The LG 27GR95QE is an OLED monitor positioned at an upper midrange price, with a 27-inch screen featuring a 2560 x 1440 resolution. This type of monitor excels in contrast with an infinite static contrast ratio, which means you'll see deep blacks and vivid colors, ideal for HDR gaming and media consumption. Its very good refresh rate and total response time make it a strong choice for both casual and competitive gaming, ensuring smooth motion and reduced ghosting. However, its suitability for productivity and digital photo editing is hampered by fair text quality and limited brightness, which can affect how well you view content in brightly lit environments. While it covers a full sRGB color gamut and has a good P3 color range, it's not optimal for HDR video editing due to moderate color volume. Ports-wise, it has multiple HDMI 2.1 and a DisplayPort 1.4, making it versatile for connecting various devices. The matte coating helps reduce glare, and the adjustable stand allows for ergonomic positioning. If gaming and media are your priorities, and you're okay with a less bright display for work tasks, this monitor could be a good fit. Give Feedback

PC Gamer

Jorge Jimenez | March 2023
"The LG 27GR95QE-B is a stellar display that makes 1440p again the PC gaming sweet spot due to its high 240Hz refresh rate and fantastic latency. However, its low overall brightness and lack of onboard settings keep it from being great."
