at a sub $500 price level (the Viewsonic Elite XG270QG, ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ, and Gigabyte Aorus FI27Q-P are all $600 or more at the time of this review - and shamefully that Gigabyte model is the third of a product line that didn't actually add DisplayPort 1.4 until that Q-P model). Anyone looking for a premium gaming monitor should look no further as not only is it the best panel, it's at the best price by far. Still can't believe I got this at $449 when the actual 27GL850 (last year's model) is extremely hard to find and going for upward of $600 as well. If I had the extra money, I would buy two more of these.

    I bought two of these 27-GN850’s and got them installed about a week ago. These replace 2 22” Dell monitors, so the larger size is definitely a change - and a welcome one at that. The screens are sharp and bright. There’s a very small amount of back-light bleed when blacks are present in the corner, but not anywhere near enough to bother me at all. I like that the monitors support Display Port and 2 HDMI’s. I use my Surface Laptop 3 for both work and pleasure, through a Surface Dock 2 and to each monitor via USB-C to Display Port cables. I also run my Xbox Series S through a sound bar, then to the left monitor via HDMI - all is mostly good. I couldn’t get my Xbox to force 1440p at all (regardless of refresh rate), even though the monitor supports 1440p. The monitor does accept 4K signal, though, so I have my Xbox running at 4K-60hz in the settings. I would chalk this up as an Xbox issue, not a monitor issue. My biggest issue is that the included monitor stands are so ridiculously huge and awkward that they really don’t work well for a standard PC desk. You can see in the second picture that the majority of the back of the stand is actually hanging off my desk. Good thing there’s a wall there to keep it from falling. It was either that or have the monitors leaning off the front of the the desk and risk them tipping over off the front. Again, HUGE stands. I highly recommend either having a large desk with a good surface area or figure out another way to mount the monitors on maybe a VESA stand or some other solution. I may look into doing this myself in the near future. The stands aren’t wobbly, they’re heavy and sturdy, so I don’t worry about stability, they just take up A LOT more room than you’d expect. Oh, and don’t be fooled by the “adjustable height”, these stands don’t go down near as far as you’d hope - my Dell monitor stands put these stands to shame in that regard. Anyway, good monitors, crisp, clear, bright, great quality, heavy duty but awkward stands and good selection of inputs. Very satisfied. I recommend the monitors for the monitor aspect if you can deal with the stands being what they are or find a different mounting solution!

    I like everything about this monitor, picture quality, all the specs, etc, EXCEPT its stand is really bulky and long in the back. If you have a big single level desk then no worries, but I have a second shelf level on my desk and, since the stand is so bulky and long, I couldn't fit it on the main level. Way too close to my face and was pushing into my keyboard and mouse area. I had to put it on the shelf level and put the monitor down as low as it will go, which is still a little high and I have to look up a bit for. Might have to cut my shelf in half, still figuring out what I want to do. It feels unnecessary too, like there's just empty space in the stand so it's excess length and bulk is purely cosmetic and not functional. Other than that, performance wise it's great.

    Bought this monitor to replace the BenQ EX2780Q which is nearly identical on specs and price. My issue with the BenQ was the non adjustable stand and overall image quality. I don't like to tinker with settings too much but I could only find one usable color setting with it. This LG has 5 that I like and could use without issue. The stand is fully adjustable and well built. The whole monitor just looks great. I'm able to use 1440p at 120hz on the Xbox One X and everything is crisp and runs buttery smooth. I cannot recommend this monitor enough

    One of the best monitors I ever used. Going from 1080p to 1440p makes a world of difference. From 70hz to 144hz is like night and day too. With gsync I get no screen tearing. Works wonders with rtx3070 graphics card.

    This is my first monitor in over 15 years. I just built my first gaming P.C and combined with this monitor I am blown away at what I have been missing. The picture quality is amazing. I am comfortable that anyone who buys this will be satisfied. My only gripe is I wish this monitor had usb support like the other variant. But not a deal breaker.

    Love this monitor so much. I use to use 1080p 60hrz & now i cant ever go back to gaming on that. My only issue is it came with a dead pixel on the left side of the screen. Didnt feel like going through the trouble to get a replacement for something i never notice unless im looking for it.

    I purchased this monitor on an impulse buy, actually just wanting at the time to spend some money, well I have purchased several monitors from Winston Best Buy and I have returned some but I have kept the best ones that are the best in my opinion. I have two HP OMEN 27i Gaming Monitors and they are fantastic, and though I purchased this LG MONITOR at the time u didn't expect it to be and turn out to become my favorite all around monitor, its great, and now I am considering returning the two omens and purchase the same LG as this one and then purchase another LG except the other one I want is more expensive, bigger, wider, alot better, and it will be my main monitor!

    IPS glow is pretty "narly" and by that I mean there was a lot. On the left side. Other than that the contrast is low on paper but I think it is pretty good.

    I could have and would have loved this monitor. I love the IPS Panel that LG makes. Great monitor if you only want display port as an option for a computer/console. Most of the newer laptops are only coming with usb c or display port. Xbox only comes with hdmi. Do NOT buy for an Xbox or computer that doesn’t offer display port. My experience: My target was a monitor running 1440p at 120hz+ that would work with the Xbox series x and an MSI GS66 stealth as I’ll be targeting this for a pc build next year. The difference between the 27gn850 and 27gl850 aren’t huge but make a difference. With no usb 3 hub on the 27gn850, I wasn’t able to find a place to update the firmware on the monitor. I did tons of research on these models and could find anywhere that said the hdmi 2.0 connection only runs 100hz. People say turning off free sync allows it to go higher, but I found that to not be true. It’s disappointing that LG forces you to buy the “first oled with hdmi 2.1” to get 120hz on a display. They allow other manufacturers such as Dell and HP to use the same panel in the HP Omen 27i and the Dell Equivalent. I settled with the HP Omen 27i and couldn’t be happier.

    As a multi-functional user I will use thus monitor for watching movies, gaming, web browsing. Unfortunately this monitor fails with the backlight bleed. It is TERRIBLE! bottom left has a huge backlight bleed when watching dark scenes, the bottom left looks white/gray and the colors are off. This should NOT be the standard for a 450$ monitor! I thought maybe I got a bad unit so I ordered another one, And surprisingly the new unit has the same exact backlight bleed in the same spot!. Picture: top left and top right bottom right is not significant and can be ignored, however the bottom left is unacceptable.

    I bought the LG GN850 because of the phenomenal reviews that their NANO IPS panel has been receiving lately, and I will agree, it is a nice panel. No black smearing or ghosting, and screen tearing is minimal even without running G-Sync. An issue I have is that I had to make many adjustments to achieve rich black levels and proper colors, forcing me to utilize 3rd party software that the monitor itself would otherwise make impossible. The base and stand for this monitor is vastly improved from the GL850, and I highly prefer this one over the GL850's stand. It feels sturdy, has a nice splash of red on the bottom, it features a wider footing and much thicker trunk which all around feels quality. IPS glow is a guaranteed issue with ALL IPS panels, and this one has it too. If you purchase this panel, expect IPS glow. The particular monitor I received has IPS glow more on the center upper and lower areas of the screen, as opposed to the corners which I saw on a previous GL850 panel. The glow, however, is not terribly noticeable, and for this individual monitor I received, is generally not an annoyance. The UI is odd in terms of your freedom to change the picture settings. I say this because out of the 8 preset "game mode" settings, not a single one allows you to fully adjust all the picture quality settings. Out of the following, Brightness, Contrast, Sharpness, Gamma, Color Temp, R/G/B, Black Level, and DFC, you will always find one or more are greyed out, and you simply cannot adjust the image to your full liking, without utilizing 3rd party software. I find this unacceptable, on any image device, be it televisions projectors, and most definitely PC monitors. The power cable features a cord that connects to the PC and a separate box you plug into the wall and the other end from the PC's cord. I haver an issue with the cord that connects to the PC simply because it's extremely thin and feels cheap. Previous PC monitors I've owned features a thicker cable, and generally felt more quality. I'm also fearful that if a cat or dog got anywhere near the power cable, it would take no time at all to instantly cause damage. It's just so flimsy. My ultimate issue and biggest reason for giving the monitor I received a 2 star rating and poor score for quality. The monitor I received arrived in a damaged box, which alone would be no problem. However, once I opened the box I found that the foam bag placed around the monitor screen itself, was torn down the back. I thought this was odd as everything inside was tightly packed, and there's no way the bag tore in shipping. As I gently lifted the monitor out of the insert I turned it over, I looked over the screen itself and to my surprise, there were not 1, not 2, but 3 scratches on the screen itself. I grabbed electronics monitor safe cleaner and a microfiber cloth and tried to see if these scratches were superficial or just smudges, but no, they are legitimate scratches... I even swore one was a hair of some kind, but no... This is infuriating for something you bought brand new... I believe this happened in packaging on LG's side, as the contents inside the box and very snug in their places, there is no way this happened in shipping. This forces me to feel LG threw this monitor very carelessly into the box and sent it out with no regard for quality control. I've included pictures of the scratches. Overall: The monitor has a decent quality stand, great response time, pretty picture (with 3rd party software), a less than ideal UI, and cheaper components than other monitor's I've owned. If this monitor had arrived in good condition, as expected when buying a brand new product, I'd be very happy. But receiving a scratched up product is unacceptable...

    My unit came flawless no dead pixels and very minimal IPS glow which is expected. So far no other monitor for this price can beat this LG. Just buy it !!!! don't waste your time searching for other options this is it.

    Pros mentioned:
    Color, Price, Set up

    It's a pretty good monitor but i was expecting a little better. Super easy to set up. Mine can with two display ports and no hdmi cable. I am happy for that. I was using a 24 inch 165hz 1ms TN g sync monitor. Fantastic for competitive gaming that i mostly play. Battlefield, overwatch, paladins and cod warzone. i have a few story base games (offline) and playing them on a TN monitor was pretty bad. Colors washed out so i decided to buy a IPS nano. It came down to this LG ultragear 27 IPS nano monitor or the new alienware 34 ultrawide IPS nano. I finally pulled the trigger on this monitor. I honestly wish the colors poped more. I was using a 19 inch IPS samsung tv for $175 as a starter before i got a gaming monitor and wow did the colors pop. I was expecting somewhat the same experience with this monitor. It's not a bad screen and everything is super crisp. I tested out rise of the tomb raider, GTAV and borderlands 3. They all look great but had an issue with GTAV. I tried out the HDR but it was not really worth it in gaming. My monitor came with no dead pixels and light bleeding. I don't use the 1ms super feature because i have no interest on playing competitive on this monitor. So i am 5ms and no ghosting. Even thought the stand base is made out of plastic it's honestly pretty good. I have my ps4 pro on my desk so i will try god of war and dawn horizon. I bought patapon 1 and 2 remastered once i got this monitor. I am planning on building a rtx 3080 super pc and getting a ps5. So with a native freesync and a pretty good g sync feature this is good for pc and consoles. After 5 hours i yet to see a single screen tear. The control button is one small button on the middle bottom of the monitor. Its a toggle button so i am afraid it's going to give me problems in the future. So i will rarely use it. Overall for the price and the features are well worth it. The new IPS nano is a gimmick but i am happy i bought this monitor. LG is a brand you can trust.
