Smooth 240Hz LG UltraGear OLED gaming monitors are here

LG UltraGear OLED 240Hz 45 inch curved gaming monitor

New LG UltraGear OLED 45-inch and 27-inch gaming monitors have just launched, intended to make games look top-notch. Just to make things even better, they’re among the first OLED displays to support super smooth 240Hz refresh rates.

Such new technology doesn’t come cheap, however. The 45-inch (45GR95QE) model comes with a $2,999 price tag locally, while the 27-inch (27GR95QE) version comes in at $1,799. To put these figures into perspective, you could grab an actual OLED TV with the same amount of cash. Of course, the 240Hz OLED technology is extremely new, hence the premium pricing. Another factor to consider is that neither display is 4K: the 27-inch is QHD 2560 x 1440, and the 45-inch is WQHD 3440 x 1440. Again, you’re paying for the OLED innovation here, not maximum resolution.

Both new UltraGear OLED monitors support variable refresh rates (VRR), a quick 0.03ms response time, and cover 98.5% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut for vibrant visuals. The 45-inch model comes in an 800R curved format – the company’s first curved OLED gaming monitor – with the smaller monitor a standard flat display.

HDR10 is supported across both displays, backed by 1,000 nits of brightness and 10-bit colour depth to provide plenty of contrast for detailed game environments. If you opt for the 45-inch UltraGear OLED monitor, you can use its various window settings to have either picture-by-picture or picture-in-picture to multitask or have something else on while you game.

Retailers currently have both monitors available to order now. Although pricey, the displays look spectacular on paper, and early reviews are positive. Like TVs, it will only be a matter of time before OLED tech becomes more common and affordable in monitors. Here are some of the places you can order the new OLED displays from:

Earlier in the year, LG announced a ridiculously smooth 360Hz gaming monitor, aimed at esports competitors. Meanwhile, competitors like Samsung also have 240Hz OLED gaming monitors in the works, with the wide 49-inch Odyssey OLED G9 announced at CES 2023. Expect to see more OLED display competition in the months to come.
