The LG 27GN750-B of LG’s UltraGear series is a 240Hz display. It has a 1080p, IPS display with native FreeSync support, and it is also G-SYNC compliant approved by NVIDIA. Due to its exceptional response time, Motion looks exceptionally clear on this monitor both at its max refresh rate and at 60Hz. The input lag is incredibly short, so when gaming, your activities are recorded fast.
It has wide viewing angles with its IPS panel but has a low contrast ratio, so it is not ideal for viewing the darkroom. Unfortunately, although it supports HDR10, it is not capable of displaying a wide range of colors, so HDR content does not look much different from SDR content.
Before we unveil the test results, which brought us to our knees, let’s focus on the structure itself. Although unobtrusive, it hides many features that are usually associated with monitors at a price of five-digits. Let’s start quietly with package contents.
Along with LG 27GN750-B monitor, we get:
- Power supplies
- HDMI 2.0 Cable
- USB 3.0 Cable
- A 1.4 (DSC) DisplayPort cable
The first thing that catches your eye is the monitor’s DisplayPort cable with a 5K sticker, which is really thick and rigid. It is not an unintended act on LG’s end, since HDMI 2.0 is too small (figuratively and literally) to contain it beast, as it will quickly turn out. It is also worth noting that there is no built-in power supply which makes the monitor slimmer.
A very visually attractive monitor
As you might have noticed, this monitor is virtually without frame. And unlike other “frameless” apps, only the bottom edge does not have a frame here! Of course much of the shell is usually concealed behind the matrix glass. Still, you’re unusual to see a gaming console with a higher ratio of the projected picture to the window.
You will see the very same RGB LED circle at the back of the LG 27GN750-B‘s monitor. RGB is considered to have a broad community of critics. But in this case, we’re really concerned about the backlight matched with what the monitor shows!
Over PLN 9,000 display feature has now gone to more than twice cheaper brothers! How does that work out? Incredibly fine! The backlight can be synchronized with music or image (and each mode has additional settings.
Of course, even more, static modes can be operated even without the application of the LG UltraGear Control Core. For this reason, LG 27GN750-B‘s display is fitted with a different knob, like the larger model.
The first aspect that catches the attention is that as many as three profiles tend to come down with an average color variance below the E 3 delta. That means there’s a reasonably decent factory balance. So you won’t really note such height discrepancies in games or videos. Those aren’t ideal outcomes. But these “out of control” tests don’t arise, so if you choose to deal with images, you can already have your own colorimeter.
Half the contrast for the FPS and RTS modes also looks strange, but we managed to keep the area of 1000:1. The vendor set the brightness for SDR products at a maximum of 400 nits, and in total, LG 27GN750-B reached that amount.
Our interest was sparked by the information that the HDR600 certificate was obtained from the monitor-meaning. It offers at least 600 nits. We have done a short check on the L20 board, and the outcome is far better than we would have predicted. In HDR mode, the monitor generates more than 750 nits of brightness!
This effect helps you to appreciate a reliable representation of specifics of very light sections of the picture, but just in the night. This degree is unachievable for (much) more costly monitors and happily classified as HDR10 + for most TVs. Watching films or playing games that support HDR on this screen is truly a pleasure.
LG 27GN750-B‘s color reproduction could be significantly improved (but only after calibration). Above all, the strength of the matrix backlight could be practically doubled. Such an outcome means that the HDR sticker is no longer merely a marketing slogan but a useful feature.
