From the review -
The LG 27UK500-B has room to grow when it comes to color accuracy. With a 4.10dE, it easily loses among our comparison group. If you want a monitor without any visible color errors in the sRGB color space, the S2721QS is your best bet.

In HDR mode, the 27UK500-B fails to capture the entire DCI-P3 color space, with blue, red and cyan far from their outer triangle targets. Green is undersaturated and off-spec overall. The cyan and magenta are also shifted towards blue.

There are also no extra bells and whistles with the 27UK500-B. The stand doesn’t move, there are no speakers and the bezels could be thinner. For a feature-rich IPS experience, consider the Dell S2721QS.
I think that Dell S2721QS in question was on sale for $315, a more colour accurate, better looking, more features equipped monitor.

What does HDR10 mean for this monitor? Can it reach1000 nits?

Because someone is likely wondering:
If you want to do any serious gaming, you’ll want something with a higher refresh rate than the 27UK500-B's 60 Hz and a lower response time than its 5 ms. If you do decide to game, the 27UK500-B does have support for AMD FreeSync, which will fight screen tearing when paired with an AMD graphics card. Plus, you can run G-Sync on FreeSync monitors without Nvidia’s certification, although performance is not guaranteed.

More likely HDR400; getting to HDR1000 almost always needs OLED or full-array LED backlighting which is very expensive for computer monitors.

300 nits, no way to render HDR properly. Monitor labeled HDR10 means capable of accept HDR signals and convert to SDR.

I haven't seen a 27" 4k monitor under $300 in a while. Will see how it looks once it gets delivered.
