Awesome upgrade from 1080p TN panel

LG Ultragear 27GL850-B 27" 2K QHD 2560 x 1440 1ms GTG 144Hz 2 x HDMI DisplayPort USB 3.0 Hub AMD FreeSync NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible HDR 10 Nano IPS Gaming Monitor
LG Ultragear 27GL850-B 27" 2K QHD 2560 x 1440 1ms GTG 144Hz 2 x HDMI DisplayPort USB 3.0 Hub AMD FreeSync NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible HDR 10 Nano IPS Gaming Monitor

Pros: • Minimal blacklight bleed: even in a dark room (keep in mind this is influenced by the viewing angle as well, it gets much worse at a slight angle) • Nice picture preset • Clean design, easy menu navigation • Fits nicely on a smaller desk (only 27" deep) • No dead pixels on arrival • Very bright, have to keep my brightness around 40

Cons: • '1ms' GTG response is a marketing gimmick and is not usable (as seen from many reviews online) nevertheless it has one of the fastest response times among similar IPS panels (4-5ms). • HDR is not usable, it barely meets the standard as is. • Lacks USB-C connection • 1 year warranty (reason for 4-star review)

Overall Review: • It is an expensive monitor and it took me quite awhile to get used to 27" 1440p panel (coming from a 24" Acer GN246HL) however at the end of the day gaming on this monitor is fantastic. Make sure you have a beefy gpu to fully utilize its capability (i.e. something better than a 1060 6GB).

Great memory, working as expected.

Pros: - Love the design - Performs above expectations

Cons: - None

Overall Review: - I would like to add additional memory in the near future but I do not see an option to order this ram in 'Classic Black' color? Any help would be appreciated.
