If you are in the market for a 240Hz high refresh rate monitor, then you are in luck. More and more high refresh rate monitors are becoming available. LG recently released their UltraGear 27GN750 gaming monitor. This is a 27-inch full HD IPS monitor with a refresh rate of 240Hz and a fast 1ms response time. The one from BenQ, the Zowe XL2746S, shares similar features (27”, 240Hz) but it’s only a TN panel and it cost more than LG’s offering. The LG 27GN750 is now available, at Amazon.com here, and you can check out more details below.
LG UltraGear 27GN750 Gaming Monitor Features
TN panels are usually the type of display used in competitive eSports titles and tournament, since they typically have faster response time. However, TN panel doesn’t have great color accuracy. This is were LG’s UltraGear 27GN750 gaming monitor comes in. It features a ~1ms GtG (gray-to-gray) response time and a high-refresh rate of 240Hz.
It’s also an IPS panel offering 99% sRGB and 99% CIE1931 color gamut, with a wide viewing angle of 178˚ in any direction. It’s also “HDR10 compatible”, although this monitor has a maximum brightness of only 400 cd/m2, so it’s not real HDR, but a mediocre HDR400 at best.
Since this is a 27”-inch monitor on a 1920×1080 resolution, it has an 81 pixel per inch density only. So, compared to 27” monitor with a 1440p resolution, pixels are a bit more noticeable on a 27” 1080p display. On the flip side, the LG UltraGear 27GN750 does support 6-bit+FRC and features FreeSync that is compatible with G-Sync technology.
The LG UltraGear 27GN750 isn’t really a top of the line monitor like the LG 27GL850 with its 1440p resolution and NANO IPS display. But I think it’s main selling point is the 240Hz refresh rate and ~1ms response time on an IPS panel.
Price and Where to Buy
The LG UltraGear 27GN750 is now available in the US and comes with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $399.99 USD. LG is also offering a 1-year limited warranty for the said monitor. Prices are subject to change; so, for latest pricing and availability kindly check out the link below.
