size

Reviews around size (4.59 of 5)

  • For the price, this is a fantastic display, but the slight IPS glow is why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5.Another thing to note, I was worried that 4k on a monitor this size would be overkill for gaming
  • I like the size and the image quality is good!So far no problem!I really wish it has a built-in speaker!
  • I would recommend this to anyone looking for a decent sized high quality 4K monitor.
  • But if you are a console gamer I highly recommend this monitor because 60 hz is as good as a console can get and the 4k looks great with the PS4 pro and Xbox1X/S
  • Amazing picture quality, great size, good stand,....and then the quality showed itself.

quality

Reviews around quality (4.27 of 5)

  • Cons:-the display is made from plastic and that feels like it will easily get scratched if not careful-brightness is low, id say the brightest is just adequate enough for everyday use-bc of the stand shakes a bitI'd
  • When I mirror my MacBook Pro to this monitor the quality is perfect
  • Great picture quality, brightness, contrast, and colors
  • I was blown away by the picture of a less expensive 2018 4K HDR LG 27UK600-W that was sitting next to several other non-HDR monitors (displaying non-HDR content) in a local BB store.
  • The issue here I think is that the os gets confused as to what's connected to the computer so the usbc port is displaying somewhere in a parallel monitor universe and something within the config needs to be reset

Reviews around price (4.26 of 5)

  • The monitor is a good price and it has delivered flawlessly
  • Excellent gaming monitor at a cheap price.
  • This is a beautiful 27" 4K IPS monitor at a reasonable price

  • I was blown away by the picture of a less expensive 2018 4K HDR LG 27UK600-W that was sitting next to several other non-HDR monitors (displaying non-HDR content) in a local BB store.
  • but perhaps that’s just down to my inexperience with complex display settings
  • Great monitor that goes well with my MacBook 2019, nice picture, not as good as a retina display but nothing is as good as a retina display, however, this one is good enough
  • For the price, this is a fantastic display, but the slight IPS glow is why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5.Another thing to note, I was worried that 4k on a monitor this size would be overkill for gaming

gaming

Reviews around gaming (3.69 of 5)

  • Pros: Beautiful image, amazing colors and brightnessCons: Terrible gaming monitor
  • makes it frankly not a good gaming monitor for most types of games
  • I definitely recommend getting this monitor if your looking for a good 4k monitor that's good for ps4/xbone as well as 60fps 4k gaming on PC
  • Other than a little backlight bleed, it's a great gaming monitor for the price.
  • I was blown away by the picture of a less expensive 2018 4K HDR LG 27UK600-W that was sitting next to several other non-HDR monitors (displaying non-HDR content) in a local BB store.

hdr

Reviews around hdr (3.69 of 5)

  • My current diagnosis:Annoying that it keeps warning to use only the supplied cables, which can not support HDR and 10bit or just 10bit without an occasional blink (3-4 times a day)
  • The hdr 10 is fake without it red is orange it isn’t true 4K in hdr mode all around a lie of a product the only thing it has is response time it
  • The fact that this monitor only supports srgb means that any hdr won't look good
  • I wanted a monitor that looked as good as my samsung 4k hdr QLED TV
  • x coming from a pretty solid mom HDR 4K Samsung monitor

stand

Reviews around stand (3.48 of 5)

  • Very disappointed because I enjoyed the picture quality, but ultimately the monitor that doesn’t fall down is more valuable to me than the one that has better image quality but a flimsy stand.
  • Adjustable stand is fantastic - now that I have it, I would not buy a monitor without it
  • The stand was easily adjustable to get the perfect height
  • It fell off the desk and broke the screen two days after I got it because the stand is so unstable.
  • The bezel is nearly non existent and the stand is incredibly adjustable

bleed

Reviews around bleed (2.30 of 5)

  • Even with a truly "black" image fullscreen or loading screens its just a dark grey with some visible back light bleeding in some areas, but the backlight bleeding near the edges aside that seems to be pretty varied item to item, the darkness of the screen itself is just terrible for many things
  • Have tried several well known branded cables, same result, and while my GPU isn't the latest, the EVGA GTX 1070 FTW does have three true DP 1.4 ports, as well as one HDMI 2.0(b) and some version of DVI-D which I've not used
  • I am a casual Battlefield 1 (FPS) gamer, and my K/D ratio as well as the overall number of K's has improved with this monitor.
  • That said, I've had weird screen flickering problems and corner back-light bleed on both of my 650's
  • Like others, I'm not real happy with the flash lighting or backlight bleeding even with brightness all the way down

  • Per LG CS, LG does not recommend using cables that converts one format to another
  • if you just need a 4k ips panel and you're on a tight budget, this is great for value, it does have some negatives but for the price if say it's worth buying
  • My OLED65B7A TV requires 3 operations though (click, up, click), but i usually use the remote.3) it does not play well with windows 10 and another monitor (dual extended display).
  • Some older monitors do not support HDCP 2.2 but this one does so all 4k content is compatible with the monitor

input lag

Reviews around input lag (1.60 of 5)

  • I knocked off one start because of the input lag and HDR
  • I bought this monitor after using a Benq rl2755 for the longest time and haven’t noticed any more input lag than before
  • When the trading day is done I can watch Netflix full screen flicker free 4K 60 hz or use it for photo editing with an image as sharp as my MBPr display .Brightness, split screens and on-screen adjustments, in every way superior to the Samsung U28E590D monitor that I bought last week and have already returned.
  • and I can tell the performance difference in this monitor from my tv with the low input lag and the free sync tech.
  • , the 4K looks tremendous, and I have no issues with input lag.

unit

Reviews around unit (1.54 of 5)

  • This unit came broken, with half screen dark.
  • Cons:- Owned the unit for less than 24 hours and it developed a small group of dead pixels in the center of screen.
  • If your defective unit is doomed to break, at least do it before the return window closes.
  • Whats worse, I have to go through the repair service twice!Long story short, my unit was having an issue where the monitor will not lit after quick/abrupt shutdowns
  • Great unit from LG
