Product Overview

LG 32UL500-W is an affordable 32-inch 4K UHD monitor in LG's UltraFine series. Sharing much of the same features with the 32UL750, it drops the USB hub and DisplayHDR 600 support.
Like the 32UL750, the UltraFine 32UL500 uses a VA panel that trades color gamut for higher contrast and faster response time. This VA panel allows for high dynamic range as well as a good gaming experience. Combined with an impressive 95% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, the 32UL500 makes for a good option for general multimedia / home applications.
The same batch of UltraFine 4K monitors also include the higher-end 32UL750-W and 32UL950-W.

Sentiment Score 38%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The LG 32UL500-W has a large screen and 4k resolution that make it a good option for work and media consumption. However, it's hard to place the screen the way you like because it has terrible ergonomics. Also, glare might be an issue because it doesn't get very bright. It has low input lag and VRR support for gaming, but the response time is a bit slow.
