Need for Speed: The LG UltraGear (27GN750) 240 Hz IPS Monitor with G-Sync
LG has expanded its family of UltraGear displays aimed at hardcore and esports gamers. The newest model, the UltraGear 27GN750, supports a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate as well as NVIDIA’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology. The LG UltraGear 27GN750 is the industry’s first IPS monitor featuring such a high refresh rate along with the G-Sync technology.
Based on the so-called ‘fast IPS’ 27-inch panel, the LG UltraGear 27GN750 has a 1920×1080 resolution, 400 nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles, a 1 ms GtG response time, and a variable refresh rate of up to 240 Hz supported by NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology. Unfortunatelly, LG does not disclose the range of the VRR supported by the LCD.
The 27-inch gaming monitor can display 16.78 million of colors and can reproduce 99% of the sRGB color space. Furthermore, it also carries VESA’s DisplayHDR 400 badge and therefore supports HDR10 transport.
Because LG’s UltraGear monitors are designed predominantly for gamers, they support numerous features aimed at this audience, including LG’s Dynamic Action Sync mode, Black Stabilizer, and Crosshair.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the LG UltraGear 27GN750 has one DisplayPort, two HDMI inputs, as well as a dual-port USB hub.

Being one of the leading makers of high-end displays and offering hundreds of models, LG introduced its separate UltraGear brand targeted at demanding gamers only in mid-2019, somehow later than its competitors. The addition of the rather unique (as of today) UltraGear 27GN750 featuring a 240 Hz refresh rate enables the company to address a new market segment of gamers that require maximum performance yet demand quality of an IPS panel. In fact, this is the world’s second IPS LCD featuring a 240 Hz refresh rate and its only competitor is Dell’s Alienware 27 model AW2720HF.
