My Honest Review on LG 27GN800-B Gaming Monitor
I am writing this analysis as the former owner of 3 Asus PG279Qs and one PG279QZ. I have been drawn to this segment of the market for monitors because I do not feel that 4K screens are worthwhile it at this specific point in time. As far as I can see, the majority are weakened as the bandwidth requirements for operating 4:4:4 chromium subsampling, an increased color gamut, a refresh rate of 144 Hz and well beyond, and a resolution of 3840×2160 all at the same time will be much ideally adapted by DP 1.5 or HDMI 2.1 (the correct HDR will not hurt either). While it may be claimed that reaching 144 frames at 1440p is more resource expensive than 60 frames at 2160p, I agree the interaction is the most immersive, at least before 144+ frames become possible at 4K. Unfortunately, focused on the price-to-performance ratio pattern of the latest generation of graphics cards (Nvidia’s in particular), it would take a long, long period of time to do this at a fair price. All matters aside, I can honestly say that I’ve reached my sweet spot with the LG 27GN800-B displays. It answered all of the quality management issues I’ve faced in my search to try to get a high refresh rate, 1440p IPS-type monitor. Being that this is an LG device, the display should properly be referred to as having an IPS (In-Plane Switching) screen as this is its patented word for tech that produces a broader variety of colors and viewing angles.
