It has 27 inches UHD flat display with a 4K resolution, the display supports HDR 10 capabilities that give you an immersive viewing experience.

The picture quality is very good but it doesn’t have a good contrast ratio and HDR peak brightness, also there are no USB Type C ports and the stand is not fully adjustable. So these are the main cons of the LG 27UK650-W.

Image Quality

The LG 27UK650-W comes with a 27 inches 4K Display with HDR 10, 99% sRGB, and overall good image quality but has some weak level of contrast ratio and HDR peak brightness that reduces the HDR performance on this monitor.
