We finally know the price of LG’s 240Hz OLED gaming monitors

LG has revealed the price and preorder details for its latest UltraGear OLED gaming monitor models, which were announced earlier this year.

The 27-inch LG UltraGear OLED 27GR95QE model and the 45-inch UltraGear Curved OLED 45GR95QE model are available for preorder at exclusively as of Monday, selling for $1,000 and $1,700 respectively.

The gaming monitors come with the offer of expedited two-day shipping, which will begin in January, and a free gaming pad, valued at $200.

Both LG UltraGear models are being advertised as having the world’s first 240Hz OLED panels for their respective sizes. They also support a response time of fewer than 0.03 milliseconds gray-to-gray (GTG), in addition to specifications that enable vibrant colors and infinite contrast.

The LG UltraGear OLED gaming monitor 27GR95QE model features a 27-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution display with a 240Hz refresh rate, a color gamut covering 98.53 percent of the DCI-P3, a contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1, and support for HDR10 and an anti-glare and low reflection (AGLR) panel.

Gaming support for the LG UltraGear OLED 27GR95QE model includes variable refresh rate (VRR), Nvidia G-Sync, FreeSync Premium, and VESA Adaptive Sync. Its input includes two HDMI 2.1 ports, one DisplayPort 1.4 port, one USB 3.0 upstream port, two USB 3.0 downstream, and a 4-pole headphone jack that supports the spatial sound of DTS Headphone: X4. Additionally, the monitor comes with a remote control that allows for display management and programmable hotkeys.

The LG UltraGear OLED Gaming Monitor will be showcased at IFA 2022 in September.

The LG UltraGear Curved OLED gaming monitor 45GR95QE model features a 45-inch WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution display with a 240Hz refresh rate, a 21:9 aspect ratio, and an 800R curvature, in addition to the same color gamut, contrast ratio, HDR10, and AGLR specs as the 27-inch model.

The LG UltraGear Curved OLED 45GR95QE model also features the same input and remote control. Both models also feature stand support, with tilt, height, and swivel movements; however, only the 27-inch model can pivot 90 degrees counterclockwise.

LG isn’t the only company launching a 240Hz OLED gaming monitor. Dough (formerly Eve) has announced its own version of this display that uses the same panel, and Asus has teased its own model as well.

Why I couldn’t live without an ultrawide gaming monitor
Spider-Man running on the LG UltraGear OLED 45.

The debate between a dual-monitor setup and ultrawide is one for the ages (or, at least, the last decade), but I firmly fall into the ultrawide camp. That's why it surprised me to see my colleague Jon Martindale sing the praises of a dual-monitor setup over an ultrawide. I have to push back.

Martindale makes some valid points, from the cost of ultrawide monitors to the pixel density of such a large display. But, for the way I use my monitor, I couldn't imagine using anything else. Here's why.

We’re finally getting a 4K OLED gaming monitor, and it’s coming soon
The Dough Spectrum Black 32-inch monitor over a grey background.

Dough has just unveiled an interesting monitor. The Spectrum Black is a 32-inch 4K OLED screen that also serves up 240Hz refresh rates. Those specs might make it one of the best gaming monitors in 2024, and it's not that far off, as it's slated for an April 2024 release. And, if the stars align, it looks like Dough's display might be the first of its kind to come out.

The monitor has a simple design, but it's the specs that make it stand out. On paper, it sounds like a solid gaming monitor, with 0.03ms gray-to-gray response times and the aforementioned high refresh rates. Locked in a 32-inch screen, it should provide sharp imagery and solid contrasts, as it's VESA DisplayHDR True Black 400-certified.

I professionally review gaming monitors. Here are the worst buying mistakes I see
Cyberpunk 2077 running on the LG UltraGear OLED 45.

Tracking down the best gaming monitors is no simple task. As you can see from how we test gaming monitors, it involves a lot more than throwing a display on a desk and playing a couple of games. And even after years of reviewing them, I still see some common mistakes buyers make when shopping for a new gaming monitor.

I've tested dozens of gaming monitors, and although a spec sheet might sway you in one direction, I can tell you with certainty that all gaming monitors aren't built equally. Here are the biggest pitfalls to avoid.
Thinking in resolution
