Chances are good you've never used a 4K computer monitor before. It's sort of a luxury to have that sort of resolution in a screen that isn't a 65-inch TV. This LG deal, though, puts that luxury into an affordable price range for sure. You'll probably be amazed at the clarity and the detail in a 27-inch screen with a pixel resolution of 3840 x 2160. Plus it's an IPS panel with great color accuracy and over 99% coverage of the sRGB spectrum. It's great for photographers, graphic designers, and anyone who just appreciates some dang good color.

You'll also get AMD FreeSync, which is technology that works with your AMD graphics card to help reduce screen tearing. Whether you're playing video games, watching an action movie, or just need to move from one point to another over and over quickly, the FreeSync will make all that action seem smooth as butter.

Other features include on-screen controls with screen split, so you can make use of all that real estate. The display has a brightness of 350 nits and a black stabilizing feature for when you're gaming. Users give it 4.1 stars out of 5 based on 199 reviews (opens in new tab).
