The UltraGear Gaming Monitor 27GL850-B from LG Electronics makes a high-quality manufactured impression. The device's operation using a button that resembles a joystick is pleasant and intuitive. The reaction speed of 1 ms, which enables a smooth image transmission, should be emphasized. In addition, the screen is the only one of all tested products that can be rotated by 90°.
The UltraGear Gaming Monitor 27GL850-B from LG Electronics comes in a package printed with information that can be opened easily. The user manual is available in English, German and many other languages, illustrated and clearly understandable. The contents are displayed on the 31.5-inch monitor in QHD (2560 x 1440). A driver CD and a warranty card are included, as well as a power-, HDMI- and display port and USB cable.
The One-Click-Technology makes it possible to set up the screen within a very short time. Then connect the screen to the power supply and a computer and you are ready to begin configuration.
In order to be able to evaluate and subsequently compare the image quality, we have developed a test image. The image can be used to analyse contrast, brightness, colour representation and sharpness. The colour blocks in the test image can be clearly differentiated from each other.
The brightness of the screen is 350 cd/m². The colour blocks on our test image can be clearly differentiated from each other.
The representation of the colours makes a very natural and at the same time rich and strong impression. The monitor convinces with a high colour fidelity.
Whether dynamic or still sequences, the images are displayed sharply and smoothly.
The UltraGear Gaming Monitor 27GL850-B from LG Electronics has a high viewing angle stability. The displayed content can be read horizontally and vertically, up to a viewing angle of 178°. The colours are still displayed true to the original, only the brightness changes a little.
Thanks to the low reaction speed of 1 ms, moving sequences are displayed sharply and without jerking.
Ergonomically, the monitor provides a high level of comfort. You have the possibility to adjust the height by up to 10 cm. You can also tilt the screen back and forth. In addition, the monitor is the only one of the products we tested that can be turned by 90°.
To enter the settings menu, change the game mode or the input, use the joystick-like button located centrally below the screen. The joystick is intuitive and very comfortable to use. Once in the menu, you can configure the screen according to your activities.
