Product Snapshot

Overview

The LG 27GN800-B is an affordable 2020 release that promises to deliver sublime color thanks to high color accuracy, and with support for a variable refresh rate, users will be assured of enjoying a smooth gaming experience that is devoid of screen tearing. The display also has a super quick 1ms response time, and with an input lag that’s as low as 4ms, they noted that there was no sluggishness or delay in responses. The gaming monitor boasts compatibility for GPUs that rely on either an NVIDIA G sync or AMD FreeSync graphics card, which is great for users that would like to switch their GPUs every now and then. It also comes with basic HDR support, and averaging about 11.7 pounds in weight, it is far easier to carry around compared to the 18.46 pound LG 27GL83A-B. Make sure to get to the end of this LG 27GN800-B review to find out what else the display has in store, and find out whether or not it can match up to some of the top computer monitors in the market.
