LG revealed several new monitors at CES earlier this year, in what proved to be the first and only live electronics showcase before COVID-19 hit. Since then, it has steadily rolled them out and the latest to reach the market is the 27-inch UltraGear 27GN950 model. It is the first 4K IPS LCD gaming monitor in the world, LG claims, to feature a 1 millisecond response rate.

The 27-inch UltraGear also features a 144 Hz refresh rate, which is now considered the minimum standard for a monitor to wear the ‘gaming’ moniker. Other key features include support for 98 percent of the P3 color gamut which means it can reproduce 1.07 billion colors. Brightness is rated at 400 nits (typical) while it also Nvidia G-Sync compatible which will reduce screen tearing by syncing with your Nvidia GPU frame rates.

As you might expect for a 4K gaming monitor with these sorts of specs, it is going to cost you – around US$800 to be exact. It is available for purchase now in markets across Europe, North America and Asia.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
