What people are saying

Collecting an average rating of 4.5 stars, users say the LG UltraGear "hits the sweet spot" for gaming features. 

"The best monitor I've ever had," says one shopper. "Upgraded from 1080p to this baby and couldn't have been happier. It's worth paying a little extra for the LG brand and all that comes with it. Easy to set up and dependable, crazy good looking."

"Great monitor for the price. Games are running perfectly, and both the colours and resolution are certainly an upgrade from my last monitor!" writes another user. "The high refresh rate keeps things looking crisp. Supports 1440p at 120hz with HDR on Xbox series X and 144hz on my pc using DisplayPort."

"Awesome monitor, and man, when you think 1080 is good, and you get yourself this bad boy," reads another review. "Man, you're never going back to 1080p. Plus, gaming at 2k is just godly. 4k ya is good, but this here is the sweet spot!"

With that being said, some shoppers have noted that it can be challenging to adjust the monitor. "Easy to set up and dependable, crazy good looking. Only thing I could use is a moveable stand," writes one shopper. "It tilts but doesn't go up and down."

"Great monitor for the price. The stand is very, very limited," echos another reviewer. "But if you're going to put it on a monitor arm, you'll be fine."

Verdict

For the discounted price, gamers seem to agree that the LG 27" UltraGear Gaming Monitor is a valuable purchase. However, if stand flexibility is important to your game, some shoppers have cautioned that the LG UltraGear stand is limited in its mobility.
