Lenovo Introduces Two New 27" IPS Gaming Monitors

Today, Lenovo announced its two new 27-inch gaming monitors with In-Plane Switching (IPS), the sleek-looking Lenovo G27q-20 and the Lenovo G27-20 gaming monitors, both engineered to be stutter-free with AMD FreeSyncTM Premium technology. Shipping in time to welcome the new year ahead with brighter and better tech, our modern monitors maximize home movie entertainment and the visual effects of smooth and speedy gaming.

Lenovo monitors are made to bring value and stylish design to individuals and families who want high-performance technology and are passionate about gaming. As gaming titles have evolved, demand for high-fidelity visual gaming experiences has increased too. Here are a few highlights.
The new Lenovo G27q-20 is a highly functional and flat monitor well-suited for gaming and your home office. It comes with an anti-glare and high-resolution display at QHD (2560 x 1440) offered in a large 27-inch size for immersive gaming. Enjoy an amazing refresh rate of up to 165Hz with AMD FreeSyncTM Premium technology to display smoother gameplay and natural movement on the new Lenovo G27q-20, while the flat 27-inch Lenovo G27-20 offers 144Hz refresh rate and Full HD (1920 x 1080) panel resolution. Both monitors are capable of a 1 ms Moving Picture Response Time (MPRT) and 3 ms response time to reduce motion blur and help to eliminate streaking and ghosting.

With 16:9 aspect ratio, these IPS display panels are built to provide an uncompromised at-home gaming, working or learning experience by providing outstanding color and grayscale performance and wide viewing angles for remarkable clarity. Able to virtually display the same number of colors as a 10-bit monitor, these screens are calibrated to an 8-bit + FRC quality standard for impressive color reproduction and 99 percent sRGB color gamut-all these features combine to help make your creative work shine.

Offered in Raven Black hue with a striking, redesigned V-shaped base that's cleverly illuminated by teal LED accent lighting to signify its gaming legacy, both monitors feature up to 400 nits of brightness and near-edgeless borders on three sides for expansive picture. New winged base brings a more futuristic look and greater desktop stability.

Its adjustable stand is easily maneuvered to create a more ergonomic viewing experience for your eyes, neck, and head. Just tilt the screen several degrees in and out for your personalized comfort and lift for more height. Both monitors are certified by TÜV Rheinland to be flicker free and to emit low blue light levels to help save your eyesight during long gaming sessions with online friends and family.

Treat yourself to the High Dynamic Range (HDR) decoding functionality supported on both monitors for true colors and life-like lighting variations and gradations via common connectors like HDMI and DisplayPort (1.2), as well as audio out connectivity suitable for most gaming devices. Plus, Lenovo Artery software lets you adjust screen brightness, contrasts and colors on your monitor for a truly customized gaming experience.

Pricing and Availability
  • The 27-inch Lenovo G27q-20 gaming monitor with QHD will start at 299.99 USD and is expected to be available starting January 2021.
  • The 27-inch Lenovo G27-20 gaming monitor with FHD will start at 239.99 USD is expected to be available starting in January 2021.

Not confusing at all that the model names are nigh on identical to Gigabytes...

Prices looks quite low so I am very interested to see how they will perform in real tests. Although personally I wouldn't buy a 1080p 27" monitor.

i have the Lenovo Legion Y27q-20 1440p and its quite good, but not stellar...judging by the price, these are lower range models perhaps?
anyway, for a screen that supports FreeSynch and not G-synch these models have a lot of "G"s in their names ;)

If this performs better than the BenQ equivalent to AOC Pandas in terms of pricing it could be a new price/performance budget king. If not, 24G2/27G2 will remain the ultimate 1080p value. QHD price is really good, cheaper than VX27-2KP-MHD, but we'll see how strong panel performance is.

Knowing where VA is at right now, I'm definitely not looking at gaming IPS monitors anymore and would recommend everyone to check it out too.

Why is that? VA panels still have problems with black level smearing no? And the new crop of Nano IPS panels from LG is really really good

Looking at one right now that doesn't smear at all, coming from one that did.
Nano IPS still has glow and is still limited to 1000:1. The only reason to go IPS now is viewing angle or accuracy. Everything else... VA has it.

Viewing angle and accuracy are both important to me, and IPS glow is a non-issue for me since I rarely use the monitor without some ambient light. Last VA panel I tried (Gigabyte G27QC) still had noticable smearing for dark transitions and some black crush at off-axis angles. Ended up returning that monitor and went back to a NanoIPS.

Which VA screen do you have? Maybe your VA is a better one than the one Gigabyte use. Still, LG's IPS panels are so freaking fast though! The motion clarity on my panel is really quite nice.

Gigabyte G34QWC. Its not the same panel though, and the way this one is done... man. I'm one happy camper. Barely even had to touch settings to get the image just right, and that's really a first.

But yes, I won't contest IPS is still a little bit more consistent. And if you haven't got dim lit ambient, then IPS is a top pick.
ObiFrostCurve thx, but nah.
Yeah curve on 16:9 doesn't make sense to me either. On the UW I have now though... definitely adds to immersion. Definitely not a productivity choice, also :D
