LG 32EP950-B Reviews

Light weight, bright, sharp, and clever control stick

By Andrew
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-25

I bought this to replace an NEC 31 photo editing monitor that developed a red line down the center. This monitor is amazingly bright. It is sharper than the NEC LCD it replaced. Brightness and color uniformity seem very good. It was easy to install because it weighs nothing. I mounted it to a Ergotron LX monitor arm rather than use the included stand. The monitor comes with lots of cables. I like the way the cables come out of one place in the back. One thing that tickled me was the one-button user interface. It is hidden on the underside of the bezel by the LG Logo. Clever that the logo shows you where to push. You push to turn the monitor off and on. But there's more. This button is also a joystick for navigating the menus. This monitor has, by far, the easiest menu system I've ever used. I'm pretty old and have used dozens and dozens of monitors at work and at home over the years. This user interface takes the cake. You'll love it. That said, most people don't adjust their monitors very often so you may only use it a few times a year. But still. It will make you smile. The bezel is pretty thin on the sides which I like because I have two Kali studio monitors on each side of the monitor and want them close enough to the monitor for good stereo imaging when editing music. My only complaint so far is the short cable from the power supply to the monitor. Most monitors have AC in but this LG has a brick supply like a laptop computer. The small power cable coming out of the monitor is easy to snake through the cable channel in the Ergotron monitor stand. But it isn't long enough for the power supply to rest on the floor. I added a bracket on the back of my desk to hold the power supply and all is good now. If the cable had been a foot or two longer I wouldn't have had to do this. I like the thin HDMI cable that came with the monitor. It's a lot easier to connect to my laptop than the thick HDMI cable I had been using.

Spectacular monitor, but problems with Calibrite Display Pro

By Raymond
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-19

This is a truly spectacular monitor with a very wide gamut (my unit measures 100% sRGB, 97% Adobe RGB, 99.1% DCI P3). While the dE2000s don't really set it apart from good LED IPS panels, the image is perceptually much better. Whether the price is worth it -- that's your own call. But I have not experienced a jump in monitor quality like this since 2013 when 30+ inch panels started becoming available. Two issues to note though: I was unable to use Calibrite ColorChecker (fka i1) Display Pro to calibrate/profile. The pure reds will not read correctly. SpyderX works though. I have a thread on DisplayCAL's forums on this topic with measurement reports showing the issue. Issue 2 is that LG's tech support on my support case was non-existent. No reply after 10 days. (Calibrite was similar!!!) I eventually discovered DisplayCAL and isolated the problem to the Calibrite colorimeter. I was on the verge of returning the unit if I could not get it correctly calibrated/profiled.

Stellar Monitor

By Paul
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-26

I'm incredibly impressed at the quality of picture this monitor puts out. Previously working off a 27" apple thunderbolt and a Wacom continuing, which I isn't saying much, but this stacks up and even surpasses some of the reference monitors I use at work. Running a 2013 Mac Pro, a 2021, MacBook Pro 16", a PlayStation 5, and occasionally an iPad and everything runs pretty seamlessly. Build quality is incredibly robust considering the thinness of the screen. I have it mounted to a lighter duty ergotron arm, and it moves around incredibly well and with ease while also supporting the weight.

Stunning

Superb colors, awesome contrast, looks great out of the box. Very slim and la much lighter panel than expected. Bolts right onto a standard medium duty 100x100 vesa mount. Both my 2013 Mac Pro and my 2021 MacBook Pro plug right in and looks beautiful. Plugged in a ps5 too and that also looks really great!

Outstanding SDR, accuracy

By Moyukh
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2021-09-02

Picked up a used model that showed up brand new/unused with zero hours. I tested out two of these; both had great uniformity, no dead pixels or bleed, and very consistent performance. The colors are great, excellent reproduction of several color spaces. Native and BT.2020 are highly saturated and add some pop in SDR; other spaces are extremely accurate and measure very well against other professional OLED monitors (I compared to a PVM-X550, TVLogic LEM-250A, and PVM-2541A). SDR gaming is great too; response time is instantaneous, and response rate is excellent. A bit disappointed with the antiglare ('semi-glossy') panel vs purr glossy glass screens like the Apple XDR and LG 24md4kl, and especially other OLED TV and laptop panels, but it's next to impossible to find glossy windows panels. Most disappointing and the reason for a star off is the HDR performance for media - the brightness isn't there for a flagship, and the limited settings restrict tweaking in HDR mode. Hoping a fw update fixes the latter. Overall a great first gen JOLED panel great for specific uses; I'm excited to see additional variations of these panels.

Fantastic monitor, no regrets.

By Seth

This monitor is really amazing. I had a moment of this is what color looks like?! at first, similar to when I got higher end speakers and said this is what music sounds like?!. I learned a lot about WOLED (current LG tvs) vs true RGB OLED (this panel) and how JOLED makes this specific display. Prior I had a 27 inch HP (S2721QS) and the main use is a workstation PC working from home and occasional light gaming. While the monitor is way overkill for my use (I don't do content creation or color correction), I love it and have no regrets even when considering the steep price point. That's just how it is right now given the manufacturing of this size OLED hardly exists. Sadly this is not as bright as my HP but blows it away in everything else. The viewing angles are crisp and improved and while I previously thought 27 inches was perfect for a workstation, I am now sold on the 31.5 inch size. I have enabled dark mode on every application and website that I can and the colors are just electric and amazing. The stand is ugly at the base but still nicely functional, I have the LG mounted on an Ergotron HX Desk Monitor Arm and even though the LG is far below the weight minimum it works just fine. At first I was confused why the bezels are so large but I've realized it needs some form of casing and it benefits from the large casing when I grab the monitor and move/tilt it on the monitor arm. I could do without the USB hub integrated and my real only dislike of this monitor is the noise the settings menu navigator makes upon pressing. Yes OLED monitors will get less expensive but sadly it will take a lot more time, and by that time micro LED or QDOLED might be the successor. Again, the size, the pixel density, the experience using this in the evening, the HDR, it's all just gorgeous.

insane but some annoyances

By Sean
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-14

The 32 sizing is perfect for photography and videography. I'm coming from a 27 side-lit LED and the contrast difference is just crazy. At first, I wanted to get the 27 27EP950 but that arrived defective with significant shifts in colors and brightness across the screen. The 32EP950 (this product) arrived perfectly uniform. Preset gamuts are nice. HDR is sufficient at around 500 nits but won't blind you like these 2000 nit FALD LED monitors if you are into that. There are a few annoyances. First, the OSD toggle button at center bottom is nice but it's a little cumbersome getting into the menus. You have to click then toggle right to see the settings. If you just toggle right without clicking in first, it goes into headphones volume adjustment. I'm going to bet that around 0% of the targeted users of this expensive screen are not plugging in headphones to their monitors. Second, it comes with a 3-port USB hub on the back which is pretty much useless because anything plugged in (hard drives) are cut off when you hit the power button to shut off the screen. LG should keep these ports live no matter what the state of the screen is in. Third, there's a newer model with same build and screen but comes with a hood and calibrator. There's no way that I could find to just order the hood. Gotta go through 3rd party custom builds.

This monitor looks great. Only thing I wish it was different was the screen finish. It would be great if it had a glossy version available.

Yes, it supports 100x100mm VESA mount, however, keep in mind that the mounting area itself is recessed within the monitor by about 1/4. This caused issue for my quick-release mounts which are not compatible because it hits the monitor when trying to attach.

panels are the same, resolution is exactly the same 3840 x 2160, the newer one has a different style stand and also comes with hood and auto self calibration sensors. keep in mind a calibration sensor is about $300.
