I was using LG 24MP77HM Monitor since January 2015. It is a 24″ IPS Panel monitor with 1080p @ 60 Hz which is excellent for watching movies, browsing internet and any other computing use you can think of.
I prefer AMD GPU for their cost effectiveness. Recently I upgraded my PC and purchased a MSI Armor RX 470 which supports Freesync. This opened up an avenue to upgrade my old monitor for a Freesync based monitor.
A day’s research about what is available in India and which model is the best bang of buck, I decided to purchase LG 27MP68HM monitor from Paytm via seller Cart2India for Rs 19,500 with Paytm discount coupon.
- This monitor has a 27″ IPS panel running at 1080p @ 75 Hz with support for Freesync over HDMI.
- It has two HDMI 2.0a ports. HDMI cable is not bundled in the box. I am using iVoltaa HDMI 2.0a cable which supports all features this monitor supports.
- Color reproduction is good out of the box but not perfect. Spend some time in setting the color, gamma, brightness level etc to get the quality you want.
LG also added Black stabilizer which changes the contrast and black level frame by frame which is noticeable when playing movies and videos. For regular computing tasks such as browsing etc, you won’t notice it. Its hard to capture black level in a photograph of monitor.
The optical area of this monitor is huge if you are like me who keep the screen at 2 feet distance from eyes This helps me a lot during my professional work. I still find 24″ to be a compact and better size and anything over 27″ reaches the TV territory.
Monitors are a one time buy so I always recommend people to pay a little extra to buy a good monitor. With this monitor LG has created a very nice IPS panel with deep blacks. I still find a 27″ OLED Monitor with 1080p @ 60 Hz to be my dream monitor but I don’t think I can buy them until the cost of OLED panels reduces significantly.
If you are in market for a long lasting monitor which also serves your gaming needs and you use Freesync based AMD GPU then this is the best panel you can buy in India at this point in time.
