The height represents the vertical dimension of the product.
5.width

607.1mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product.
The thickness (or depth) of the product.
7.weight

7.67kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

9.maximum operating temperature

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The maximum temperature at which the device can perform to the optimal level.

Display

Response time is how long it takes for a display to change the state of pixels, in order to show new content. The less time it takes to respond, the less likely it is to blur fast-changing images.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
3.resolution

3840 x 2160px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
5.has an IPS screen
LG UltraGear 27GN950-B
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
6.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
LG UltraGear 27GN950-B
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.
7.has an LED-backlit display
LG UltraGear 27GN950-B
Uses LED backlighting, resulting in better image quality, more vibrant colors and richer blacks.
8.has anti-glare coating
LG UltraGear 27GN950-B
Anti-glare helps to reduce the external reflections of light coming from outside the display.
The frequency at which the screen is refreshed. Higher frequency results in less flickering (less noise) and more natural movement representation in action-intense scenes.

Colors

1.brightness

400 nits

A nit is a measurement of the light that a display emits, equal to one candela per square meter. Brighter displays ensure a screen's contents are easy to read, even in sunny conditions.
2.supports color calibration
LG UltraGear 27GN950-B
A properly calibrated screen represents colors as they are and i.e. you can conduct a photo shoot while verifying your photos in real time. An internal sensor and/or colorimeter is usually included for trouble-free calibration.
Number of colors that a display can accurately reproduce.
Bit depth is the number of bits used to indicate the color of a single pixel. The more bits, the more color range a panel displays. An 8-bit panel uses 256 levels per channel and displays 16.7 million colors, while a 10-bit one reaches 1024 and displays 1.07 billion colors.
Contrast ratio is the visual distance between the lightest and the darkest colors that may be reproduced on the display. A high contrast ratio is desired, resulting in richer dark colors and more distinctive color gradation.
6.Adobe RGB coverage

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

This shows the percentage of Adobe RGB covered by the device.

Connectivity

More HDMI ports mean that you can simultaneously connect numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.
2.supports Thunderbolt
LG UltraGear 27GN950-B
Thunderbolt is a connection over cable that carries both data and display signals over a single cable, while simultaneously providing power.
Allows you to connect to a display using DisplayPort.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
5.has a DVI connector
LG UltraGear 27GN950-B
Devices that have a DVI connector (usually computers and notebooks) can be connected to the TV set.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
8.Has USB Type-C
LG UltraGear 27GN950-B
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
Newer versions of HDMI support higher bandwidth, which allows for higher resolutions and frame rates.

Power

How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.
The power consumption in standby mode, also called energy-saving mode, measures the amount of power the device consumes when shut down but still plugged in.
3.annual power consumption

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.
4.battery power

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
