LG recently announced a trio of new Nano IPS technology monitors, including one with Nvidia G-Sync, which is destined for the PC gaming market. However, before those become available it has launched a new 27-inch gaming monitor based on more traditional display technology which offers a headline refresh rate of 240Hz, with AMD FreeSync compatibility.

The new LG 27GK750F-B is a 27-inch FHD monitor that uses an 8-bit TN display panel with 3H anti-glare coating. Capable of 16.7 million (8-bit) colour reproduction the panel has a 400cd/m2 typical brightness and 170°/160° viewing angles. The GtG response time is 2ms – but with LG’s Motion Blur Reduction (MBR) backlight strobing option activated this is reduced to 1ms. Unfortunately this choice doesn’t work with AMD FreeSync and lowers luminance – though some might prefer it depending on their hardware / particular game choice.

As one of LG’s gaming monitors, there are a number of 'gamer features' included such as Black Stabiliser colour equalisation settings, settings designed for various game modes such as FPS and RTS, and custom on-screen crosshair overlays.

LG offers a selection of modern connectivity options (1x DisplayPort 1.2a and 2x HDMI 2.0 inputs), a dual-port USB 3.0 hub with quick charging, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It has a decent adjustable stand offering -5º to 15º tilt, -20º to +20º swivel, 0º to 90º pivot, and 110mm height adjustments. However, you can’t swap out the supplied stand for a VESA mount, it isn’t compatible. Download the full spec sheet here (PDF).

The RRP of the LG 27GK750F-B is $549.99 but you will have to wait until early next year for widespread retail availability.

I briefly had my hopes up for this monitor and then I read the two most dreaded characters with regard to monitors, TN. Further curbed my enthusiasm by reading FHD. And then, just to rub in the salt, it says “8-bit panel”.

TBH, 8-bit colour for a TN panel is the new definition of “pearls before swine”. Wouldn't be surprised if it's actually some 6-bit + FRC tech.

There are some actual 8 bit TN panels out there AFAIK.

Like putting spoilers on a 1 litre corsa.
Its probably the same AU Optronics 27" panel used in the Asus ROG Swift PG278Q:

Edit!!

It does seem the panel is made by AU Optronics but with a 240HZ module:

Full HD was a joke when they forced it on the PCs, in 2018 its just a WTF…
