LG gaming monitor contest
LG gaming monitors are the kind of upgrade gamers crave. Face it, doing anything interesting or important without a decent monitor is more challenging than it needs to be. If your monitor is slow, then you can’t help but be distracted by the latency. If your monitor presents colours that are not accurate, then you can miss important details or, at the very least, may notice them too late to benefit your performance. However, with a monitor like the LG UltraGear 27″ FHD 240Hz 1ms GTG IPS LED G-Sync FreeSync Gaming Monitor we are giving away in this contest, you will be ready to take on the most visually demanding games available.

LG displays have a reputation for excellence

You are likely familiar with the amazing televisions produced by LG. Those have been among the very best screens you can buy: a reputation that continues year after year. Their monitors are similarly impressive. However, the UltraGear line of gaming monitors stand out as a gamers ultimate choice for a variety of reasons. Some of these reasons are covered in Brad Moon’s detailed review of this monitor.

To start with, the 240Hz refresh rate is amazing. Consider that many monitors are refreshing the screen at half or a quarter that rate. You might think that you never noticed that to be problematic in the past. However, there are numerous studies supporting the view that a faster refresh rate is easier on our eyes, and enables quicker reactions to changes on the screen. That isn’t likely to affect us when watching a movie, likely shot at much less than 60 frames per second. Gaming, though, is much faster as your reaction time may determine the difference between winning and losing. As you get better at gaming, you’ll want the competitive advantage that a really fast refresh rate provides.

LG UltraGear monitors ensure you’re getting the best gaming experience

Optimum performance of a monitor during gaming depends on many technologies working together. The software in the game needs to be accurately interpreted by the graphics card in your computer and the signal sent from the graphics card needs to be reliably synchronized with the refresh rate of the monitor. When this is done poorly you get visual aberrations on the screen. For example, you may have heard of screen tearing; sections of the screen seem to break away from where they should be (like if a character’s head may be several inches from their body). Obviously distracting for you and possibly fatal for the character (haha). LG Monitors have a variety of synchronization technologies built-in. NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD Radeon FreeSync keep the visual display stable. In additions, Dynamic Action Sync reduces the lag between you hitting a key or controller button, and your character responding accordingly to avoid or initiate an attack.

Gaming monitors are designed for optimum gameplay. You may, however, be thinking: we need a new TV and a new monitor but our budget this year forces us to choose one or the other. Sometimes life is about compromise. If getting the most from your gaming is the most important thing for you this year: get an LG UltraGear monitor! If you know you will need a new TV this year and will have to wait until next year for a gaming monitor, get the next best thing … an LG gaming TV! As I said, LG TVs are legendary. Their gaming TVs have incorporate many technologies to enhance gaming, despite not having all of the great features of an LG UltraGear monitor.

Then there is the possibility that you enter this contest and I draw your name in a few weeks! There is the dream: win the LG UltraGear Monitor and then buy an LG gaming TV for the best of both worlds!

  3. I most.likely to purchase the gaming monitor, because with streaming nowadays, I don’t need a TV.

  4. When it comes to gaming, I would definitely go with an LG monitor. The added adaptive G-sync features, and very high refresh rates really amplify the gaming experience.

  5. We do a lot of gaming on both our PC and our TV. We already have a few monitors for gaming that are good enough for now so an LG gaming TV would be our preference for our next purchase,

  6. I would prefer the LG gaming TV, I have a decent monitor now but as I game more and more on TV I’m starting to see where my current TV falls short.

  7. While the gaming monitor is really great with its 240hz refresh rate and anti-glare screen, I I would be more likely to buy a LG gaming TV so we can use it for family gaming in the living room.

  8. I would be more likely to buy a LG gaming TV because we’ve been playing tons of games on our tv this past year. It’s definitely outweighed our pc for game use lately. we play solo and as a family and an LG gaming TV would be awesome!

  9. I would buy a LG gaming monitor as I am a gamer and it would be a great upgrade from my current gear

  10. Although the gaming tv sounds great I’m afraid I don’t watch tv anymore I am an avid gamer but have never experienced the power of a gaming screen , I always thought it was just talk but maybe those screens do offer an advantage to gaming

  11. LG gaming monitor as my old 1990’s monitor just died. I can only imagine the difference in picture!

  12. I would love to have LG UltraGear 27″ FHD 240Hz 1ms GTG IPS LED G-Sync FreeSync Gaming Monitor in my home as main gaming/entertainment monitor.

  13. Definitely a gaming monitor as my monitor displays OSD Lockout in the center of the screen and will not turn off!

  14. I am more likely to purchase an LG gaming TV in 2022 because I need a new TV, and would like to game on it as well!

  15. For economic and space saving reasons would probably go for an LG gaming TV most likely a 64 inch size. Live in an apartment so need to have it fit the space available. Family have bad vision and could use a larger set like that for both Gaming & TV.

  16. With four kids and all the family and frinds I feel the LG gaming TV is a better option for our household.
