Yesterday my new monitor arrived (LG 27UD58P-B 27" IPS 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor) I figured I would leave a quick first impression review.
Out of the box everything worked fine, no problems and no dead pixels.
The 5ms refresh rate is good and I noticed no tearing when watching videos. (have not yet tested gaming with freesync)
However, the monitor is not quite as bright as I would like and there is a bit of backlight bleed and the brightness is not uniform across the entire screen. It's not terrible,… See More
The color reproduction is good, but because it is not a bright as my second monitor, pure white looks a bit more muted than I would like.
I'd also say that 27 inches might be a little too small for 4k. Text and such is pretty small at 100% so I have scaling at 125% I think whenever I decide to upgrade I will go for 30 or 32 inches.
For the $269 price and being a 4k monitor I would say it is well worth it, especially if you are on a budget. But if you can afford something a bit higher end it would be worth it to spend the money and go larger and brighter.
