    LG’s claim that their new UltraGear lineup of gaming monitors sport 1ms pixel response time is pretty alluring, especially since they already have high refresh rate (144Hz), Adaptive-Sync variable refresh rate, and Nano Cell accurate colors! Check it out here:

      Not as good as 240 hz, but it's a great monitor, it would be a good buy

      Best 2019 monitor is the AOG monitor with 240mhz 0.5s

      Bought this monitor just 2 weeks after it came out through a rep at Best Buy in Calgary. Payed $200 SO WORTH IT. I went from a shitty 1680x1050 VGA DVI 59 hz monitor to this one. Now that's what I call an upgrade. have to say its THE best monitor I've ever had. The options for the cross hair oddly work out for a lot of games like: L4D1&2, CSGO, CSS, Gmod, HL1, HL2, 7DTD, R6S, KF1&2, etc. If you're game has a accurate but hard to see cross hair/reticle THIS makes aiming in some of those games really easy. Not trying to act like a sponsor, but this monitor truly deserves credit. Personally I recommend the Red Plus cross hair for Killing Floor, Gmod, Half-life, Rainbow 6 Siege, Left 4 Dead 1&2, and 7 Days to Die.

                                      @Zazie900 tried to search the availability of LG and it's nowhere to be found unless you'd like a renewed item from amazon or you're in canada. Would go with Asus not because of the quality but availability :3

                                            A 60hz 4K monitor with a va panel, the Xbox one x like any other console can only output 60 FPS so it would be a waste of money, but it can output 4K so 4K would be worth it

                                          PSA: If you're looking for an alternative to this for less money, check out the LG 27GL83A-B. It is practically the same exact monitor except it is sRGB and doesn't support DCI P3 or HDR. Some even say it has better contrast than the LG 27GL850. The LG 27GL83A-B is $380 USD on Amazon.

                                                    exact same model, there's just one version of this product, "-B" it's naming conventions for specific markets.
