About this deal

There was a decent 292 cd/m 2 adjustment range in total, so at the minimum setting you could reach down to a luminance of 72 cd/m 2. Ocuk Limited trading as Overclockers UK is a credit broker, not a lender, and is Authorised and Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Performance at fixed refresh rates including maximum – this is important for those who have a powerful enough system to consistently output a frame rate to meet the max refresh rate capability of the screen. They each have a 144Hz refresh rate, but the LG is overclockable to 160Hz for a slightly smoother feel. This is fairly simple to summarise to be honest – these are TN Film-like response times from a VA panel! We have never really felt like a 27″ screen like the smaller G7 model we tested needs a curve in the first place to be honest. While text looks sharp thanks to its 4k resolution and high pixel density, some letters aren't as bold as on other 32-inch, 4k displays like the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 S32BG85.

This provides quick and intuitive access to the menu where there are a range of settings and options to play with. The white point was also now improved to 6511k which was great news, although out of the box there had been minimal deviance there of only 2% being slightly too warm. However, its picture quality is disappointing in dark rooms due to its low contrast ratio, and it doesn't get bright enough to make highlights truly pop in HDR.

The black to grey transitions along the top row of the table were overall very good relative to other VA panels and this meant low levels of black smearing on moving content, something that normally plagues VA panels. IPS panel delivers clear colours and a wide 178-degree viewing angle for clarity from any viewpoint. The sRGB preset mode offers a reasonable emulation of the sRGB colour space, and you can see from the CIE diagram that the black triangle representing the monitors gamut now more closely matches the sRGB reference triangle. Revolutionary Quantum Matrix Technology with Quantum Mini LEDs creates controlled brightness and perfect contrast for refined definition.This did deliver a better overall gamma setup, but seems to introduce some minor banding in darker gradients. Note: if you want to test your own screen for backlight bleed and uniformity problems at any point you need to ensure you have suitable testing conditions. Bold designs recreate real-time game lighting to surround you in the scenery on and off screen with CoreSync. There is an sRGB emulation mode offered by this screen though which helps cut down on some of the red and green over-coverage, but still leaves you with a slightly wider gamut than sRGB at around 116% coverage. A surcharge equal to the amount of the discount you received will apply if you do not recycle or have your product ready for recycling.

Overall, the feature does little to improve the picture quality in dark scenes and make blacks deeper. Besides that, the LG gets brighter and has better reflection handling, so it's the better choice for use in well-lit rooms. If you would like to get early access to future reviews please consider becoming a TFT Central supporter. If they are not then this can lead to some additional smearing and blurring on moving content as the pixels can’t keep up. The main difference is that the Neo G7 has a VA panel with Mini LED backlighting, resulting in a much better contrast and local dimming feature.

G-Sync compatibility keeps the GPU and panel synced up to reduce any choppiness, screen-lag, or image tears. Samsung have now released their new “Odyssey” line-up of screens, boasting high 240Hz refresh rates in a range of sizes and with some impressive additional specs.
