set

Reviews around set (4.05 of 5)

  • As for response time, it seems universally accepted by the monitor community that the fast setting is adequate in preventing overshoot.
  • it has a response time setting, which lets you adjust the response time of the monitor (stick to fast, because the fastest setting introduces ghosting)
  • The fastest setting for response time does have "inverse ghosting" but the fast setting was super smooth
  • While this monitor advertises 1ms response times, thats not happening unless you use the fastest OC setting giving you severe inverse ghosting

display

Reviews around display (3.78 of 5)

  • It was a great LOOKING display; but I expect some Quality Control when I'm buying a $2k monitor and not to have a cheap fan buzzing in my face.
  • The monitor overall is a fantastic display and I personally really love the high refresh rate for gaming while having good color reproduction, and decent blacks in comparison to TN panels
  • I would easily recommend this monitor to anyone that wants a very sharp display that is not in your face gaudy with excessive RGB or "gamer" aesthetics
  • This display is not that bright, if you are looking for a really bright monitor

input lag

Reviews around input lag (3.01 of 5)

  • I don't use G-Sync or any adaptive sync because of the input lag
  • It is one of the best models to come out in 2019 and has all the things that I find important in a monitor: IPS, high refresh rate, 1440p rez, and g-sync compatible.
  • its blazing)Input Lag: Excellent (4.3 ms, one of the fastest 144Hz panels on the market)Refresh Rate: Good (144Hz, wish it were at least 165 Hz)Though 4k 120Hz panels have better picture quality, all have terribly slow response times and some with unacceptable input lag (looking at you Predator X27)
  • Then about the week of pre-order time they took down the LG info page on this monitor and released this with only g-sync compatible, no overclocking, and no sphere-lighting.
  • I was worried that input lag may cause a negative impact on my gaming performance going to a 144hz IPS panel, but Im happy to say it did not

contrast

Reviews around contrast (1.97 of 5)

  • but I guess having a 27in 1440p 144hz VA panel already spoiled me with nicer contrast, colors, and
  • In games like Metro 2033 when going through pitch black rooms the IPS Glow, Back Light Bleed, and poor contrast become evident; corners of the screen will have what looks like white and orange clouds on them, the low contrast results in a Black Crush effect where most of the black content blends together in to a blob removing key details from the scene
  • This monitor has washed out colors, poor contrast, low brightness
  • The picture looked like it had way too much contrast, making photo-realistic games look almost cartoonish
  • But that brightness makes everything pop when there is stuff on the screen, and the contrast between white and a black box is nice
