LG’s latest 27-inch OLED monitor hits that gaming sweet spot

LG follows his bizarre 45-inch curved UltraGear monitor with a (slightly) more modest 27-inch flat screen model. Despite having no curvature, the new screen shares many of the same features as its big brother.

It’s still one OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) display that translates to deeper blacks and brighter whites. Looking at the spec sheet (opens in new tab), HDR10 support is present, allowing the monitor to cover 98.5 percent of the DCI-P3 (Digital Cinema Initiatives – Protocol 3) gamut and display a wide range of colors. The resolution took a small hit as it is now 2560×1440 (still 2K resolution) pixels with an aspect ratio of 16:9 due to the model’s smaller size. One of the biggest benefits of having the 45-inch is the added level of immersion and greater peripheral vision. 27 inches is still a decent size, but you might not catch that sneak attack coming from the right.

Same features as before
