The LG 32GP850-B is a gaming monitor that reviewers have praised for its impressive color accuracy and 180Hz refresh rate. It was also found to have wide viewing angles, superb gradient handling, and support for HDR10 content, unlike the MSI Optix G273. However, its ergonomics were not as good, and its low contrast made dark areas look gray.

our Verdict

The LG 32GP850-B is a 32-inch gaming monitor that product testers have hailed for delivering an enjoyable big-screen PC gaming experience, and although it doesn’t have a 4K screen resolution like the LG 32UL500-W its high out-of-the-box color accuracy also left reviewers from Rtings fairly impressed, as they confirmed that images on the monitor were sharp and well detailed. They also found out that the monitor had outstanding gradient handling, and because of this, they concluded that it would also be an excellent option to consider for media creation. During their tests, experts from Display Ninja also noted that the monitor had pretty high image accuracy when viewed from the side and attributed this to two things: its wide viewing angles and impeccable reflection handling which is courtesy of its matte screen finish.

Still, some reviewers raised issues with the monitor’s low contrast and disappointing ergonomics. They didn’t like that they could not make any swivel adjustments and that dark areas were not fairly visible in a dark room.
