LG 32GK850G

Matte 2560X1440 144hz VA panel with Nvidia G-Sync and back-light strobing.

It's pretty accurate, but needs to have the Gamma set to 3, has good color space coverage (up to 98% out of the box vs 105% for the best 1440p AHVA panel the Viewsonic XG2703-GS), negligible input lag on par with 144-240hz competitors (3-6ms measured by the SMT Tool vs CRT) and has fast pixel response times similar to the 144hz 1440p AHVA panels marketed as IPS. While their oscilloscope pixel response time measurements indicate that some of the LG VA panels pixel response times are faster versus the AHVA XG2703-GS, it is obvious that then blue-green transitions suffer from some obvious ghosting in Playwares own slow-motion+high frame rate videos:

Matte 2560x1440 144hz VA panel with a fully adjustable stand, Displayport, 2x HDMI and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The unit Belgium Hardware tested suffers from black crush caused by slightly too (2.35-2.4) gamma in the 10-40% white range.  Both the units tested by Belgium Hardware and TECHSPOT have mediocre preset RGB Level accuracy and suffer from an obvious preset blue tint, but the unit TECHSPOT tested has significantly more accurate preset gamma which does not cause black crush.

Very accurate and fully adjustable matte 2560x1440 144hz wide gamut LG IPS with G-Sync compatible AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz over Displayport and 48-100hz over HDMI) Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0. RGB Lighting, 2x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out. To prevent the wide gamut (DCI-P3/HDR) panel from over-saturating the color of SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) content, the 27GL850 needs to be set to the sRGB mode (which is fairly accurate and has adjustable brightness, but has a preset pink tint and locked color controls.  The 27GL850 has quite accurate and nearly full DCI-P3/HDR color space coverage, but has a slight, though easily reduce-able preset blue tint.  The 27GL850 has negligible or very low input lag and very fast pixel response times with minimal overshoot, but the overdrive needs to be set from Normal to Fast at 144hz to provide the fastest pixel response times, and to Normal at 60hz to prevent obvious overshoot ghosting.

LG 27GL83A-B

Review by Rtings

Fully adjust-able matte 2560x1440, 144hz IPS panel with AMD Free-Sync, Displayport, 2x HDMI, and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The 27GL83A-B does not over-saturate the color of SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) content since it has a standard, or non-wide gamut panel which tries to cover the HDTV/REC 709 and sRGB (SDR) color spaces.  The preset Gamer 1 Picture mode is quite accurate, but not as accurate as some competitors, especially since the 27GL83A-B can not fully cover the sRGB color space while the more accurate, and more expensive 27GL850 can, even when set to the sRGB mode.  The 27GL83A-B has negligible input lag and extremely fast pixel response times which are faster than many competitors.
