New LG UltraGear 27GR95QE, features, price and technical sheet

  • 13

At the end of last August, LG introduced its UltraGear OLED 45GR95QE, a gaming monitor equipped with a 45-inch curved OLED panel. What makes it attractive is that it is the first device with an organic 1,440p panel (3,440 x 1,440 points) capable of working with a refresh rate of 240hz.

Curiously, this weekend the American subsidiary of this brand has published in their website the characteristics of a new monitor of the UltraGear family that has a lot in common with the 45GR95QE, but with a more affordable format. And it is that the 27GR95QE is committed to a 26.5-inch 240 Hz 1440p OLED panel that, on paper, looks really spectacular.

On paper it has everything a discerning gaming enthusiast could ask for.

The heart of this monitor is, as we have just seen, a 26.5-inch 10-bit OLED panel with a 2,560 x 1,440-dot resolution. Its ability to work at a refresh rate of up to 240hz makes it very attractive for competitive play, but this is by no means its only trump card.

According to LG, this screen offers us a native contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1, a feature that fits like a glove with what we can expect from an OLED monitor. Its blacks should be very deep, but this mark gives us another important clue that allows us to guess what its image quality is like: it manages to cover 98.5% of the DCI-P3 color space. If so, it should resolve the colorimetry with richness and precision.

There goes another impressive specification: its response time is, according to LG, of only 0.03ms (GtG). Organic matrices typically have very low response times (OLED TVs typically give us around 1ms), but the response time on this display is astonishingly low, so motion blur should be imperceptible. In addition, it is assumed to have minimal input latency, so it should give us very precise control in any game.

On the other hand, this monitor is compatible with NVIDIA’s G-SYNC adaptive refresh technologies and AMD’s FreeSync Premium. In addition, it can deal with HDR10 content, and the two HDMI inputs that it incorporates implement the 2.1 standard, so it is also compatible with the VRR technology that this specification proposes. We have no objection in this area.

Of course, it does not incorporate speakers, so whoever decides to get it will be forced to use headphones or loudspeakers that, ideally, are up to their image quality to fully embroider the experience. One last note to conclude: its horizontal and vertical viewing angles touch 178 degreesso in this area we have nothing to object to.

LG UltraGear 27GR95QE: price and availability

As we have just seen, on paper this gaming monitor is a joy. It has essentially everything an ambitious gamer could ask for in a state-of-the-art 1,440p monitor. We still don’t know when it will hit European stores, but possibly LG will officially present it during the next CES, so presumably we can buy it during the first quarter of 2023. Its price? 999.99 dollars (about 969 euros). Let’s cross our fingers so that the rates and the conversion to euros don’t hurt us European users.
