What customers say about "Features"
LG 27UL500 UHD IPS Monitor
  • I've been using this monitor a lot now with my Xbox One X, and it really is amazing!
  • The monitor has 4 HDR modes: HDR Vivid, HDR Game, HDR Standard, HDR Cinema.
  • I really like the back - it's white and looks very clean.
  • There is a cool mode called "HDR Effect" which basically turns any content into super bright super vivid colors, and that seems to work with the gaming features.
  • Amazing picture quality, great size, good stand. Highly recommend.
LG 27UK850 4K UHD HDR IPS Monitor
  • The stand is very nice and feels like a quality product.
  • Stand has a smooth height adjustment and can rotate to portrait.
  • The sound system seemed fine, but I rarely use the speaker system.
  • Speaker gets the job done, but don't expect anything hifi.
  • It's a little frustrating to have to adjust the brightness for room conditions and the quality of the plastic is certainly at the lower end.
