LG 32UL950-W Reviews

Great Monitor

By Megan
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-31

I use this as a second display with my Mac Book pro for work. I'm a UX Designer and a long-time mac user, and I think the color and clarity of this monitor are just about as good as you can get without it being a mac. Two things that I don't love but aren't deal breakers-I had a hard time figuring out how to adjust the brightness and had to download some separate software to do so. I could also do with a little more brightness in general-I have it on the brightest setting and it's fine but it doesn't get as bright as my mac. All around though, a super solid choice.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have this a month back and it is really great. Colors are amazing, brightness is great I recommend this product. It is a little bit expensive though.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The monitor is great but after a little less than a year the backlight started to fail. It would flicker a bunch, ruining the image quality. Ymmv

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The uniformity of this screen is so bad that I cannot explain. On 100% brightness is fine but when you bring down the brightness is horrifying.

Low Quality Stand for a Decent Monitor

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this monitor and less than a week of having it set up, I bumped into my desk and it fell face forward, and the screen was scratched, cracked and had some serious damage. It was very disappointing as I had to pay for the repair as this wasn't covered under warranty. My other dell monitors and iMac (on the same desk) were completely unaffected by this low impact. I had read 1-2 reviews prior stating that the stand that comes with this monitor is cheap and a bit wobbly. I sent the monitor in for repair and have since received it. So far it seems to work great and I now have the monitor on a high quality monitor arm that is mounted to my desk. I am pleased with the quality. I have noticed a slight flicker on the screen, which isn't too bothersome yet. My biggest takeaway so far is if you're going to invest in this monitor, buy a good quality monitor arm or stand.

Gorgeous display with minor drawbacks

By Walter

I've had this display for four months now and I'm very pleased with it. I use it with a 13 MacBook Pro and they make a great combo. It's reasonably bright, with rich colors and excellent viewing angles. The Thunderbolt interface is a game changer, allowing you to connect your MacBook with a single Thunderbolt cable, with the display acting as a rudimentary dock. This is what separates this from monitors costing half as much. The display includes high quality cables for every interface (Thunderbolt, HDMI, DisplayPort), which is a nice touch. A 32 display with 4K resolution may not be Retina, but the PPI roughly matches non-Retina Apple screens, displaying the macOS interface without any of the ugly scaling effects seen on 27 and smaller 4K displays. I have fairly decent eyesight (rarely wear glasses) and text and graphics look fine to me. Minor quibbles: You can't control brightness or built-in speaker volume from your Mac, and the display has no ambient light sensor. So you will need to manually adjust its brightness to adapt to changing light conditions using the display's one-button menu system. I wish it had dedicated buttons for brightness, at least, but I don't consider this a deal breaker. As for audio volume, I usually use AirPods and rarely use the display's built-in speakers, so that lets me control the volume from my MacBook. This display delivers up to 60W of power, which is suitable for a 13 or 14 MacBook/MacBook Pro. But it will be insufficient to power a 15 or 16 model, so those would require a separate power cable. Finally, the included stand is kind of cheap and flimsy, with a solid aluminum base coupled with a telescoping plastic column. It's adequate, but I'd recommend replacing it with a nice monitor arm.

I bought this monitor for use with my MacBook Pro to edit photos & videos. After researching a number of monitors, I landed on this one and am very pleased. The overall build quality, color performance, size and connectivity have made this an awesome purchase at a great value. If you do photo editing via Lightroom or Photoshop, I would recommend this monitor.

I love this display!!

I've been using this display for a couple of years now and I'm still very happy with it. I use it for CAD and Interior Design as well as Logic Pro. It's very bright and very clear. I purchased and returned 2 other displays before deciding on this one. It's the most similar to the display on my Macbook Pro 16". Highly recommended!

hi I just confuse with the specifications tht been given in here.. this monitor is LCD? but in LG store they said it is LED monitor.. and last question is this monitor support for color grading? which monitor that you think good for color? this monitor or Dell UP2719Q?
Asked by: Kamal
It's an LED HDR Monitor. You don't get those on LCDs. Here's what the actual manufacturers (LG) say about it: "Delicate Color Expression Nanometer-sized particles on the screen's LED absorb excess light wavelengths, realizing richer color expression that accurately reproduces all content, from actual images and videos to CG." I'd most definitely believe their words instead of a retailer that probably has no clue about the manufacturing process. Not to bash B&H, but if there's a mistake in wording, it would be them making the mistake, and not LG
