Product Overview

LG 27GN650 UltraGear is a 27-inch FHD gaming monitor based on the 27GN600, on which LG has thrown in a monitor stand with not only tilt but also height and pivot adjustments. It is otherwise identical to the latter.
Beyond its display diagonal, the 27GN650 is also identical to the 24GN650 from the same generation. Compared to the 27GL650F from 2019, however, the 27GN650 is not a true improvement: notably the newer model is down in maximum brightness.
For even higher refresh rate, LG markets the 27GN750, among others. The range tops out at a 4K 27GN950 (for which the "950" model number should already tell you all you need to know).

Sentiment Score 44%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The LG 27GN650-B is great for gaming because it has low input lag, a high refresh rate, fast response times, and VRR support. It's good for work and media consumption, but its 1080p resolution might be too low for some. It doesn't get bright enough for a true HDR experience, has a low contrast ratio, and lacks local dimming.
