From our list of the Best HDR Gaming Monitors, the LG Ultragear is a good addition to your desktop setup. Since this monitor is g sync compatible, you can expect to enjoy the majority of new games in astounding detail. It includes an adjustable stand that you can tilt and pivot to any way you like. In a way, it includes some of the features you would expect from the best gaming monitor.

Why We Like It – LG Ultragear

The LG Ultragear gaming monitor has a wide color gamut that brings out detailed images in your content. This monitor also has a great refresh rate that will let you play your games without any distractions from lag. For a look at its cousin model, check out our LG 24ML600M-B review.

Pros
  • 1ms motion blur reduction helps bring clarity to pictures
  • HDR10 adds some more dynamic colors into the mix
Cons
  • No built-in speakers

Performance

This gaming monitor performs at a refresh rate of 144hz, which is common among other high-end models such as the ViewSonic xg3220. It also has Radeon Freesync technology that is known for providing smooth graphics and no broken frames, making it an ideal monitor for Call of Duty. Expect no motion blur or ghosting since there is a response time of 1ms while gaming. Although, if you game for several hours in a row, you might experience an IPS glow. It comes with an adjustable stand that you can tweak to your preference or you can use it with a wall mount.
