What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor - Fantasic Image I have had this monitor in my home office for about a year and am totally please with its performance with my MacBook Pro Retina

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal Clear Colors and Superb Picture Quality Really awesome picture quality and colours. I love the sleek slim design of the panel. Easy to set up and calliberated out of the box... was a simple plug and play. Scaling was correct and windows 8 looked and performed well. Only thing is.. if you are into real high end gaming... look for different monitor with higher refresh rate.. 60 hz is not enough and will be jittery. For other normal uses.. this is the best at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just buy it! I stare at this monitor between 5 and 6 hours per day. I love watching 4K content, the detail and colors are amazing. The viewing angles are excellent. I immediately replaced the stand with an adjustable arm and you should too. I have an Nvidia card so I've not taken advantage of the freesync technology. I have experienced some screen tearing while playing SWBF at 2K on low settings. I usually get between 50-60 FPS and I've been impressed with it even though it's not a VG monitor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some quirks. Excellent monitor in terms of detail, contrast, vividness, etc. Inputs could be expanded to include mini dp, dvi, etc. So in terms of performance, design and build quality (feels solid) I would recommend. Price is on par as well which drew me to this monitor. My gripe is the poor picture in picture and side by side setup. The software is very difficult to use in my eyes, awkward and is certainly not user friendy. Should be able to change this setting quick and easy .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Display Bought this monitor because of 4k and free sync to maximize my new gaming PC potential back in Nov of 16 and am happy to report no dead pixels. No issues at all it just keeps on kicking out awesome FPS and glorious colors. Actually have a second one in my shopping bag on newegg for dual screen. Great pricing and nice features for a 4k display.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost the Best Monitor Great monitor. I'm very happy with the purchase. The picture quality is amazing. It works great as long as you have the right GPU in your computer. The only monitor better than this is one with 120hz instead of the 60hz. The only real difference you'll noticing is when scrolling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor I bought this about three weeks ago and have been very pleased. Text is very sharp and the color and detail are very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color is great! Bought this several months ago while it was deeply discounted. I am so glad I did because you can't find it for the price I bought it at anymore--not even close. This monitor is great. I believe some complain about the stand being too wobbly, I don't know because I had it VESA mounted. The user interface is easy to operate. I love the joystick instead of the usual buttons most monitors use. My only complaint is the joystick will constantly blink a bright blue when your computer is off. It doesn't stop blinking unless you turn off the monitor. I wrote to LG and it looks like they took my advice (and probably the advice of others who complained) because I see a newer monitor they came out with no longer has a blue blinking joystick. It's just a solid black now, which is great change. My solution to the blinking joystick was to cover it up with electrical tape. Unfortunately, this means I'll have a tough time adjusting the monitor settings because then I have to take off the tape and then re-apply it once I'm done. Fortunately, adjusting monitor settings is typically a one-time deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful display I am a digital artist and need a large display with accurate color and high res. I was using my old iMac as a monitor for my macbookpro. Poor baby lost its display. So I researched and found the 27UD68 LG monitor with high reviews. I'll add mine! Set up easy. Just make sure your macbookpro is not too old, but that is easy to check on the LG site. Love this monitor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly, just as described Bought this as a Christmas to myself because Best Buy had them on sale. I replaced a 24" LED monitor and the first thing I noticed was the color really popped out. I am playing Skyrim SE and the picture is almost real. 4K IPS is a very nice feature. When using MS Word the white background is terrific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Monitor This is an excellent monitor. I purchased it on sale at Best Buy because the picture stood out from all of the other monitors on display. I am really enjoying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Ultra Hi Def I replaced my previous 27-in hi def monitor w/this LG 27UD68-P 27-Inch 4K UHD IPS Monitor with FreeSync immediately upon receipt from Fedex! I needed something to pair w/my new MSI Blade UHD VR compliant gamer, and I am definitely not disappointed! The definition and colors are clear, distinct and brilliant. I am a drone pilot, and process a lot of aerial videos. This display clearly out performs my previous HD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Monitor For Work & Play! I am a web designer & bought this monitor so I can have several windows & applications open on one monitor to make my workflow easier. The colour & resolution is beautiful and perfect for web developing. I am looking forward to my increased work productivity with this new tool. Watching movies and videos in 4K is awesome too! Great price, highly recommend this product. Trying to keep my son's gaming paws off this beautiful monitor, Lol!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Value and Quality As i was looking at UHD monitors, I was struck by the incredible price range for seemingly very similar feature sets; and I had thought at this price I should expect some compromise. I was so pleasantly surprised. Perfect color right out of the box, instant device recognition, sharp and beautiful image display and one of the nicest and easiest to use menuing systems on any monitor I have ever owned. I don;t have a lot of depth of experience with UHD monitors; but I am very pleased with my selection and would recommend without hesitation for any purpose, professional or otherwise.

The HDMI port is only 2.0. 2.0a is required for HDR, so it won't support it.
