abunda_amazon_reviews Who am I? A techy, with disposable income for new toys within reason. What am I using this monitor for? Xbox One X. I have NOT used this monitor with a computer yet...yet. Okay so I waited since like December for this thing, after looking at and comparing countless monitors. Finally an "HDR" Freesync Monitor, with good response time and 4K.... Every Xbox gamers dream right? I fired this thing up yesterday and boom.... underwhelmed..... it looked bad out of the box, then i played with all the settings. Turn the Brightness WAY up, and leave the black enhancement at low. And all of a sudden everything looked amazing. Day 1: Playing fortnite doesnt have HDR, so I loaded up destiny 2 (ew) for to see how to activate HDR, since i couldnt find any settings to just turn it on. Boom, on top right corner it displays HDR, and when you go into the settings its an entirely different picture menu, with a few different HDR settings, including a GAME HDR mode. I do not think you can have HDR on, and the input lag booster or freesync enabled at same time, as When HDR is on, the game settings menu gets grayed out. The game looked INSANE in 4k with the HDR mode on, so crisp and saw colors I had never seen before. For what its worth, the HDR mode that enables when you play an HDR game is PLENTY bright. It only goes up to 450 Nits of brightness in this mode, but for a 27 inch monitor, that is right in front of you, any brighter and you may have to look away or tone it down for gaming. So for all the people mentioning that this "is not a real HDR monitor, its not even 600 nits" Think about what you are using this screen for first. If it is gaming, this is very good. The HDR on this screen is far brighter than a middle range LG TV I have that has "HDR" as well. PSA: Both HDMI ports support 4K/60HZ and Freesync. For NON HDR Games, There is a cool mode called "HDR Effect" which bascally turns any content into super bright super vivid colors, and that seems to work with the gaming features since it is not actual HDR. I will continue to update this review, as well as try different modes (Ex: Hook it up to a iMac 5k, a Macbook, a PC, and watch a 4k HDR blue ray on it over the next 2 weeks.;;Reviewed in the United States on February 7, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;4k + HDR + Decent price = Great Xbox Screen.;;Eric Cronin;;;I am a CTO who has connected this to a 2018 Mac Mini and use it for both work and personal activities. I also have a mid 2015 MacBookPro which I love for the clarity of its retina display. I run the latest and greatest version of OSX (currently Mojave) on both of these machines. Prior to this purchase, I had the mini hooked up to a 23" 1900 x 1200 Apple Cinema Display circa 2002 (that is not a typo). It was surprisingly good but always made me wish I was looking at retina-quality output. I'm taking the trouble to write this review because I found other people's reviews helpful in my decision to purchase this monitor (LG 27UK650-W 27). I've had it for 2 full work weeks, am extremely happy with it, and have avoided a lot of mistakes by reading other people's reviews. I'm paying it forward. Advice: 1) use a DP cable not the HDMI cable; I used this and it worked immediately with no hassle: CHOETECH USB C to DisplayPort Cable 4K@60Hz, USB 3.1 Type C to DisplayPort Cable 2) be careful not to touch the front of the panel when unpacking it, moving it, adjusting its height or rotating the display; always do this from the top/bottom or the sides; it's not hard to do this - just be mindful 3) know that the display does not have speakers, just a stereo out jack 4) download the Onscreen Control app from LG's website; makes it easy to do the adjustments you will make most frequently 5) spend a little bit of time learning to use the joystick located underneath the bottom frame so that you can use the built-in Onscreen Control Center. This lets you do more advanced adjustments. 6) if you are using VMware Fusion (I run Windows 10 for certain things) you will need to go to the Virtual Machine => Settings => Display panel and deselect "Accelerate 3D Graphics" if you want to go full-screen with it. Otherwise it will be unusable. But you *can* can select "Accelerate 3D Graphics" and use Single Window mode. *** Subsequent correction: if you like you can leave "Accelerate 3D Graphics" selected and increase the amount of Shared Graphics Memory to the recommended amount (for me 1024MB). 7) familiarize yourself with how to use MacOS's Spaces (multiple desktops); you won't want to maximize your apps to full-screen; they're just too big. But you still may want to place apps in different desktops. After connecting the DP to USB C adapter, turning on the monitor and powering up the Mac mini, it just worked. I knew I was in a good place when I entered System Preferences => Display and saw the same scaling choices as I see on my MBP. See the first image. The default resolution was too big for me (1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz). The second image shows my current choice (2560 x 1440 @ 60 Hz). Obviously screen resolution is a matter of personal taste; I find this to be the right trade-off between font size and screen real-estate. The text as I type this has the same clarity as my retina display but on a big monitor. I suppose I might decide to shrink the font smaller (3008 x 1692 @ 60 Hz) to get more real-estate. The point is that I have the choice - either one looks great. Other Observations: * Night shift works. * Screen saver / sleep mode works. * You will be surprised by how far away the menu bar at the top of the screen is from many of the apps * As near as I can tell, the display has no dead pixels. Or maybe they're so tiny that I just can't see them. * I don't see the IPS bleed that some people complain about. Both my Windows and my Mac backgrounds are black and I don't perceive bleed. (See two images). * The stand feels sturdy to me. I am not a gamer. I work with text and numbers all day long and my apps look great. Although I am not a graphic designer, I spend a lot of time on images and graphs and they look great to my eyes. I can't comment about the calibration of the display but the colors look good to me. After 2 weeks of extensive use I'm a happy camper. Fingers crossed that the monitor's reliability is as great as its looks. I hope this helps. Just an update: after 6 weeks of using this monitor my view hasn't changed: I continue to love it. Another update: 6 months in and no change to my review. Not a moment's problem with the hardware.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 12, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;From the perspective of a technology manager, not a gamer.;;Tribeca Mikey;;;First of I am a gamer that plays nothing but FPS on PC and Xbox One X.

(See two images). * The stand feels sturdy to me. I am not a gamer. I work with text and numbers all day long and my apps look great. Although I am not a graphic designer, I spend a lot of time on images and graphs and they look great to my eyes. I can't comment about the calibration of the display but the colors look good to me. After 2 weeks of extensive use I'm a happy camper. Fingers crossed that the monitor's reliability is as great as its looks. I hope this helps. Just an update: after 6 weeks of using this monitor my view hasn't changed: I continue to love it. Another update: 6 months in and no change to my review. Not a moment's problem with the hardware.

4.0 out of 5 stars

The Monitor is great but, my 1080p 144hz freesync asus is still better.
First of I am a gamer that plays nothing but FPS on PC and Xbox One X. I got this for my Xbox since it met all the specifications the X needs. I hooked it up to my X after using my 27in asus 144hz amd freesync on variable refresh rate (an xbox picture setting). My first impression was wow the graphics on COD black out look nice, then actually playing started noticing lots of lag drop frames. Went back to my Asus monitor and realized how much better my 1080p monitor was. Item was returned. Good try LG, nice monitor though if you just want to play on 4k HDR single player games, movies, 4k videos this is your monitor. If you want to compete and actually have an advantage, this is not your monitor. oh and the stand feels cheap. BTW I love LG products i own 2 4k TVs if that matters.
