LG 27EA83-D


LG's graphics monitor looks good on paper, but fails to do the only thing it really needs to.

From the outside, the LG 27EA83 appears perfectly sound. For $999, you're getting a flexible, highly specialized display with a large screen and high resolution. Unfortunately, testing revealed that the LG 27EA83 has some flaws with its natural,...

Wow, very disappointed


Will report back again after I get a replacement, which will already cost me nearly $16 in shipping to send back to Newegg. Hopefully the second monitor isn't this bad. For a $700 monitor this is TOTALLY unacceptable. My old Samsung was half this price...

Great resolution, brightness and for such a large monitor was surprisingly light

Light bleed from almost the entire left side of the screen, with the botton-left corner being the worse culprit, made this an instant re-package and RMA

Just About Perfect....


Teething issues aside, I'm quite impressed. I'd certainly buy it again.

QHD resolution is a vast improvement from the 17" SXGA that I've been using for almost a decade. 10-bit RGB color accuracy is excellent. 27" is a perfect size for 1440p, as I find the pixel granularity of 1080p to be bothersome above a 24" format....

I've encountered serious issues on occasion when trying to "wake" devices [attached to this monitor] from a sleep state. If the monitor is not turned off before the device connected to it enters a sleep or hibernation state (as my power profile is set...

Display problem ruins otherwise stunning monitor


It is conceivable that all 3 of the computers in my house have the same output problem that is creating these diagonal lines, or that this is simply user error. However, after I returned the RMA replacement monitor, I picked up a cheap gateway monitor...

Physically, the hardware is attractive looking, and feels like it has solid, quality construction ; The controls are well intelligently laid out, and intuitive to use ; The display was bright and sharp, configured attractively out of the box. Viewing...

If the room is dark, the lighting wasn't even when displaying black/dark colors ; There were faint diagonal lines in the bottom half of the display. This occurred on all 3 computers I tried attaching to the monitor. I RMA'd it, but the replacement had...

Great Product, Great Price


After months of research and waiting, finally settled on this.Was on sale for 700 and it was worth it. I loved it so much I bought a second. The 2560 x 1440 resolution makes all the difference. It's also very aesthetically pleasing.

External Power Adapter bracket (great when using monitor arms), Perfect color, great viewing angle

Beautiful Contrast and vivid colors!


For the price I got this I am EXTREMELY happy with my purchase. If the stand were to be replaced with a heavier one, this monitor would be perfect.

Easy on the eyes, high contrast with no bleed through, vivid colors and menu navigation is a snap. The PIP (Picture in Picture) feature is very well done and maximum resolution is achieved with no scaling or distortion. The average user may not benefit...

The stand is a bit flimsy if you adjust the height of the monitor to the highest setting. The power cable has a wide body which prevented me from using the adjacent plugs on my surge strip. The monitor buttons are not mechanical, so if you accidentally...

When I first set this up I used my old HDMI cable. Mistake..All the text was garble. I then used the supplied, much heavier duty, HDMI cable and problem solved. Next the colors were amazing...But they seemed to have way to much pop. I started playing...
