Great 4k display with amazing HDR and Quality

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Its been 2 month now with this monitor , the quality is amazing, easy switch between 2 devices (work and play) , and great DPI when coding due to IPS panel. Really recommend this monitor.

Great Features for my Mac, PC, and PS5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It took me at least 3 months to decide on a monitor that would have all the features I wanted! Top 2 features: 4k and high refresh rates: PS5 confirmed 4k @ 120hz - HDMI Macbook Pro (M1 Pro) confirmed 4k @ 144hz - Display Port Windows PC confirmed 4k @ 60hz (non-gaming laptop) - HDMI The 27GP950-B was the all-in-one solution for my gaming, video/photo editing, and my 9 to 5 job. The colors on the monitor looks great for my Macbook Pro. I was finally able to unlock the visual potential of my PS5. I thought the scaling on a 4k screen would be too small or awkward for my work but it turns out I no longer need a second monitor due to all the desktop space with the 4k resolution. The settings menu is a little tedious to navigate for selecting inputs and changing other settings, but it’s not a big deal. It was my fault for assuming the signal input would automatically select an input. If this feature is available then I haven’t done enough homework for this monitor. This model was probably not ideal for editing but it takes care of my other needs for multiple devices. It would have been very nice to have USB-C as an input option for video. The price was on the higher side but it beats purchasing a TV with HDMI 2.1 for my PS5 PLUS a compatible 4k 144hz monitor for my macbook pro. I had a lot to consider when I was weighing out the pros and cons comparing different options. Overall, I am completely satisfied with my purchase. Thank you LG!

Perfect for the PS5

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This monitor brings the ps5 to life, unleashes it’s true potential. The picture quality is amazing and buttery smooth frames for fast pace action games. Love that it comes with backlight on the monitor for a more aesthetic look and different color options. Plenty of settings to change and adjust on the monitor making it a more user custom experience.

I bought this monitor near launch last year and have had it for a year and a week today. At first my HDMI 1 port stopped receiving any signal, tried my PC, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, nothing. I let it go as a minor inconvenience because the HDMI 2 worked, yesterday my screen freezes solid, couldn't turn the monitor off or anything. Stuck on a black screen, with a resolution change message stuck on the bottom right of the screen. Had to pull the plug from the outlet and once I plugged it back on, the monitor will not power on. Red light on the bottom isn't on and I bought a 2nd power supply and it didn't fix the issue. So after a year and a week, right after my warranty is up, it's dead.

Amazing features, Great quality

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Excellent visuals. The high refresh rate is especially appreciated when playing games. I have the 27 inch monitor that fits perfectly into the the cubby I have on my desk. The notch for holding cables on the monitor stand is a #great idea and has been extremally helpful. My only issues and the one that keeps me from giving the monitor a five star review is that sometimes the monitor will not wake up after going asleep, and which requires the power cable to be removed then reinserted for the monitor to wake up. In all fairness, the monitor is connected to a new Windows 11 PC which might be a part of the problem.

How is this display HDR 600 rated when its peak brightness is listed as 400 cd/m2 ?
Asked by: Andrew
The HDR 600 certification should not be confused with its implementation. In addiion to the higher luminance, the specification allows for a wider color gamut than HDR 400. LG is able to certify at HDR 600, giving users better colors at the same 400 nits. This also keeps the pricing relatively reasonable.
