The LG 27GL83A, one of the best gaming monitors on the market, has seen a rare discount in the UK today after months of disrupted stock to due to the ongoing human malware situation. Right now you can pick it up for £384 on Amazon, down from £440.

The 27GL83A is actually a variant of our #1 pick for the best gaming monitor, the LG 27GL850, with one major difference: the 27GL83A doesn’t have an integrated USB hub. Otherwise, the two monitors are nigh-identical, using the same Nano IPS 1ms panel that caused us to recognise the 27GL850 as the best gaming monitor on the market. The panel combines the traditional strengths of IPS – wide viewing angles and accurate colour reproduction – with the fast motion handling that you’d normally associate with a high-spec TN panel.

The 27GL83A has a GtG pixel response time of 1ms, which is far below the 4ms to 8ms that you’d normally expect from an IPS monitor. That means you get a display that looks excellent for videos and cinematic games, but also one that performs extremely well in fast-paced games like Call of Duty Warzone, CSGO or Valorant.
