Disappointing (with updates)
The monitor broke after 2 days of use. It now flickers every 6.5 seconds. I swapped cables and ports. No avail. Plugged different computers into it. Same result. So I submitted an online support ticket to LG. Let me say this: bad things happen. I’m not overly irritated the monitor broke. No producti...

​. If your monitor must have an LG panel, you would likely be better off with the *LG 27GL83A-B.*. It is unknown to me why this model has a price hike over the older unit, as basically everything on this refreshed model could be seen as a downgrade. ​.
Great gaming monitor!
Don't cheap out and buy the $250 Viotek IPS like I did. Spend the extra money and buy this monitor. It's free of backlight strobing, it has very minimal IPS glow, it has FreeSync and supports G-Sync, and the picture is fantastic. It's a near perfect monitor, but there were a few things I had to do f...

Great visuals, hardware may be an issue.
The media could not be loaded. There is a lot of hype surrounding this monitor, and for the first few hours that I used it, I believed it. The visuals were crisp and the refresh rate helped make many of my games feel and look amazing. The problem came a few hours after use, presumably when the monit...

This one is going to be hard to beat
For under $380 I think it's going to be hard to beat this monitor. Especially since the 27GL850 is consistently out of stock. For the price you are getting: - Essentially the same panel as the 27GL850 - Excellent response time + motion handling - Officially certified by Nvidia G-Sync support - FreeS...

Completely lost on buying a monitor as a gift for a gamer
As others have said, 1440p, 144hz IPS is certainly a monitor she will be pleased with. I personally recommend the LG 27GL83A .

It's great but know that you're buying an IPS panel at 2K
Disclaimer for fair context here: This is my first true 144hz, 1440p, IPS panel experience. Up until now, I've only ever had descriptions and seen photos (on less than ideal monitors) of what to expect. So my review here may almost certainly be biased in terms of extremes for both pros and cons. Wit...

I currently have an LG 27GL83A gaming monitor. At the time of buying this, I was heavily into gaming which made me buy the monitor.
Would have been perfect but....
I was so happy to upgrade to an IPS/1440p/144hz monitor. This monitor is great, but I don't know if it was just my bad luck or LG's quality analysis is just horrible. At USD$380.00 I expect a perfect monitor, but I got one with a pixel stuck in green. It is most noticeable in dark scenes and I hate ...
