our Verdict

Critics have praised the LG 32GK850G-B as a decent alternative for users who need an office monitor that can also be used for casual gaming. Product reviewers from Display Ninja were quite impressed that during their tests, blacks remained visible even in a dark setting and attributed this to its stellar contrast ratio of 2622:1. They also lauded its high color accuracy after calibration as something that it has in common with the LG 32GN50T-B, and confirmed that its 165Hz refresh rate was ideal for delivering a tear-free gaming experience as they found out during their experiments. Reviewers from PC Monitors were happy about its gradient handling and felt that it handled reflections quite decently.

However, critics were slightly disappointed with its lack of HDR support and argued that this might point some buyers to the LG 27GN880-B. They also felt that it’s poor ergonomics and narrow viewing angles might make it hard for some buyers to consider.

The LG 32GK850G-B is a mid-tier display that was released in 2018. It has a decent 1440p screen resolution, and even though it is not one of the best computer monitors on the market, it is still an excellent pick for gamers on a budget. Its got a 165Hz refresh rate for tear-free gaming and wide viewing angles for group viewing. It also features a super low input lag of 4.7ms, which is also on par with some of the highest rated gaming monitors in the market. The display’s decent response time of 9.2ms also prevents severe ghosting, and while it does not have HDMI 2.1 ports like the LG 27GP950-B, it has great color accuracy after calibration, as evidenced by a Delta E score of 0.73. Its 2622:1 contrast ratio is also relatively high, making it ideal for dark room viewing.
