With a 3-side virtually borderless design and a stand with adjustable height, pivot, and tilt, the 27-inch LG Ultragear 27GP850-B sports 2,560 X 1,440 pixels, 1 ms reponse time, and a refresh rate of up to 165 Hz. Thanks to a 30% discount, it can be purchased on Amazon for US$299.99 instead of US$429.99.

Introduced at the end of April 2021, the 27-inch LG UltraGear 27GP850-B is a flat gaming monitor that belongs to a lineup "created from the ground up to give gamers the edge." It uses a Nano IPS display with 400 nits typical brightness, 1 ms response time, 165 Hz refresh rate, 98% DCI-P3 color gamut, and a generous resolution of 2,560 X 1,440 pixels. Those interested can acquire it from Amazon for just US$299.99 thanks to a 30% discount applied to the US$429.99 list price. On the other hand, LG US has this monitor listed for US$499.99, and currently discounted by US$150, so it can be acquired from them for US$349.99 (see the link above).

In addition to the highlights mentioned above, it should also be pointed out that the LG UltraGear 27GP850-B features support for both G-Sync and FreeSync Premium, the standard refresh rate can be pushed to 180 Hz via overclocking, and the stand comes with adjustable height, pivot, and tilt. However, those who want more when it comes to the freedom of setting up their office (or game room) should know that they can also use a standard VESA 100 X 100 mm mount to install this monitor as they wish. The list of connectivity options includes DP, HDMI, a headphone out jack, and USB 3.0 (downstream and upstream).

The LG UltraGear 27GP850-B ships alongside most cables needed, namely DP, HDMI, and USB 3.0 upstream. The USB 3.0 downstream and 3.5 mm audio cable can be purchased separately, if required.

On Amazon, the LG UltraGear 27GP850-B has a 4.6/5-star rating after 1,344 user reviews, of which 80% gave it a perfect score. LG US customers, on the other hand, only deem it worthy of 4.5 stars, but this score comes after only 227 reviews.
