There are monitor manufacturers who regularly change panel technology, resolutions and screen sizes, and there are those who do not.... LG has so far been placed in the second category, with an inexorable focus on IPS, 21:9 and 4K, for general and professional use. At the end of last year LG showed it was also at home in other markets, because this Korean manufacturer finally decided to take the gaming market seriously.
It did so with this 32GK850G, a QHD monitor based on VA technology, with a scanning backlight to counteract motion blur and G-sync - the only model with this feature in this test. It stands on an imposing height-adjustable base and anyone looking to the back will be entertained with a colourful ring of RGB lighting. If you look at the (not curved) screen itself, you see little of it. In terms of connections, in addition to display port and HDMI, we only find a USB 3.0 hub and an audio output.
The test results are convincing: of all 144 Hz screens (the LG can also handle 165 Hz in combination with a Nvidia video card), this LG is on average the fastest, with acceptable overshoot and without input lag. The contrast is also best of the fast screens, and the color error is in any case below three. Unfortunately, the grey deviation is quite high, the viewing angles are very small and the black uniformity is substandard. Moreover, the price with an average of 750 pounds is very high. Still, all things considered, this is the best choice if you are looking for a 32-inch gaming monitor with G-sync. This was a great achievement for a brand that, until recently, almost fully ignored the gaming market.
