Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic screen, best 2.5k monitor I've seen, excellent build & easy to setup & use.

Far too bright & colours up too high out if the box. Adobe & sRGB settings are pretty good though.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
2560x1440: lots and lots of screen area
Excellent colours and very bright
Small pixels: high-ish resolution means you can use larger fonts and enjoy their crispness
No PWM: all brightness levels are flicker-free
The most user-friendly on-screen menu I've ever seen in a monitor
Firmware version 1.42, so hopefully the input lag has been addressed here (cannot test properly, don't perceive any)
Bad points:
16:9 is too wide for everything except movies. 16:10 a better choice.
Small pixels: expect to have to tweak your OS font sizes and zooming in on sites.
2560x1440: you're gonna need a very powerful GPU to play modern games at this resolution.
Cable management non-existent
This is a no-swivel monitor. You cannot even rotate the stand easily.
Colors are over-saturated by default, and the contrast is too low in sRGB mode. It is possible, if you spend some time, to achieve reasonable saturation, high contrast yet naturally looking colors by tweaking lots and lots of settings in the monitor's menu.
Much better view angles than TN displays, but worse than a PVA.

Good points:
Very good image quality, good resolution, overall very happy with it.
Bad points:
You can't rotate it sideways without rotating the stand but this is minor thing.

Manufacturer's Description

Unlike some monitors that are deficient in blue and green colors, LG’s ColorPrime Monitor has 99% coverage of the Adobe RGB and 100% coverage of the sRGB, the standard color spectrum of perfect color reproduction.

ColorPrime Monitor is a great solution for professional photography, graphic design or anywhere highly accurate color is needed.

The 10-bit color display is 64 times more of the color spectrum than an 8-bit color display, re-creating colors softly and naturally without color banding.

We searched for this product high and low,
from House of Fraser to Tesco,
no one is selling it, we're sorry to say,
not 424 retailers nor anyone on eBay,
but please don't worry even if it hurts,
