LG 32UN880-B Reviews

Nice but not exceptional

By 32UN880B
Rated 3 out of 5

First the good: The ergo design is very nice. Easy to mount, good cable management, sturdy stand with a wide range of movement. It's also a snap (literally) to attach and detach the screen from the stand. So A+ on design. Now the bad: First, the monitor image less than I expected. Yes it does standard RGB gamut, but what is not stated is that it crushes the shadows to black. The monitor can be adjusted somewhat to compensate but it's not accurate... the black point is still too high. I would not recommend this monitor to anyone wanting to do photography work. However, it is very nice for office work or watching movies and more than bright enough. Second, The monitor and the Mackbook Air (M1) do not work well together using a USB-C connection. The monitor will not detect a connection after the Mac has been shutdown and the monitor has been left to enter sleep mode. Sometimes the monitor will cause the Mac start-up immediately after being shutdown. When waking the Mac from sleep the monitor wakes and connects most of the time. Thankfully, there is a work-around to all this nonsense (pun intended), which is to turn the monitor off/on when the connection can not be established... either by unplugging or holding the monitor settings button for a few seconds... but it is not as seamless as it should be. So in summary, the ergonomics are great, but it's just an average big screen that is good movies or office work, but not for color accuracy or fast motion, but don't expect anything close to premium performance.

Really happy with this monitor. Would be better if you could calibrate it better. Software not that great. But I love the size 32" and the colors are great.

I bought this monitor for increased productivity with working from home from my laptop. One great benefit of the desk mounting system for the monitor is raising my head up instead of slouching over, so my posture while I'm working is dramatically improved.

So far so good

My iMac recently died so I needed a monitor for my new Mac Studio. It's been over 15 years since I have had to buy a monitor not Apple. After many hours of research and reading reviews I chose this monitor and counts not be more impressed. Color grading in my video and graphic work is crucial and this monitor is by far one of the best I have used.if you are serious about your work and results, give this LG monitor a chance, you won't regret it!

After reading all the reviews, I got one in Sep 2022! Loved the screen size and everything other reviews have said. The only thing missing is the auto-input detection, I had to manually switch input. 6 month in, the USB-C stopped working! But LG support was quick to give me all info I needed to send the unit in for repair. Now it's back on my desk and running like new. I got their DualUP set up next to this now :) Did I tell you I also love their OLED TV and own one? Glorious!

It does the thing.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This monitor is kinda boring tbh. Similar to other product. But Theres one thing that matters to all is that software support comes with. You can't find anywhere else. I'm mainly using it with MBP. And LG have done great job at software support MacOS where other brands does not offer.

As a global company, our code is developed by teams all over the world. We often work together by sharing screens to read and review each other's code. However, reading small font on a screen for hours can be quite challenging and can strain our eyes. I was surprised to find that the LG 32'' UltraFine monitor has such high resolution that I am able to read my colleagues' code without needing to constantly increase the font size
