I ordered the LG Ultragear 27GN950 from Amazon.de. I compared all the Amazon EU websites and it was the cheapest in Germany. When I ordered it showed that it would deliver in 1-2 months but luckily it came back in stock in a day or two and was dispatched right after. I got the monitor delivered to Ireland within 4-5 days.

This is the box that it came with.

A giant box. I was wondering if they gave me something extra, as I was one of the first users, but no, I am not that lucky.

Now comes the actual box.

Let’s open the box.

These are the base and the stand. Now, let’s open the “tiny” black box.

This has all the cables and the power adapter. Cables include:

  • HDMI to HDMI
  • DP to DP
  • USB A to USB B

Let’s see what’s beneath it.

Ah, the screen after all. Can’t wait to assemble everything and see how it looks.

This is a 6K wallpaper. I shot this with my Nikon D5600 when I visited Stockholm last winter. Believe me, in real, the screen looks way better.

Ah, the RGB lights. I just love them. You can customize many things in this light. There’s even a mode where the lights reflect the contents on the screen to give you a more immersive experience. There’s one caveat though, this immersive experience feature only works on Windows for now.

See how Forza Horizon 4 looks on this monitor. Note that YouTube compresses the video which results in the shadows being way darker than real, unfortunately.

I got the UE Megablast from Amazon as it was on a Prime deal. Normally, it costs around €160-€220 in Europe but I got it for €110 because of this offer. This is the most expensive Bluetooth speaker from UE. In this blog post, I would do the unboxing as well as give my reviews as I’ve been using it for around two months now.
