It's 1080p. I would never buy a 1080p monitor of that size unless it was intended to be set back quite a distance from the viewer. At 27 inches, I'd go for 3k. You get a lot more information on the screen and the qualiy of the picture is drastically higher.

FYI 1080, not the 1440. But still a good price for the gtg/refresh rate, although 27” inch for 1080 is pushing it.

I really feel like the sweet spot for gaming/FPS intensive is 24”, 1080, 1ms, 144hz

if you have a small desk you can rotate the second one vertically, perfect for long scrolling websites and code.
no 1440p kinda sucks tho...

I was debating between this and the 2-pack 24" AOC 1080p (75hz) on costco.ca.

I bought both and used them for a week or so.

144hz + G-SYNC is amazing. The HDR less so. It doesn't get bright enough to take advantage of HDR. The colors out of the box is better than the AOC (duh). However, I got the AOC first, then this. Coming from a 24" 1080p, this is noticeably more blurry. Is it THAT bad? No. It's perfectly usable. But to me, since I experienced 1080p on a 24", I can tell the difference and that is enough for me to return it. The price is another factor also. For the price of 1 LG, I can get 2 24" monitors. Yes, it's not G-SYNC capable and it's only 75hz, but I'd rather use that in the meantime while waiting for a good deal on a 27" 1440, 144hz, G-SYNC compatible monitor.

One concerning thing is when you plug in the power barrel into the monitor, you need to push REALLY hard (flexing the entire PCB). All the ports kind of cave/move in when you push in the plug.

Excellent timing! I was going to get the 27GL650F-B model from Staples when it's back in stock at $350. I personally don't think I would mind the low resolution, but that's still remain to be seen.

In my opinion, without testing it myself yet, it's absolutely worth spending $250 less to get the 1080p version of this monitor than LG 27GL850-B, although I am not sure what else I am sacrificing here with this lower end model. One concern I have with the 1440p model is whether or not my currently specs have enough power to run games at 1440p, so I figured it's safer to go with this one until I upgrade my system in the future. If anyone who has more knowledge in these LG monitors can compare these two models for me, it would be greatly appreciated.

By the way, where does OP learn about this deal?

How much is your video card that can drive 4k? FHD sucks for 27", yes, but it has it's place. I have a 4k 28", and I regret it. Should have gotten a QHD 27" instead. 4k is ass for windows scaling and I can't drive any games at 4k anyways. It's nice for media consumption, but that's it.

I connect my PS4 PRO to 4K monitor,when I watch 4K movies I connect my Alienware M15 to,

FHD is really out of fashion,especially costs more than $200.

buy 27-32inch 4K monitor then switch resolution to FHD,at least in future you can switch resolution back to 4K.

great buy. too bad I already got an AOC monitor for my triple-monitor build and don't wanna deviate with different monitors. I have a 27" 1080p and I am gaming from an arm's length away. no issue at all. don't let these people discourage you. I rather have 1080p with high refresh rate than 1440p with mediocre frame rates.

For a second there I thought this was the 27" 1440p version - now that would have been flaming hot. Disappointed that one hasn't come down in price.

27" at 1080p is very usable and can look very good depending on the display. I bought the LG 32" monitor from Costco a few months back and it looks great. I don't know many people who game at 1440p or 4k, so 1080p is perfect for most people.

You weirdos can't really be serious, can you?
More laptops are sold in 1920x1080 than in any other resolution. These cheap screens are fantastic as daily drivers if you *shocked Pikachu face* don't really care about the resolution of Youtube videos and spreadsheets.
