What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful picture Compared to the other monitors that I looked at and was considering, the LG stood out as being the best. Price was a secondary factor

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Deceptive Feature List, NOT 75hz at 1920x1080 I bought this monitor as a fairly priced IPS with a decent frame rate for games and digital art. The colour clarity for the latter is great but 1920x1080 at 75hz refresh rate is a lie. 1920x1080 is only 60hz and to achieve 75hz you must go down to 1280x1024. To even discover this fact you must dig deep in the owner's manual. Very deceptive, poor form. Otherwise it is a perfectly adequate monitor with good depth of colour for everyday use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect monitor My old monitor was too small and was fading and its colors were not accurate. This was a problem since I do some video editing. But, I could not afford to replace it. Then, I unexpectedly received $200 and immediately starting investigating which 27 inch monitor to buy and after reading all the reviews, I chose the LG 27 inch. I was thrilled after hooking it up and looking at some images I had worked on the previous day. Fortunately, I had saved the originals because now I could see the images in their correct color and brightness. It was now so much easier to edit video and images with the bigger screen size. I could not have asked for a better monitor at any price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Expected I've used this monitor a limited number of times over the past month or so. The picture quality is more than sufficient for my needs, and the setup was super easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all rounder I bought the monitor November 2018. Im very happy with it. Great for my college work and works great with my PlayStation 4. Highly recommend the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good screen for it's price The screen resolution could be better. The OnScreen control is nice, but the screen split function is not handy. You can only personalize it to a certain point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good at a reasonable price I bought this monitor in early January and am very happy with it. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that the buttons on the bottom of the screen are not intuitive.
