Product Snapshot

Overview

The LG 32GN650-B monitor is a mid-tier QHD gaming monitor, which hit the markets in 2021, to equip gaming enthusiasts with a large screen. It has a super-low 4ms input lag and short 1ms GtG response time to provide an edge during intense gaming sessions. This G-SYNC compatible monitor boasts AMD FreeSync with VRR for tear-free visuals. With a wide SDR color gamut, the monitor also supports basic content creation. Its 3,229:1 native contrast ratio provides epic black levels. Although this 10-bit monitor supports HDR10, poor viewing angles and lack of local dimming interfere with its performance. Its 165Hz peak refresh rate delivers smooth motion and is better than the 144Hz on its predecessor, the LG 32GK650F-B.
