The LG 27MK600M-B has a very clean appearance from the front and it comes finished in black color, making it suitable for office spaces. It looks elegant and has a premium appeal with those thin bezels.
There is LG logo in the middle of bottom bezel and the stand has ArcLine design and that looks excellent.

VESA Mount – 100x100mm

The LG 27MK600M-B looks clean from the back and it seems like a very thin chassis giving a thin profile to the monitor. There is a big LG branding on the back with back-facing connectivity ports.
It supports VESA mounting with 100x100mm interface and it is possible to mount this monitor on a custom monitor arm or wall for flexibility.
Thinness – N/A
The bezels on the LG 27MK600M-B are very thin making it perfect for multiple setups. This cheap monitor has a completely frameless chassis which makes it our recommended frameless monitor for office use.
Weight – 10.58 lbs
The LG 27MK600M-B has excellent build quality and has a very heavy weight to it. It weighs 10.58 lbs to be precise and the stand has the most weight of it.
If you have a basic electric adjustable stand, make sure it is powerful enough to work with heavy weights.
Removable Stand – Yes
Cable Management – N/A
The LG 27MK600M-B has a removable stand so when you mount this monitor, it needs to be removed.
This monitor does not have a cable management hole on the stand for routing the cables. It is a stable stand with a lot of weight and it prevents wobble.
Tilt – 15° Backward, 5° Forward
Swivel – N/A
Height – N/A
Pivot – N/A
The LG 27MK600M-B has terrible ergonomics since it only offers tilt function, making it poor ergonomically.
It does not offers swivel, rotation, and height functions because it is a budget-oriented monitor so the manufacturers have to cost-cut on the parts and functions.
Display & Performance

Panel Size – 27-inch
Aspect Ratio – 16:9
Panel Depth – 8 bits (6 bits+FRC)
The LG 27MK600M-B houses an IPS panel with 27-inch screen size and that offers excellent color coverage with wide viewing angles
This monitor comes with 16:9 aspect ratio with panel depth of 8 bits so it can display 16.7 million colors which makes it a colorful panel. It is flat panel, but you can also get a curved monitor from Sceptre at this price.
Resolution – FHD | 1920x1080p
PPI – 81 PPI
This monitor has FHD screen resolution which means 1920×1080 pixels resolution and that results in 81 PPI on the 27-inch screen size.
The screen clarity is not that great because the pixel arrangement is loose on this monitor due to 1080p resolution. A 24-inch monitor with 1080p resolution would look sharper than this. It is still a great choice for reading from a distance because it offers fantastic visibility.
Peak Brightness – 250-nits
The LG 27MK600M-B has excellent 250-nits peak brightness and that is mediocre for a monitor of this size. It seems quite dull in a well-lit room. Even cheaper IPS monitors like Sceptre E249W-FPT have higher peak brightness than this.
Unfortunately, the reflection handling is not that great because of its low peak brightness.
Contrast Ratio – 1000:1
This monitor’s contrast ratio is 1000:1, which is average and not as good as VA monitors.
Many would not notice this, but this monitor displays black as gray in the dark due to its low contrast ratio.

The LG 27MK600M-B has excellent wide viewing angles and the colors do not that shift while viewing from the side making it perfect for sharing your work with clients sitting on the side.
NTSC – 72%
sRGB – 99%
The color coverage is standard 99% sRGB on this monitor, which is excellent for viewing SDR content. It produces rich colors making the viewing experience vibrant and true-to-life.
Response Time – 5ms
The LG 27MK600M-B has 5ms minimum response time and it has decent motion handling for a budget monitor. It is not that crazy motion handler, but it should suffice casual gaming needs.
Refresh Rate – 75Hz
The refresh rate is limited to 75Hz only so that might not interest gamers. Still, it is a smooth monitor for basic use because the 60Hz feels very outdated to be honest. Check our out cheap gaming monitors for high refresh gaming.
Black Frame Insertion – N/A
The LG 27MK600M-B does not have BFI (Black Frame Insertion).
HDR – N/A
The LG 27MK600M-B is not HDR certified.

That’s a Wrap!
The LG 27MK600M-B is a decent IPS budget monitor with a few missed features. It could have been a perfect budget monitor, but its IPS panel has low peak brightness. Also there are no built-in speakers.
I would recommend this monitor to those who need a budget IPS office monitor for using in medium-lit rooms. Also, it is a great choice if you casual game in your free time.
It is not for you if you attend online meetings because it has no speakers or microphone. Also, if your office has bright lightings, simply avoid this monitor, instead get a bright monitor.
