The monitor specs are quite clear and fortunately there are many good YouTube videos unboxing and demonstrating what it’s capable of doing so I don’t speak about them. I didn’t purchase this monitor for gaming even though I did played some high FPS and HDR games on it just to test it out. It does exactly what it says and that’s why I gave it five stars. The HDR capabilities are quite bold and practical. It works perfectly with windows 11 while the display is set to always HDR. The refresh rate works like a charm and the picture quality is close to fantastic which is why I use it (video editing & designing). The contrast is that high that it really bothers my eyes if I lock at the white screen display even though it’s only a HDR 400 certified.If you use the monitor to watch HDR streaming contract, be happy that HDR would be automatically picked by the streamers as the default. I bought a VESA desk mount but I didn’t see any use for that because the monitor has a very practical and pretty stand. For the settings out of the box, you might need to spend some time to get the monitor screen and other functionalities based on your preferences but it’s super initiative and easy with user friendly menus adjustable by one single small joystick located at the back side of the screen. This monitor is not the best of it’s class but for the price and such quality, it’s definitely worth buying even more so if you happen to buy it while it’s discounted (as I did, thx to Amazon). Delivery of the monitor was nice and fast as usual (someone knocked the door and handed to me after singneture). I haven’t checked the color accuracy because I was super happy with the outcome I set it up and compare to my reference monitor at work (Benq), the picture quality is superb (the Benq is a 4K monitor and almost two times more expensive).Would I recommend this monitor? Definitely yes, if you can afford it.

You have to tweak this badboy, some panels come with a yellow veil that you need to remove via Nvidia control panel, I will put my settings on the photos as reference (not all panels are the same is all trial and error). That being said…This monitor is a real good deal with the new 600$ price. Colors are incredible, bright is great for an IPS, contrast is tolerable on bright rooms, bad on dark rooms (greyish blacks), the sharpness is impressive, coming from a 27″ QHD this one feels even sharper and more detailed, maybe because is less tall so the pixels are more compressed, who knows.Now the BIG DEAL about this monitor: RESPONSE TIME AND PIXEL REFRESH, this monitor is a league of it’s own, almost imperceptible motion blur (really, I CAN’T see it) and the input lag is very low, good for competitive games.now the CONS:* no Pip, no Pbp !! I mean, come on LG, 29 old ultrawide had that feature, why this ones cant ?* no speakers* poor contrast ratio, bad black handling on dark rooms* the stand is HUGE, plus the height doesn’t go too low, just mid height and very tall height.* it could had USB C or KVM for the premium price.* Needs calibration if you have the yellow tint vail (most monitor have it)Still, this is a great monitor, my next monitor will be an ultrawide OLED for sure, probably LG as well.PS: check my captures, those are my settings for perfect tone, removing the yellow tint and giving a warmish not too cold colors. You can play with it, or check RTINGS.com calibration for more references.

I have the non IPS (VA) version. I got it on sale during Christmas sales, so it’s hard to beat this monitor for the price. I have not starting gaming on it yet, but good colors and contrast and great real estate. Does not seem to cause me any eye strain. No dead pixels. For a widescreen 1440p monitor and for the price I paid, I’m pretty happy with it.That said, there is a strange cutoff right at the edge of the bottom bezel. Unless you are looking at it straight on or beneath, the last ~2 rows of pixels are diminished. And since it is at the bottom of the screen and my eyes are always above the bottom edge, I notice it. It’s not something that bothers me really, but it’s there and it shouldn’t be.The speakers are fine for what they are. Bass tone drops off heavily below 110hz, which I would expect. Pretty good spacial stereo for built-in monitor speakers. It works fine for general use and meetings. If you need more you would want external speakers or a good headset.
