Product Overview

LG UltraFine 32UP50S is an entry-level 32-inch 4K UHD monitor. Unlike most LG monitors, particularly those in the UltraFine lineup, it uses a VA panel which nonetheless delivers 90% DCI-P3 coverage. It can be considered a successor to the 32UL500 from last year.
For convenience, the 32UP50S has built-in Waves Maxx Audio stereo speakers, reducing the need of separate speakers. However, the monitor omits any USB hub, which many users in this segment may prefer.
For light gaming, the 32UP50S supports AMD FreeSync as well as several LG's proprietary gaming features such as Dynamic Action Sync and Black Stabilizer.
Another compromise is that the 32GP50S comes with a simple stand with only tilt adjustment, though it is compatible with 100x100mm VESA mounts.
A similar monitor in LG's 2021 UltraFine lineup in the 27-inch class is the 27UP600.
