[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Quality of the picture is immaculate but I wish there was software integration for the lighting affect. I also appear to have lost my display port and I’m having to use HDMI now.

Over the course of a week I was seeking out a new monitor. Thankfully, right before my mind was set on another brand this one ultimately grabbed my attention. Always been a fan of LG, once again, they've proved to me why. Thoroughly satisfied with my purchase.

A yellow vertical line on the left side of the screen showed up after a day of use and it glitches out when I start up my PC. Confirmed multiple times with different cables and other graphic sources.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this a month ago and am very happy with the quality of the monitor. The display settings can be super confusing if you’re not knowledgable about graphics, there are a ton of predefined display modes to choose from. With that being said the blacks can get really dark and hard to see. Also the display doesn’t have built in speakers, which if you’re buying this display you probably have external ones anyways for better quality but something to keep in mind before buying.

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.
