LG UltraGear Nano IPS G-Sync Monitor Pre-Orders Open in Canada
LG caught my attention when they announced a pair of displays with native 1 millisecond response time at E3 this year, but the two monitors have a lot more to get excited about for those who are looking for an upgrade. 98 percent DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, for example, and HDR10 support.
For me the big one is G-Sync compatibility, a real game changer technology that helps eliminate choppy motion by supporting variable refresh rates.
The 27″ monitor is available for pre-order now, stickered at $699 and available at Amazon, Best Buy, Canada Computers, Memory Express, Mike’s Computer and Newegg. The first 200 customers to pre-order the 27″ monitor will also receive a free copy (digital download) of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Gold Edition.

Here’s the specs for the pair of monitors. Personally I’d lean towards the 38″ for the higher resolution, VESA DisplayHDR 400 support, and Sphere Lighting 2.0 – a really underrated immersion booster.
Here’s the press release:
