Product Overview

LG UltraGear 27GP950 is a premium 27-inch 4K UHD IPS gaming monitor that covers 98% of DCI-P3 color space and delivers 1ms response time and 144Hz refresh rate.
Thanks to LG's Nano IPS panel, the 27GP950 is able to deliver TN-level speed with rich and precise color reproduction. In this case, it is also able to support not only HDR10 but also VESA DisplayHDR 600 in terms of dynamic range.
One of the fastest 4K IPS gaming monitors on the market, the 27GP950 is compatible with both NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync.
It further supports LG's Sphere Lighting 2.0 that allows the rear-mounted RGB lighting strip to sync with the audio or video to deliver an even more immersive visual experience.
Unsurprisingly, the 27GP950 comes with an ergonomic stand that offers tilt, height, and pivot adjustments.
Alongside the 27GP950, LG also unveiled at CES 2021 the 32GP850 and 34GP950G, while a few other 2021 gaming monitors have since joined the lineup.
