First we have to say that LG is cheating a bit. Especially regarding the advertising with G-Sync and the response time of 1 ms, the customer is misled. Nevertheless, we can say that the Ultra Gear 27GL850-B is really “UltraGear”. The response time is still fast with high quality images, although not as fast as monitors with TN panels. The equipment and features on board are really impressive.
The image quality is worthy of an IPS panel. The monitor doesn’t have to hide its brightness in particular, even if you could still do a bit more for HDR10. With this monitor LG is going in the right direction and we can look forward to the future whether there will soon be really usable response times of one millisecond for IPS panels.
