Very Nice Monitor
I've waited many, many years for a 27" monitor and I'm so glad I waited. This monitor is beautiful and very satisfying. I'm confident it will last many, many years so I can enjoy my PC and my years of photographs and videos of my families life. I'll be retiring in January of 2022 to enjoy my day by day retirement and life. LG thanks...

Great Monitor, can be more durable
I bought two monitors about a year ago and one broke, so I had to get a replacement, I tried to get it repaired thru warranty but it expired and LG wouldn’t help me so I had to buy another. All in all I like the monitors I hope it lasts more or double the warranty

Performs well but 0 reliability - Expect failures!
Picked up one of these with 2000 hours on the clock at a fair price last Christmas, it didn't even make it through February before developing the white screen problem. I was quoted £230 for a repair from LG customer service but have ended up fixing it myself for just pennies. MOSFET Q308 on the panel's T-CON board will eventually burn up and short circuit all 12v devices to ground, causing only the 5v backlight to remain on which is why it goes white when it fails. Same thing occurs on ASUS VG278s and other brands of monitors that use these AUO M270HTN02 panels. It can be remedied by replacing the faulty component with an A09T MOSFET, also checking for any faulty / open circuit components when they shouldn't be to prevent the replacement part from being instantly shorted / cooked, too. While the defect on the panel's T-CON board isn't necessarily LG's fault, don't expect any support at all unless you're willing to pay big bucks for it, much more than the cost of a good, brand new (and likely much more reliable) 240Hz display. This MOSFET tends to only die after the warranty period ends, which itself is far too short for such a flawed product. It's quite a shame because when it's working fine, it's a pretty decent performing monitor and I enjoyed all the extra goodies and features it's software has built in.
