If you are in search of an affordable 27-inch 1440p monitor, you are in luck as LG is selling the excellent UltraGear 27GL83A-B for 17% off. With the discount, the price falls to US$249.99 as compared to the retail price of US$299 (via camelcamelcamel).
Fortunately, the UltraGear 27GL83A-B is a top-notch gaming display that ticks almost all the boxes. It boasts an IPS panel with an advertised 1 ms response time, 144 Hz refresh rate, and 99% coverage of the sRGB color gamut. The display also supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) technologies like AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-SYNC to reduce tearing.
Now the question is: How well does the LG UltraGear 27GL83A-B actually perform?
According to the RTINGS’ review of the monitor, the UltraGear 27GL83A-B is a stunning gaming display, as it delivers low input lag of about 4 ms, a fast 144 Hz refresh rate, and a quick response time. The panel also gets fairly bright with 340 nits of measured SDR brightness. The LG UltraGear 27GL83A-B also produces fairly accurate colors as it covers 95.1% of the sRGB and 75% of Adobe RGB per RTINGs.
RTINGS' biggest criticism about the display is the low contrast ratio of 894:1 which makes blacks appear gray in dimly lit rooms. So, if you want a higher contrast panel, a VA gaming monitor would serve you better.
All in all, the LG UltraGear 27GL83A-B is an outstanding 27-inch 1440p gaming display especially when you factor in the currently reduced price.
