LG 27UD88-W 4K monitor review

 

Watch your fingers! LG's 27UD88 looks sharp even with the screen off.

LG 27UD88-W Monitor Review — Beautiful But Pricey 4K

 

There's no denying that the 27UD88-W is a beautiful monitor that displays gorgeous games in full 4K resolution. There's also no denying that it's considerably more expensive than something like the Acer B286HK : another 4K gaming monitor that looks...

Bright, colorful display ; FreeSync plays nicely with AMD machines ; Elegant, simple design ; USB-C port and quick charge support

Pricey ; Not enough worthwhile presets ; Lackluster PBP options
