Reviewers have praised the LG 32UL500-W as a 32-inch monitor that is great for office use and media creation. Its 4K screen resolution garnered praise from critics at Display Ninja, as they were pleased with how crisp details and text appeared on the monitor during their experiments. They also confirmed that its impressive 2883:1 contrast ratio made it a perfect alternative to the LG 32GP850-B during their tests, since its 1037:1 ratio isn’t high enough to deliver deep blacks when viewed in a dark room. The display also had reviewers from Rtings impressed with its low input lag of 10.2ms, as they found out that the display had excellent gaming responsiveness.
Still, reviewers were not as impressed with its narrow viewing angles and long 19.9ms response time. Its poor ergonomics also made the LG 32UL950-W seem like a more likely alternative, and its low 60Hz refresh rate is likely to scare gamers away.
