Summary: I have been using this monitor for about 2 months now and I love it. It has great color reproduction and a crystal clear resolution. My only beef with it is that it makes a high-pitch squeal while it's in standby mode. I think it's related to the internal USB 3.0, but everything works great. -1 star for the standby sound.

Summary: First matters, first. Sheer delight occurred from surprise, next day receipt of this order that was not expected for at least 5 business days. Kudos to Amazon fulfillment system and to the perfect carrier that is FedEx! No thrown or tossed box: every corner of the shipping box (an external box to the the actual monitor packaging) was as perfect as can occur in hand-off by the shipper to the carrier....
Summary: A professional photographer recommended this LG monitor to me and he was right! Vivid, true colors were expected and that's what it provides. I found no dead pixels on any of the colors. The built-in color correction program/feature allows any fine tuning desired. Expensive....yes but I feel this monitor is at the top of the list for vivid true colors, brightness and consistent colors.
Summary: Product Description LG IPS Monitor 27EA83R offers a complete calibration solution, reviving accurate colour settings for more accurate colour matching in artwork and graphics. Graphic artists can easily find their desired colours. The combination of WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440) with the IPS panel gives the monitor unsurpassed picture quality.
Summary: The split screen feature never works right. The PDF file for support with worthless. The software installation is awkward and confusing. I can not get the Portrait feature to pivot the desktop.
Summary: The LG 27 Inch IPS Monitor makes a fantastic monitor for both work and play with a fantastic set of features including color accuracy and USB 3.0 connection. The LG 27EA83R-D has the Adobe color accuracy and color calibration software to allow for professional quality color in image or video editing. The monitor allows for two side by side pages in programs and browsers while the well-designed stand easily moves from portrait to landscape for either desktop orientation.
Summary: This purchase was a rather large jump for me. The hype for this degree of resolution varies greatly. From, "OMG...incredible!" to "not worth the difference". But allow me to qualify 2560x1440 in a pragmatic sense. If you have a 27" on your desktop and you sit 2-3 feet away from it then yes there is a noticeable improvement in detail, smoothness, sharpness and clarity. I am now inclined to agree that on a 27" 1080P pixels are a bit large.
Summary: Just when you think the larger monitors can not be improved upon anymore you find one that does just that..Have not seen a monitor that can provide such stunning true to live images. Just blows you away. Every morning I turn this thing on I get happy That's really all that needs to be said. Except: If you are looking for the touch controls, they are located underneath the right bottom of the frame. Not facing you on the front as you may expect..
Summary: This display is awesome - beautiful slim design, stays cool even after hours of continuous use, massive screen has plenty of room for 2 pages and/or multiple programs displayed at the same time, colors are vibrant. I use for both business and gaming, ample connection options available, and has a built-in USB hub which is smart and handy, and as if all that wasn't enough, the stand is very well designed and sturdy.
