In addition, the response time speed of 1ms GtG (gray to gray pixel transition) ensures that there’s no visible trailing behind fast-moving objects for a smooth fast-paced gaming experience. ports provided on the back of the screen which are reasonably easy to access, but there are none available on the sides of the screen for really quick use. OSD controls are OK not great it is easy to get confused if you don't use them often they have extra options for sound and some other control and it gets in the way of the main menu.

ViewSonic had added it to their XG270QG display which used the same Nano IPS panel as the 27GL850 and we had seen some issues with the blur reduction because of the backlight in that review. IPS technology: The latest IPS technology is built-in to our monitors that allows clear viewing from virtually any angle, as well as a screen splitter technology that allows for easy multitasking. Just like it’s the case with all IPS panel monitors, some IPS glow is noticeable, especially in dark rooms and dark scenes, but it’s manageable. PC gaming for instance will be much less of a system drain at 1440p than at 4K, allowing you to potentially push up to higher frame rates and use higher settings.

The default setup of the screen was reasonable as well, offering an accurate gamma curve and decent contrast ratio for an IPS panel. No real control over the LED back lighting unless you use the software and the monitor is connected to the PC VIA a USB cable which has never worked for me trying 5 different cables and all the ports on a very modern AM4 Gigabyte motherboard. This confirms some fairly relaxed calibration measures for the screen that have been achieved as it comes out of the factory. Never content to rest on its laurels, LG has upped the ante on that display with a full 4K, 144Hz IPS panel, DisplayHDR 600 certification, Nvidia G-Sync Compatibility, and more.

To be honest there weren’t many improvements over just our optimal OSD adjustments in the section above, and while that setup had a slightly different gamma curve, it avoided any banding at all. Due to the low static contrast ratio of the IPS technology, HDR is somewhat underwhelming, but at least you get a notable improvement over SDR. In this section for our reviews we look at the response time behaviour across the range of supported refresh rates and consider whether they are sufficient to keep up with the frame rate demands of the screen.

You’ll want to use DisplayPort to make the most of its feature set, but I liked that I could easily connect my Xbox One X and swap inputs when I wanted to put my feet up. We believe this must be related to the scaler used on this screen, as there’s no specific image sharpening modes on this model.

Gaming features include custom crosshair overlays and Black Stabilizer (improves visibility in darker games). If you set your resolution to 2560 x 1440 the image still looks very sharp and clear, and doesn’t blur the text too much like most 4K screens do when scaling. Probably not an issue here though as the screen can accept a 4K input anyway and natively display it. Tilt adjustment enables a user to change the viewing position of the display, creating a more comfortable view of the screen.It offers buttery-smooth performance thanks to its G-SYNC compatibility, 144Hz refresh rate, low input lag, and rapid pixel response time speed while its Nano IPS panel ensures accurate and vibrant color quality. According to Nvidia, this rating means that it’s guaranteed to play without artifacts, and in my testing, it performed flawlessly.

The calibrated results were excellent, and hardware calibration support was very welcome for great control, flexibility and accuracy in setup, even beyond colour managed workflows and for gaming and multimedia.

For HDR (High Dynamic Range) content, the LG 27GN950 monitor also gets a boost in peak brightness to over 600-nits for more intense and vivid highlights thus earning VESA’s DisplayHDR 600 certification. We spoke to LG about this who confirmed that they were issuing a new firmware for the screen to fix this problem.

It still falls short of “true HDR” which is often considered at 1000-nits brightness or more, and the contrast ratio of 1000:1 just doesn’t compare to a full-array backlight or OLED panel. Keep this in mind if you’re selecting any super high resolution display as it could be an important factor. The screen does not include variable overdrive, which had it been available could be used to offset this overshoot increase by increasing the response times a little as refresh rate lowers. Of course, this also depends on what type of games you play, what PC setup you have or plan to get, and what frame rate and picture settings you’d be satisfied with. The availability of hardware calibration was very welcome, allowing you to calibrate and control your screen with high levels of accuracy, storing the results on the screen itself to ensure this is retained for all uses, not just those ICC-profile aware applications and colour managed workflows.
