LG’s 240 Hz UltraGear OLED Gaming Monitors Arrive Next Month, Starting at $999

We first brought you news of the latest entry in LG’s UltraGear family of monitors three weeks ago. At the time, the company announced the 27-inch 27GR95QE, which features an OLED panel and a fast 240 Hz refresh rate. At the time, the company didn’t provide us with a shipping date but did say that the monitor would cost $999 in the United States.

Today, LG confirmed that the 27GR95QE will ship in early January 2023. The company also revealed that the flagship 45GR95QE, which we first heard about back in late August, will also arrive early next month, priced at $1,699.

The two monitors’ specs are remarkably similar, with the primary differences being screen size, resolution, and screen curvature (the 27GR95QE features a flat panel, while the 45GR95QE has an 800R curvature). The 27GR95QE’s 27-inch panel features a QHD resolution (2560 x 1440) and the 45-inch 45GR95QE bumps that to WQHD (3440 x 1440). In addition, both monitors boast the same 240 Hz maximum refresh rate, 0.03 GtG response time, HDR10 support, 1,500,000:1 contrast ratio and 98.5 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. The two monitors also are fully compatible with Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium Adaptive-Sync technologies.
