Seriously, the side again

One last look at the side

With the exception of the V-shaped base and a hint of red, there's nothing that screams "gaming monitor" from up front.

The back is another story. Though sadly nothing lights up, the red accents and sharp angles give it the right look.

There aren't a ton: two USB 3.0, an audio out, a DisplayPort and an HDMI.

The connectors are at least easy to get to, and the stand has a plastic corral to slip the cables through, which also serves as a spot to hang your headset. You don't have to attach it, though.

The monitor snaps on to the stand's VESA-size mount plate; the button unlocks it for removal.

You can raise and lower the display enough that most people should be able to put it at a comfortable height.

It looks like there are no bezels on the top or sides; they're just hidden. Still, they're pretty thin.

I really like the joystick control for the onscreen menus. Unlike most monitors, LG puts it in the center bottom rather than the side for easy accessibility.

The stand lets you tilt the display back about 20 degrees

The menu design really reflects the monitor's game focus.

All of the presets, with the exception of Reader, are for games -- and Reader is a blue-light reduction mode that's way too dim and warm. They're customizable, though. The FPS modes have boosted response times, and the FPS and RTS options have varying Black Stabilizer settings.

While each of the presets has different default settings, they're all customizable. Unfortunately, you can't attach a refresh rate or G-Sync status to them.

The G-sync status and refresh rate are just informative -- you don't set them here, only via the Nvidia driver.

You get three gamma presets with uninformative names (gamma1!), color temperature settings like "warm" and "cool", and the ability to set the RGB values independently.
