    If an order is put in for a GL850 now, will it arrive in the next shipment, or a later one?

    Should have some landing today and they should fulfil all current pre-orders and then have a few left.

    Remember to @ me if you want responses quicker :)

    Nik said there were some left from the batch landing today, best to call customer service if you want a up to date answer.

    Nik said all current pre-orders will be fulfilled, so I imagine so.

    is there much of a difference ? becasue of 144hz, the lg is £130 more and has the worst contrast of any ips monitor plus not to sure how good it is for mixed work.

    is the dell that bad for gaming ?

    the best gaming ips contrast is the

    27"
    ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q.........1334:1 144hz ips
    ASUS TUF VG27AQ................1247:1 144hz ips
    Acer VG271UP......................1244:1 144hz ips
    ASUS ROG Swift PG279QZ.......1195:1 144hz ips
    ViewSonic VX2758-2KP-MHD....1071:1 144hz ips
    Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD..........1063:1 144hz ips
    Acer Predator XB271HU...........1055:1 144hz ips
    LG 27GL850-B........................735:1 144hz ips

    the dell U2719D is 1142:1 60hz ips

    i can not understand how many people rate the LG 27GL850 as
    1, poor contrast to all ips monitors
    2, HDR is usless on this monitor as it hardly brings anything as it does not go bright enough
    3, the 1ms does not work and you have to set it 4ms which is about the same as the dells

    so the only thing i can see going for it is the gaming side of it and thats it but the monitors i listed above are all gaming monitors and have a far better contrast. I am going to look inot each one and see what each one brings and ill report back

    so why is the LG such a big hit ? also would a LG 700:1 contrast be much better than my samsung TNT 2443 monitors ?

    thanks

    I'm also confused about the contrast of this monitor. I am so close to buying it but I'm not sure if the low contrast ratio will be a factor.

    I’ve been researching which monitor to get for a while now, and contrast was the only issue that made me pause, although I finally ordered the LG.

    I was falling prey to being stuck on looking at the contrast ratings, but something to consider is that display panels can have so much variation when it comes to IPS glow / backlight bleed. One monitor may have a higher contrast, but if it has worse IPS glow that eats into blacks on a dark scene, then a lower contrast monitor with less IPS glow is likely going to look better, although it’s subjective of course. Quality control therefore should to be taken into account, and at least anecdotally, LG appear to be less of a ‘panel lottery’ in terms of QC compared to the competition (with the exclusion of Dell, perhaps).

    i know what your saying but its nearly 40% less contrast than other gaming/non gaming ips monitors which i find strange for a new released monitor and i am sure you could tell the difference at a 40% less contrast ratio as thats alot.

    Update on the items below.

    • I will shortly solve the power cable adaptor length with an underdesk cable rack. TBH this will have the added benefit of tidying up the mass of DP 1.4, power and other cables I have so no biggie.
    • I am living with flimsy stands and if they really bother me then I found a nice Tripe monitor vesa stand for £50
    • The over saturated colours (especially red) are due to the wide color gamut I've been told. I messed around with the settings a bit but couldn't really make a lot of change. I have begun adjusting to the colours and the slight downside is offset by the postives you get in games.
    • IPS glow doesn't bother me and as mentioned I was expecting it.
    • I replaced the monitor with the excessive back light bleed and the new one is probably the best of the 3 panels I have. Once again overclockers customer support was super good in looking after me. Thanks ashley.
    I notice loads of posts about poor constrast stats appearing here. I have no clue what they are going on about as contrast is not an issue as far as I am concerned on this monitor. I had 2 x Aorus CV27Q which had high contrast VA panels and these look just as good.

    Those that are comparing these LG against the £200 more expensive Asus panel are not comparing like for like and I have heard horror stories of poor QC and customer service from Asus.

    I will spend a few words explaining how I use me setup. All 3 monitors are plugged into a 2070 Super. The machine al;so contains a watercooled i9-9900k, 32Gb Corsair RAM, 2 x 1TB Samsung NVME and a 850W PSU. All 3 screens connect via DP 1.4 cables.
    One of the screens also connects into a Surface Pro via HDMI which I toggle between DP and HDMI depending if I am working or playing.

    Thanks REITSY, appreciate you taking the time to post both your initial thoughts and the updated feedback. I have just gone to order it and it is preorder again, typical! It was showing as 10plus in stock earlier. Too much dilly-dally :)

    I bought the LG over all the other monitors because the LG has better response at different Hz (144/120/100/60) without causing as much overshoot such as the Asus VG27AQ - which was the one of the other monitors I was considering.
    The poor contrast was far better than my Asus VG248QE, so that was going to be an improvement either way and I am not disappointed.
    I was not too interested in HDR as I am only using it for gaming.
    Yes, the 1ms response time is not something I am ever going to use, but it still has a very fast response time for an IPS without using the Fastest option.

    If I had the option to choose again, I would buy the LG again.
