Pros: Great quality IPS screen, no dead pixels. The color accuracy out of the box was great. Nice USB 3.0 hub in the back. AC4 Black Flag, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 looks great at 1440P and many other games.
Cons: The light bleed is terrible, even at 37/100 brightness the light bleed is unacceptable at the $700 price point. I had the Asus PB278Q (PLS panel) and it was much better at an even back lighting, however it developed dead pixels at an alarming rate.
Great monitor in a market flooded with bad quality panels.

Summary: They really need to explain about taking that pin out of the monitor stand to allow height adjustment. None of the included documentation mentions it and I was pulling pretty hard to try and get it to adjust before I noticed the pin. Could've accidentally broken it.
Pros: No dead pixles. No backlight bleeding. Minimal glow (gets even more minimal when brightness is lowered). Great stand. Great looking design to bezel and stand. Power brick can be mounted on monitor. Not insanely expensive (found it cheaper somewhere else ).
Cons: I like how the power brick can be mounted on the back of the display, but the chord needs to be way longer. It barely reaches anywhere. Really seems like it was build for someone who has a self contained desk power strip that then goes out to the actual power outlet.
Summary: One other annoyance --the power adaptor's cord to the monitor is so short that the power supply can be only on the desk or hanging off. Why cheap out on this and not make it long enough to reach to the floor?
Pros: The color gamut, mechanical integrity and ergonomics, clarity of image, speed, not a single bad pixel or any of the light leakage or faint lines a couple of others have mentioned.
Cons: A shipping pin in the column is hard to remove. Tried a swiss army knife can opener, ordinary household pliers, and then a small slot screwdriver worked to get it out. To LG's credit they do put a small clear label over the pin to tell you it should be removed- unambiguous.
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: There were faint diagonal lines in the bottom half of the display. This occurred on all 3 computers I tried attaching to the monitor. I RMA'd it, but the replacement had the same problem, so i returned returned it.
Pros: Physically, the hardware is attractive looking, and feels like it has solid, quality construction.
Cons: If the room is dark, the lighting wasn't even when displaying black/dark colors.
Pros: This is the best monitor I've tried so far. I had owned/tried all Dell Ultra sharp monitors including the Dell U3014 2560x1600. I was surprised this monitor is half price yet is a better monitor than the U3014, or the Mac Thunderbolt. Don't be fooled by benchmarks, specs, and reviews from people who did not have them side-by-side. The LG 27EA83R-D, when setting color mode to sRGB, will beat the U3014/Thunderbolt. I know most specs out there boast about Adobe RGB, 10-b...
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..
Pros: Sharpness and clarity are remarkable compared to the 26" TN Samsung 1920x1200 it replaced. It took all of ten minutes before the phrase, "I'll never go back!", escaped my lips.
Cons: The power brick could be better if the wire from the brick to monitor was longer. If it was it might allow the brick to be located elsewhere, as it is there is not much choice but to clip it to the back of the monitor.
