LG 27GP850-B
The LG 27GP850-B is an impressive 27 inch monitor with a 1440p IPS screen. The first true replacement to the very popular LG 27GL850-B and LG 27GN850-B, it delivers an excellent gaming experience. It has outstanding low input lag and a great selection of gaming features, including black frame insert...

Perfect for PC and Xbox Series X
I bought this after getting a 27GL850 and it had stuck pixels that you could see on every dark background, so I sent that one back and got this one. So far this monitor is beyond amazing. No dead or stuck pixels that I can see. No color shift on white backgrounds. There is a small amount of IPS glow...

I have been looking out for a better monitor than my current ASUS VG248QE (1080p 144Hz TN panel), and finally saw the LG 27GP850 drop to a compelling price because of Black Friday: 417 dollars (usually it's around 495-594 dollars in my country). I do know my current PC with Intel Core i7 4790K and GTX 770 2GB is quite limited for a 1440p monitor. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 2GB tops out on 1440p 120Hz through displayport.
[Monitor] AORUS FI27Q-P 27" 165Hz 1440P G-Sync/Freesync IPS - $269 (Lowest price ever)
The absolutely maddening thing about trying to buy a monitor...I FINALLY bit the bullet on my 1440p monitor of choice (LG 27GP850-B) and got a good deal on it. Then this pops up for $60 less.
4 monitors, Inconsistent Quality
UPDATE 7/16/2021 I wanted to write a more organized review for others who are considering to purchase this monitor. FYI, I've had multiple LG monitors and TVs. They all worked flawlessly except this one. 1st monitor (DEFECT): (issue 1) Noticeably bluer on the right than left side of the monitor. Tes...

Hello everyone, I’m planning on purchasing a new 1440p monitor for my home PC. I have my eye on the LG 27GP850 and the MSI MAG274QRF-QD. I’ve checked reviews and they seem to be the fastest and most feature rich in the same price category. Where I’m from they cost the same, about 600 USD, so price is no deciding factor.
Is IPS glow inevitable?
LG is releasing new IPS monitors with an ATW polarizer and a renewed focus on native contrast this year, but so far they're the only ones. They have not said if the color uniformity issues from before have been resolved, so we'll see once they start shipping the new models. But for your case, if you got a replacement on your 27GP850 and you're happy with the glow, then just don't worry about it. If your replacement isn't bad, then you'll never see it in 99% of content and you'll probably soon forget about it.
Possibly my worst purchase this decade
- Monitor takes 7 seconds to turn up and shows a useless animation during that time. - Then it will wait a few seconds to show you a notification with some controls information. - Then after a few more seconds it will pop the name of the currently connected input (HDMI1) with an annoying slide anima...

Least “risky” 1440p monitor?
I just got the new lg 27gp850 and it was the first time I got a panel with decent bleed. I love it so far and have no issues. Love the 180hz on it - can definitely feel a difference compared to 144hz. 240 still feels nicer, but this is good enough for me right now.
