Since no one is starting a thread for this I might as well then.

Please post links to decent reviews of monitors launched in 2019+ often with new 1440p 144Hz+ panels, from Innolux, LG, ...

27" Innolux panel so far is reported to be slower than the older AUO M270DAN2.x response time wise, as far as I saw from limited user reports it's again blurry on Acers thanks to Acer's copy+paste of old firmware issue and BLB was a lottery but there do seem to exist pixel defect + BLB free units of Innolux in Acers.

I make no promises to maintain this thread and OP up to date. If you make a mess in the posts below you will get a mess.

Try and post mostly links to decent reviews and announcements so that those looking for newer monitors can browse and easily see.
Monitors should be available at least on US or EU market, products available and sold only in Asia are not relevant to most people on OCN.
Some monitors are already in shops while other are only announced. You have to check by yourself at your time in your region and shops.

By decent I mean that it's more than a marketing spiel copy/paste and actual work and measurements have been done by the reviewer to include brightness range, contrast, response time, viewing angles, BLB+glow shots, anything useful.
Language: any.
If you know some other nice review sites for monitors, or video channels, PM me a link and I will try add them to the list above. It's an example list of sites I know about, post links to any review site, it's a helper list not a these sites only list.

Hahaha, maybe at 350 EUR would I consider it being a worthy competitor on monitor market. It better come with FALD at 700 EUR. Or it will suffer the same fast price dropping experience as 32" AUO VA LGs.

Definitely would not preorder, wait for detailed measurements and lottery status. 4k 27" 144Hz IPS is 860-950EUR... that's not so far from 700.

The 4k panel is fine isn't it, no monitor is free from the butchery of monitor makers that love to mess something up on almost every one of them. Or some prefer to leave some of the potential butchery to Nvidia and throw money at them.
There is unlikely to be only XV273K on market. More options will show up if not already, I don't follow the 4k monitors, there are so many and only very expensive GPUs have any chance of pushing them too.

At least give it crosstalk free adjustable strobing that works in VRR mode. Then it would be a usable monitor for more serious gaming.

I personally never really understood the hype behind this monitor. LG is extremely late to market with their 1440p 144hz IPS panel, like 4-5 years late. And I'm not sure why people expect LG to have much better QC on these panels than what we have currently. LG is not immune to QC issues with their IPS panels. I've owned a few LG panels over the last couple years, including 3 different 4K panels (the latest being the 27UL650), and they weren't significantly better than AUO in terms of QC. In fact, they all exhibited much more IPS glow and much worse black levels than the XB271HU I owned, as well as the X27 I currently own (obviously FALD masks most of these two issues).

The 27UL650 was so rampant with QC issues at release that it was taken down off Amazon for several weeks. The one I received was pretty awful, almost double the native black level of my XB271HU with the worst IPS glow I've ever seen, and a contrast ratio of 800:1 which is pathetic for current IPS panels. I really am not expecting the 27GL850G to be anything remarkable. I expect middling native color accuracy in line with their 4K 60hz offerings, so like a DeltaE of < 4.0 being the standard. Ballpark 6500K color temp. "Nano IPS" wide color gamut that is basically useless without HDR, so it better have some way to limit the gamut to sRGB.

Not to kill everyone's hype, I just don't understand why everyone is freaking out for this panel. Don't be surprised if the 1440p 144hz offerings from Asus and Acer are still more than competitive with this new LG panel.

Edit: Also the price is too high. Its been 4-5 years since we broke into high refresh 1440p. I was expecting somewhere around $500-600 USD.
