Once again matches the lowest price it's been according to camelx3. Yes there are cheaper monitors with similar specs, but this one specifically has USB-C that can charge your laptop at the same time.

I almost bought the LG yesterday when I saw this price but went with its direct competitor, the Dell U2720Q. While presently over $100 more, the Dell warranty is longer (3 vs 2), I trust Dell ever so slightly more on warranties, and the LG has had screen issues in the 1-2 year timeframe.

I have the 600L, paid $350, and so far so good. Same deal in terms of stand and panel, but the 850 includes that USB-C dock functionality which I must admit would actually be super nice to have for plugging in my work laptop, but wasn't willing to pay such a big premium for it. As far as picture quality goes, it's good for the price, perhaps a little better than for the price. The stand is dumb though. I have it right next to a ASUS ROG PG279Q and the combo works pretty well. The ASUS for gaming (cuz 1440/144), the LG for media consumption.

Been using the 27UL600 (should be identical other than ports and external features) since last year. No complaints, and I'd never go back to QHD or lower. Pristine quality.

If you don't need USB-C and plan to use your own stand or VESA mount, it could be worth waiting, as the same panel in models with fewer frills has gone for $300 on sale repeatedly (I paid $300 last BF).

Both Windows 10 and macOS handle scaling just fine nowadays, so all the worrying about text being too small is completely overblown. I use both a PC and a work MacBook connected to this regularly. In both cases, it took 30 seconds in the OS's display settings to make the size of text and other UI elements comparable to my old 27" QHD display.

Does this mean that the battery will just slowly drain under heavy load or a mbp16 will complain about the connection and it'll cause issues?
I se this for 8 hours a day with a 2019 15" and have zero issues. I downscale to 1440p and notice no issues as well. For me, it's the perfect monitor to pair with a MacBook Pro.

I use this monitor as my main productivity monitor at the full 4k with 150% scaling.

It looks amazing.

I also use it for xbox one x gaming.

Looks amazing.

I am a network engineer so I'm in CLI, email, azure, all day long.

It does not do real hdr and interestingly enough the HDR like mode looks better than when the monitor detects HDR and switches to real HDR.

It simply doesn't have a wide enough gamut nor bright enough screen for hdr, however without HDR, the proper calibration movies and video games look awesome.

If this is your budget and these are your use cases, you will not regret this monitor.

He referenced being able to get one next year for a reasonable cost. I was sharing a monitor scheduled to release this year for a reasonable cost. No need to be snide.

Purchased this monitor this time last year for the standard price of $450, I don't regret it at all. Excellent monitor, and I hated spending this much at the time ... but absolutely love the quality and features. The usb-c function certainly adds to the price premium, but was worth it for longevity. Just plugged in my Xbox to it and was blown away by the picture. My only downfall is my PC can only support 4k @ 30hz, so it regularly set lower at 1440 (2k), my fault but you won't regret this monitor. Hope it lasts me a while.

Fully agree. High-ish cost, but great use if you're behind the computer all the time.

is 4k necessary on a screen this size? also what is most important in a monitor? panel type? refresh rate? resolution? HDR?

i bought a 27" 1440p 60hz IPS monitor on Amazon that I like but I have until the end of the month to return.

How is this one compared to the dell U2720q? That one is $530 right now. Any chance to a lower price? Otherwise I will take this one then.

How would texts look at 4K on a 27 incher? Is it still sharp or blurry if the resolution is scaled down to non-native QHD 2K or FHD 1080p?
If you want to scale down the resolution because you think in 4k res things look too small (text), just stay in 4k res but zoom in to 150% that'd be the equivalent of having a 1440p in size of items, but no sharp edges, and also text would look amazing. and 200% zoom would be the equivalent of how big text would be on a 1080p screen, but the detail is mindblowing.
