LG’s new 240Hz OLED gaming monitor is the cheapest yet

From PC World: The floodgates seem to be opening for OLED monitors, with Dell, Asus, and of course, LG all releasing multiple models. Unfortunately they’re all rather on the pricey side — LG in particular can chop a grand off its price tags and still be unaffordable for most consumers. The latest LG gaming monitor is a little more attainable: The Ultragear 27GR95QE-B has a retail price of just $999.99.

Granted, that still puts it on the higher end of monitors out there. But this 27-inch gaming display justifies the high price, particularly with a blistering 240Hz refresh rate, something that’s hard to find on other OLED monitors at the moment. It also claims a lightning-fast .03-millisecond response time and 2560×1440 resolution, making it an ideal contender for eSports players who demand speed and frames in equal measure. HDR10 support is a nice bonus.

Other hardware goodies include a pair of HDMI ports, one DisplayPort input, support for G-Sync and FreeSync/ActiveSync, a pair of USB-A 3.0 ports for peripherals, a headphone/microphone port, and a splash of RGB lighting. The display is compatible with a standard 100mm VESA mount, if you’d like to mount it to your own arms or include it in a multi-monitor setup.

The Ultragear 27GR95QE-B doesn’t seem to be in stock at any retailer, and based on the incomplete spec list, it might be a few weeks before it actually becomes available. Sorry if you were looking to stuff an extremely large, rectangular stocking.
