Topic: LG 32GK850G QHD G-Sync Gaming Monitor Review - Life's Good

LG's 32GK850G QHD G-Sync Gaming Monitor puts the well-known panel and display maker back on the map when it comes to premium and quality gaming monitors. The VA panel offers exceptional contrast and black levels with a crisp image and near reference level colour calibration right out of the box. Also, it features a spherical RGB light-wheel on the back.


When it comes to gaming monitors a lot of attention is rightfully being placed on the QHD range of panels, which produce a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels. So then, why not 4K? Like with most modern-day TVs. Well, for a screen size that sits somewhere in the realm of 27 – 32 inches, QHD is the sweet spot. One look at the monitors currently being sold, especially those designed for gaming, you’ll notice that 1080p no longer makes up the bulk of what’s available. Also, it goes without saying that modern GPUs or those that sit in the realm of the NVIDIA GTX 1070 range perform best at this resolution. Where the difference over a 1080p image is instantly noticeable.

The only problem that comes with an abundance of choice, is the age-old question of what screen to pick. LG’s new 32GK850G QHD G-Sync Gaming Monitor is certainly one to consider, a premium gaming monitor that offers exceptional performance for those with NVIDIA cards - where it can quite easily push an overclocked refresh rate of 165Hz. Not that you’d notice all that much of a difference over 144Hz.

I don't know if a $1,500 monitor is essential...it really seems like the definition of discretionary spend.
