12 Reasons For

Nice Design

A few LG 27UD68-W reviewers who bought the LG 27UD68-W mentioned that it was good looking. Roberto Jorge said on Amazon “Beautiful Design and Overall Looks - Nice Colors” in his review.

Easy to Use

One customer who reviewed the product concluded that it had a good experience.

Good Connectivity

One person wrote in their reviews that it was good in terms of HDMI connections.

LG PC Monitors Have Good Reviews

LG is one of the better rated PC monitor manufacturers according to average reviews from owners and experts, and LG also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many comparable spec flatpanel monitors that came out in the last 12 months.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display and we think the Acer XG270HU[plb_2846714_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer CB281HK[plb_3229284_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Very Many Display Colour Count

The average display colour count of new medium monitors is 240M. When compared to other latest similar spec PC monitors, the display colour count of the 27UD68-W of 1,073.7 million is one of the most.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The LG 27UD68-W is a two HDMI port PC display. Most of the other PC displays that have been around for around the same time as the 27UD68-W have between one and three HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

3840 X 2160 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the 27UD68-W is 3840 x 2160. That's over four times the resolution of a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) PC display, which is the most frequently found resolution. 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) is also found on this flatpanel monitor.

This PC screen's resolution (3840 x 2160) is in fact the best resolution amongst all recently released medium monitors.

The worst resolution amongst similar types of PC screen is 640 x 350.

Quite Large Color Gamut

Across all the recently released flatpanel monitors the color gamuts range from 68% to 110%, and the average color gamut is 82%. At 99 percent, the LG 27UD68-W has a quite large color gamut compared to most of the other PC monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 27UD68-W.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Display Brightness

The dimmest display brightness of latest PC monitors is 200 cd/m², the brightest is 800 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m². At 300 candellas per square meter, the 27UD68-W has a fairly bright display brightness compared to most of the other LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as the 27UD68-W.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The shallowest LCD screen that came out in the last 12 months is 7mm deep and the deepest is 610mm. The 27UD68-W is one of the shallower medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 27UD68-W (only 49.3 millimeters) amongst similar spec LCD screens of this age.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The 27UD68-W does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months.

Alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker that you might want to look at include the XG270HU[pl_2846714_price], or the Predator XB271HU[pl_3406684_price] both from Acer or the AOC AG271QX[plb_3537209_price].

Not 3D Compatible

The 27UD68-W is not 3D compatible. Most of the other latest medium monitors are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Acer Predator XB271HU[plb_3406684_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 27UD68-W does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last 12 months also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC monitor and we think the Philips 272B7QPTKEB[plb_3731183_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most medium monitors that came out in the last year do not have an integrated card reader. The LG 27UD68-W is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Pricey

We think this medium monitor looks expensive compared to other recently released similar spec PC displays. We checked 295 recently released similar spec PC displays and they range in price from £40 to £1,164.

Only Has Two Cables Included

The number of cables included found on the 27UD68-W is more than most medium monitors that were released in the last year. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this LCD screen. The cables included DisplayPort and HDMI are also found on this LG PC screen.

3 Other reasons to consider the LG 27UD68-W

Released Eleven Months Ago

It was eleven months ago when LG released the 27UD68-W.

If you are not bothered about having a wider width then you might want to look at the LG 34UM68-P[plb_3285146_price] (829.9mm and cheaper).
