Great Monitor 5/14/2020 9:17:25 AM

Pros: No Backlight Bleed
No Flicker
Extremely minimal IPS Glow
Great color(Once calibrated)
144hz runs well, Overdrive works great
Great Contrast, Blacks are good for an IPS(AHVA)
Versatile stand

Cons: Edit: This issue has been solved - Slight ghosting in Outerworlds at 1440p but I dont think this is the monitor's fault, using 5700xt(was able to somewhat mitigate this)
Out of the box the color and calibration is absolutely atrocious but this can be easily fixed so shouldnt be considered
Not for competitive gamers, response time is a little slow
2 Stuck Pixels near the screen edges
No Freesync Premium

Overall Review: I went through three LG 27GL83A-B's trying to get one with minimal or no backlight bleed and little IPS Glow but I kept seeing the BLB every time I set them up. I had my eye on this monitor but the Refresh rate being Higher than the LG, I was a little turned off by it. I decided to pull the trigger cause I was sick of waiting for a good LG and I am pretty happy I did. I was at first disappointed because the color is total trash out of the box but spending a few days calibrating it I gotta say it's a whole new experience, the monitor is just phenomenal. I play a lot of Tarkov so I was somewhat worried that an IPS wouldn't do the darker areas justice but I've had no problems with that and in Overwatch/Heroes of the Storm the colors are vibrant, Dark Souls 3, the Witcher 3, Skyrim, they have never looked better or played so well.

For the ghosting I mentioned, I had never updated my x570 chipset drivers, once I did that the ghosting was almost completely eliminated so it really did have nothing to do with the monitor.

You don't want this monitor if you are going to be doing hardcore competitive FPSing, I can notice the response being a bit slow in Tarkov, it's minimal but I came from a TN so it is a bit noticeable, there have been a few times where I know I would have lived if I was on my old TN. This slower response time is advertised so I feel this should not knock the rating down.

No Freesync Premium but if you're looking for a monitor with good HDR you probably wont be checking this price point anyway.

I would normally replace it because of the 2 stuck pixels but I won the panel lottery hard with zero BLB and almost no IPS Glow and would rather not test my luck.

Aside from the 27GL83A-B, I dont think there is a better bang-for-buck Freesync IPS out at the moment. Every other 1440 144hz Freesync IPS at this price point that I have looked into is riddled with problems, and even though the LG 27GL83A-B is supposed to be THE monitor to get at this price point, I couldn't get one worth looking at. This monitor is high quality and great to look at but if you are into super competitive games and still want an IPS you'll probably wanna steer clear of this one. For my uses I am overall really satisfied with my purchase and I'm probably gonna get another one as soon as they're in stock again. If you're on the fence I'd go read tftcentral's review, it made me give it a try.

Fantastic Monitor 5/13/2020 8:03:38 AM

Pros: -Perfect size for this resolution. Better pixel density than my 1080p at 24"
-Refresh rate and Freesync work phenomenally well with my 5600XT. I'm not usually getting the full 144fps at 1440p on ultra settings, but usually turning a few things down from ultra to high gets me in to the low 100s, and with Freesync that is plenty good enough for me
-Others may have had issues with colors out of the box, but mines looks great and required no calibration
-Surprisingly low backlight bleed for an IPS monitor with bezels this thin. There is some there, to be sure, but far better than other IPS monitors I've seen that cost double what this monitor did

Cons: -Dead pixel(s). There are two pixels in the very top left corner that only show black/red. I've tried to unstick them but nothing helped. The pixels are so small on this screen and they are so out of the way that I hardly notice them. Could I have made a stink with Newegg or Nixeus, or tried to process a replacement through my credit card company? Yeah, but I'd just be playing the lottery. Considering Nixeus's warranty covers 3 or more dead pixels, and other companies have warranties that don't kick in until 10+ dead pixels, I'll consider myself lucky and keep an eye out in case any others die during the warranty period.

Overall Review: This is by far the nicest monitor I have ever purchased. It looks great, the bezels pretty comparable to the last 2 monitors I have owned, and I'm a big fan of 1440p resolution for gaming/work instead of 4K. Next time I'm due for an upgrade, I will definitely check Nixeus first.

Just great 5/8/2020 7:18:21 AM

Pros: Refresh rate
IPS
2k
All the stuff

Cons: No hdr?

Overall Review: You can spend a lot more for monitors that will be barely noticeably better. Until they come out with a good oled or microled, save some money and get this one. It has it where it counts.

Beautiful picture, very bright and vibrant 5/6/2020 11:39:39 AM

Pros: - 1440p, 144hz, IPS panel, 4ms (you won't find this combination of specs anywhere else at this pricepoint).
- Beautiful and bright picture quality.
- No dead or stuck pixels (at least with mine).
- Came with a DisplayPort cable.
- Very nice solid heavy stand (tilts, rotates, turns, and raises up/down).

This is a pro for me: Others might debate this, but I like having integrated speakers. I know they aren't high quality speakers... BUT if you are like me and use headphones 99% of the time, you don't want to have a pair of speakers sitting on your desk collecting dust just for that 1% of the time when you want to play something out loud. Some cheap built-in speakers are just what I need and they allow me to keep the desk as clear as possible.

Cons: No cons experienced yet, unless you consider "being out of stock" a con. It's disappointing to see that this line is now out of stock after purchasing it just last week. It seems they are out of stock everywhere, although maybe it's due to the pandemic. I really hope the mfr continues this model because it's great, and at a really good price.

Overall Review: For gaming purposes, this resolution 1440p (2560x1440 a.k.a. WQHD) is the perfect resolution. It's better than both 4K (3840x2160 a.k.a UHD) and 1080p (1920x1080 a.k.a "Full HD") and this is why:
- 1440p has nearly twice (1.8x) the pixels of 1080p. This is crucial in making out details at a distance.
- 4K is too many pixels for current gen cards to achieve good framerates.

If you purchase a 4K monitor, you will likely need to drop your resolution down when playing games. Here's the catch: If you have to lower the resolution on a 4K monitor, you have 2 options: 1440p or 1080p. HOWEVER, you need to use 1080p (an evenly divisible resolution) if you want to avoid interpolation. If you use 1440p (not evenly divisible) on a 4K monitor, images will seem soft and blurry due to interpolation.

I would NOT be happy if I purchased a 4K monitor, but had to play games at 1080p. I would rather purchase a 1440p monitor and play games at 1440p.

Nice monitor = Happy Camper! 5/4/2020 4:53:23 PM

Pros: Have now bought 2 of these monitors. Bought one for myself a couple weeks ago and decided to get one for my son's birthday. He does a lot more gaming than I do and he's loving it so far. Great resolution, perfect size, excellent colors (once tweaked) and the price for performance is absolutely outstanding.

Cons: Stand is a teensy bit wobbly but I really don't bump my desk or touch it while I'm working so it's fine.
OSD is meh, but the second one was a lot easier once I got the hang of it.

Overall Review: The shipping company beat the tar out of the box, but its tough enough and it's packed well enough that there hasn't been any issues yet.
Would highly recommend this monitor

Better than the price would suggest! 4/26/2020 1:40:55 AM

Pros: Good picture. Colors are a bit off, but I was able to get a good calibration for it off an online review at CustomPCReview that got it as close as possible. G-Sync works very well with it despite it not being on the official supported monitor list. You can monitor the refresh rate in the OSD, and even make the OSD mostly transparent so you don't have it blocking what you're doing. You can also move the OSD around. No noticeable blur at 120hz. Works fine with HDMI 2.0 consoles, too.

Cons: Menus are a bit weird and the button layout isn't the most friendly. There's some backlight bleed on the right side of the display, but it's not terrible-- it's mildly annoying for me at worst. Your mileage may vary there. Can't turn off automatic input switching. I'm told blur is noticeable at 144hz, but I haven't tried it.

Overall Review: Okay, I've only had this monitor up and running for two days, but I have to level with you-- G-Sync+MAME is awesome. Being able to play Mortal Kombat in its original 54.7Hz form is incredibly cool, and getting up to 144hz depending on what I want to play PC-native is a good thing too. This fits in the sweet spot between 1080p and 4K-- you don't need a super-high-end card to take advantage of this display at its native resolution of 2560x1440.

In other words, if you need a good yet cheap monitor with >60Hz and G-Sync/FreeSync, this is a good option to look at. I'm very happy I went with this one.
