In this day, pushing for more refresh rate on monitors are essential to have an advantage in games especially on shooter and FPS games that are available now and if you’re looking for one, LG has been pushing the UltraGear 24GL600F, a gaming monitor that won’t break the bank.
First, let’s talk about what we can expect from the build of the monitor. The design doesn’t scream RGB and gaming but it definitely feels that it’s a gaming monitor. Personally, I prefer the design of the monitor as this one has a minimalistic and subtle design.
At the back is where we can find the red halo that gives us a nice look at the budget monitor and inside that is where you can find the ports for the monitor. The LG UltraGear 24GL600F comes with a VESA mount too if you don’t want to use the included stand of the monitor.
For the ports, there’s the DisplayPort 1.2, 2x HDMI 2.0, and also a headphone jack. I would prefer the DisplayPort for better performance but the HDMI would do just fine if you want to take advantage of the AMD Freesync that comes with this monitor.
For the stand, it does look fine for me with no quirky design but it does have a red color at the back which looks great along with the great red circle at the back of the monitor. Unfortunately, there’s no height adjustment and also the tilting on the monitor is limited which is expected since this is a budget gaming monitor but we still got here a VESA mount so you can use that one instead.
Thankfully, the LG UltraGear 24GL600F only features a simple joystick just below the monitor which lets you open the menu of the monitor and of course, navigate through it. The menu was no-nonsense and it’s very easy to use and of course, you can easily turn on or off the freesync and also activate the 1ms Motion Blur Reduction and the 144Hz refresh rate.
Now, let’s get down to the display of the monitor. We got here a TN panel and a 1920×1080 resolution. If you’re so used to reading IPS panels on smartphones, the TN Panels has an advantage when it comes to monitors like this to give you a higher refresh rate but the viewing angles aren’t as good as the one on IPS panels. Another thing to notice in this monitor is that bezel isn’t so thin but for some people, they might not
As expected, the display of this one wouldn’t have the colors as we can expect on an IPS panel but figuring out and adjusting it out of the box did helped me in achieving better colors on the LG UltraGear 24GL600F.
Regarding the monitor, this one does not have excellent viewing angles but for its price and considering that this one uses TN Panel, this one is still fine with me. Now let’s go to the good part. First, this one has a really good response time speed of 1ms that surely gives you smooth motions with no trailing when viewing fast motion content or you can choose a 144Hz refresh rate that can give you a really smooth experience on FPS games like Overwatch, Valorant and more.
One of my favorite feature of the UltraGear monitor is the crosshair in where I can place a crosshair on top of the monitor which gives me an advantage on FPS games as I do not need to aim on FPS games sometimes.
If you’re looking for a gaming monitor that won’t cost you an arm and leg then you might want to consider the LG UltraGear 24GL600F. It’s not a perfect monitor but if you want something for gaming, you would definitely love the 144Hz refresh rate of this monitor and also the 1ms motion blur reduction feature of the monitor.
The LG UltraGear 24GL600F is now available for Php12,599.
