LG Perfect Pixel

T. Spittler, Amazon
28 August 2014
  • Summary: Maybe one of the best monitors for photographers and designers right now. Make sure you buy it with the color calibration tool designed for it, which is rare at Amazon but from time to time available. So try to go for the Monitor including the device or buy it apart.

Great Screen

Adam C., Newegg
5 April 2014
  • Summary: You can watch several games at once if you're a sports fan. If you are watching standard definition video on full screen it looks awful though, it can't upscale to WQHD very well. If you work with photos, videos, or gaming I would highly recommend this screen.
  • Pros: So I bought this for the better color range and resolution and it has delivered! Its super thin even compared to other LCDs. I work with photos and out of the box it looked better then my previous LG. It didn"t need calibrating either, it was already accurate. The refresh rate is still fast enoug...
  • Cons: Yeah it costs a lot!, but for the money I can't think of a better upgrade you could do for a computer. The stand is big I realize it has to be but it could be smaller. I would get a vesa mount. If I had to nit pick after eight hours you can see a slight glow toward the top but only on a black scr...

Wickedly Vivid!

Steve W., Newegg
3 January 2014
  • Summary: Use the best Dual DVI or DP cables you can with this monitor. It makes a difference. Asus GeoForce GTX 770 video card.
  • Pros: I have two side-by-side. Gorgeous colors and sharpness. Brilliantly bright, Well constructed stand. If I could afford it, I would change every monitor on all my computers to these. I am replacing two 5 year old Eizo LCDs (24" & 22"). They are essentially dim compared to these LGs. When they were ...
  • Cons: I had a bad DVI cable for which I had to RMA the whole package. It happens.

Just About Perfect....

Kristopher O., Newegg
31 October 2013
  • Summary: Teething issues aside, I'm quite impressed. I'd certainly buy it again.
  • Pros: QHD resolution is a vast improvement from the 17" SXGA that I've been using for almost a decade. 10-bit RGB color accuracy is excellent. 27" is a perfect size for 1440p, as I find the pixel granularity of 1080p to be bothersome above a 24" format. Matte screen finish is perfect for rooms with amp...
  • Cons: I've encountered serious issues on occasion when trying to "wake" devices [attached to this monitor] from a sleep state. If the monitor is not turned off before the device connected to it enters a sleep or hibernation state (as my power profile is set to), the monitor will not recognize the signa...

Gorgeous display

Duncan G. McDermott, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a huge upgrade from my older 1080p panel. The color was accurate enough for my purposes (Photographer) out of the box, so I skipped buying the calibrator for now. Perfect size, good pixel density, menus are straight forward and everything you need is in the box; no surprise expenses on...

Glad I picked this LG

Dan D., Newegg
8 June 2013
  • Summary: It's not true 10bit as others pointed out, it's actually 8bit + frc. I had a Samsung S27B970D before. I returned the samsung within 2weeks due to deadpixel, and got this LG instead b/c they had no more samsungs in stock.
  • Pros: Very bright. Great color accuracy. Comes pre-calibrated with a calibration report. 8bit + frc makes images very vibrant. Anti-glare coating actually works pretty well.
  • Cons: not brushed aluminum casing. The stand could be a little more solid. Some ppl might not like the fact 8bit+frc cause image to oversaturate, but monitor has a sRGB mode.

Beautiful Contrast and vivid colors!

Carlos C., Newegg
16 May 2013
  • Summary: For the price I got this I am EXTREMELY happy with my purchase. If the stand were to be replaced with a heavier one, this monitor would be perfect.
  • Pros: Easy on the eyes, high contrast with no bleed through, vivid colors and menu navigation is a snap. The PIP (Picture in Picture) feature is very well done and maximum resolution is achieved with no scaling or distortion. The average user may not benefit from the maximum unless they have a mid to h...
  • Cons: The stand is a bit flimsy if you adjust the height of the monitor to the highest setting. The power cable has a wide body which prevented me from using the adjacent plugs on my surge strip. The monitor buttons are not mechanical, so if you accidentally touch them, they will respond.

Wow!!

Jim M., Newegg
14 May 2013
  • Summary: When I first set this up I used my old HDMI cable. Mistake..All the text was garble. I then used the supplied, much heavier duty, HDMI cable and problem solved. Next the colors were amazing...But they seemed to have way to much pop.
  • Pros: Large, Lite, Cool
  • Cons: Only 1 year warranty

Why did i wait so long?

Robert N., Newegg
12 May 2013
  • Summary: Package had been opened before,may have been a return ,was not happy about that. Bottom line,I am impressed by the progress made in monitor technology and now believe that in some instances you can build a better mousetrap.
  • Pros: Great image detail,Colors seem to pop off screen ,but remain accurate.Lots of settings to play with. Games look awesome,especially racing sims. Movies also appear in greater detail and immersion.
  • Cons: Included software is flaky to install ,and is difficult to tell if it is actually working.Does not show up in programs. Adjustment buttons are not labled well on lower bezel,and are overely sensitive
