    Main selling point is the QHD resolution, 72% NTSC CIE1931 (99% sRGB coverage) and IPS display at this price point. It's also not a curved LCD which some people will appreciate.

    Currently $399 from Umart so it's definitely not a bad price but LG marketing must be kidding themselves if they are calling a 75hz monitor a gaming capable one. Should be okay if you just want a monitor for casual games or for consoles that are capped at 60 FPS

      Any monitor is capable of gaming.

      Adaptive sync is still a gaming feature you don't always in other monitors.

      I agree mostly. But I got a 2080 which is fairly high end and a 144hz monitor and most the games I play(high end) rarely go above 70-80fps so it kinda works out alright as a gaming monitor.

        70-80 fps sounds a bit rubbish for a 2080, heck my old rx480 generally does better than that.

        Unless of course your punishing that 2080 with a 4K panel.

          I got the Kogan cheapie 144 hertz monitor so only 2560 x 1440 - https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/kogan-27-curved-qhd-144hz-frees...

          They are AAA games, and I usually always max out the settings. Games like Ghost Recon:Breakpoint, Modern Warfare, Read Dead 2. Star Wars: Fallen Order etc. You think I should still be getting higher FPS? If so, what should I be looking into? I did set up the computer myself and I know I put the graphics card in the wrong PCI slot but from what I read it should barley cause any issues whatsoever. All my drivers are up to date etc. I do have 2 monitors hooked up to it, the other being a samsung 4k but it's always off, I only use it for work to have the extra real estate. PC Specs below.

          Thermaltake View 71TG
          Ryzen 1920x Threadripper CPU
          4 x Team Group Elite 2400 8GB DDR4 RAM
          Galax RTX2080
          Corsair H80i v2 water cooler
          ROG Strix x399E Gaming motherboard -
          AlliedSSD 240GB hard drive
          Thermaltake LitePower 750w PSU
          Case RGB LED light strip

          Extras added myself:
          Samsung 500GB SSD, 970 EVO Plus, M.2 NVMe

          EVGA 750W SuperNOVA G2 Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS GOLD

            @snagseb: Hey mate interested to know what you mean by putting it in the wrong pcie slot… It's in a pcie x16 slot right? Or is there multiple… Even then they tend to be diff colour to other pcie slots kinda like hey here iam Hahaha

              @scud70: Correct, it had 4 going from memory. But I went into the bios one day and it does have slot 2(I think) as the primary slot for single graphics card installations, where as I used 3 I think. I did some reading online, most said it would not even matter at all really, but it has always had me wondering! And now with people saying I should be getting more FPS, it's got me a bit paranoid haha.

                @snagseb: Ooh gotcha can't see why that would make any difference, so it's interesting that the bios refers to a primary port in a single gpu setup… I personally don't see anything wrong with the frame rates you are getting at Max settings on those games… :)

            @snagseb: I just tested Star Wars: Fallen Order and got an average of about 82fps on my 2080 on a 2560x1440 display on maximum settings. So it seems about right.

    This is an excellent price, really tempted. Would rather a 27" though.

    Great find. Have been monitoring ebay on this exact model and cheapest I could find was $311 delivered. Only play games every so often but will use this as a work from home screen so real estate will be great.

    Have this monitor for a while, this is a whole $100 cheaper than what I paid :'(

    Overall good monitor for what it is, no built-in speaker only headphone out, slim arc metal stand pretty sturdy, the usual IPS glow from not looking straight on maybe better than some cheaper models, uses BOE panel not particularly bright but enough for normal use, can use LG software to quickly alternate between picture modes, no picture in picture mode. The only annoying thing for me, it doesn't auto switch to the connection with active signal, say you switch off your PS4 on HDMI, it doesn't auto switch to PC on display-port, the joystick isn't the quickest way to navigate around menus especially without dedicated custom function button(s), you have to do it all using your hand EVERY SINGLE TIME, if you can stomach this flaw, get this monitor now.
