QHD IPS models with triple-digit refresh rates offer an attractive mixture of pixel density, colour quality, responsiveness and affordability. The LG UltraGear 27GS75Q (27GS75Q-B owing to the mainly black rear) offers such an experience. The screen includes a ‘penguin foot’ stand base with dark matte finish used for the stand and bottom bezel. The bottom bezel also includes a protruding area which houses some of the electronics. The top and side bezels are dual-stage, with slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen plus thin hard plastic outer part. The OSD (On Screen Display) takes the form of a central joystick beneath the bottom bezel.

The front view

A 27″ 2560 x 1440 (QHD or 1440p) IPS-type panel is used, with 180Hz (200Hz OC) refresh rate and Adaptive-Sync. This allows VRR technologies such as Nvidia ‘G-SYNC Compatible’ and AMD FreeSync to be used. A matte anti-glare screen surface is adopted – whilst a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles and 8-bit colour are specified (10-bit+ supported via scaler dithering). A flicker-free WLED backlight provides a 99% sRGB colour gamut and 300 cd/m² typical maximum luminance. Basic HDR10 support is included, though the monitor lacks a high brightness, specified local dimming or wide enough gamut for a proper HDR experience. A 1ms grey to grey response time is specified (pinch of salt required), whilst a tilt, pivot and height adjustable stand is includedd. Provision for 100 x 100mm VESA mounting is also included. The ports face backwards in a recessed area towards the right side of the stand and include; DP 1.4, 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack and DC power input (external ‘power brick’).

The rear view

Further details can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor is listed for ~$300 USD (~£280).
