What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 120HZ 1440P WORKS ON XBOX ONE X I absolutely love this monitor, but I almost returned it.. because I could not get 120HZ to work with 1440P. However, after extensive research I realized that adaptive sync had to be turned off in which allowed it to work. Huge difference when playing with 120HZ compared to 60HZ. Xbox came out with an update two years ago to fix the issue I mentioned above, but adaptive sync is one that has yet to be fixed for some odd reason. More benefits compared to 60HZ with adaptive sync. Many other monitors have this same issue even the expensive ones if you are using it on consoles due to the HDMI's cap and PC's having display ports in which have a higher refresh rate. So, your money will be well spent especially if this is for a console because the picture is beautiful and games have never been smoother. Price is great too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're stuck on the fence read this. It seems like nearly every reputable monitor review can never give a definitive YES you should buy it, or a NO you shouldn't. "It's always if you want, or if your preference is"' I'm going to say right off the hop, YES you should buy this as a gaming, or media monitor. The feature set and build quality at this price point is amazing. What I'm going to cover below is for people (like I was) who are really on the fence about the small negatives that had me racking my brain. I hate making the wrong decision and I want to make sure I'm getting the best possible product for my money. This a great monitor, but if you're like me, debating if those tiny issues make this monitor a bust compared to the others, read on. Refresh rate: For anybody who has concerns about the response time on a 144hz IPS gaming panel, you really shouldn't. The response time and refresh rate on the GL850's fast setting are great (I'm sure you've already read about the 'fastest' setting and its issues). I'm writing this hoping there's at least one shopper who needs to read this right now: Others might not agree with me, but the only people who need the lowest response times and the highest refresh rates should be esports pros and should be looking to a 240hz TN panel. If you aren't a professional gamer, there is no need for anything like that. At the highest level of professional gaming, refresh rates, and response times really matter because on an even playing field that could give someone the slightest advantage. If you aren't being paid to play video games, you don't need the fastest monitor in the world. That being said, the GL850-B will provide a huge advantage over the competition. Even at the highest skill non-pro matches, tons of people are still using 1080p 60hz monitors. Contrast Ratio: The IPS picture quality is great. LG really hit the best of both worlds for both enthusiast gaming and professional editing. One of my main concerns buying this monitor was it's contrast ratio. It is low at around 800:1, but it's nothing to be worried about. It is unnoticeable when compared to other IPS monitors and not something you should look elsewhere over. To be clear you don't need to worry about this unless you are doing a very specific type of professional work that requires a high contrast ratio. Panel issues: You might have read some reviews for this monitor saying that they had to return and reorder this monitor because of a panel issue. This is an issue you could encounter with ANY monitor brand at ANY price. The same is true for TVs. Don't let someone's "panel lottery" experience make you look at another monitor because it's just as likely the same amount of people are having the same issues with "that other one". There are some cases where panel issues are common with certain brands. This is not the case with LG. Lastly, Monitor Stand: One negative some reviewers seem to mention is the stand not having some movement features. This is also not something that should influence your decision unless you have a specific disability or professional need. If you absolutely you NEED the ability to swivel your monitor you shouldn't be reading this long review in the first place. In the end of the day, it's not an important issue unless you absolutely need to have it. To summarize what I'm trying to say: Due to the way IPS, VA & TN panels are produced there is no "100% perfect" monitor. Proper reviewers always have negatives to find, that is their job. But they're speaking to everybody, from professionals to enthusiasts, not just gamers. I'm here to say that this is an amazing monitor and if you are thinking of buying it, but find yourself wondering "Will the contrast ratio ruin my single-player game experience?" "Will the stand that doesn't swivel look bad?" "I'm not an Esports pro, but will the .5ms faster response time make a big difference?" The answer to all of the above is no. No, it will not, and if you were on the fence because of these small issues or others that maybe some other monitor that's more expensive doesn't have. I would say buy the LG 27GL850. You really can't go wrong with this monitor. Yes, there are some features that are nice to have, that this monitor doesn't. For example to get a true HDR experience you'll be trading away most if not all of the benefits of this monitor and still paying more money. This is a great choice and this monitor's specs will still be great through 2023, and possibly beyond that. I'm really happy with this monitor and I think you will be too.
