Among the key features of the LG UltraGear 45GR95QE gaming monitor, the size of its screen stands out. Leveraging its position as one of the leading OLED panel manufacturers, LG brings that expertise to this monitor, which boasts a 45-inch diagonal display with a QHD resolution of 3,440 x 1,400 pixels. It adopts a widescreen format with a 21:9 aspect ratio, eliminating the need for a second support monitor.
The display also features an 800R curved design, making the gaming experience even more immersive. Players are surrounded by the screen rather than facing a flat surface. This design, combined with the quality of LG’s OLED panels, delivers deep blacks and high contrast levels, creating a natural and realistic feel. Another interesting addition is the presence of Anti-Glare and Low Reflectivity technology, which enables seamless gameplay even in bright daytime environments.
Gaming monitors are gradually increasing their refresh rates, but this LG UltraGear monitor has a notable advantage. It offers a 240 Hz refresh rate, resulting in a faster frame transition. This is most noticeable and appreciated in fast-paced games like “Forza Horizon,” “Need for Speed,” and other demanding AAA titles with high-speed on-screen action.
Another strength of this new 45-inch LG UltraGear model lies in its response time, which is just 0.03 milliseconds (keep in mind that in 2020, UltraGear monitor response times were at 1 ms). This measurement represents the time it takes for a pixel to change color, practically eliminating the “ghosting” phenomenon where objects left trailing images, a common annoyance in graphically demanding games with high-action scenes. With this monitor, it is no longer a concern.
In terms of connectivity, gamers won’t need to worry too much, as this monitor incorporates two HDMI 2.1 ports and one DisplayPort 1.4 port, along with three USB inputs (one Type-B and two Type-A), as well as an optical input and a power cable input. There’s also a headphone jack at the bottom of the monitor for audio.
The design of the LG UltraGear 45GR95QE follows the aesthetics of gaming, with LED backlighting on the sides of the rear that allows you to set the room’s atmosphere like a streamer’s setup. The menu interface also features a distinct design, an additional detail that many users have applauded.
The LG UltraGear 45GR95QE gaming monitor aims to stand out with its 45-inch screen, high-quality OLED panel, incredibly fast response time of just 0.3 milliseconds, and a 240 Hz refresh rate. The impressive 800R curvature, among the most notable on the market today, is another remarkable aspect. All these features together significantly impact the price, which is set at over 1,300 euros.
