    LG 27UD68-P reviews

    27UD68-P 27" 16:9 4K UHD IPS Monitor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Monitor! This is a great monitor, just a couple of things people have mentioned before. The stand a little wobbly and the menu switch is a weird one. One switch on the center bottom of the monitor, works like a toggle switch. You have to toggle back and forth in the menus :) Other than that, it's very high resolution, very bright and works well with Adobe CC. I had purchased a Dell before this but RMA-d it because I didn't feel it was as bright as it should be. The price on this seems to fluctuating. Overall I really like it. It's pretty well Calibrated from the factory, will have to check it though. I gave it 4 stars because of the stand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Monitor - would buy again Using as a retina display on a Mac pro. Still working out color calibration issues, but otherwise good. Need to use Display Port, not HDMI, for 4K on Pro. Monitor does not come with a DP cable. The monitor turns itself off (power save mode) if it loses signal on the DP for more than a couple of seconds. This can't be disabled, and is a nuisance when rebooting to install software as DP video is out for more than a few seconds and it doesn't turn back on automatically. This and the less-than-obvious color calibration are why I gave it four stars. Good value for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking and function I am a heavy data user. I do school research and my eyes do not get tired looking at this great monitor with a tiny bezel. Very bright and crisp. To answer the 1 star review: Just because I can't get rid of the box coming up at startup By Josi That box will never be able to be clicked by the OS (Mouse) because that is your monitor's OSD (On Screen Display) that you use the button under the LG logo on the bottom of the bezel to control the monitor menus with. http://gscs-b2c.lge.com/downloadFile?fileId=Wk3bJTARXmBtAAfpAT65LQ See pg 17 of the manual.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine display monitor - 27 seems a little small for 4K though I was able to get this monitor when it was on sale - paid under $350 for it (2016) which I thought was a steal. Comparing it to 2013 27 iMac at home side by side, this monitor is quite excellent. - Sharpness / Color / Contrast / Brightness all seems to be excellent - Given the price, acknowledge that stand is a very minimal one, which I do not have much issue (it can only tilt slightly up or down) - This maybe for all 27 4K - I wanted to use it at full 4K but fonts for most applications become too small. Connecting from my macbook pro, I am using it 1 setting less, gives me about 3K by 2K pixels which is good enough (better than 2560x1440). If you want to use 4K setting I suggest 32' if you can afford the space.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Video Editors Dream...... Why is this better than any other 4K monitor? Lets check out the list ( Im a video editor professionally : 1. IPS Panel+170to170 Viewing Angle = No contrast Shifting 2. COLOR CALIBRATED FROM THE FACTORY! = No need to go to monitors menu settings to match the color/contrast with the screen of your retina mac, it will automatically look EXACLY like it! Its like I'm looking at my 15' Retina Macbook pro screen it soooooooo beautiful. 3. Price - I thought cheaper was better......wrong, i purchase the AOC 349 dollar model and i had to return it because of the TN screen and the off-putting viewing angles of 170+160. This number should always match Like, I never almost cried buying a piece of technology, but for someone who is editing video full time, looking at this screen just brings a tear to my eye. It looks so lifelike.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not bad for low-priced monitor for photo editing, a white page is a little bit on the blueish tint when in SRGB mode, its not a neutral white. and when you view an all black page in full screen, and turn off all ambient lights so that only the monitor is on, theres heavy & uneven light bleeding on all edges. and when you view an all-white page theres vignetting on the edges. this is suppose to be an IPS monitor but if you view from off center theres shading, so it has to be viewed from center only. picture quality is nice and bright, but default setting is 100% brightness. im using on a gtx980ti, and it is a full 3840x2160 at 60hz on a macpro. this is good because not all low-priced 27inch monitors will be the full 4k @60hz. havent tested for games but if its native 60hz at full 4k, should be good. the stand is a fixed 3.5 inches from desktop to bottom of monitor edge, cannot adjust height. it is tiltable only, just adjusts up or down. cannot swivel or rotate from portrait to landscape. vesa mount 100mmx100mm screw mounts in the back. good because the included stand is quite cheap, but i have 2 monitors anyways so im using a dual monitor mount.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good next to 27" iMac It's a nice monitor and at a good price. I had to manually calibrate it out of the box–it ran on the cool side and had to adjust the white balance and contrast to get it to match the iMac screen, but I was able to get it to match fairly well.� There were a few features I think I had to turn off, like the extra sharpening which looks awful, don't use it. It's a pretty bright screen, but could be a tad bit brighter to match iMac's full brightness- not a big deal. Wish it had mini display port on the back so I didn't have to buy a new cable, but thats okay. Overall, the screen represents colors accurately and with beautiful vibrance, the darks and lights �are well represented as it seems to have pretty good dynamic range (I think I turned off or changed the default gamma setting to get there though).� I would recommend this screen to a friend.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A great monitor with an abysmal stand I bought this monitor as an auxiliary for a workstation. Color, detail, brightness, viewing angles, ease of setup all great, but the stand was so underbuilt for the weight and bulk of the monitor itself. It was eerily top-heavy on the desk, and sure enough... it got smashed in the first five minutes, tipping over when the cord got tugged just a teeny bit by a co-worker. If you're installing it on a wall bracket or an articulated arm, It's a great bargain and a great experience. If you want to put it on a desk with the stand they put in the box, it's a disaster. I got a replacement Samsung at the same spec/price (different model number, different stand just as flimsy) with an Ergotron articulated arm and the all-risk third-party warranty. Very happy so far.
