You don’t find many models offering a 1920 x 1080 resolution IPS panel paired with a high 144Hz refresh rate, but LG are set to release a new offering in their UltraGear lineup of gaming displays. The new 27GL650F will also support Adaptive-Sync for variable refresh rates from both AMD and NVIDIA systems.
Although there are many choices out there in this size, with a higher 2560 x 1440 resolution IPS panel and high refresh rate, some users prefer a more manageable 1080p resolution. This is less demanding on their system and graphics cards, and for gaming may be a sweet spot in terms of res/refresh rate for some.
Spec wise the screen offers a 27″ IPS panel with 1920 x 1080 resolution, 5ms G2G response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 8-bit colour depth and 99% sRGB colour gamut. A motion blur reduction backlight is also provided, giving rise also to a 1ms MPRT specification. Good to see the normal G2G spec also quoted here!
While HDR10 support is mentioned in the spec, this is nothing more than accepting an HDR input and having a slightly higher brightness than some competing monitor. There is no local dimming here, or even an extended colour gamut or 10-bit colour depth.
The stand offers tilt, height and pivot adjustments. There are DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0 and a headphone jack offered for connectivity.
