Picture Quality

The picture quality of the LG 27GL83A is good. The monitor has a wide color gamut, can display vibrant HDR colors, and can be bright enough for most games in HDR.

As expected for an IPS monitor the LG 27GL83A has a low native contrast ratio. Sadly, blacks would look more like gray in a dark room. The LG 27GL83A has good horizontal viewing angles, like most IPS monitors For reasonably large angles, the image remains accurate.


For almost any use the LG 2783A is a very decent monitor It has outstanding performance and remarkably low input lag, that’s great for gaming.

It has wide viewing angles and high peak brightness.

The LG 27GL83A is an outstanding game monitor with an extremely low input lag and a very fast response time. it also supports FreeSync for almost tear-free gaming.

Design & Connectivity

The design of the LG 27GL83A is good with decent height and tilt adjustment, but it can’t swivel. The G-Sync compatible 27-inch UltraGear QHD IPS 1ms 144Hz monitor features 3-Side Virtually Borderless bezel.

  • Vesa Mount Support Yes
  • VESA Interface Standard Size 100 x 100
  • Removable VESA Stand Yes

The LG 27GL83A stand makes the entire build look thicker which is very similar to other LG UltraGear monitor stands and supports the LG 27GL83A well.

The overall build is for this monitor is mostly made of plastic.

Other features include Tilt / Height / Pivot Adjustable Stand.

LG 27GL83A Review

Should you Buy

Stick with a 240Hz panel if you want the best gaming performance. However, if you are ready to make a small performance adjustment for a big-picture quality leap, then you should consider LG 27GL83A.

The truth is that most panels come with the significant performance or picture quality reductions. Yet I can say that LG brings you in all metrics near top grades and will leave but the most stable buyers happy with their multimedia and gaming experience.

That’s why the LG 27GL83A monitor hits enough boxes to be considered as the best IPS FreeSync Gaming Monitor.

I highly recommend grabbing this monitor and seeing for yourself.

For those looking for a monitor with good performance in media creation and multimedia, the resolution and size make a perfect choice.
