The LG 27GL850-B 27-inch Ultragear Nano IPS 1440p gaming monitor has dropped to a low price of $386.99 at Amazon. This monitor was selling for as much as $500 in March, and before this recent price drop the best deal we’d ever seen was a drop to $450 over a year ago that then happened again near the begining of April. Today’s sale is as good a price as you’re going to get one of LG’s most popular screens. It is down to a similar price at Best Buy, but Amazon has it beat by a couple extra bucks.

I personally use this monitor. I have two of them in fact, and they are great screens. One monitor is actually the LG 27GL83-A, the version that doesn’t include a USB hub, but the two displays are virtually identical and make a great pairing for my workstation. These monitors have always been popular and remain so because they have such a great balance of features and price.
What you’ll get is a 27-inch screen with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time. The display has an IPS panel, which is unusual for a monitor that can handle a 1ms response time. It does so using LG’s Nano IPS tech, and some reviews have said it’s one of the fastest response times ever measured for a panel like this.
It also has adaptive sync technology built into it. The native adaptive sync works with AMD’s FreeSync, so if you have an AMD graphics card you can reduce motion blur while gaming or watching high-octane action movies. It is also officially Nvidia G-Sync compatible, which means if you have a Nvidia graphics card from the 20xx series or newer you can plug it in via the DisplayPort to get G-Sync functionality. DP is also how you get the maximum 144Hz refresh rate, so it’s definitely the way to go.
You can adjust the tilt, height, and pivot of the stand the monitor comes with. It also has the Vesa 100 x 100mm standard on the back so you can mount it to an arm or the wall.
