LG have announced a slew of new NanoCell-enhanced monitors, one of which boasts a 244Hz refresh rate, at this year's IFA.

There are three UltraGear monitors on offer here, separated by both things like physical size and finer factors like refresh rate. 

First up, you've got the LG UltraGear 27GN750. This 27-inch IPS monitor boasts a 1ms response time, 244Hz refresh rate, FHD resolution, 400 nits of brightness and Nvidia G-Sync compatibility. It's also HDR10 compliant and capable of delivering 99% of the sRGB color accuracy. 

Then, if you want a little sharper image quality, there's the 27GL850. It's also 27-inches, NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible and HDR10-compliant. It only offers up to 350 nits of brightness and 144Hz of refresh but comes enhanced by the same NanoCell tech found in LG's TVs and boasts a greater QHD resolution.

Lastly, there's the LG 38GL950G. It ups the game when it comes to both screen quality and quantity. At 37.5-inches, 450 nits and WQHD+, it's both the largest, brightest and sharpest UltraGear monitor on display. It also touts a 175Hz overclocked refresh rate, VESA DisplayHDR 400 compliance, DCI-P3 98% color accuracy and Nvidia G-Sync support. 

Australian pricing and availability for all three monitors is to be confirmed.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
