One I've been thinking about for a little while, good specs and size. It is Freesync enabled which sometimes gets hidden in the blurb with them. Resolution as you may expect is 4K (3840 x 2160) It's a 60 Hz monitor, but when you get it, check the settings as it may default to 30Hz, I'm sure most of you would easilly notice anyway, especially in games

The question is will it look good


I used a 28" UHD monitor as a 2560x1440 one for triple monitor surround reasons, it definitely looked a bit blurrier than ones with that native resolution but it was only noticeable on really fine text, like size 8 and below. Shouldn't be noticeable in games since they never use text that small.
Just be warned that the stands on LG monitors tend to be very flimsy even by normal standards.

To be honest it's not really for a budget gaming machine, since they won't be looking to do 4K.

I actually have this monitor desktop monitor next to my ultrawide and what it is good for is if you have a PS4 Pro or plan on getting a Scorpio since they don't need higher than 60hz but obviously have 4K support. Fort that I recommend it.

I have this monitor and I highly recommend it.
I use it for my PS4 Pro and it's brilliant.
60hz works perfectly for the Pro.
Good deal.

Looking for a 27" 2560x1440 g sync monitor though. Anybody know of any good deals for one?
Edited by: "GishG" 9th May 2017

The price is not bad, not particularly great either. I picked up a BenQ 27inch 144hz monitor for £350 last year which is leaps and bounds ahead of this. As others have said though this would be ideal for a small screen to play Scorpio and Pro games.

4k Gaming at 120hz is possible on the majority of higher end cards - GTX 1080's are dropping in price and would easily run any game 4k 120hz

A 144hz 4k monitor for £350? Or are you not comparing like for like?

A 1080 might run any game at 120hz 4k if you turn everything down, but nowhere near at high to max settings.

Sorry, No. My monitor supports up to 1440p @ 144hz. I think we can all appreciate that 4k gaming is still in it's early days and has a long way to go before being considered mainstream.

Yes, turning settings to about medium... In order to be able to play 4k 120hz on Ultra you would be expected to be spending about £1000 on your GPU alone.

Yeah I agree, I didnt think a 144hz 4k monitor actually existed for sensible money yet but wanted to check!

And yes I have a single 1080 as I use a 4K TV for playing and its OK for 60fps on most things maxed but to double it would probably be a pair of 1080 or 1080tis as a guess. If I was buying a monitor I would go to 1440p I think for now and take the extra fps.

Yep, sorry, I should have been more specific about my resolution.

I think until gaming on 4k becomes more affordable it's way better to have a solid 1440p monitor with 144hz refresh rate and enjoy the crap out of everything on ultra

In your opinion is 1440p 144hz gaming better 'quality' than that of 4k 60FPS? I've never really gamed in 4K although I know a bit about it and would like an opinion on how good that extra resolution actually is.
Edited by: "steve_bezerker" 9th May 2017
Because it's not mainstream enough 4k is a bit of a hassle IMO. The scaling is a bit daft for starters and it seems even W10 isn't really designed for it. I think having a low input lag 1440p monitor with gsync and 144hz would give an overall better experience than what I have at the moment when playing FPSs. Strategy games are fairly good on the TV with high res because the slight lag isn't important. It's just I haven't space in my man cave for a desk and monitor at the moment as it is doubling up as home theatre, music listening and gaming room. I think 32" is as small as I would want to go with 4k too!

Vs 1080 the extra res is really noticeable IMO, and in my rug would rather do 4k at 60 than 1080 at 150 it whatever, but I haven't played 1440 but I imagine it's almost best of both.

What are you encountering that doesn't scale? I've yet to find something that doesn't *attempt* to scale, though admittedly Slack doesn't do it as well as it could, likewise Steam.

lol, never said I 4k game. 144hz at 1440p freesync on a monitor that is designed for 1440p. 1440p looks better on a native 1440p screen.

btw I hear they are bringing out 2019 in just over a year and a half.

anyway please refrain from reading my comments in future as it seems you just read what you want rather than what is written.
Gamut (CIE 1931) NTSC 72%, 8bit +FRC bit depth. So not for me, but a good deal if you don't need a wide gamut or high bit depth (which is most people).
There's so much negativity on this thread. This is a 27" 4k IPS monitor for under £300! It's a great price and the lowest I have ever seen for this class of monitor. Heat added and ordered.

Er, okay, looks like you took offense from absolutely nothing there.

Anyway, anyone on the fence about this, I can recommend it as a good monitor for your Pro etc. It doesn't suffer too much bleed either, at least in my case.
There are no 4k panels currently available that run higher than 60Hz due to limitations of the 1.2 display port format. Several 4k 144Hz panels have been announced using the display port 1.4 format but won't be available until later this year.

They will also cost a small fortune. The least of your worries will be whether a GTX 1080 can hit 120 fps because you could probably afford a pair of 1080 Ti's if you can afford one of those screens.

oh yeah 4k or 2k strategy is soooo much better, well actually most top down really benefits with higher resolutions when it lets you see more ground... hmmm might have to fire up SC2 unless you got a better RTS or turn based suggestion?
i have the 23.5" version. with freesync it can go to 75Hz. I have a GTX960 set at 75Hz 1080p

Most people game on 60hz displays.

And no 'budget' gamer is looking for a 4k screen.
Not the best company once you run into promblems or returning the goods back.
Few weeks ago bought a dell ultrasharp monitor from them, and it was delivered damaged.
It took more then 3 weeks till I received replacement which also had a damaged box but luckily screen was fine. I saved nearly 40£ compared to amazon, but after all this hassle with pictures to proof that damage was done in transit and tons of phone calls every other day…
Dont think ill ever deal with them again.

It's 60hz with a 5ms response time..to the gamer who's looking for the best possible monitor this is garbage. This monitor is literally perfect for people with small compact set-ups for PS4 Pro or Xbox Scorpio, outside of that it has almost no use in the PC world.

4k Gaming is incredibly taxing on PC and in order to actually hit 60FPS on a 4k Monitor would mean that you've spent thousands of pounds on your rig - it wouldn't make sense to then cheap out on an 8bit panel with a 5ms response time.. if you have spent that sort of money you would be better off dropping £500 on a 28" AMD or BenQ gaming monitor that uses 1440p 144hz, and then waiting for a 4k 144hz 10bit panel later on.

Not to mention the terrible time of having to see all of your games getting upscaled to 4k quality rendering them almost unplayable, with noticeable input lag and random FPS drops.

What do you want it for?

They are both 16:9 Aspect Ratio, Both 60hz, 4k, UHD with HDMI support, Both have 1ms Response time... the Asus has (tinny) speakers, but both have 8bit TN panels so picture quality and viewing angles will be frustrating on both in a gamer set-up.

All depends what you're using them for?

​seriously it's almost like people look at benchmarks for PC and go yep nothing can game at 4k . . . a GTX 1060 can game at 4k60 for the most part on medium to high settings but for some reason these benchmark sites always test at ultra which these days basically has very little difference for a massive performance drop =/
