The LG 27GP83B-B is a great monitor all-around, and it delivers a great gaming experience. It's the first true replacement to the very popular LG 27GL83A-B, and LG has succeeded at delivering a noticeable improvement over the previous model. It has a fast refresh rate, outstanding response time, and incredibly low input lag. The 27 inch, 1440p IPS screen is great for pretty much any usage, as it delivers great screen real estate, decent text clarity for office use, and for gamers, it doesn't tax your graphics card as much as 4k displays. It's limited in connectivity and extra features, with no USB hub, limited ergonomics, and no support for multiple inputs. It's not as good for a dark room, though, as it has low contrast and mediocre black uniformity, as expected for an IPS panel.

Our Verdict

8.0 Mixed Usage

The LG 27GP83B is a great monitor for pretty much any usage. It's a great gaming monitor with low input lag and an incredible response time. The 27 inch, 1440p screen is great for office use, multimedia, or media creation. It has exceptional gradient handling and can display a wide color gamut, making it a great choice for media creation. It looks great in bright settings, with very good reflection handling and great peak brightness. It's not as good in a dark room, though, as it has a low contrast ratio and mediocre black uniformity.

Pros
  • Wide viewing angles.
  • Excellent gray uniformity.
Cons
  • Blacks look gray in a dark room.
  • Limited ergonomics.
7.9 Office

The LG 27GP83B is a very good office monitor. The 27 inch, 1440p display delivers a great amount of screen real estate to work, and it has decent text clarity. It has very good reflection handling and high peak brightness in SDR, so glare shouldn't be an issue in a brighter office. It has wide viewing angles, so you can comfortably share your screen with someone else, but the stand has limited ergonomics, so it might be hard to place it in an ideal viewing position.

Pros
  • Very good reflection handling.
  • Wide viewing angles.
  • Excellent gray uniformity.
Cons
  • Limited ergonomics.
8.4 Gaming

The LG 27GP83B-B is a great gaming monitor. It has low input lag, so you can respond instantly to the action on-screen, and it has an incredible response time, resulting in clear motion with little blur. It supports FreeSync variable refresh rate technology (VRR), but it's also certified by NVIDIA to work with their G-SYNC VRR format. It performs almost as well when gaming at 60Hz, making this a great choice for console gamers.

Pros
  • Very good reflection handling.
  • Incredible response time, even at 60Hz.
  • Low input lag.
  • Variable refresh rate support on AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards.
Cons
  • Blacks look gray in a dark room.
  • Limited ergonomics.
7.9 Multimedia

The LG 27GP83B is a very good monitor for multimedia, as long as you're not in a dark room. The 27 inch, 1440p screen is great for watching videos. It has wide viewing angles, great for sharing the screen with a few friends, as well as very good reflection handling and high peak brightness, so glare shouldn't be an issue. On the other hand, since it has an IPS panel, contrast is low, so it doesn't look as good in a dark room.

Pros
  • Very good reflection handling.
  • Wide viewing angles.
  • Excellent gray uniformity.
  • Can display a wide color gamut.
Cons
  • Blacks look gray in a dark room.
  • Limited ergonomics.
8.0 Media Creation

The LG 27GP83B is a great monitor for media creation. The 27 inch, 1440p screen makes it easier to see more of your work at once, and the wide viewing angles are great for sharing the screen with someone else. It has excellent gray uniformity and exceptional gradient handling, and it can display a wide color gamut. Unfortunately, it has limited ergonomics, so it might be hard to place in an ideal viewing position, and it's not as well-suited for a dark room due to its low contrast ratio.

Pros
  • Very good reflection handling.
  • Wide viewing angles.
  • Excellent gray uniformity.
  • Can display a wide color gamut.
Cons
  • Blacks look gray in a dark room.
  • Limited ergonomics.
7.1 HDR Gaming

The LG 27GP83B is a decent monitor for HDR gaming, mainly due to its gaming performance. It has outstanding low input lag, an incredibly fast response time, and supports FreeSync variable refresh rate technology. Unfortunately, it has a low contrast ratio, one of the most important factors for a good HDR experience, and it doesn't have a local dimming feature. It has decent peak brightness in HDR, though, and games in HDR can stand out.

Pros
  • Incredible response time, even at 60Hz.
  • Low input lag.
  • Can display a wide color gamut.
  • Variable refresh rate support on AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards.
Cons
  • Blacks look gray in a dark room.
  • Limited ergonomics.
  • No local dimming.

Unfortunately, the LG 27GP83B has disappointing ergonomics, so it might be difficult to place it in an ideal viewing position. It has a great height adjustment range but a limited tilt range and can't swivel. It can rotate to portrait orientation for a dual-monitor setup, which is great, but only in one direction.

Build Quality

The LG 27GP83B has decent built quality, similar to the LG 32GP850-B. The stand and frame are entirely plastic and feel a bit cheap, but it's fairly solid overall. We didn't notice any bubbling or any other issues around the bezels.

Contrast With Local Dimming
N/A

Unfortunately, due to the IPS panel used in the LG 27GP83B, it has disappointing contrast. This results in blacks that look gray in a dark room but isn't very noticeable in a bright room. Contrast can vary between units, and although these results are a bit on the low side for an IPS panel, they're within the range posted by LG for this monitor (700:1 minimum, 1000:1 typical).

Calibrating this monitor impacted the contrast more than usual. Before calibration, we measured a contrast ratio of 944:1, which is closer to the typical contrast ratio for this model. The difference between the post-calibration and pre-calibration contrast isn't noticeable.

The LG 27GP83B has an incredibly fast response time at its max refresh rate. We recommend the 'Normal' overdrive setting, but the 'Fast' setting isn't terrible either, and some people may prefer it. The 'Faster' setting has terrible overshoot in many transitions, resulting in a noticeable trail of inverse ghosting behind fast-moving objects.

Even when gaming at 60Hz, this monitor has an outstanding response time. Almost all transitions at our recommended 'Off' setting fall well within the refresh rate window. Unfortunately, as this monitor doesn't support variable overdrive, we recommend manually switching the Response Time setting when you switch refresh rates. Although the 'Normal' setting we recommend at the max refresh rate is okay, there's more noticeable overshoot. The 'Fast' setting has even worse overshoot, and 'Faster' is unusable.

LG 27GP850-B

The LG 27GP83B-B and the LG 27GP850-B perform nearly identically overall. The 27GP850-B is a bit more feature-packed, with a higher refresh rate, an optional black frame insertion feature, and a built-in USB hub.

Gigabyte M27Q

The Gigabyte M27Q is slightly better than the LG 27GP83B-B, but the differences are minor overall. The Gigabyte has better vertical viewing angles, but the horizontal viewing angles are better on the LG. The LG has better reflection handling, but the Gigabyte we bought has slightly better contrast. Finally, the Gigabyte has an optional black frame insertion feature to reduce persistence blur.

LG 27GL850-B

The LG 27GP83B-B is a bit better than the LG 27GL850-B. The newer 27GP83B-B has a higher refresh rate, resulting in a better response time and less motion blur. The 27GP83B-B is also a bit brighter. The LG 27GL850-B has slightly better connectivity, though, as it has a built-in USB hub.

Dell S2721DGF

The Dell S2721DGF and the LG 27GP83B-B perform nearly identically. The Dell has better ergonomics, though, with a wider swivel range, better height adjustment, and it can switch to portrait orientation in either direction. The other differences between them are minor and can mainly be attributed to panel variance, but the LG we bought has better black uniformity, a slightly better response time, and better accuracy out of the box.

LG 27GL83A-B

The LG 27GP83B-B is the updated version of the LG 27GL83A-B, and it's a bit better than the older version. The 27GP83B has a faster refresh rate, slightly faster response time, and it's a bit brighter in HDR. The 27GP83B we tested also has better black uniformity, but this can vary between units.

MSI Optix MAG274QRF-QD

The MSI Optix MAG274QRF-QD is a bit better than the LG 27GP83B-B. The MSI has much better ergonomics, a wider color gamut, and better text clarity. The response time is similar between the two, but the MSI has an optional black frame insertion feature to reduce persistence blur. The MSI also has a bit better connectivity, with a built-in USB hub and a USB-C port.

LG 27GN850-B

The LG 27GN850-B and the LG 27GP83B-B are nearly identical, but the 27GP83B is more recent. The 27GP83B is brighter in HDR, has a slightly faster response time, as well as a faster refresh rate. Other than that, there are no real differences between them.

LG 27GN800-B

The LG 27GP83B-B and the LG 27GN800-B are similar, each with slight advantages over the other depending on your usage. The 27GP83B-B is brighter, and it has better ergonomics, with a decent height adjustment and the option to rotate it to portrait orientation. If you don't care about ergonomics, though, the 27GN800-B has an optional black frame insertion feature to reduce persistence blur.

ASUS ROG Strix XG27AQ

The ASUS ROG Strix XG27AQ and the LG 27GP83B-B perform very similarly, but the ASUS is a bit more robust. The ASUS has much better ergonomics, a built-in USB hub, slightly better text clarity, and it feels better-built. If those things don't matter to you, though, the LG has a slightly better response time, with less noticeable overshoot. The LG also has much lower input lag at 60Hz, making it a better choice for console gamers.

Acer Nitro XV272U KVbmiiprzx

The Acer Nitro XV272U KVbmiiprzx is a bit better than the LG 27GP83B-B for most people, with one major exception that may be a deal-breaker for some users. The Acer has much better ergonomics, an optional black frame insertion feature, better text clarity, and better connectivity, with a built-in USB hub. Unfortunately, though, the Acer isn't very bright, so if you're in a room with even a moderate amount of light, the LG is the better choice.

LG 32GP850-B

The LG 27GP83B-B and the LG 32GP850-B are very similar overall, but the 32GP850-B has a larger screen. The 32" model has a slightly faster refresh rate, and it has an optional black frame insertion feature, but other than that, there are no significant differences between these models.

ASUS ROG Strix XG27UQ

The ASUS ROG Strix XG27UQ is better than the LG 27GP83B-B for the most part, but some people might still prefer the LG. The ASUS has better ergonomics and much better text clarity, and it has an optional black frame insertion feature. On the other hand, the LG has better reflection handling, a faster refresh rate, and a better response time. The ASUS has a higher resolution screen, but this may actually be a downside for some gamers, as it's more taxing on your PC. If you prefer fast-paced, smooth motion, get the LG, but if you prefer a higher resolution, get the ASUS.
