The LG 27GN950 is a gaming monitor that has it all: 4K, 144Hz, DisplayHDR 600, adaptive sync, and of course, RGB. But is it a better buy than the 240Hz Samsung Odyssey G7? Depends…

  • Buy From Best Buy - Better Quality & Better Model 27 Inch Curve Gaming Monitor :

  • So I will mainly be playing the ps5 with this monitor. The most I am willing to spend is probably 550$. I can’t decide which monitor to go with because of all the options out there. I prefer 27 inch but I don’t mind a little smaller. I don’t love curved monitors. Which do you recommend I really have no idea what to go with because of all of the monitors.

  • I am on a pretty tight budget... so would the LG 27GN950 be worth it (because of 4K) or should i rather get the cheaper 27GN850 / 27GL850 instead? Is 4K even a thing for gaming anyway? What game can you truly run at 140fps in 4k? Even with the new gpu generation... this seems to be impossible.. or am i wrong? I am not playing single player games where i would care about immersion, image sharpness and what not. 100% of my games are multiplayer titles like CoD Warzone / Cold War. Is 1440p still the best for gaming? (for lets say the next 1-2 years at least). Or can i buy the 950 to be set for the future and set it to 1440p to get the FPS i need? Or would that come with some huge drawbacks?

  • Is it worth 4k 144hz for RTX 3000 series? Or AMDs BiG Navi lineup if they probably cant even hit 144hz? But im debating on going for it and in FPS Shooters downscaling to 1440p? Would that be better?

  • So I did buy the 27GN950. It looked great for everything I do. However I returned it. It had a real nasty habit of not coming out of sleep mode. Every 24 hours or so it would go into sleep mode and then not wake up. I have a Dell as my secondary monitor and no issues at all. Worked with LG support and no solution was found. They also said it doesn’t have firmware that a user can upgrade. So I wasn’t confident that the issue will ever be resolved and thus sent it back. I did learn two things out of this. 1- 4K is like putting on new glasses. You don’t know what you have been missing until you try it. 2- although 27” sounds large it really isn’t big enough for 4K. I found myself leaning into my desk. The 32 inch size would be the sweet spot for my desk so I’m looking for that in my next monitor.

  • I'll be upgrading sometime in December/January. I'm coming from a 24" 1080p 60Hz monitor though, and I've never actually tried 4K or 1440p. Never tried ultrawide or anything above 60Hz either. Sad, I know. My problem now is to know what to go for. I almost never play competitive, I play some single-player games and mostly multiplayer games. I value graphics mostly, I love watching beautiful scenery, however, the smoothness of higher Hz is something I really want to experience, also since I occasionally get into some PVP. I'm also very intrigued by this immersion I hear ultrawide provides. At the same time, I don't want to blow more than 800-900$ on the monitor, since I'm also a VR gamer, and will not be using the new monitor for all my gaming, just the non-VR ones. So in other words, I'm totally lost about what to go for. Any suggestions?

  • Can anyone who has actually used one of these comment on whether or not the use of display stream compression at 144 hz 4k on displayport 1.4 is truly visually lossless or not? I have found a lot of arguments on the internet, but it seems that none of those arguing for or against DSC have actually used it before.

  • So after seeing some benchmarks of the RTX 3080 the newest gpu is not able to game at 4K at 120-144fps right? correct me if im wrong. Does that make ultrawide gaming more interessting at 3840x1600 or 3440x1440 instead of 4K with 80-110 fps because the RTX 3080 cant mantain a stable 120-144fps at 4K? Let me know what you guys think! Thanks!

  • HELP! 2 days ago I bought this monitor and after 5 minutes of use I noticed something weird. I upgraded my "old" LG 27UL850 with this new LG 27GN950 and immediately noticed some very subtle horizontal lines/banding. And the weird part is that those lines are not all the time visible but most of the time they are...They include in the box 5k DP cable, tomorrow getting new 8k cable to see if that will help, also tried all the different connections and ports, updated monitors drivers and my gpu drivers,tried all LG software for this monitor and nothing... Does anyone has any idea what that could be? Or I just wasted my 950€?

  • Hey guys i'm looking to buy a monitor (4k preferably) to get back into gaming. I was a huge RTS nerd growing up and i'd like to play some Starcraft, Anno series, Age of Empires and overall perhaps 80% RTS and 20% racing and old FPS (Battlefield1? :) ) games. What would be the best option available, as of now, oct 2020, money not being a consideration, since i'd like to make a top of the line rig to enjoy my last gaming years lol. I'm looking into 27"- 36" range, i don't actually know if the 27" 4k or the smaller res 34-36" widescreen would be a better bet? ive seen a range of monitors in shops but couldn't decide on it. Thank you

  • It appears there will not be enough reasonably priced options for new 4k at 120 fps TV's and monitors that will be compatible and include all the new necessary features for the new consoles and new GPU's at 4k at 120 fps. Are there any new TV's and monitor options that will become available soon ... THIS YEAR??? It just sucks to spend all that money on new consoles and GPU's when there's just not very many good options for a reasonably priced TV or monitor to go with to tap all those new features. I wish the consoles and GPU's came with bundle options with new HDMI 2.1 TV and monitor options.
