Need for Speed: The LG UltraGear (27GN750) 240 Hz IPS Monitor with G-Syncby Anton Shilov on September 11, 2019 11:30 AM EST
LG has expanded its family of UltraGear displays aimed at hardcore and esports gamers. The newest model, the UltraGear 27GN750, supports a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate as well as NVIDIA’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology. The LG UltraGear 27GN750 is the industry’s first IPS monitor featuring such a high refresh rate along with the G-Sync technology.
Based on the so-called ‘fast IPS’ 27-inch panel, the LG UltraGear 27GN750 has a 1920×1080 resolution, 400 nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles, a 1 ms GtG response time, and a variable refresh rate of up to 240 Hz supported by NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology. Unfortunatelly, LG does not disclose the range of the VRR supported by the LCD.
The 27-inch gaming monitor can display 16.78 million of colors and can reproduce 99% of the sRGB color space. Furthermore, it also carries VESA’s DisplayHDR 400 badge and therefore supports HDR10 transport.
Because LG’s UltraGear monitors are designed predominantly for gamers, they support numerous features aimed at this audience, including LG’s Dynamic Action Sync mode, Black Stabilizer, and Crosshair.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the LG UltraGear 27GN750 has one DisplayPort, two HDMI inputs, as well as a dual-port USB hub.

Being one of the leading makers of high-end displays and offering hundreds of models, LG introduced its separate UltraGear brand targeted at demanding gamers only in mid-2019, somehow later than its competitors. The addition of the rather unique (as of today) UltraGear 27GN750 featuring a 240 Hz refresh rate enables the company to address a new market segment of gamers that require maximum performance yet demand quality of an IPS panel. In fact, this is the world’s second IPS LCD featuring a 240 Hz refresh rate and its only competitor is Dell's Alienware 27 model AW2720HF.

Mr Perfect - Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - link1080 on a 27"? I hope this thing is cheap.
JoeyJoJo123 - Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - linkProbably won't be. It's explicitly G-sync certified.
poohbear - Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - linkunless its super cheap, i don't see why anyone would buy this when there are so many IPS 1440p G-sync monitors out there already.
imaheadcase - Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - linkNo reason to even consider this, LG literally announced a better version of these already. Are they making so many versions of monitors the press releases are already outdated before a monitor ships now? LOL
jimbo2779 - Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - linkIf you are referring to the 27GL850 I would agree that it is far more desirable but I guess some would want the extra Hz for games like CS:GO.
On the topic of the 27GL850 I have been waiting for these to come in stock anywhere for near to RRP for months now. They were meant to be available last month but the stock levels are so low the pre-orders are always taking up all of the stock before it even hits the shelves.
LG need to sort their stuff out and get some stock out the door before their competition gets displays based on these, or similar, panels.
imaheadcase - Thursday, September 12, 2019 - linkYah to be fair though Asus and Acer put out press releases for a monitor that didn't come out for over a YEAR even though was suppose to be available a month after press release. lol
mode_13h - Friday, September 13, 2019 - linkI am awaiting that monitor, too.
I'm a bit more patient, though. I want to see some reviews, first.
jimbo2779 - Saturday, September 14, 2019 - linkYou want to see reviews for the 27GL850? If so there are a few out there, rtings have a good write up on it for example.
mode_13h - Sunday, September 15, 2019 - linkThanks. I'll have a look, but I'm in no rush. I'd rather wait for more people to get theirs and put some hours on them.
mobutu - Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - linkall was well until second paragraph "has a 1920×1080 resolution"
