Share this content

LG have announced a new 27″ monitor in China which will hopefully be released Worldwide in 2024. The  LG 27GR95UM has a 4K resolution, 160Hz maximum refresh rate and an impressive 1560-zone Mini LED backlight for high end HDR experience.

LG 27GR95UM Specs

The screen is 27″ in size and built around an LG.Display Nano IPS technology panel – the LM270WR8-SSE1 in fact that we brought you news about back in March 2023 in our last LG.Display panel roadmap article. It has a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution, 1ms G2G response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 450 cd/m2 brightness (SDR), 178/178 viewing angles, a 10-bit colour depth and a wide colour gamut backlight covering 99.5% of the DCI-P3 colour space.

It has a native 144Hz refresh rate, which can be boosted to 160Hz via an overclocking feature. The 4K @ 160Hz is then supported by adaptive-sync for VRR from compatible NVIDIA and AMD systems, with the screen also being certified under the AMD ‘FreeSync Premium Pro’ and NVIDIA ‘G-sync Compatible’ schemes.

For connectivity there are 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (with DSC) and 2 HDMI 2.1 connections (HDMI capabilities not listed). There’s also a audio output/mic connection and the screen includes some reasonable 2x 7W integrated speakers too. The stand offers tilt, height and rotate adjustments.

1560-zone Mini LED Backlight and HDR 1000 Certification

The screen has an impressive 1560-zone Mini LED backlight which should offer a high level of local dimming control over content to produce an excellent HDR image, helping reduce blooming and halos compared with screens with fewer zones. With this backlight the screen conforms to the VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification tier, including a peak brightness spec of 1250 nits (10% APL window), and the pre-requisite wide colour gamut and 10-bit colour depth support.

A-TW Polarizer Features

LG.Display have also included an A-TW (Advanced True Wide) polarizer on this panel, which is designed to help reduce glow when viewing dark/black content from an angle. This was something featured on some professional IPS panels many years ago, which for some reason fell out of favour with LG.Display. We’ve yet to see a modern A-TW panel in practice, so we hope that it is a welcome addition to modern IPS screens.
