The LG monitor came in a standard LG Box. The box gave little way in terms of features other than a Gaming Monitor.  The 27″ Screen Size is perfect for viewing close but not large enough to view across a room.  The Monitor is not a 4k Monitor rather Full HD (1920×1080) Resolution. The Monitor came with ample connector in the rear and a useful headphone out socket. The bracket design as expected from LG is off an excellent design.

Games are smoother and more thrilling at a higher refresh rate, and this 240Hz monitor can refresh the image on screen up to an astounding 240 times per second. Enjoy high-speed gaming with virtually no motion blur or stuttering.

The setup was great in terms of no fiddle bit of screws etc were required, the bracket was self-explanatory to fit and sturdy. The abundance of sockets in the rear allowed connections of a variety of gaming consoles.  The HDMI connected with Monitor picking up the resolution to match the input.

Overview of LG monitor:


  • The resolution runs smooth.

  • Buttons are very hidden if not using a mouse and keyboard to use the monitor.
  • No sound from the monitor unless speakers are provided by the user.
  • High product in the price range but lacks 4k.


Overall the monitor was a commendable product, but the price is high range considering all the negatives, and not 4K. This is a Premium brand while there are monitors and televisions that are considered to have better graphs and have sound from them. This is a high-quality monitor for gaming that has an earphone slot which is another beneficial thing for gamers, Gameplay is very good and smooth leaving a traditional LED with similar resolution miles behind with the technology graphic cards frame rate and refresh rate.  This is a serious gaming Monitor for serious gamers.
