If you’re in the market for a new gaming monitor, have I got some great news for you. The LG 27GN800 display is on sale right now, and I can personally attest to its quality, since I bought one earlier in the year for full price like an idiot.
144Hz 1440p Gaming Monitor Deal

I feel like 27″ in the sweet-spot for desktop displays, and 1440p at 144Hz gives you a real nice picture, too. I like mine a lot, although it did require some fiddling with the settings both in Windows and the monitor itself to lock in the best color. If you want to take it a step further and calibrate it, knock yourself out. At this price, it’s a stupendous bargain.
The on-screen menu is pretty slick and there’s a program you can download to run the settings directly from Windows rather than through the OSD. For gaming, I have no complaints. The 1ms response time is nice, since my last monitor had that turbo-mode nonsense that only pretends to be 1ms, and was really smear-y when gaming mode was turned on. Not so with this LG. If it isn’t true 1ms, I couldn’t tell.
For the full breakdown of this display, you can check out our LG UltraGear 27″ monitor review. I didn’t write it, but I agree with pretty much the whole thing.
