Most Critical Review

Great specs but not so great image quality

LG 27'' UltraGear QHD 2560 x 1440 IPS 1ms 144Hz HDR Monitor with G-SYNC Compatibility
LG 27'' UltraGear QHD 2560 x 1440 IPS 1ms 144Hz HDR Monitor with G-SYNC Compatibility

Pros: - Really good price - High resolution - Fast response time

Cons: - Can barely make use of HDR, I don't recommend buying this monitor for HDR viewing (it's best not even using this feature) - Has bit of an IPS white glow on the 4 corners, mine is especially bad on the bottom left corner - Not very sharp display - White levels are way too strong - The factory calibration is really off - Not compatible with in game V-Sync (when both are on, causes lots of latency)

Overall Review: I owned a pretty old HP omen laptop before recently upgrading to a desktop and this monitor shines a very dim light compared to my old one in terms of quality. I spent lots of time going through forums like "Blur Busters" but there's nothing to help calibrate this monitor and redeem it. I don't recommend this monitor, unless you have a professional calibration kit. And are not planning to make use of the HDR.
