LG UltraFine 27UP850 27" 4K Monitor (2021)

MSRP 550 USDNeoscore 87%

Product Overview

LG UltraFine 27UP850 is a midrange 27-inch 4K UHD IPS monitor with 95% DCI-P3 coverage, DisplayHDR 400 support, and integrated USB-C hub with 96W Power Delivery.
Sharing many features with the 27GP950, the 27UP850 uses a more conventional IPS panel rather than the Nano IPS unit. Its 10-bit panel offers rich color gamut and high dynamic range, though it is not optimized for speed. Still, this monitor supports AMD FreeSync, making light gaming an option, too.
A unique feature of the 27UP850 is the built-in USB-C hub that many UltraFine monitors boast. Its upstream USB-C port is able to deliver 96W to connected laptop.
The 27GP850 comes with an ergonomic stand that offers tilt, height, and pivot adjustments.
