I'm surprised more people aren't reviewing this monitor, there are only 1 or 2 reviews on YouTube and other websites.

Do you notice any tearing in gameplay or cinematic cut scenes?

Have you done any calibration to the monitor besides contrast & brightness? What are your thoughts on the Spyder III calibration tool?



Regards,

1. Yeah: honestly I didn't think I'd ever put my 245T (ditched my "award wining" Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP for the Samsung 245t >a friend had the Samsung 245t< in an instant, after I saw it and never looked back) aside but, the prices have come down so much (245t was $600+ when I purchased it) and I really wanted a 27" w/ a 1900x1080 resolution. For gaming 1900x1080 is a great resolution that most modern cards will render w/o much problem or strain. I; or you, could have gone w/ a 30" but at a much higher (frame rate robbing - resolution monitor and stressing your Video Card) I really don't see the point unless you want to "game only". In retrospect: I'm glad I did. Very happy w/ the new LG! As far as doing every day surfing / email / "forum posting" This thing is first rate typing or reading is super clear and easy to read. Gaming is even better !!!
2. At the price I got it ($343.70 out the door - Bestbuy) I'd buy a second one as a gift for someone if it were closer to a holiday!
3. "youtube" review: if I spoke better English (no, just kidding). Rather: if I had a better Video camera that would really show the positive Video re-production of the monitor; I would.
4. "Tearing" in game play or cut scenes (cut scenes would almost be about the same as watching a DVD or Blu-Ray which I did do the other night): - none what so ever...
5. I love my Spider 3 (great investment for something you only use a couple times a year) but, I really want to get used to the monitor first. Sometimes (with a not so great monitor; it can make it look great, conversely with an already good monitor the differences might be really subtle). I've used my Spider on all of mine and my friends monitors w/ mixed results (always positive) but, I think it's better to get used to the monitor and settings first before you make any changes.
Any more questions: Give a shout out / What Monitor are you planning to up-grade from? Glad I could contribute! -Davis

Just for a reference I found this youtube video on the 245t (it's still a great monitor > not IPS but; s-PVA technology "the best panel technology but, very expensive to produce" and all the connectors anyone could ever want) . Hope you can see why I was so "torn" before I decided to up-grade: http://youtu.be/_X1Sg5YVTx4

Wow! Big kudos to you for your contribution in this thread! It has certainly made my decision picking this monitor up an easy one!

I'll be ordering next Monday and hopefully mine is as defect free as yours! What would you recommend to test for dead pixels?

Here in Australia the prices are $385.00 which for a monitor of this calibre I feel is very well priced!

Also, I'm looking at purchasing a Spyder III for future calibrations!


Regards,

If this monitor is mainly for gaming, and you already own a fast GPU (capable of 120fps@120Hz), then be sure to see Motion Blur Comparison: 60Hz vs 120Hz vs LightBoost. Color quality can be far more important, but if you already have a high-end graphics card, you need to weigh motion quality versus color quality.

Just wanted to say I bought the LG 27EA63 also and happy with it, I think its a nice monitor and was very nice step up in IQ vs my older Samsung 27" TN. smile.gif
post #16 of 123
Yeah; I lived w/ mine (27EA53V-P) for about a week before I calibrated it with my Spyder3 Pro. I really-really liked it before now: "it's "perfect"! I highly recommend running a calibrator on your (if you have access) monitor. I'd say the difference was subtle but; that subtleness turned out to be truly night and day. This on one nice Monitor (and I got a great price)! Enjoy !!! thumb.gif

wforpilot Can you post the date (month) of your LG 27EA63 monitor from the sticker on the backside of the monitor. I like to know also what firmware verson your LG 27EA63 is so if you could post that also?

Thanks in advance,

In case you don't how to check for the firmware version.

Turn the monitor off.

Put your finger first over the menu sensor.
Then while you finger is on the menu sensor put your other finger over the power sensor and hold them both til the monitor comes on and then release both fingers.
There will be the normal dialog box at the top right coner that comes up for a few seconds but then another small dialog box (SM) will pop in a couple seconds ON THE TOP LEFT corner of the monitor with the firmware version. If it doesn't touch the menu sensor once after the monitor turns on per above steps.
You might have to do this a few times if you don't see it on the first try.

I watched both videos and not to be hard on you; (and, I don't know what your recording with) but, those colors are horrible. It looks "way" over exposed? Have you tried to calibrate it? In all honesty; unless I'm missing something in the Youtube videos: the LG preforms just as fast and w/ way (way) better (much more life like colors). -Davis
P.S. hope you all appreciate a: "spirited debate"! Blame it on Rentay ! ;-) lol..
