    Hi, I am after a new 27" 4K monitor below £500 primarily for use with an Xbox One X. Having been used to OLEDs for some time now, its important to me that the monitor has decent black levels. Would my best bet be the LG 27UK670 27" IPS 4K UHD?

    You're not going to get OLED like image quality from liquid crap.

    IPS which has the best viewing angles/colour stability has only normal LCD contrast along with other issues if you like dimmer room lightning.
    VA has the way best contrast/black of LCDs crushing IPS in darker room.
    But that comes at expense of "black crush" causing gamma shift and in comparison to IPS slow darker transition response times ("black smear") or strong inverted ghosting from RTC overshoot.

    For all the marketing BS advance of flat monitors has been misarably poor for 15 years.
