Product Overview

LG UltraGear 27GP850 is a midrange 27-inch QHD IPS gaming monitor that covers 98% of DCI-P3 color space and delivers 1ms response time and 165Hz refresh rate.
Thanks to LG's Nano IPS panel, the 27GP850 is able to combine TN-level speed with rich and precise color reproduction. Compared to the 4K 27GP950, the 27GP850 has a lower resolution at QHD and lower HDR ratio at VESA DisplayHDR 400, and omits the Sphere Lighting RGB lighting.
Unsurprisingly, the UltraGear 27GP850 is compatible with both NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync. It features an ergonomic stand that offers tilt, height, and pivot adjustments.
Alongside the 27GP850, LG also unveiled several other gaming monitors for its 2021 lineup.
