LG 27UK650-W Reviews

Very well rounded 4K monitor for general use.

By J6074

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have owned/used this monitor for 4 years and it’s been excellent for its price if a good deal can be found on one. Don’t buy this if you need/want HDR good ergonomics, deep blacks, high refresh rate, or a wide colour gamut such as full P3 or full Adobe RGB colour gamut. Colours appear quite vibrant while retaining detail very well compared to other similar displays I have used. Despite its mediocre contrast ratio, its able to retain dark surprisingly well. The display has some noticeable backlight bleed and some yellow glow which is completely normal, but it hasn’t gotten worse over the years of owning it. There is little jaggedness in lower resolution content. It has decent brightness for indoor use 4K console games look great on this display. Multitasking and doing word, excel, PowerPoint on this display has been good due to the higher resolution and low jaggedness. Video watching is slight weakness for the display due to its mediocre contrast, but the things the monitor does well helps make up for it.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It would be really great if the USB ports on the back of the monitor were powered. So far I haven't found anything that I can plug into them without getting the "drawing too much power" message in macOS.

The jump from 1080p to 4k is astounding

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Upgraded my two 1080p monitors to two of these 4k LG ones. It looks like someone put Vaseline over the screen on my old ones compared to how clear these new ones are. Also love the ultra thin frame around the screen, makes it really sleek looking. Worth the upgrade for sure!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very good quality. Image is top notch. Im using it as an external monitor with HDMI cable. Only one small complaint. The monitor wouldn't turn on when I started the computer. I tried different cables. This didn't help. The only thing that solved the issue was configuring the picture mode as 'cinema'.

Versilile Workhorse!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this monitor a few months ago to support both my new M1 Mac Mini as I transitioned away from an all-in-one iMac, and just as importantly, to connect to my work laptop as my professional role became a work-from-home position. The 27UK650-W has exceeded my expectations. With multiple connections possible, I have USB-C connected to my Mac Mini, and HDMI connected to my work laptop, it's so easy to switch from my personal and work computers. As a graphic professional, color accuracy is paramount for my work, and I was concerned about going from a 5K iMac screen to this 4K screen, but I have been very satisfied with the color performance on the 27UK650-W.

Some trivialities spoil the mix

By jackobyte

its a good monitor but I have a few 4k devices so I am not blown away anymore. But the reason I write this is to warn buyers of a gross shortcoming of this device made all the worse by its "triviality". Buyers could be alerted to it by 1 simple word inserted at a crucial point but since LG chose not to they were not ashamed enough to fix it. You judge when I tell you: They wrote the USB ports on the monitor act as a USB hub. What they should have wrote is: as a unpowered hub, which is pretty weak as even the cheapest TV/monitors provide at least power to their ports, but big LG? no small mind!

Very detailed monitor

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The 4 k videos that I play on my monitor are so detailed. I have been playing video games on this monitor and there is no lag and super clear. I am running a mid-range video card. My son stopped over to do his taxes last minute and after he was done he was playing video games on my computer and even he said what a nice monitor. The raw pictures that I edit are so clear on this monitor. the stand is stronger and very straightforward, easy to adjust the height. I would buy this monitor again in a heart beat. Thanks Kevin

Can this support 24fps?

Can this support 24fps?
Asked by: dan
The answer is yes but... The refresh rate is 60 Hz. Most CODECs are sophisticated enough to handle 24fps or even 24P without being detectable to the user on a 60 Hz monitor. They do some incredible math under the hood to make it happen. There are some AV environments where the requirement is for a 48 Hz sync. I don't believe this can do that but if that's what you need, you probably know the ones you need to buy and the price tag. None of this is an issue to most consumers.

Asked by: Olivia
There are no significant differences between these two models. Both give you an IPS panel with sRGB 99%. The one small difference is in the brightness levels, the 27UK650-W can go a bit brighter (350 nits vs 300).
