lg 38gl950g review

There are two steps to getting the 38GL950G set up on a desk. It is beaten by the 27GL850, which also maintains strong performance without needing to change its overdrive setting, but that’s a different Nano IPS panel. All things considered, it’s the best mode to use for displaying sRGB content. 85% of transitions had no problems, it’s only with a few close together transitions that overshoot exceeds 20% or so.

I can't decide what's more mesmerizing, the monitor's curved 38-inch, 4K (3840 x 1600 resolution) display or the circular LED lighting on the rear of the chassis. Meaning that you might have to be sitting right in front of it for the best viewing angle. This curved gaming monitor ticks all the right boxes and looks fantastic doing it. We love this size and the bump up from 3440 x 1440 to 3840 x 1600 is handy. If you're looking for better value, a number of 3840 x 1600 monitors with 160Hz refresh rates are set to hit the market soon, including LG’s own 38GN950. Overshoot is incredibly high here, resulting in obvious light trails to any moving objects on the screen. I will say that HDR input support is actually good, so the monitor doesn’t look like trash when you enable the HDR mode in Windows, but the actual picture quality isn’t in the same league as true HDR displays. The monitor is fairly flexible. It's great but know that you're buying an IPS panel at 2K, Reviewed in the United States on December 18, 2019. There’s many more RGB lights than we usually get, and they’re very bright. Hopefully if you do end up buying this monitor you have better luck than I did. With these sorts of speeds, 100% of transitions fall within the reasonably tight 5.71ms response window for 175Hz gaming, which is perfect. And even then, the 38GL950G is only 8% behind the 34GK950F in terms of contrast and 15% behind the Pixio PX7 Prime, so it’s not as bad as it might seem. While this is a poor result for Nano IPS panels, we think it’s important to note that even though contrast is similar to TNs, the 38GL950G and 27GL850 have a significant advantage over TNs in viewing angles and color performance. At its thickest point, it’s 2.3 inches. Also, LG's marketing materials claim that it can pivot, but we've had no such luck getting it to rotate more than a few degrees. That provides real-world benefits which we’ll talk about in a bit, but as we all know, it also pushes up the price. I was afraid that it would slide down with any sort of pressure, but the screen stayed put when I hung my Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones on the top corner. You’ll spot a few more red highlights, like with the top vented area. Yes, we’ve seen 1ms and 0.5ms minimums, but not on average. Often the issue with RGB lighting on the back of monitors is they’re dim and can really only be seen from the rear, which typically faces a wall. We repeat, the variable refresh experience on the LG 38GL950G is available with both Nvidia and AMD GPUs. Another area where the LG 38GL950G performs well is color reproduction. We won't dive into this much because the 38GL950G lacks local dimming, so it realistically cannot display single-frame contrast ratios above 1000:1. G-Sync, for as long as you have a compatible Nvidia graphics card, is basically like cheating and that’s how we all love it. The RGB lights can be customized using a clickable scroll wheel on the bottom edge of the monitor. However, like the 27GL850, there’s no backlight strobing mode available for even more clarity improvements, we’d have liked to see that.
