I know that the ES07D03 does have a LG Display panel, but is it the same panel as the 27GN950 have or as the 27GP950?
And I know that ‘everybody’ on the internet says both LG monitors have the same panel, but that’s not the case. Because on Rtings you can see that they have a different coating.
Therefore I’ve asked Rtings to check the panels in these monitors. Their answer: ‘‘For the GN, it’s ‘LM270W8-SSA1’ and for the GP it’s LM270WR8-SSA1.’’
Are there other monitors out there using these panels?
Yes. LG makes our display panel, and also uses it in their own monitors. Model 1 uses the same panel as LG’s 27GL850; model 3 uses the same panel as the LG 27GN950. Though these monitors share the same display panel, they do not offer the same feature set as Spectrum.
There seems to be a character missing from the GN screen’s part number.
If you look at this list of LG panels (27", 4K) you’ll notice that all of the part numbers have the format: LM270Wxx-yyyy. There’s always 2 characters between the W and the - in the part number. The GN screen’s part number only has 1 character here: 8.
Looking at that list (which is highly likely not to be a complete list), there’s only 1 part number that ends in 8-SSA1, and that’s LM270WR8-SSA1. Which means it’s likely that both displays are actually using the same panel.
I don’t know enough to talk about the supposed difference in coatings. It’s possible that the coating can be applied separately, perhaps?
