LG 32UL500-W Reviews

Incredible 4k monitors

By HectorV
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-10

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've really enjoyed this monitor, the quality of picture is incredible and I love that the monitor is very big. The one downside is that the monitor stand is large and is a bit hard to put in a riser if it's not wide enough.

Straight forward setup, clear, reliable

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've now owned it for over a year and may order another one. I like the setup panel, with the refinements only on deeper levels, otherwise it is easy plug-n-play. At one time I had it connected to two computers (one Mac, one PC) and could switch between them on the fly, very easy. No real disappointments.

Tricky to setup but well worth the effort!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The included manual was scant on details and I was having issues getting 60hz out of either of the provided cables (DP and HDMI) on my M1 MacMini. Turns out, I had to turn on HDR and it worked flawlessly. The image is crisp and clear, and as a person that spends upwards of 10 hours a day working on text and design, this product has been a relief for my sore eyes and gotten rid of my regular headaches.

Amazing Value

Very nice monitor for the money. Might have given it five stars if not for being used to working on an iMac. I'm using it for a secondary display for a 2019 27 iMac. The blacks are not as deep and the white's are not as bright. They are good, just not AS good. The 31.5 inches of real estate is very nice though. About the color accuracy: I've tried calibrating and adjusting settings but I just can't get the color to look nearly as good on the LG as it is on the iMac. If this was my main monitor maybe I'd never be able to tell but I have to put all my non-critical color stuff like email and and Finder windows on the LG but my Adobe work has to be on the iMac. I do have one dead pixel about half way between the center and upper left corner. It's really in the worst spot possible but normally I don't even notice it. In fact I didn't even know it was there until I did a monitor test to compare the LG against my iMac screen. I actually just pressed very lightly on the screen and the dead pixel went away so I'll just have to see if it comes back or not! Honestly though, for the price I really think you'd have a hard time finding a better display.

Very nice monitor!

Bad viewing angles but clear and bright

By sun

TLDR; I do NOT recommend this for visual sensitive work at all due to the noticeable colour and contrast shifting, even when you perfectly in the centre and a natural ways away from the screen, but it's good for a casual user and a gamer (what I use it for) as it's not *that* noticeable but definitely a deal breaker if you work with visuals professionally. IMPORTANT: If you plan to use with a floating style VESA arm, the power and visual cords are directly to the left of the vesa mount (when you are in the direction of looking at the screen). The cords may prevent the monitor from getting pushed flatly against the wall as the cords shoot directly outwards and they might cut into the arm mount if your arm extends from the left. This is probably it's greatest flaw other than viewing angles. I bought a 90 degree HDMI and then realized the power cord also sticks out. Top notch of me. I've been on a picky journey with monitors. I purchased this one because rtings had stated in their review that it had the best black uniformity. Unfortunately my unit does have backlight bleed but nowhere near as bad as my pervious curved VA. I miss my curved one but this one is a higher resolution and with some tweaking of the settings you can perfect it so that back light bleed is minimal and the shifting colour and contrast on the sides isn't noticeable. I'm happy with it overall. Holding up for a 4k OLED in the future. The brightness is good to me. I keep it on 0 when just browsing and messing around but I always keep my electronics very low as I'm migraine sensitive. It's still bright at 0 to me. I usually never put the brightness above 40-50 because of backlight bleed in dark scenes of games but tweak contrast and black stabilizer to your visual preference and you don't need it any higher than that unless you're in a room with sun glare.

Great monitor

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After a month I am very happy with the monitor. My only complaint is that it should have better instructions included. Having to stop installation and set up just to download instructions that should be in the box is frustrating.

My second one!

Liked it so much, I got a second one for the office. Now both my desktop setups are dialed.
